I have been lurking in the ACOT 30/30 challenge. I am not a member over there, but have been inspired by some of their daily challenges and examples this month, and was wondering if we could do something similar on this board next month?
The way they seem to organize it is that they have 7 different hosts, one for each day of the week. The host for Saturday (for example) proposes a challenge--which may be a title, a topic, a colour combo, a sketch, a particular supply, whatever--and [usually] a sample to get things going. Then other people create something to meet that challenge at some time during the month. As a challenge is met, people [usually] link their creations to the challenge post for that day.
Some people take on the task of creating one project for each of the 30 days over there, but most seem to just do whatever they can with the time they have. And certainly no pressure on anyone to either meet all the challenges or to do that on the designated day.
I would love to try this for February at 2Peas, but don't want to do it alone. I would gladly take on hosting one day per week, but since I am retired I could choose MY day last. I am looking for SIX OTHER HOSTS. If seven hosts pose 4 challenges each, and if someone takes on each of those challenges, then that is 28-4-28!
A host would agree to do the following:
On your day, you would open a thread in which you post a challenge and an example of something you did to meet that challenge. You would do this FOUR times in February (say, every Saturday).
What do you say? If you are interested, please respond by saying which day of the week you would like. Maybe first and second choice?
If you don't feel comfortable hosting, but think it would be a fun activity, let us know that too.
Me me me me! I used to host 30 in 30 over at acot until I stopped going over there as much, no real reason. I'd love to host! I can do any day except Tuesday or Saturday. If you need me for more than one day I can do that too!
Yay! Looks like we've got our hosts! Welcome, Jane , lilacgal , and christinec68. We can continue our host discussion in a group PM.
More details to come to the rest of the board when we are getting a little closer to February 1st. But for now, get stocked up on whatever you need to play all next month!
28 projects in 28 days! Can we do it? I, for one, really want to try! And you know the saying about shooting for the moon... Even if the numbers don't add up in our case, we will still have had a ton of fun!
