2nd Blogiversary Bash

Two Purple Couches 2nd Blogiversary #blogiversary #giveaways #twopurplecouches That’s right, folks! Two Purple Couches is two!! And this is a pretty special celebration, because I have a fan-freaking-tastic giveaway for you! Remember how you used to get goodie bags at your friends’ parties when you were a kid? Well, this is like a super-awesome adult goodie bag, chock full of some of my most favorite things!

So, are you ready to parrrrrrrr-tayyy?

Because it’s the Two Purple Couches 2nd Blogiversary Bash!

I won’t start by taking you a trip down Memory Lane. Because frankly, no one wants to see those early posts. The posts were sporadic. The photos were grainy and dark. The topics were “meh”. And I hadn’t really found my voice or my groove yet, but I knew, above all things, that I wanted to be part of the blogging community.

Because you guys absolutely ROCK MY SOCKS! Seriously.

You come here every week or even every day to see what sort of nonsense I’ve been up to, like hoarding old cereal boxes for crafting, listening to me babble about my favorite stores, or even watching me do the boring-but-necessary stuff like organizing my linen closet.

You cheer me on, lift me up, make me laugh, even bring a tear to my eye with your sweet comments.

You guys. I went part-time for you!

But seriously. I LOVE being here in Blogland, gathering inspiration, making new friends (around the country and the world!), and having a creative outlet to share my passions. Because it’s just damn fun!

So to THANK YOU for being awesome, I’ve got a giveaway for you. Not just a giveaway but a GIVEAWAY. Chock full of some of my most favorite things, from my most favorite artists & makers. Art prints, jewelry, all kinds of goodies! This “goodie bag” is a mix of items I’ve collected or made myself, and items some of my favorite artists have generously offered up for me to give away. (See, it pays to ask! You never know who’s going to say yes!).

First up, the gracious and incredible Emilie from Flourish & Hope is offering up her one of beautiful “Home Sweet Home” prints, the same one that stands proudly in my entryway! I love Emilie’s work, from her prints to her stationary, her aesthetic and her voice come through in it all in a unique way.

Next up, the amazing team behind Kluster jewelry is offering up this gorgeous Peacock bracelet in Turquoise Magnesite! I can’t help but drool over each and every piece in their shop. I just can’t get enough of their bright, fun colors and bold combinations. I could seriously design a room around their jewelry!

    Eeeek! So thrilled for you hitting 2 years, Emily! Isn’t it a relief to know that we’re NOT the same bloggers we were when we just started off? That we HAVE learned a thing or two and grown in leaps and bounds? Ha ha, I feel the same way when I re-read those early posts. But you’re doing great work here, Emily. I never fail to be inspired, and I know the same is true for all those who hap upon this magical pocket of creativity here in blogland. Wishing all the best for you, friend, as you enter year 3. Know that I’m in your corner, cheering you on as you march on toward your dreams! P.S. Thanks for the fab-u-lous giveaway! Or rather, GIVEAWAY!

      Lauren, thank you so, so much for being such a dear and supportive friend. Not just here in fabulous ole Blogland, but in Real Life 😀 I certainly wouldn’t have gotten where I am today without the support of this amazing blogging community and all the friends I’ve made through it!

    OH MY GOSH! I am so excited for you!!!! So I am a bad friend – I totally entered your contest and didn’t leave a comment right away. Blame it on the food poisoning this week! Anyway, congrats on another year of awesomeness. I for one, cannot tell you how happy and glad and amazed I am that our blogging worlds have collided! You are a talented and genuinely awesome person, and I wish you many many many more happy blogging years! I just know that your hard work and talent will continue to pay off for a long while!

    Sending you mad love from Canada!
