I Made Candles!

Yesterday, at my friend’s bridal shower, we made Soy Candles! I learned that soy is better for the environment than regular wax, and healthier to breathe in. The pieces reminded me of mozzarella cheese. Luckily, we made them in glass jars (not the pulling way) so that I didn’t end up with something like this:…
