Back in the Saddle Again


I am so excited to be scrapbooking for myself! I haven't done so in longer than I would like, what with Lola's Legacy consuming my time for a while. I wish I could scrap a little everyday, and then maybe I would be 'caught up', but alas, I don't live in a fantasy.
I have been dealt an amazing opportunity, thanks to Jenn. I really can't thank her enough! She recommended me to a friend of hers who's in 'the biz' and is launching a new product line this month. She called me while I was in Charleston, and once I got home I emailed her a portfolio. Since then she has sent me oodles of free product, and asked me to create some layouts to submit to create a buzz for the new company for it's debut at the CHA show later this month. I am of one 6 people they have asked to do so, and it could warrant further design opportunities if they like what I do. (Fingers crossed!) The pay initially is just free product, which I'll take any day. If any of my layouts are published in any of the 10 sources they have asked me to submit to, they will pay me a small sum in addition. I'm really excited to have this opportunity, and even if it doesn't go any further than this, I'm still thankful. I have one layout done already, and am working on my second. I have to finish them all by Monday, so between that and the duties of my new calling, I'll be a bit busy. In other words, please forgive me if I am notably scarce for the next little while. I will try to continue to participate as much as possible though. You can check out this company's website, but they probably won't have anything up until after CHA at the end of this month. I'm excited about them! They are called Imaginisce. (Think Imagine + reminisce= Imaginisce.)

Wow, pretty impressive that you're already working on your second lo! I can't wait to see the products and what you come up with. Everything you do impresses me, I can't imagine they won't love it. Ah, scrapbooking. At this point, it's just a distant memory...

Wow, that sounds like fun. Especially since you have this creative gift. Hopefully something will work out for you and perhaps you won't have to find a job outside of your home (i.e., the ever dreaded Wal-Mart). Good Luck!!

I can't wait to check it out tonight! I wish their website has something, but alas, I will be patient. I am so happy that this has dropped in your lap and I will cross my fingers that it turns into something more.

What a perfect opportunity for a creative genius like yourself! I've been missing you on the blogs and wondering where you are. Good luck with all your creations, I know you'll be great at this. Here's to lots of free products AND compensation later.

I am SO glad she called you! I don't know how much Joan told you but their company was connected with Bazzill for a while (any of the products with the butterfly on the package came from them!) I know you'll be great!! I saw a layout they put on the back of their packaging and you will REVOLUTIONIZE their design side! You also can bring enthusism to what you do AND you'll have great feedback on their product! and future products?!...
GOOD LUCK JESSIE!

Yay! That's an awesome opportunity for you! It sounds like it's something right up your alley; I have no doubt you'll do great. The free scrapbook supplies is also a definite plus!

Sounds like a wonderful opportunity. I'm so happy for you. Even the idea of potentially making money doing something you love is exciting. Good luck. I'm sure you'll be a scrapbooking celebrity in no time!

Congrats. How fabulous would it be if it all worked out and they paid you. Although- I would be all over the free product. You are so talented, I am sure they will love all of your layouts. Good Luck!
