Bella Pure is pure magic for your lips!

Bella Pure recently sent us samples for our Holiday Sample Bag and included a sample just for me! What did I get? One of their new CoQ10 Vegan Lip Conditioners!

Of course I eagerly and liberally applied my new lip conditioning balm, and it went on so smooth and soft. No greasy feeling lips, they just feel smooth and soft, which is great as I ride my bike all winter and my lips turn into a mess!

I am stocking up now on great lip moisturizers and preparing for yet another wild bike riding winter in Upstate, NY, where the winter seems to last atleast 7 months of the year.

Strawberry Hedgehog A Cute Name With Super Cute Samples

I definitly love it when shops that participate in the sample bags send me a little sample of my own, it makes me feel appreciated, not to mention I have loved every single sample sent in!

Strawberry Hedgehog recently sent in their big box o' samples, with 2 heart soaps just for me. First of all, I love hearts, I have heart everything, even a couple of tattoos. Second, they smell great, I received one lavender and one eucalyptus-lime, so refreshing.

Who doesnt like a cute little soap next to the kitchen sink, so guests dont have to use dish soap?

I know that is right where our eucalyptus-lime will be going, and the lavender right in the bathroom next to all of our other handmade soaps from etsy!

Teas the Season, pull up a chair and lets sip to stay warm!

The water is on, the fireplace is burning, lets sit down for a nice cup of hot tea with SBS Teas.

We recently received a big box of fragrant bliss from Sbs Teas, who sent in tea samples and reusable tea bags wrapped up in cloth and ribbon.

I try really hard to wait for the first day of sales to grab my bag of samples, but the teas are driving me wild, especially with this cold dreary New York weather!

So many samples, so little time!

The samples are starting to fill up my little crafting nook, add a new 3 package set to the crowd, that I received yesterday!

The first package I tore into was the samples from Friends For Life/Caspunky, which are super cute handmade greeting cards with animals. On the back there is information about the rising epidemic in our country with homeless animals, encouraging people to spay and neuter their critters. Sending out a message to adopt, is always well received when on super cute animal cards. Totally cool!

The next package I opened was from Vegancraftastic, a whole bunch of super cute fabric buttons with robots, squirrels, and hedgehogs to name a few. Each sample from Vegancraftastic also includes a coupon to their shop, perfect timing for holiday shopping. Who doesnt love a coupon?

Last but not least is the package from Jennifer Lynn Productions included in this package are some gorgeous photograph cards, these cards have high quality photographs on the front and are blank on the inside. If you are looking for a card for someone who appreciates art, these cards are perfect.

With each package that arrives at the post office I get more and more excited about the upcoming release of our holiday sample bags. When I think it cant get any better, something totally unique and out of the ordinary arrives. Keep checking back for more contributors, and remember, our holiday sample bags go on sale November 1, 2009, and they wont last long at all!
