four years, four winners


It’s April 1st, which means My Mark is now 4 years old. Sometimes I feel like I’ve been in this business for about 20 years, and sometimes it feels like only a few minutes. Being a professional designer isn’t easy and it isn’t always fun (my workday consists of much more than just eating bon bons and stitching) but I feel as though I am doing exactly what I’m meant to be doing at this stage of my life… and that’s a nice feeling.

I want to share this teeny milestone with you, so I’m giving away four My Mark prize packs. I have 4 goody bags of charts and (?) that I’ll be sending out to the winners…all you need to do is leave a comment on this post before Monday. As always, this contest is open to anyone, anywhere, even if this is your first time visiting this blog. Thank you for helping me celebrate!


Edited: the drawing is over… winners list will be posted 04/07.  Thanks for all the entries!
