Default S2S18 Challenges

Here we are, just a few hours from 2018. Unbelievable how fast time goes by! Time to start a new thread for the coming year. Once again, I ended up deeply in the red this past year. There are always new and exciting stamps and toys to buy and we are certainly a bunch of enablers here on SCS. I have also noticed that I spend more time on SCS and Pinterest than I do on creating cards and artwork. I find that at times I grow a little stale and have difficulty finding new challenges, so I hope I can get some volunteers to take on a few challenges ........maybe once a month?

REMEMBER: There are NO SET RULES. This is all about helping you be more aware of your spend -to-use ratio.

Determine how much you want to PAY yourself for the following:
(These are just examples. Brainstorm what works for you)

How much will you pay yourself for:
1 double pg LO
a simple card

A complex card
5 ATCs
1 Altered Item
1 Premium Item (think explosion cards or intricate items)
1 Challenge (there are a lot of great threads on this Forum)
1 VSN event
1 Meet-Up event
1 Updated Creative Blog Post
1 Gallery Upload (this is one DAY - not Item. You upload Mon - Fri. you
get 5 credits.)
Participating/ completing a swap or RAK

Some people also pay themselves for non-stamping items (things they need a little extra incentive for)

1) working out
2) losing a pound
3) eliminating a bad habit (credit per day)
4) for each book read

How will you keep track? Some people (like me) have used an account book.
Others have designed Excel sheets to keep track on their computer.
It's up to you whether you carry the totals over from last year or not.
Every week, I and my team will be posting a challenge to get you inspired and get your creative juices flowing.
Let's have a productive and fiscally smart 2018.
