Important ATC club info

Hi everyone! I just wanted to go over a few things since we have quite a bit of new members in the club.

1) Please do not send machine printed postage, like I said that postage is only good if mailed on the date printed. If you sent machine printed postage for October please re-send stamps and I will mail back the label so you can be refunded. I've been getting a lot of these, and I've been paying for the postage but it's really starting to add up.

2) Starting as soon as you can, could everyone please send a return label or piece of paper with your return address with you ATC's each month. This will save me a lot of time from having to hand write everyone's address and I would really be grateful.

Well that's all I needed to go over, please make sure to check back at my blog at least once a month for new updates. Also if you want to become a member you can see my post on the ATC club details. Thanks everyone and have a spooktacular Halloween!!

I will be MIA for a bit

As most of you already know, I am in the middle of a move and will most likely not have time or even access to my computer for awhile. So, everyone will still send ATC'c to the same address untill further notice. Please don't send anything after November first, I will update you with the new address sometime after that. If anyone has any questions please ask within the next couple of days so that I may answer them, otherwise please hold off or don't expect an answer for awhile. Thanks everyone! Have a happy Halloween if I don't log in before then!

Just some stuff

Ok so everyone should have or should be getting their ATC's very soon, I'm hearing from a few people that they haven't gotten theirs yet so I'm hoping it's not because I used a mail center instead of the post office this time. I think I'll stick to the post office from now on because now I'm a little worried. Also, I held the box swap boxes a little longer than I had hoped because we are moving and I had to get rid of a lot of scrapbooking stuff. In other words I wanted to slip more stuff in your boxes and kill two birds with one stone. So, I will finally be sending the boxes out tmw!! Hope you all enjoy your semi new goodies!
The Halloween layout contest seems to be a hit, I've gotten quite a few pics sent to me already and they all look so awesome it's going to be hard to pick a winner! Good thing you guys are in charge of that!! As for a new video, things are so crazy now that we are moving I don't know when I'll be posting one but hoping it will be next wednesday!! Also I'm feeling so much better now, and I think I should be back to my old self very very soon! Hope you all have a wonderful week!!
