Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am so grateful for so many things today, especially all of you who faithfully follow, encourage and motivate me to share my love and passion for creativity.  Truly Grateful.....
I wanted to share this beautiful candle that my dear friend Joan made and suprised me with this week.  I just love how she put it all together.  She also gave me the most inspiring and thoughtful card- truly grateful

I shared with you a few weeks ago the birch candles that my daughter Shaelyn made me.  Well, she has made more, so I decided to bring the outdoors in this Thanksgiving by dressing up my table with her creations.  I also added the birch disks that we cut up and faux-wood burned. 
We are ready for my entire family to come together and celebrate.  However your Thanksgiving finds you, I hope your having a wonderful day.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Chrismtas Candles

Here is another project we made at my classes the other night.  Christmas candles.   Have you tried this technique?  You take a piece of tissue paper and stamp your image on it.  I happen to use our Stampin Up! Music Note roller wheel stamp, and stamped it in Soft suede ink.  You then take your embossing tool out and carefully hold the tissue on to the candle and heat it with the tool  the tissue melts right into the candle!  It is so fun to make and try!
Then all you do is add your favorite ribbon and some beautiful butterflies and you have a pretty candle to give someone special.

Products Used:
Cardstock:  Real Red, Garden Green, tissue paper
Accessories- Basic Pearls, Real Red Taffeta Ribbon, soft suede ink
