Blog Hop time!

I love Blog Hop weeks because it forces me to be creative and to post my ideas on the blog.  I'm usually so busy running the store that I don't get a lot of creative time.

I do set aside at least one day each month where I leave everything at home and scrap!

I have a few projects to share this week but first....

A little something we have up our sleeve!

Alyssa and I think alike.  Thats one of the reasons she's in charge of the store blog, contests etc.  She approached me about an idea she had brewing and it was something I'd had on the back burner for most of the year.

I like selling kits but the kit process is pretty intense.  Planning, obtaining products, kitting, selling etc.  Its a pretty huge deal but I know our customers like them.  I wanted to make these more available to you on a regular basis but at the same time, I didn't want to turn the store into a Kit store.

This led to instructions and other issues with kits.  How do you instruct you on the cool part of the kit - the techniques.

We developed (by we I mean Alyssa) a separate blog that will house our kit instructions.  These will be available to you via a PDF file when you purchase the kits.  In addition to the printed instructions, we will be offering you a place to go and actually see the videos and get step by step instructions on HOW TO do something in the kit.  When you purchase a kit, you will automatically get access to the blog for a period of time.

Now, if you don't want to buy the kit but you want access to the blog and everything it has to offer then this will be available to you on a subscription basis.

This is just a teaser!  I will reveal more about this later this week along with sneaks of the first kit AND give away a few subscriptions!

If you haven't checked out the other blogs in the Stash Hop, make sure you do.  We're all giving away prizes and gift certificates (Stash Cash) this week!
