Special holiday candles...for you to make


Add a little extra



Add a little gold leaf, see how here




A little paper, a few bottles of acrylic paint, pear and leaf stamps made from old computer mouse pads




Apply pressed flowers and pressed vines with hot wax




And, if you didn't press your own flowers, don't worry, I have plenty in my Etsy shop

  3. Dear Theresa, I think that you would like pressing flowers. No special equipment needed. I place flowers within pages of old books, stack the books and add a heavy weight on top.

  4. Dear Karena, I'm always so happy when you stop by. Of all the projects I get involved in, gold leafing is the easiest to do. Why not give it a try.
