I love to cook too!

Quoting Schleetle:

I do a lot of yoga, and biking neither of which are creative more so just healthy. Creatively I like to cook, bake, sew, and paint.

Here is the first candle I made and the instructions I used. I bought all of my supplies at Micheal's. If it is something you are going to make a hobby of I recommend a good double boiler just for melting your wax. I use scents and colors now too. Use Crayola crayons for color instead of the color made for candle making.

Good point :) I just feel like I'm so uncreative and every page starts to look the same. My favorite pages are the ones that actually have mementos and souvenir-type stuff on them because they're not just pictures and stickers LOL

It's also much easier to either take the kids with me or tell the hubs he is in charge when I'm going for a run rather than hiding in the guest room trying to work on a scrapbook lol I think I'll be better at it once they're older.

when I first started to scrapbook I started off with Creative Memories and only used their products - they were all I knew about. Many of my pages in my sons baby album consist of a typical Creative Memories page - triangles in corners, a border, an oval or circle and lots of stickers.....lol! I finally discovered a scrapbook store not far from my house and took a few classes. Took me awhile to branch away from my typical Creative Memories pages and punch holes in my pages and use brads etc. lol!
