Happy New Year’s Eve!
Here’s a quick round-up of the gifts I made this Christmas! (There will be a part 2 since some of the gifts I made haven’t been received yet and I don’t want to ruin the surprise!)
The first gift I made this year was a pencil/paintbrush roll-up for Hani. (I was so pleased with it, I made another one for Lee later!)
Finally, I made a big batch of candles for my parents, friends, and coworkers. I’d never made candles before but it was really fun! These are made with beeswax pellets melted in a double burner, scented with brown sugar oil, and poured into teacups to set. I went to the thrift store (four or five times!) with a list of people I’d be making candles for and picked out teacups that reminded me of them; it was really fun! (The first set of pictures is the process, the second is a few of the finished products.)
