Uptown Molly Going To Her New Home

It was so exciting to have a give-away here at R.Kay Design! Last Monday the Rafflecopter thing I used to keep track of everything chose Gloria Walshver as the lucky winner. So Uptown Molly is on her way today to live with Gloria.

It was fun having a Give-Away and I think I'll do more of them. I'm always making purses and handbags when I'm creating a design. I certainly don't need all of them and who better to have them than my wonderful readers!

I really liked Rafflecopter, it kept track of everything and then it used to choose the winner, it couldn't be more fair than that. However, I did learn a few things along the way. I think my first mistake was making it mandatory to "Like" my Facebook page. I think it's a mistake to make any category mandatory, I won't do that again. That way those who want to enter can just do the things they want.

Writing a note for Gloria

Wrapping Molly
Another thing I need to do is some research. I really thought more folks would enter. Maybe it's because I didn't know where to go to tell everyone. I tweeted about it on Twitter, I posted it on Facebook, I mentioned it in my weekly email, and I posted it on Still only 41 entries and only 10 different people. I'm certain some didn't enter because of the mandatory Facebook, I'm learning.
Next time I think I'll send a separate email to my list so it's noticed by those special people who gave me their email address. I really
want them to know about it. And maybe I can find some more places to list it so people who don't know my site will find it. I know you guys want the give-away to stay small so your chances of winning will be better, but I really want to grow this site to be a great place for discussions, conversations, and learning. And I also someday want this to be how I make a living. I want this blog to be a winning place for everyone and the more the merrier! So if any of you know how I can expand entries for my next give-away, I'd really appreciate your comments.

So good-bye Uptown Molly and until next time ~

Have you contacted Sew Mama Sew to see if she could highlight one of your tutorials? She's doing something right now that's a 'handmade for the holidays' thing daily with tons of great handmade tutorials. Maybe you'll get lucky and she needs more to fill in for any that may have dropped out.

If I think of any others, I'll let you know

Vicki, thank you, that's a great idea. I only have the one tutorial right now but I'll check it out. Thanks!

I did list the Molly Handbag pattern in the projects area at - a lot of people stopped by and signed up to get the pattern. is a great website.
