Clamshell Candle Melts

Clamshell Candle Melt $5.00

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).



SBV bathbombs

a sampling of my bath bombs –

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

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.

Summer Art for Kids

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.

I have a product containing art lessons for the outdoors for sale in my store on teachers pay teachers. Here is the link:

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week

Back when I taught school and there was Teacher Appreciation Week, the parents would overload the workrooms with food. Those of us who were special teachers would sometimes roam the three workrooms and see who had the best food! A few years later the parent group organized the food and started bringing in the same brunch casseroles and fruit for all the the workrooms. It ceased to be fun!

To celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week Teachers Pay Teachers is having a site wide sale May 9-10! Everything in my store is 20% off and with Teachers Pay Teachers added 10% that makes my products going for 28% off. Don’t ask me how that works out because I am no mathematician. That’s just they say! Just be sure to add the code at the top of my store page when you check out. To get to my store just click on the sale graphic here! Mizz Mac

Symmetry and Snowflakes

Last weekend my town had a bit of a scare- we thought we were going to get a bit of snow. Those of us in the South run to the store and get a jar of peanut butter, a loaf of bread, and a gallon of milk. Why milk? Who knows. It may have all gotten started back in the early ’60s when we had a powerful ice storm hit and the pine tree limbs broke the power lines. We were without electricity for about two weeks. I was a child but I guess we all lived off peanut butter and bread and the milk stayed cold outside!

For those of you getting hit with the current ice and snow storms here is a product of mine on tpt. There are instructions for cutting out snowflakes and ideas as to what can be created with the snowflakes. For the math teachers there is also a note on symmetry.
