Bad Hair Day Pencils

I’ve been making these little Bad Hair Day Pencils for years.  They are easy enough for children to make, make cute additions to Valentine’s Day parties or an Easter Basket, and can keep the little ones busy for a long time.  They’ll also bring a smile to your face in your home office.

When I showed this to my 22 year old son, I asked him if he remembers them.  He smiled & said, “Yes, I still have one”.   Needless to say, that made my day!

Beaded Candles -Tutorial

Well, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, so I guess we won’t be seeing Spring until sometime around St. Paddy’s Day.  🙁   To brighten things up, I thought I’d add more color around our home.  I’m decorating candles again.  I’ve decorated candles before, but these are a little different.  And since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, red is a natural.  These Beaded Candles are easy to make and can be done using any color that you want.

Here’s how I made them.
