First of all, my thoughts, heart, and prayers are with every single person who was affected by Superstorm Sandy and her aftermath. This massive storm affected family in Virginia all the way up to here and beyond.
I apologize for not getting the BFTE eyeshadow swatches posted yesterday. I completely forgot!
Secondly, I hope that you all who celebrate have a wonderful Halloween and/or Samhain! It's another grey, chill day here, but that's not going to stop me from anything! :)
Samhain's Sirens took a break for the past couple of days, not only to batten down the hatches from Sandy, but to focus their energies on all of those affected by the storm. They're catching up today with two giveaways, both of which I'm sharing here!
The first giveaway I'm sharing is a beautiful, hand-crafted handfasting cord from Confessions of a Modern Witch.
Trevor and I have been married for nearly four years, but our wedding was a very simple, intimate civil event where only a few of our friends and some of Trevor's family could attend as it was a weekday morning. We had intended upon having a bigger, more festive outdoor event in the spring, but that never happened. I had to leave Canada then. I didn't get back here until December 2010, we didn't have much money through 2011, and we'd planned for this past spring but then Trevor was fired from his job!! By the time he secured a new job in July, we had debt to pay off, and none of my family in Virginia could come. And my mother has been back and forth from the hospital to the rehab centre after various complications since having triple-bypass surgery.
So we're shooting for spring 2013 as our celebration date. We were going to do something like have a unity candle, but I think a handfasting would further cement our relationship and vows toward one another. I love the bright, rich colours in this cord. Our celebration will also be full of vivid colours :)

The second giveaway is a $35 gift certificate to East Coast Craft & Curio, owned by a fabulous Canadian lady by the name of Tess. I think that if I won this, I would snag this: Celestial Bangle Bracelet.
Remember, each entry in these giveaways is good for an entry into the Grand Prize Giveaway, worth over $400!!
