Being Published


Posted on : | By : admin | In : Scrapbooking

Wouldn’t we all like even just a little fame? If I were not thinking of a particular subject, I would probably not hesitate to say NO! I don’t want to be a movie star or a singer…I don’t want that kind of Fame.

However, I wouldn’t mind it if someone happened by and knew me by name because of some scrapbook page I had created or some spectacular craft that I had done. Why is it different? Because, I feel like that if I were known by my peers, who would also be crafters, scrapbookers or hobby enthusiasts, that I would feel more connected and less worried about the crazies that follow the movie stars…

Paparazzi? Heck ya!! Bring on all those crazy scrapbooker’s and crafters! Those are my kind of fans!

Recently, over at, an article was posted about the subject of the Scrapbooking Contests, and how they come once a year, and it seems that some of those who seem the likely winner…are not…they are overlooked. This subject is near and dear to my heart, not because I have entered any of those contests, but because I have close friends who have tried year after year, and although I cannot say that every single one of them deserved to be the winner every year, there was at least one of them that should have been at least one time.

Listen in to the show and voice your opinions too!

Want to Be Considered for a Design Team?

How do you know where to find Design Team Calls?

* Look through Magaziness, Newsletters, E-mails
* Google Search
* Use outdated sites….CobWeb sites
* Visit up-to-date sites that publish Design Calls

There are many other ways, like going to all the different forums and looking them up one by one. This may be the route to go if you are only interested in getting on one team in particular, but, if you just want to try your luck or get your feet wet on a design team and then get picky you should have a plan.

What should that plan be? Know what you are good at, know your style, know your limitations and challenge yourself to not set limits that stifle your growth. I have been doing research for years on scrapbooking and home business tips among other things, and one thing I know from personal experience and from watching friends to design for the top scrapbooking companies, is that you really need to organize yourself, and be willing to pull a few all nighters if needs be.

I have hired design team members, hired writers, artists, and been these people myself…I have been the writer, been the design team member, and artist. I have also hired and congratulated many of women who have aspired to the same goals.
