Killing Time

By LifeNo Comments

When I’m not at work it feels like I am killing time. Killing time until I am released, free from house arrest. Normally I’d be keeping myself happily amused with: reading, writing and candle making.

I even relieved some massive jars for the latter activity today:

A medium-sized jar (left) and a MASSIVE jar (right).

But I just can’t seem to motivate myself to be creative. I can’t even motivate myself to entertain myself. I just want to sleep.

Maybe it’s because the weather is good and I usually see people and do things when the weather’s good. I wonder if I’d lack motivation if it were the middle of winter?

Who knows. I’m working all over the long Bank Holiday, so at least boredom won’t set in.

New Glass Jars

By Creativity, LifeNo Comments

I’m often asked by people if they should collect jars for my candle making. Recycling is no bad thing, but I always politely decline their offer of recycled jars.

New Glass Jars

I want my candles to look as professional as possible. In order to do this, each candle needs to look and smell the same. It is difficult to get a collection of 24 of recycled jars that are exactly the same size and shape.

Buying new jars also keeps Glassblowers in business. Glassblowing is an art. One that I really admire; if I had the money an art that I’d love to learn. These are the reasons I buy new jars.

But remember that all the jars I use in my candle making are recyclable. So feel free to re-purpose them or deposit them in a glass recycling bin.
