Like Free Stuff? Check it out!

Saturday, May 3, 2008

I gotta say how excited I am to be selected to join the design team for Croppinsville, a brand new scrapbook store that will be opening soon, online and in Oklahoma. The owner is a former CTMH consultant and amazing artist, and she's assembled a mind-blowing pool of talented artists from all over the world for her design team. I'm honored to join the crew. I'm anxiously awaiting my first goodie box of Jenni Bowlin products, can't wait to get "fabulously artsy!"

Now, what about that FREE stuff I mentioned? How about doubling your chances to win? Head over to the Croppinsville blog and check out the It's Not Easy Being Green contest. Croppinsville is committed to being good to our planet, and Allie has lots of ways that the store is going green. Entering the contest is as easy as leaving a comment about how you plan to "Go Green", and you can win a prize of GREEN goodies, shipped in a recycled box.

How about a 2nd chance to win? When you enter Croppinsville's contest, AND you tell 'em I sent ya, AND post a comment here (tell me anything, I just wanna hear from you!), I'll have a random drawing from all who've commented on my blog. Winner will receive three of my little Catch-all bags, as shown in the post below. I'll post the name of the winner on May 8th, so check back to see if you've won!

Just visited "Croppinsville" blog and left a comment there too. It's pretty cool that they are doing the "green" thing, not a lot of companies are going that way yet. Can't wait to see more of their goodies!

Hi Tresa,

First, let me introduce myself, my name is Heidi Berglund and I am a CTMH consultant (almost 8 years) and I love your artwork! I guess you could call me a silent groupie (LOL). I usually just lurk on websites and NEVER post. So, perhaps it's your offering of FREE STUFF (LOL) or better yet, it's because it is about time I told you that I admire you and your artwork. I even created a laundry sign for myself and my mom inspired by the one you made. I even look at every single issue of paper crafts and stamp it for any projects you created! Seriously, I don't want to sound like a bubblering idiot, I just want you to know how fabulous and talented I think you are!

I did go over to the croppinsville website and post a comment and let them know you sent me. Good luck on being on their design team. I know you will be fabulously artsy!

Congratulations! I have always found your work to be exceptional and inspiring, so I know you will be a valued member of their design team!

Hi Tresa,

Just visited croppinville website. I left a comment in my dauhters name because I do not have a google name and she did. I need to get a lot more familiar with this blog stuff.

I also want to tell you how much I admire you work. I hope being on your blog perhaps something will rub off on me.

Hi Tresa,

I just visited the croppinville website and left a comment. I forgot I had a blog with the user name of Scrappygirl. Kind of corny huh. Maybe I should update my blog. Talk to you soon. By the way, I like the fact that they are in Oklahoma since I was born there :-)

Thanks Tresa for being inspiring as always!! Great artwork and I love the tutorial for the mini fabric bags. It makes me think even an amateur like me could make one, lol. And thanks for the Croppinsville's link. I love to hear about what companies are doing to be greener. AWESOME!
