Hi ladies!! The crop has begun and Kelsey already posted her challenges so I hope everyone is starting to feel inspired this morning 2 more challenges will be posted tomorrow, Sunday, and Monday so don’t forget to check back!

Also, there will be a prize for this months crop!! Nothing huge, just a couple things I’ve picked up but everyone loves new goodies The winner will be chosen at random by drawing a name at the end of the crop. To be eligible for the drawing you must complete all 8 (numbered) challenges by the end of the crop. There will also be a 2nd way to be eligible for the prize this month - or to earn an extra entry or two and increase your chances of winning and that’s through the games we’ll be playing!

We’ll be playing 2 games for March’s crop - the first will be Spring Bingo and Jen will be posting the word list and instructions a little later today. A 2nd game will be posted on Monday. Again, game winners will earn an extra entry for the prize but in order to be eligible for the entry you have to complete at least one challenge in addition to winning the game. So essentially someone could have up to 3 chances to win this month.

Anyway… Who’s all here and what is everyone up to today? Any plans for the weekend?

Can’t wait to see some new pages!!

Sounds like fun!!! I am so excited to see the rest of the challenges for this week!! Since I finally got storage for my paper and my paper sorted and put away I am definitely in the mood to scrap!! Going to try some stitching on one of my layouts this time I think. I am debating weather to do it with my sewing machine or to do it by hand. Any suggestions? I have never stitched on a page before. Hoping to get the first 2 challenges done today as I have to help move cows tomorrow and DH wants to take off for the day on Sunday. Hopefully I will get a little scrapping done Saturday and Sunday evening too so I don't get too far behind on this months challenges.

Thanks again to Alycia (jonnies_goodgirl) for making my sketch picture bigger!

Woo!! I am so excited!!! I've already done babyloves first 2 challenges!!! I'm super pumped I even finished a couple of Feb's challenges!! It's been a VERY crafty day for me!! I've made a hat & scrapped. We are super busy this weekend (Anson has a AAA exhibition game tomorrow, then Ryden's hockey windup is swimming 11-1 on Sunday & Anson has AAA practice 5:30 - 7:30 in a town an hour away), so I'm trying to do as much as possible today (everything but clean my house or put away laundry, LOL). I've had SO many hat orders, including some photographer props (I got an order last night for 2 baby cocoons, a ladybug & a monkey, with matching hats), so yeah. My house is SUCH a disaster!!!

Everyone sounds like they have busy weekends. I hope to scrap a bit this weekend. We need to paint our upstairs hallway this weekend and I hope to also take off the wallpaper in our spare bedroom.

For the most part I really like th changes that have been made to the crops, especially that we have a week to do them, but I have to say I'm not a fan of the way the postings are spaced out. I get once maybe twice a week to scrap (that hubby is willing to help more with the girls so I'm uninterrupted) and I'll be struggling to get to the ones that are posted on Sunday or especially Monday. I know a lot of the ladies on here scrap over the week, but I know there are a couple of us that cluster and do them all at once, and this set up is more difficult for me.

I've started one of the Friday challenges and hope to the ones for Saturday. I'm not a fan of the challenges being posted on different days either. I work full time and the only time I have to scrap is on the weekends. It's much easier to plan the pages when they are posted closer together. I usually can't plan the pages until all of them are posted. By the time they are posted on Sunday, I won't have time to actually do them. And definetly can't do the Monday ones. I cluster them.

Trying to squeeze in some scrapping here and there (between DD, cows, and cleaning). Have some stitching, embellishments, and a title to put on one and it will be done (or as done as it is going to get until baby comes in June). Working on a mosaic for the other one -- will see if I like it when I get it done. Hoping to get both challenges done before I go to bed....hoping!

Doesn't matter to me either way. Whatever works best for everyone else.

I too like having the 8 challenges since it is now a week long but I also liked when it was posted on Friday/Saturday.

Hey everyone, I just got off the phone with Carrie. Caden has bowel intussusception (his bowel is telescoping in on itself) & is in surgery right now, fixing that & getting his appendix taken out. He will be in the hospital for a couple days. She did give me her challenges, so I will be posting them for her, while she, her DH, & baby Parker are at the hospital with Caden. Sending get better vibes to Caden & calming thoughts to mom & dad!!!

Carrie just updated FB earlier (her hospital has computers everywhere) & said that the surgery went fine, & Caden will be in the hospital for 4 days. I'm about to head out of town for a hockey game, but if I talk to Carri, I'll update when we get back! I also posted her 2 challenges for today.
