Link Party 18 and Surprize Giveaway!

First of all I want to say thank you for all of you who left such nice comments and emails about my little girl and about your experiences. Some of you lost your loved ones to cancer or other illnesses and have a special connection with donating hair... I was so touched reading your stories. Sometimes I am worried about this world we live in, but it gives mea hope when I hear other people's acts of kindness and thoughtfulness. Thank you for making my day! (and Rachel was really tickled by all the comments too.)

After I finished Four Shirts Four Ways last week, I started a new projects and I am really enjoying the process. It will be a while until I can share the pictures, but you will be the first ones to see them!

Before I start the link party, I have a surprize giveaway I have been planning... :)(grin)

   

Among the Four Shirt Four Ways, the most popular shirt was the purple one. I am giving away that shirt to a lucky winner! I promise, I only wore it an hour or so to take the pictures, it is in mint condition! The shirt size is XS (loose fitting).


Here are the rules for the giveaway:

1. Leave a comment on this post. (You will get one entry)

2. Become a follower of Tea Rose Home. (you will get a second entry)

3. Face book, tweet, blog (any of them is fine) about this giveaway. (You will get a third entry)

I will run the giveaway until the 7th and post the winner on Monday the 9th. Sound good?

Now, lets start the link party and here are the rules for the link party:

1. Please post something YOU made. It doesn't matter if it is crochet, quilt, clothing, anything would be fine. I want to see it! If you use someone's idea or patterns please give them the rightful credit.

2. Link to your specific post, that way it is easier for everybody to find and read it.

3. Please grab the "Tea Rose Home" grab button, and link back from your post. If you can mention the party in your post or place the button on your side bar, that would be great! I want more people to have a chance to come and show off their creation.





Let's party!

  1. I've been enjoying your tutorials & posts for a while. And I just had to post when I found out about the give-away. =)

    PS - I donated about 12 inches of my hair when I was in high school. I'm amazed by your daughter's maturity.

  19. Can you believe I´ve been so busy with life I never read your post about your daughter´s hair donation? I was moved (as many were). When we bring little angels into this world they teach us things every day don´t they. Sometimes their teachings are moving. My son is like this, beautiful inside and out... giving and selfless. Wonderful gifts they are (that´s the little Yoda I have inside speaking). Big Hug and hello again! Clau
    By the way..I envy all the people that can enter your giveaway! Somtimes I wish I lived a little closer!
