Snowy lights..

Ok, remember the FallY'all giveaway? Well I am finally posting pictures of the candles I painted for that giveaway. I actually made them two weeks after the giveaway ended. But it seems there was a bit of a delay since I had to actually get to a store to buy the candles first. Then after I painted them I had to figure out how I was going to ship them. When I suggested I would make these it never occurred to me that I needed a transportation vessel to get them to their new owners. I looked all around my house for two suitable containers and I found nothing. I kept delaying hoping that something would turn up and it did. I recently took a trip to Walmart to buy tape to replace the numerous rolls of tape used by Sweetpea in her decorating efforts and there they were in the tape aisle, an entire collection of boxes for sale. Now I don't think I have ever purchased a cardboard box since I am the hoarding type but I shelled out the 77 cents a piece for some sturdy new boxes. I finally had some way of transporting these candles from PA to WA and IL. After boxing these babies up I sent them on their way and it only took me an additional 2 days to get to the post office before they closed.

If you want to take a peek at what was in the boxes here is a picture...

Hopefully the winners will enjoy them. I am not an artist by any means but I think these are cute and I like making them. I have 9 made so far and now I have to finish the rest of my painted presents before Christmas (no more snowmen though - I also do some Christmas trees, moose, and Santa Clauses for variety).

I hope all of your Christmas projects are going well too!
