Thanks all for entering this great giveaway!
========================================

I love candles! All different kinds of scents and shapes and colors. Just ask my husband, he will confirm this.
Actually, don't ask him cause I love candles so much it drives him crazy sometimes. 
I was very happy when Jill asked me to test one of her Gold Canyon candles.

You want to know what makes Gold Canyon candles outstanding?
  1. Multiple wicks~helps all the wax burn evenly, don't have a jar of wax leftover @ the end
  2. Non-burning wax (huge! esp.for those of us with kids)
  3. Most fragranced candles
Gold Canyon was started so that the owners, Curt & Karen could work from home and raise their new family, which began with the adoption of their daughter Whitney and now includes 4 kids. This business gives so many Moms opportunities to work from home & stay with their families. In addition because kids are so important & special to the mission of the company, they started a foundation (www.prayerchild.org) for kids. A % of all the proceeds goes towards the foundation as do ALL of the proceeds from one of their candle lines, the "candles for Kids" line.

I was send the 17oz Amaretto Creme candle from the Caffè Velluto™ collection.
This candle promises to be sweetly decadent with soothing blends of almond, amaretto and touches of vanilla with fresh whipped cream served in a reusable jar, featuring 3 wicks and a copper colored lid with a coffee bean handle.
I love the scent of the candle and the lid on the jar makes it a more sophisticated candle. 
Yesterday when the candle was burning, Lisa came over and asked me if I was baking cookies, I tell you it smells great, and not just to me!

Oh, there's something else too: I'm not just a candle fan, I'm also a candle holder fan. And I have to admit, there's really only so many candle holders you can have but sometimes it's hard to resist! Do you know that feeling? Gold Canyon candles has some great candle holders and I'm in love with the iron votive centerpiece, very nice!

There's so many Items to choose from, there really is a candle for everybody's taste/choice. 

One that really looks interesting to me (cause I've never heard of this one before) is the fire starter. 
These firestarters make your fires burn a little more fragrantly.
I love the smell of a fireplace and burning wood, so not sure how this would affect this and make it even smell better.

Gold Canyon doesn't only have lots of candles to choose from, they have items for the body and home too.
I love the idea of the footed square pod warmer with the scent of a pure linen pod. I just love the scent of freshly washed clothes, too bad I have so many loads of washing with 3 kids!

Jill has very generously offered to give away a winner's choice between the Vanilla Latte, 26oz Orange blossom or 26oz Pomegranate!
This giveaway is open to US and Canada!
For a chance to win this candle, head on over to Gold Canyon, browse around and tell me your favorite (not mentioned in the review)

I Love the 14 oz. Jasmine Lime Citronella
A unique combination of sweet floral and tangy citrus, this citronella candle will have your guests searching for your night-blooming jasmine plant. Contains citronella to help repel insects. We spend a lot of time outside!!! This would be perfect!!
