Latest Crafts!

Hi everyone! I have been really busy getting ready for Christmas: -17 days! So I thought I’d share with you what I’ve been up to (see what I did there?)…

First: Christmas decorations!

I got a fake tree and a wreath, decorated them with a bunch of cute little decorations, got and wrapped present, and put together a few decorations (hot glue FTW). I really wanted to do more, but I’m a bit on a budget, so I had to restrain myself!

Second: Baby blankets!

Two friends recently had babies, so I tried to crochet two baby blankies. It has been a bit of a struggle because my crochet and sewing skills are not the best, but I did my best and they came out cute (kind of asymmetrical, count your stitches, guys, but still cute). They kind of look the same from the pictures, but the first one is regular yarn, while the second one is fuzzy yarn (which, btw, is a huge pain to crochet).

Third: Candle making!

I got REALLY into candle making! I’ve been trying to come up with all natural candles, without any synthetic fragrances. I’m using soy wax, essential oils, and wooden wicks. I’m still experimenting to get a stronger scent, but I’m really enjoying myself. If I nail a recipe, I think I’ll start selling them!

So, yup, this is all for now! I have a few fun DIYs and post ideas for the future, so stay tuned! And remember that I usually also post one video a week on my YouTube channel:
