My Questions and Your Answers?

For the most part, I've been using this blog as a journal of what I'm making and what's going on in my world. Every once in a while I've shared a tutorial or product review.

Would you mind answering a couple of questions for me? Your answers will help me to make the best use of my time.

Question One: I've started working on a post about organizing. Is that something you are interested in? There is a lot of craft storage information already out there and I'm trying to decide if anybody really wants to see my take on it.

Question Two: Would you like to see me do a step by step color pencil tutorial like that card I made here.

Question Three: I've been challenging myself to use stuff I don't always use. Is anyone interested in participating in an ABC challenge with me?

Question Four: I have a few things that I can either sell or give away. Do you want more blog candy? Contest? Challenge prizes?

Here's what you can do: Copy the text below and then click on comments and paste it in the comments section. Delete the part that doesn't represent your opinion. You can also copy it and email me your comments if you are shy. thecardcastle@yahoo.com

Q1 Show me what you got! (I love a view/rating before I buy!)
Q2 Do it, do it! (I don't know how to do it!)
Q3 I'm in. Bring on the Challenges! (I'm more motivated to do challenges with bloggers on my fav.list, than with the big ones, if you know what I mean!)
Q4 Where's the candy?? (for us over the pond, I have seen the suggestion that states overseas participants have to pay the shipping, which seems fair!)

Q1 Show me what you got! - your tips for moving supplies were fabulous!
Q2 Do it, do it! (I love that look, share it with others as I've had the opportunity to learn in person : )
Q3 I'm in. Bring on the Challenges! -or- I don't have the time, just show yours. Can I answer both? My movers start packing us in about 3 weeks, so I'll have no time for a while but might like to try it after we get settled in our new home.
Q4 Where's the candy?? Having been a recipient in the past of your generosity, I know how fun it is to get a surprise from you!

Q1 Show me what you got! - I loved to read your moving tips, those were some great things you had to say.

Q2 Do it, do it! - I would love to see how you made this card or something like it. The card you linked is beautiful!

Q3 I'm in. Bring on the Challenges! I'm participating in a Deck of Me challenge and I'm finding these are a lot of fun, plus this motivates me to do something I wouldn't normally do.

Q4 Where's the candy?? You should do what is easiest for you.

I hope these answers help you out!

Q2 Do it, do it! I tried to use my Prisma pencils on dark cardstock for a swap card recently. OK, but I know with instruction I could do better.

Q4 Where's the candy?? Fun, fun!

Q3 I'm in. Bring on the Challenges! Never done one but would do yours, natch.

Dawn Bibbs said...

Hey there. I think this post went right on by me...not sure how I missed it. Ok, here's my take on your ?'s.

Q1 Show me what you got! Being that I'm in the process of decorating a craft room, I'm all over orgainizing ideas.

Q2 Don't worry about it Jacki, go take a nap. :-) Sorry, but I'm not really into the whole colored pencil thing. So this particular part isn't of interest to me.

Q3 I'm in. Bring on the Challenges! Ok, I SAY bring it on...but I'm a little nervous about this one. But I'll see whatcha got...

Q4 Where's the candy?? Let's see it!!

Alrighty...I'm waiting :-).

Q2 Do it, do it! Definitely!
Q3 - I don't have the time, just show yours.
Q4 Where's the candy??

Nise on GW said...

Q1 - Show me
Q2 - OH YEAH! but that nap sounds good
Q3 - No time, but I want to see your stuff
Q4 - Candy for sure, especially if you & your Mr. are doing another CD.

Q1 Show me what you got! Even after one has totally organized one's room, suddenly something new is purchased, or a collection outgrows its storage place, etc.

Q2 Do it, do it! I learned with voice lessons that teaching is very individual; one person's method/vocabulary work for one person, for another they don't help at all. That is, your way of explaining things may make coloring (or whatever) more understandable than someone else's. Me, I am so far from getting it I think I honestly need someone in person to help me through, lol! If you do do more tutorials, remember that those who need it most are not going to necessarily assume correctly what kind of pencil/blender etc you are using.

Q3 I'm in. Bring on the Challenges! I love them!

Q4 Where's the candy?? It is fun to have to "earn" it in someway, even just for participation in a challenge, or organization idea that someone hasn't mentioned yet, etc. But, you paid for it all, so I think you should feel free to sell it too. :-)

Q1 Show me what you got! I LOVE organizing and I'm always interested in seeing what other people do.
Q2 Do it, do it! That card is SO beautiful, I would LOVE a step-by-step tutorial on how I can color like Jacki! :)
Q3 Unfortunately, I don't have the time, just show yours.
Q4 Do what's best for you.

Q1 - Show it. I live vicariously through others' organzation systems!
Q2 - Do it! I need to see how you do this magic!
Q3 - Put the challenge out there. Doesn't mean I can/will do it, but I love to look at yours!
Q4 - Don't need blog candy, but others might. I have too much stuff here that *I* never use & *I* need to organize! lol!

**Can't believe your boys are growing so much! My girls have just had a mid-year growth spurt, too, & we've had to go up a size in pants.

Q1 Show me what you got!
Q2 Do it, do it! This is what I would love the most. I just got my first prismacolor pencils and have considered buying a ticket to Atlanta so you can teach me how to use them. Step by step tutorials would be so much cheaper. :)
Q3 I don't have the time, just show yours. But I would love to do them every once in awhile.
Q4 Where's the candy?? Only if this works for you and is not cost prohibitive on your part.

Trish D said...

1 - Yes!!!! ANYTHING that will help me become better organized is appreciated. I know many people have posted their own systems/ideas, but many times they don't work for me.

2 - Absolutely. Can I borrow some of your DNA so I'm actually able to color like that, too?

3 - I like the idea, but don't know how often I'd be able to participate

4 - Of course everyone loves blog candy, but if you're saving up for a special tool or something then turn to the 'bay!!

Hi Jacki!

Q1: I would love to see what you have for organization ideas!

Q2: Color Pencil Tutorial...yes, yes!!! I can use help in that department!

Q3: I like the idea of challenges but am not sure if I could do them all. Sometimes, time doesn't cooperate.

Q4: Blog candy would be fun! Contests-Challenges sound great!

Have a wonderful evening!
