So when does the official 2016 point breakdown go up?  Tomorrow morning? 

 

I'm hoping to squeeze in a bit of time tomorrow afternoon while DS is in kindergarten!  :)

The fun of Calvinball is that we make it up as we go so it will keep changing through the month. The basics are already up in the Rules thread: 1 point per page, etc. but the bonus points will be updated daily and all players can suggest new rules. So if your goal is to use up some old kits, suggest a bonus point for killing a kit.

We make it up as we go along. That's what makes it Calvinball.

you know the #13: try out for a Creative Team.....

I got a message here this past week inviting me to a site CT, one of the major sites/stores.... which I had to turn down as much as it pained me because I have too much in my hands.... (I can't believe I am writing this.. like, the validation of the mother of validations if I ever needed one was that I became part of my beloved scrap home site team....and now this..oh boy)

talking that I am in a site CT at the Lilypad already and in quiet a lot of teams...can I count my invite as another point? LOL

or I can try for the GIS team? LOL

 

I had a lightning moment in which I realize how the points go and that I don't actually need to do a page per rule...that I can use many of the rules in one page...so I am now counting.....

 

also , have to say, LOVE love LOVE that the whole thing got me scrapping the wedding.... I am not posting all in the gallery or you will have to quick me out for flooding the gallery, but I will make an album with the Calvin Ball pages this week and give access in Photobucket in case any of you want to see :)

I am of now buit will come back to go comment in the gallery as I saw that so many of you have left so many gorgeous comments in my pages...and the gallery is inspiring!!!!!!!

Suffering from total and complete guilt!!  I took the day off yesterday, didn't even climb the stairs to the loft, I did do some commenting on the gallery but did not pick up one piece of paper.  Although I needed the break, I felt guilty all day!  It feels good to be putting glue to paper again.... seriously, wth is going on?  I have never been competitive, ever in my life.  Guess there is a first time for everything..LOL

I know... this is addictive! But we only have so much energy. Sometimes we get to use it, but sometimes we have to refill the tank.

I have to say, even thoigh I didn;t realize I could make a page with as many "rules" as I wanted in the last week (or 10 days, I see my date of,my post) but I am SO SO glad I was trying to play even if only with one rule per page...I got pages done I really wanted to do for quiet some time....!!!! Now I want it to be next year soon so I can play and count LOL

I have a dumb question. Where do I sign up for Calvinball or do I have to sign up? I wanted to do this last year and then we packed last minute and moved and everything was in boxes FOREVER. It was like my scrap room was the last to get unpacked and organized. Thanks for the help

Hello.

 I'm new but Grammadee, Maribeth, and Justjac have been talking this up over at Refupeas....do you have to post layouts online to participate? I don't usually post my layouts anyway and that's what's keeping me from participating in Calvinball - which sounds awesome

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thinks this way lol!  But cleaning and ordering photos isn't "prepping", right?  (I checked my adhesive, too)

Starting with a clean desk and a normally organized stash is IMO good policy. Starting with page kits and sketches attached to photos is not for me... (and I was still 1st place in week 1 last year... top 10 in week 2 and then ughh forgot to submit my points)

So here is a stupid question - If today I do a layout and give myself a point for that and then get 1 bonus point for using more than 3 pics (I just took it from the list on the original post) = 2 points.  

 

If new rules get added say in a couple of weeks, can you then go back to the layouts from week one to see if you followed any of the rules posted later? 

 

Also, do we have to upload to the gallery to earn the points?

ctpea - I think (but I'm brand-new) that you can't go back and add points after the fact, just on layouts done after the new rules are posted.

 

As for uploading - I was told no - not required

No. The points stand at what they were when you posted. And no uploading is not required -it's all for fun so we trust ya :) but we would love if you do post so we can get our praise points... er so we can see everybody's work.
