Band of Bloggers: Volume 12, December 2016

 A full year of fragrant sharing with the Band of Bloggers rounds out 2016. Thank you for supporting the blogger community and taking the time to read and participate in our posts. We will be continuing the Band of Bloggers in 2017 but with some new writers and blogs to follow. Thank you Sunnee and Michelle for this past year of fellowship. We will miss you!

Did you have any favorite wax moments this year? A vendor who went above and beyond? A blend that knocked your socks off? Did you have a RAOK or wax community experience that left you warm and fuzzy? Please share some of your favorite wax moments of 2016 with us. 

I did have a few very sweet RAOK experiences this year with wax, that I treasure. I am really very happy to have been able to participate in the Band of Bloggers and the Fall Fun Series this year. Collaborating with other bloggers built a sense of community and created friendships. Plus it helped me out of the rut of monotony. As far as vendors, Carol from Candles From The Keeping Room exhibited great customer service when one of my orders landed at the wrong house and the lady helped herself to some of Carol's tarts. I enjoyed trying new vendors like Satin Suzie Scents. But most of all I appreciate the friendships that have sprung up with you guys. If sadness or bad times come to roost, it isn't too long before a message or email pops up to check in on me. I cannot begin to tell you how much I value that interaction.

Thank you for an amazing 2016. And I hope you stick around for 2017 <3

  1. It was so fun doing BoB and FFS this year with you and our other fellow bloggers! I feel like our little corner of the internet keeps expanding, and it's awesome!

    Carol really has some top notch customer service! It's so hard to believe that she sells to such a large group of people. It feels like she really cares about and knows each of us on a one-on-one level.

    1. Thanks! I love that you joined us too and I look forward to next year! It does keep expanding and that is incredibly rewarding.

      She does. And you are right. You would never know she catered to hundreds of people who place high volume orders with they was she dotes on each person. I love it.

  2. When you first proposed the Band of Bloggers idea to our original little group, I admit, I didn't understand the point of it. I've come to understand and love the idea of it now! Thank you for starting it, and thank you for putting up with my stubbornness. =)


    1. Aw thanks! I hope I am not too annoying when I get a bee in my bonnet like that. I think it is fun to do things like this to invoke some camaraderie and support each other so that we aren't blogging in a vacuum. Thank you for joining. You are one of my very favorite people. I will always be here for you and thank you for putting up with me too. xoxo

    2. And bloggers NEED to build a community because we're a dying breed.
