A place to inspire and be inspired
Hello MAS Members!!!
I hope you will enjoy all that MAS has to offer; swappping, sharing your crafts, challenging yourself, encouraging each other to grow and making friends in the process!!!
Please let me know if you have any questions, suggestions or ideas.
This is a copy of the email that was suppose to go to all the members, however, many did not receive it, so we are posting the letter here.
Most of you know all the problems that ning sites have been having, the enormous cost, etc. we have come up with a plan. It is time to let everyone know what we have been working on for the future of MAS. We will be moving to minialbumscraps.com. We will be leaving the ning site and moving to our new site around the middle of December, after the swaps have been completed. Julia, with the help of her husband, have been working on setting up the new site for us. For those that don’t know, Julia has joined me and we are now 100% a team. Julia will be running the site and posting swaps and I will be collecting, videoing and swapping all the swaps.
We will no longer be charging a fee to be a member, and will be taking down the paywall; we will be asking for donations once, possibly twice a year to help with the fees associated with running the site. The hope is that by being a free site again, we will get more members and especially more members to swap, which we hope will make it more fun for you.
Even though we are still working on the new site, we want you to go over and sign up, set up your profile and check it out.
On 11/6/17 we will start sign ups for swaps that will be due 2/5/18. This gives almost 3 months to work on swaps and it gives those that don’t have a lot going on over the Holidays, something to work on.
Our first Cat’s Meow for 2018 will have sign ups on the new site and those sign ups will start November 15th and end on November 28th. We will have our first mail in date on 2/15/18. We are going to limit sign ups to THE FIRST 10 MEMBERS. (if we hit 15 we can do that too, but not 11-14) . We want to have two groups of 5, that way we can have two CM’s during 2018 and be done by Christmas.
Our new site will have a store and we plan to have special deals, getting back to the G45 orders, maybe Prima and other deals that we think you may like. Julia may be putting up some of her beautiful work too!
If you have any comments, ideas or concerns, send us a message or email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Head over to minialbumscraps.com !
Merry and Julia
Here are the rules:
1. Send in one entry for every swap you are in. Example if you are in Mini album and Chunky Charm, you can send in two entries.
2. Each entry must be on a white 3" x 5" card. You can just cut white cardstock or use an index card.
3. Please just put your name on the card. Originally I had asked for your name and address, but now realize I don't need your address and I don't want to accidentally show it when videoing.
4. If the size and color of the card are not followed, your entry won't make it into the drawing. This keeps it fair, someone not sending a larger card or a RED card, LOL, to try and increase their luck;-)
