July Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz

ED - Yup! Scrapaddict! anyone can participate but you will need to register in the forum to get to the links, but don't worry, we're harmless!

I hope you've marked your calendar for Saturday, July 17th... our monthly Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz! The theme is the colors of summer... blue and green (any shades of your choosing)...which I also happen to think of as the colors of Ireland (*wink*).

We're going to try something a bit differently this month to address two wee problems. Maybe "problems" isn't the right word...rather, things we think we can improve.

One is the timing of the start of the Waltz... which in the past, turns out to be very late in the day for folks in the UK. Another is having to be at your computer when the blog waltz threads go live in the forum to link your posts. So here's what we're trying this month...

The threads in the forum will open on Friday, July 16th at about 3:00 am Eastern, 8:00 am GMT. You'll have all day on Friday to link your blogs for the waltz.

Then, everyone will schedule their blog waltz posts to go live on Saturday, July 17th at midnight Pacific, 1:00 am Mountain, 2:00 am Central, 3:00 am Eastern, 8:00 am GMT. Participants and waltzers alike can then waltz at their leisure whenever convenient that day... and on through the weekend for a chance to win a prize.

Note: this means that you will be linking your general blog address on Friday, not a link to your actual post since it won't be live until the above time. So, for waltzers to easily locate your Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps blog post, please place the Blog Waltz graphic (above) at the top of your post.

Hopefully, this makes sense and will make things better. After we give this a try, we want your feedback... should we continue this way, go back to the old way, or do something completely different? Your opinions matter! This waltz is for YOU, our treasured customers, so we want to do it in a way that makes it the easiest and most pleasurable for YOU!

Oh, and of course there will be prizes!!! One of the Blog Waltz participants will be randomly selected to win a stamp set of choice, and one of the waltzers who correctly determines the number of special watermarks found in the design team and Claire's waltz post photos will be randomly selected to win a stamp set of choice!

If you have any questions, please pop a comment below. Also, if you don't mind, we'd love it if you'd post our Blog Waltz graphic with a link back to this post on your blogs!

See you on the 17th!!!

  6. Claire - can we only use Waltzingmouse stamps on your waltz? I only own a couple of the labels sets so I'm not sure if that's ok?

  7. Ack - I wasn't paying attention - so I don't know if my comment really posted. Can we only use WMStamps to waltz along? I only own a couple of the label sets (so far *giggle*) so was just wondering... Thanks,
