Summer Kick-off Giveaway...


(pause music playing at bottom of blog...)

Today was the last day of school around here and you can literally feel the excitement in the air for all the students and teachers. I've been on both sides of the fence--a student in my younger years and an elementary teacher, and let me tell ya, whichever one you may be, it feels pretty awesome knowing you have a few months off....away from the stress of school.

*************************************************

I thought what better time to do a little giveaway to kick-off the summer months!

Here is what one lucky reader will win in this giveaway...

IMG_5682

Your own personal copy of Mathew Mead's, SUMMER book-azine!!! You can't even find this in the stores my friends. You have to order directly from Matthew. When I placed my order, I bought 2 copies with YOU in mind... of course I had to order one for myself and then one for YOU. Matthew has beautiful and stylish decorating ideas. You can learn more about his SUMMER magazine here:


And then.... the second part to the giveaway, you will receive this lovely Scentsy basket that was put together by my good friend and Scentsy consultant, Danielle. The hubby actually won this at a silent charity auction we had at church--he and another husband were in a bidding war to win Danielle's Scentsy basket for their wives...ha..ha--it was pretty funny watching them keep going back to the bidding table to up their bids! All in good fun...

I thought it was cute-- after he found he had won, he suggested to me (and probably already knew what I was thinking) "Why don't you use this as a giveaway on your blog?" Score!! He knows me all too well. :-)

So courtesy of my dear hubby, here is what you'll find in your Scentsy basket:

Mid-size warmer
Amber Road Scentsy fragrance bar
Sun-kissed Citrus fragrance bar
Cranberry Muffin room spray
Wishing Well fragrance circle (to hang in your car or a closet)
Scentsy spatula (purple)

  7. We are planning a "back to basics" Summer - It will be my granddaughter Maggie's last free summer before starting the school routine ( she will be in Kindergarten). We are focusing on enjoying this time with her little brother, Isaac, by having picnics by the river, Bible School, swimming, crafts, reading, and hopefully a Summer full of giggles! Would love to win your wonderful giveaway. I am a Fan of Cupcakes and Puddles, a follower and have shared on FB.
