With a new year comes new beginnings. We say goodbye forever to 2011 and walk right into a new year full of fresh adventures. The same start of a new beginning can be said for the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz as well.
The changes to this monthly blog-a-thon are minor ones. One change coming is the name of this event. Going forward we will call this event the Waltzingmouse Stamps (WMS) Blog Party. This title accurately describes the fun and festive atmosphere of the “hop”. The event will continue to be held on the 17th of each month and we will still have a theme from which to base our projects, but rather than have you link your blogs in the forum, we will hold the event right here on the Waltzingmouse Stamps Makes blog.
You are all probably familiar with the Inlinkz tool that we use on our Sketch Challenge Blog, and this will work the same way. Your post can go live anytime you wish on the 17th, and you will have until 10:00 a.m. Central Time, 8:00 a.m. Pacific, 11:00 a.m. Eastern, and 4:00 p.m. Dublin time to post your direct link using the Inlinkz tool. The linking option will be closed after that time. From there you can just click on any of the projects linked and be directed to any of the participants’ blogs to get a closer look at their creativity.
On the 20th of the month – we will highlight a few of the entries right here on this blog! We're looking for projects that showcases extra special effort! At this time we will randomly select a winner for a coupon code good for a free set.
So…with that being said, are you ready for the January 2012 theme? We want to leave plenty of room for your creative imagination so our theme for January 17th will be “SWEET THINGS”. That can be food items, a Valentine for your Sweetheart, something you consider to be a sweet thing, or however you are moved to create as long as you use Waltzingmouse Stamps images and show us how you interpret “sweet things”. To get your creative juices flowing, check out some of the sweet sets that might inspire you from WMS.
Now, let’s see what you can do. Come back on the 17th with your direct link and join the fun for an all new WMS Blog Party!
I don't have a blog - what do I do? - it is perfectly fine to use Flickr or other on-line galleries such as the WMS gallery, etc.
I don't have any WMS stamps - what do I do? - We love to see what you do with your WMS at these monthly blogs - so if you don't have any stamps you can still enter by using any of the complimentary templates or digital stamps that make available in the Freebies section at our store!
