I've got lots of photos and lots of old counterfeit kits to work through :) That is the most I'm prepared! I have to get printer ink yet but that isn't need at this point. Hoping to continue doing a page a day coming from LOAD. I've got alot of unfinished things around my room that I plan to finish up while I'm tiding up my room in the process :)

Um... March is tomorrow. When did that happen? Anyone else feel completely unprepared????

 

I don't have photos printed. Don't even have photo paper. Did no prepping. Not even sure if I have adhesive. Yep... this is going to be interesting.

 

Not prepared. 

 

I'm a digiscrapper and normally I don't need a lot of up front preparation. However, this year I have a new (now two month old) computer that doesn't have PSE installed on it, the memory card in my camera is maxed out with photos that need to be downloaded and all of my digital kits are still stuck on my old laptop. 

 

My attainable goal tonight is to get my library book renewed. 

 

My scrappy goal for the day is to set up a new photo library and download my most recent photos to it so that I have something to get started scrapping with! I don't have much hope for it, since I expect to not get home until after 9:00 pm or so (and I am no night owl), but I want to do something every day this month to get me back into the habit of scrapbooking, so I'm going to try.

Speaking of being unprepared....I have done a layout and have tried to upload it but I got a message I've run out of space for uploads.  Which is strangely similar to the message I get when I try to add a profile picture.  I feel very tech un-savvy....Is there a way to change the file size on my uploads?  These aren't high-resolution photos from a scanner -- just pics taken by my iPhone.

I did not prepare anything. I figure I will just go with the flow and see what happens!

I'm not prepared. I'm way behind on uploading and organizing my photos in Lightroom. I have kits that are unzipped but need to be unpacked from subfolders. In short, I don't know what I'm going to scrap . . . I have no plan! I'm rolling with it! LOL

Day one and life is throwing a monkey wrench already! The basement reno that we had planned on doing in May or so, will likely be starting next week. Great in the big picture, but given that my scrap room is right next to the reno site, it might not be great for my scrapping this month. I'll just have to make the best of it. Maybe I could make a crop kit that I could bring upstairs to the kitchen table. That might actually be more efficient.

Day one- we had severe weather, I checked out 3 kids from 2 schools (that took a hour!) then we had no internet at home for a few hours.  I took a nap, instead of scrapping. I did finish one page, and we had no damage from the hail/wind/possible tornadic activity, so that is a yay for today!

Completely unprepared too.  I haven't scrapped in about 8-9 months, but I know I have some kits with photos still made up from ages ago.  So I will start there, and try to re-acquaint myself with my supplies.

I'm so not prepared. First off is the severe jet-lag. My internal clock is topsy-turvy. It's 5:25 am and I've been awake for over an hour and I'm crashing after dinner. I am unpacked and laundry is done, in fact that may be the inspiration for my first page this month on the aftermath of travel! My craft room looks like a tornado struck, I'm almost afraid to post a photo and that's not the only messy spot in this house. I am trying to limit my scheduling of other things this month and I've set my goal of two page each week. It's a place to start! I love seeing how productive everyone gets and the ones who really win at this crazy game are so very inspirational!

Just joined yesterday & though I have played before (on an old yahoo site) I am having a blast reading through all the posts & comments to learn the ins & outs of how it's done here. So yea, unprepared here too.

Totally unprepared and late starting! I was so excited about Calvinball (still am) and had planned to do a ton of prepping during February, but that did not happen. Just starting scrapping this morning and am digging out some old kits..

Welcome to all the newbies, whether you are prepared or not!

 

I have never been good at getting prepared for something like this.  I have not patience, so if I try to put together page kits, I just want to go ahead and do the pages.

 

The good news is I have a huge stash and a ton on printed photos.  Also have enough glue to keep me going for a few more pages.

 

And better yet:  we can each claim ONE point for admitting how unprepared we are!

There's already a point for admitting to not prepping ;)

 

I think maybe we should offer a point per day for late starters (ie. you start on the 5th you get 4 points for starting late).

I've been sick for much of Jan/Feb so hadn't even thought about Calvinball - let alone do any preparation. Hoping that some of the stuff I'd expected to do earlier over Christmas/January can be found and scrapped. Plus, I haven't finished up the 2016 project life album we've done as a family project - so that should be quite good for some points, as long as I can find those photos that is...

Hope you are feeling better now.  And hope you feel like playing.  When a hobby feels like work, it is time to walk away and have a nap.

I barely remembered about it the last day of February, and I'm still moving into my craft room.  I am totally unprepared for Calvinball.
