GPP Street Team - Crusade No. 9 - What's that smell?



The lastest challenge of Michelle Ward's Street Team is titled - "What's that smell". Our challenge is to list what scent we use to get into the 'zone'. The creative zone that is.

I love to burn essential oils. My favourite combination is Lavender and Orange. It is such a sweet and relaxing smell. A perfect combination for creating!! IMO anyway.

In the pic above, I have put my burner on top of my craft desk, but normally it sits on top of my filing cabinet next to my desk. I didn't think it'd be a very exciting pic if I included my boring old metal filing cabinet, so instead I included a pic of my messy old craft desk. LOL. At least you can see the desk at the moment. Sort of cleaned it up for this pic.

  8. This is great; I must try it because I usually burn candles but seeing your incense burner has me intrigued.
