Whenever there are giveaway events that I participate in, I love to get sponsors who create handmade items. I know I have said this many many times in the past but it is truly something I am passionate about.
Being able to promote someone's items and bring traffic to their gorgeous pieces, puts a smile on my face.
I have worked with some great sponsors over the past year and it has truly been an honor for me. One of my favorite sponsors was Marcy from Pics, Petals, & Scents.
Marcy creates sweet smelling handmade soaps and candles.I did a review of Marcy's soaps last month and I was amazed that before even opening up the package, the scent was so strong (yet airy) it filled up the space around it! The soaps scents never faded---- and an added bonus was the soaps looked absolutely adorable!
Once I got home from vacation this past week, I had a package from Marcy that I was not expecting! Marcy, being the sweet woman that she is, sent me one of my favorite items from her shop! The Jell-o Candle!
Along with this candle, she sent me two handmade soaps!
I couldn't believe Marcy did this. I immediately emailed her thanking her for her generosity. I also told her that she did such an amazing job making this Jell-o candle look real- my sister came upstairs and grabbed a spoon not knowing it was a candle! That could have ended badly! Thank God my mother stopped her haha.
I have to admit, I don't know when I plan on using the candle because it really does look so beautiful!!! I am dying to use it- but I might wait another week or so because I love the way it looks in my room ha ha. I did in fact use one of the soaps though- and just like her previous soaps it was a strong, airy sent- not too much- but just enough to keep me wanting to breathe it in!
I am so grateful that Marcy sent me these items. Pics, Petals, & Scents has an amazing selection of items that I will recommend to everyone! And along with great quality items, Marcy is a pleasure to work with. When I told her I planned on writing a blog post about these items- she respoded ---that is not why I sent them to you, you don't need to do that. THAT, RIGHT HERE, is one of the special qualities that Marcy posseses. I understood completely that it was not an obligation for me to write this post... but if I can spread the word about this great shop- then I will do whatever I can. As I said earlier- it is a passion of mine to promote handmade items- and it's even better when the shop owner is so nice, ha ha!
I know there has been times in the past where I have purchase an item from a shop and the owner is just rude and not pleasant to deal with. I won't go back to those shops. Good people really make a difference in my opinion- and Marcy is one of the best.
So Marcy- THANK YOU! It has been a great pleasure to work with you!
