Maya Road is a well known company in the crafting world that was formed to fill a need for affordable and unique products in the scrapbooking market. They currently have a Guest Designer Call for art and I think you should send in your submissions!
Here’s some background on the company:
For The Journey Of A Lifetime
“Maya Road was born in 2003. My sister and I were spending the weekend together, and we went shopping for all of the latest scrapbooking supplies. As we browsed the aisles, we were frustrated by how difficult it was to find unique scrapbooking products and how expensive products were. We started chatting about products we wanted to see, and we brainstormed how we could combine our business knowledge and design skills to produce the unique products for scrapbooking. Thus, Maya Road was formed.
At first, we made limited quantities of these products available to other scrapbooking enthusiasts on eBay and through our individual websites. After much soul-searching, we decided to launch Maya Road nationally with 38 unique products at HIA 2004. Since then we have added over 600 new products to our line including fun lines such as our chipboard collections, sheers, ribbons, fibers and much more!
Maya Road was founded on a belief in each person’s creative ability and on the commitment to making high quality scrapbooking products available and affordable to everyone. We believe that scrapbooking and memory keeping should be an everyday event available to everyone.
We provide free ideas cards in stores, as well as free downloadable support information on our website. Our signature products are carried in over 1000 scrapbooking stores in the US, Australia, Canada, the UK and beyond.”
Here are the details on the Guest Designer Call:
Did you see that each designer picked will receive a maya road product pack worth at least $60 retail to design with? WOW!!!
Submissions are going to be accepted until the end of the day on April 16th, 2013 so get crafting!
I’ve just found out about a fun Mail Art Show and couldn’t wait to share it with you. My Facebook friend, Linda Summerfield Crispell, is curating a mail art show for Billy Corgan at Madame ZuZu’s, at the former Post Office in the Ravinia neighborhood of Highland Park, Illinois. Billy Corgan is best known for his band, The Smashing Pumpkins, and he has also been a producer, lyricist, writer, professional wrestling promoter, and poet.
Madame ZuZu’s teashop is designed to serve as a social hub for the community, blending tea drinkers with the arts. Drawing from Billy Corgan’s love of music from the 30’s, Madame ZuZu’s is a Chinoise inspired teahouse found in Paris during this period.
“I’m a tea guy and living in Highland Park since 2003, I’ve always wanted to open a salon like this for everyone to enjoy,” describes Corgan. “This is a place with no age boundaries. We hope to attract everyone from young students to seniors. With a blend of music, photo galleries, art displays and speakers, I think Madame ZuZu’s offers something for everyone.”
Please send your decorated envelopes to:
582 Roger Williams Ave
Highland Park, IL 60035
- The deadline for accepting pieces is May 25, 2013.
- The show will be up for two weeks in June.
- Envelopes should be standard business size#10.
- Envelopes will not be returned.
Please share this with your friends!

I recently came across an incredible magazine called UPPERCASE. I’m waiting on my first issue and can’t wait to be inspired by this publication that is “for the creative and curious”.
I found out about several calls for art for some of their special book series’. UPPERCASE is currently looking for some assemblage artists working in three dimensions for inclusion in their summer issue. Portfolio’s can be submitted here.
But wait, there’s more! This is what their email says:
“If you missed the collage call, there’s a brand new project open to all:
The Handsome Ransom Project
A note comprised of pieced-together found letters sent anonymously through the post usually signals some nefarious deeds, but in The Handsome Ransom Project we’re asking our readers to put their scissor skills and compositional prowess to good use. An observation, a motivational message, a creative and curious statement… send us your ransom-style note in the mail and we will publish the best in the summer issue and online. Submissions must be received through the mail (no digital submissions on this one!) by April 30. Include your name and email on the back of your note or send it anonymously if you prefer.
Looking ahead to our fall issue, we’re on the hunt for creative projects using or inspired by rocks, gems and minerals. Submit your links!”
What do you have to lose? Get on it!
