Featured Artist Friday: (GIVEAWAY!) Meet Candice from Jackson of All Trades!



Welcome to our next installment of...


Featured Artist Friday!

Do we have a giveaway for you!
Today our artist is Candice Jackson, of "Jackson of all Trades" (isn't that the cutest name?) hand-pours her soy candles.
And, not just ANY soy candles. She puts them in vintage tins!


Candice sent me a darling Maxwell House candle so I could take a closer look.
(She took a stab in the dark -pardon the pun!- that I might like this tin - and BOY was she right!)

When you buy a candle, you choose your and your scent.
Since I have allergies, I wanted to take it easy - I went with Warm Vanilla Sugar.
Wow - it's so lovely. Light, gentle - didn't make my nose get all tingly like some commercial products can.
There's 'round 20 scents to choose from. She has unscented, too.

Cute, eh?
They even come with their own book of matches!

Isn't that adorable? Dining Car Coffee.
I can imagine traveling by train, sipping my coffee and seeing a porter heading to the kitchen with a tin like this tucked under his arm. Ooh, and there's a Hazelnut Coffee scent available...and a Cappuccino Brule, too!

How 1950's Mad Men!
I love the little stars over the sailboat and it's declaration..."For Frying Or Stewing!"
(With the Extra Capital Letters Thrown In for Free!) Wouldn't this be cute in your kitchen?
Then you have the tin once the candle is burned away.
Fill it with crayons and it can live in your son's nautical themed bedroom!

Now, I'm not a fan of smoking, but I'll surely condone cuteness!
And, this tin just oozes character!
Maybe fill this one with Apple Jack scent?
Yum. I can picture this in the garage or tool shed.
Fill it with screwdrivers, wrenches, paint brushes, or even your loose screws!

Planning a "Rustic Wedding?"
How about a vintage tin candle burning on each of your reception tables!

Invited to a Spring wedding?
I can tell you this much, I would have swooned over this Bliss candle for a shower gift.


Wow, what a great anniversary present this could be!
(Are you listening, honey?)
Maybe try something lighter for this one - lemon lavender scent or honeysuckle?

Perhaps your home has a Touch of France?
Cute, non?!

Okay I could do this all day, but there are over 60 candles in her shop - and HUNDREDS more tins on her shelves waiting for you! She can match practically any event to a tin - just ask her.

GIVEAWAY!
Yep, Candice is giving away YOUR CHOICE of any candle in her shop!
You pick the tin, you pick the scent (or unscented.)
Don't see the one you are looking for?
Candice has offered to let the winner look at her private catalog of unlisted vintage tins!

TO ENTER:
Simply leave us a comment below telling us which is your favorite candle.
I've given you just a glimpse into her shop
but you'll want to
