for our international friends + giveaways!
Hi there. Happy Friday (and for some of you it’s already Saturday)!
I realize most of you reading this are in the United States. Hello to you too, of course! Feel free to keep reading, but this post really is particularly directed to our customers, readers, friends outside the U.S.
That’s really my main message today. Why? Because I know you sometimes feel like you “miss out”. Sometimes we have a giveaway that is limited to U.S. shipping addresses only, for example. Right now our products are sold on Amazon (for a million reasons) in the U.S. and that makes getting “prizes” to other countries very challenging.
I want you to know, first and foremost, that we truly do recognize and appreciate your support. It has been so much fun to sense your enthusiasm for Project Life, from many corners of the earth. I don’t think you’ll ever know what that has meant to me over the years, and continues to mean to me – and to us.
You know, when we started this little company 3.5 years ago, the idea was that we would just offer a kit – or maybe two kits – each year. That’s it. So much for that simple idea! Now with well over a hundred different items, and things happening + growing faster than we ever anticipated, we are doing everything we can to “keep up” with it all, and so naturally there are frustrations, lessons learned, and growing pains along the way.
As we continue to grow, and as we work toward our goals of being better, smarter, more efficient, and more generous – you will see that we continue to make efforts to make our products available to everyone in the world. Our partnership with American Crafts is proof of that. They are able to get the product into retailers around the globe, where we weren’t able to do that on our own before. In May, when products are sitting on shelves in many, many more countries – doing giveaways without having to exclude non-U.S. addresses will be way more possible. We’re so happy about that, and we know you are too!
Again, please know that we love & appreciate you. Here are two fun things for you – our international friends:
GIVEAWAY #1. We will NOT exclude international customers from the Instagram #MiniAlbumCrush giveaway happening right now. If you missed that post yesterday, check it out so you can be sure to get in on that possibility of winning a Mini Album + Mini Childhood Kit! It’s officially open to anyone – anywhere. Remember: This giveaway happens on Instagram, not here on my blog.
GIVEAWAY #2. In light of my “international love fest” today, I’m announcing that we are giving away 10 FULL Digital Project Life collections! That means 10 of you who will be randomly selected will get to choose any collection you want (already on ACDigitals.com – OR – you can even choose one of the editions that has yet to be released!). The only rule? You HAVE to live outside the U.S. for this one. : )
To enter for a chance at winning a full digital collection of Project Life, simply leave your first name + city + country + the edition you prefer. We’ll announce those 10 winners here at the bottom of this post on Monday sometime.
