Okay, Melissa and I are hosting a giveaway in honor of our resolve to support the entrepreneurs among us. We've talked about it for a couple of weeks now, and, we decided that if I made something to give away whoever got it (and all of their friends) would immediately boycott these blogs, and Melissa is busy crafting for TWO upcoming craft fairs and can't really spare a minute. I'll tell ya, we were stumped.

Then, along came Brandyanne's Candles & Prims! Brandyanne's candles are well-known for their fabulous fragrance and they are made of clean-burning soy, to boot! Brandyanne agreed to partner with Thistledew and Clay Hill and make a 12 oz candle and three Prairie Prim Melters for our giveaway!

So, the winner could potentially try FOUR different scents for free! How cool is that? And, with Christmas coming up, the candle would make a great gift!

So, here's how to enter: visit Brandyanne's store. On the left-hand side you'll see a column labeled, "Products." Scroll down and see "Scents for Clay Hill Farm" and click there. Then come back here or to Thistledew Farm and post a comment between now and 7 p.m. Eastern time on Nov 1st telling us what scents you want if (WHEN!!) you win - it's that easy. Note: it has to be one of our special Clay Hill scents for the purposes of the contest. Any entries that contain incorrect scent names will be disqualified, and we'll draw again.

Additionally, if you'll mention the giveaway on your blog, we'll give you an extra entry. Link to all three websites (Thistledew, Brandyanne's and Clay Hill) and we'll give you a total of five entries.

We'll select the winner Nov 1st with a random drawing, courtesy of the Princess (who will NOT peek because she has a very strong sense of fair play at the moment!) and Brandyanne will make your custom candle and melters and ship them right to you. And, if this contest goes well, we'll follow it up with another, because I'm having as much fun right now as a kid at Christmas!

We'd love it if the winner would report back to all of us on the scents and which is her favorite, but that's optional - not a requirement! So, get on over to Brandyanne's and check out those scents!

I would vote for Balsam and Spice - but I can't it's "my" giveaway - but I am sure going to order one. I can imagine it smelling up my office and me singing Christmas carols at the top of my lungs - until they come and drag me away!

Though there are a ton I would love to try. Am putting together an order right now.

Lisa said...

Ok, here's my comment with candle names in it for my choices and then I'm off to add a link to my blog. BTW, on the Brandyanne site, she should really put a comma between the scent names because it's hard to tell what the full name is. :-) Anyway... I'd love to have Harvest and Grandma's Cinnamon Roll thanks for the great give away. Guess I should go make some candles today myself.

Stacey said...

Ohhh how nice . . I'd love Grandma's Cinnamon Rolls. :)
