Hello Sweet Friends
I didn’t mean to mislead anyone about the fires in our area. Thank you all for your concern but we are quite safe. We live in the Yakima Valley on the eastern foothills of The Cascade Mountain range. The fires are in the higher elevations but the smoke fills the valley. Although a breeze would help us, it is a blessing for the firefighters and home owners in harms way that our notorious winds are not fanning the flames. Sadly there is no relief in sight as there isn’t a hint of precipitation in our long range forecast.
I hadn’t planned to share these with you all until I had them all completed but it is taking far longer then I expected. They are so stinking cute, I can’t wait.
Okay I haven't really been baking. I can not take credit for the idea or give credit to the original designer as I’ve been seeing these decorated battery operated tea light candles on the web for years. There is a wonderful tutorial here.
Are these photos a bit blurred or is it just me? Maybe I need to recharge my batteries.
I’ve used snippets of paper, a variety of punches and dug into my stash of tiny flowers, beads and more to decorate each cake differently. Each sits on it’s own 'cake plate' which has a hole punched into it so the switch is accessible.
Each box has an acetate window cut with SB Circles and framed with SB Lacy Circles, a matching belly band with a MS Daisy border punch for a lacy look and a matching 3 x 3 blank note card.
Do you think these will sell at the Craft Fairs?
ETA: I meant to share with the snippetters in the playground. Head Mistress Di has reminded me I hadn't don't so. Sorry Di.
I've got boxes, cards and envelops to make so I'd better hop to it. Hope you all have a fabulous week.
