Candle project

Happy Valentine's Day!
I wanted to try something I found on Pinterest.  They used regular ice cube trays.  I figured I would be different and use a Heart silicone tray.  It worked perfectly.
Little tip once the wax is melted use a plastic spoon to put into the tray.  Learned by a mishap of pouring it and it made a mess..mess...mess.  LOL...
Great to make these with Yankee candles or others that have been melted down so you don't waste them. 
You put these in your tart warmers and they produce the scents you love.
Hope you have a wonderful week.
smiles...always, Tammy

My new craft table

If you seen the room wouldn't believe it.  This is a room addition that I took over.  As you can see by the carpet the boys had some good times in there. (Pastel chalk on the carpet) 
I've got to look for some runner as it will not come up at all.  I've tried a bunch of things that were on Pinterest and they did not work on the chalk.  Great for spots though.
I was so excited to find a great deal at Ikea for the table tops.  They had them new in box at Ikea for $18 in the clearence section and I thought too good to be true as the regular ones on the floor were $70 a piece.  Well when I opened the sealed boxes  they had dings on the corners of one side.  Not a major problem...I could deal with that with all that I saved it was worth it.  So I used 3 of them...6 shelving units like the two you see.  Great for storage...I made my chair cover look cute and had to extend it seeing my chair was a bit bigger.  Added some pink bows too.  It is my girlie room. 
I am not done with the room as I am trying to figure out a cover for the air conditioner when it is not in use.  Thinking a frame with fabric.  We will see.
Hope you all have a great day!  I am off with my bestie for a day of fun.
