Attention all Smeared and Smudged Forum Members,
We have some very important news to share with you. After much consideration, Tori and I have decided to shut down the S&S Forum here on ning as of December 31, 2014. We are saddened by having to leave our online home at ning, however we are also excited because this will open up a new chapter for us and Smeared Ink.
We understand that there are many of you who also consider S&S an online home, where you have met friends, shared joys and sorrows, and grown as artists and stampers. Please know that we love you all and that we are not leaving you high and dry. We have a few ways you can still participate with your fellow S&S Members.
Our Smeared and Smudged Facebook Group will be the new location for all of our forum member happenings. The wall will be treated as Vent and Hoard (for those more seasoned S&S members, you know what the Hoard is). We would like to encourage you to post your projects, chat, and share with other S&S members on the wall. Feel free to also upload a photo album titled with your name to share your projects. We will still be hosting our monthly Member Blog Hops from the Facebook group, as well as monthly challenges, swaps, journal prompts, and other fun contests. We hope you will join us.
As always, the Smeared and Smudged Facebook Group is open to sharing of all stamp images from any company, and will maintain the same advertising rules as the forum. (Non Smeared Ink business members-stamp company owners, design team members, store owners, etc- are still welcome to share their personal projects, design team calls, challenges, and freebies, as long as they do not advertise product).
For those of you who are not Facebook friendly, and for those who want all Smeared Ink all the time, we invite you to join us back at Smudgy Antics, our Design Team Challenge Blog. Starting on December 1, our Design Team will be hosting a monthly Smeared Ink Anything Goes Challenge. The challenge will be posted on the first of each month, with daily inspiration provided by our awesomely talented DT! Check out all of the information at the Smudgy Antics Blog.
Finally, all of our wicked annual S&S events such as 31 Days of Halloween, 12 Days of Creepmas, Bloody Valentine, Skull Appreciation Day, and Smudgefest will continue to be held at the More Smeared Ink blog. The difference will be that the sign-ups and information will also be posted there, as you may have noticed with our 12 Days of Creepmas announcement. We hope you will consider joining in with these fun events, and don't worry, we will keep you informed through Facebook, blogs, Twitter, and our store site newsletter (coming soon!) when the event information is posted.
We would like to encourage you to begin moving your photos and saving any files or information that you may need off of the forum. We will begin hosting all events and challenges off-forum starting December 1, however the forum will remain open until December 31 so that you may continue to have access and so we can move all pertinent information to where it needs to be. Thank you to all of you for making Smeared and Smudged so wonderful, and we hope that you will join us at these other online locations so we can continue to share and see your wonderful stamped art. If you have any questions about anything, please feel free to email or message either Tori or myself.
