Stepping outside ...



The house was so quiet this afternoon.  My husband was in his usual spot in the house (his computer chair), my oldest daughter was shopping with a friend, my youngest daughter was gone to a sledding party and sleepover at one her classmates houses and my youngest son was spending the weekend with my sister.  It was just my 12 year old and I moving about the house.  After doing some paperwork and then settling down for some reading time (we are reading MAUS together) he begged for some PS3 time so I found myself weighing my options ... crack open a textbook and get a jump on the weeks homework, put the finishing touches on my year end paperwork, housework ...  as I sat there I kept looking at my Stamping supplies.  On a whim I decided to try to figure out how to stamp on a candle.  I had seen some candles on Booth #32 while blogging and voila ... my creations.  I love this technique.  What quick and easy gifts you could make for people.  Of course having great products (Vintage Vogue and Priceless stamp sets) win-win color combinations (Stampin' Up makes it so easy) how can you go wrong?!
    Happy Crafting!

I agree...I'm thinking that first one would make work beautifully in a certain person's purple and green bedroom...
Beautiful!
