Rolled Beeswax Rainbow Birthday Candles

I've had it in my head to make a simple set of birthday candles in rainbow colors for quite a while, and I do believe that I've had them made for nearly that long, but winters are so grey in Indiana that it can seem a long time between those sunny days that I love so much for product photography.

And although these unseasonably mild, warm, sunny days that we've had lately have given me nightmares of a post-apocalyptic global warming collapse in which we're all forced to migrate south on foot, pushing shopping carts full of canned goods in front of us, these entire days that the girls have spent playing with toy ponies and Duplos outside, or kicking a soccer ball around with me at the park, or having the kind of mid-morning playground playdates that we've haven't done since summer sure are making me very, very happy, as is the opportunity to get plenty of product shots done.

And that's why I've done something nearly unheard of this Fabruary: I put a brand-new listing up on etsy!

At least Global Warming is productive!

I have been having similar foreboding thoughts about this gorgeous January/February weather. I keep expecting Mother Nature to turn around and shove 12 feet of snow down my throat. But yours is a way funnier visual.
I love the rainbow candles and I think I might give them a try. I have a box of beeswax sheets that I need to either craft with or giveaway before we move. And seeing as I just made a bunch of your drawstring baggies, I might as well make something to go in them :)
Thanks for all your awesome ideas!

Emma and I made a bunch of candles today. We went with the fairy candles and had a blast.
We blogged about it here if you are interested in checking it out.

Thanks again!
