De-stress this holiday with Crafters & Co. from Hallmark

If you think your holiday season is stressful, then I have a giveaway for you.  Hallmark is allowing me to review some of their Crafters & Co. candles, mug and soap.  Holiday scents and girly goodies are just what any mom needs during those hectic moments the holidays seem to bring.   
I'm going to pour myself a cup of coffee in my new Crafters & Co. mug from Hallmark and tell you all about my stressful holiday season thus far and it all started with an elf.  Yes, you know it, the infamous elf on the shelf.  We are currently in between houses and while I packed and planned and prepared for everything we could or would possibly need to get us through until the new house is finished, the one thing that never even crossed my mind till a couple of weeks ago Alex, our elf on the shelf.  I set aside boxes to be packed and easily accessed for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas trees, birthdays, snow pants, you name it.  If we would need it for a specific purpose I had it in a box. The one thing I forgot about was the elf.  And Thanksgiving weekend I searched through our 10 x 10 storage unit and came up empty handed.  I know he is in there, but there are too many boxes, stacked too tall to go through them all.

So off to the store I went, to get a new elf only to learn that elves now have elf pets to help them scout for Santa.  Perfect fix right?!?!  I have a back story, I have a reindeer, I even have a note from Santa himself, explaining that Alex is on a secret mission and the reindeer is filling in for him. There's only one problem......Miss MacchiOTTo doesn't like the reindeer and isn't interested in what he does.  It's not that she misses the elf, it's that the reindeer isn't the elf and therefore it's not the same.  All that searching and worrying for nothing.  Luckily Mr. shOTT of Espresso likes to look for the reindeer each morning so I keep playing along in hopes she too will join in the fun.  Until then, I will light one of these candles and try to de-stress until the next holiday fiasco occurs.          
The mistletoe scent brings an "outdoorsy" smell to your home.  This bar of soap would be perfect in your guest bath and the colors of the wrappers are very charming as well.  Perfect to use or give as a gift.
And the red cinnamon bark candle is burning in my kitchen right now.  The copper lid has a beautiful design on the lid and the jar is adorned with a snowflake charm.  Lastly, the mug says, "Friends. Because smiles don't happen all by themselves."  The perfect mug to give to a friend alongside some coffee or tea bags.  Or to keep for yourself to think fondly of your own friends every time you drink out of it.
One lucky latte' drinker will win this 4 piece set of Crafters & Co holiday goodies.  To enter simply click on the rafflecopter link below.  Contest runs December 4 -  10.  Winner will be announced on December 11th.  Winner must be a US resident and will have 48 hours to claim their prize or risk forfeit.  Good Luck!
