The Transformation Has Begun!


I am cleaning up the kitchen!

No more candle making until Christmas is 
past....
unless I want to, that is...
Just this morning as I was processing leftover
wax into tea lights and other random candle
forms Chelsea asked for a layered orange
and cream candle to
go with her upcoming new room design.

Well, it just so happened that I had a 
generous amount of french vanilla 
leftovers.

So...I as write the first layer of her candle is 
setting up so that I can add to it.
Something tells me that I am not completely
done with these kinds of projects yet...
but...you can see the countertop!
That is so exciting!!

Today's goals include setting up two 
Nativity sets and taking down the 
temporary table that has been in our 
kitchen all Fall.
A gift from my brother many years ago.

I love makeovers of all kinds 
and so this week's changes around here
are like the ultimate 
self created makeover.

It has been such a wonderful candle season!
Tonight I will deliver the final batch of fundraiser orders
for 2010!

Thanks for bearing with me as I have 
whined, complained, rejoiced and
even begged.

Hope your Christmas week is a very happy one!

I may never burn my Hot Chocolate candle in the Santa mug, but I LOVE it. I am always sniffing it. Ha ha It smells yummy. Have a wonderful week. See you Christmas Eve.
