Oil burner and soy melt gift pack giveaway

Since I released the soy melts, I have been asked several times if I sell the burners as well. I have since sourced some lovely white porcelain oil burners which are now available for purchase. They are available on Felt with either a gift box of melts and tealights, or with a box of melts.

To celebrate Spring, and the addition of oil burners to my soy melt range, I am giving away a gift set to one lucky newsletter subscriber. The prize pack includes a porcelain oil burner with a gift box of 10 soy melts (or 12 space invader soy melts) and three soy tealights.

If you're already a subscriber, just follow the instructions in the newsletter I sent out on Tuesday. If you aren't already a subscriber, you can sign up here. Not only will you be entered in the draw, but you will also receive monthly updates with information about new products, upcoming events and exclusive offers. To be in to win, you just need to sign up before the 30th September. Entries are limited to one per person, and the winner will be drawn on the 1st of October. Don't forget to tell your friends who might be interested in receiving my newsletter and winning this great prize to sign up as well!

Whirlwind trip to Auckland

Last weekend was an action packed trip to Auckland. I managed to fit in visiting some potential stockists, catch up with family and friends, had a lovely day at the Devonport Craft Market, and catch the very last show of the Circ de Soleil – which was awesome. I think I'm only just recovering now!

At the Devonport Craft market I got to catch up with Elizabeth from Zippity Doodah and Sarah from Songbird Designs. I also met lots of new people, including Glen from Glennie Knits, Leanne from Feel at Home, Helene from Happy go Knitty, Diane from Nala Boo, Renee from The Little White Box and Kylie who makes mosaics from broken china. If I hadn't started to feel guilty about neglecting my stall I would have introduced myself to more of the local crafters.

I'd like to do a shout-out to Sarah McLeod to say thank you for her awesome hospitality, and also for so kindly offering to take some of my candles to sell on my behalf at future markets in Devonport. Thank you also to the shoppers that came and said hi. It's always lovely to put a face to a name.

This weekend I'll be a bit closer to home, at the Spring Encraftment Market tomorrow at Villa Maria College Hall, from 10am – 3pm. See you there!
