got what it takes?

Peggy posted this on the PWCO blog this morning.

Do you got what it takes?

SO today, I woke up, realizing I need help.

-yes you can start with all those wise-cracks now lol

It makes me super excited and sad at the same time when I had this realization. Excited, that PWCO is getting busy enough that I can’t do this on my own.. and sad because I can’t do it on my own anymore..

so today, I’ve posted on SCS my call for DT Coordinator, and the description goes something like this:

Paperworks Co. (PWCO) is an online stamp company and scrapbooking supplier based in Canada, that is looking to expand and grow the current stamp line. Currently, we are searching for a Design Team Coordinator to work along side with Peggy (owner of PWCO) – to promote, expand, and better the blog.

If you deem yourself as the “organized-control-freak-super-fun-and–friendly-but-stern-have-great-ideas-but-no-one-wants-to-listen-social-butterfly”, DO APPLY!

This is a new position, so we will work together to build the role. In general, the DT coordinator is responsible (in collaboration with Peggy) for:

  • Maintaining the daily functions of the blog
  • Creating new promotional ideas for releases (ie: contest, blog hops, etc)
  • Liasse with the DT members
  • Creating Store/blog awareness via different social networks.
  • Commit to a 6 month term beginning June 1, 2010

The DT Coordinator will receive the following:

A welcome package
• Free stamps during your term on the PWCO team
• Discounts on PWCO store products
• Shipping discounts (to coincide with the DT material shipping)
• Other bonuses and incentives
Specifics will be further discussed upon contract agreement.

How to Apply:

Please submit via email to

A paragraph or two introducing yourself and explaining why you choose to join PWCO’s team, and also:

• Provide full contact information including full name, address, email address and telephone number.
• Please provide the link to your active blog and SCS gallery.

• Explain what makes you a good Coordinator, and what will you do to make PWCO a better place
• Please include your past and current DT commitments (we don’t require exclusivity).
• Please include two samples of your best work, including one with a stamped and colored image. (This does not need to be new projects but something that showcases your talents and would be a fair representation of your “regular” work).

This DT call will end on April 5th, 2010 at 11:59 MST.

The successful candidate will be chosen by April 12th, 2010.

Can’t wait to see your aps! Good luck!

more cards...

i know i've been making a lot of cards lately. but i don't mind, i like making cards. I have been getting a lot of special orders from friends and acquaintances which is a good thing!
here are my two latest special order cards:

yesterday i spent the day at the Scrapbook Star anniversary crop and it was alot of fun, i'd never been there but it was great! Sam is really nice and the atmosphere was the same at any crop IMO. I had given myself as a goal to make at least 2 layouts, and i did! i love them both and will be submitting them for sure. I'm just waiting till tomorrow to take the pictures cause today is a rainy day and kinda dark. I will share them as soon as i can. I also managed to make two cards with some images i had already colored. that's a bit more challenging since you have to match your paper to your image and not the other way around. those too I will share later.

Oh?! i almost forgot today is Sunday Sketch at PWCO! go check it out here.

here's my take on the sketch!
