Yay- Mission Accomplished...

Greetings Folks-
I have been planning, brain-storming, organizing and sewing for this event... I'm really excited about this!

Thanks to you all who've joined me so far! I'm happy to have you!

News Update:

I'm thrilled to announce that I have purchased 7 patterns for 7 Lucky Winners. That's right- My mission was to purchase 7 patterns as prizes for the "Lucky 7" Drawing as well as requesting permission to provide those as winning patterns for prizes. And I met my goal today! Yippy! A huge Thank You to the pattern creators for granting me my wish - to provide awesome prizes for You! You Rock! The Artists are linked on the side bar under - yes- you guessed it "Lucky 7".

Now that I have the "Lucky 7" taken care of. I can now focus on making a custom Raggedy Ann "Birthday" doll for ONE winner. Here's the Catch - you need to post the Blog Party event button on your blog or website. It needs to be visible by Sept. 7th! I'll be checking and checking it twice :) ! If time permits - I might make 2. Who knows! *crosses fingers*
Winner will be drawn on Sept. 14th.

Here's another chance to win a prize:
One Yard of Raggedy Ann & Andy Back to School Mini Patch fabric

Welcome to my first event ... Birthday Blog Party. !

A Raggedy Ann Birthday Blog Party!

Who: You're Invited!
What: Raggedy Ann's Birthday Blog Party
When: Monday September 7th, 2009
Where: http://rablogparty2009.blogspot.com/

Since I love this red-headed cutie pie and she's America's Sweetheart- I thought it'd be nice to honor her Birthday on Sept. 7th.

I'd love for all collectors, makers and lovers of Raggedy Ann from all over the world to come and celebrate with me! Yep ... including Y-O-U!

If you're a collector, maker and/or lover - please snap some pics and share your collection on your blog (if you have one) with me and the world. On September 7th - I will blog hop and see everyone's collections, dolls, and stories! So be sure to make a special post on September 7th for this event!

I'll be show-and-telling my collection of dolls too. Some that I've made, bought and some that were given to me as gifts. It can be one, two, or a whole bunch. It can be post cards, fabric, dolls, figurines, any kind of memorabilia.
I'd love to see! If you have a story to tell... I'd love to hear about it!
Let's share the Raggedy love *lol*

I also have some Birthday FUN planned! I will be having Raggedy Ann Prizes for 7 lucky winners! Yep - SEVEN! Prizes include Raggedy Annie patterns from great artists, a custom doll made by me and 1 yard of Raggedy Annie fabric. WooHoo! To be entered in the drawing you'll need to come by on September 7th and leave a comment in that post (on Sept. 7th). So reserve the date! :O) I will ship internationally as well!
The drawing will take place on Monday September 14th, one week from the party. So that everyone has a chance to party, blop (blog hop) and play along. More details about this when the date draws near ... so stay tuned for that!

Please grab this button and spread the word! The more the merrier!
