How About a Little Giveaway?

I'm not sure if it's the fumes from all the essential and fragrance oils, or whether it's this much needed rain we've been having...but I feel like a little giveaway.

Here are the requirements:

1) Be a follower of my blog, or my FB page- or both, if you like.
2) Leave a comment in either place that includes these words: "Yummy! Sugar Scrubs"

That's it!

If you win, you will get one 4 oz. pkg of these Solid Sugar Scrubs. Right now I have one called Candy Shoppe, made with white sugar, and another called Amaretto Eggnog, made with brown sugar. You choose.

There will be a winner chosen (randomly) of those who are followers of and comment on my FB page, and a winner of those who are followers of and comment on this post.  Only one entry per page, per person. So that's two entries per person, if you follow and comment on both this post and my FB page.

You know...I think I'll even throw in one of those lovely Green Tea Lemongrass bars of soap!

So, lets see...what's a good deadline....let's make it September 24th at midnight PST.

I'll draw a couple of names sometime Saturday and post them in both places.

Good luck!

Keep your eyes peeled for my soaps and other bath items to show up soon in my etsy shop (which is currently on siesta!) 

If you're local and interested in something, just email me.

Thanks for visiting!
