Early end to "Pin it to Win it" - **Update**

**Update** - only the first 10 people out of at least 80 who qualified will get their fabric bundles from the below contest. I understand that she can't give away 80 bundles of fabric... but it is a little naive to start the whole thing and say "I was only expecting about 3 people to be interested - sorry everyone!"
... o well, we only wasted 2 days blogging/tweeting/facebooking/pinning some free advertising for her store. Hopefully next time it will be a bit better thought out and the original rules will stick.


Wow - soooooooo many people jumped on Randi's "Pin it to Win it" contest. Her fabric bundles were all over pinterest, bloggy land, flikr, twitter, and facebook! It seems that she was not expecting such a big response and interest because she ended up closing the contest early yesterday at 3pm MST instead of giving everyone the scheduled 3 days to get all of their re-pins. I can definitely understand tho, 3 days would have resulted in tooooooooo many people getting bundles worth $15-70 for free.

I'll be interested to see if those of us who emailed her with our qualifying pinned bundles by the deadline will actually get those bundles in the mail sometime in the future.

Thanks to everyone who helped me repin and thank you soooooooooo much to Marika who let me know the contest was closing early so I could submit my smaller back-up bundle that already had enough pins!

Hopefully this beauty will be coming to live with me in the near future... will keep you posted if I hear anything:

I couldn't believe it when I saw the new deadline! I had like an hour to get 26 pins by the time I got online! I should have chosen a cheaper bundle too. It is a shame how the rules were not clear at the start and she kept on changing them. It was naive to think it would get small response. Like hello FREE fabric!
