SORRY BUT ....

So sorry, but there won't be a challenge this week - the Easter holiday has caught up with both of us and we just haven't had time!! Perhaps if like us you have family visiting etc you wouldn't have time to do it either?

Our apologies for not saying this before - which if we'd thought it through we could have. We are both finding it quite a strain to keep coming up with interesting challenges, and may need to use this next week to make some decisions about the future.

Wishing you all a very happy holiday weekend.
Linda & Rosie

Have a happy Easter weekend with your families!!!
If you decide to continue with the challenges, maybe just once a month would be less stressful- people could still complete it in a week or so, but a month would give you guys a break!!! :>)

Carol said...

HAPPY EASTER enjoy your breaks I know I don't join all the challenges but I love visiting and admiring and being inspired by both yours and participants creations!

It must be hard setting challenges but I for one hope you can continue challenges maybe 2 weekly or monthly??

ENJOY HOLS

I agree with ooglebloops. One a month would be ace! Know I don't join in much but that plan might mean more of us could attempt your fantastic challenges.:))

Happy Easter.
Was hoping to join in this week with having a few days off (even tagged 2 holiday days on to Easter specially)!.....What with you and TYI I am stumped!LOL :)
Hugs.

i tried my own challenge blog last year - it turned out to be so much work!! whatever you decide, i'll still be a fan of both of your blogs...

hoping you both are well and hope you have a nice holiday...

I am finding it difficult to do the challenges once a week as they are usually quite intricate perhaps it could be every 2 weeks or 1 a month. If you are having problems with ideas for challenges you could always ask for guest designers. Have a great Easter

Happy Easter ladies!

Denise said...

I think there are a whole lot of us in the same boat! Just not enough time to do everything! Here's wishing you a wonderful Easter Weekend.

Happy Easter :) No worries and I seem to agree with the ladies above. Perhaps even every other week challenges. Or a challenge to come up with a challenge. Thanks for all you do.

Jaqi said...

I agree longer tome between challenges may help, but as others have already mentioned I will still be a fan whatever you decide. I know you wouldnt come to any decision without good reason, and when all is said and done you both always put alot of work into keeping this blog running for all of us and we are very grateful , so we will support you in whatever you decide. Good Luck Jaqi xx

Rosie said...

Happy Easter ladies!! Don't stop - please! You're one of the last remaining really interesting challenge blogs out there... and if you're short of ideas, just shout out and we'll all chip in!! Anything to help out Rosie & Linda. =)
Hugs

happy ester weekend too!! see you next week!!

RubyMay said...

I for one would really miss this challenge as we never know whats coming next ! I agree about a monthly or fortnightly one...especially if it means we can still have ABAA !
...and I'm with Rosie on the helping out bit !
Have a wonderful Easter weekend girls x

Sue said...

I wonder if you might consider having guest hosts like some of the other challenge blogs do?? That way you could still have a challenge every week without the pressure of having to come up witrh the ideas yourselves all the time.
I also think I like the idea of more time to complete the challenge, gives more time to get your teeth into something!!

Lynn said...

No problem ladies, and a Happy Easter to you and your families, I have a busy weekend too and was kind of relieved LOL
I just gave up running a challenge I did weekly with a group I am in because after a year it was getting to be too much.
Like some of the others mentioned, you could have guest challengers like you did with Patty recently, or just have a monthly challenge. Either way I am ok with whatever you all decide, I am just so happy to have met you both :)

I love the idea of monthly. I did several challenges here, but found the week-long turnaround to be a little too quick sometimes and fell behind. Maybe announce the challenge, then give two weeks to complete, then spend the next two weeks showing them off?

Great idea for guest challengers, too. I hope something can be worked out, 'cause I love this site and the art you gals come up with; it would be a terrible shame if we lost that.

Viv's Visuals said...

Hope you all have a lovely break. Have not been here long and you can see that I can't enter every week so maybe the once a month idea might be something you could consider???? It would be a shame to lose such a great challenge site and I know everyone appreciates your efforts so hope you can work something out that will help you continue. Whatever you decide I thank you for the opportunities to try something I wouldn't have done before!

Melisa said...

Happy Easter, and I hope you have a wonderful visit with family. In one of my digital challenge groups, everyone emails in ideas and the host just keeps a list of them and pulls from it whenever needed. Maybe that would work for you? I love the challenges here and hope you'll be able to continue them.

Vicky said...

Happy & safe Easter to you ladies. As for the blog, maybe a fortnightly/monthly challenge might be the way to go...I love to check out the challenges here, but I find a week`s not enough time, & it must be hard to think of a NEW challenge every week LOL. Whatever you decide, thank you for all your hard work :)

lyn said...

Hope your time off renews your spirit. I agree with the once a month idea!
Still here,
Lynn Guinn

Maureen said...

Just caught up with the site, I'm with the others on time span and whatever you decide as it is a really good challenge site with good work done, it would be a shame to lose it.
