Mother’s Day Memory Candle
TUESDAY, APRIL 17, 2012 | Comments: 28
Mother’s Day has become a bit of a strange day for me since my mom passed away 4 years ago. While I am happy and grateful to be on the receiving end of this holiday, I can’t stop feeling the need to be on the giving end too. I still have appreciation and love for my mom even though she is no longer here. If you can relate to my situation, this project is for you. I hope it helps you along as it did for me…
I used a Sharpie paint pen and wrote out my feelings on a glass cylinder vase, filled the base with sand and dropped a pillar candle inside. I just went with every happy memory that popped into my head at the moment – no need to be perfect, just sincere.
Grab some Sharpie paint pens (available at Michaels) and a glass vessel and let out your feelings. You could also write out your mom's favorite poem or quote.
I placed the vase in my lap and worked around the entire vase going from top to bottom.
Sometimes it helps to let it out in a small way.
