Cool Therapies Giveaway


"External applications for an internal well being!"

With a motto like that, how can you not be drawn to Cool Therapies!

They have some really incredible bath n body products to pamper yourself with.  If you've been lucky enough to get one of their samples in any of the last few months sampler boxes at Out Of The Box Sampler, then you know exactly what I'm talking about.

So if you're up to pampering yourself silly (you know you deserve it) then go and check out their shoppe and just do it!

But until then, enter this giveaway for a chance to win the most delicious smelling scrub my nose has ever had the pleasure of sniffing!

"Choconut!"


Ingredient list...sugar, peanut butter, chocolate, coconut oil, cocoa butter.
All natural ingredients, and no... you can not eat this.  You may want to, but you can't.

To me (and my son, who wanted to eat this) it smells just like peanut butter cups! 

Here's the bummer, I just have one full size scrub to giveaway here!

So I'm going to make this giveaway a little tougher.  You won't have to leave a million seperate comments, or follow everybody and their brother.

All you have to do is make a purchase from Cool-Therapies (from now until August 2nd)  and then come back here and tell me what you bought, and your invoice number, so I can verify your purchase with the owner.  Then I'll enter your name into the drawing to win this scrumptiously delicious sugar scrub. 

 Trust me, you won't be disappointed with any of their products!

So let's go shopping, then be sure to come back and enter!
(Be sure to tell them Out Of The Box Sampler sent you)

One winner will be choosen by random.org on August 2nd at midnight (EST).
You will have 24 hours to respond to the email that you'll be sent or a new winner will be picked.

Good Luck

CONGRATULATIONS AND THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED!


I'm bringing you another primitive shoppe that I love for this giveaway!

Scaredy Cat Primitives recently joined our July sampler boxes at Out Of The Box Sampler.  They sent in the cutest bottle cap magnets with a prim flair to them.  I hope you were lucky enough to get one of them in your box this month.  If not, I can tell you there are a few of them in their Etsy shoppe that are just too cute.  Check out these milk can ones...


But there are other cuties in her shoppe too besides bottle caps...


I love primitive signs, especially Halloween ones.  That's my favorite holiday.  (okay, well it's a close second behind Christmas)


And of course, Scaredy Cat Primitives wouldn't be complete without a good ole' black cat sneaking around.   Or in this case, sitting around.

So are you ready for your chance to win something from the spooktacular shoppe?

Scaredy Cat Primitives is giving away 2 of their "Live Simply" wooden signs.  You can hang these just about anywhere for a little reminder to enjoy life and live simply!  They are both a hunter green color and measure approximately 4" x 4".

Angies Raggedy Patch Giveaway


GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED.

WINNING COMMENT NUMBERS ARE:

CONGRATULATIONS AND THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED!




Prim is definitely in!  Do you know what prim is?  It's short for primitive which is something that's old, of early development.  However, what's wonderful about this modern age is that you'll find many artists who specialize in "primitive" type art and creations.  There are so many ways to make brand new products that appear to be old and worn. 

Angies Raggedy Patch is one of those artists.   I absolutely love browsing thru her shoppe and checking out all the time worn goodies...

I love old jars with worn looking labels and fabric tops.  Reminds me of granny's kitchen where there were always jars all around that had all kinds of special things in them, from clothespins to the last batch of homebaked cookies!

And don't those cinnamon buns look good enough to eat.  They are made of fabric!  You would never know it from the picture.

If you're reading this, then you are in luck, because Angies Raggedy Patch has graciously donated a couple giveaway items for our readers!!
Not only will you get the cutest notepads and pen from a partner site of hers, you will also get a $20.00 gift certificate to be used at her website or Etsy shoppe. (shipping charges will still apply).

I'm so excited to give away two of these little bundles & gift certificates!  So are you ready to enter?
Here we go...
(Please leave a seperate comment for each entry)

Rocky Corner Soapworks Giveaway


GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED.
WINNERS ARE COMMENT NUMBERS:

#24 The Wax Addict


CONGRATULATIONS AND THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED!
 
 
I'm so excited to be doing a Rocky Corner Soapworks giveaway! 

This company has been in the Out Of The Box Sampler every month since late 2009.  Everytime their samples arrive here, they never cease to amaze me with what they send in.  This month, they are the Box Sponsor for our July, Summer Beach Party themed, sampler boxes at Out Of The Box Sampler.  You will be so spoiled with full size bars in Fresh Honeydew (my favorite), Tranquility with a Twist, and Wallis Sands Sea Spray Soaps.   Every single box in July will get one!!!  Just look at how gorgeous and refreshing this soap is!


Here's a little of the interview I did with Karen, the owner of Rocky Corner Soapworks

How long have you been in business?

I researched, studied and made raw materials lists about seven years ago. I was ready to take the plunge when I literally took a plunge, down a flight of stairs and broke my leg. All thoughts of soapmaking flew out the window, replaced with surgeries and a lengthy rehab. Two years ago the timing seemed right, the kids were older, and the family support was terrific!


What prompted you to go into business?

It started out as a hobby and I swiftly grew to love it, developing itself into a family business in no time. The whole process from start to finish is intriguing and satisfying... I also love the endless creative possibilities of using fragrances, colors and raw materials. It pleases me to see the beautiful finished products that soapmakers create.


How did you come up with the name for your business?

Our farm in Danville, NH (est. 1992) is named Rocky Corner Farm. It made sense that our soap business would be similarly named.


Tell us a little about yourself.

I've been an Executive Assistant for both a Fortune 500 Company and Governor Stephen Merrill during his Administration. I've homeschooled for the last 13 years :) I LOVE gardening! Everywhere you turn on our farm, we have lovely perennial beds from which we harvest and dry botanicals for use in our soaps.


Tell us a little about the products that you sell.

We primarily deal with all natural homemade soap, aka cold process soap, selling them by the bar and loaf. Listening to our customers drives what we produce and in recent months we've begun making bath bombs/bath fizzies. Rocky Corner Soapworks also carries a small selection of lip balms, shampoos and lotions. :)

To read the rest of the interview CLICK HERE.

Rocky Corner Soapworks also has a new line of lip balms, grapeseed oils, lotions and shampoo to pamper yourself in.



So now that you know you definitely want to try out this awesome business, let's get to giving away some of their products!

Up for grabs are 3 full size soap bars in "After The Rain" and another 3 full size soap bars in my favorite, "Fresh Honeydew!"

That's a total of 6 winners for this giveaway!

Here's how to enter:

Front Porch Candle Giveaway


GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED.
WINNERS ARE:
#73 SCOTT

CONGRATULATIONS AND THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED!

It's definitely time for another slew of giveaways here at the Out Of The Box Sampler blog.  I've really fallen behind on getting them listed.  So let's get started with the Front Porch Candle Co giveaway!

I went browsing their scentlist and absolutely fell in love with this candle business!  I'm definitely a "foody" type scent girl.  Anything that smells like a bakery of yummy goodness has me hooked.  Front Porch Candle Co's entire scentlist falls into that category!!!

Apple Raspberry Crumble
Black Cherry Bomb
Chocolate Raspberry Truffle
Peppermint Cocoa
Prairie Kitchen
Sugar Cookie
Watermelon Splash
and many more!

 A big box of tarts arrived here in the mail  for the July Out Of The Box Sampler that's going on sale July 6th!  The smell when I opened the box was just heavenly.  I actually went thru each tart and sniffed all the different scents that they sent in.  Keep your fingers crossed that you'll get one in your box for July.

There are a couple of really neat incentives that the Front Porch Candle Co offers on their website that you won't want to miss out on.

They have the "Refer a Friend" program.  If you are already a customer of theirs, you can earn a $20.00 gift certificate if you refer a friend who then places and order and puts your name in on the checkout page.  

Plus, you can visit their message board and enter the monthly contest to win free products!

They have a awesome Candle or Tart monthly club too that you can sign up for.

And, right now they are having their "Christmas in July" sale.  You can get $5.00 off your order!  Just enter the code "christmas" at checkout.

So are you ready to win?

Front Porch Candle Co will give 2 winners a six pack of their Gourmet Ice Cream Scoop Tarts with Sprinkles!  Scents and colors are winner's choice!
