Sorry for the super cheesy title…But I am just a bit excited…
Remember that goal I posted about my PC???
Well…somehow I got it running again!
I had to delete pretty much everything
including photo shop…boo!!!
But at least now I can get the pictures off my
camera and play “I’m a big bad blogger lady”
So, I am one of those crazy people that
uses or tries to use every last drop of something.
I have been known to cut open lotion containers…
add water to shampoo and conditioner to ensure they
are sufficiently used up and save my “candles in a jar”
for the purpose of melting the extra wax for a brand “new”
A couple weeks ago, it was raining (I know, shocker.)…
I was bored…and wanted to light lots of candles.
I found a few “used up” jars and decided to
make some new candles.
Here is what I did…
I put the “candle jar” in a pot on the stove…
in about an inch of water, and turned on the heat.
While my wax was melting away..
I readied my container…
I just love mason jars. They are
so very useful…and built for heat.
Once my was was melted I pored it into the waiting
While the first batch of wax set up, I started
melting the second jar of left over wax…
I melted some leftover wax from a freestanding
candle too. It was white…
Aren’t they pretty?
I got a little carried away adding text to the pictures..
I might avoid that next time.
Now. Should you choose to attempt this fun little project,
Please take the proper safety precautions.
Have at least a potholder handy…safety glasses if you think
they might be necessary…and even a fire extinguisher if you are
Be careful!!! You are messing with hot stuff!!!
If you burn your fingers…or your house
to the ground…I will totally say “I told you so”!
