With all these great video on 2 peas this year how do you watch them? Do you log in every day and watch them as they come out or do you save them up and watch them all at one time?

I tend to have them on in the background while I scrap on the weekend. Kinda like having a friend in the room... so yes I am a horder!

I try to watch close to when they are available. My son makes that difficult at times. There are some that I skip though so it isn't like I'm watching a scrapbooking video everyday.

Both, it depends on the week/Month I am having.... Sometimes I can use it as a little bit of craftiness sprinkled throughout the week and then watch them again while crafting for the same reason you do, and sometimes I stock up and wait till I have time to sit down and watch them in a splurge..... just depends.

I log on daily and watch them as they come. My life is otherwise too busy to save them up and watch them all at once - never at home long enough for that!

Usually as they come out, but if I get behind, I tend to catch up on Monday mornings.

I can't stand to know that there is a new video and I haven't seen it. I watch it the day it comes out and if for some odd reason I can't see it then I watch it first thing the next day.

I usually watch them in batches so I guess that makes me a hoarder. I don't do it on purpose I just don't always have time to watch them so I get behind and then once I watch one I want to watch more so I will watch several at a time. I am glad there are so many to choose from this year.

I watch them when I find the time-- usually late in the evening-- on those occasions after my BF goes to bed, but I'm not tired yet. more 'hoarding' than watching daily, lol!

I watch very few. If I knew how to skim through a video like I could skim through a blog or post, I'd watch more.

I usually have the time to watch them daily, so I do. That being said, with Glitter Girl's being especially long and loaded late in the day yesterday, I haven't had time to watch it so I guess I'm hoarding hers til later.

I love watching them daily. I do skip the videos if the LO is not to my taste. I just don't have the time to watch EVERYTHING! It's great to have so many choices though.

I watch daily. I don't horde much of anything, but sometimes I will go back and re-watch the vid.

Hoarder here...I save them for before bed on Fridays and during naptime on the weekends. I have too much to do on school nights with three kids! And it's nice to know that they're waiting as a sort of reward for getting through another week at work.

@ Dancingfish. . .I will put on old episodes of GG while I am doing things in the kitchen. Like you said kind of like having a friend with you!

And I am a little of both. . .like I know that extended episode of GG is out there waiting to be watched and I am saving that for the weekend when I can really savor it. Lol! And then sometimes I will watch one while I eat my lunch. It just all depends. But I'm very grateful to 2peas for making all of the different videos available!

I love having a video a day to unwind with after work. It also gets me in the mood to scrap (altho I often get in the mood, then get thwarted by dinner and kids' activities )

Both. I watch them on the day they are released then add them to a playlist to watch/listen to again on the weekends while I'm scrapping.

I watch time every week night. They put me too sleep, best thing next to golf for insomnia. I usually re-watch them the next day to see what I missed.

It depends on how my phone is working. If it actually streams them right, I watch them daily. If it is being a pain, then I wait for the weekend.

I watch them while waiting to pick dd up from school via my phone. I don't watch them all, but I do try to always catch glitter girl, even if it's a week or two behind.

Basically I watch them on the day they appear. When I'm too busy, I watch two or three at a time and try to catch up.

I hate to say it, but I almost never watch videos. I'm just too ADD, I guess. I can talk about scrapbooking and browse forums for hours, but turn a video on and I lose interest and wander away.

I will watch one in the morning before work every once in a while, but most weeks I sit down to scrap, prop my tablet up on my paper cutter and watch them end to end. So I guess I am a hoadr.

I watch a couple a week. So, I'm not sure if I'm a hoarder or a daily plunger.

Um, neither. I watch one here, and another there. Not every day by a long shot, and I don't usually watch more than one or two when I do have time.
