i would LOVE to see lots of baby projects!.. got a scrapbook to complete! ;)
My most favorite challenges are the inspiration and the recipe challenge and i am not too fond of sketch challenges.. measuring pieces is a pain! :)

Jocelyn said...

I am excited for all the changes!! I love seeing step by step tutorials and sketch challenges. Color challenges are also fun. I also like to see a variety of stuff...cards, layouts, projects. It's fun to get alot of inspiration from one place.

Dawn said...

I love sketch challenges definitely my favorites. Not always loving color challenges but always willing to try.
I like to be challenged so that is the fun of the surprise. Excited to see what you have planned

perezmom said...

Favorite type of challenges are sketch challenges and color combos. And a variety of projects would be nice - include altered, cards and layouts!

debbiebakk said...

Looking forward to this new revised blog site. I love challenges!
My favorite challenge is the sketch challenges, and color or themes added are good also.
I don't do many altered projects or cards, but if the challenge is there I will try it. Good luck and will be joining you weekly.

Jingle said...

I would love to see great ideas and new faces! I am loving the team you have so far and guest designers would be wonderful, too!

Dorrie said...

i love handmade goodies...

i love to see different kinds of artists and scrappers... fro the clean lined, perfectly measured to messy/dirty/misted kindof art..
so fun.. looking forward to the new faces and new challenges!!!!

Kelly Massman said...

Thanks for a chance to win some Jenni Bowlin stuff!!!!

I love challenges in general. Sometimes it's fun to combine 2 challenges. maybe color and a sketch (sketches don't have to be literal--just something to get started);
I love challenges with random prizes so everyone gets the same shot to win (i.e. not a popularity contest)

Lois aka katesmum said...

yahoo... challenges, challenges, challenges... and Mia... how about some of your favorite... ATC's... ha ha ha!!

Sarah Mullanix said...

I'm loving the blog and my faves are tutorials! My least faves are challenges that are monochromatic, it's just not my style! Thanks for the chance to win :)

lisaplus5 said...

i am so happy to see you taking this on Mia :) i would love to see tutorials and design inspiration to drool over :) YAY!!

Colleen said...

Since I love making flowers, you love more flower tutorials and vintage items as well.

Stephanie said...

I love all projects but I think color challenges are cool. Like using certain colors together or parts of the color wheel. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Jenn said...

Glad to see this blog up and running again! Congrats on your "take over" hehe

I love to see a new spin on challenges and I think my least favorite are color challenges.

Carly said...

So excited to see what Crop Suey has in store! I'm always happy to see sketch and recipe challenges, but any type of variety would be awesome! Keep a bit of wiggle room to be creative and let tons of people get inspired!

Heather said...

How exciting...Congratulations! I agree about the sketches but I'd also add how to make/add handmade elements as a way to use up your stash/save money. Challenge us to use a certain phrase, quote, embellishment or whatever in the layout. Those are just a few of my quick thoughts.

Michelle said...

Congratulations, Mia!!
I love color combo, vintage challenges,paint & misting challenges, and sketches!!

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

Congrats!! I love Crop Suey--I'm new (only had time for one challenge--but looking forward to more!!). I love any type of challenge. I do find that a longer period to finish the challenges are good (that way we can print off the pics...and finish the LO.). I'm new to this blog--but also to scrapbooking! I started in March this year....so I'm a bit slow when creating! LOVE everything though:) THANKS for everything!

Sharon's blog said...

Congrats and I am excited for you!!! I like challenges that make me think- creating my own embellishment, and recipe challenges to follow. I think small RAK's are nice too.

Amanda Ann said...

I am just looking forward to some super cool challenges!! :)

Helen said...

Lovin' the blog Mia! Congrats again!

I love sketches for sure, and anything that makes me think!!! LOL!! Thanks!

Marcie said...

I love challenges, contests & guest designers!

Cassie said...

I am excited to see Crop Suey back up and running!
My least favorite challenges are cards.
Please. No cards.
I like non traditional projects...altered items.

Michelle said...

I love the "recipe" challenges but I don't really care for the color combo or sketch challenges. Tutorials are ALWAYS great as well. :o)

Scrapaddict said...

Love this blog and looking forward to the changes!

My favorite challenges are sketches, next would be receipe and least are color/photo inspiration but I digress and play along!!!!

Thanks for a chance to win!

I like all sorts of challenges - color challenges, sketch challenges, inspiration challenges. I think it is great to see challenges completed in different art forms (cards, layouts, altered objects, etc.).

Looking forward to what you have in store!

My favorite challenges are color challenges and recipe challenges.

Hope to see some good ones from you.

Cindy said...

ruth said...

Congrats on the new gig! :)

My fav challenges are sketches and I love 'how to' tutorials as well. :)

Robin (Tqmnurse) said...

Congrats on your new adventure...
I love all types of challenges which make me think outside of the box.
I'd love to see tutorials especially ones which teach how to layer items.

I also enjoy recipe challenges, color challenges, sketches, round robin style challenges, use your stash challenges and green challenges which encourage the use of non traditional scrappy supplies.

Thanks for the opportunity.

Jocelyne said...

Woohoo Mia!!!!! WTG girl!! So happy for you. I love sketch challenges, how to's, I would love to see some baby projects since I am a Memere now. lol

Nicole Carro said...

I love tutorials, especially ones that can show you new ways to use supplies you already have. My favorite challenges are those having to do with using certain supplies, not a huge fan of color challenges. I look forward to playing along with the challenges:)

Sylvia G. said...

I love tutorials, especially ones that show you how to save some money. I love glimmer mist, so maybe some new ways to use that? Love challenges.

Keesha said...

I love challenges that encourage you to try new or specific techniques!!

Miss Cooper said...

I really love altered projects... It could be an altered household item, or altering an embelishment for a layout!

Candace said...

I would love to see more altered items and Home Decor projects!!! Can't wait to play along!

Connie said...

Little boy projects. ALways looking for ideas!!

Martine said...

congrats Mia!!! I'm sure with your energy and fun, this place will rock! I love sketch challenges, recipe challenges, techniques... I'm pretty open to it all! The only challenges I don't like are "themed" challenges, since it limits the kind of photos you can scrap (because the majority of my scrapping is limited to my trips and I'm not into the baby, children, family kind of LOs!)

Jessica said...

Gaa! totally forgot to enter a comment earlier, so I have no hopes at winning, but I adore sketch challenges & product challenges. Anything to get me to think outside the box. Looking forward to the "new" site.
Best wishes - Jessica
