Spring DT sisters a-sprouting…

Posted by Catherine on March 20, 2009

…today is the first day of SPRING!  The flowers are blooming and so is my wonderful Design Team! *squeals* Here’s a little bit of news before I get to the other good stuff…

I’ve been made the DT Leader for Pez-a-Doodle Designs!
*Happy Dance* w00t! *shake shake*
Looks like the new PDD design team is stuck with me!
HAHAHAHAHA…be scared…

As of this point, Marti and I have got the team down, locked and loaded!  It was definitely  a really tough job, not going through the applications, but seeing how much talent there is to choose from!  If you have not heard from us yet, don’t worry, it’s because at this time, we’re only just getting the notifications out!  Marti’s been working overtime cranking out the E-Mails!  A little bonus announcement, because there were so many wonderful submissions, Marti decided to increase the number of spots available!

For everyone who applied and showed their interest and enthusiasm for all things Pez-a-Doodle, thank you SO much for taking the time to send in your appliations and submissions!  I loved getting to “know” so many of you and hearing all the different stories behind how you got into crafting and where your favourite hobby is taking you!  I’m sorry that we weren’t able to choose everyone, but remember, if your application wasn’t chosen this time around, it was only because there just wasn’t enough space to choose everyone, but we will most definitely be keeping your applications and submissions in mind for the next DT call! 

Marti will be announcing the OFFICIAL DT roster later on today once we’ve heard back from the DT’s chosen for this term.  Don’t forget to check it out and hopefully we’ll see you as the term goes…PDD has so much exciting things in store for this Spring!  We’re just getting started!!!

Design Teams are a-Springin’…

Posted by Catherine on March 5, 2009

It looks like with the coming of spring, there’s also a start up of demand in Design Team calls.  I am only now becoming more aware and familiar of what Design Teams are and their importance, so I thought I would do up a little poll to see what everyone’s thoughts are on Design Teams and most especially how that applies to my very own beloved PDD Design Team!  I wonder how many more times I can mention the words Design Team in this paragraph before people start getting annoyed and disgusted with my overuse of the term Design Team.  *LOL* 

Hopefully you’ll get a chance to drop me your input using my poll below!

No project to share today (well, none that I’m allowed to share with you just yet, anyway *secretive giggle*).  Last night was mine and Bart’s ‘date night’ and it was soooo romantic!  We worked on our taxes.  BWAHAHAHAHA…hey, finding out how much of a tax refund you could be getting back from the government (to spend on MORE craft stuff) is SEXY!  Right…?!? *LOL*

I hope to be back here tomorrow with some more things to share and chit-chat about, I’ve definitely got things a-brewing!  Thank you for the comments you’ve been leaving regarding my new little  ‘place’ here in the world wide web, I really enjoy reading everyone’s comments and thoughts about this crazy craft of mine!

The Search is ON…

Posted by Catherine on March 4, 2009

…for the NEXT Top Chef! BWAHAHAHAHA…wait, that’s not right.  Okay…again, again!  The Search is on…for the NEXT American Idol!  okay, okay! I have got to get a grip on myself!  *LOL* My mom thinks I’m funny…

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!

Posted by Catherine on November 26, 2008

…that time has finally come! I now know how it feels to be the only child and then have to welcome a little baby brother or sister…except this situation is totally different, but still kind of the same thing…HAHAHAHA, ANYWHO!!!

As the former sole DT member of Pez-a-Doodle.com, I would OOOOFFICIALLY loooove to welcome CHRISTINE RILEY to the family!!! I’m so excited for a new design member, because first off, the MORE THE MERRIER and second, it’s because Marti’s got bigger and better things coming YOUR way! How so, you ask…weeeeell, you’ll just have to wait and see, but I can assure you, FUN announcements and surprise on the way!

To start off the fun and exciting, and to welcome our newest DT member, I’ve got a link you are NOT going to want to miss! ESPECIALLY if (like my mom) you’re just starting out in stamping and inking and all things Distressingly Tim or if you’ve been into it and just want to build up your stash, Marti’s having an amaaaazing SALE exclusive to individuals we deem worthy enough to share the link with!!! (And of course that would be YOU my oh, so fabulous readers!). So here it is:

After you’ve clicked to your heart’s content and rest easy knowing that your FABULOUSLY fun goodies will be on their way to you, mosey on over and visit Christine and wish her a congrats and best wishes!!!
