Messy Monday

I just finished two huge deadlines, working through the weekend,
so I woke up this morning and decided that today was going to be a messy fun Monday.
A friend gave me a huge hunk of beeswax a while ago,
so I decided to melt it down and make candles using plastic egg cartons as molds.
The results are kind of messy - I've never worked with beeswax before,
so they could definitely use some finessing, but they smell wonderful,
and the imperfections make them look good enough to eat!
...and a few walnut candles too.
Then I baked an almond yogurt cake, I still have to ice it and assemble it,
but I tasted a corner and it is delicious.
Also, I started on a few new pendants, these ones are sitting to dry from their first coat of resin.
This is what my kitchen table looked like at around 1pm....probably not the best way to work,
but definitely messy fun.


  1. Ok - I'm watching your blog (at work - but shhh ;)) and I must say that it's a really inspiring "place" :) I like that you're searching, creating and playing on so many fields. It brings many interesting ideas! Wish you a lot of creativity, don't stop :)
