candley things

February always seems to be our most difficult month, it rains too much, it's too muddy, grey and generally icky but we're sick of being inside. It really should be getting lighter by now! So J suggested that perhaps that's why candlemass or imbolc occurs when it does, just when you're getting sick of winter there's a light festival. So he and A rediscovered a very old candlemaking kit with no instructions and went for it...
throw some wax and dye in a can and melt it...
put it in a yoghurt pot tie the wick to a paintbrush, let it set...
hey presto... candles
and a candley game for candlemass, pixies hiding behind trees from the light of the candle. All in all a very light filled 2nd of February.
