Holiday Event, Week 3–Free Book, Soundtrack Game, and Shine & Shimmer Soap Craft!

Hey guys!

It’s the third week of my 2019 Holiday Event! Every Friday afternoon from now until the end of December, I will be posting new events. We have a lot going on right now! Let’s get right to it.

The winner of the Cup of Holiday Happiness giveaway is D. S. from Facebook! She won a $10 Starbucks card and a free book! Thank you to everyone who entered!


Shine & Shimmer Sale and Soap with Me!

Shine and Shimmer will be on sale for $.99 today through the 21st!

In the book, Riley learns how to make soap. We’ll be making Rustic Orange Rebatch Soap here on the blog next Friday! I like to buy my soaping supplies from Brambleberry, but you can order from Hobby Lobby, Amazon, or wherever you like.

If you’d like to soap with me, you’ll need:

  • 3 lbs Grated Rebatch Soap
  • 10″ Silicone Soap Mold (A bread pan will work well too, just make sure you line it with freezer paper. You might need a few other little plastic containers in case you have extra soap.)
  • 1 TBSP Dried, Grated Orange or Lemon Peel
  • 1.2 oz Orange Essential Oil (measured by weight)
  • Distilled water
  • Slow cooker
  • Large Spoon

This orange soap makes great Christmas gifts, and since we’re making rebatch, you don’t have to worry about working with lye! This is a great intro to soaping! I hope you’ll join me next week!


Find the Theme Song!

Just the Essentials is free on Amazon tomorrow (Nov 16th) for one day only!

Have you checked out the new Soundtrack section on my website yet? Every time I publish a book, I link a song that I think would be perfect in the end credits if the book were a movie! 

Just the Essentials has been a tricky one. I have yet to find the perfect song. This week, your mission is to find the book’s theme song.

Post your favorites on my Facebook page. (I’ll pin a post to the top of the page, so you can put your choices in the comment section.) Any type of music is just fine, but let’s keep the choices clean!

The book will be free tomorrow, so make sure you pick it up! I can’t wait to listen to your song choices!
