Workshops and My Shop News

Posted on May 21, 2017 at 10:20 AM Comments comments (0)

My May workshops are all booked and, once, they are done, I'm closing up for the summer. However, I suddenly discovered - drum roll, please! - candle making! A friend gave a candlemaking kit last Christmas and I never got around to doing anything with it. That is, until last weekend. It was raining and I was bored. My TV is on the blink (good job, too, as I had no idea how much time I wasted watching someone else's creations!! - more about that later. Having read m...
