Creating with Friends!

Hello...today is the day I am sharing some of the photo's Jimi and I have from the adventure we took last week.  In the last post, I mentioned that we had taken an adventure and shared a video with you of our travels.  If you have not had a chance to see that video, scroll down to the previous post to watch it or you can see it here: http://youtu.be/-LbJZ_lajz8
That particular day was so much fun for Jimi and I!!! We had a great time visiting friends on their Farm and learned how to make beeswax candles.  It was truly a great experience!!!

My friend Robin Armstrong-Seeber(Robin is also my Business Partner with RD Productions...you can visit us here: https://www.facebook.com/RDproductionsforartists  )took the photo above...it is a look at the melted beeswax that we used in order to make the hand dipped, lamplighter and taper candles.  For those of you that do not know what "Lamp Lighter" candles are, I will explain.  In colonial times, there were no matches or electricity. A thin taper like candle was used to light the lanterns in and around the house...hence the name, " Lamp Lighter."   I think that is pretty neat and so inventive, wouldn't' you say?

In addition, we made votive candles.  Robin and her Hubby Roger, sent us home with so many goodies!!! They had packaged up a gift of mixed Beeswax candles and supplies to start making our own candles along with a great bottle of wine.

Take a peek at the lovely Tapers we made with Robin and Roger.

...and the votive candles we placed in our Candle-scape that sits on our coffee table at home.

It is such a pleasure to burn Beeswax candles.  They are extremely environmentally friendly, do not emit harmful fumes for people and animals to breathe and smell so amazing....just like honey!
Jimi and I are super excited to begin making these candles ourselves.  We spend so much money on candles as we always buy and burn them, so we figured it would help us to save money.  Most importantly though, not only is it better for our health to use these candles, we enjoyed the process and will have fum makeing them too.  Win, Win, I say!!!

Lastly, I wanted to mention that Robin and Roger raise chickens on their Farm and gave us two dozen beautiful Fresh Brown eggs to also take home.

We had a great time enjoying Friendship, Food and Fun...can not wait to visit with them again!!!

Much Love,
Milady Leela
