I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.

  1. Your how-to has inspired me to make rolled beeswax candles for my wedding !! (14 months away, so here goes). But I wanted to mention that Knorr Beeswax lists 20 sheets for $50, but candlewic.com lists them much cheaper (referenced on martha stewart’s how-to candle thingy) 10 sheets for $16.50, or 50 sheets for $68.50…. Although, I haven’t been able to compare shipping or quality – only quantity.
