I really like using the spread sheet but I am still old fashioned. I print it out in the beginning and then I hand write what the challenge is, after it's finished I write a Title in the "Done" spot and check it off when I upload.
For me, it seems to cement and help me remember what the challenge is (usually I can't play it right away) Writing just helps me keep things straight rather then filling it out on the computer. Like I said, old fashioned!
Funny how we all go about keeping track of things differently. I only ever look at the Master Challenge Thread. I always kept my progress on a Word doc. Each year I get better at streamlining my processes and this year when ever I have done the final upload for a challenge I now colour the relevant text in my Word doc pink.

And during HYCCT I recustomise my Favs Toolbar so I can go straight to the pages I need with one click. Given my issues with my non funtioning mouse this has been a tremendous help.

No mouse! That's horrid. I still remember a few keyboard shortcuts but when you don't use them all the time it's amazing how quickly you forget them. I hope you get that fixed soon.

Good morning everyone! Sorry I'm late! 10 inches of rain and 10 hours with no power is hard on the internet!

Challenge is up and the samples are AWESOME.

Go forth and washi! I'll be building an ark!

I can see that Lydia's moved them into the main gallery so they should show as soon as the gallery software syncs the changes.

But you're right, there are no attachments of samples in the challenge post.

Hi y'all.....sounds like another wonderful challenge...

Sabrina, that recipe sounds delish...I'm a big bread lover (as the size of my hips will attest to) so I will have to try it...

The neighbors farm field would be floating in ours if this happened here...we've had 5" in an hour but never 10...WOW...


How's the ark building coming?


Now I need to find that link for today...I have Washi...but am still on the lookout for 2...one with yellow smilie faces (never seen it except in my head)...and one with "Happy Birthday" which I have seen, long, long ago!

I know only too well what your going thru.

I have the Master Challenge thread on my favs bar and this mornign it doesn't work :S I get this message -

Invalid Thread specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator

Don't expect you to stop the Ark buiding, but just letting you know. I can work around this in the meantime.

I'm sorry - I had to rebuild that thread this morning when all the thumbnails went rogue. So you'll have to grab the new link for your bookmark - sorry about that!

I was thinking about you last night when it flooded!!

Okay. I'll reset the link.

I burst out laughing at your last line. I can recommend crossing any creek with a ladder if you have one that can span the distance, lol, but only if you have the nerve. 4WD's come in handy about now too!

Honey I don't have the nerve for ladders on dry ground, so I don't know how you survive all that madness!

All I know is my little BMW almost got us killed last night in that water!!

In all seriousness, I must add we were selective about what we did and when we did it. But there are times when options are very limited. You stay safe. I'll be thinking on you all day. My little heart is in my throat thinking of you driving thru water.

I've finished my card for the lastest challenge. It's very windy here so I'll have to wait another day to get a photo as I take all my pics outside. My next project for the day is cleaning and washing walls.

And the Santa Maria.... I wouldn't have known it was today! I only know the American holidays when the gallery mods get a holiday too, LOL.

And Thanksgiving, because the only time I was in the States was Thanksgiving and my mother had just come out of hospital after a heart attack.

Good morning, all! I finally had AN ENTIRE DAY to do nothing but craft away! I made six cards yesterday, and the envelopes for them this morning! I'm absolutely loving that one of the (previously unmentioned) side benefits of this month of challenges is de-stashing some long-hoarded supplies! I bought the clear envelopes, but failed to realize that I would need regular ones, as well. Thought I'd pick some up cheap at Hobby Lobby, but I wasn't willing to pay so much for so few and I have the envelope punch board, so I just raided my oldest one-sided dp stash to get some coordinating patterns for the cards I'd made, and went to town! Now if I can just find a clear envelope that the 5" square card and envelope will fit into...

I also had a minute (okay, five or six) to leave a few comments on a few cards in the gallery. Way too few, though - didn't make a dent! Hopefully this evening I'll be able to do some more browsing. You ladies are rockin' the challenges!

I'm only six challenges behind now (including today's). That's at least semi-manageable - as opposed to being HOPELESSLY behind like I felt I was yesterday morning! Have a great day, everyone! Try to stay dry, Lydia (and safe)! Hope everyone else is on the mend...

I wouldn't have known that! In spite of the fact that when my mother left France, she lived mostly in Canada till she ended up over here. We always loved seeing Christmas cards from her relatives in Canada because of the cardinals, which we don't have over here. We don't have that much snow either .

I bought the clear envelopes, but failed to realize that I would need regular ones, as well. Thought I'd pick some up cheap at Hobby Lobby, but I wasn't willing to pay so much for so few and I have the envelope punch board, so I just raided my oldest one-sided dp stash to get some coordinating patterns for the cards I'd made, and went to town! Now if I can just find a clear envelope that the 5" square card and envelope will fit into...

I also had a minute (okay, five or six) to leave a few comments on a few cards in the gallery. Way too few, though - didn't make a dent! Hopefully this evening I'll be able to do some more browsing. You ladies are rockin' the challenges!

I'm only six challenges behind now (including today's). That's at least semi-manageable - as opposed to being HOPELESSLY behind like I felt I was yesterday morning! Have a great day, everyone! Try to stay dry, Lydia (and safe)! Hope everyone else is on the mend...
I'm glad you had such a productive and enjoyable day yesterday, Sue. Next week I know that at most I'll be working one day, so I'm really looking forward to that! I have some sewing to do, it will be a good chance to try to get that done as well as some more leisurely card-making.

Being caught up is over-rated as it only lasts a day!
