This exciting day has finally arrived!
The day when *our* big secret is revealed and *we* can share with you our fantastic new blog, Among the Gum Trees :-)
In a (gum) nut-shell, this is what we're all about:
A merry band of Australian designers sharing a few of their original and varied designs freely for your personal use.
Among the Gum Trees is the brainchild of Jenny of Elefantz, who's brought together nine established and emerging designers to offer something new and exciting to the world - their own original designs - free of charge!
Free designs? Are we mad?! Well no, we're not insane, but we do affectionately refer to each other as "the nutters", and we look forward to sharing our designs, our news, and our "nutty" adventures with you!
When is all of this happening?
Starting on MONDAY 5 OCTOBER and thereafter on the subsequent Monday of the following eight weeks, there will be a FREE Christmas-themed design for you to download.
Then after Christmas, on the seventh day of each month starting Thursday 7 January 2010, there will be one free design offered to you from each designer, in turn. So, one free design each month for you to use for your personal use.
So without further ado, let me introduce you to the Gum Tree Designers!
Cheryl of Willowberry Designs
Dawn of Dawn Hay Designs
Fiona of Mothers Cupboard
Jenny of Elefantz
Joy of JoyPatch
Judith of Creative Studio
Paula of Sew Little Time, Sew Little Fabric
Vicki of Tozz's Corner
and little ole' me, of course! :-)
As well as free designs, you will also receive monthly news from our editor and notification of all new for-sale pattern launches and giveaways. The only thing we ask of YOU... is to spread the word! Let's see how far those gum nuts can fall from the trees! :-) So please take our Among the Gum Trees button and add it to your blogs. It will be worth your while, because...
Because we are a generous bunch of nuts, we are EACH HAVING A GIVEAWAY to celebrate the launch of Among the Gum Trees. And you can enter them all! But... because we have become so good at teasing... we will be launching our giveaways tomorrow!! If you are a follower, or become a follower of my blog I will give you an EXTRA ENTRY! :-)
So in the meantime, grab yourself a cuppa, and sit down to enjoy touring our new blog! Be sure to become a follower so you get first notification when those Christmas designs start flowing! With a free design offered to you weekly, you will have your handmade Christmas wrapped up with time to spare!
I shall be back tomorrow... doesn't the eucalyptus smell wonderful? :-)
