One Fabulous Year

Today marks the one year date for my business!!!!  (Or I really should say one year ago today, I had my first sale.  🙂  )  It has been quite the year.  I could go on and on about how much I have learned.  How things are so different than I had thought they would be, the ups, the down, etc. etc.  But really I think most would find that a bit on the boring side.  So then, we’ll skip the boring and go straight to the exciting!!!! A bit of  free always excites people – right?

4 gifts – 4 chances to win!!!!

(I had a hard time deciding!)

$50 Gift Certificate to buy wonderful glorious fabrics, patterns and kits in my shop!!!

Fat Quarters of the Earth colorway of Andalucia (my fall favorite) by Patty Young!!!

Adorable Scrumptious Sandi Henderson pattern – Ruffle Pants!!!

Whimsical Fun Woodland Bloom charm pack and pattern from Lila Tueller!!!

Now, is this fun?  or is this fun?!?!?!

How do you enter?

1. Leave a comment on this post to say hello or congratulations or how much you love me.  Ya know, in general, flattery is good!

There are 4 gifts – so I’ll give you 4 chances to increase your odds!

1. Blog about this contest and receive 5 extra entries. (Be sure to let me know!)

2. Add some pictures to my flickr group for 3 extra entries! (not per picture, pictures already there do not count)

3. All purchases between today and Jan 31, 2009 to receive 5 extra entries.

    Just discovered your fabrics, patterens and blog! And discovered that you live about a mile away from me! Love your enthusiasm, drive and honesty about fabric and design – my two favorite things, hobbies and passions! Just moved to this state 4 months ago to return to school after many years away and very jealous (is that the right word?) of your energy in creating admist little and mid-size people’s demands! Being creative is happiness in my book!

    I went into the most amazing fabric store today….Graci Lou’s. They had you fabric and lots of patterns. It was so great and the best thing about it was that they were almost completely sold out of it. I asked when she would be getting more in and she said they were just waiting for the new line to come in. Congratulations. You are AWESOME.
    P.S. I can’t wait to make little Sadie the outfit with the ruffle pants and bell top. Precious!
