Christmas gift idea Altered candles

I think im going to make these candles for Christmas gift exchanges this year.. They are fairly simple and you can use any extras laying around.. I used the medium Yankee candle for this one we have a discount store that sells these way cheaper thank you can buy off of the candle company.. I cut a piece of the paper any kind about 12 inches wide or measure around your candle I then cut a piece of contrasting paper about 1 inch wide to put on the piece around the top.. Just added some roses i had that matched the paper well and a bow or any other embellishments you may have . Just use your imagination..

Life is a beach block

I am really in love with anything to do with the beach.I have a home in Florida that I dont get to visit as much as I like.. I really enjoy vinyl projects and making the glass blocks.. They are very easy to make.. I buy the blocks at the local lumber store for less than $5.00 my husband drills the hole in the bottom with a diamond cut bit.. I then put in a 30 lite set and decorate it from there. On this block i used all the cuts from Cricuts Life is a Beach this is one of my favorite cartridges.. YOu really cant tell but the bow on top is a lighted bow I made from ribbon after Christmas at wm for about 50 cents.. thanks for looking at my blog and please join as a follower

My granddoggies

Publish Post

Ok call me a little insane but here are my 2 best buddies in the univerise... This is Gizmo and Roxy they are pembroke welsh corgies one is a fawn the other is tricolor... They make fantastic pets and companions.. they even have their own little language kind of like the Gremlins hence forth the one name of Gizmo.. We had a beautiful corgi named Foxy but she became ill suddently and died suddenly by a very unknow diesese pyometria which means if at times you dont get your female fixed her insides can get very inflamed and kill them .. So please get your female spayed so you never have to go to the sadness of losing your friend.......
