Soy Candlemaking Again!

What wonderful colors and scents.
The talented chics of the Arty Tea Party, once again, stepped out to the Big Red Barn to learn Lynn's process for making Soy Candles.  Rosebud Sandy had everyone cracking up with every little thing that comes out of her mouth. Laughter is good for the soul.  It was a great turn out, as everyone chose their own colors to go with their chosen scents.  In the foreground you will see Cranberry color to go with cranberry scent, the caramel colors are mine and 1 for Nina that are Cedarwood Vanilla scented, with a touch of Fig scent mixed in.  They smell amazing.  Thanks to Lynn for opening up just for us!

Fun group of Talented Chics...(yes, I'm behind the camera)
Miss Kitty showing off her dolls
Kitty Mitchell, one very talented chic, for sure was pleased to share her dolls with the group.  You can see some of Kitty's work, Santos Doll on page 75 of Art Doll Quarterly Aug/Sept. issue, and her very cool Captain Hook in the current November issue of Art Doll Quarterly.  WAY TO GO, KITTY!
  Meet Jan, our newest member with her newly acquired doll from Kitty, that she named, Willow.

And after all is said and done, we must take deep breaths and remember what truly is important in our lives.  The Universe is allowing Mother Nature to display all of her Autumn Glory.  Get out there and enjoy what is left of it before the dreaded "s" word comes with the cold winter winds.
