fall bloggy giveaway carnival :: you're my cup of tea

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button


It is once again time for the quarterly bloggy giveaways carnival and I am once again participating. Yes, I am doing another giveaway while one is still going on, and no, I won't forget about those of you who have entered my other one, and yes, you can enter this one as well! Whew, I hope I answered all of your questions!

cute tea cozy

Since I am giving away one of my cute camera straps in the giveaway a couple of posts back, (which by the way, if you haven't entered, you still have time until Wednesday)I have decided to give away this adorable quilted tea cozy for those of you who drink tea. I made this a while back for one of my sewing shows, and since it doesn't match my kitchen, I have never used it. So, it will go to someone who will love it and care for it and cozy up her tea pot with it!

coffee sleeve :: groovy mushrooms

Now if tea is not your "cup of tea", I will happily substitute one of my equally as adorable and "green" coffee sleeves, made to slide over your coffee cup to keep your coffee hot and your hand not, and all those cardboard sleeves out of the garbage. Now you can tell your favorite barista, "Thanks, but I have my own!" You just let me know in your comments which you would prefer, and on Sunday, November 2, I will use a random number generator to decide who wins. I will then notify the winner by email and here on my blog!

And since I work from home to help support my lovely family, please take a look at my shop to see if anything there is "your cup of tea" for your holiday gift giving this year! Give the gift of handmade this season! You won't regret it!

Check out the other great giveaways as well!

It's actually hard for me to choose. I think I'd get much more use out of the tea cozy so that is my pick :)

They are both adorable though - great job on them!

Those are both adorable! I don't have a kettle, though. I'd have to go for the coffee sleeve, I suppose. Hmm - tough choice!!!

By the way, I'm hosting a giveaway at my place, if you'd like to stop by... www.theotherhuse.blogspot.com. It might not be something you want/need, but it would be great for a baby shower gift.

Niki said...

I love the coffee sleeve! Your work is beautiful!

Sarah said...

Hi!

I just found your blog through the Heather Bailey fabric site from the picture of your bath mat . . . anyway, have you ever considered making a glass baby bottle sleeve? A lot of moms are starting to consider glass baby bottles (me included!) and some companies are beginning to make sleeves for them to protect them, but they are all made out of silicone . . . which does help grip, but cute, washable fabric ones would be interesting as well!

Just an idea!

Best,
Sarah

PS - I use Evenflo glass bottles, if you need to find inspiration! :)

Susie, I was on your site and inspired by your love of God and giving back. I would love to know where you got the pattern for the tea cozy if i am not chosen to receive it. God bless you in all you do. digicindy@comcast.net
