Giveaway....I'm on the radio today!

I am so excited. 
 Later today I am going to be interviewed
 on the radio by Pat Sloan from Favecrafts.

It's a live interview so no SECOND CHANCES! 
 That's something to make you nervous about. 
 Thank goodness Pat emailed me with a list about what we will be talking about.  Favecrafts is a great website and I was so thrilled when they contacted me to ask if I would do the interview. 
 It was another one of the those moments when I did my
infamous "Happy Dance" around the house.

 Do you have a "Happy Dance"? 
My teenage sons always look at me in disbelief!

The interview will be available to hear starting at 3:30 pm EST.  Just click HERE at Favecrafts.
You can even download the interview to a player
 so you can listen to it anytime!

So, what will we be talking about during the interview?
Let me share it with you....


I love having a candle burn in my house when I am home. 
 It's just one of those simple pleasures. 
 During the winter months I use the scent "Winter"
 Don't you just love their candles?

 Are you  thinking OK  what's so special about an ordinary candle?


 That's the point....
It's just plain ordinary.
So let's dress it up!


 Like I said, I love burning a candle
 but I really don't care for a plain candle with the wrapper on it. 

Remember my post about the plain kleenex box HERE? 
 Same problem...

I went to my stash of decorative papers,
and then scrounged through the ribbon bin
 looking for something special.
  Now a hunt through the buttons.... 
Actually this is an old earring from a garage sale find. 
 JUST PERFECT!


 Here's another one... 
This time I used some old wallpaper.


 Gotta love the leopard ribbon and big button.


You tell me....
Doesn't that look so much better?
It just made the ordinary candle look extra-ordinary!


I use the smaller size candle in the bathroom....


I purchase these buttons at Wallmart...


Here's at tip...

Don't glue the decorative paper to the candle.
  Just make a sleeve with the paper that slides over the candle to cover it.  When the candle is burned down and you through it away, remove the cover and place it on the new candle!


Looks so much better in the bathroom!


Now for the giveaway....

Spring is on it's way
 HOPEFULLY.
So let's celebrate with a set of spring time door cans.
Pink is my favorite color, and hopefully yours. 
These are perfect for the spring time.
 You can hang them inside your house.

 
Or hang them outside your house.

Good luck with that! I had to do something similar one time but I had a 90 second time limit to give tips. Can I tell you how fast that is? I love your floral door cans, Sherry! That wreath is just great, too. I am feeling I need a new something on my front door; my current one is too wintery.
