…and then there was the time when Dawne was about thirteen years old and she decided to experiment with candle-making. Since I have no recollection of this craft either (see yesterday’s blog about the first Christmas “surprise”) I am assuming that Dawne waited for another opportunity to create when I wasn’t home. She gathered up every crayon in the house, unwrapped each one, threw them into a pot and placed them on the stove element. When the crayons melted into a bruise-colored mass and the pot was completely ruined, Dawne proceeded to pour the hot wax into my new Christmas cookie cutters and last, but certainly not least, she placed a wick in the candle.
It looks pretty good, doesn’t it? However, looking at the Christmas man from a different perspective, there’s a bit of a problem.
What’s the life lesson learned from this simple craft? PLAN AHEAD! 🙂
