Here are some recent candles I made.
I love the colors...everytime I make candles I tweak the formula just a bit.
To this batch I did the regular soy and beeswax but about only 5% beeswax.
The colors turn out so much brighter and I think the candle burns more smoothly.
Not to say that with more beeswax that the colors aren't beautiful, just a bit muted.
I hope to make more candles this weekend...although I'm making a quilt for my son and later for the one-to-be.
And I just picked up some fabrics I got from a fellow freecycler.
So maybe, I'll be sewing a bit this weekend as well!
Hope you have a good one!

We went out to Washington Farms to pick Blueberries last week.
Here is the gallon that we spend about an hour picking.
Now, well...they are long gone...yummy in our tummies!!
We hope there will be another cool overcast day soon so that we won't melt.
Last night we went about our yard and picked about a cup of Blackberries....that was about all for this season.
We came inside and made a delicious blackberry sauce that we poured on top of ice cream....man was that ever delicious!!
The sauce was made by processing the blackberries them boiling them with some brown rice syrup and a splash of stevia.

Here are the pics for the Burley Encore that we have for sale.
This is the best bike trailer the
Burley Encore Bike Trailer...AWESOME!!
It's frame is lightweight made of
aluminum and easy to use, attaches VERY quickly to an adult bike
and has an flex connect mechanism so that if the adult bike falls over
the trailer remains upright.
It holds 1 or 2 children (max load 100
pounds) and has 5 point safety harness (with 2 height positions for
older and younger children) and a seat belt for either configuration.
There are 2 pockets inside for the kids necessities (snacks, cups, etc)
and a large storage
area in the back that can even hold a small cooler, grocery bags
The front panel has both a screen and a rain shield (not all
models have the rain/wind shield) that can be used interchangeably.
There are also windows on each side for an all around view.
It folds flat with the removal of a pin on one side of the top bar.
The pull bar folds under the trailer and the wheels are quick release style
if you need it even flatter just pull them off!
It is jogger compatable and includes the attachment,
which I never took out of box.
Bought last year, so it's a 2006 model and kept
in the garage out of rain.
Please feel free to contact me regarding any questions!!
