winners of the candle giveaway -- everyone wins : )

alOha everyone : )

   So ............... it's time to reveal the WINNERS of our latest candle giveaway !!! In our last blog we asked people to leave a comment telling us a good deed that they had done (or were planning to do) and that comment would act as an entry ticket into our giveaway. We love spreading light into the world (and it's not a totally unselfish act either considering the buzz we get from earning a smile, chuckle, or tears of joy ... we spent 4 months in some pretty poor countries in Asia, and we had to be very careful not to give away all of our honeymoon money, so we'd have bus fare to the airport in Hanoi .. BzzZZzit !!)

  Anyway, we had some very nice comments from caring for kitties to writing letters to nanna, and we said that we were going to pick THREE winners from the bunch to receive one of our beautifuly burning pint size mason jars. There were thirteen people who contributed their good deeds, and we figured that our good deed would be to let EVERYONE WIN : ) That's right - everyone that entered their good deed wins !!

   If you're one of the winners - send us an email @ and we will arrange a gift package to your very door. You'll be asked to confirm your blogger account (just so we know that we're shipping to the right person) and very soon you will have a glowing beacon of beeswax from your friends at Pollen Arts.

  Stay tuned for more to come ... the holidays have got us up late pouring candles and eating raw chocolate by the spoonful, so time for blogging is regrettably slim .. but we'll back as soon as we get through some of these holiday wish lists ; )

  bee good little boys and girls, love, your friends,


Here's the little goodie for your gift bags : )



Pay it Fwd : ) ** Candle Giveaway **

alOha everyone ...

  Been way too long. Grrrr ... So much is happening (mostly involving our craft) and we've been working on this War-and-Peace-length post about a harrowing trip we recently took that has landed us on a brand new planet, and it's so beautiful here .. and the Winnie loves it !!! (but the post isn't done yet, so for now, we'll keep our locale a secret.) All I can say is that we're at a higher elevation (which doesn't say much seeing as though we set sail from sea level : )

   Aaaaaanyway ... since we don't have time to do a proper post, and since we're making so many beeswax candles these days, we figured a quick giveaway blog was in order. (just to let ya'll know we love ya ; )

   But there's an assignment here, friends: As the title pointed to, we're doing a giveaway, but the way you'll buy a ticket to this raffle is to pay a credit into the Play that we call Life: hold the door for someone as you're walking into the post office, send a sweet letter, blow a kiss, share your umbrella, pickup a hitchhiker (we did, the other day ... she was a 60 year old spiritualist named Suki with heavy luggage and a voice like rain) ... lend change for the meter, spread change for the better, just put a smile on someone's face and you're in !!!

    So there you have it, our little butterflies, today's the day to spread color and warmth and happiness into the world. Let us all throw stones into the lake of good karma and watch the sunset dance across the ripples at the turn of a brighter day. Whatever deed you do, just post a comment about it, and in one week's time, we'll pick THREE winners who will receive a very special present from p&j and pollen Arts. And if you're careful not to overlook the return address, you'll also bee one of the few friends to know where we're parking our house these days : )

   twinkle twinkle little stars, love, love,


  Here's the little Cutie that's up for grabs ... it burns so beautifully and isn't even available on our site yet ; )

   Oh .. and check out who came over to our new candle studio last night. He told us that some jolly ol' fellow dressed in red is coming soon for a whole sleigh full ... boy oh boy .. better get bizzee : )
