in which we learn how to make candles at Brooklyn Creative Studio

After two months of staying at home, I decided that my main problem right now is that I need a hobby. At the very least, I need to go out and do things that don’t revolve around brand events or even dating (still working on that one, sigh).


This is me, actually leaving the house for once. I missed the bus walking up the block. THEN I didn’t take the directions seriously and then realized that my bus stop was the next one two blocks over. THEN I finally caught the bus. You know what? I could have caught any of the buses that run on that street. Also? Google maps told me to get off at the wrong stop. I was half an hour late.

On the bright side, there’s an IHOP on the same street as the craft studio. Yay!


I finally made it to Brooklyn Creative Studio and my teacher Yesenia set me right up. We were going to be making scented candles in jars and tealight size. Luckily I went to art school, so it wasn’t hard to get the gist of what was happening. I also lucked out and had Kerry of Love, Liesel as a classmate.


In no time I was melting wax, which was fun. I used to melt crayons on my Barbie dolls when I was little? Same thing.


I really enjoyed setting up the candles and pouring wax. I love knowing how candles are made. Mystery of how the wick stays put? Solved. How are scented candles made? I know all. How to make a candle a different color? I got it.


The payoff..
