Virtual Crop

Could we do one January 15- 19? That's a Friday-Monday. Gives us almost 2 weeks until the crop, and 2-3 weeks before Valentine's Day.

Otherwise I'd suggest the 30th-Feb 2nd, but the Superbowl is on the 1st. That doesn't affect me, but it might some of you.

(Granted, if my SIL has her baby on her due date, I'll most likely be in WI Superbowl weekend for the baptism, but there is no way to know at this point.)

Either way, let's decide on a date. I want to have a reason to have to sit down and get valentines made for my son's class.

I dunno. Weekdays work better for me in general. But I can always scrap in anticipation. Smile

I am good most weeks Friday through Monday...and if I am working a Saturday in there somewhere, it is only one day out of the crop. Even if I can't do the crop, the challenges always give me ideas Smile

The VC is for every one! I just did the one last month and it was fun to get some new ideas on things and have a good reason to do some stuff. Everyone posts what they do during those days and there are some prizes too I believe. Its fun! Its not quite the same as getting together IRL but its pretty close.

This means I need to organize my SB space before then :eek: We decided to move my stuff to a new spot in the office so that I could have more spread out room, and DH could move his desk back in here that his intern was using at church.

I don't know if I can do those dates ... but I will try! Natalie's birthday is Jan 19th, and we're having her party that day (schools are closed). My parents will probably be here that weekend to do a family celebration and my guest room is also my crop corner. So it doesn't look good for me ... Maybe the 15th and 16th I could play ...

Whoooohooooo, another VC! No input here regarding dates, I just participate when I can since my work schedule can be so random (though, I've been having Sundays off consistently and don't work till 5 on Mondays). I don't care, just tell me when it's happening! Smile

The January dates are pretty good for me. Having two weekdays and two weekend days I think is great! I work weekends, so having the extra Friday and Monday is helpful to me.

The 15th-19th is more a possibility for me than the 31-1st of Feb. - I'm away from home that weekend. Too excited to have another VC!!! Smile I've got an idea for a challenge, too!

Trina- Feb 1st is my Katie's first birthday! But since we'd only be having a family meal, and I don't have a tv for the Superbowl, I offered it out. I'm so addicted to scrapping.

Okay, so should we just call this thing and say Jan 15-19. Let's try 4 days. Extend the fun. Smile

I just realized the 19th is MLK day, so as a legal holiday I have no work! Good day for Karl to still go to daycare:)

Charys - do you have paypal? I'd like to contribute to the prizes since you're always paying for it.

you are so sweet Gwen (have I ever told you that???), but don't worry about it! Really! I enjoy it, and I don't usually spend too much at all!

But, if you wanted to do a challenge yourself and come up with a prize, you're more than welcome. Smile

I'm okay with any dates. 4 days might be nice since weekends are always hard for me too, but I really don't care.

Charys, I'd like to do a digital one again.

I hope you all have a great time. I unfortunetly will not be able to join you all because my mother in law as well as stepdaughter will be here that weekend and we are going to throw her a birthday party. I will try to stop in if I can but I am not sure.

But no matter what I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.

You can just post it whenever you want during the crop! It's your challenge, so have fun!

I can't wait!!! I'm going to create a 2008 in review mini-album, so I've gone through all my snapshots of last year and picked 1-2 for each month and hope to get that done during the crop.

If it's not in my husband's planner, it doesn't happen. Even if I tell him the same day. He has no memory when it comes to things happening from day to day. Seriously. There are days I've written MICHELLE NEEDS TO DO LAUNDRY ON THIS DAY UNLESS YOU WANT TO GO COMMANDO and the like. He actually appreciates it too, that's the thing.

Michelle, my sister is also pregnant and due in Feb but she will be delivered early in January. I am in Wi just wondering if they would being delivering at the same hospital? That would be crazy huh?
As for the crop I won't be fully moved in till the 30th but I really miss scrapbooking so maybe I could take a break and unpack one box. Smile

Tia- My brother is head of security at Columbia-St. Mary's Milwaukee Campus, so of course there was no doubt in their mind that they'd go there. I grew up in Milwaukee.

I always wanted to be invisible! Biggrin

I am so stoked for the virtual crop. Dirol My "scrap room" has been used as a dump site of odds and ends for 2 months now and I can barely get inside the door...no more...I am cleaning it all out today and never letting it happen again! Lol
Now I just need to find some old movies on tv that Wayne will wanna watch that weekend that way I can have the computer to share pages and look at your pages off and on all day too lol

It would be great if you wanted to create a challenge just for digital girls! Then I will create a paper scrapbooker challenge. (I already have a good idea for one actually...) Yes, go ahead and post it anytime after the crop starts.

Thats cool, my sister is delivering at Elmbrook Hospital. Do you still live in Wi or anyone else? Just wondering cause the scrapbooking expo is coming around so if anyone lives in Wi we should all go. I think it is in march but I could be wrong.
Oh and I can't wait for the train!!! Finally I got on. You girls are so bad cause I should be packing my scrapbooking stuff not un packing:)
We are going to the new house today so I hope to get a video for you all to see!

I forgot to check back on this thread ... I'll consider making a challenge then, all depends on how active I'm "allowed" to be that weekend. It's just a hard weekend with two birthdays (DH's is the 21st, so technically it's not that weekend, but Natalie's is) and a night out planned. DH gets cranky when I tell him I have a VC. He's playing poker the following Saturday, but that balances out my girl's night (sorely needed) on the 17th.

Can I ignore my kids the first two days of the VC so I can play? ROFL

Oh, and I'm CRACKING UP at being on the calendar as an invisible internet friend, that's great! So's the part about the laundry and going commando, love it!
