Hello Ladies and Gentlmen, I sure have a lot to share with you all, so much going on. With the destash in my rear view mirror and my mind racing with ideas, I need to catch you all up so we can hopefully have some fun on this blog! I know I don't answer comments anymore, but by not doing that it frees up the good time of my day to do things like what I'm listing below. I think it's a better trade off.
First big news I think - I finally got a Flash Contest going. Flash Contest #7 is the post below this and the question is to the right. There's new rules on how the winner will be chosen, so take a read, I think you'll like the new way. It gives more people a shot at playing along an having a chance to win.
Secondly - Related to the Flash Contest - ReneaBouquets is now getting involve with them. Yes! I'm so excited about this. Renea will be sending me little giveaway items each time she sends me a haul package or my DT package. So now I will have more options for gifts, I can rotate her items in with the ATC and Ink Blending Tool gifts.
Third - I am now going to be making a card each week that I want to mail out to one of my loyal subbies. So, yes, one of the requirements is that you are a subbie. At this point I do not have addresses for most of you (this includes International folks). I need them so I can randomly choose a subbie each week and send them a card that will hopefully brighten their day. I will be making the card each week on video, so if I have your address, who knows, it just might show up at your door! There is no obligation to play along and give me your info, but if you want to, please do so via private message on FaceBook. Here's my FB Link: www.facebook.com/jane.klindworth if you are not already my Friend, send me a Friend request. After I have accepted it, you can send me a Message with your info. I have found that Youtube is just too difficult with the PM's and I don't want to deal with them. Here is this weeks card:
I think this "weekly card to a Mystery Subbie" needs a better name... this one isn't good at all. I tried to get something out of Mike...and nothing, he said it was too short of notice for him to come up with a good name...LOL
So, here's the deal... Name this "weekly card to a Mystery Subbie" activity and the winner will be sent their own special card of Thanks. Let's give this a few days. Please leave your names on this post by midnight Wednesday, the 13th. I will pick a winner on the 14th!.
Fourth - Yes there's more...lol Since I have settled in to ATCs and Cards I have decided I want to do two ATC swaps a month. I had turned down some offers to do swaps because I was doing them only within a small group of close friends on YT. At that time I was still testing the waters to see if this was the direction I wanted to go. Now that I do want to go this direction, I want to set up 2 swaps a month. I have one set up for September I think... If you are interested in doing an ATC swap with me in the future, please let me know. You can leave me a comment attached to this post. I do hope to hear from some of you! I know there is some amazing talent on my channel! Internationals are welcome too.
And Finally - I am starting the beginner mixed media tutorial series "Basic Backgrounds". The first video, which is all about product, what you'll need, etc is up on my channel. I hope this series is a great success. I'm super excited about it. It's going to be very detailed and have a focus on the true beginner. So, if you've never even picked up a stencil or a stamp that are mixed media related and you've always wanted to - this will be the series for you. I hope many of you will tune in!
Wheeew I think that's everything. I'm really having fun since I'm finally heading in the right direction.
Thank you all for the kind words, the encouragement, and endless support!
