Glad to have you again!

We all start out with a fresh slate on the first of the month, so new weekly and a new monthly. I'll be happy to put you down for that "week" of challenges if you'd like.

Good morning and Happy November!

Nov 1 Daily - part 1: set up your signature for November 100 points
part 2: We have a tradition in our family - you are not allowed to buy anything for yourself from November 1 through Christmas. So go to your wish list, clean out all the discontinued items, and add 5 or more items to it. Share those items here with us for 150 points.

And here we go with our first "something new" question: 1. Describe your "style" of scrapbooking, and tell us why you would describe it that way. 200 points
Remember, this question is only answerable (for points) until the next question is posted in a few days.

I'll be back shortly with the weekly and monthly.

Also, the point list is up. I had hoped to have to all updated, but that just didn't happen in time. Now that I am feeling human again (and my family is really happy I'm not growling like a bear any more ) I will have it for next month. Any suggestions?

Bonus Question 1 - I consider myself a Storyteller. I scrap to document our family's history and share the emotion of discovering new facts. I want to make sure my "props" fit the era and the story. I like to add a bit of humor in my journaling because we all remember the FUNNY stories. I keep my pages fairly simple to remind us to keep our feet on the ground and focus on the event, making it easier to imagine you were there too.
