Paper Bloggers Unite
 
We are a group of friends who want to belong to a steady group of bloggers that inspire, encourage and acknowledge each other as creative minds. This thread will be a place where we can ask questions, help each other grow our blogs and follow along on our creative art journeys. This group is open to any "creative blogger".

Thoughts:

1. Each Blogger will have an active blog. (Meaning you blog at least 2 times a month)

2. Each Blogger needs to visit his/her fellow Bloggers leaving an encouraging word or two. (You could become followers, sign up via email or just follow the master Bloggers List, which you can find below in this comment)

3. Each Blogger will notify members of prolonged absence as we are forming friendships and if you disappear, we would appreciate notification.

4. Bloggers are asked to share their ideas regarding the group which could potentially include challenges, RAKs, swaps or the like.

5. There will be a total of 10 Bloggers in the group. Please be an ACTIVE participants.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to being inspired, giving inspiration, being encouraged and giving encouragement.

Hi Michelle, I'd love to become part of your blogging group!

hpyscrpr2 08-19-2011 10:07 AM

I'm so in if you'll have me! One group that I'm a part of dissolved so it would be nice to pick up another :-D

Hi Jackie! Yes, the other group doesn't seem to be too active although I appreciate your and Michelle's comments on my blog.

acreativechick 08-19-2011 11:25 AM

This is great ladies! Over this weekend, I'll get a list going and we'll get this moving. :)

acreativechick 08-20-2011 05:30 AM

Sorry for the delay in getting our list together. My Grandpa passed away this week so it's been a rough week. Things are calming down again and I'm finding time to create!

I've started the list and looking forward to your feedback and ideas of what you'd like to see with this group. Have a great weekend!

mschoener 08-20-2011 05:47 AM

Michelle, so sorry for your loss. It's so hard to lose our loved ones.

As to the group, I think maybe to start with, while we are few, we might have challenges. As the group grows, then we might do swaps periodically.

hpyscrpr2 08-20-2011 07:59 AM

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss Michelle! I'll be keeping you & your family in my prayers Hun.

I like Margaret's idea of doing challenges & I'm always a sucker for swaps :-D

acreativechick 08-22-2011 10:57 AM

I love the idea of a challenge! I'm actually being challenged by myself today...working on an altered book page that is making me a bit crazy.

A good challenge is always one that pushes me outside of my comfort zone. :)

mschoener 08-22-2011 05:26 PM

Sounds interesting Michelle! Can't wait to see what you're working on.

I ended up having to buy a new camera. My old one quit working over the weekend. It got all kinds of weird lines running through it and when I took a pictures it all kind of ran together. I ended up buying a Nikon. I think I'm really going to like it.

acreativechick 08-22-2011 05:43 PM

A new toy Margaret! Have fun and be sure to post all your pics on your blog. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to "pose" my creations. Posting is a bit of a challenge at times as well with multiple photos. I'll get there eventually.

I think I would like to join your group, if you will have me...I need a commitment to get me structured again...

acreativechick 08-23-2011 02:41 AM

Welcome Soni and thanks for joining us!

I am so sorry to hear of your husband's passing. Losing someone we loved so deeply is never easy. I have found during the journey with my Grandpa's passing that my art (even if it's simply adhesive and paper) helps me through the rough days and gives me something to focus on.

I've added you to the list. Please feel free to chat with us here, visit our blogs and blog when you can. Let us know if you have any questions or ideas for our group.

hpyscrpr2 08-25-2011 06:01 AM

Hi ladies! My blog is updated with a special request....my friend Cody just lost his Mom to cancer & I'd really appreciate if you all could send him a card. Info is on my blog---thanks :-D

A big welcome to Soni! I'll be visiting you all today :-)

mschoener 08-25-2011 06:12 AM

I will do that Jackie. I'll have some time tonight to focus on a couple cards that need to be sent out.

Planning to update my blog later today. I've been busy working on my October Christmas cards and have 3 made so far.

hpyscrpr2 08-25-2011 06:31 AM

Thanks Margaret! Can't wait to see what you create :-D

acreativechick 08-25-2011 07:05 AM

Hi ladies! I'm curious...do you find that when you create with passion, your projects are amazing?

mschoener 08-25-2011 09:22 AM

I'm not sure if I would call my creations amazing Michelle, but I think when I really get into what I'm working on (could be passion), then it does tend to turn out better than if I'm just trying to throw something together. Lately, I've been trying to do more of the former, so I'm liking what I'm doing more than I used to -- putting added touches on the project to make it pop more.

mschoener 08-25-2011 09:26 AM

Jackie - your card is beautiful!

Michelle - I love your altered page and the link to the song to go with it.

mschoener 08-25-2011 09:27 AM

I thought I was going to get to update my blog at lunch time, but I didn't bring my book that has all the information in it about the cards, so I'll have to do that later this evening.

ScrappinCEO 08-25-2011 09:34 AM

HI ladies,
I'm Kelly. I have a blog and would like to join. I will tell you right now as much as I"m trying to keep current, my life is ultimately bizarre right now.

I think setting a challenge would be awesome.

Or maybe when we post something, challenge our other members to give it a shot - with their own twist, of course - with a week to showcase theirs.

ie I'd post something on Tuesday. Ya'll would have until the end of day the following Tuesday to post yours.

just an idea.

mschoener 08-25-2011 09:59 AM

HI Kelly. Would love to have you come join us.

For Michelle and Jackie, Kelly as well as Soni are friends of mine from SCS. We've never met, but they are both really awesome. Kelly always comes up with lots of challenge ideas. I like this one that you mention. What do the rest of you think?

mschoener 08-25-2011 06:16 PM

Hi ladies. I've updated my blog. Now to go round up some cards that need to be mailed out. Have a good evening.

ScrappinCEO 08-25-2011 06:48 PM

If we could get 15 to join, that would have each of us responsible for posting 2 challenges per month.

Uhh. . . with 12 months in the year, how do you figure that Kel?

hpyscrpr2 08-26-2011 07:41 AM

No comment LOL :-D

teamlilya 08-26-2011 08:23 PM

Any Room?
 
Hi Ladies- just catching up on this thread and you all sound so fun! I was part of another group that slowly dissolved. I would love to get going again and STAY current! Hope I can join you- I love the idea of doing SWAPS too!
Look forward to getting you know you all. Now off to stalk your blogs :)

mschoener 08-26-2011 09:47 PM

Hi Rosie! Welcome to our home. Michelle's been having some personal issues the last week, but I'm sure she'll be here soon to update the thread with the new members blog addresses. Great to have you.

hpyscrpr2 08-27-2011 05:28 AM

Hi Rosie & welcome to our lil' family! We're so excited to have you with us :-D

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend....I need to catch my breath---just got back from my morning bike ride :-)

acreativechick 08-28-2011 06:53 AM

Happy Sunday!

First, to those of us that live on the east coast, please be safe today. So far, just super windy and raining here in NH.

Welcome Kelly and Rosie. I've updated the first post of this thread to include both of you with links to make it easy to visit our blogs.

I love the idea of your challenge. How about we start a challenge on September 1st. I'll be sure to post here on the 1st with the details. :)

Be safe today and enjoy your day.

mschoener 08-28-2011 07:16 AM

Hi Michelle! That sounds like a great idea. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Just so you all know, I had to replace my computer on Friday. My old laptop which I've had for 2 years went wonkers on my. It was a refurbished one, but obviously had some glitches in it left over from whomever used it before I did. I just got tired of having to recreate all my Favorites and having to go look on "My Computer" every time I wanted to do something. I love my new one, but then I realized yesterday that my printer was NOT compatible, so I had to go back and get a new printer, and had frustrations until this morning trying to get it installed. But that's all fixed now. Yippee! Now I'm working on moving everything from the old laptop to the new one, so that may take me some time. I'm still trying to keep up though.

acreativechick 08-28-2011 07:32 AM

Happy that you are back in business with the cyber world again :)

ROROLEE 08-28-2011 10:36 AM

encouragement and sharing.....sounds so nice! I wanna join too! May I? :D

I am a graphic designer. I design logo, business card, poster, etc. All these are done by computer. Sometimes I draw manga or doodle on some scrape paper. Recently I fall in love with handmade project, such as card making!
I am very new to the SCS. Hope I can learn something from all other members.

mschoener 08-28-2011 12:50 PM

Welcome RoRo. Glad to have you join us. I'm so impressed that you do your own designs and drawings. I love Copic markers, so I"m always looking for things to color.

hpyscrpr2 08-29-2011 06:13 AM

Welcome to our group RoRo! So happy to have you with us & looking forward to seeing more of your drawings :-D

ROROLEE 08-29-2011 08:54 AM

Thank you :D
I look forward to contribute to the group and receive feedback on my work~ :D

acreativechick 08-29-2011 10:13 AM

15 bloggers, each doing 2 challenges per month equals 30 challenges.... aka 30 days in a month - sometimes with 1 day to spare :-)

You are thinking year... not month :-)

acreativechick 08-29-2011 10:33 AM

Welcome Martha!

And I see lots of numbers there and it looks like it might involve algebra......Kelly, once we hit 15, you can have this project. :)
