WOW! That was quick!

Another helper!

Yeah! Now it's two down, 8 to go! Rox Arten is going to help out too!

We have a helper! Yeah!

We have our first helper! Aster Orchicz will be in charge of 10 of the shops.

Only 9 more helpers needed to make this hunt solid!

OOPS! Chang of boxes

Well it would seem someone is having a "Fun In The Sun" hunt in June or something, but they have a beach ball. Sooooo as not to cause any mix ups, we will plan right now to have a beach umbrella. Or we might even go with a crab. We'll see, but the ball is out!


Okay, there are a few things that need to happen for the next hunt to really happen.

#1. I get at least, at LEAST, 10 people who will help. They will be in charge of a set number of shops and the shops will report to them, not me, then the 10 people will report to me.

#2. The vendors need to do more. Be involved more. Commit to one day a week that they will help monitor the hunters chat so that people aren't stuck with no one able to help. OR do SOMETHING to help with the hunt so that it lessens the burden on those that DO commit to helping in the chat. ;) And realize that this is their hunt too. That me and the helpers can't do everything. That as much as we are doing, we are doing for free.

#3. That it all falls into place, because I'm moving my shop right now and have to do a full restocking of all inventory. So, it all needs to just work right... mainly I'll need to be sure of the help.

If you want to be in it, it will be first come first served as there will not be more then 100 again. This is not going to be a HUGE hunt, I MAY allow 150, depending on how much help I get. The more help, the more shops allowed.

Will bigger shops be allowed in? I'll allow some "bigger" shops, but they still must fall under the fact that they are more lesser known then a name that everyone knows about. If you are unsure where you stand, then ask.

Happy Hunting!

Yes, I'm going to do it again!

It is official. At least if things work out. I'll do it again.

Like the Spring Hunt, this one will be a full month. In fact, if things go as planned, I'll do one every 3 months, one for every season. So before was Spring, here is Summer, then look for Fall and then Winter. It will be a series of 4 for the year with each theme that of the season, not a holiday near it.

This one will be for the month of July. And as it is right now, it will have 100-150 shops, depending on certain factors.

Shops included will be ones that I've picked from applications or offered a chance at if they were in the Spring hunt and followed the rules well. There were a few that didn't follow the rules, didn't keep the eggs the same texture, didn't give a gift that said "This is what I'm about and what I can do." Those shops won't be asked back. Though that is not to say that if a shops is not in this one that was in the last one that they were 'bad'. I had a waiting list in the last hunt and before other shops are allowed in, they will be given first shot. Then new applications and current shops will be considered.

I am not deciding right now if a shop will be in the hunt, however you can leave application with me for consideration at a later date.

This hunt will be done a bit differently in that there WILL be more help. And I will be stricter on the rules. What do I mean by that? I mean if you blatantly do not follow the rules (such as those that re-textured their eggs when that was a 'rule' not to) you will be taken out of the list. You will follow the rules, or not be in it. I had plenty on the waiting list that wanted in that would have loved to have taken the spot of those that didn't feel the need to follow the rules.

Also, this is fair warning, for those of you that do not do hunts, or haven't done hunts, very often. Hunts send out a LOT of notices. These are to keep you informed on what is going on. If you can't handle it, then you don't need to be in a hunt. Do something else.

And keep an eye on the blog. It will keep you informed.

That's it for now. I may not put much here till after the Spring hunt is over, but thought it best to at least start the blog so that everyone knows it is going to go on.

Oh and so there isn't another problem, the hunt will be using a beach ball and an beach umbrella as the gift boxes. If you are going to plan a hunt for that time, please use something else. Thank you.
