When i decided to take on candle making a few years ago, I thought it couldn't be easier. Melt the wax, pour into molds with a wick, and let it dry. "How hard can it be?"- famous last words!!

I read a blog post this morning about a fellow homesteader having what I will call a "less than romantic" day. I think all of us homesteaders begin with a vision of how life is going to be.
