DIY: Customized Candles - How to make Molds using Sand


Did you know that you can actually use sand to make customized moulds for candles using just sand? These candles are really fun and easy to make and you need just a few things to make them in any shape you want!



 






This might not be the best way to make candles, but it is so much fun! Be sure to not add too much crayons, if you want to colour your candles as they might have difficulties to burn properly. These candles are more for decoration purposes as most of the shapes I made, wouldn't burn till the end!



I hope you enjoy this idea and find it helpful! 



Have a wonderful day everyone!

Mother's Day Gift | Thinking out Loud

Every year I think about what gift video I can make for mother’s day. And every year I face the same exact problem, that I have no idea. 



And it’s not because I'm a bad person that doesn't gift anything to her mum on mother’s day. I used to create gifts when I was a kid since we were kinda expected that in school but it still felt somehow weird to us (mum and me). 

And since I moved out of my parents home we started this tradition that I visit them every Sunday. And since then I felt like we were spending real quality time together. I realised that it also helped us to develop a friendship that I now consider us friends as well. 

Usually when you live with your parents, you easily take the time for granted that you neglect things like that and I think that spending time consciously with your mum or just with your parents in general is far more rewarding than any gift you can make. You can do things you both like and eat food that brings back memories from your childhood or you can go visit places or go to a theatre. 

I think that experiencing things and being able to create memories together is a gift itself.

I hope you like this video! :)


Have a wonderful day everyone!

The Cat Toy Story - DIY - How to make a cat happy

Hey everyone!
Gabriela asked me on my Facebook page if I could do a video based on pet DIYs. I thought it would be a fun idea to create this video about a cat-proven DIY toy! 


I hope you enjoy it! 
This video is a bit different compared to my normal videos, but I hope you still enjoy it!

Also, if you want to try out this DIY with your cat, be sure to be careful with your cat. You know your cat better and how it reacts to little things. If your cat tend to eat everything and has to always be under control so it doesn't choke anything, you might be really careful with that! We've been using this toy for years and the cats loved it. They never tried to eat it or anything, they just wanted you to move it around so they can catch it!


Have a wonderful day everyone!
