Cocoa Daisy Call Out!

*** Edited to add:- If you are Durban based & can collect your kit there is no additional postage fee. R300 per month covers the cost of your kit AND postage from US to KZN!

I subscribe to the Cocoa Daisy kit club. There are a million kit clubs out there & I have no experience with any others, but I have looked into practically all of them & this one appealed to me the most. Things have worked relatively smoothly with them for the last 12 months & we were one of the first to benefit from a 20% discount as "group subscribers" - meaning that it's the most affordable way to scrapbook shop from the States "overseas" {ie:- to South Africa}. As there are 6 of us in the group that I co-ordinate we share the postage as all our kits fit into a USPS Priority Flat Rate box.
A happy discovery made early on means that there is still a teeny space left in the box & I get to squeeze in an add-on for myself monthly too! I pay for this obviously but we all pay one sixth of the shipping costs so this is the benefit I get from administrating this project. A postage-free add-on! We ALL benefit from the 20% discount & I have made some lovely friends through this little venture.

There is one problem though...

While I am happy to continue receiving the kits "ad infinitum" others come & go when their 3/6 month subscription expires & I need to then try to recruit others to fill their place. This is difficult as I don't scrap at a store {no need...} which means I'm not in touch with many other scrapbookers except via the Internet. If there are any other SOUTH AFRICAN scrapbookers out there {or anyone for that matter - neighbouring countries, etc...} that would like to join for a MINIMUM of 3 months {we only get the discount on a subscription not a one-off} then PLEASE E MAIL ME.

I am in need of one other person. The cost is R300 plus priority mail postage to your destination. Here is an example of the February kit!

And this is the yummy add-on on it's way to me!!! {it's the only one that's already sold-out so obviously there are lots of peeps who share my impeccable taste lol...}

Any of my current subscribers reading this - ie) part of the Cocoa Daisy Kit Club Crew - another way around this problem is that if any of you are prepared to commit to an add-on per month as well as a kit ( & pay an additional postage fee in place of the "missing person" lol...) this could work too...
