Dares and Challenges

Do you participate in Scrapbooking/Card/Altered Art challenges, sketches or Dares on blogs or websites?  I have never done so.  I think I will eventually.  But finding the time to play does not happen often.  I am mostly creating for assignments and publication.  There is a websight called Split Coast Stampers that I lurked on for a few years.  I finally signed on to be a member earlier this year.   They have a set of stamping dares called Dirty Dares 08. ( http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=40 for a bunch of challenges) It is about simply getting those fingers inky and playing.  I think when Maxx starts school this fall (Insert big Momma tears) I will pick a day and let myself play.  Because if I do not set time aside it will never happen.  Thursdays are laundry day.  What should play day be?  Maybe friday? Or should I start the week off with some me time and go for Monday?  This layout has nothing to do with my posted questions.  I made this about a year ago for Maxx’s sitter Donna.  She was great to him and I personally miss her.  She did more than just watch him so I jenjoyed doing extra things for her.

My websites http://nikimeiners.wordpress.com and http://365daysofcrafts.com Bio- Growing up in a small mid-western town, Niki Meiners was surrounded by a modest, resourceful and very entrepreneurial family. Her simple upbringing spurred her "Can do" attitude and gave her the confidence to try any challenge placed before her. She knew there was more out there than just her small town and set off after high school to explore the world. It was through these travels that she discovered her love of art and her desire to make the world a prettier place. It was not until she suffered a paralyzing illness that she realized she wanted to reconsider her corporate career as a Chief Paper Pusher, and her thoughts immediately turned to her first passion, art. In 2003 she began an odyssey that would take her from product design to publication and everywhere in between. She is known for her distinctive, high quality creations that feature a diverse mix of styles and highly creative approach to even the smallest detail. Niki is an Idea Architect, easily outlining every project from concept to completion. Her creations are simultaneously beautiful and functional and her in depth knowledge of the industry allows her to produce projects with a specific understanding of both the consumers and the manufacturers. This knowledge has allowed her work to be featured in the industries leading craft and lifestyle publications and manufacturers’ websites. nikimeiners at gmail.com
