Guess what?????

OH.MY.GOSH.    IAMSOEXCITED!!!!!

I am so excited to announce that I am going to have a.... are ya ready for this???
a Melonheadz Addict club!!!
It's true!!!!! and I need some feedback from you:)

I am going to transform my Melonheadz Exclusives blog into a members only site:) HA!
Here's what I will offer with a lifetime membership:)
* exclusive graphics
* lead time on what I'm working on
* Monthly coupon code for my Etsy shop
(and then as well for my own site once I get it set up :) )
* a numbered badge to display on your blog 
*prize drawings


Here's where I need your input:)
What else would you suggest, or like to see in an Addict club?
It's my policy not to check out how others draw, etc. and I am going the same route
with this idea, so your ideas will determine what all is included in the club :)
So....... leave a comment PLEASE!!!! I'm counting on you!

I hope to have it up and going by around the 15th..... just in time for Christmas!!!


WOOT WOOT!!!

Jennifer Reynolds said...

I know what I am buying myself for my birthday this month! A membership! Unwrapping a weekly Freebie would be fun! Characters holding boxes would make task card or flashcard sets much less time-consuming! So would characters with a variety of math graphs!

This morning I felt like a drunken sailor waking up after a big night. I think I overdosed on Clip art yesterday. Of course, I need to be in your club! Love the idea!

Kelley said...

This sounds like a bunch of fun! Is this aimed at teachers or everyone?

Vintage Marigold said...

Could we maybe get a personalized graphic?

veroouu said...

That is awesome! I love the idea. How do I sign up? I would say it would be very cool to see how you actually MAKE your drawing. Not saying tutorials, but rather like the creative / design process. But then again, that is just me. LOL :)!!

Rachel Lamb said...

well, I'm too excited to even comment! haha! I think having an exclusive area is great! I'm a member at another site that I used a lot when I got started and she has one set per month for members only. Another one I am in currently has a member only facebook page and we get a set each month that way. We also have a button on our blogs and each month one member who has the button gets the whole month's new releases! fun!

tobi :) said...

Well, I buy enough of these things it would cool to get coupon codes or members only deals. I like the idea of members only getting like 15-20% the day before they go live on TPT. I like unwrapping a monthly freebie for members only. I like tutorials for creating clipart (not like I would ever quit purchasing Melonheadz. I would like an "affordable" lifetime members for us who would sign up in this clubs infancy and then to create revenue for yourself, any newer members could do yearly memberships..Like those who sign up in 2014...Just suggestions! Girl, you must be getting some good quality sleep because this is a fantastic idea!!! Nice bean spillage!!!

tobi :) said...

Can I work for you, I will work for clip art :)

ivett Castillo-Levy said...

Love your idea... I would love to see tutorials and even classes that we can sign up for. I attended an online 2 hour session for back to school. I believe it was headed by Rachel Lynette at Minds in Bloom. Your graphics really do inspire creativity.
Hope this helps,
Ivett

I think it would be nice for members-only sets each month and then sometimes being able to purchase a set and get a set for free or half off!

Edwina said...

Sounds great. I hope it is not too expensive. I wish you had a creative freebie challenge. That would be fun. Edwina Brown

Can you feel the love Nikki? I'm so in - you can call us Nikki's Melonheadz :)

Once Upon A Classroom said...

And I LOVE the idea of an exclusive Pinterest board - our products with your graphics! Xo

Heather (TeacherBug) said...

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea!!!

I love the idea of exclusive graphics. Plus, I am really an addict, so it's like a club made just for me :) Just yesterday I bought 4 sets ... but had to stop so I could still afford groceries this week ... I need to keep my priorities.

I think it would also be really neat to do a type of teacher feature. It would be awesome to feature on teacher every month, and showcase some of their best sellers that highlight your awesome work!!

Kyp Mclaren said...

Me, me!!! I want to join your club!!
