Scratch and sniff screen?

for some reason, I don't think I've been busy enough. I still have a ton of things to finish. I made the bubba this cloche hat. I was thinking of making a bunch of them for her school's festival to sell. But I'm not sure. the jury's is still out on that. I made it out of caron simply soft brights yarn so it's totally washable and kiddo friendly! And super duper soft. So here's one more pix. What do you think? I think I may do some different types of flowers and of course different color combos. I may be able to whip up a few of these for the school's festival...
that's not the only thing I've been up to. Besides rearranging the living room and organizing my desk, having the inlaws over for dinner and straightening my knitting and crochet books I've also been making the house smell beautiful. I've been making these for the school's festival. Yup those there are candles. I forgot how much fun it is to make them. This was the first batch I made on Friday. I also melted down a big candle I'd gotten at wally world, that must not have been wicked straight b/c it melted over the side... ARUGH. I made that into a star candle.. look Kelly it works wonderfully! I love it! Yesterday I made more candles. Different colors and scents of course. If you look at the pix the bright pink post its are my notes as to what is what. I also made some melts for people to purchase from the left over wax. I may not give those to the school but sell those on etsy. not sure yet. I figure what/if the school doesn't want the candles I'll sell these at my store. I wish you could smell them they're so yummy! I have labeled all of them and put my website of my store, so if anyone would like to buy more they know where to get them at. I am hoping to get some people interested in buying things I've made, so eventually I don't have to work away from home.
on a totally different note Happy Mother's day to all you mom's out there. I hope you're having a wonderful day. I got the best present from the girls and my DH, a gift certificate to a spa/massage place I'm so excited I've always wanted to go to one! Now I can! Whoo HOO

LOVE the hat! I'll bet that they will be very popular. And seeing your candles made me realize it's been a long time since I've made any myself. I love doing it since it makes the house smell so good. :)

And I loved your "Starget" term on my blog - made me laugh!!!!

That cloche hat is too cute! I happen to like Simply SOft for lots of things because it really is that soft and so washer friendly!

You've made me want to break out my soy candle making stuff that I haven't touched since I picked up the needles almost 18 months ago =) Love what you did with yours, they look great!
