Pounce News

Hi everyone!  I've been receiving a lot of emails lately asking that I note all sorts of requirements including when special images are required, enabling comment reactions, limits to the number of other challenges allowed, when guest DT spots are awarded... just to name a few!  Keeping up with these requirements takes a lot of time and energy and I'm honestly out of time keeping up with the challenge blogs already listed so I will no longer be listing challenge blogs with such requirements.

I enjoy making cards for family, friends and in support of Operation Write Home and want cardmaking and entering challenges to a fun and relaxing hobby!  If you have a favorite challenge blog that is not already listed that is open to all images and without lots of restrictions simply leave a comment with the name and a link and I will check it out.  Going forward I will only be adding new challenge blogs the beginning of the month.

I appreciate your support and thank you for understanding!

I am just thankful that you take the time to post the challenges, no worries. I like to look through them if I have a little time to play. Thank you so much, you are appreciated! :)

Karen, I would think if you tried to list all that stuff it'd turn into a FULL TIME JOB!!!! With no pay or retirement benefits! Not good.
I'm just thankful you're doing what you're doing - makes it so nice and you are very much appreciated.

Sharon said...

I am a fairly new subscriber and have really appreciated the list of challenges that you somehow manage to keep up with! I am so sorry that you have been given such unreasonable demands for something you have been doing for fun and enjoyment for yourself and others. I will continue to follow your blog and to pick challenges that I would like to participate in. The rest is my responsibility, as it should be. Thanks for what you do!

Kelly said...

I found your place here recently and love the lists so THANK YOU! I would never expect you to list all the details as well as the lists, that is my job to find out if I qualify for a challenge. THANKS for all you do and I am so glad that I found you!

Ashley Nguyen Newell said...

Thank you so much for all you do!

I run a challenge blog that is open to any kind of crafting using any supplies:

We just have a different shop that we are inspired by each week but you don't have to list the shop at all. Just letting people know of the challenge is ABOVE and beyond!

Teri said...

No hun, those requests are totally unreasonable! It's up to the players of each challenge to check out their rules and requirements. You stick to what you are already doing hun, and thank you so much for it too!!

Oh my goodness, I can't believe you would receive so many requests asking for more details about the challenges you list! You already do so much and it must take ages. I only found you last week and am grateful for the amount of work you put into this for us.

Have a lovely weekend and enjoy some creative 'me' time! x

Goodness me some people want the earth, they obviously didn't realise that you have a life and just do this out of the kindness of your heart.
I appreciate your lists very much so this is just to say thank you for all you do.

Hugs Ali x

Shelley said...

Wow, I appreciate all that you do now. I can't imagine how you get all that done. Thanks so much!!!

Ms. Jen said...

Karen what you do already is so wonderful. I don't know where you find the time to do just that. I couldn't imagine you trying to keep up with all the details. As your blog states you go there for those kinds of things anyways. I just appreciate the collection of blog address all in the same place for each day and you do more than that! Your right this is a hobby! When it's not fun anymore you tend to give up. There are several blogs out there that I can't follow on my blogger and I'm thankful that I can come here to click on them. You are so appreciated! Thanks for ALL that you do.

Hugs - Jen

P.S. You might wanna pick a DT to take over one day of the week to help you out too. Just a suggestion. I really want you to be able to keep this going!

Linda w said...

Hi Karen, you already do so much with the lists and it is a real time saver for me. I really appreciate it. Hugs lin

Seongsook Duncan said...

Karen, I really appreciate for all what you have been doing. I just started finding fun challenges and motivated from them by checking your blog. Thanks for even only adding new challenge blogs the begging of the month. Hope you enjoy more time!

WhichCraft said...

you do more than enough already. I can't believe someone would ask you for special requirements. I can barely keep up with all the blogs I follow or my own blog. For you to make a list of all the challenges going on in "blog world" is plenty. thank you so much for doing what you do.


Sheri said...

I have never taken the time to thank you for all you do and now it seems like the opportunity has landed like a big lead balloon in my lap. I truly appreciate all the time and effort that you put into this blog. You are my go to place to find challenges and I refer everyone I can to you! I know that it is a huge job....and you are doing a perfect job at it! Thank you so very much! :)
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! (((hugs)))
