Hey Elizabeth! Every school does recruitment a little bit differently, but I was wondering what exactly bid notifiers are used for? At my school, we are handed our official bid in a little white envelope by our rho gams, and we then go to the corresponding room with current sisters while most of the older girls do a mad dash to decorate all of our doors with welcome banners and signs! P.s. love the trippin' and sippin' background!

Notifiers are another super cute bit of sorority sugar that chapters use on bid day to welcome their new members. And one of my personal favorites! Most panhellenic’s distribute the bids just like your school does, then the PNMs run outside to meet their waiting chapter on a nearby grassy area/sports field. Or they run/walk to sorority row, take buses to the sorority houses. The sisters are waiting with the notifiers around their neck, or held on sticks, with each new member’s name on them.

They are crafted to match the bid day theme in shapes like footballs, anchors, sea creatures, sorority symbols, etc. They serve as a welcome souvenir, decoration and a name tag all at the same time. The new member’s “rush buddy” will have the honor of hugging her “rush crush,” welcome her to the chapter and give her the notifier for bid day photos. These chapters also have welcome signs, decorations, banners and more… Can’t have too much bid day SUGAR! xoxo ;)

So I'm painting my first cooler, and I have sanded the cooler and primed it. I've even started to paint it, but I'm noticing that the cooler seems rough. Did I do something wrong?

It sounds like you did not sand properly before priming. It’s a good idea to use a heavy grit sandpaper to get the finish off and a fine grit sandpaper for smoothing. You most likely did not complete the “smoothing” step. You may need to start over and re-sand until the finish is smooth. SInce this is your first cooler, consider it your “test run” and a way for you to work out the bugs. xoxo ;)
