Satellites, Leaves, Tony Romo - Giveaway



This week's giveaway is sponsored by Scentsy by Amber. Scentsy began in 2003 with the powerfully simple idea of aromatic candles – decorative warmers with wax melted by the heat of a light bulb instead of a traditional wick and flame. Scentsy by Amber offers a number of delicious scents and stylish warmers to fit every decor.



How to enter: Simply leave a comment (here or on Facebook) and tell us one of your favorite things about fall. For a BONUS ENTRY, be the first person to guess the riddle in the giveaway title. Please don't forget to leave an email address, if I cannot contact you then you cannot collect your prize!

Contest ends at 10:00PM on Tuesday, October 04, 2011.  Winners will be announced Wednesday, October 05, 2011.  US Residents only.

Congrats to Deb!  She has won this gorgeous Zebra Plug-In Warmer, a $20 value. This warmer is great for adding a little fun to any home decor and would make a wonderful gift for a friend. It is perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, and smaller areas with limited counter or table space.  The plug in is approximately 3" wide and 3.5" tall and uses a 15 low watt light bulb.  


I think this riddle was too easy, wasn't it?  The answer was indeed "Things that Fall."  I say that with the loving snicker of a wife who's being subjected to too much football!  But really... go Cowboys!


Didn't win?  Don't worry!  You can always find a stylish accent at Scentsy by Amber.

Are you interested in sponsoring one of our giveaways and having your business listed on our site as shown above? Email me at dfwcraftshows@gmail.com for more information!

Hems for Hearts – Charity Fashion Show and Silent Auction
"We are putting together a charity fashion show for an organization called Amazing Little Hearts. They support children with Congenital Heart Defects. We are currently looking for 10 to 12 children clothing and accessory vendors that are interested in having their items featured in the fashion show and to set up a booth at the event. Each vendor will have to offer a little something different to feature in the show and therefore will not be in direct competition with another vendor. In fact, this would be a great way to team up with another vendor that compliments your items. For instance, the hair accessory vendors would need to work directly with the clothing vendors to coordinate colors and any other specifics. All the models in the show will be a child or sibling that is directly affected by Congenital Heart Defects."
