Great minds karen GRIN. I was thinking I needed to get something up for January!

Me too with the time - it kind of melted away from me last year. I have a goal to be more organized and time focused in what I do in 2011 though...

I like the sketches, but I was planning to start up a sketch challenge, for real this time!

For UIU I really like things simple, such as using specific items. I try to do the other challenges, but I think I try harder to get one done if I can just add something to a page.

Brands are good for me too, so perhaps one brand a week for those of us that have a variety, but that wouldn't stress out someone who doesn't have access to as many stores?

Using a certain number of items - that really helps break into my stash!

Holiday specific paper can be good too.

I was going to change the word 'week' I used earlier, but weekly might be good, at least for some months. It is a short deadline, so I would be challenged to make time to fit in one page if one of the items was something I really need to use up. Then a fresh challenge the next week might do the same. There don;t have to be too many challenges each week then.

I do also like what Becca started - the occassional 'brought to you by the letter P" etc. Those can be fun.

Things I really need to use: Chipboard, chipboard letters, letter stickers, tags (as always!), flowers, eyelets, mini books. stamps, punches, ribbon, alcohol ink, shaped brads, metal flowers & corners.
