Here's the info and Giveaway Info that ties in with my "Card for Mystery Subbie" video!

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!

xx Jane...vv08

  2. Yay Jane! This sounds awesome! I have been DYING to do a swap with someone (I never have before) & I would be interested in being considered. And I'm looking forward to your new tutorials as well. I've been doing some mixed media for maybe a year or so & I ALWAYS want to learn more. I'm loving your new direction btw :)

  4. WOW! Lots of exciting stuff going on !! So glad I am a subscriber so that I don't miss a thing!! I pm'ed you my address and think the card thing should be called "don't worry, Be HAPPY MAIL!" Meaning don't worry it isn't a bill but something you will love! Just an idea.
    Off to see what else is happening around here! Have a great weekend!

  5. Jane, I would love to do a swap with you. I'm still very new to making ATC's (I've only made one so far,LOL) but I would love the challenge of making more. I've been trying to step out of my comfort zone a bit and try something new. Let me know if you would like to swap. Hugs!!

  9. Hi Jane, your card that you made on this info video is gorgeous! I love the silhouette look, I my have to try that myself.
    Also I would love to do an ATC swap with you, but my health is a bit up and down right now, but if I could have plenty of notice, maybe go to the back the list, or have a few months notice say November / December time, Would that work for you??
    Love and hugs,

    1. Thank you for the kind words about my card. I think it's been done before with that stamp, but I guess everyone has their own way they shade. I think that time frame for a ATC swap would work really well, how about November? Let me know and I'll mark it down! xx

      Delete
    2. November would be great Jane, thank you for giving me this opportunity to share my work with you, I very rarely show any of my work so this is a big step for me, but I'm really excited to have this chance x

      Delete
    3. November it is then Dawn, I'm looking forward to it. We can get in touch with each other end of October or beginning of November to work out details. I'm going to mark it down right now! Thanks!

    4. Sorry I forgot to say, how about 'Subbies love' day x

  10. Great card and tutorials. I love making ATC so I would like to do an ATC swap with you. If you want do do a swap with me the ATC have to go to Norway.

    1. Thanks so much. I don't mind the fact you are in Norway, that's no problem. That's the good thing about ATCs, not a big deal to mail. I am getting booked up quickly though, so it would have to be November. Let me know if that's ok with you and I'll mark it down. xx

      Delete
    2. I can do November. I look forward to change AtC's with you:-)

  11. Okay, here's my 'no fear' attempt to name your contest: 'Happening ATC for '? Loyal ? Subbie ? ' Hope I'm posting for the contest in the right spot. Have a wonderful eveing !

  12. Hey Jane,
    First, how about 'RAK in a Card'?...lol. Then, I would love to do an ATC swap in November with you if you still have space. Then I can try out the things that I would learn from your Mix Media Tutorials coming up. Yes I am truly a beginner. Heading over to friend you on Facebook and message my address. Hugs and Thanks Rasheeda

    1. Hi Rasheeda, Thanks for throwing a name into the hat, I'll have several to choose from! It looks like November might be full, but I think I still have one opening left in December. Would you be interested in December? If I do end up having an open spot in November I can let you know. Thanks so much! xx

      Delete
    2. Hey Jane,
      And yes December will be awesome for me. I did see your video on YouTube about where to put what info and I agree completely. I have almost fifty subbie and it is a little difficult lol. Can't imagine 1000... So I don't think there should be any problem with your subbies doing that. Thank for giving me a spot in December: )!
      Hugs
      Rasheeda

    3. I will mark you down for December, if you would please remind me in November. I will have my list, but just to make sure nothing has changed for you. I actually have almost 6000 subbies, but about 1000 activity write me. I handle around 150 emails a day now! It can be overwhelming if people do their own thing with the giveaways and such. Thanks, and I look forward to our swap!

  13. Beautiful card Jane! Love the elegant simplicity of it. My paper passion has always been with making books, cards ATCs and tags. So I am looking forward to following your journey of making cards and ATCs. Happy creating!

    ReplyDelete
  14. My suggestion for a name is "Jane's Surprise Mail"
    Also, if there is a great response for ATC swap would you consider organizing a swap amongst your subbies? You could pair us up randomly and we would have to PM each other for address. Then we could share on FB or wherever.

    1. Thank you for throwing a name in the hat. I know many of you still don't really understand how few hours I have in a day to do things, (all things, not just crafting), when I do lay down to rest my back because of my meds I fall asleep. It's hard to understand since you're not here unless you can relate to me, but I can tell by comments, when someone can relate or not. So I have to make things as easy as I can to make any time at all for crafting. I simply can't put a organizing a swap in on top of all of the other things I try to do. I noticed you didn't leave your address on FB, I realized by asking for them on FB I wouldn't have to write them down, I could just scroll through my PMs and find someone to send a card to. Everything I do, I try to do a way that is time efficient for me, otherwise you all wouldn't see half of the things you do see from me. So by directing me back to Paypal I would have to go back through the screens to find your info and then keep it separate from everyone else that is in one place I can go to on FB. I can't do that Mary. I don't mean to be rude, but I am just hoping to get across the real scenario in my world. My entire day to do productive things, including eating meals, is about 3 hours. I am still in severe pain during that time, but I am least awake. I am not the person you see on the video, that is a person faking it for 30 minutes to get through and look happy for all of those that need to be uplifted struggling like I do. I hope this helps you understand things in a more realistic light. If you like the idea of organizing a swap, maybe you could volunteer to do it?

  15. My suggestion for your card give-away is "From Me To Who!" I would also like to swap ATC's with you, your spots seem to be filling up so will leave it to you to suggest when! Elaine xx

    1. Thanks for throwing a name in the hat Elaine, It turns out I have ended up booked up with swaps through the end of the year. What I'm going to do is, if someone falls through I will as the next person on the list. Otherwise toward the end of the year, instead of asking again if anyone wants to do a swap, I will just go directly to the list and ask you all. Thanks so much!

    2. Hi Elaine, I am going over my ATC swap partner list and I haven't heard from the 2nd person for September. Would you care to do an ATC swap with me next month? I would enjoy doing a swap with you. Let me know if you are available to do one. Thanks!

    3. Yes Jane, as messaged yesterday via Facebook, September is great for me. Looking forward to it.

  20. Jane, I would love to have my name put down for an ATC Swap with you. I realise it maynot be until the new year but that's ok whenever you are ready.
    I have a different Facebook name (Screen Hit which is an anagram of my first name LOL) I have sent you my address thru FB.

  21. Hi my love Jane, I love your blog, I don't often comment, this time I have to.....How about calling your "weekly card to a mystery subbie" a "Random Act of Card-ness"..... Okay maybe not the best, but it did make me laugh! Take Care, Love ya' Patricia B

    1. Hi Kelly, I would like to do one with you as well. I had people commit through the end of the year, but when I contacted them some did not respond back, meanwhile I started a list of others who were interested. It's not a huge list. I will be working my way through the list to fill my year, then later in the year will continue down the list for January, etc. If you're good with me adding you to the list and contacting you when I can do a swap with you let me know. I'm hoping it would be sooner rather then later. Thanks!

  23. Ok, how about this name, Scrappin Happy Mail....

  24. Hi Jane, I have an idea for your contest name. How about... "R U cRAKed?" which stands for Are you the one who has been card RAKed. I just thought it a funny play on words. LOL I know it's corny! I hope you at least get a good chuckle from this. Hugz~Lynda
