What do you all think...

Should I start a new forum for each progressive during the marathon or keep building from one forum???

Hmmm....seems like one running thread could get hard to follow, and would make it hard for people who aren't doing ALL of them, especially if we get chatty. I guess I lean towards separate threads.

I'm getting really excited. I keep reminding my husband that even though I will be home I will be "gone" all weekend. I'm going to try and get someone to scrap with me, too.

Do you have any other hostess volunteers besides me? I can do more than one if you want. I know you have your hands full with the baby right now!

Megan'slooking at her schedule, but for someone just to pop in and say I'm here I don't mind scrapping and hosting so I can rest or just scrap. I'm pretty sure my mom is onboard for baby sitting

jci! i think i am on for next weekend, unless i have to drive to NJ--my cousin ODed and is in the hospital not doing so well right now. And if she gets better she will still be in rehab for a while and they want family to participate too (i only have 2 cousins, we are all around the same age, grew up together, and are very close). But I should know by mid-week if I have to go or not & will keep you updated! I hope I am able to play and don't have to drive 8-9 hours 2 times in one weekend...

Sorry about your cousin Megan!

Stacey, I made a flower the other day by sheer accident and I loved the simplicity of it. I'll try to take a picture of it today (if I venture outdoors to do it; it's only 1 degree out there!) I punched out a 2" scalloped circle; then a 1" scalloped one (MS tiny scallop); I defined the larger one with marker as well as the center of the little one and voila! Sweet and simple. I did a different version of it yesterday. Amy (from supermoms) does a really simple one with her retro punch, too. I'll see if I can find it.

The reason I'm telling you this???? Perhaps if we're doing a marathon, the flower stage can be a simple flower to keep things moving right along without the stress of the flower stage!! LOL

Just a thought . . .

oh Stacey, I am sooo sorry, but I am not going to be able to play along this weekend, but for a GOOD reason!!! I am going to visit my girlfriend again in New Orleans. However--wait for it--I can host SUNDAY if you need help cause my gf works Sunday and I am just going to work with her cause Sunday's are usually slow. So I will should have wi-fi and can host a round if you give me a heads up. Preferably one btwn 11am-5pm. I am so bummed to miss the progressive weekend, but SOOOO SOOOO HAPPY to be going to see Kayla

Ohhh, Lisa we'll miss you. Maybe we'll run longer in the summer and do Monday progressives. I'll be off on Monday and could see who's available than.

Good Morning!!

I'm recovering from being sick...AGAIN! So tired of being sick this year! I'm planning to go put away my scrapping stuff from last weekend's crop and clean up the scraproom today so that we can have fun scrapping this weekend. I've invited my dd (9yo) to scrap with me, so we should really have fun with the challenges..we'll see how far she gets. First she has to get better, because I kept her home from school because she really looks and acts likes she's getting sick, so I'm hoping that a day of rest will give her a chance to fight it off!

Marci, Stacey was thinking of doing 9, 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock (eastern time) on Saturday. I've told her I can do the 6 and 9 pm on Saturday. I don't know how many there will be on Sunday, though.

wow, I think we'll get a dozen pages done this weekend!!

As a head's up, one of the possible steps in the progressive I'm hosting will be to make "simple flowers" -- flowers that are not fussy and "simple" to make. Here are some samples:

Sample Simple Flower 1 for Progressive By Provinca

Sample simple flower 2 for progressive By Provinca

Sample simple flower 3 for progressive By Provinca

You'll be able to make whatever kind of "simple" flower you want, but these are just examples.

Marci I'd love your help. So we'll plan on you hosting those and whatever else you feel like jumping in for. That'll be a big help for me. I gotta take the baby to my brother's house at one point Saturday, so maybe I can sneak that in when you host. Those times are tentative, but I think we can manage those.

Jenn I hope you get to feeling better. My son has had the crud for a while. Thankful he really didn't pass it on. YET??!! Glad to hear you recruited your daughter... if she's better.

Megan glad you'll virtual, virtual join us. I guess your girlfriend doesn't scrapbook.

Anna those flowers look great. Take a look at the flowers Marci posted too. They are very simple. Just a few circle punches with a pinch and a button in the center. I'll post yours Anna and the ones Marci found into step four for ALMOST every option of every challenge. Like Anna said earlier we don't wanna exhaust ourselves over too much flower and handmade stuff. Other options will be there if anyone feels brave.

Okay, I will do 12 and 3 Saturday, that will give you a big chunk of time all at once if you need to pop out.

I'm planning on picking out my themes and writing up my stories today. At least one I hope to change up quite a bit from our usual if that is okay!

FYI, not sure I'll be around for the first one if we *are* talking eastern time...I am soooo not a morning person. But I WILL be here for mine and will try to catch up on the early one as well!

Good afternoon

I am hoping to at least get 1 page dpne before this weekends over. I have dinner on the go & some laundry & yard work to do but the other stuff can wait until later when the kids go to bed.

I have started to unpack my things but it is slow going at least everything is in my room & closeby. I need to spend a morning this week organising. My shelves are being delivered on tuesday so I will have even more storage to fill.

If your front page is updated it is easy enough for me to turn it into a poll. Hopefully my Internet is working at home tonight and I load the polls and maybe write a step by step how to on posting polls.

Also I want your thoughts. I enjoyed the marathon style but felt every 4 hours was too much...do you guys think we could do 3 a day on Sat and Sunday?

I voted on all the polls listed...

I think have 3 challenges on sat and sun would be great....Maybe you could have an 1-2 hour break between challenges.... This would be a good time to straighten up scraping mess(I usually have a big one),potty breaks,food and just doing what you have to do...

I for one would love one on presidents day....But I would do one just about any old day.....hehehe I just love this challenge.

Stacey, as much fun as the marathon was, I would agree that 3 on each day would be good. It would give us some breathing room in between. I loved the hectic pace but I was totally exhausted after the weekend.

I'm on vacation the week of President's day so that would work fine with me.

I agree with Anna. I loved, loved, loved the marathon, but I had a hard time finishing up and getting my lo posted before the next one started....I would never have guessed that 3 hours between starts wouldn't have been enough time.

If we continue to do four on marathon weekends I think we need to stretch them to every four hours with maybe one longer gap to let people catch up/catch a breather. We would need to start earlier and/or end later but with people willing to host from different time zones it might work out.

sounds like Sue has caught the progressive bug! I loved having so many pages under my belt, but I only finished top to bottom two. I felt like I needed a vacation after the weekend, but when I'm in the mood for scraping I felt like the one a day left me feeling in complete and I was always pumped up and ready to do another.

Off to make more polls. I hope to have all winners posted so my prize patrol can do there thing.

Hey, friends, I hope you don't mind if I pimp my blog here. I have been on a few teams over the years and stepped away from that but am starting to miss it so I have decided to revive my personal scrappy blog. To kick things off I'm offering a RAK if I can drum up enough participation to make it worthwhile. If the interest seems to be there I would love to start up with some challenges.
Link is in my siggy if you'd like to take a look for details!

I always love this challenge when I can play...and even if I can't that weekend, it's still fun to play along with later. I would be in for a president's day marathon...it might keep me away from the sales :-)
