Merry Christmas Candle

Tomorrow, I leave for the Stampin' Up! Founders Circle Achievers Trip. I look so forward to this trip every year, as I get to spend time with over 100 amazing ladies…just relaxing and being pampered. A really exciting part this year for me is that there are 5 of my team members who earned this trip along with me! How cool is that?!

 After the Founders Circle part of my trip, I will be staying for an extra few days for the Advisory Board Trip. I cannot wait to get to know the 7 amazing ladies that were also chosen this year to be on the Advisory Board. I am just so excited to see what Stampin' Up! has in store for us!

I've left a detailed schedule for my hubby for the week…and here's hoping that he'll actually look at it…lol. I don't normally leave my family for this long…so, I'm extra nervous for this one. I figure they'll all survive, so I'm just going to make myself relax about it. 🙂

Today's project is to show you how you can start with a simple candle and make something really amazing! SAFETY WARNING FROM JOSEE: 🙂 Remember to be careful not to light it with the paper on though as you don't want it to catch on fire…but, it's adorable to decorate! Some people have burned down the candle enough so they can put a tea light in it and then it would be safer. Make sense?
