What a difference a week makes

The last few days have been delightful with warmer temps, daffodils blooming, birds singing.  A far cry from a week ago when we were trying to melt snow.  I love my daffodils they are so bright and cheery.  I am not sure if I will have tulips as they look a bit worse for wear from the late snow storms.  Of course with all the blooming and budding comes my dreaded allergies.  I am hoping they will be short lived.   

Last Sunday I stopped at the Dollar Store and was able to get candles and flame-less candles.  I had wanted to try stamping on them for a time but never seemed to find the right size candles.  Well I finally found what I was looking for.  WaterMark_2018-04-24-16-51-25  This is one of the flame-less candles that I did.  I found they are a bit more challenging to work with.  Here are the others I did and a box I made to go with a few of them.  I hope to sell them this weekend at the Fennimore Craft fair.  I think they will make great Mother’s Day or Graduation gifts.  I hope to get a tutorial done this week so you are able to have fun doing this technique as well!
