The New Year’s Eve Scrap Bash 2013/14 is starting a 8 pm Pacific Standard Time on my Ustream Channel! ….(that is one hour later than my usual Friday night time)
Since this will be our 4th year doing the show we have learned a few things.
First, we recommend that you get logged in early. Ustream can be a bit crazy during the first hour but it generally settles down after that…..once the ball drops in NYC the traffic on Ustream falls off and Ustream settles down.
Next, many of you will experience Ustream difficulties….trouble logging in , blue circles, and getting booted. If any of theses happen we recommend that you don’t give up, try again after midnight on the east coast. If all else fails, the show will be recorded. I won’t be giving out any prizes during the first hour, so you can just sit back and relax.
Lastly, we average over 3000+ people dropping in to the show during the duration. As a result, we have to have the chat in slo-mo. That means that you will only be able to make a comment once every minute. I do ask that you retain from complaints about Ustream….everyone will be having some sort of difficulties. Let’s keep the chat upbeat and optimistic as we ring in the new year across the USA.
I will be announcing price winners in blocks after the first hour. I will post a list of the winners sometime on January 1. You do not have to be present to win as the time zones vary so much around the world and not everyone can be there in person. I have had several manufacturer’s donate prizes but most are gifts from me to Thank You all for your support during the year….my small way of giving back. Here are a few of the give-aways:
The Grand Prize is an Ipad Mini
A few of the other prizes are:
A Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Camera
A Winter Fairy House kit
The next set of Bird Abode Kits
Here are just a few of the other prizes. Thee are over 40 prizes in all.
I am so excited to get started on the Vintage Typewriter project as well. Don’t forget if you can join us, the show will be recorded for watching when ever you wish. To join us live, go to my Ustream channel. You can just watch as a guest or if you wish to participate in the chat, you must log in. To log in , you must create a Ustream account. It’s easy to do, you only need to have an email address and follow the prompts to set up your account. There is no cost involved to either just watch or to set up an account and participate in the chat. Even if you missed out on the prize drawing sign up, we will still have a bunch of fun! See you all then!!
