This idea came up in another thread - Thanks photocropper/Shelley - I didn't want to completely hijack that thread, so I'm starting a new one.
Were you stressed by trying to complete your holiday cards this year? Do you wish they had been completed before Thanksgiving? Join our Christmas 2005 Monthly Challenge!!!! Just complete 10 Christmas cards every month. If you finish your Christmas cards you can continue the challenge by moving on to Thank You cards (or you can mix it up and do some of each throughout the challenge). You can join anytime! Just let me know what month you want to start and what month you will be finished (depending on the number you need to make). You can do this any way you like - make 100 of the same card - 10 at a time or make a different set of 10 each month or make each card completely different and unique. I'll update this post to show the people who have joined us. Just post to this thread to let us know you want in. Then each month when you complete your 10 cards just post a message to this thread. I have always wanted to complete my cards this way since I don't really enjoy mass production.
PLEASE NOTE - THIS IS NOT A SWAP!!!!
When you complete cards for any month please post to:
Great Idea! I'm in.. I will start in January and I should be done by July. If I keep going after that I will be able to sell at craft fairs next year. This year I was only able to sell coasters and magnets and I was hoping to have more options next year. Thanks for the idea and the group effort!
Count me in! It was sooo stressful trying to get my cards done this year. I would love to get them done before Thanksgiving. I usually have all of my Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving but not this year. I didn't even have ideas on what to get at Thanksgiving. I felt like I could never catch up the entire season and I'm not exatually sure why.
Count me in! I'm hoping to get my sister to committ early this year what she wants for her company as well, so I'm not rushing to get everything done! I want to make 10 cards a month doing a different theme each month

Count me in, too! I ordered photo cards from Snapfish for my holiday cards this year, and stamped the envelopes, because I had no time to do stamped cards . . . so if I do this challenge -- I should be able to actually send stamped holiday cards for 2005! Great idea! Thanks!
Yes...Yes...Yes...Count this professional procrastinator in. And....I will be able to take the time to do a more elaborate card each month and have the time to get the supplies I need. What a great idea....
Thank you so much! You know it was so hard to get my Christmas cards this year!!! I have a 2 yeard old beautiful baby girl that keeps me on the go and on my toes. It was really a challenge to get things done with her because she also wanted to stamp. So with all that said I think you all would get a good enough picture of what I'm talking about.
I'll commit to 10 cards a month. I'll let my sister to tag along I think she is going to love this idea. It would be cool to start though knowing which stamp sets to use for our monthly Christmas project. I have quite a stash and I would like to use the ones that will remain in the big catalog. Let me know and thanks for allowing to be part of the group.

I'm in... I might not do all ten, but I just might. I have a feeling I'm going to need more next year than I did last year. Not to mention I make my friend's. I've also decided that I want new ornaments for me tree, so anyone else want to join me for an ornament challenge?
Okay, I have to jump on this challenge! I had done quite a few of my cards done in time, but my DH decided at the last minute to leave to go out of town, two days before we were supposed to. I didn't have time to mail the ones I had and I didn't have time to make the ones I had left to make. So, some people didn't get any and some are getting theirs late! Next year I would like to be more on top of things, so this challenge is perfect! Thanks for the idea!
I'd like to try this also. It was way too crazy getting them in the mail. I know some people manage to get done in November. I am hoping to keep up with birthdays and anniversaries this year also. I guess it's my New Year's resolution!
