First candle gel

Yesterday was my "craft day". Not necessarily beading at all, but I love crafts and love to learn new things.
I've had a beautiful gel candle about 10 years ago from a store. I really enjoyed how beautiful it was. When I discovered gel candle making book from library, I decided to learn. I gathered all the items needed and finally I was able to make one. Since I didn't know how much I should add the gel to melt, it came out short, but all in all, it turned out beautiful and I enjoyed watching my gel candle lit last night.

Tissue Paper Flowers

My library will have a craft day next Tuesday, which I am interested to go to, but with work and boys' after school activities, I won't be able to go. The craft day will learn how to make tissue paper flowers. So, to remedy my disappointment of my inability to attend, I learned how to make it myself through online sites, got the necessary items and I made my own craft day today.
Turned out good. Never too late to learn new crafts and things.
