***IMPORTANT*** Switching e-mail and RSS feeds

15 Aug

Hi YCUers!

We’ve switched over to a format on the domain, so everything will look the same, but the RSS and e-mail feeds have changed. If you wouldn’t mind, please go there and you can add the new page to your blog reader, feed burner or you can subscribe to our blog via the feedburner box on the right.

Thanks so much for your help and attention to this! We’ll be back tomorrow with the announcement of our DT. :)

Introducing… Our Sponsor!

9 Aug

Since it’s only a week until we announce the fantabulous design team, I thought I would pop in today and introduce (or re-introduce, in most cases) someone that is very important to us here at YCU. His name is Simon!


Yes, that’s right, Simon Says Stamp has very generously offered to sponsor our monthly challenges with a $25 gift certificate to their store. They’re awesome. I wouldn’t back up someone so full-heartedly unless I stood behind them, and every experience I’ve had with Simon Says is delightful (and so are the people that work there).

I wanted to share a few things that are on my wishlist at Simon Says. Maybe you’ll stop over there and support them like they’re generously supporting us. :)













Hope you’re looking forward to the challenge in two weeks. We can’t wait to share! Thanks again, Simon Says Stamp, for being an awesome sponsor.

Something big is coming!

5 Aug

That’s right, monthly challenges for all of us young crafters (no matter in what way you’re young!) begin August 23rd. We’re working hard behind the scenes to assemble an awesome design team, secure some sponsorships and make everything awesome.

For now, make sure you’re subscribed to the YCU blog (on the right side of the site, you can enter in your e-mail address to¬†receive¬†updates or you can add us to a reader with our RSS feed links). We’ll be back in the next couple of weeks with the announcement of and introduction to our design team. These young crafters are going to rock your socks off! Stay tuned for more updates as this awesome collaboration evolves.

Also, we have a twitter! Be sure to follow us here: YCUchallenge. We’ll be updating that regularly and will remind you about challenge deadlines and upcoming events. :)

Hope you’re excited as we are! See you back here soon. :)
