Homemade and Handmade is Good for the SOUL

I think that you will find that working with wax is very similiar to handling clay.

Way back when I took a few Pottery classes in High School and College and thoroughly enjoyed the process.
Those fun times in pottery class spurred me on in taking my girls and grandgirls to pottery painting classes as well.
I just tend to believe that as adults when we tap into our creativity we ignite a renewed passion for life.
When we tap into those resources we tend to view life through a keener and happier lens.
