Dear Yankee Candle, Buh Bye.

A week or so ago I announced to FacebookLand that I was going to begin yet another project/obsession:
Candle Making!
At $25 a pop,  I was seriously spending close to $100 a month on candles.  As much as I LOVE candles, that was just plain silly.  I did a little research on the web and found this excellent tutorial on soy candle making.

I then shopped around on Etsy and Ebay and purchased the needed supplies.
The soy wax chips finally arrived day before yesterday 
Ta da!!!

Carmel latte, Dark chocolate fudge, Cinnamon latte, y  Dulce de Leche.
This was so incredibly easy to do and I'm going to save tons of money from now on.
I'm  waiting for a few other fragrance oils to arrive, so I can whip up a  more candles.
Banana cream pie and Irish cream coffee, you can't get here soon enough.
I'm now ready to learn how to make decorative soap!
