Happy crafting!

Project Idea: Crystallizing Palm Wax Candles

Palm wax is an all-natural vegetable wax made from oil palm.  It's a unique wax in that it makes a wonderful crystal/snowflake pattern in candles.  Surprise your loved ones by crafting these great candles!

Making a Padded Book Cover

I'm getting ready to "scrapbook" my recipes.  I bought a plain 3-ring binder that will hold 4 x 5 sheets of paper.  I want to do a padded cover for it, but I'm not sure what kind of glue to use and how to finish it off on the inside.  Does anybody have any ideas?

Looking for a Hacky Sack Pattern

My kids love to play with their hacky sacks and I thought it would be a great a idea to make some new ones for them myself.  Has anyone seen any free patterns?

Soy Vs. Paraffin

Hey candle makers, what are your thoughts on soy wax vs paraffin wax?   Do you use both?  Do you like one better than the other?
