Behind the Scenes- December

BEHIND THE SCENES: AWAY FROM PAINTING  With candle drops almost weekly through December, I was very busy packing and focusing on orders, thank you so, so much! I hope you all enjoyed the candles over the festive time!   As soon as the last bags went to the post office, I conked out, and spent time with my children for their Christmas school break.

Behind the Scenes- September

BEHIND THE SCENES: AWAY FROM PAINTING    I really can't jabber on about what I've been up to.. as I have been mainly candle painting non stop! I have had to embrace the kids being in school and cracking on to catch up from the summer holidays, so September has felt non-stop in a good productive kind of way!    ANYWAY I CAN'T WAIT ANY LONGER! First up, I'm really excited to show you all here first, what I have been working on… as I have a lot of messages every day enquiring about my candles, so I would like to present this new e-book, an in-depth comprehensive step-by-step guide behind how to paint candles, including the tools, brushes, methods...
