May Day, May Day

Well here we are, May 1 already. I have a special fondness for May, since I was born on May 18. I share my birth month with the likes of George Clooney, Roma Downey, Billy Joel, Bono, Emilio Estevez, and Napoleon Bonaparte. I’m in great company!!

May has lots going for it. Fishing and farming get underway here on PEI, birds are nesting, bikes come out, daffodils and tulips appear, deck furniture gets a dusting.
As for me, my next chapter begins, my job as Site Manager for The East Point Lighthouse gets underway, and all my soaping must be finished. (Of course it isn’t.)

So to have a little fun, and to see who’s paying attention, I’m running a special for my birthday. Although I expect many many presents, (insert a laughing emoji here) I’d like to give out a present on my birthday.
For every one of you who have used any one of my Black Rafter SoapWorks products, would you please consider leaving a review for that product on my website? Then, on May 18, I will have an outside party go through the reviews or comments randomly and choose one to receive their gift. I will present that winner with a gift basket of my products valued well over $50.00, beautifully wrapped. Happy birthday to me, and


to you!

  6. Hmmmm…. I’m not sure where to begin!
    I think the bug spray was the first product from Nova that i ever used. And well, it was AMAZING! Worked great on me and my children.
    Then i think i tried the lotion- well let’s just say i haven’t stopped and noticed a big difference in my skin.
    As for the soap, bath bombs, lip gloss, SHAVING BARS, foot scrub, well those are all things i just don’t think i could live without. Next up… I’m trying the candles although i have no doubt those will be a great product as well!

    1. Well Sally, I may blush! Thanks so much for your support! Good luck on my Birthday draw!

  7. I love so many of the products that I made it my go to for gift packages last year: deodorant, bug spray, soap, lip balm etc.. Everyone was happy!
    I had no worries about running out of candles this winter because I had so many made to get me through (I may be covered next year too).
