Weekly Giveaway March 30-April 5 - Candle Confections

Enter this week's giveaway for a chance to win a Berry Creme Brulee Jumbo Cupcake Candle from Candle Confections

This week's giveaway will only be shipped to addresses in the United States.

Berry Creme Brulee Jumbo Cupcake Candle valued at $14.49

Sweet raspberries and blackberries will be the first fragrance you'll notice. Then, slowly, you'll notice the warm, crisp caramel and cool smooth custard. This is a dessert that must be slowly savored, and this candle is no exception. The subtle, sweet fragrances of this candle will slowly unfold, so enjoy...This is a scent you must experience!

The "cake" part of this candle is a warm, caramel color, while the color of the "frosting" is a light caramel. A generous handful of raspberries and blackberries are carefully placed on top, and a drizzling of berry "syrup" completes this confection.

How it works:
Every Monday, Nature Manipulated hosts a giveaway from a fabulous Etsy or Artfire shop. For a chance to win the prize you must leave a comment on NM's blog (to this post) with the following items:

1) A link to your favorite item in the featured seller's shop
2) Your contact information (email, Etsy or Artfire shop URL)

If you do not include BOTH items in the comments your entry will not be included.

The contest will run through 11:59 p.m. Eastern, Sunday, April 5, 2009. The following Monday, I will pick the winner at random and contact the winner via email or Etsy convo.

One entry per person.

This week's giveaway will only be shipped to addresses in the United States.

Sherry, Candle Confections' artist/owner has always been involved in art. She graduated from Maryland Institute of Art with a degree in Interior Architecture. Sherry was an Interior Designer for many years and while she loved certain aspects of it, she was never entirely satisfied. It took the birth of her son to quit her full-time job and begin making candles. Looking back, Sherry does not regret any of it. She is finally doing something she loves.

Sherry makes candles using high quality ingredients. She's tested many waxes, fragrance oils and wicks, and brings to you what she believes is the best looking and best smelling product. In addition, unlike many other "imitations", the wax on the top of Candle Confections' cupcake candles is whipped by hand, then carefully arranged on the base of the candle. Sherry does not use molds to create the yummy "frosting" you see on her Jumbo Cupcake Candles.

While you ae looking around Candle Confections, please take advantage of the special offer Sherry is offering NM's blog readers: Enjoy 20% off your order (excluding shipping) through April 30th. Please write "NMBLOG-20" in the notes to seller section upon checkout and Sherry will refund the difference through PayPal.

Post a link to your favorite item from Candle Confections, along with your contact information (email, Etsy or Artfire URL or username) for a chance to win a Berry Creme Brulee Jumbo Cupcake Candle.


Nature Manipulated is not responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged items. The prize will be shipped directly from the featured seller and Nature Manipulated is not responsible if the seller does not produce the item or do so in a timely fashion. Once the winner is selected, Nature Manipulated will notify the winner and provide the winner's shipping information to the featured seller. From that point on, all questions or concerns regarding the prize should be addressed to the featured seller. By entering the requested information in the comments, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of this giveaway.

Good luck and hope to see you again next Monday for another great giveaway, and throughout the week for other great features and posts.
