This pandemic has allowed us all some time to deeply reflect on our purpose and find joy in the things around us. I absolutely love candles and wanted to give candle making a try so I purchased a kit on Amazon last September. It literally sat on my desk for almost 2 months before deciding to use it. My first candle was an epic fail and that did NOT stop me from buying 10 pounds of wax and more supplies and keep pushing. I conquered my fear and researched candle making for at least 3 months to master the science behind it. I made over 30 candles during the Christmas season and gave them away and received so much positive feedback which inspired me to write a grant so that I can purchase items for the Middle and Community School.
A week later after submitting a grant proposal, I received the best news and secured a Walmart Foundation grant which allowed me to purchase a few kits and supplies for our Middle and Community school. I was able to pilot my very first candle making class in January as a Faculty Team Building event. The teachers and staff LOVED it and this was all the inspiration I needed to step out of my comfort zone. I decided to create a STEM lesson and partner with the Science department and teach other students as well (see video here). Coincidentally, I made pants for someone who I went to College with and she came to pick it up and saw my set up to make candles. She asked if I would do a VIRTUAL session for 45 ladies to celebrate their Delta Anniversary! I was hesitant at first but decided to push through my fears. The week long of packing and shipping gave me all the inspiration I needed to START MY VERY OWN Virtual and in-person Candle making classes.
