You might have noticed a whole lot of nothing on this blog for the past month – life getting in the way, but I was tagged on Facebook by Tami Taylor, who was wondering if there was a game of Calvinball in the cards this year. I haven’t scrapped at all lately and since I need a kick in the rear to get me going again, I think I’ll have to join in. Plus the fact that my 9 year old is obsessed with Calvin and Hobbes at the moment is a significant motivator!

For the uninitiated – this is Calvinball:


Celeste, Doris and I have been playing versions for years. Our version of Calvinball involves a race to see who can complete the most projects during a given month. Points can be accrued as follows:

  • cards .5 point
  • layout 1 point
  • 2 pages 1 points each page
  • mini album pages .5 point
  • altered item  – points vary depending on difficulty

Naturally, since it’s Calvinball, there are some interesting rules and cheating is encouraged. There’s blogging points and other ways of earning more points. Of course Celeste always wins so the whole point of the game as far as I’m concerned is to annoy Celeste 😛
