They are just really good people. A couple days before we launched Big Picture (not really having any idea how fast it would catch on or anything) I picked up the phone and called Drex. I told him what I envisioned and without even hesitating he said "we’re in — we’ll help you" And boy have they!!! You might think they are just an online resource for our supply lists, but they are SO MUCH MORE — they have really guided us as we have (and are still) learning to navigate this worldwide WEB thing. The have been a huge support to Paula with all that she gets to deal with and they have offered many resources to Kayce as she worked around the clock to launch the new site in January.
I of course love them for all of these reasons, but mostly for the fact that they try very hard to say YES to me. For example …
Way back when I was developing Library of Memories I asked if they by chance wanted to send everyone in my class a ScrapStrong bracelet to wear as evidence of their own ScrapStrong pledge I require them to take. They said YES (and YES again this year.)
Proceeds from these bracelets incidently support the Lance Armstrong effort, in his fight against cancer!
When I was madly looking for "tab and tag" options for my LOM class, Tricia (purchasing manager at SBC) called and said "Have you seen the new McGill punch?" — I said "no, would you send it to me?" and she said YES!
It’s awesome — click here to check it out.
When we re-ran Lisa Damrosch’s hit class, Product Playground I
suggested that Scrapbook.com build an optional "kit" for students — a
sort of "one-click" purchase that would bring all six categories of essentials right
to their door. Naturally, they said YES again —
Which brings me to my other point today. There are actually a couple dozen kits (pictured above) left-over!!
If you could use these items or know someone who could — I really want to help SBC sell these, so we can talk about more ideas — I want them to continue to say YES! I’m not asking you to buy something you don’t need — but if you could use a generous helping of rub-ons, ribbon, photo corners, bookplates, chipboard and brads — then I’ve got a steal of deal for you. Not only will you receive some great stuff in the mail, you will become an honorary member of the BPS "Just Say YES" committee willing to support the good people at Scrapbook.com and indirectly many of my crazy ideas!!
I’ve wanted to "call out" their support of us for a LONG time and just haven’t — there are so many people who have believed in us and supported us — and all of YOU at scrapbook.com are at the top of the list!!!!
