Posts

We, the Paper Playful team of "volunteers", would like to remind everyone that these posts are brought to you in our precious "spare" time.
Many of us have full time jobs & families but willingly give up what little time we have left in our day to bring you updated lists of challenges.
We cannot guarantee to have them done by a specific time of day as life often gets in the way. The challenges we list for you also update at different times of the day.


Thanks
The VOLUNTEERS of Paper Playful

Other Date Challenges

  Hi! Kylie here with the Other Date Challenges. Most challenges begin on a specific day of the week BUT some begin on a specific date of the month. Those are what we call Other Date Challenges. For the ones that haven't been announced yet, the team will do our best to complete these once they have been posted. Because we post our Other Dates Challenges four times a month, some posts might not be updated on their specific posting day.
