Winter serves us up a huge helping of boredom sometimes. Ok, maybe just me! I'm trying to keep busy by kicking the store activities up a notch.
For those who love a challenge, I've got one...a whole 12 months of challenges. When I get to look at you guys' layouts I see: cute babies, learning to walk, fishing pictures, sports.....hey! Where's mom? Behind the camera and behind the layout, no doubt. So 2008 has been unofficially declared (at least at Dreams & Memories) " A Year of ME!" Your family will want to know about your life..later, when they grow up.
Here's how I work a challenge. I give a topic...sometimes easy, sometimes hard. Make a layout using it as your theme and bring it into the store by the 15th of each month. In return, I will give you each a $2 voucher to use in the store and hang your work of art up for a month. At the end of the month, all participants' names go in a drawing. (This month it is a $10 gift card to the store, next month?)
Isn't that simple? I need new layouts to display in my store and YOU need to document YOUR life! I'm not real big at rules (drove my mom crazy) but there are guidelines: Pages due by 15th of month
You must journal your story
You must have fun doing it (Patty!)
I thought our first layout would be in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday. We all know that he "Had a Dream". So do you. So scrap your dream this month. It can be a childhood dream, a marriage dream, a silly or a serious dream. Mine felt serious at the time...now it's silly. I don't even have pictures of part of mine...cause they never came true. But they were a huge part of me growing up. So have fun with it. Since only my "regulars" know about the challenge, just this once, I'm extending the due date to Tuesday, Jan. 22.
The new CuttleBug Club (CBC) that Katie has started has really stirred some kind of interest. The first one is SOLD OUT! First in D&M history for a sell out. The club will be the 3rd Tuesday of each month and MUST be pre-payed by the 1st of each month. That way I can have enough supplies and more can join.
What is the CBC? Katie, using CB dies, will teach us different projects each month. (this month it is a card, candy topper, & a candle wrap). For $20, you get to complete each project AND KEEP THE DIE TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION!! Sweet deal!
Future incentives to join the club include;
with every 3rd paid in full class, get the 4th at half price!
special insider sales of CuttleBug Dies
I'm signed up! Come join us!
I've got some scrapping to do, so till next time...
