Michaels Craft Store Finds | September 5-7, 2014 | Fall and Holiday

September 8, 2014 Everywhere I have looked lately, fall and holiday are bursting through the remnants of summer.  From the leaves on the trees in my yard starting to turn their brilliant shade of red to the stores at the mall adding aisle after aisle of faux Christmas greenery...summer is becoming a distant memory.  I am not sure where I lost track of it...summer that is.  Somewhere in between the morning watering of all that grows in my garden and the nighttime sitting and watching the sun set earlier and earlier the days ticked off of the calendar and another page was changed. Soon the fireflies will disappear along with the butterflies and for months there will be nothing but a blanket of white.  And all that will remain will be the hope of green once more and nights on the porch listening to summer, after dark. Fall is my favorite time of year.  Perhaps it is because of the cluster of holidays that begin at that time...feeding my forever creative soul. And no matter how old I become, I still seek out all that reminds me of my youth. This weekend I stopped in Michaels Craft store twice...not for anything in particular, just checking out what they had out for Halloween.  I can have a sale of my own from my attic, so it's not that I needed anything I just like seeing how trends change and what products are available. While I was out for Chinese lunch, I was thinking about my sisters new puppy and how I want to make her a Santa Claus red cap for picture taking.  And with that thought I thought...maybe a Halloween Witches hat too.  {me with Spirit on Saturday} As soon as I walked into the store I saw the display of Halloween goodies and sure enough there were colorful witches hats...yet not singles but a garland.  Perfect.  I could clip them apart picking the perfect color and use the others atop pumpkins for outside decorating.    I know it may sound silly...putting the hat on the puppy...but the back story of this is my sister had two Golden dogs and in a matter of one year, they both died from cancer and she is beyond devastated over it.  She wanted a new puppy and with every turn she was met with one disappointment after another.  And it is hard to be a family member watching someone be so heartbroken that mere words cannot console them for over a year. Last week, she once more sent pictures of a litter of ten puppies and once more had her heart set on getting one....and all you can do is hope that this time it works out for her.  For a year I told her that when He thought it was her time...her buddy would come. Happily....it was finally her time.  She sent me a picture of the runt of the litter telling me she picked this little girl out and she needed a name.  It was late and I was tired but I said...what about Spirit.  {when my brother went through the same thing after losing his German Shepard many years ago he asked me for a name for his new puppy...and it was I told him all along...so she is called Faith.} I thought Spirit...not as a ghostly name...but one of happiness...joy...elation...bring her out of her sadness ....  Spirit. We later found out that she was born on the day (this year) that my sister lost her second golden...last year. He, always has a plan. ;) Anyway...back to crafts...here are the little hats and Halloween.  Around to the other side is now THANKSGIVING....wow.  This colored glass is a cheaper looking version to that I have from my grandmother many, many years ago.  everything old is ...new again.     Love packaging...  In the impulse aisle on the way to the registers...these new Christmas $1.00 goodies...paper, notepads, cards, files, package gift tags, journals, so much more. Great for filling up gift bags...and now is the time to grab what you want because in a few weeks...this will be picked out and gone before Christmas ever gets here.   The wings on the fairies are glittery.     Love these tags.  next visit I am getting more of the Santa paper items.     What I got this visit.      candle holders        bags of chipboard letters   Burlap is IN and on everything.  A lot of the holiday ribbon spools are burlap decorated too.    Cute metal letters...  The photo boxes that I use to hold everything in cute kids décor.    Christmas paint-ables  I bought the gingerbread house ornaments to paint as gifts for my family      And oh yes, Spirit in her hat...

Bath & Body Works | We Love Faul - Haul Part Deux

September 4, 2014 I really didn't need anything more from the new We Love Fall floor-set but I did do a phone order to get the Pumpkin Pecan Waffle Body Wash and the 3 wick candle while they were on sale for $10.oo and I added in the Black Cat Soap Dispenser so I stopped in to pick them up and, well...you know how that is. This store looked even prettier than the store I was in for the early floor-set.  And I found myself seeing other things that store didn't have...and of course...they jumped into my bag.   Here is the first order....the trouble with this is the sales associate picked it out and she missed seeing the flaws in the soap dispenser.  The glaze has some misses on his little face...  And on the pumpkin.  Probably dusty when the glaze went on it and it didn't stick.  The next find was two of the new pumpkins in cream.  Priced at $12.50 each I wanted them for my dining table. And while looking to see what I would get with those I stumbled on those cute holders.  The first one I grabbed had Pumpkin Spice on it...and the second Pumpkin Café.  Not sure which I liked better I bought both.  I bought one with the coupon for a free signature item, and added the other with the two pumpkins to use a survey.Funny thing was I didn't look at them close enough in the store to see....they are not two different....but yes, you know it... different sayings on both sides.  No big deal, it is really cute and it can be used to hold soaps and lotions, napkins or salt and pepper shakers...candles....whatever..so it's not going to be a wasted sale.  Plus, they are pretty enough to fill with Fall Goodies for a gift!   And the last grouping of goodies...I got a few more travel sized scents, a full sized FFM and more of that yummy scented Pumpkin Spice Latte hand cream and a candle.  I did call a few stores today and found out that four more holiday scents have arrived....Alpine Frost, Snow and Slopes, Jolly Holiday Christmas and Winter Apple Crisp. So I did update my featured article and my Face Book Album.  If any more new names show up I will add them as well. My list of favorites from just seeing the pictures keeps growing...and most are on the  Made with Love Collection What are yOuRs?

Bath & Body Works | Holiday Traditions Candle label thoughts

September 2, 2014 Day two after the photos of some of the new holiday test candles released and I am still smiling big after seeing so many new collections pictures.  I am still taking them all in, as I wait to see other photos of candles more close up before really deciding on my opinions of all of the labels....But last night I was really checking out the new Holiday Traditions Candles and comparing them to years past. A friend and I got to talking about the Holiday Traditions Signature Body Care collection for 2014 wondering what the packaging is going to look like after seeing these almost juvenile looking labels and we said we thought that these resembled last years Holiday Signature Body Care.... I posted the pictures of last years items below and you can see the Holiday Tradition candles really didn't match the theme of the Body Care..... Yet this years does. A bit. I liked the signature labels on both the body care and home fragrances...and even though the colors all worked well together, the cute little winter girl wasn't carried through to the candle labels. And now this makes me wonder even more what the Body Care for 2014 is going to look like. What are Your thoughts?  Visit me  here  and let me know.         --------------------------------------------------------------------Holiday Traditions 2013 Body Care   Holiday Traditions Candles 2013     Holiday Traditions 2012

Bath & Body Works | Pre- Labor Day Sale Purchases | Candle Thoughts

August 31, 2014 My week has been crazy busy. With hubby working 6 days a week 12 hours a day and my trying to take care of everything else (with a problem with my eyes)...including painting projects outside...my plate has been full and migraine filled. Add into that my fun work of writing stuff early in the morning or late at night...the brunt of it all piles on me on the weekends.  So while I haven't been posting a ton of writings here, that is not to say I haven't posted photos and information on Facebook.   And in the mix of all of this I am trying to get a finalized...this list of the Holiday test candles that we all know should be coming out.  I checked my writings last year and at this time last year I already had my candles from the Customer Service place....so we are a bit behind in getting the information out. I keep hitting a few road blocks....which I am sure the company is happy to read.  I understand their wanting for whatever reason to put these candles out in certain locations to see how they do....but they need to understand all that does is make some richer.  As soon as they are spotted, ebay and IG sellers load up on them in the stores and flood the secondary market....or so I was told.  I do believe it because I did see it with the Fall Test Candle Scents...and heard the moans from store managers. I say it again...put the candles on the web page first...get a feel of what people are liking...  put limits on how many each person can get if you need to....then load up your stores for big time sales. When I say I have checked stores... I really have checked stores....and this is what I know so far.... We are going to see really soon this line of candles I have been talking about for some time now....finally come out with the next signature fragrances and I was told they are the colored glass jars and they are $30.00 each and beautiful.  Some stores have them in already just not placed out for sale....but that being said, some WB stores may put them out this Tuesday evening for floor set.  Maybe....{a few of the stores told me so, but I don't count on anything until I see it}  NEW* Home Fragrance Candles Colored Glass with full decoration around the jar$30.00Coming to all stores with the Wild Madagascar Vanilla Signature Fragrance Intrigue and Opulence ❥Baltic Black Pearlpink peppercorn, vetiver, liquid amber ❥Cardamom and Suedegolden apple, cardamom, rich woods ❥Crimson Velvetpomegranate, velvet orchid, blonde patchouli ❥Sapphire Skysugared citrus, granny smith apples, white cedar wood ❥Smoked Berries and Incensevibrant cranberries, smoked cinnamon, incense ❥Sparkling Ambersparkling amber, cashmere woods, Tonka bean ❥Topaz Waterspristine waters, lily blossom, white woods ❥Golden Woodsblack pepper, vetiver, pine needlesNow this scented candle  WMV should appear when the fragrance line launches later in September...the 29th I think.New *Signature Home Fragrance ❥Wild Madagascar Vanillapear blossom, mandarin nectar, Madagascar VanillaSo what is next regarding Holiday?  It's funny... I am told right now there are four collections...and that the candles are in the stores...and when I asked anything about them.....CRICKETS.  I ask when can I find out more....and I am told to call back....okey dokey....So...there are four collections so far.  Now we all know things change on a dime so there could be many more planned...this is just what one store told me that was confirmed but two other stores.Names?  Well there is the Snow and Slopes line....and definitely a Holiday Traditions line....and the others, well I will just need to call back when they told me to.  Here are the candle names for the snow and slopes and the White Barn Core and Seasonal.....Now I am not sure if they are considering the White Barns as part of the collection names....in a bit we will find out.Oh and Holiday is scheduled so far to set November 2nd.Trust me... I am as excited as you all are to know the names.... it does make me happy....  I can't see or buy the candles easily now with them putting the kibosh on purchases and stores no longer doing phone orders..... { drats!!!!}  but that is okay....if they didn't need my hundreds of dollars...  :)I am hoping that my friends who are lucky enough to get to a store that is hosting the new holiday candles will share a few {hundred} photos.  :)New * Home Fragrance 2014 Snow and Slopes Collection ❥Alpine Frostfrosted clementine, snow covered pine and fir balsamfresh balsamhot buttered rum mahogany teakwoodmarshmallow firesidesparkling iciclesspiced apple toddy tis the seasonvanilla snowflakewinterWhite Barn Core Collection Eucalyptus MintJapanese Cherry BlossomLavendar VanillaLimoncelloMahogany Teakwood White Barn Seasonal Collection Bergamot WoodsCinnamon Clove BudsCranberry WoodsFiresideFresh BalsamLeavesRenew and RefreshSandalwood Citrus ❥Thanksgiving Feasttart cranberry, holly berry, touch of cinnamon ❥Thanksgiving Harvestharvest pumpkin, spice clove, vanilla cream ❥Thanksgiving Morningpumpkin waffle batter, powdered sugar, pure maple syrup Tiki BeachWatermelon Lemonade------------------------The other day when I posted that big huge list of names of candles, there were the new candles from Opulence in there but also a few old friends.....  I am guessing these will be part of one of the collections we don't know yet.alpine frost    at eucalyptus spearmintautumnautumn mumsautumn nightautumn skyBaltic black pearlbanana nutmeg bread puddingbergamot woodsblack tieblackberry bramble teabourbon butterscotchcaramel pumpkin swirlcardamom and suedecayenne caramelchampagne toastcranberry pear belinnicranberry woodseucalyptus mintfarm stand applefiresideflannelfresh balsamgreen apple orchardharvest gatheringharvest peachesheirloom pumpkinhot buttered rumjapanese cherry blossomlavender vanillaleaveslemon mint leaflimoncellomahogany teakwoodmarshmallow firesidepeach belinnipumpkin applepumpkin caramel lattepumpkin cinnamon bunpumpkin cupcakepumpkin pecan wafflespumpkin sugared donutsalted caramel cornsandalwood citrussea salt and maple popcornsmoked berries and incensesparkling ambersparkling iciclesspiced apple toddyspiced pumpkin cidersweater weathersweet cinnamon pumpkinsweater weather/sweet cinnamon pumpkin/pumpkin appletailgatethanksgiving feastthanksgiving harvestthanksgiving morningtis the seasontopaz waterstrick or treatvanilla chaivanilla pumpkin marshmallowvanilla snowflakewarm caramel ciderwasabi applewinter ---------------------------- As soon as I get a completed list of Holiday Tests I will post it.  Just know I am doing all I can... Now here are a few peeks at todays shopping damage.... I received two different mailers from Victoria's Secret advertising their new Fearless Scent.. one for a free panty and one for a free mist.  I chose the Untamed Love Spell. I did try the new Fearless and my initial thoughts were older lady scent.... like a nana scent, when it first went on me....  it dried down okay but I am not sure I would spend the big bucks they want for it...  I received two we love fall mailers from bbw for mini candles and I chose these for my mini pumpkin domed holders.  I didn't have a good photo of the owl soap dispenser so I shot this one...  This store that was one of 20 that set early was sold out of all of the gift sets I shared last Monday and a bunch of other things I wanted.  I am glad I got to see and buy what I did and now when my stores set for Wednesday morning I will already know what to look for. I got this cute apple half sleeve $9.50.  I am not sure for what yet but it was cute.   I grabbed 5 of these purrfect potion hand soaps and one vampires blood.  Sadly I didn't get them for the $3.00 sale the day they were offered but what can you do when you cant get to the store.    I grabbed one of each of these lip glosses... buy 2 get one free...priced at $8.00 each The Smart soaps in the two new scents were out, priced at $8.00 each or 3 for $18.  I need to get my slip adjusted as the sale price didn't come up and I missed it at the register talking about the upcoming holiday info.   This was a bagged gift of two mini candles and two pocket bacs with a coupon for $11.00 candles for $10.00.   This coupon starts September 29th....the other candle coupon in the coffret starts this Wednesday.The fall sprays were out and on sale today.... $3.00And I grabbed another Pumpkin Pecan Waffle 2 in 1 as it is very yummy.  And five pumpkin spice pocketbacs and the Autumn TMC.  And here is a picture of the Walmart candles everyone is talking about that are suppose to be made from the same manufacturer that BBW candles are made at, and are suppose to be really good dupes.  I did buy one tonight, the Pecan Waffles to try for myself.     So that was my pre-Labor day sales shopping...{other than two Halloween ornaments in Hallmark} I purchased Snoopy and the Dracula....
