I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

Works for me Wednesday - candles

It's Works for me Wednesday & the topic is our Greatest tips.

Well my top greatest tip would be regarding candles. I love candles! I burn them through out the year, regardless of the season. However I do not like trying to get candles out of glass votive holders etc.. once the candle has burned down to a nub. I was once told (& this works great!!!) That before I put a new candle into a candle holder, if I would spray some cooking Pam into the bottom of glass holder (just a squirt) that when the candle had burned down to a nub the said candle would pop right out. It does!!!
My sanity is saved, and I can switch out the color of my candles based on the season not on the color of the previous candle burned in the candle holder.
