Spring Giveaway (P.S. Raymonde)

A Spring Giveaway to Celebrate!

You may remember, Jennifer *The Cotton Wife*, Frannie and myself were planning on doing a spring giveaway that would also benefit a young man named Nathan.

There is an old saying, “Life is what happens, while we are busy making plans.” Life has been happening, especially for Jennifer! Jennifer had the first showing of her photography and because she is a gifted artist, her photography business has exploded! (In a good way!) However, because she is so busy, she has decided to help Nathan by donating a portion of her sales.

If you would like to view Jennifer’s work, please do! Remember, if you make a purchase, you will also be helping Nathan. Personally, I have my eye on a couple of prints!

In the meantime, I have been working on gathering and pouring the spring fragrances for Prairie Song Candles. (No, Prairie Song Candles does not have a website. That would necessitate me having to work even harder!;-)

All that to say ~ We are having a CANDLE Giveaway! The winner will receive a generous selection of spring scents to enjoy! I say generous, I plan to completely fill one of those postal boxes that has a set mailing price. I am not sure exactly what the count will be, but I promise I will pack the box as full as possible.

In addition, in a few days, I am going to post a candle tutorial if anyone is interested. I will post step by step directions and I will be happy to answer any questions you might have. Why? Because I love making candles and I want to share that love with you. In the beginning, when I started Prairie Song Candles, I made some huge mistakes. Looking back now, I can laugh; however, mistakes cost money and by sharing what I’ve learned hopefully I will save someone else from stumbling! I will warn you, while pouring candles can be very rewarding, it is also very addictive!

NOW, what kind of HOOPS do you have to jump through to enter to win this CANDLE giveaway?

*First you have to comment, because like everyone, I love comments! Each comment (over the next two weeks) counts as an entry.

*Each day, I will post a simple question, that can be answered with one word. They’ll be simple like, what’s your favorite color? When you comment, also leave an answer to the question of the day!

*Pray for Nathan and other children who are suffering from cancer.

Gift box to be mailed on May 1st!
