Heart 2014 CALENDAR GIRLS Blog Group - Full with 10 Members

We are the Calendar Girls... and this is our third year of existence. Who are the Calendar Girls? We are a group of bloggers who want to have a place where friendships blossom, creativity abounds, and encouragement prevails! In keeping with that dream, this blog group has been created so we will have a place to interact and enjoy being fellow bloggers.

The guidelines for this group are fairly simple:

1. Each member MUST have a blog (it’s a blog group, after all) and members need to post to their own blogs at least once or twice a week.

2. Each member needs to become a follower of the blogs of all the members. (It would also be great if members would place links of the blogs – a blog list – in the sidebar of their own blogs.)

3. Each member needs to visit the blogs of the other members at least once or twice a week and barring unforeseen circumstances, members should leave a comment on the blogs at least every week. (Encouragement is such a wonderful thing!)

4. I will open/host an SCS thread for the blog group (here it is!). It is a place where the members can post links to resources, challenges the others might like to participate in, information about publication calls or DT calls, blog candy, and such, etc. I foresee the SCS thread as a place of friendship!

5. Each month the Blog Group would have a challenge among themselves. One member each month would be the hostess of the challenge. That simply means she is the one who chooses the Challenge theme. It could be a seasonal theme (Autumn), a holiday theme (Christmas), a color theme (purple and white), a technique theme (embossing), a theme using a particular type of embellishment (glitter), an inspiration theme (a photo that inspires the creation), a special theme (anything but a card), etc. Each member would choose her own products and way of interpreting the theme. These creations would be posted to the blogs of the members on a pre-determined day.

6. Other ideas could be generated among the group for ways to strengthen the blog group and these might be added to the guidelines at a later time.

These are the nine members of the blog group:

April (SCS - Aprilo) April's Alley
Barb (SCS - barbaralynn) Barb's Inkin' into Retirement
Carol (SCS - momcgw) Lost in My Craft Room
Debbie (SCS - djones) The Ink Igloo
Jeanette (SCS - Forest Ranger) Cre8tive Play
Kelly (SCS - MiamiKel4) Sandcastle Stamper
Linda (SCS - ljhart) Hartstamping
Paola (SCS - Sama) That's Amore
Tami (SCS - BlueInks) BlueInks Design
Terry (SCS - terry0926) It's Totally Terry


Let's plan on having lots and lots of creative fun in 2014!!!

Exclamation January - March Challenge Themes

January
Hostess: Jeanette

If you’ve ever been any of the swap threads that I participate in, you know that I like holidays, normal ones, weird one, funny ones. EVERY day is worth a celebration. So, for this month’s Calendar Girl challenge, I want you to select a holiday that is CLOSE TO your own birthday and make a card for that holiday. If you need help finding holidays, check out this wonderful site. .

For instance, Barb’s birthday is in October, right? So she could choose to make a Halloween card, since Halloween is close to her birthday. Or… she could choose a lesser known (dare we say quirky) holiday such as National Family Bowling Day (the 11th), National Grouch Day (the 15th) or Dictionary Day (the 16th). Now please don’t feel like you HAVE to make a card that is for that holiday… just one that is inspired by that holiday. For instance, Barb’s Grouch Day could be a “Cheer Up/I Care” sort of card or an “I’m sorry! I really messed up” sort of card. Or the Dictionary Day card could include a flower punched out of the page of an old dictionary.

I hope you’ll have fun with this challenge. I’ll look forward to seeing what you come up with when we post on our blogs on January 28th!



February
Hostess: Kelly

February's Challenge is Fancy Schmancy Fabulous Fabric!

That’s right – we’re getting fancy this month with .... Fabric!
I thought we’d shake things up a bit and try something we haven’t done before and create with fabric – fabric scraps – fabric flowers, panels, and/or the whole card! Think flowers, trees, houses, even holiday ornaments, etc –
the choice is yours BUT ....

You cannot stamp your cards this month!

You may use a sentiment as a compliment to your card but the fabric (or fabric ‘element’) must be the focal point of your card.

You can do this, ladies! No sewing required! Glue, glue dots, Aileens, etc ...
show us your fancy, your schmancy, your fabulous fabric cards!

Let's do this!




March
Hostess: Tami

March Challenge

Oh girls, we are going to create a card this month! I thought of a few things that might keep us busy for March.

Did you know that March used to be the first month of the year on the Roman calendar? It was changed to the third month by Julius Caesar. The calendar we use today is refined from the Julius to the Gregorian. Sadly, we only gained like the wee bit of a percentage of more time to craft with the change! In theme of the original first month, let's use one button on your card.

Let's make a card based on a sketch. I saw this sketch and wanted to use it at some point. It's time! Please note, the sketch challenge is still open, so be sure to join!

Speaking of Romans, purple is the color of the day. Please use the color purple on your card somewhere. Purple was worn by Roman Emperors and magistrates. It is also the color worn by those cute little ladies you see out lunching together, wearing purple and red and a bunch of hats!

Since history was after lunch for me in high school, I really had to put my 'dig deep to remember' thinking cap on for this one! Here are the CliffsNotes: one button, use the sketch and purple somewhere on your card.

Hope you have fun! I cannot wait to see what you create!

Exclamation April - June Challenge Themes

April
Hostess: Carol

For you challenge this month I thought quite a bit about the challenge. As you know, we will be posting after Easter so with that in mind I thought I'd do a Mothers Day challenge. When I was a child my mom would encourage my dad to get little carnation corsages in pink or red for each of us girls and mom to wear to church on Mothers Day. According to her (and the intranet), if a woman's mother was alive the females in the family would don a red or pink flower (mostly carnations, but not a rule) and if her mom had passed, the female would wear a white flower, and would visit the grave of her mom and place a white carnation on her grave. My mom's dad would do this when she was a child and mom loved the tradition. What I would like you to do this month is create a card or project using the color that would describe your mom. As an extra I would like for you to share a special memory of your mom from when you were little (if you are comfortable with that) so we can learn a bit about the wonderful ladies who raised such beautiful paper crafters...

Good Morning Calendar Girls!





YAY! Miss February, Miss March, and Miss August are here!

Sweet P, I always like a new thread for the new year, but the downside is... I can't edit the posts now. I got the SCS boss to change the specifications on last year's thread so that I could. hmmmmmm... wonder if I can get her to change it for me again this year.

Kelly, I love your Awesome Sauce saying!

Tami, are you feeling any better? I hope so!

Aaawww, thanks for thinking of me! Yes, we are on the road to recovery. Went out of the house today for a quick errand. We arrived at the store and decided we had no business being out and hightailed it home! Baby steps.....

Barb - just so you won't think you're in the wrong thread - pfft!

Terry, how's the new job going? Seems I haven't chatted with you in a while.

Tami, baby steps are good. Take care not to over-do, okay? Hopefully you'll be feeling much better soon!

Good Morning--we all made it to Friday!

I have a dentist appointment this morning and stamp club this afternoon. I cannot wait as it has been more than a month since I have been stamping at Sarah's. I am hostess this month--YAY! We are going to be holding the orders until the end of the month so we can also order SAB items. Double YAY!!!

Have a wonderful day--and those of you in the east, please be safe. Maybe you can stay home and get inky.

Hi Jeanette!

My new job is going great! I am coding for the Emergency Department (the doctor part, not all the supplies and medications and stuff). The position is considered a "Coder 2" position....so after my 90 day review I will be bumped up to a Coder 2 and get a raise Yippee for me! I just finished training today, and was suppose to go to my clinic on Monday but there was a bit of a situation there, so I have to wait until a new room is wired for computers and phones. So, I will be traveling to Milwaukee for another few days to work in that office.

How are things going in your next of the woods????

Oh Terry, it sounds like things are going well with your new job. I'm so glad. Hopefully very very soon you'll have a shorter drive!

I'm doing well... just busy. I always think things will slow down after the first of the year... yea, right! They never do.

Good Morning--it is a wintery day in Wisconsin, but is the calm before the storm as they say. Temps to be in the low 20's today and then gets colder on Sunday--just in time for the Packer game. Temps to be below zero starting at noon and then -20 or so over night, with winds blowing 25 mph, making for -40 to -50 wind chills. Many schools are already closed for Monday by us. This weather is supposed to stay until Tuesday noon--so we will be hunkering down........................

It was not too bad. I drove to Madison to get the oil changed in my car and the tires rotated. That is where I bought my car last summer and the first service on it was just about free, so that is why I drove there. Also made a stop at Archiver's as everything was 25% off. No time to have lunch with LJ this time........ I am now going to take some pictures of cards I made yesterday to get a few blog posts ready to go.
