Fast Friday Project #1


My goal for every Friday this holiday season is to have a project for your viewing pleasure.  A project that you can make in an about hour, requires few materials and could go to almost anyone.  I am not requiring a lot of myself now am I?  Now toss in a new baby, two trips, a blog hop where I am one of 60 Designers and some of them participating are really big names.  So, no I am not feeling any pressure what so ever.   I wish someone would invent a font called sarcasm and it could only be used when you were truly being sarcastic in print.  Now back to the photo above.  The darling little candle wrap.  It makes a great hostess gift, party favor or a gift for just about any on and it can go with almost any decor.
