Happy Page Update #17-28

This week on The Happy Page: I happened upon a carved candle video a few week ago because YouTube’s ‘you might also like this’ suggestions tend to offer me a weird grab-bag of stuff, and I was intrigued because I’d never really thought about how they make those. This isn’t that video, though – I hunted around until I found one that showed more of the technique, and that had better music (better in my opinion, anyway). The one I chose ended up being from the Ural Candle Factory, which doesn’t just sell candles, as it turns out (thank you Instagram!), they also teach candlemaking and help other people to set up their own candle businesses.

I admire carved candles, but I’ve never owned one – I won’t let myself get one, you see, because I know I wouldn’t ever be able to bring myself to light it. 😉

The Happy Page is updated every Sunday with a video that is cute or yummy or funny or inspiring or something.
Content is always relatively cheery, but not guaranteed to be safe for work – slack at your own risk!

    Wow, I haven’t seen one of those in probably 40 years, I didn’t know anyone still made them. There used to be a little shop in Austin that made and sold them. Thanks for the way-back memory!

      Welcome! I’ve only seen the big ones before, watching her turn out a whole slew of identical little ones to be wedding favors was something.

      Are you sure the candlemaker in Austin isn’t still around? I could have sworn one of the videos I didn’t choose was from a shop there.
