Weekly Challenges And Calendar 2006

8 posts in this topic

Hi ladies,

First, I must say thank you to all who have been participating!! EVERYONE has been doing a FANTASTIC job :dancingcow: :dancingcow:

I've been having major ISP issues the past couple of weeks. We decided to change providers...this should all be cleared up this weekend.

So we will be back on track really soon!!

Don't forget next week will be the Ephemera challenge...it must be about you, it does not have to be vintage! Any color scheme!! Mine is about grocery shopping...it can be really simple or really elaborate!

Also, we should be working on Central America, for the Feb 2006 Calander!

Hmmmmm....I feel a digi freebie coming on....

Michelle

I am sorry about your ISP problems, but I am glad you are back with us. Having a wee bit of difficulty thinking about the central America theme, but getting there.

Thanks, Michelle. Was beginning to wonder where you went. Have been giving thought to your ephemera definition you gave me. Could get interesting! Have a good one! Glad your back up and running. :dancingstickman:

Just checking. Does this challenge have to include a pic of us on it anywhere?

Glad you're with us! Been wondering whether we should be working on the calendar ;-) Sure glad you didn't post it earlier ... I know I shouldn't be, but with the week I've had, I would have gotten stressed LOL! (I'm silly, I know! )

Good question, no the Ephemera does not have to have a picture of you...in fact it doesn't have to have a picture! Now how's that for a challenge!!??

Re Central America, if your having a time figuring out something, try using the colors from one of the flags!

Thanks ladies!!! :)

I missed the Ephemera definition - what in the world is this challenge about?

Basically ephemera is something that has value for a short time. In the usually accepted sense it normally refers to paper items e.g. an airline ticket is valuable until you use it...then it becomes ephemera. A stock certificate only becomes ephemera when you cash it in, whether it's 50 years old or was purchased last week. Yesterday's newspaper becomes ephemera today, so it doesn't have to be vintage at all. Vintage ephemera is considered more 'valuable' because it is items that one would normally throw away rather than keep for 50 years.


Juliet, this is the definition Michelle gave me. :)
