I want to thank you for your wonderful ideas. They definitely got the creative juices flowing. Many of the suggestions were mythical realms from novels, which for copyright infringement reasons, I did not want to completely plagiarize. However, one suggestion, Winterfel, one of the kingdoms in the amazing George R.R. Martin fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire, really struck a chord. Combining that with various words for ice crystals, the name Crystafel evolved.
Gifties are forthcoming for Cari (which means you have to visit Bellingham!), Kay and Linda Sue, whose suggestion of Snowman Poop still has me cracking up.

For all my creative friends and supporters, something fun… Come up with a name for my newest Realms scent and win a gift basket. The scent is a subtle white musk that reminds me of winter, ice crystals and making snow angels in piles of powder. If you have ever visited a magical winter place…or imagined such a place…please post a comment with your best one-word name. Please have your entries in by September 28th. Don’t forget to post a way for me to get in touch with you in case your entry wins!
