I have made many fragrance filled clamshell candle melts. The above is an example of one. I use the six clamshell packaging. The clamshell candle melts are more affordable than my punchcup candles. One can purchase 3 clamshell melts for the price of one punchcup candle and can be shipped for less price due to their lighter weight. If you have a particular fragrance you would like to purchase, just email me or make a comment. Suggestions for summer fragrances are Bless Your Heart (bergamont and sea salt blossom), Hush Your Mouth (mainly gardenia and jasmine), and a current favorite Sweet Southern Lemonade (mainly lemon verbena and lemon curd).
The above is a photo of my latest soap creation. The fragrance is our Bless Your Heart creation which is a combination of Bermont and Sea salt blossom. It reminds me of the salty air of Saint Simons Island. The soap is a combination of goats milk and clear glycerin soap. Each bar is hand cut with imperfections of weight and thickness. Each weighs approximately 3-4 oz and is 2.5″ square bar. The bars are $5.00 each. Simply click on the Add to Cart button to purchase.
I love candle melts! They are very affordable. The photo above is my first cupcake candle melt. The fragrance is pink watermelon, a surprisingly strong sweet perfume with a hint of melon. Buy this and I will add an empty clamshell to your package to pour any leftover melted wax into to keep for another day.
The bath bombs pictured are shrinked wrapped and placed in a hard plastic ornament ball. These two seals help keep out the moisture. Moisture activates the citric acid, one of the ingredients that makes the bubbles.
Spring and summer bathbombs are Hug your neck (Strawberries and cream), Hush your mouth ( jasmine and gardenia), Bless your heart (sea salt blossom and bergamont), and Sweet Southern Lemonade with a sprig of mint (lemon verbena and garden mint). The bath bombs weigh about 3.5 oz and cost $6 shrinkwrapped and placed in a plastic ornament shell.
My punch cup candles are a best seller! They come in a variety of fragrances and types of cups. I find the punch cups at estate sales and thrift stores. I use soy wax and fragrance oil. My standard fragrances are Bless Your Heart (sea salt blossom and bergamot), Hush Your Mouth (jasmine and gardenia), Livin in High Cotton (lavender and clean cotton), and I Do Declare ( orange blossom and fruit slices). Spring and summer fragrances are Southern Ladies’ Party Punch ( a variety of blended fruit fragrances such as peach, lime, lemon, orange with coconut) and Sweet Southern Lemonade (lemon verbena, coconut, and garden mint). The punch cups run $15 ea.
If you are like me, you are ready for the children to go outside! There are plenty of art activities they can make or draw outside. Plenty of children of all ages like to draw with sidewalk chalk. Children can be inspired by drawing a large circle or square and adding a variety of lines and shapes and colors. Older ones can print out abstract paintings of Picasso with noses going in one direction and eyes in another. Tomato Soup cans of Warhol can be inspirational.
Mizz Mac’s Easy Artsy Jungle Animals Art Projects is a group of 9 art projects organized from the beginner to the more advanced student. The jungle animal art of Henri Rousseau, Albrecht Durer, and the Oxacans is mentioned as artists in history to view. The projects begin with working with shapes which can be used to reinforce the geometric common core standards of math. Science and nature are also reinforced with the inclusion of observation drawing of jungle flora and fauna. These projects can be visual presentations of what has been learned academically.
The group contains a content page, an introduction, a list of jungle animals, supply lists, and examples of each finished project.
