Eco candles - A poll

After a few people asking, I have taken the plunge and bought some soy wax to make some soy candles.

Now before I go any further than this and decide how bigger role they will play, I would like some opinions.

Both have their advantages and disadvantages, But what is more important to you? Price, Look, Being "greener" or dont care as long as it smells good?

Please let me know in the comments below!

Edited to add a link for those of you who have requested "educating"  Feel free to have a read

The only thing that I can see that this article fails to mention is the fact that paraffin wax is a by-product of petroleum so therefore produced anyway and The impact soy farming is having on rainforests as documented here

Its all about ME!

I have just discovered this fantastic blog - Lottie Loves and I have decided to join in the Finishing School workshop over there. Now please bear with me because im NEVER this open and honest about myself. Im not sure how long im going to stick with it. But here goes - deep breath!

Weeks 1 - Attitude
The first task is to think about what makes you happy about yourself.

What do I like about me? What makes me happy? Tough question and it did take alot of thought. With 5 kids its not often I get to just think about myself.

I like my eyes, I love the colour, they are a nice shade of green.

I love the fact that im creative, Give anything a go and make beautiful things. I can take a idea and most of the time turn it into reality. I have the best job in the whole world! I can create in my P.J's With the music turned up, having a little dance and there's no one to tell me to stop!

I love the fact that I have not turned into my parents! That's a story for another day.

I like that I can look fantastic if I make a little effort - O.K. so maybe not when im slobbing in my P.J's But it CAN be done.

I love that I have a happy family and that for the most part I make that happen.  And I love that my family is proud of me!

I think that's enough soul baring for today - I don't want to make you all feel nauseous!

Bee's Bee's and more Bee's

I am absolutely petrified of Bee's! Ever since I sat on one.
But they have decided to move in anyway - They have made their home in the wall outside my front door. So I can either get used to them or knock the house down so it seems! So in light of this I have decided to dedicate this weeks Folksy Friday too the Bee's
