Wish me luck

The next two days are going to be pure torture at work. I'll be way busier than I care to be and I know that people are seriously going to get on my nerves. Although I have posts scheduled for the today tomorrow and Christmas day I can't guarantee that I'll be leaving any comments. I'm afraid of what I might say if I do.

Today I leave you with my latest projects. I saw a tutorial somewhere for candle cozy's so I whipped up some of my own. I adjusted the measurements a bit since I was making them for the small candles as well.


These are pretty quick to put together and I plan on making quite a few of these to go to the craft show with me next year. 

Seeing as how I did all of these do you know what this means? 

I just may have over come my fear of cutting fabric.

Hi Ann, it is good to see that you are using your fabric and have overcome your fear of cutting it:)
Your candle cozy's are adorable.
I'll be thinking of you the next few days and hoping that you get through them, stress free. Merry Christmas.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

Hi Ann,
Hang in there, Christmas is within grasp and you'll have some days to chill with the family. I work today and tomorrow, but should be fairly easy days as none of our users are working out in the countries. Wish I didn't have to go out though, as I can hear it's raining. Those things are lovely, and what a smart and simple thing. They are very decorative.

Hugs,
Eva

They are brilliant, you could use any old jam jar and make them look something, they should go like hot cakes at a fair.
I know what you mean about work, I have worked in some various places over Christmas, its trying to say the least but it was the loop of Christmas music that just about did me in.

I have no idea why a candle would need a cozy but those are very well done - and I seemed to have become fixated on the corners...yeah, working with the 'public' over the next few days - not a happy time!

I hate being so busy it makes me grumpy. Sorry life is that way for you. Merry Christmas.

Sandra said...

so sorry you have two days of stressville before Christmas day... hope you get to Chill all day Christmas and have the day after off... cute cozies and they could be put on jars for decorative purposes to.

I hope it is not TOO bad for you at work! I HAVE one of these, my niece makes them! But she says it is to put over your take out coffee cup so your hands don't get burned drinking it! So we keep it in the glove compartment. So these may sell even better at the craft show with a double use. People who don't use candles would even buy them. My favorite is the pretty ne with the green leaves. Hope you have a GREAT Christmas!

Just remember that it will be over in a blink. Good luck!

Cute - I think you should light one of those candles and pour yourself a big glass of wine and de-stress!

Have a nice Xmas - Katie

Gorgeous cozies, Ann.
Merry Christmas to you and yours xx

Sandee said...

I would think that the public would be far nicer this time of year? Then back to normal after Christmas. I hope you have two good days and not the other way around.

I love your cozies. They are cute as heck.

Have a fabulous day. My best to the little man Duke. ♥♥♥

Hope work is better than you're expecting! Your cozies are very cute!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

You have a fear of cutting fabric? I have fear of 'cutting the cheese'.

Hope that made your day a bit less stressful. It was intended!!

....oops....sniff...
pardon me!!

Christine said...

Oh well done Ann! They look amazing!
So proud of you!
Happy Christmas!

Marg said...

Those candles are terrific. We like those a lot. Good work. Our best to that Duke dog. Take care.

Reeni Pisano said...

Those are adorable Ann! Hope your days pass quickly! Merry Christmas! Give Duke xmas hugs from Moon.

I hope your time of torture is over by now. If not, please check to see if the 3 dozen old-fashioned sour cream cake donuts you promised me are well on their way to my tummy.

Dee said...

I love these.....

Sheryl Hastings said...

I really do love these! This is a great idea. I buy the pet eliminator candles at the clinic and even though they are the best as far as scent, they aren't very pretty. I'm going to make me a few of these.
