Let's Party again!


So this is my second time in a Carnival blog party! It's really fun and you should try it! it's a great time to meet new bloggers and win cool prizes! I'm Nydia, the proud mom of Lucas, my almost five-year-old littlw witch, and I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.


My humble giveaway will be this little wooden box hand-painted by myself. It's a black box with a waxing moon with green leaves around it, with a craquelet effect. Inside there will be round little candles and a matchbox with a sweet fairy decoupage decorating it. If you want to win this (international visitors included), just leave a comment telling me your favorite candle scent, until Friday, April 25, at 8pm central time. All the names will be put into the box itself and Lucas will pick up the winner, then I'll post that announcement on Sunday, April 27th. Good luck!



Let's have fun, and don't forget stopping by the Carnival blog's main page for more giveaways!
