candle for Meg...

I made this for Meg for Christmas. We sisters make eachother gifts for Christmas. Most every year we get angry and resentful and want to stop the tradition, but we most of the time pull through. This was one of the gifts I made for Meg. (don't be impressed, there were only two, and the other was one of the cute headbands) I got the idea from Martha Stewart magazine waiting room in the hospital in December. I had to get my septum undeviated. (I know that is what celebrities say when they get a nose job,) but not true here. I just thought it would be pretty awesome to breathe out of my nose. I think I would have survived for about 2 minutes breathing out of my nose alone before the surgery. Anyhow, I would rather deliver another baby than go through that again...okay on to the candle... all it is is a candle, mod podge, and epsom salt. You all probably don't need more detail than that right?
Then I found a super cute sparkle "J" ornament, because Meg is super cute and sparkly, and maybe because her last name starts with a "J". And just tied it on. She is loving on blues and orange right now, so I thought it would go.
Martha's turned out WAY better, but I assume Martha doesn't have 5 young children that she stays home with, or makes her own meals, or actually makes her own crafts for her magazine, or cleans her own toilets, or makes her sisters gifts, or had a deviated septum surgery, or had to pump for 3 days for her infant while she was on pain killers, which lead to some serious nursing issues, or cleans her own house, or had about 1 billion productions of her children to go to in all of December.

Bitter? obviously...

Oh my word-you poor thing. I think I would have called my sister and offered to make my own gift, with all you had going on.
