FROM MAKING CANDLES TO WRITING
Updated: Oct 6, 2019
Candles were my passion for years. A friend taught me how to make beautiful candles one night when our husbands were both serving in Vietnam. It was a wonderful but messy hobby. When Steve came home, he joined me in making them to sell to acquaintances and giving them as gifts to family and friends. Life caused us to turn our undivided attention to our children and putting us both through college. When we lived in Guthrie, Oklahoma, USA, we opened a shop and factory called Victorian Lights. Guthrie is known for its Victorian architecture and is on the National Historical Register. We made unusual and well-scented candles to sell wholesale and retail. We even gave tours in our factory to tourists. It was an enjoyable period in our lives.
