Default JANUARY challenge: Thinking of you

After much discussion, we as flybabies wanted to make sure our crafty time never gets totally taken away from us. We are wholly committed to our families and homes, but our creative side needs our blessing and attention too!

Once a month we will each take turns hosting this challenge. Sign up list below. Signing up ahead for a month will hopefully help us more easily keep this on our agendas. A different theme each month. When you sign up to host a month, you get to decide the theme and run the challenge. If we can keep the challenges a bit open and not tied to a particular holiday, that would be awesome, so all can feel welcome to participate! Love for February would certainly be open enough, b/c that would include anniversary and wedding! One card or many can be made.

Please come join us on January 31st as we share our "Thinking of You" creations on this challenge thread and also post our blog links if you've so chosen to also blog about your card!

Monthly Challenge Sign-up:

January: Thinking of you: Rebekah, luvtostampstampstamp
February: Food: Janeen, JaneenK
March: Get Well: Queenbea
April: Spring Snows: Lee, LuvLee
May: All about KIDS: Patricia, pcousins13
June: All about the Scraps: Misti, Scraperwannabe
July: Wordless: Kramomma

I'll take March with Baby if that's okay? I think of my pregnant friends, the first one will be in March. So does that mean we would post the cards on April 1 or March 1? I'm a little confused on that point. Like if Melissa wants a bunch of October birthday cards to look at on our birthdays does she host October or Septembter? This is like pregnancy math, lol!

that was kind of my issue...I originally wanted thankful for october to prep for november...and we hopped the thankful cards on november 1...but...I didn't want to do that...i'd rather make thankful cards in november, kwim...and since october is birthday, i went with that.

BUT, even if someone for example, decides to do november as thankful, we can always make Christmas thank yous. and hop those on Dec 1. and there's all kinds of thank you cards that can be made. fall theme, Christmas theme, birthday theme...

was my thoughts...i settled on birthdays cuz I will be celebrating all month long.

think of the possibilities...cards...and if cards don't float your boat, SB pages, PL spreads, cupcake & cake toppers, decorations, packaging, etc.

I think I"m really gonna like this.



that was just a peek into my head. now, I'm shutting the door.

I'll be honest, my brain doesn't like that the January blog hop is in February. But it can adjust.

Are we signing up one month at a time? So, I can sign up to participate in January, but if I know things are going to be crazy in March, I can not sign up for that month, right?

it's two different things.

(1) sign up to host a month - you pick the theme

(2) if you wanna do the blog hop for any month, let the host know by the 28th of that month.

does that help?

on your non hosting months, you do not have to blog hop if you don't want to, but if you do, let the host know by the 28th of that month.

to blog hop, yes. But you have until the 28th to decide to participate in that month's hop.

you can participate any month you want, blog hop or no.

sign ups are for hosting months.

email host if you want to blog hop that month.

Just thinking out loud here...but what if we have the hop on the 15th? We could advertise the hop on the 1st...the hostess could have a card ready then...the hop go live on the 15th...if there are prizes they could go on the last day of the month. Perhaps have one of those linky things where people can participate all month if they want to. If there is a prize...a blog post gets you two entries and a comment gets you one.

Just brainstorming....

True dat!

What about hop at the beginning of the month for us since we know the themes in advance? Have a linky for anyone wanting to participate? If there is a prize it could go to a linky participant.

That's simple....

What if a person doesn't have a blog? Can they make a card & post it in this thread on the day of the hop?

we craft all month long.

if I want to do the may blog hop, I contact you NLT the 28th and you compile the list of participants by editing the post where you threw out the challenge. see on stampstampstamp's first post...she has the mo sign ups...then she has the blog link list...you, as hostess, would have a new blog list each month after participants for the blog hop sign up.

The first list should stay the same once it fills up.

must be. dude. I just scanned the article. I DID go back & read...after I answered all the questions. geez...everyone must have the flu!

jk.

ETA - I was beginning to think I didn't understand what I read, so I went back & re-read it again!

I think sometimes we make things harder than they are...proverbial WE. I do that, too. I'm getting itchy about having to post the live links for the hop...but the only link that's most important is the link to the NEXT blog...and we should do links to the DIRECT post, not links to the main blog.

Yes...to the actual blog post...not the blog home page.

i am confused but it usually sorts itself out. I will host the February to be posted in March. Since everyone eats chocolate, candy, cake, V-day dinners etc...I will choose FOOD any kind of food on the card.

Once a month we will each take turns hosting this challenge. Sign up list below. Signing up ahead for a month will hopefully help us more easily keep this on our agendas. A different theme each month. When you sign up to host a month, you get to decide the theme. If we can keep the challenges a bit open and not tied to a particular holiday, that would be awesome, so all can feel welcome to participate! Love for February would certainly be open enough, b/c that would include anniversary and wedding! One card or many can be made.

A blog hop will be hosted the first of the next month to showcase our previous month's work. Sign up below for this also! If you don't have a blog or can't participate in the blog hop, feel free to share your creations in this challenge thread, otherwise, hold off sharing until February 1st ! Please send the hostess of the month (January is myself, Rebekah, luvtostampstampstamp ) your live blog link for the sign up list by January 28th . This will enable each of us to have time to put our blog posts together and have the full list of live blog links. Your blog post should include this list of participants that can easily be copy/pasted from this post. That way we can easily hop from one blog to the next. Feel free to include a little intro about the blog hop in your blog post and then that information can easily be copy/pasted from your blog post each month for any newbies reaching your blog and wondering what our blog hop is all about. Maybe someone who has some computer techy background could design us a blog hop button even!!!

Monthly Challenge Sign-up:

January: Thinking of you: Rebekah, luvtostampstampstamp
February: Food: Janeen, janeenk
March:
April:
May:
June:
July:
August:
September:
October: Birthday: Melissa, Mollymoo951

January's Thinking of You Blog Hop on February 1st Sign up:

Rebekah, istampscrap&craft | My journeys in stamping, scrapbooking, cooking, photography & life in general.
Janeenk, A Little Bit of This and That


Note: The bold text is information (or a list below it) that will have to be changed/updated each month when you are the new hostess. Of course, any of the info can be changed and edited as you see fit, but I thought this might help it to be a bit easier to just copy/paste the main post from each challenge thread for the next month. Then it doesn't all have to be retyped and we won't miss changing a date or name!!

So! Please help me fine-tune all of this information so we can make it as easy as pie for the next hostess to host!!! Any information missing that should be added? I'd love any and all input!!

Also, if you have never participated in a blog hop and want to see a little glimpse of what it looks like as a blog post, below is a live link to a blog hop I participated in last year. It's a lengthy post b/c the project was more writing intensive than creating and blogging about a card...so do not fear...our blog hop is not going to be writing intensive!! This just an example of the layout of a blog hop post!!

We can all sign up for the month we want right off here! That would be great! Then we sign up for each monthly blog hop on the main thread for that month. A new thread should be started by that host for that theme/month.

And thanks Mollymoo, you did a great job answering and summarizing! I appreciate it. Nothing like posting a new thread/challenge and walking away for a few hours. But I said I would get it live on Friday and so I DID!!! Worked on my OLW in this...no reason to procrastinate, just sit down and do it so you don't have impure thoughts about the company coming and the extra stuff you have to do that is preventing you from doing the fun things you had planned!
