Usually I add a link to the new season in my tracking update, and I realize I forgot to. I thought I’d share it so that you can find it easier.

Friendly reminder to get your raffle ticket bids in by 11:59PM Central Time today! Most of you have sent me a message, but several of you still have a few hours left to submit your bids. The drawing will be tomorrow, later in the day. I am taking Mr SBC on a surprise birthday trip, so I will hold the drawing after I get home.

My Nerds!!! Long time no see! I’m so glad the Nerd Games has carried on, and want to whole-heartedly thank the crew who took up the reins! I appreciate everyone who was so understanding of my abrupt absence in the before times, and am so glad the Games didn’t fizzle.

Thanks to bunny1kenobi and storer for reaching out, too, and catching me up! I’ve been so out of the loop, I didn’t even know LC existed until last week! :disappointed_relieved: I’m going to try to post some projects, and life is also Very Hectic, so I definitely won’t be able to be as involved as I used to be. I want craftiness and the Games to have a place in my life again, though! I’ve missed all of you and am glad to be back in some form!

Last fall, we did different team names for the season. We had:

Resting Grinch Face
Gingerbread Mayhem
Up to Snow Good
Raking and Entering

We still have two months left of the summer season, but I’m starting to think ahead. Do we want to keep these team names, or come up with new ones?

  • Keep the normal team names
  • Change to the seasonal team names from last year
  • Let’s do completely new names!

0 voters

If you have suggestions for new names, please share!

Last year, @bluebird provided us with fun extra prompts with her advent calendar. Bluebird, would you want to do the same or something similar again this fall?

And one last thing… Team Paletteable Art doesn’t seem too popular. Do we want to drop to three teams only during our normal seasons? Or do you have a suggestion for a team name in place of paletteable art? If you have any suggestions for team names or fun activities we could do as a group that will keep things fun and active, please share your ideas!

I am not opposed to dropping Paletteable Art team as we currently have a small active group.
