{ one of the prizes: delicate rose earrings }

Who doesn’t love to enter a fun contest once in a while? I certainly do! But this time the table is turned… I will be hosting the contest for all of you! Well, make that we will be hosting! My sister, Catherine (Youtube and blog), who I interviewed yesterday, and I decided to make a collaboration contest and give away four awesome prizes to two lucky winners! Also, we know how entering contests can be difficult and confusing at times, so we made our rules easy to understand. So why not scroll down and check out the fun prizes you might be receiving?

Prizes
The first place winner will be able to choose one item from each group. The second place winner will receive the remaining two items.
Group A:
{ silk summer scarf with a white fabric rose brooch }

{ fabric rose brooch }

Silky Summer Scarf + Fabric Rose–  I went to my serger for the first giveaway prize. This lightweight, silky scarf in navy was created by using the rolled hem setting. You can adorn this scarf with your white fabric rose brooch and maybe even use them together as a fun sash. Dressing up a plain white tee has never been easier!

{ one dozen crocheted roses }

One Dozen Crocheted Roses – As most of you know already, I enjoy crocheting, especially delicate thread projects. For the giveaway I crocheted 12 intricate roses for you–6 in rose red and 6 in soft pink. There are so many different ways to use these! Applique the roses to dresses, blouses, sweaters, skirts, hats, shoes, and baby clothing or use the roses in jewelry making, card making, scrapbooking, or your crochet and knitting projects.

Group B:
{ delicate rose earrings }

Delicate Rose Earrings – Using an extra, small crochet hook, I made two dainty roses for Catherine, who was able to turn them into earrings. These silver earrings will add that special sparkle to any outfit!

{ rosy chain bracelet }

Rosy Chain Bracelet – Who wouldn’t want a garland of roses around their wrist?!  Using delicate little seed beads, Catherine stitched this beaded bracelet the perfect length for any wrist!
