I am really trying to live a simpler, saner life as I find that I spend way too much time looking at blogs and challenges and so little time creating. Or creating to ridiculous times in the night ... like until 2 or 3am. So I've been perpetually tired and ended up really sick.
Having just spent 10 days in bed (4 in hospital) with a really bad bronchitis, I've had my clock reset. I don't want to end up crafting so late at night, so I've set myself a new rule .... only to look at challenges if I have time to make the card or layout! It will take a weight off my mind - one less thing on my TO DO list, and not having that "what am I going to create for that challenge" hovering in mind for days ... and then missing the deadline anyway!
I have tried to keep track of challenges in a number of ways in the past, but this is what works for me at the moment. A one page document, with the links set up, organised by monthly, bi-monthly and weekly challenges with start and duration of each challenge. I have pinned up a copy on my studio wall too. This means that if I find myself with some crafting time on a Wednesday, I can just click on any link that would be within the challenge deadlines.
If anyone wants a copy of this (in Word or PDF format, with the links), just email me and I'll send it on.
I hope to make it into my studio today ... and make one card. :)
