The Eighth Day of Christmas

On the 8th Day of Christmas PDR gave to Hillary (Yes, again!  That's what happens when you comment a lot!)... some adorable cards from Kathryn Kelly and some homemade soy candles by Jane Szumowski!

Hillary will receive these two great greeting cards from Kathryn Kelly.  Kathryn Kelly, based out of Philadelphia, PA, makes a variety of adorable paper goods.  From pretty greeting cards to handmade notebooks, her designs are youthful and fresh. We particularly had been eyeing up the "We've got great chemistry" card and were thrilled when she included this in her giveaway.  Kathryn hand makes and screen prints her cards, journals, gift tags, and more in bold and bright colors and fun patterns.  We think her creativity and simple, but beautiful, designs make her cards really something to desire and we really appreciate her contributing to our giveaway. Be sure to check out her shop and see her lovely nature inspired pieces in her Flora and Fauna sections -- definitely some lovely pieces to add to your stationary collection.

In addition to those great cards, Hillary will also receive some clean burning, soy candles made by Jen's sister-in-law, Jane.  Jane's candles are made with essential oils and smell good enough to eat so you can enjoy things like Cotton Candy and Blue Berry Cobbler without having to worry about the calories.  And, not only do these candles smell amazing, but these are a great example of making the most out of your centerpieces and repurposing glassware as the larger candle is made using a jar from Jen's wedding. These particular jar candles will burn for hours and leave your home smelling like a bakery or candy shop.  Jane currently does not have a shop of her own, but if you would like more information about her candles or would like to special order some please send us an email and we'll be sure to let her know.

Thanks again, to Jane and Kathryn Kelly for their contributions to our gift giveaway.  We wish you success and happiness and a safe and healthy holiday season.

Congratulations, once again, to our lucky lady Hillary.  We hope you enjoy your prizes and we thank you for being such an ardent supporter of Paper Doll Romance.
