How to spice up your candles (and more)

A while ago, I think it was last month, I went to Panduro to buy some stuff for my christmas cards. Then I found something really cool. It was ‘tattoos’ you can put on your candle lights to spice them up. Brilliant. I bought a christmas set for myself and some angels for a friend of mine as a part of a christmas gift.

It’s really easy to do it and it looks so cool.

This is what you do:

  1. Pour water into a bowl
  2. Put the tattoo in the bowl of water.
  3. Let it lay there for 15 seconds.
  4. Peel the tattoo of the paper.
  5. Place it on the candle. Press it gently down. Try not to make any air-bubbles in the tattoo.
  6. Let it try up.

Voila. Then you have a candle looking like this:

It’s cool, ay? I just love it! I have two candles like this. The white candle comes from IKEA and is leftover from my sisters wedding in August. It was many leftovers which barely had burned anything at all and I grabbed five of them. There are a lot more at my parents house. They have a small bag with around 20.

I’ve made five christmas cards today. It went fast. I had those five done in no time. And they became great too. One of them is maybe my fave so far! Pictures of them will come later. While making these cards I watched a clairvoyant named Lisa. Uhm.. don’t remember her last name and I’m too lazy to look it up. Really interesting show. She talks to people from the past / help out peope etc. it’s always something sad on that show and I usually shred a few tears watching it!

Oh. I got to tell write about something cool. My friend Gro, I have had some difficulties to know what to give her for christmas. We never buy each other expensive things, but we do give each other something. Not always easy to know what to buy. While making my christmas card, I came up with this brilliant idea. I’m gonna make her some christmas cookies. They’re called ‘peppernøtter’. Directly translated it would be peppernuts. I know she loves them. And now, when she’s pregnant and soon is gonna deliver her first baby, I’m sure she doesn’t have much time for christmas cookie baking. So that will be a perfect gift.

What I need to buy is something store them in. I will go downtown tomorrow after work to look for something. I’ll buy the ingredients too and maybe make the dough. Gro is celebrating her birthday on friday (bunch of girls going out eating) and that might be the last time I see her before Christmas, so I want to give it to her then.  This makes me excited :)

It’s time for bed. Nighty night!
