We had 39 entries in total, and no new Playmates this time. Bit of a dip in numbers.
A bit of stuff about the Playground Challenge now. Firstly, you may have noticed that many blog challenges seem to have fewer entries right now. Perhaps the COVID situation is getting people down, I know my own enthusiasm for card making and also blogging is suffering. So, I'm hoping the slip in numbers of snippets entries is just a reflection of of what's going on elsewhere rather than the Playground sliding down towards its 'sell by date' As an example, today as I type it's Saturday 27th August late afternoon - and the last entry was on Thursday (thanks for that info. Mr Linky). Sigh.
That, and the colder weather, also set me thinking about Christmas and the annual bumper 'holiday' draw I've run for the past few years. It's a huge amount of work and I'm most unlikely to run it in future. This year seems as good a time as any to call a halt, unless there's some sort of miracle, which is as likely as pink flying pigs to be honest. Of course, knowing me I'll find some way of us having a very much scaled down Christmas/New Year Playground celebration - just not a whole load of prizes on an almost daily basis for two weeks which is so labour intensive. Making samples, writing and scheduling blog posts plus even wrapping and posting all the prizes seemed to take forever.
On a more upbeat note, little bit of Dudley news. He has offered his paw for treats for a long while while now - I've just taught him to give me a 'high-five' too. So adorable!
Love from Parsnip, a happy 'high-five' and woof from Dudley - and of course hugs as always from me. Stay safe, wear those masks - and keep on crafting.
