Maybe Matilda: 500 Sales Pattern Giveaway!

500 Sales Pattern Giveaway!

You'll never guess my big news.
(Actually, if you read the title of this post, you're pretty well-equipped to make a very solid guess.)

Tonight, I had my 500th sale in my Etsy shop!

Insane, right?! I can't quite believe it, but I'd like to take this opportunity to make an Academy Awards-style speech and thank my little model, Forrest, for making anything look fantastic, Joann's for taking all my money, and yooouuuuuu for shopping with me! Having my little shop has been such a fun creative outlet for me, and I've loved watching it grow, improving my work, pushing myself to try new things, and making new friends with customers and other sellers in the process.

So as a big fat fuzzy thank you for helping me and my shop, I'm doing a spur-of-the-moment giveaway!

This one's going to be for my fellow hookers (I never get tired of that old joke)--I'm going to pick 3 winners who will each get to choose 3 patterns from my shop! (I know, you'd rather just have me make it for you, right? Sorry, but this girl is making a cross-country move next week . . . so for now, it's just patterns) 3 winners, guys! That ups your chances of winning by, like, a bazillion percent (and no, I did not take statistics in college, why do you ask?)!

Which do you want to make? 




Want to win? Here's how!
(each of these is ONE entry . . . so leave a separate comment for each entry method you do and make sure I have a way to get in touch with you, either by enabling your email on your google profile or leaving an email address in your comment!)
 
1) Head over to my shop and tell me which pattern is your favorite!
2) Become (or already be) a follower of this blog! 
3) Like (or already like) my facebook page!
4) Tweet, facebook, or blog about this giveaway (and leave a link in your comment . . . one entry each!)

That's it!
Random.org will pick a winner for me on . . . let's say . . . Monday, June 13th. 
Have fun entering while I do my little 500 sales happy dance!

  1. Everybody hunker down, Rachel broke out the MS paint in her blog! I was wondering when this day would come. I love your MS paint creations. I would suggest that you make more.

  2. Also, ahem, you are only thanking Forrest as your model? The current face of Maybe Matilda on Etsy (in that little picture thing on the left) doesn't get a thank you??
