Exciting Launch of Among the Gum Trees!

The secret is out !

The day when *our* big secret is revealed and *we* can share with you our fantastic new blog entitled Among the Gum Trees.

In a (gum) nut-shell, this it’s 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 has brought together nine established and emerging designers to offer something new and exciting to the world - their own original designs – to download free of charge!

Free of charge?! 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’ journey with you along the way, and among the gum trees!

So when is all of this happening?

Starting on Monday 5th October and thereafter on each subsequent Monday of the following eight weeks, there will be a FREE Christmas-themed DESIGN for you to download.

Then after Christmas, on the 7th day of each month starting 7th January 2010, there will be one free design offered to you from each designer, in turn. So, one free design every month for you to use for your personal use.

As well as the free designs, you will also receive monthly news from our editor and notification of all new for-sale pattern launches. The only thing we ask of YOU… is to please spread the word! Let’s see how far those gum nuts can fall from the trees!

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!!!

So in the meantime please start spreading the word and add our ‘Among the Gum Trees’ button to your blog! With a free Christmas design offered to you weekly you will have your handmade Christmas all wrapped up with time to spare!

I look forward to launching my giveaway tomorrow; and if you become a follower of my blog I will give you an extra entry!
Until then… embrace the gumnuts!

Just a thank you to you and the other designers for creating this new blog to share your lovely designs free to everyone.

It enables lots of folks to do your designs that normally wouldn't be able to, so thanks again, and will be going to each of the other ladies blogs and thank them also.

I follow your blog....and thank you and your fellow designers for sharing your creativity with the internet...I probably missed it in my excitement but is there any particular way that you and your "nutters" want the word spread? I will be happy to put out the word wherever I happen to be on the internet...Bravenet, Facebook, blogspot, flickr, etc.
