Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
Happy start of the week flowers! The theme of light stays with me for a while. The days are getting darker - and little flames have such a nice way to not only light a room, but also warm the heart. Just in time i noticed, in India, people now celebrate the festival of light, called Diwali. This seems such a joyful and happy tradition to me. To read more about it, visit my lovely blogfriend Arti.
On the pictures, you see some candle light holders i created as a DIY for the winter issue of KidsLife, which is almost ready now. They are fun and easy to make - you need:
Semi-transparent paper, red paper
pretty ribbon, golden sequins
Cut the transparent paper and your ribbon to fit around the glass and fix the ends with glue. Cut a little heart fron the red paper and glue it in the middle. And as the cats meow, add a golden sequin to the middle of the heart - it makes love shine! Put a candle-light in and enjoy the lovely glow!
