I’ve been played with wax all night… YAY!!! Here are the results.
White = Clean Cotton, Purple= Lilac, Blue=Ocean, Yellow=Honeysuckle

These are the candles I will be bring to the slumber party for favors. Initially, I was going to do them in Martini glasses but all the cute martini glasses were not in my budget πŸ˜› lol Soooo, I found some really cute, yet inexpensive glasses and viola!
I hope the ladies like them.

I made some soap for the house tonite too, but I remembered a lady at my job asked me to bring her some. SOooo I wrapped 2 bars for her. πŸ™‚

ANDDDD I am muy happy to show off my very 1st FINISHED OBJECT! I have finished the keyhole scarf. It took me 3 days. I’m hoping that as I knit more, my accuracy and speed will increase. I swear ripping was the WORST! lol I’m EXCITED!!!! WHooo HOOOO!!! Knitting is fun!

I used a 100% Super wash Merino Wool, Color #AC124 I purchased it at my LYS but you can get it @ http://www.j-knits.com. I knitted with a size 6 needles.

up next… a hat for the hubby and some booties for a lady @ my job who is preggers πŸ™‚

I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t want to work for someone else for the rest of my life. Well I already knew that, but didn’t know what I wanted to do. WElllll… I’ve figured it out… You’re *looking* at the next owner/operator of an African-American Bookstore. (Yep! I’m speaking those things that be not as though they were). Now to get to researching, praying, really researching, praying, some more researching, and yep you guessed it some more praying! LOL

Anywhooo! It’s late… or early.. depends on where you’re at!

Have a Great Day!
