A change is a' comin....

Good Morning, Islanders!

It is with a heavy heart that I find myself needing to make some changes here on the Island for the upcoming season. I've just recently (as in this morning) heard about some shady things going on in the back of the Island under the palm trees.

Therefore I am taking pay-to-play off the table.. This season will be a free season as last season was. I will be the sole sponsor for this season. So our "Sole Survivor" this time around will have a chance at winning not only some fabulous "LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbons" but also a prize pack filled with all kinds of crafty goodness!

As far as voting goes this season there will be changes as well. I haven't completely ironed everything out yet but I will before the season starts and make sure everyone is aware of how things will go. Different problems arose last season as far as the poll voting so I guess we live and learn and roll with the punches!

My main goal here on the Island is to do my best to make this a FUN & FAIR experience for all involved. I will do my best to handle situations but I can only do this if I am aware of the problems. That being said if anyone ever has a question, comment or concern I ask that you PLEASE email me at papercraftisland@gmail.com so I can address these things as they come up rather then finding out after the fact!

Because of these changes I will be extending the call to start until Feb 15. If anyone who has currently signed up to play decides that they do not wish to please let me know asap.

I look forward to Season #2 and hope that everyone enjoys and has a good time playing (or watching from the sidelines!)

Until next time
Hugs from the Island ♥

Postcard from the Island

Hello Mainlanders!!!
Happy 2013!!! I hope this new year finds you in good health, some extra $$ in your pocket and lots and lots of Crafty-ness!!! :)

It's been a few months out here on the Island all alone...I'm dying for some company...So.... I'm inviting you out for Season #2 of PCI!!!!

Can I get a WHOO HOO :)

Things will be a little bit different this time around. I've decided instead of getting sponsors this season will be a "pay to play" and have a cash prize!!! Now how about that?? Who doesn't want a chance to win some money???

So this seasons "Pay to Play" will be $5. If we get 12 players then the grand prize winner will get $60! Sounds like a good deal if you ask me! (and you'll notice I am NOT keeping any money for myself! I'm not in this to make money...I'm in it for the fun!!!  :) The 2 runner ups will not leave this island empty handed though... They will each get their choice of collection of my new "LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon" found HERE! By the end of this season we will most likely have even  more collections to choose from!!! :)

So what do you need to do? Email me at papercraftisland@gmail.com with your desire to join. Attach a photo of your all time favorite project along with your name and why you want to join us!  You must have a paypal account in order to send your $5 and receive your winnings should you be our grand prize winner!!! Please only apply if you are serious about staying on the Island.... Last season took awhile to get into because people kept dropping like flies!

I'd like to have our 12 contestants ready to go Feb 1!!! So you've got time to decide! As always this will be anonymous (unless you'd like me to reveal you at the end!!!) The rest of the rules will be the same as before as well as the general schedule idea! Both are listed on the side of the blog up on the top right! :)

I truly hope we will have another awesome season of "Paper Craft Island" and I can't wait to hear from you all!!!

Until then...
Hugs from the Island ♥
