Since it’s my first post of the year here on Paper Crafts Connection, and since my own personal New Year’s resolution is to have more FUN in 2013, I thought it might be a good time to talk about the myriad of ways there are to have FUN with Paper Crafts magazine.
There are the obvious answers, of course:
Subscribe to the regular issues that are always chock full of moxie fab inspiration and arrive in your mailbox 6 electrifying times a year.
Frequent this blog and the Moxie Fab World daily for endless and bounteous amounts of scintillating paper-crafting inspiration.
Leave comments along the way. Who knows? You may make a friend. You might find inspiring folks to follow. You may even win a prize.
Attend our promotional weeks in which we sneak peek the informational special issues that we have to offer at least once a month—sometimes even more!
But perhaps less obvious, and maybe a little more risky—but with the potential to be highly rewarding—maybe this year you might consider having a different kind of fun. The kind of fun that comes from challenging yourself. The kind of fun that s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-s your boundaries. The kind of fun that can only be achieved from getting a little uncomfortable in your skin.
You know, put yourself out there. Try something new. Live on the edge a little.
For example, you could:
Enter our upcoming Stamping Royalty Contest. (Details will be announced soon!)
You could also think about throwing your hat into the ring for our Gallery Idol competition which begins later this year. Or the 2013 World Card Making Day Contest which will take place in October.
Or how about entering one, two, three, four, or all of our monthly Gallery Challenges? These are always tied in to the regular issues and are seasonal, challenging, and FUN!
The Tuesday Triggers are simply a visual prompt to help spur your creativity and are, as rumor has it, a ton of fun. The Moxie Fab World Challenges are based on the trends featured in the Moxie Fabs column in the regular magazine and come from our promotional week celebrations as well.
But you know what? The one thing that might be the most fun of all? The one thing that could possibly bring you the most joy of anything I’ve listed so far? Submitting something to Paper Crafts magazine. Just one thing.
You might not get picked up.
But then again, you might.
And wouldn’t that be something? Think of all the FUN you would have seeing your work in print with your own little byline! Think how FUN it would be to get a check from Paper Crafts magazine as our thanks for helping us out! Think how FUN it would be to announce to the world that you’ve been published!
It’s up to you. Pick one. Pick all. But there are a whole lotta ways to have a fun 2013 here at Paper Crafts magazine, and I hope you all will join us in one way, another, or all of the above!
Dogging for some moxie fab fun,
P.S. Or how about attending one of our paper-crafting classes at a Creating Keepsakes Convention near you? Or better yet, you might want to consider going on our Scrap & Paper Cruise at the end of September! Now that’s what I call a boatload of FUN!
