These are the first "prototypes" for the candle company that I plan on starting. Really I'm just going to experiment at first and find out what works, then I'll look at selling them. But I have to say, these are my first candles ever, and I'm very excited. Thanks to Brent's mom, she taught me that making them wasn't that hard, after she walked me through, step by step. Thank you so much for all your help!! I'm so excited, and my kitchen is being made over into a candle factory. If you've never made candles before you should try it, I love it, and you will too!!
This is the wonderful journal that Brent's mom made for me over Christmas. I absolutely love it!! We spent a couple of days shopping, went to the bookstore, my favorite place ever, and I started talking about writing a children's book, but didn't really have the guts to do it. Well Brent's mom is amazing, if ya'll know her then I don't have to tell you, and she gave me the push to just do it. I've already started a rough draft, and so far it's coming along. I forgot how much I love to write. It's like creating your own world. I'll be sending Mrs. Dawn each chapter when finished so she can illustrate it for me, something I'm so excited about her doing, being that she is an amazing artist, and a soon to be published one at that,(I'm really laying the sugar on, I know, haha)!!

I so far haven't done much with this blog, but I soon plan too. My boyfriends mother has inspired me to blog a little and get crafty. I'm pretty excited actually, it's just finding time to fit blogging into my very busy life. I also plan on posting some more pictures soon, so wish me luck, I'm not so bright when it comes to uploading.
