Last days Ladies...

To get your challenge posted to our comments!!
"Inner Motivation"

I am ALWAYS in awe some what you submit, and wanted to remind you that the deadline is coming... The month is coming to a close!!

What do you think?
Is one challenge and one tutorial a month to infrequent by us at The Story Matters to keep you interested??

Comment, and I will dig up a RAK! How about some AMERICAN CRAFTS goodness? If you are international, we will come up with something NOT shopped! :)

I posted my layout on my blog....thanks for the challenges. Makes me think "outside the box".

I'm glad you asked this question. I would really love to see more than one challenge a month! I really like this challenge site and its purpose as it helps me dig deeper into things I care to scrap about. (I don't have kids so the fuzzy wuzzy stuff isnt an option @ the moment!)Thanks for requesting feedback! Hope to see yall more frequently!

Christine said...

I'm glad you asked the question. I would love to see more frequent challenges. I guess my excuse is I keep "forgetting" about doing the challenge because I feel like I have TOO MUCH time. Odd right? Maybe an every other week challenge would keep me on top of things?

That reminds me...I need to get this one started! Even if I'm late, I'd like to do this one.

I enjoy the challenge. I hope to get my LO turned in before the end of the month (that is the deadline right?)

As far as frequency of challenges, there are so many out there that are weekly, it's hard to keep up with. I like the monthly challenge but I wouldn't mind biweekly either if you want to keep things moving along.

I think one a month during the summer is enough and maybe kick it up a notch in the winter. I love your blog!

As the mother of a 4 year old, 2 year old and 4 month old, one challenge a month is more than enough for my schedule to handle, lol!

I haven't played along with you ladies yet, but I've been following your blog. I'm a slow scrapper ... one challenge a month is more than enough for me. However, I do think a challenge blog needs to make more posts than one to keep us interested and to remind us to play along. It's so easy to forget about a challenge, and I think a lot of scrappers order their links the same way I do: those who last posted are on the top of the list...

During the summer, I'm usually too busy, not to mention I'm rather slow to finish projects, to do one a month. But I look forward to playing along once school gets started and life slows down. Then, once a month will be good for me.

I find sites which have more than one challenge a month help keep me refreshed. The more I see new ideas the more I think I need to scrapbook :)

Jingle said...

I think it would be great to see more. I don't actually enter much...or ever...but I love the challenges! I would maybe stick to two a month, though, so that it's not way too much. Tutorials are awesome, but they also take a lot of time to put together. Maybe you could do extra inspiration posts or something that is less time consuming to keep the challenge in mind!

Sara said...

Your challenges are so wonderful and I am so happy to almost be done with my LO :)

I would love, love, LOVE to see more from you guys- the inspiration you give is just incredible- I love that it is not the same sketch, blah, blah, blah- even though I love sketches too :)

xoxo

I think it's mostly that everyone is so busy with the kiddos home over the Summer. I really love the once a month challenge because it really gives me time to decide which story I want to tell.

I don't post my LO's but I do enjoy doing them. Once a month is good for me but twice a month wouldn't be bad either. Thanks for all the inspiration.

So far, I like this schedule we are having. One challenge a month is enough but 2 a month wouldn't be a bad idea. I just don't want that to be too much for the DT members though.
