2 Year Blogiversary Giveaway

* * Giveaway Closed * *

Yesterday, July 16th, was officially the two year blogiversary for 
The Enchanting Rose.
I'm not sure if I can put into words the amount of joy and pleasure
I have had and continue to have with this blog.
I have learned that blogging is not just about "me" and my ideas,
but it's about YOU, all of you, dear friends.
Without you and your encouragement this blog would not be in existence.

Each and every one of you put a smile on my face
with your precious comments and sweet emails.
I have met so many incredible people and friends through blogging
and I cherish so many of you.
Your friendship, your support, your kindness, and your love
is what makes blogging a beautiful journey
and it's what makes me continue on.
I love blogging because of all of YOU :)

Thank you, my dear, sweet friends, for being there cheering this blog on.
Thank you for being honest and kind.
Thank you for being a blessed encouragement to me.
And thank you for not only supporting The Enchanting Rose, but for also supporting me.
Each and every one of you is a blessing, a gift, and a treasure.
I thank our Heavenly Father for allowing me to meet so many dear ladies.

And now lets have a giveaway. . .or two. . .or three. . .
since it is you that has helped this blog grow and blossom into what it is today :)

All you have to do is. . .

1. Be or become a follower of The Enchanting Rose

about The Enchanting Rose blog-
whether it's Sunday's posts, recipes, crafts, sewing projects, tea cup exchanges, etc.
** I have changed my comment setting 
so that those who follow by email can comment **

That's it!
Be a follower and leave a comment :)
You will have a chance at winning one of the three giveaways
and I'm sure you would like to know what you might win.

Lets take a look. . .

Winner # 1 will receive a handmade quilted tote bag,
a decorated vase, and a pretty embellished hand towel.


Winner #2 will received an embroidery hoop organizer that is perfect for holding light papers,
a decorated vase, and a lovely hanging pillow.


Winner #3 will receive a burlap table mat,
an embellished hand towel, and a sweet pin cushion made from a Mason jar.

Jazzmin said...

Oh dear friend, how kind and generous you are to share your creations of beauty with us. Congratulations on your 2 year blogiversary! I am so thankful that you decided to start your blog 2 years ago so that I had the joyful blessing of meeting you and having a true sister and friend in the Lord in you. You have blessed my heart, my thoughts, and my life in so many ways through your friendship and the beautiful crafts, photographs, and faithfulness that you share. I am so glad that your readers have brought you joy, but it has been you sweet friend who has brought a smile to my face and my day more times that I can count. I am so grateful for you. As far as what my favorite part of your blog is, can I choose 3-way tie between Sunday posts, recipes, and sewing projects? If I have to choose one, I believe it would be your Sunday posts because you have a gift for strengthening my faith in ways that awaken me to the qualities of our precious Savior in ways I need to be reminded of.

Love and hugs to you, precious friend!

Hi Stephanie, my daughter loves the hanging pillow so much (the one that I won in this giveaway) that she wanted to make one. Did you have a tutorial for that in your blog? If you don't, that's okay, just wondering...
