I look more like I am getting ready for my husband's golf trip to Ireland than my scrap contest event in Vegas, but don't let the pictures deceive you. Check out this fun little 'promo' of mine...Nitty.Gritty. golf tees! How fun and colorful are these little guys?!
Can you see the excitement in my face?! That pic was taken just minutes ago...it's me on extra-strength cold medicine, holding a bag of 1000 assorted Nitty.Gritty. golf tees. I thought it would be fun to have something to give to some of the neat people I meet in Vegas at the Memory Trends convention, coming up in less than 2 weeks. These golf tees were one of the ideas that popped into my head as to how to go about 'sharing' a piece of me and my Nitty.Gritty. with so many people.
Golf tees actually have more to do with scrapbooking than any of you scrappers probably realize. In fact, I used golf tees on several of my layouts that I submitted for the CK Scrapper of the Year contest. They are the perfect tool for several things, from tracing a shape, to getting a rub-on to stay on your page, or even to punch out tiny stickers from the inside of alphabets, and they are great for marking where to punch a hole. I found that they were handy for so many different things, and figured I could share my new ideas with fellow scrappers. Besides, they are so quirky and colorful and I have them around my house all the time (in my laundry even), that they just seemed to be an extension of me- cute and quirky, wouldn't you agree?! =)
So, if you happen to bump into me at Memory Trends next month, make sure you get a Nitty.Gritty. golf tee as a souvenir from me. As for the magazine controversy, I don't know whether to apologize or to say thanks. I certainly got mixed reviews on that post, and of course, it was not my intention to offend anyone. I certainly didn't intend to take sales away from those of you who have kids and your own fundraisers. I was doing it more for my family and friends...as a way for them to let me know who wants to get in on this promotion.
Maybe I should have stuck to sending out private emails, but hey, I got some extra sales from the post, so I guess it was worth a bit of time and blogspace afterall. And in the future, maybe I'll have my hubby proof my posts when I'm on cold medicine. If it really was in poor taste, than ultimately I blame my lack of judgement on the Sudafed. I promise I won't blog with a splitting headache ever again! This is the last time I do so. That's a promise.
