Are you all excited? Yes! The Tea Rose Home 3rd bloggaversary's giveaway for the first week is a "Girls World" signed by Jennifer Paganelli! The book contains 21 sewing projects to make for little girls, but I think there are things that are for big girls too.:) I have a copy of my own that I bought, but it is not signed... Whoever wins the beautiful book, I will envy you!
Let me tell you a little bit about Jennifer and Sis Boom Fabrics...
Back in May I had an opportunity to meet Jennifer at the market and bloggers meet up. First of all, she was such a nice person. When you meet famous designers it is a little intimidating, but Jennifer had this presence about her that is very warm and sincere, I was able to say hi and took some pictures with her.
There are so many reasons why I love her Sis Boom Fabrics. I love her use of colors. Her fabric lines are very modern yet have a vintage and traditional feel too. I read somewhere that she uses tag sales, flea markets and European sources as a starting point to create her design. No wonder I love her art work so much, they are a mix of many things I love!
I think it was a couple summers ago, that I first "Met" one of her fabrics. It was Nelly from Honey Child collection. I bought a couple yards, and went home that day thinking that I was going to make a top for summer. I just have a hard time cutting in to beautiful fabric, but I am really motivated to sew something pretty.
When you go to her site, you will be greeted by gorgeous pictures (can you imagine how I was glue to computer screen oohing and awing her site?). They just take you to a different place.
Also, on her blog, she will share the latest updates and other fun things. Also, on the left sidebar there are links to shops where you can purchase her fabrics and patterns. One of the things I have been keeping an eye on is her laminates; there are so many things I want to make with them!
Jennifer, thank you so much for helping me to make this anniversary giveaway so special! :)
