Business Cards

I've been looking online at different business cards..and I there are quite a few options. But I just cant seem to find any that are, well, I don't know..just me I guess.

I did order this one a while back..

And I do really like it, but I'm still on the hunt for the perfect one.

Where did all you lovely people get yours from? If you have some that is. Did you pick an already designed one or design your own?

I do love seeing other peoples business cards, and if I come across any I always want to take one home with me.

A bit like in American Psycho, where they all admire each others cards.

Ooh, and when I get some decent light to photograph in, I have a new make to share!
I made myself a lovely satchel type bag in a gorgeous fabric with squirrels on :)

I hope everyone is getting to enjoy some sunshine, I finally got to see some last week and managed to snap this picture whilst I was in the town.
It was still chilly, but look at that sky, so blue and pretty..

I want to start this post by saying I have no connection to Scentsy, I do not work for them, I just absolutely adore their products!

I was recently introduced to Scentsy (link to the page here) by a friend who knows my love of candles ( read as slight addiction to a well known brand of candle..) and lovely smells. 
I wasn't too sure about trying a new one at first. But she was kind enough to send me a couple of wax blocks of hers for me to smell, so I could see what they were like before I went ahead and bought some. That was more than enough.

They are absolutely gorgeous!

I bought this lovely warmer...

How beautiful is this? I absolutely love the tree on it. I was torn between this one that I bought, and a beautiful owl one. I decided on this one because it is a mid-size warmer because we live in a quite small flat.
Scentsy is a little bit different from a candle. 
How it works, is that you get this warmer (that you actually plug in, I didn't include the cable in the photo because I moved it somewhere clutter free to photograph) and you pop a small cube of wax in the top dish.
It's gradually warmed by a lightbulb that is inside the warmer, and gives off a lovely glow in the evening :)
Another plus for me is that even when the wax is melted, it doesn't get hot, it just gets nicely, as I'm quite clumsy and on a few occasions I have knocked wax on myself from candles, even if I do now, it wont hurt. 

These are the lovely scent blocks. In the front you can see a block of wax that you'd pop into the top of the warmer. The block in the photo is called "Just Breathe" and it smells amazing! I was feeling all stuffed up and I melted this wax block and felt so much better.

The Luna one has to be my favourite one so far though I think.

I'm looking forward to trying my "A Wink And A Smile" one as it smells lovely, and how cute is the name?

Anyway, enough of my Scentsy ramblings. Sorry if you think I'm trying to sell this to you, I'm not, I just wanted to share something lovely with you.
