Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains; another, a moonlit beach; a third, a family dinner of pot roast and sweet potatoes during a myrtle-mad August in a Midwestern town.

Have you heard of Scentsy? I’m sure most of you have. If you haven’t, you are truly missing out.
Scentsy is a flameless candle that comes in a bajillion scents (I’ve counted… there are exactly a bajillion). The reason I got hooked on Scentsy is because there is no flame and if one of our bumbling animals tips it over, it’s won’t burn them (won’t burn kids, either, but we don’t have any).
Also? I’m have a bit of ADD when it comes to scents. I like to burn different ones on different days, depending on my mood. And it’s hard to do that with candles because they are so bulky.
Anyway, to make a long post much shorter, I’m having a basket party over at Mommy Taco’s place through December 31st! You can purchase it all the way up through the 19th and still get it in time for Christmas! It’s a perfect gift for anyone still on your list. Even the guys. Huzzy takes a travel tin with him underway. He loves it.
Bonus? I’m going to do a giveaway for anyone who reads my blog and purchases from the party. I’m not sure what yet (I’m still unemployed), but at the VERY least, I’ll buy you a trio scents of your choice. However, if my party is as big of a success as the last one, I’ll do a MUCH BIGGER giveaway. So if you purchase from the party, leave a comment here and I’ll put you in for the drawing =)
Double bonus? You can figure out my first name since Mommy Taco used my real name =P
**Note: The giveaway is from me, not MommyTaco or Scentsy. I will purchase the items and give them away myself.
