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.
