You are not going to freakin' believe this!!!

This message just arrived in my email.

"Congratulations!  You entered our drawing for a $250 gift certificate by signing up for our email list in August and you are the winner of the AccuQuilt Gift Certificate."

Oh my gosh!  I'm dyin' here!  This is just too cool!  I don't even have a GO! yet...but I don't care...this is awesome! 


Which brings me to another subject related to accuquilt.  Recently they sent a call out on their Facebook page looking for bloggers interested in receiving a GO! and being a featured blogger. 

Well, long story short I submitted my blog and I got a response back!  They are interested in blogs with 100+ followers and I don't have that many...*insert sad face*.  BUT...they ARE interested in speaking to me further once I reach that magic number.

Here's where you 55 followers can help me!  I need 45 more followers and then I can get a GO! and I'm guessing have to opportunity to give away a GO! like you've seen on several other blogs. 

And as a incentive, I'm going to do another giveaway...a BIG giveaway!  Here's how its going to work. 
  • Tell your friends about this post in any way you like (i.e. word of mouth, email, blog, etc). 
  • Each person you send needs to become a follower and comment on this post that they are a new follower and tell me who sent them (meaning you and your blog's name).  Then both you AND that new follower are eligible for the drawing as a pair.
Each time someone you know comments and mentions you as the person who sent them, you're entered again...so the more people comment here via you, the greater your chances. 

So I bet you want to know what you're trying to win.  Once I reach 100 followers I will use a random number generator, and the winning commenter and the person who referred them will each win a....


$50 gift certifcate from the Fat Quarter Shop compliments of me!

So there you go...will you help a gal out?

Thank you fellow bloggers from the bottom of my little quilted heart!

Congratulations on your $250 win. Use it towards buying a GO! You'll love playing GO with the rest of us. Yay! I hope you posted about this on AccuQuilt's FB page 'cause they really like that. It should help you get more followers too.

I'm a new follower, and crazyboutquilts sent me here. Good luck on getting more followers. The best way to do it is to start following more yourself...lots of 'em. (and of course, doing the giveaway and talking about it..on FB & Twitter helps too.)
