So, it is finally here! The details for Silhouette's Black Friday Promo! The promo will run from Black Friday through the 28th. When you use their promo code BLACK at the checkout you will receive 30% off, but here is the kick, they are offering Tea Rose Home readers an additional 10% off when you use my unique promo code "TEAROSE" at checkout! That is 40% off!

BUT, you won’t find the Silhouette CAMEO in stock on the regular page. There is a secret page you need to go to here and you will need my unique discount code; TEAROSE at the checkout.

Here are some other amazing stuff;

The CAMEO (of course),

Starter Kits for $28 (normally $39.99),

New totes for $70 (normally $99.99);

New designer software;

50¢ Shapes;

The 50¢ shape sale is back in the Silhouette Online Store. Over 19,000 designs (including fonts and printable patterns) will be just 50¢ ea. from Friday, Nov. 25 through Monday, Nov. 28. Whether you have a subscription to the Online Store or just like to dabble every once in a while, you'll get more for your money this Black Friday through Cyber Monday from the comfort of your own home. And to make the deal even sweeter, there will be new designs added to the store on Friday, Saturday, and Monday, so come back each day to find out what's new.

Best of all you don't have to wait in any lines or camp out in a tent to get these amazing deals. Just be sure to visit before the end of the day on Nov. 28 (MST) and use the promo code BLACK during checkout to save 30% off your entire order*.

* Offer excludes Silhouette CAMEO™, download cards, and gift cards. Promotion valid 11/25/2011 12:00 AM through 11/28/2011 11:59 PM only at 30% off sale only includes physical products purchased at while supplies last.

Ok, there has been some confusion going on here (I was bit confused as well). The people from Silhouette sent me an email to clarify some details of the black Friday sale better;

When your readers enter your unique promo code they will get a 40% discount off everything in the Silhouette online store (except the CAMEO, subscriptions, download cards, and gift cards)

The CAMEO will not be found in the regular online store but only on our ‘secret’ Black Friday page:

Your unique promo code will allow your people to get a nice discount on their CAMEO (note: the CAMEO is not 40 percent off but will be discounted)

Finally, our Black Friday supply of CAMEOs will sell out so make sure your followers know this!

The Black Friday Sale begins at 12:01 (MST) on Friday the 25th. Codes will be valid through the 28th.

All shapes will be half off.

I hope this make better sense... happy shopping!

ONA Review/Giveaway Post

Before I start to tell you how awesome the Roma is, let me tell you how I fell in love with some of their products...

Take a look at them, those are camera bags! Aren't they so stylish?

I especially LOVE these...

(Katie, if you ever need somebody to review those beautiful bags, I am here for you! :) )

Well, usually before I write a review post, I always try to read and study the company I am representing. I went to their web site, and read some things and I went "Yes! I know exactly what you are talking about!"

Here is the part that I soo totally agree with written by Tracy, founder of ONA;

"I love photography. There's something truly magical about taking a photo that tells a story and captures the essence of a moment in time. So I carry my SLR camera everywhere. On dreamy vacations. To Sunday brunch with friends. To family gatherings and trips to the park. But I loathed carrying a camera bag that was clunky and distracting. On occasion, to avoid looking like a tourist, I even tried stuffing my camera into a stylish non-camera bag, wrapping it in scarves or t-shirts and hoping it wouldn’t come in contact with my other stuff. Inevitably, it did. And my camera ended up with the nicks and scratches to prove it..."

When I bought my DSLR, it was a packaged deal, so it came with the bag. I thought it was really neat to protect my camera, but soon I found that I didn’t like my bag. It is bulky, and it speaks loudly "I AM A CAMERA BAG!" I don't like that.

The bags created by ONA are true to their philosophy... camera bags should be discreet, stylish and functional.

I was given the chance to use one of their products Roma.

It is a camera insert, and boy I LOVE this already. A lot of the time, I don't want to take the whole bulky camera bag wherever I go. Roma is not going to be a replacement for the camera bag with ALL my lenses and accessories, but I was able to pack my DSLR and small lens and put that into my other bag that I wanted to carry that day. It didn't only serve as a camera insert, because of the five exterior pockets; it helped me organize my other stuff in the bag.

It is well made, very functional... and the best part of is, I am given the chance to do a giveaway for my readers! If you are the one lucky winner, you will understand why I was so excited about this product.

Ok, here are the rules to enter:

1. Head over to ONA and browse for a while and come back here and tell us your most favorite product. (1st entry)

2. Become a follower on my main page. (2nd entry)

3. Blog about this giveaway, tweet, become a fan on ONA’s Facebook page. (3rd entry)

I will run the giveaway until Monday the 21st and announce the winner on the 22nd.

Good luck every one!

Shabby Apple Review / Teacher's Pet Skirt

Ahh... I am in love. I have been eyeing this Teacher's Pet skirt ever since their new line Academia came out.

Navy & white is one of my favorite color combinations; I love how the borders get wider towards the bottom and the boxed pleats give more detail to the skirt.

Here are a couple more of my favorites from Academia line;

A+ shirt dress

I always love classy style. I especially like the white collar and 3/4 sleeves. I bet there are many different ways to wear this dress.

And this one... Bookworm. First of all, I love the name "bookworm", since I am always reading something if I am not taking care of my family or sewing. I love the simplicity of it. I love bold colors or patterns but it is always nice to have simple (yet pretty) items such as this. The potential of the clothes is almost limitless with some accessories and shoes you can always dress up or down.

Are you wondering if I had fun with my new skirt? You bet I did!

There were several ways that I thought I can wear this skirt with what I have in my closet. I can wear it with a simple navy t-shirt, the right shade of red might be a fun choice, you can always count on a crisp white shirt, oh, even when you are wearing the same thing, how you accessorize it gives a totally different look to the wardrobe. I am not a fashion expert, but I enjoy thinking about the possibilities.

Well, you have already seen one of the coordinations I did. Here is another one:

All I changed from the first one was the shoes, cardigan and belt. That is all! The first coordination was more of a "good girl" look. I was aiming for a "boutique" look with this one.

I just love this skirt, and with the right coordination and accessories, I can pretty much wear this for three out of the four seasons. Isn't that awesome or what?

Thank you Shabby Apple for this opportunity, I will continue to enjoy the skirt!

Note: When you go to their website to see the picture for this skirt, the bottom of the skirt hit just below the knee of the model. Since I am much shorter it is a little bit lower on me. Also I feel like I could have gone one size smaller, so when you buy, make sure to check their sizing chart. :)

Lily Bird Studio Pattern Giveaway!

I am so excited to hold a giveaway for my new sponsor Lily Bird Studio!

Cecilia is the talented designer for Lily Bird Studio.
Let me show you couple of my favorites...

Pink Dress (12 months to 8 years old)

Katrina Dress... (12 month to 8 years old)

Aren't they adorable?!
She is here today to tell you little bit about her. Take it away Cecilia!

I am Cecilia; I live in Uruguay (my birth country). I am married to my loving and supportive husband and I am mom of a 2.5 years old gorgeous and very active girl :)

In November 2007, 1 month after we got married, we moved to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, because of my husband's new job with the idea of living there for 2 years. While Martin had lived in Malaysia a few years before, it was a totally new and different experience for me, adaptation was difficult at first, but the whole experience was worth it, I enjoyed living in Malaysia and often miss many things from there.

At 3 months after arriving in Malaysia we learned that we were expecting a baby! And in September 2008 our princess Sophia was born, our most challenging experience on that trip on the other side of the world! She is always a challenge and a huge inspiration for all my creations.
In February 2009 we moved to São Paulo, Brazil also because of my husband's job and finally in mid-2010 we moved back to our home country.

I love all handmade things since I was a child, I always loved to make stuff with my hands, make something beautiful out of nothing. My passion in life was always clothing design, I used to spend a lot of time designing party dresses and my mother used to sew some of them for me. As a grown up I learned to sew myself. When my daughter was born I started to design clothes for her, that was when the real passion about sewing began, I got a sewing machine and started to create all kind of things, from toys to clothes and share some of them in my blog, I found a whole world of possibilities in crafting, sewing, painting. Soon I learned sewing patterns drafting so I could share my own experience with other people.

Later I opened an Etsy shop (TheLilyBirdStudio) where I sell sewing pattern for kids clothing, my designs are comfortable yet stylish for little kids and almost all of my products are easy projects for beginners to intermediate sewers.

Thank you Cecilia! I enjoy getting to know you. :)

2. Become followers on my main page. (2nd entry)

3. Blog about this giveaway, tweet, become fan on Facebook. (3rd entry)

Shabby Apple Giveaway!

Hi everyone, are you all so excited for this giveaway?! I am! I love Women's dresses that Shabby Apple offers. They are so modern, stylish and modest! I asked them about their company and here is their answer:

After years of not being able to find stylish dresses that covered enough skin to make you really feel comfortable (without wearing a tank top, cardigan or long slip), owners Emily and CK decided to do something about it. They visited trade shows, marketplaces and designer studios only to discover the problem was not that department stores weren't buying the right dresses, but that designers weren't designing them. Shabby Apple is proud to offer you fantastic dresses that allow you to look fabulous, without having to compromise anything else. A return to what dresses were always meant to be — a one-piece outfit. No need to add tank tops, no cardigans, nothing (except accessories, of course!). Shabby Apple also focuses on helping women worldwide. Through our charitable work with women throughout Asia and Africa, we are able to convert dress sales into lifestyle changes for women and children.

Aren't they great? No wonder I love their dresses. Their motto shines through in their creations. It was really hard for me to pick out one dress to giveaway... but I finally picked this one. Meet Azure Coast!

I won't be able to give these away, but there are some of my favorites...

{Nine to Five} I love the color of green; this dress is a great combination of modern and retro feel. I love it.

{Moon River} This dress reminds me of my forever fashion icon Audrey Hepburn. It is so fashionable, and classy with a hint of sexiness. Beautiful!

{Creamsicle} I couldn't resist the cuteness of this dress! How adorable. :)

Ok, the important part, here is how you enter;

1. Visit their web site and come back and tell me which one was your favorite.(first entry)

2. Go here to like shabby Apple on Facebook. "Liking" them will enable you to get in on special promotions and exclusive discounts. (Second entry)

3. Follow on my home page (3rd entry)

That's not all; Shabby Apple is giving 10% discount to all the Tea Rose Home readers! When you purchase something use coupon code tearosehome10off at check out.
Have fun shopping!

Sponsor Giveaway ~ Sew Chatty ~

Hi everyone! Elizabeth from Sew Chatty is here to do a giveaway for Tea Rose Home readers. She is creative and a very fun person. Can't wait to get to know her a little? Here she is!

Hi there! My mane is Elizabeth and I am the owner of an Etsy shop and blog called Sew Chatty! The shop {} is stocked with my handmade creations and the blog {} is where I "chat" about all kinds of things like sewing and crafting, the happenings of my little family, my shop, everyday life stuff, and how I manage to keep sane in the midst of all the chaos! I am blessed to live in sunny southern CA. I am married to an awesome guy...10 years! And have a sweet little boy who is 6 years old.

I started Sew Chatty in January of 2010. After having just made all of our Christmas gifts to give to friends and family, I had a lot of feedback from people saying I should sell some of my creations. Our budget had been tight with just one income so I thought; hey why not give it a shot! And here I am! The shop has allowed me to work from home and I am pleased to say that it's doing quite well! I am truly learning as I go, but it's been so rewarding and I am loving the opportunity to create. In my shop you'll find lots of handmade things for home, for baby, and just for fun! It is definitely a struggle to balance the business with home and all of the things that make my life so busy, but I am so blessed to be doing what I love. I am coming up with new ideas all the time so check the blog (and the shop) often for what's coming next! You can also follow all the Sew Chatty happenings on Facebook and Twitter. Just click the icons on my homepage!



Thank you Elizabeth! So isn't she awesome? Ok, here are the items that she is giving away...

Wristlet Clutch! I love them, they are small enough to fit in my purse to organize things, and of course, use as a stylish bag.

Rosette Headband! I love her choice of color for this, seems very versatile, and not too overwhelming. I am sure it will spice up your outfit!

Ok, here are the rules for the giveaway;

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)

This giveaway will run from the 10th to midnight the 14th.

Good Luck!
