Scentsy Giveaway!

Hello, hello all! Usually I have a drawing for those who attend any given craft night...well, now is your chance to enter even if you don't attend!

Megan (who is a Scentsy Independent Consultant) has contacted me and was kind enough to offer this generous prize for the drawing/giveaway. The prize is a Full Size Scentsy system - which is 1 full sized Scentsy warmer of your choice plus 3 Scentsy bars in your choice of scents. How great is that!!

For those of you who don't know about Scentsy (you are totally missing out) here's a little bit about them. Scentsy is a company that focused on aromatic candles, but it's not just any ordinary "candle". This "candle" is a decorative warmer(s) with wax melted by the heat of a light bulb instead of a traditional wick and flame.

Who hates to light their candles only because of the dreaded smell after you blow them out?-- I do!! When I received a Scentsy system as a Christmas gift, I literally tossed all my candles out. It is a spectacular system! I love how easy it is to change the scents with my daily moods. I honestly use mine everyday.

Okay so now you are thinking, "I'm sensitive to smells" well, there's hope for you! There are many, many, many different scents to choose from. Some of them strong and some of them mild. You can burn them for as long or as little as you like. I have heard of several people that are sensitive to smells, but they have found success in finding their favorite, enjoyable scents.

BTW- the warmer to the left is currently my favorite!!! And the Home Sweet Home scent is burning as we speak....as I type!

Okay, okay, enough about the fabulous free gift, lets hear about how to enter!

Here's what you need to do: Comment below telling me which warmer is your favorite - check out the options {HERE - http://www.meganbourne.scentsy.ca/ }. You must do this in order for additional entries to count.

#1. Watering can door hang $22

This is a great Spring/Summer decoration to hang on your door or even out on your patio/deck. It is done with coordinating paper, paint, glitter, wire, ribbon, and buttons. If you would prefer a different color scheme please bring supplies. The color scheme seen in the above pictures will be provided.

# 3. Keepsake box $12 Only 5 available
This tin box was hand decorated using coordinating paper, ribbon, flowers, and embellishments. The idea for this box came to me during Spring, when I was thinking of planting my flowers and garden items. I realized I needed something to hold all those packages of seeds that I have falling out of the cabinet! This is a great, strong box with a snap closure lid to keep those little seeds where they belong...besides in the dirt!

#4. Flower clips/headbands
$1 per clip $1 per headband

These brightly colored 4.5" flowers are secured to a ribbon covered Alligator clip that can be used directly in the hair, fastened to a headband (as seen), or on a hat. Easy for youngsters to use! (Great for Adults too) Please specify the color when you RSVP.

Where are you?

Hello all my faithful followers! I'm sure by now you have decided that I have fallen off the face of the blogging world....which pretty much is true. I decided I should let you know what is going on.

With the recent events, I have lost what little motivation I once had. I have a few things that I am working on currently, and hope to have them done soon. I mentioned to a few, that the next craft night would be in March, but my home is under construction so I do not have access to all my crafty supplies and my mind is elsewhere. The March craft night has been put on hold. I sincerely appologize and will keep you posted.

Thank you for your understanding.
