pay it forward giveaway

Still crankin' out those patterns! (Excuse me as I wipe the sweat from my brow ... phew!) In the meantime, sign up for my new mailing list in the side bar to get notified when the patterns go on sale. Isn't that chipmunk a dapper little guy?

Here's some fun news - it's my turn to pay it forward! A few days ago, I was notified by kwoozy that I had been picked in her pay it forward drawing. Here are the details if you care to play along:

"I will send a handmade gift to a random person who leaves a comment on my blog requesting to join this Pay It Forward exchange.

I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise!

The only thing you haveif you like to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog."
Are you in? I'm stoked about sending a special something to the lucky reader! Comment fingers ready? 3,2,1 ... Go! Comments will close the next time I post.

xo,
Meg

Meg,
As I've said in previous posts, I am very excited that you will be offering patterns for sale. I am sure you have already figured out all your marketing details. However, just in case, I wanted to let you know about the website www.youcanmakethis.com. I don't know anything about the profit margin of marketing your patterns there versus yourself. However, it is a pretty cool site so if you didn't already know about it, I thought I'd pass the link along. Best of luck with the patterns. Can't wait until they are ready.

Paying it forward sounds like a good idea.

Your patterns will be great too, I'm sure.

(I always have a bad conscience for entering draws as this because I'm living in Germany...)
