Look What I did!

O.K. everyone hold onto your seats...... but I attempted some salt dough bowl fillers last night. I read up on every recipe that was out there I think. I have seen better but I'm just glad that I attempted them and they turned out A- O.K. I'm proud of them and i know i will get better with them the more that I do. It also has given me the confidence to go ahead and try some stitching.(Little baby steps) I also want to try the candy canes,the grudge silicone lights, the grudge taper candles, the grudge candlesticks, the grudge EVERYTHING LOL LOL. Here are some pics that I attempted to take as I was going thru the process.

Here they are just came out of the oven.I wish the picture was clearer Sorry!!

Here is the wax in the coffee can in a double boiler.

Here is some drying

And the finished product.I wish I had taken better pics. Oh yeah, and this grubby jar I made a couple of weeks ago. I got this idea from Char!
Anyways, I wanted to share this with all my friends.

I won't be on here until late Sunday or Monday. My DH is taking me ATV"ing in Georgia this weekend. We will be leaving tonight. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. And I hope I win the Giveaways!! LOL-Juanita

I melted some old cinnamon candles and added instant coffee and more cinnamon to the mix.I am going to have to go to Hobby Lobby and stock up on my scents.Any suggestions?

Linda said...

Great Job!! I learned from Robin over at the Robin's Nest about a setting on the camera called Macro and it is for close up shots like that. It helps with the focus. Thought I'd share! :-)

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend away!
