Big Idea —Free Pattern

Hi everyone!

I wanted to share a *FREE Pattern* that I am gifting to subscribers of my Newsletter. All you have to do is click on the pop up box that says “Join my newsletter” or you can sign up HERE. 

It’s called Big Idea.

I have been wanting to start a newsletter for quite some time. Back when I created this blog I posted almost daily and many people were reading blogs. It was our form of communication. That has kind of switched a little. There are so many ways. I still read all of my favorite blogs. But the business community tells me that newsletters are the way. haha!

There are so many things to keep up on, right? (how?!)

Newsletters are shorter, come straight to your inbox and have bits & pieces of this & that.

It’s easier for all of us. I am sure.

It’s just that when I sit down to write I guess I am long winded (Rob kind of likes it when I lose my voice for a time because the house is quiet..haha). I share all of my feelings, insights and whatever else is going on. I will still post on my blog. No worries. I always want to hear the FULL story when I am invested in someone as well.

As a business woman I have to *try* and keep up with what needs to happen. Especially when a company tells me what they expect from a designer. Newsletters are a part of that. I just wanted to share all of this in case you wanted/needed to know why there was a difference between the blog and newsletter. They are different subscriptions.

So if you prefer one over the other…if you want both….if you just want the free pattern you can get it and then unsubscribe.:)

But I would love the support.
