Okay. First I have to say, it has been QUITE a few days! I had to go for ultrasounds on Tuesday and ended up having mammograms as well. I told the technician that if I had known I would have to have the mammograms, I would have practiced by slamming my chest in the refrigerator door a few times.
My son, Zane, is having surgery next week to repair an inguinal hernia. He also has blocked tear ducts, so the eye surgeon is going to get in there and try to fix that while he is under anesthesia.
Not to mention the benefit golf tournament that we attended on Friday when all the golfers were called off the course due to inclement weather. The tournament was to benefit the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasia. My son and I are both affected by one of the Ectodermal Dysplasia syndromes. So, needless to say, we make an effort to attend the functions that we can in order to help out, since they have done SO much for us! I haven't yet heard what the proceeds were from the tournament, but I can almost guess that they suffered from the less than ideal turn of events. If you ever feel inclined to give to a charity, I tell ya, the NFED is a Gold STAR foundation! And of course, charitible contributions are tax deductible here in the US. If you do give, make it in honor of Zane. The gals at the NFED would get a kick out of that.
I'm also trying to learn html, ftp, and scripting. Busy, busy!
Anyway, on to my exciting news...
I have two great new kits in the store, both in my new gemology series, for $4.99 each.
The first is Amethyst.
There is also a cute little freebie at Pretty Scrappy that goes along with it.
You can also grab it via Media Fire.
The second new kit in the store is Saphire.
The Amethyst freebie and the Au Naturale Surprise Freebie
will be deleted on Sunday.
I am also having my first CT call ever! I am looking for dedicated scrappers to join my team. I am looking for CT's, a QP artist, and a Brag Book Artist.
CT- You will need to create at least 2 layouts/kit (minimum 4 layouts/month) posted with credits to DST, Pretty Scrappy, 2 galleries of your choice, and 1 yahoo layout group. CT's will need to participate in the forum at Pretty Scrappy and promote my sales/designs.
QP Artist- NO GALLERY POSTING REQUIRED!!! You will need to create 2-3 quickpages/kit (minimum 2 kits/month) that will be used to promote kits and may later be sold. Quickpages need to be 12x12 at 300 dpi. Because you will not be required to post layouts in galleries, you will need to write a review for each kit used at Pretty Scrappy.
BB Artist- NO GALLERY POSTING REQUIRED!!! You will need to create 4-6 bragbook pages/kit (minimum 2 kits/month) that will be used to promote kits and may later be sold. Bragbook pages need to be 4x6 or 6x4 at 300 dpi. Again, since there is no gallery posting, written review of kit is required.
As part of my team, you will have access to my kits at no charge and will periodically receive other perks.
Finally... drumroll please... I have chosen to change my TOU for my kits. My kits are now all S4H/S4O friendly. Meaning, you may use my kits to produce layouts, cards, invitations, announcements, candy wrappers or books for an individual clients use. Your business must be a home-based small business dealing in the above. The product must be sold/provided to the customer as a flattened (merged) image or in printed format. Credit must be given to Lady V dZine Pretty Scrappy.com where applicable.
Whew! So, what's coming up next? I have two kits in progress, both part of the gemology series. They are Ruby and Turquoise.
Leave me a comment and let me know what gem I should tackle after that. Also, if you have any kit requests or suggestions, I would love to hear from you. And let me know what kind of freebies you like also.
Have a great day!
