coincidentally I had this other website open while reading this thread..there is a 'recipe' for making candles in a crockpot, using left over wax http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008/11/how-to-make-candles-in-crockpot.html

clever stuff!

Oooh, awesome link, edelC!  Cheesy  Now I need to hunt up those 'ends' ... I hope I didn't throw them away.  (I should know better!)

Oh my goodness you guys! Guess what finally arrived in the mail(!)

Puzzler has wonderfully, generously agreed to be a swap angel for me and she totally spoiled me rotten!



The goodies included some beautiful red cloth napkins which are already on the table to be used,
some cloth pads with little cloth baggies to keep them in,
an amazing little bath puff knit from yarn that is sooo lovely, soft and squooshy!,
cheery yellow fruit/veggie bags of various sizes,
a grocery shopping list so I know what to get at the shops (and not spend extras on anything I don't need),
and a beautiful angel ornament,
and some lovely yarn I'm sure will go to good use!

And I LOVED the Cheerio cereal box it was all packed in! (So did my postie! He told me they were flat out trying to catch up delivering things due to the recent flooding here (thus the delay in it arriving) so seeing the box really put a smile on his face as well. Smiley

Thank you so very much puzzler for your generosity, I truly love everything!

I am glad everything reached its' destinations safely. : )

On my side, i have to say that i used the cheerio box for two reasons- One, it was the perfect size for what i was sending and Two, I was trying to be frugal! : )
