Why not...

I have never had too many hobbies. Mostly because I never had that much time to dedicate to something besides work, family or friends. Now that is different, and I have found something I enjoy doing-- making candles!

Both kids go to "school" three days/week. This time is my golden time- I can get everything done without having to drag them along on boring errands. However, there is definite down time. I use the time to run errands, workout and recently I have started looking into volunteer opportunities at local schools, but have not solidified exactly what I want to do. In the meantime, I am filling my "down time" with candle making. I mentioned before that I love candles, and now I found out that I love making them. 

Every Sunday (to avoid football) I make a few candles. Candles have started adding up, so I decided to open an Etsy store and sell them... now, I don't expect to be on Shark Tank anytime soon, but it is a fun feeling seeing some possibility, and I feel productive with my new found time. I also have them up on my blog to buy as well-- Im such an entrepreneur :) Hope you enjoy checking them out, my friends and family can be pretty sure what they will be getting for holiday gifts this year...

PS. Let me know if you need a candle making lesson :)
