Take old jewelry and garage sale finds and glue them onto votive holders for glitz.
Embellish glass candleholders with leftover paper. Using shaped paper punches, punch desired patterns in different colors of paper. Use spray adhesive to secure the punched paper to glass candleholders of various sizes and shapes.
Printing on tissue paper makes these candles possible. Tape tissue paper to card stock to run it through the printer. Remove the printed tissue paper from card stock and secure it on a candle with straight pins. Warm the candle with a heat tool until the candle wax permeates the tissue paper. Remove the pins and let cool.
Give a regular pillar candle icy appeal. Place the candle in the center of a dish and wrap a bead strand around it. Knot the strand and use pins to hold it in place. Add more beads as desired.
Stick adhesive scrapbooking letters to small candles. Line up the candles to spell a message.
Copy a sentimental photo onto vellum for a personalized candleholder.
My best friend Heather called me today to say that she is now an Avon representative. Heather is a SAHM with two beautiful children Joey and Em. She has been wanting to contribute financially to her family, but did not want to give up on being a SAHM, teacher's aid, PTA mom, and Brownie troop leader. I have to give her credit for wanting to be involved in her children's lives and also be a bread winner. I want Heather's new venture to be a huge success, so I decided to feature her this week on the Creativity Bug blog.

The Creativity Bugs are avid crafters who got into crafting at a very early age. The love of crafting was inherited from their mom, who loving taught Sue and sister Sandy how to make something special out of next to nothing.
Creativity Bug Sue is a crafty crafter whose first crafting projects include potholders made with string loops, doll furniture made from recycled cereal boxes and plastic containers, and vases made from old bottles covered with masking tape and inks. Not surprising her first Brownie badge earned was for arts & crafts.
Creativity Bug Sandy is a crafter, artist, and seamstress. Art classes in high school broaden her horizons, gave her a flare for color and design, and a desire to turn trash into treasures. No one has a better knack at finding diamonds in the rough at garage sales & thrift stores and turning them into unique gifts than Sandy.
This blog was created to show case some of Sue and Sandy's favorite things; scrapbooking, card making, paper crafting, cooking/baking, sewing, reading, how to's, and creating treasures out of found things.
