    Wow, those are so fricking awesome Sarah!!! I love them. I think it sounds like you're good to go on the candle...I mean it's been like 3 days already right?

      Yeah, 3 days of burning about 8 hours a day. It has almost melted through to the design on one side, but the design just kinda crumbled in- no burning. I think I'm going to call it a go...I mean, what are the chances that anyone would burn it up this much anyway, and even if they did, so far so good.

        I bet your labels will curl up if the wall of the candle gets thin enough to let enough heat thru...make sense? Better do a test run....

        This is fun...I'm not doing any projects - just waiting for next Wednesday to come & watching u guys do all the work!! Hehehehe...

            Yes & no...I mean it seems like just yesterday that I still had 6 months to go. I am definitely starting to get that feeling that things are going to happen WAY too fast. I'm really excited & looking forward to just getting there & relaxing.

            I am realizing that I like having a "project" to manage...so after we return the wedding I am moving on to finding a house for us to buy, probably in Austin...so that will be a biggy! Relocating...yikes.

              cuz there is no way we can buy a house in California (well, anywhere that we want to be in Cali). We both make plenty of mony & it's rediculous that we have to rent a house...we really want our own place and to still have some form of lifestyle
