    I saw your comment on the Funky Junky “How to Build a Dream Job” posting and came up with an idea. I decided to visit each person who commented on that particular posting because we are all likely facing similar situations. If each of us do that for each other and then return regularly to the sites we especially like, we can help each other build up our readership. You can find these comments of the Funky Junk Interiors post here: funkyjunkinteriors.net/2014/02/how-to-build-a-dream-job-while-you-work-a-day-job.html.

    For the record, Betsy Skagen of PaperCalliope.com came up with this fabulous idea and she would be eternally grateful if you would keep this credit in and more importantly, visit her blog at PaperCalliope.com.

    If you want to participate in hopping to these blogs, just copy this text, visit the sites of those who commented, then paste the text and add your own signature and web site to the bottom. However, please be respectful and take the time to actually look around each person’s blog. Just like you, they put a lot of hard work into it.

    Have a creative day!

    P.S. Your outside picture looks a lot like it here in Minnesota. Way too much snow and cold. 🙂 Your blog is thoroughly advanced and I welcome any tips you can offer so I can eventually get enough readers and then start finding sponsors.

    Okay. We are having an UNUSUAL amount of snow. However, now I am realizing that I have NOTHING to complain about. And I will now be grateful for not having negative windchill.

    Oh my gosh… When will the snow STOP?!? Going crazy… But your scented wood air fresheners are making me want to get crafty (because I’m not crafty at all so this is getting crafty for me) and make some too! Your photos are looking mighty fine these days, lady… Even with all that white crap in the background!

    But of course!! Wood absorbs…and it can make pretty neat decor, too. I wonder why I haven’t seen this done before? Great idea!! I think I’ll have to try this.

    This is great!! I kind of figured this out by accident too, and I want to try it in my closet. I love the small cubes you used.

    Can you paint the wood then apply scented oil to the wood or could you add scented oil to the paint

    A great place to buy fragrance oils is wellington fragrance. I buy from them often, they have perfume grade, manufacturer grade, body oil grade, essential oils, diffuser oils, you name it! I highly recommend them.Tell them Jude sent you 🙂 they are wholesale and I do not get paid for anything, just my honest opinion. They have so many to choose from, too!

    This idea was brilliant! I used mint extract and needless to say my living room now smells minty fresh 🙂 Although my local store doesn’t sell wood blocks, so I had to use craft sticks. But still, amazing idea!!

    When you made these, did the oil dry on the wood before you used them? Or did you start using them when still wet?

    Just wondering if you could maybe stamp on them and bling them up a bit! Intersting concept tho! I can really put some of those old Sizzex dies to work now!

    I love the minimalist look of the wooden cubes! The reed diffusers never really fit my taste, and in my opinion didn’t put off enough scent, but for a bathroom the bath and body works plug in was so overbearing (too little/too much, what can you do?). And this was the perfect fit! I just pull the wick out of the BBW oil refill, soaked them in that and they were good to go. Way more cost effective than plug ins too, you only need a little oil to soak them in and it lasted almost two months!
    Thanks for the idea!

    I’ve been doing this since 2007. It all started with a wooden paw print air freshener for our truck that I bought at walmart. (It smelled like apple spice). I bought a new truck in Oct 2007 and wanted it to smell like home, since I traveled so much. Well, the scent faded so I’ve been rescenting it ever since. Eight years later! Even in a new truck. We rescue and spend our lives around animals so I’m never throwing out our paw print hanging behind (from, but tied very tight where it doesn’t dangle) the rear view mirror.

    So nice and really creative ! Just an idea, you could try sticking a small magnet behind the shape and use it as a fridge decoration and a kitchen air freshener.

I love your comments!
