Winters Glow Candle

I am participating in a wonderful blog called A Year of Color. It's fantastic!!
There is a different color theme each month. Each week focuses on a different idea (decor, crafts, etc.). They even have fantastic guest artists teaching tutorials.
So, I vowed to myself when I signed up that I would try to make as many of the craft tutorials as possible. I am always beating myself up because I want to make so many things and then I just let them slip away. But not anymore!!
This was the very first tutorial. The Winters Glow Candle and this months colors are blue and white. I made this candle as a tribute to all of the wonderful artist who's blogs I read that are freezing their bums off right now. I think that my candle captures the beauty of the snow (all sparkles and white and blue) and when lit the warmth of the hearth.
Now, I'm only one project behind. Ha! Ha!
Try to enjoy whatever weather you have. For those of you freezing, try and stay warm.
