WHEW! We survived the holiday rush/season! I hope yours was memorable and filled with happiness and new memories (that now need to be scrapped of course!) I am thinking of starting a Creation a Day Challenge (CAD) January 13-27ish. I find that if we try to go a whole month we fizzle out so this year if you are interested I will be hosting several 2 week CADS. Anyone interested?

I would be interested. A month need seems to work for me. But 2 weeks is doable.

I'm totally up for this. I also tend to fizzle around the 2 week mark, so this is perfect!

YAY! So happy I was not forgotten and you guys are in! I will say that I find it easier to do these 2 week CADS with kits already made up, and my area CLEAN/ORGANIZED/PURGED. So what about you all?

For those just joining us I post a DAILY challenge of some sort the whole two weeks. We have our own gallery, leave lots of gallery love and knock out some creations (not just layouts either!).I always feel better when I am done. If you have any ideas please pm them to me as I will be getting the lists together this weekend!

Crystal 2 weeks is a great idea (although I can't seem to make it past 2 days. LOL) Count me in! Maybe I will do the Shimelle Kit trick with cutting up the papers etc ahead of time!

Hi! We did! We had a small no stress family oriented one this year. We took a staycation right here in our house and it was nice (although a bit annoying once cabin fever hit!) LOL!

Anyone else? What will you do to get ready? I am going to try to do some kits with Christmas pictures. i don't usually do Christmas but this year I ended up doing a 2 mini album series on our Christmas/elf/dds bday but there were some stories I wanted to expand upon so maybe I will sprinkle them in that challenge. I can't do too many at a time.

I really want to finish my October mini book and my December Daily. I'm going to go through and try to get all of my pictures edited/ printed. I'm incapable of keeping a scrapping area neat so I gave up on trying.

Bumping because of today's thread asking if anyone was doing a faux LOAD in February... It's earlier than you wanted but it is a good group. Crystal does a great job with the challenges.

I have to change the date just by a day, my parents are coming tomorrow through 13 so let's start on JANUARY 14th! Is that ok!?!?!? Sorry I forgot they would still be here and I refuse to take time away from them to scrap since I only get to see them maybe twice a year! I hope you understand! See you Tuesday!

14th sounds great! I may be absent that first weekend, but after that it's game on. You've also inspired me to take on a massive purge/ reorg of my scrap space. I've been scrapping since 1998 and I don't think I've ever thrown anything away.

I think I'm going to be waaaay more productive once I'm back in my scrap room and not scrapping out of a cart on my bed.

Hi everybody....I'll join as a CAD first-timer. I've been working on my craft room (clean/organizing/etc) and while it still needs work, my actual workspace is cleaned off and I already have a ton of kits ready....just need to print off some pictures so I'll have some choices.

I've seen previous threads, but never had time to join in. A two-week CAD seems like a great way to get some of my scrappy goals off to a great start!

Crystal - Enjoy the time with your family and I look forward to starting on the 14th....thanks for organizing!

Have a nice day!

2014 OLW: Simplify (also my 2013 word...still working on it!)

2014 Scrappy Goals:
1) Scrap more for me
2) Complete 52 projects (maybe even blog about them): 16/52
3) Six month spending freeze (Jan-Jun) except for adhesive, photo developing, and LSS kits (lasted two months...now focused on mindful spending)
4) Complete Christmas cards by end of summer so I'll have time to send them out!
5) Began process of scanning and archiving pre-digital family photos
6) Get craft room organized!
7) And finally....post more, lurk less....make Buckethead

Slyn11 -

Hopefully I'm not speaking out of turn (first time doing CAD) but I'm guessing the ultimate goal of CAD is to be productive and get projects completed. So, if that's all at once or one per day or something in between....any of those should be fine.

Any veteran CADers want to chime in?

I picked up some new page kits at my LSS yesterday so I'm getting ready....tonight/tomorrow I'm going to order some pictures and get them organized too!

In CAD there are no rules. The goal is to make as many creations (any crafty thing at all) in the 2 weeks. I put forth some starting points/challenges etc but you don't even have to follow them, they are just a jumping off point. You can make something every day, every other day, all in one day/weekend, or any combination. Ih ope that helps!

I'll be a first timer too !! Probably cannot do it everyday but it sounds like that is okay. Since I am normally such a slow scrapper this will challenge me to get more done and quicker.
