Win this candle!

Win this peppermint-scented votive candle!

It’s time for OurCandleMaking’s first giveaway!

I wrote a guest post for about getting your kids involved in a project to make a peppermint soy candle. After that, I decided to give that candle away on this blog.

The contest will run through the end of the day November 30th, 2011. The first week in December I’ll draw names to see who will end up winning the candle.

How to win

There are four methods of entry:

1. Sign up for the OCM Newsletter

If you’re already a subscriber, you’re already in the running. If you’re not, you’ve got until the end of the month! As a bonus, you’ll also get the free candle making lessons when you sign up.

2. Entries on Twitter

You can acually enter via Twitter two different ways:

  • Tweet about the contest. I’ve made it easy for you –>
  • Tweet about the newsletter. Click –>

Be sure to follow OurCandleMaking on Twitter in order to be notified if you’ve won. Also, it’s important to mention @OurCandleMaking in your tweet so I actually get the entry. :)

3. “Like” our Facebook page

Contests and freebies will be posted on the Our Candle Making Facebook page from time to time. If you “like” it, you’ll get the notifications! Current “likers” on Facebook are also in the running.

4. Leave a comment

Answer the following question in the comments to enter that way:
What does Christmas smell like to you?

How you’ll be notified

Once the contest closes, I’ll put everyone’s name/email address/twitter/etc. into a bucket and draw one. I’ll get in touch with you via the method the winner used to enter. For example, if you entered via a comment, newsletter subscription, and tweet and I draw out your twitter name, I’ll send you a Twitter message.

A note about Twitter entries: Remember, if you are entering via Twitter, be sure to follow us. If the winner is from twitter, I’ll send a Direct Message and I can only send DMs to people who are following us.

So there are 5 ways to enter in total. The more ways you enter, the greater your chance is to win!

Here are the ways to enter one more time:

Good luck to everyone!
