Tea Rose Home Two Year Anniversary BIG giveaway!

Hi everyone! I can't believe I have been blogging for two years, today, to be exact. When I first started, I had NO idea what I was doing, well, I still feel that way sometimes. It has been so much fun to share what I have made or am going to make with you all.

Blogging has inspired me to be more creative and to connect with who I am. Because of your nice emails and comments, I feel like I can do more than my ability allows and have finished lots of projects in the past two years.

Thank you so much for your support everyone! :)

I wanted to do something special for my anniversary giveaway.

If you have been reading my blog from the beginning, you will know that I am a BIG fan of Amy Butler. I LOVE all of her stuff, from designs to fabric to patterns. I also read some magazine interviews, and stories of how she started her business and where she is now. She is an inspiration to me and I just admire her work.

Then... I decided to contact Amy Butler Design to see if they can help me with their amazing products to make this anniversary giveaway very special... Call me brave or bold. I know, I know, I am nobody, but I just love her stuff, and I had to try.

And... Guess what... Amy's promotion specialist contacted me and said, they will provide five sewing patterns (one pattern is a new design!) for Tea Rose Home readers!!! I thought I was going to pass out in front of the computer when I received the email!

Aren't they sooo nice? Thank you so much Amy (I am an even bigger fan now), and Mallory for your kindness and generosity!

After you enter the giveaway, go check out their amazing site. They have more patterns available, and free patterns you can download too!

I will share the pictures of the five patterns for the giveaway:

This is her newest pattern, "Honey Bun Poufs". I WANT this! I almost wanted to not tell you about this and make it mine... seriously, but it wouldn’t have been right. So, pretty!!


Cabo Halter


Blue Sky Hat


The Field Bag


The Nappy Bag


They are all so pretty and fun. I have used Amy's patterns before, their instructions are easy to follow and I needless to say that I loved the results.

I will be picking five winners, each person will get one pattern. The giveaway will run until midnight of the 25th and I will be posting the winners on Friday the 27th.

Here are the giveaway rules:

Go check out her website and come back here to leave a comment on this post. (You will get one entry)

2. Become a follower of my blog and show me your beautiful face on my side bar. (Second entry)

3. Blog about this giveaway on your blog (tweet or Facebook is fine too). (Third entry)

Good Luck!!!

I don't know if I'm eligible for this giveaway or not, cause I'm in Indonesia. hmm.. that's far far away isn't it?
