This Must Be What Heaven Smells Like!


I have been walking on clouds lately with much much good fortune. My friend Dana Eskes of Moon Maiden Soaps & Sundries emailed me at the end of last week to say my name had been plucked from so many trying to win her fabulous Blog Giveaway. I have known for a very long time that this girl has Skills Extreme when you put her in front of a sewing machine but lo and behold - turn her loose with wax and oils and she becomes a lean, mean incredibly scented machine. So you can imagine how delighted I was to hear that I got to choose my flavor of candle, 2 soaps, a lip balm and body butter! Wow, trouble was, I could not pick one thing to rule out, so I ended up placing an order in addition to the gifts she was bestowing on me. You see, I have a neice that I'm quite fond of and she has very similar tastes to mine, so I knew she would be digging herself some Moon Maiden goodes too! And this way, I thought I could smell both candles and decide what I'm keeping and what I'm giving to Cheyenne. There is just one problem... I love it all!

Dana - thank you so very very much! You have such a generous and giving spirit and I wish you great great success with the new business. To anyone reading this, I urge you to go check out her Etsy store ... and believe me when I promise - you will NOT be sorry!!! I know for a fact I will be hitting the Etsy store again very very soon!
Aaaaaah, Avino - you must experience the ecstasy!

I dont pass out gushing compliments unless I'm totally sold on something - and I love everything I've tried. The lip balm is so creamy and the soap is wonderful (I love the Neroli soap). I haven't burned a candle yet because I want to savor all this goodness as long as I can! I did take the lids off and I catch myself sneaking a whiff everytime I walk past the jars! lol :)
