Get Inspired... at Inspirations in Roosevelt {Giveaway}

I think nearly everyone in the area, or at least in the Roosevelt area, is familiar with Inspirations. I remember when they first opened up in the old JCPenney building on Main Street, before they ended up at their current location on the east side of town near Big O and Sharp Image Salon. Besides the move many years ago, they have had several other changes, including ownership. But with all the changes, you could always depend on a store full of beautiful and inspirational products.
I visited Inspirations recently, and was in love with the new store layout and how Katherina has set-up some of the displays!
First of all, they have a new checkstand area that is amazing! Lined with vintage looking jars full of pretty candies, including Mary Janes, gumballs, candy sticks and so much more! One of my favorite pieces was an antique cabinet filled with ready to go holiday gifts of candies wrapped in boxes, cellophane, ribbons and bows... if you need any last minute neighbor, friend and teacher gifts, these will certainly stand out and be remembered more than the factory assembled food and candy gifts from the big stores...YuMmY!

There was a beautiful Christmas tree, that had a vintage winter wonderland feel to it, and just looking at it made me feel like I was in a magical place!

They carry a wonderful variety of home decor, scrapbook supplies, including the latest Tim Holtz vintagy items! And I really loved the shabby chic way these are all displayed using antique doors and racks with a shabby chic finish!

They had those absolutely adorable ties for little boys that are made in the latest new fabrics...and speaking of those new fabrics... they carry a fabric line now! I should totally get out my vintage Singer and start sewing again...
The Willow Tree display is sure to have pieces for every collector that will commemorate special times in their lives, and they have a comfy sitting area setup to help you browse through their book and music selection and make the right choices! Of course I could've gotten too relaxed if I had sat down on the couch, while listening to the beautiful Christmas music that was playing, and I would have fallen asleep hehe...

So whether you stop in for gifts for anyone on your list, stocking stuffers, or go pick up wonderful gifts for yourself with your Christmas money, you will not be disappointed!

They also offer classes, have author visits for book signings, and will special order books for you to save you time, if they don't have what you are looking for. I have only mentioned just a little of what they have to offer, so make sure you go see for yourself...I think you will like it!
Katherina is offering one of you a $20 Gift Certificate to use in the store, including classes (excludes distribution items).

It's Beginning to Smell A Lot Like Christmas... {Giveaway}

It may not be looking much like Christmas at our home yet, but it's definately beginning to smell like Christmas, with the help of my friend Gina Marie and her Scentsy business! I have some Sentimental Cider Scentsy bar cubes in the warmer and I'm running around singing Jingle Bells to anyone who will listen...okay, so noone wants to listen, but it hasn't stopped me yet.

Many of you may know Gina Marie and her team of Scentsy consultants without knowing it, because they really know how to promote their business' and you will find them at nearly every event in the Basin, and hosting many many shows throughout the area as well. Gina Marie has a Holiday Open House coming up next Thursday, December 15th from 11am to 1pm to stop by and purchase gifts for nearly anyone on your list (especially those people that you have no idea what to buy for). I'm not kidding when I say nearly everyone on your list, either... in addition to all of the fabulous decorative warmers and scented products that we have loved for some time now, they also have the Scentsy Buddies for the little (and not-so-little) ones on your list, and their new solid perfumes! There will also be Door Prizes and lots of FuN, and I'm thinking yummy refreshments, too!

Every month, Scentsy offers a brand new scent of the month and a new decorative warmer, and during that month you get 10% off of these items! The December warmer of the month is named "Blizzard". With it's glowing base of snowflakes it will be the perfect addition to your winter wonderland of decor no matter what your theme may be!

The new scent of the month is Comfort and Joy..they have this fun little video that I have to share with you that represents it...

If you aren't able to attend Gina Marie's open house, you can order directly from her website like I have done a few times. It's fast and easy and the products come right to my door! Be sure to order by December 19 to get your gifts in time for Christmas. The Scentsy bars fit perfect in I better hang up a stocking for myself this year and hope Santa fills it up with my favorites!
