OPEN CALL FOR LIME LIGHT DESIGN TEAM*OPEN CALL FOR LIME LIGHT DESIGN TEAM

Please read carefully:

From today until the end of June (Tuesday the 30th) we'll be accepting applications for the Lime Light Charitable Design Team. Members of this team donate their time & talent for such great causes as the Ronald McDonald House, raising money for children's playgrounds, the Houston Holocaust Museum Butterfly Project, breast cancer awareness, Humane Society Animal Shelters, children's schools...and we're just getting started.

If you are a reliable individual who would like to use his or her crafting skills to help and bring light to others, we would LOVE to see you apply for this team. In addition to the crafting team members we need two people who would like to join the team as a publicity director (will contribute a reduced amount of crafting in order to enable them to perform their specific duties) and a design director (for a new logo & stamp we want to create, as well as designs for the public website-will also contribute a reduced amount of crafting in order to be able to perform their specific duties). Please specify in your email application if you would like to be considered for one of these positions (and please specify which one).

Requirements for applicants:

  1. Twelve month commitment--one project is done per month (potentially except in the summer, when we've spread one project out over two months; December is not-so-secret-Santa, so not really a task month). A timely email should be sent to the group leader if an emergency arises & you won't be contributing that month.

  2. Active blog-if you do not have one, you simply need to be willing to start one. Team members can walk you through every step (it's very easy, I promise).

  3. Contribute ideas on our private site/messageboard--ideas for future tasks, ideas on what to create as well as how to create, etc.

  4. Follow team guidelines as posted on the private site.

  5. Prompt communication-this is a must. We make commitments to these charities, and it's important to be able to communicate what is expected when, and any restrictions there might be. A good deal of the time it's just communicating that you understand & are working on the task at hand. Communication is done by email & on the private site, and occasionally by telephone when necessary or desired.

  6. Email pictures of four of your crafting creations to: gotscrap@live.com. Pictures should include at least one card (with envelope) and one altered item. Include your blog address in the email, or that you are willing to start a blog.

  7. We'll also have a "trash-to-treasure" section on our private site so that we can swap craft items we're not using with other team members; you'll just need to take pics of and/or list your "trash-to-treasure" items (this doesn't need to be done now of course, it's just something we wanted you to know about; once new team members are announced the new ones can get started on this).

  8. Your first task will begin August 1st; so those who make the team need to have their blog up & bio written by that date. Also, it would be good for new members to get their "trash-to-treasure" items taken care of as mentioned in #7 before the first task begins (if possible).

Even if you don't want to apply, we'd sure appreciate your posting the above information on your blog. We want the best people to represent the team to these charities, and we hope you'll help us out.


As you can see, #6 is the information that applicants need to be concerned with immediately if they wish to apply. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, we truly appreciate it. We look forward to receiving your application!

Looking for the FREE ZONE (free blog background sites, free font sites...)

That information has been moved to the Imagine That Plus site so that this site will load faster (that one doesn't have as much, and everything is pretty much in posts & not at the bottom of every page so it loads at a pretty good rate).
