Looking for Podcast Sign Off Suggestions

Listeners to the podcast know that I never seem to end my podcasts the same.  I never know how to wrap up.  Allison has the "Don't forget to stay within a quarter inch", and I love that!

I don't like any that I've tried - "Quilt on, Cupcakes" or "Keep on Crafting" -- sometimes, I just say goodbye.
"That's a wrap" or "Signing off Now" both seem too generic, and not crafty enough.

So, I'm having a little contest to come up with a good ending or "outro" -- what do YOU think I should say?

Please add your suggestions in the comments below.  Whoever submits the phrase I like best will win a special crafty prize, including a selection of fat quarters, notions, etc.  I'll put together a little basket, and add a photo here later.  I'll leave the contest open until 10/16.

Also, FYI, this week's podcast (#37) can't be posted until 10/13 -- I'm out of space on my server, and it won't clear until then.  I'll update the blog and twitter when it's up.

Hey Jean - I also love my outro :) Thanks for noticing!

How about
Go quilt a cupcake!

OK, not so good, but it's late. Oh, and not that I think you will pick this outro but you do not need to include me in the contest... well, unless I win, that is.

Save the world, quilt cupcakes.

How about, "And that's the frosting on the cupcake." Or, "This cupcake's frosted. See ya'." Just a couple of thoughts. I always enjoy your podcasts, Jean. Keep 'em coming. I have started a walking routine and am using it as the time to listen to my podcasts. Once I get caught up on them, I hope to keep up with you better!

hmm good question and contest:
I think you should say, " Until next time, work on getting that quilt finished"

How about, "Until next time, keep on quilting and making cupcakes for the ones you love!"

I like your new photos at the top of your blog.
There are some good sign off suggestions made already. Can't wait to hear what you decide.

How about an affirmation, something like, "remember YOUR creativity is the icing on the cupcake".

"til nxt time, carry on quilting, Cupcakes!"

Crafty Christina said...

How about "Until we stitch again!" Sort of like, until we meet again, but more crafty appropriate.

Mary said...

Until next time, I hope all your pieces fall into place!

You have some great suggestions here. I do think yu should keep is along the lines of your name "Quilted Cupcake".

Like "...and once again, that's it for today. Thanks for listening to the quilted cupcake podcast. I wish you cupcake dreams and finished quilts. Now go be creative."
