Purex Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets Reveiw and Giveaway

  
As a Purex Insider I get the opportunity to try new products that are released from companies you already love and purchase from.
I've recently tried out a new Purex product!
I was so excited to receive their
New Improved Purex Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets
with improved  3X the fragrance formula!
Exactly what does the 3X mean?
It means not only have they improved the formula to include 3 times the amount of fragrance which makes their scent last 3 times longer than their old Fabric Softener Sheets.
 The new Sheets also have more Static Cling Reduction
which repels not only lint BUT repels Pet Hair too!
From a home with 3 cats and 2 dogs.....
Can I get a Woo Hoo?!! 

Available in 2 scents:

Mountain Breeze

Sweet Lavender

I received the Mountain Breeze to test.


Boy did it smell great after sitting in the mailbox in the hot Sun!
But it smelled just as great the next morning when I started my laundry. We've had such hot temperatures here lately I had been hanging my laundry on the line outside to try to compensate for using the Air Conditioner.
BUT now I had a real reason not to have to go out and hang that laundry! I mean I just had to try out these new fab dryer sheets!
My laundry came out smelling so fresh and feeling so soft.
The scent was most pleasant.
Now I know some of you have allergies or prefer a no fragrance sheet and these scents can cause issues.
But for those of us who l♥ve fragrance (the more the better)
 these are the bomb!
If you prefer a lighter milder scent you could always
cut these in half or even quarters.
The New Improved Purex Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets
have more uses than just in the dryer.
Try them in your gym shoes, under the seat in your car,
in your linen closet, tucked in the cushions of your sofa,
anywhere you'd like a scent of freshness!
I even put one up in with the new AC filter
and a quarter of one in my vacuum cleaner.
As I vacuumed throughout the house I spread
a lovely scent instead of that vacuum cleaner smell.
Now you know what those sweet people at Purex did?
They sent along 3 coupons for a free box of Purex Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets to pass on to you!
So here we go!

The Fairy Walk

This is something I've been working on for a couple years...
yes I'm slow at times to finish a project, but eventually I will!
The sign was an old wood arrow I found at the farm,
let's see, probably about 3-4 yrs. ago.
I knew what I wanted to do with it,
it just took time ;)

 This path is actually the one that leads to
the Tortoise's Summer pen.
But since it's the most shaded area I have, I
knew I wanted my Fairy Gardens there.
 All along this path there are hints of Fairyland here and there.
I made this Fairy Door out of scrap wood, added a tiny hinge, door knob, and a key shaped hole ''peep hole''.
An old brass footing I found at a sale years ago finally found a home on the peak of the roof.
A large ceramic Fairy stands along the side of the walk.

A cracked birdbath becomes a mini Fairy Garden.
The metal mesh arch was removed from
one of my Halloween projects
and made for a grand Sedum covered Arbor.
A Gnome guards the entrance,
while the Fairies frolic.
A ladder made from Willow branches
helps the Fairies up into their birdhouse home.
A crackle globe from a broken garden light
 adds mystique as a ''crystal ball''.
The flat marble pathway are leftovers from B&T's Wedding.
The ''beach'' is also sand leftover from the Wedding.
The ''furniture'' comes from a Birthday cake
that was given to Cody and I. 
A little rabbit from an Easter long passed, works the garden.
One of the Fairies sit by the ''pool'',
while another naps under a couple of ''toadstools''
 I made from old bowls and vases.

Yes, I know I've mixed quite a few different groups here:
Gnomes, Fairies, and a crystal ball?

Well, that's just the way I like it.
It shows we all can coexist and be happy

Happy Gardening!!

Something New

For one of B&T's 2nd Anniversary Gifts I made this candle.
My first attempt at a craft like this and I decide it's for a gift!
Not soo smart.......
Sorry, no before or during photos :/ I get too excited and forget...
you should know that by now!! LOL

I purchased a plain cream colored vanilla candle.
Took one of their wedding photos and
converted it to sepia with Paint Shop.
I then cut a piece of tissue paper to the same size
as a sheet of printer paper and
taped them together on the edges.
I have two printers:
a old small one that only prints black and white
and my big ol'  HP that does everything but take the trash out.
The HP didn't like the way the paper felt and jammed every time!
But my little printer that could, went on and
performed her best for me.
I used my embossing gun (a gift from B&T for Christmas)
to melt the tissue into the wax.
A little vintage ecru trim and I was done.
I thought it turned out well,
they did too



Christmas In July
