Hahahaha, okay…trying it ONE LAST TIME.  *drumroll* Here we go…

The Search is ON
…for the NEXT…
PEZ-A-DOODLE DESIGNS
DESIGN TEAM MEMBERS!

Yes, I SAID IT and YES, YOU READ IT!  I am so excited to be making this announcement my feet won’t stop tapping and I’m wriggling around in my chair!  This is just the beginning of the bigger and better things that Marti’s got in store for PDD.  I am just freaking tickled pink to get to be a part of it all!  So if you’ve been toying around with the idea of wanting to become a Designer or be on a Design Team, or if your current Design Team is just no fun (heaven forbid…but you know, it could happen…*LOL*), or if you definitely think that you and PDD are just a great fit, then keep on reading!

First of all, let me just start with what it’s like to not just be on any Design Team, but what it’s like to be on Marti’s Design Team! 

It. Is. AWESOME! 

First of all, how easy is it when it doesn’t feel like work at all!?  Assignments are PLAY TIME!  Marti has the best products and comes up with the best and sometimes challenging ways to use them!  But she can push your creativity to the next level or to a place where you never thought you could go – now that is creativity at its BEST!  I used to be so scared of Tim Holtz and Alcohol Inks, now I can’t wait to get my inky little fingers on all the products and new releases!  Designing for Marti is like talking to a friend – which it is, because she’s become one of my best friends, but I digress.  She can really make you feel like part of the team and is always open to your suggestions, ideas and yes, even criticism!  Like our saying goes, “friends don’t let friends release ugly stamps!” *LOL*  Marti is always on the look out for the most inventive and innovative products out there and well…when you have THOSE kinds of products, it only makes sense that she would be looking for the most inventive and innovative individuals to USE those products! …and that, my friends, would be YOU!  YES IT IS!  So let’s get down to it!

Marti is looking for FOUR individuals to join her PDD Design Team either on a 2 month or 4 month term.  When sending in your applications, please indicate which term position you would prefer in the subject line.  All applications must be sent to: marti [at] pezadoodle [dot] com by midnight [EST] of Sunday, March 15th, 2009!  Now let’s break it down some more and get to the nitty-gritty of it all:

Free products, DT discounts, new stamp releases and being a part of an AWESOME team (that includes MEEEEEE!?!?! *LOL* I mean, if I do say so myself…)  If that’s not incentive enough, then I don’t know what is!

If you’ve got any further questions regarding the call and the guidelines, feel free to drop Marti a line or check out her >> BLOG << for more details.  If you’ve decided that this is THE TEAM for you and you’re looking for any examples or ideas to get your mojo going to help get your started, feel free to have a look at the current DT members’ blogs.  If you find anything you like, take it and make it your own to include your own individual ideas and/or style! 

There is still SO much I am dying to type out here!  I’m so excited thinking about all the new developments!  But like the saying goes, the best things are the ones worth waiting for, and let me guarantee you, PDD has got some awesome things in store for everyone! *SQUEALS*  I’m hyperventillating with the new things coming!  You do NOT want to miss it!

But you know what’s even better than getting to see what those fun new things are?  Already HAVING those fun new things and being a PART of it all!  So c’mon!  If you haven’t done so already, it’s high time to get distressed, it’s about time to get inky and it’s past time to hang with Studio G!  Submit those applications because I can’t wait to meet you!

CURRENT MOOD: EXCIIIIITED!  CURRENTLY LISTENING TO: THE BABBLING GOING ON IN MY MIND

    I really don’t know how you gals manage not having me as part of your team, therefore, I will play fair and follow the DT Call rules (So out of character for me to play nice)…. Nonetheless, I think we would have tons of FUN……
