3 short days ago, I announced a fun little contest to incent you guys to list your upcoming paper crafting events via our free paper crafting event listing service. (Original announcement.)
At the time, we had just under 400 events listed in our database of upcoming paper crafting events throughout the US. I said we would giveaway the opportunity to be actively promoted by us via all of our channels (facebook, email, blog, twitter, etc) to one event lister, once we hit 500 listings. Eh, I figured it might take a week or two to reach 500 listings.
Well, ha! It look less than a day! And now, 3 days later, we have 800 (eight hundred!!) paper crafting event listings in our database. How COOl is that?!? Downturn in the economy? Who cares! Constriction in the paper crafting industry?
And as exciting as this is to me — I KNOW there are even more out there to share! 800 is a lot! But if you break it down, I know we can do better 🙂 Check it out…
- Alabama: 14 events listed
- Arizona / New Mexico: 23 events listed
- California: 72 events listed
- Florida: 55 events listed
- Mid Atlantic Region: 110 events listed
- New England Region: 54 events listed
And those are just a few examples 🙂 Find your region / state's event listings HERE . If you haven't yet listed your upcoming event(s), I hope you will 🙂
ANWAY: Enough about that! I went back & sorted our entries via date stamp so that I could be "true" to pick our random winner from one of those first 500 entries and we, indeed, have a winner!
Our winner is: Shirley Mast!
Shirley is a Creative Memories Consultant from the Mid-Atlantic regions of the US. She posted her Quarryville, PA September Fall Scrapbooking Weekend event on our Mid-Atlantic Paper Crafting Event listing…. So now she has the opportunity to promote the event of her choice via PaperCrafter's Corner to our fullest abilities 🙂
Shirley – Congrats! Contact me so we can do some brainstorming!
