Howdy Ya'll!! Ok so i am a little late in the day getting this post up, but I wanted to give maybe a little extra time for anyone who may have wanted to enter...
The farmerz got a goodie bag when they joined the club. The contents of the goodie bag were: a plain brown gift bag, 1 yard of brown ribbon, a 6x6 square of The Greeting Farm Sunny Glen paper, a mini bag of popcorn and one printed image of each digital image available here at The Greeting Farm. Their challenge for May was to make something, anything using at least one item out of the goodie bag. I did not tell them what the challenge would be "judged" on, just that it wasnt going to be on the prettiest creation! Now I get to let you know!! I want you to judge this on creativity. Who came up with the most creative use of the items they were given. The poll is in the top right corner so be sure to vote!! Voting will be open until Sunday and the winner will be announced on Monday! The winner will be featured on the blog and in the store in June! The will also get their choice of a discount or Munkie Money.
Without further ado (and without names)....
Here is Entry #2:
Here is Entry #3:
Again, most creative use of the items they were given!! Let the voting commence!

Howdy farmerz!! Hope you all had a great weekend! Just wanted to stop in and let you all know of a few upcomings things and an unfortunate change...
Lets just get the bad news out of the way... Wholesale prices have gone up, so unfortunately, our price has to go up too... The single stamps are gonna be $8.00 from now on. At this point, the only set that has gona up in price is Neverland (now $16.00), but I think the others will be increasing as well. We will be sure to let you know as soon as we do. BUT... Isn't it great to be a Farmer!! Remember, you get discounts and free shipping as a club member, which still makes Funkie Munkie Scraps the cheapest place for our favorite little stamps!! If you aren't a farmer, you can still sign-up! Just send off an email to email@example.com and we will get you instructions of how to do it!
The Round-up is gonna be this coming Thursday, May 21st 6:30 - 7:30. You will get your instruction sheet for a project (or technique.. I am torn between 2). This months round-up is only going to be an hour, as I have been struggling with some health issues. But I want to take this time to talk to those able to attend and find out from you what you are wanting. Everything from discounts, challenges, projects, techniques, etc... I really want this to be your group that you are really happy with! But next month, our round-up will be longer so we can all play!! And dont forget.... all The Greeting Farm stamps are 20% off that day! Even if you can't come, you can email in your order! If you aren't able to attend, you will get the project/technique emailed to you and any information you may have missed!
Last but not least... This months challenge.. As I said in the Farm News, take your goodie bag and make something. I have had a bunch of questions as to what I meant. You can use everything in your goodie bag, or you can use one thing, even just the goodie bag itself. I wanted it to be really open and really basic. It gives all of us a chance to see what each persons style is. It also gives me some direction. So please please please get me something. Just take a picture and email it to me by Sun May 25th!! And remember, I wont tell you what the judging is going to be based on, but I will tell you it wont be on coloring or "whos looks the best"... so get creative!!
Have a farmtabulous day!!

I have had a few questions about how the featured sets work... Each month we will be picking 3 stamps (either sets or singles or a combo) that we will call the "featured sets of the month". In the email that will be sent out, you will be told what sets those are... for one day during the month, and one day only, they will be available at $8.50 for sets and $4 for singles. For the rest of the month, you will be able to purchase them at $10 for sets and $5 for singles... As with everything else, if its in stock when you order it, it will be sent right out... If it is not in stock, we will be ordering more and will ship it as soon as we get it.
For this month, we didnt send out an email because we knew there were going to be many people who waited til May 2nd to sign up for the club. That is why I posted the info about the featured sets there. For the rest of the month, those sets are available for $10! I will be sending out the email tomorrow which will include the listing of what the 3 sets are again in case you missed it in a few posts down...
As always, these discounts are only available to club members. We will not be telling you exactly what day the sets will be at the $8.50 in the email. We will give hints in posts as to when it will be and on the date we select, we will blog post early that morning that this is the day. So when you get the email telling you what the featured ones are gonna be for the month and you really want one (or all) then be sure to follow the blog!!!
I hope this helps clear up any questions, but as always, send me an email at TGFFarmerz@gmail.com if it doesnt!
Have a farmtabulous day!!!!!

I hate number generators when you have people with muliple entries and you are having to make a list. I always feel like I decided when I put the list together. So I decided the best way to be fair was to put everyones name in a hat. I cut equal pieces and wrote em down for each entry they got (i.e. 3 pieces of paper if you did all 3)... Once I completed that, I had our baby farmgirl Kirsten (my 5 yr old daughter) picked the winner....
Congrats LYNN!! Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your choice of stamp set and your address and we will get it out to you (or let you know if its not in stock currently and when it will be in so you can decide if you want a different one now.. hahaha)
In other news, Stephanie got stuck in Atlanta this weekend so Farm News emails wont be going out til Wed!! But it will be worth the wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a farmtabulous day!!!!

After talking with Stephanie, owner of Funkie Munkie Scraps, today, I wanted to be sure to update the lower post on the discounts.
You will be able to use your Funkie Munkie stamp card with the discounts on the stamps. for those who dont know what a Funkie Munkie stamp card is... For every $10 you spend at Funkie Munkie (no matter if its on clearance, sale or not) you get a stamp. For every 8 stamps you get $5 off your next purchase (or whatever purchase after that). You can save up to 24 stamps for $15 off!
Now for those online farmerz... When you place an order through the Funkie Munkie online store, a stamp card will be stamped, your name will be put on it and it will be placed with you membership card at the store. You will need to keep track of how many stamps you have to know when you want to use it. At this time, we are still trying to work it out to see if we can set it up to immediately take off that discount or if you will need to call us with any order you are wanting to use stamps on. We should have that information by next week, so we will be sure to let you know!
Hope this helps clear up any questions!!
Posted by TGF Farmerz at 3:18 PM
So how exactly are the discounts gonna work?!?!?!
At the beginning of every month in farm news email will be a discount on The Greeting Farm products purchased at Funkie Munkie Scraps. What the discount is each month will change. One month it will be 20% off entire purchase, some months may have a higher discount, another month buy one get one of equal or lesser value half off (yes you can buy 10 stamps that way with 5 half off), there may be a pick your own month, etc... You will find out when you get the email! This discount can only be used once that month on any purchase you decide.
Throughout the month, there will be tons of chances to win additional discounts... additional 10% off, 20% off entire purchase, buy one get one half off, pick your own, 40% off one stamps, etc. You can win with the challenge/contest of the month. You can submit a project instruction sheet or technique how-to to win. You can win games played. There will be a lot of other ways for you to win additional monthly discounts, both in the store and online!
Discounts can not be combined with each other or with any other discount or coupon, unless otherwise specified (i.e additional 10% off).
Any questions.... send me an email at TGFFarmerz@gmail.com.
Rmember ~ Blogs, websites and Rockin!!

We at Funkie Munkie Scraps love our customers, including those who we don't get to see cause they don't live here in Greenville, SC. We also know there are some that do live here that can't always make it to the Munkie. So when puttin' together the TGF Farmerz, it was very important for us to find a way to include everyone! So came the birth of this blog, the TGF Farmerz email and some comin' soon tweaks to the Munkie online store!
Each month an email will be sent out at the beginning of the month with all the farm news, the monthly one-time discount, dates of any TGF classes scheduled, the date of the Round-up, info on the featured stamps of the month and anything else we wanna throw in there =).
At the Round-up, the monthly project instruction sheet or technique how-to sheet will be given out. It will also be available for pick-up at the store if ya can't make it or mailed out to those who don't live in these parts. Along with it will be the new guidelines for the new challenge/contest.
Entires for the challenge/contest can be submitted through email.
We have an online forum set-up through ning. This will be private and only available to those who are Farmerz. Once your farm fees are paid (no matter which plan you choose), you will be sent an invitation to the group. There you will be able to upload pictures of any projects you've done using The Greeting Farm products.(Keep in mind, that will be where we will pull work from to be showcased on the blog - always asking your permission first!) If you see something someone did and wanna know how they did it or what they used, you will be able to start a discussion asking. (I am sure everyone wont mind sharing!) If you have some great news or just wanna vent, need some advice on anything, wanna share something you learned or just wanna chat.. You'll be able to just start up a discussion! You will also be able to find all the latest farm news and goin' ons there. And last but certainly not least, you will find little games started there... And you just never know when there might be a prize for the winner! The farm away from home!
We will be sending out special emails showcasing new products and sneak peaks of whats comin'. They will also contain pre-order information! If there is a set already available that we are out of stock on, this will be your chance to let us know! We will be ordering product twice a month. We just ask that you keep in mind that it takes at least a month to get orders produced and to us, unless it's sets The Greeting Farm has released already and has in stock!
We are also working on getting all the stamps up on the Funkie Munkie Scraps online store. If you dont live around here, you will get your discount(s) in the form of a code that can be used once. You will also be able to pay your farm fees online.
And as always, you are more than welcome to give the store a ring for any info, questions, to place an order, check on the status or just say howdy!
If you have any more questions about how you can farm online... just fling an email to TGFFarmerz@gmail.com.
Until tomorrow... blogs,websites and have a rockin day!
