Are you creative? What are you creative with? I like making candles and soaps for myself and people. I like to make my stuff look very nice. Try this if you have never done this its very pretty to me. You need one canning jar and a lace little top for the lid part, you need a set of small lights like the Christmas lights in a small box. And a small bag of potpourri. Put some Potpourri in the jar them stuff a little bit of the lights in there then keep repeating it till its filled. Then put the lace on top as the lid and a piece of ribbon around it. Then plug it in. It is very pretty.

That sounds very cute. I am always looking for little things to make for my fellow workers at work. I usually into crocheting and knitting and different things like that. So If there is other things that you would like to share please send them on.

making candles and soaps isn't very hard. If you want to make candles make sure you get lead free wicks. you need to find a cheap place that sells wax by the pounds. I buy 10 and 20 pounds pf wax at a time. And find a good place that sells the scents you like for scenting your candles. I use a small double boiler for melting my wax down. after wax is melted then add your scent to it. You will have to get your candle molds so when your done melting the wax you pour it into the mold but make sure your wick is in the center. wrap your wick at the top around a small spoon or something to keep it in the center and that the wick doesn't fall in the wax when cooling. Hope this helps.

I am creative with pictures. I have taken beautiful pictures then edited them with an editing software of course. Then I put them in a scrapbook which helps me be really creative. I love creating pages that fit my friends and family.

Over the years I have dabbled in many crafts but since I have had my computer I put them all aside but one thing I still like to do is make butterflies, I bought a couple of butterly rubber stamps , once stamped on to fine cardboard I cut them out in a paper tole way with about 3 or 4 per butterfly, I them layer them onto each other as you do for paper tole then I put a fine coat of glue over the top and sprinkle very fine glitter over it....when I give a present I nearly always have a butterfly on the parcel.
