Question 2017 Calendar?

Is anyone interested in doing a 2017 calendar?

For our new folks, last year as part of my week 4 challenge, we made 2016 calendars and a base to hold them. You can see my calendar here.

If you are interested, let me know here. Also, do you want the same size? Last year was 6x6, was that big enough?

Do you want to do them monthly as the week 4 challenge or work on them independently? Whatever works best for y'all I'm up for!

I am very interested and I know me and the only way I will do this if I'm challenged. I like what we did last year but this year I want to make 4 ; one for each of my kids and one for my sister. So yes, sign me up!

I really enjoyed this so I will do it again. The 4th week challenge is fine with me; I was thinking of doing one anyway. I really enjoy the 2016 one we did. I would probably use the same holder that I did last year - but any new people will need that step.

I loved making the calendar, I would play again. My holder didn't turn out so I used a purchased 6 X 6 album, which worked well.

I would also love to do another calendar for 2017. I liked doing it as a challenge, too. It was a fun project.

I pooped out halfway through that project and never figured out the holder. I would play again, just to maybe finish. For me, I would work on a 4x6 size because I have a holder that size... Maybe 6x6 ? Have to dig it out and check.

I would prefer it to be an extra activity on the board, not the week4 challenge. But hey, I can go along with whatever is decided.

Holy smokes, Penny! Did those 12 months in a week?... and, lmao, because Daria's going to finish 4 of them, you're a beast D! Fortunately, the 3 calendars I've had on the shelf are perpetual and have reached, hmmm April. They were supposed to be for last Christmas. Maybe a challenge would help in completing some 2017 calendars. Looks daunting, though.

Lee - We've got the rest of the year to complete it. We did the holder one month and then we did 2 months at a time until the end of the year. Not quite so daunting after all.

Lee, calm down! Even Dar can't do that much!

We'll start in June on Week 4. I'll put out the directions for the base before that so we can start in on Jan/Feb in June.

Linda, I hear you about not doing it for week 4 for the rest of the year. I may also have another challenge for those not doing calendars.

OK. I am in too.
Lee - your comments are too funny.
Penny, thanks for understanding the spirit of my comment. You are so good about wanting to be inclusive - and even though anyone can jump in at any time and work at their own pace, it feels overwhelming to come into a challenge already underway and be a new person.

I want to add a suggestion that the challenge results be posted it in the customer gallery - at least at the end, post the "best of" each month from among participants... There are a bunch of people who look at the gallery for ideas, and maybe this project, being more paper crafty, and already underway before the holidays, might draw in some voyeurs who become players.
