Countdown to Christmas: KC Etsy Team's Great Giveaway! WEEK TWELVE: Win a LIP EMBELLISHMENT GIFT SET from For Strange Women!


WEEK TWELVE: Win a Lip Embellishment Gift Set from Jill McKeever at For Strange Women! This is a set of 4 natural and nourishing lip balms in .25 oz sliding tins. These are full of foresty goodness and made with plant materials instead of synthetic flavors, colors, and fillers. Pine Cone, Clove, Poison Ivy, and Rosewood lip embellishments are nested inside a moss and flower petal-filled gift box, wrapped with ribbon. The gift box is made from 100% recycled materials, of which 75% is Post-Consumer Waste.

Says Jill, "I started creating with essential oils when I was 17, nearly 10 years ago. I have always made strange items for friends and family, but just this year decided to start an Etsy shop." Jill credits the forest, music, natural healing, and her animal friends for inspiration. "The earth. Yesteryear. The medium and plant materials that I have to work. These all inspire me as well."

"My favorite item is Ava's Sacred Vial. It is customized and has a unique look and meaning for each person. I am always intrigued when I get the message for what the customer wants in their vial. One person wanted empty ones and I just couldn't stand not knowing what they planned to put inside!" laughs Jill.

TO ENTER THIS CONTEST AND WIN the Lip Embellishment Gift Set, simply visit Jill's Etsy Shop forstrangewomen.etsy.com and choose your favorite item in the shop, then post a comment about your favorite item here. BE SURE TO INCLUDE contact information (your e-mail) in your post, so we can notify you if you win.

Well, it's hard not to <3 everything in her shop, but the thing that has my attention most is The Amethyst necklace. It is officially on my wishlist ... that is just a powerful gorgeous piece.

to pick just one thing from your shop is torture, but i will if i must. my current obsession is the moss + ivy oil, when i wear it, i feel like i'm suspended in time. jill intertwines nature, lushness and earthiness, which i adore...there's nothing like it.

I have been dying to try the clove lip balm. When I first saw it, I looked and looked for a single description because it was so intriguing. What a treat to have an opportunity to win the lip balms!

Everything in her shop is so fascinating, it's difficult to choose just one thing to be my fav! I'd have to say that the Moss and Ivy perfume immediately caught my attention. How very intriguing.

Hmm...picking a favorite is really hard but I think I have to go with her Cleopatra perfume; it smells so good! The first time I put it on, I must have been smelling my wrists every thirty seconds! =)

I am totally intrigued by the moss & ivy meditation/perfume oil. Sounds lovely. And, I have been scared of Patchouli before, so trying 'Sweet Androgyny' would also be a great idea. :)

Thanks!
