Now,this post is a Great idea.:o)Blessins',Lib
I enjoyed looking over these posts you provided today. I feel like I know you even better. Back in the early 80's I had a friend at our little Baptist Church and she was raising 3 teens alone. She lived much like the Menonites and had been raised in a Brethren Church. She and I got on quite well despite others thinking she and her family were "weird". I for one didn't think that was very Christian of them and enjoyed our friendship immensely.I've never made candles though I enjoy their warming glow in my home. I burn the scented jar variety mostly.I've never made soap but I'm sure it has to be better than what you can buy at a store!I have been aquainted with frugal living. Our life financally has had it's ups and downs.I've never made a loaf of bread in my life. I tried to make a pizza dough one time and ripped a hole in it and have never tried anything with yeast since...lol! Now, cornbread...I can make some great cornbread!
Oh now that is a great idea!
Hi Patty, I too make beeswax candles, but I use a tin mold, I've never tried dipping, but I do own back to basics so maybe I will give it a try sometime. I also make lye soap, my favourite is tea tree and peppermint, together.blessings,

Wonderful!Patti or anyone who has done this.. Made bread in the crockpot/slow cooker? Hugs from TNDenise
haven't made bread in a slow cooker, just love having the oven going in winter to warm up that end of the house! I seem to like the shape of conventional loaves but I know folks do a lot of baking in crock pots with good success.
