Day #1 Christmas Kickstart Challenge #79 - Cat Lovers Christmas Challenge: Remembering Janis Woolbright




Welcome, welcome, welcome! 

I'm so happy that this day has finally arrived and we're ready to play The Cat Lovers Christmas Challenge and remember our dear friend Janis Woolbright.


For many crafters October meant Janis's Cat Lovers Blog Hop, and all the excitement and furry fun that this would bring. Sadly, Janis passed away in January of this year. At this time I was planning my year ahead for Christmas Kickstart and thinking about how I could do a tie-in with Janis's Hop for October 2023. I was going to ask her to be my October guest designer/elf and offer to assist with her hop; however the news of her passing overtook everything.

Like so many, I was deeply saddened by Janis's loss. I wanted to do something to pay tribute to her and the lovely person that she was. Back in January I wrote a brief tribute post about Janis. However, this just didn't seem like enough and I couldn't put the idea out of my head of wanting to do something more. I emailed her son, James, to run an idea past him and together we discussed what has become this challenge. James was so kind and so encouraging, and I'm honoured to have his and the family's blessing to remember Janis in this way. Thanks James; I hope we do your mom proud over the next few weeks. I am so grateful you agreed to let me do this.

I also ran the idea past my partner-in-crafting-crime, Gail AKA Iona B Unny and, as always, she's been full of ideas and great support. Thanks so much, Gail!

 

To get things started I put out the call to some of the gals who assisted Janis in previous years and they quickly agreed to pay tribute to her by becoming involved.  Collectively, they are Janis' Helpful Hoppers, but you'll also know them as... 



Kitty






And please send some love to Karen who helped with the preparation for the challenge, but has ongoing care commitments which mean she won't be able to take part. Thanks for all your help.

I contacted past sponsors to see if they'd be prepared to sponsor this Challenge. I'm so grateful so many have said yes. To say I've been blown away by their response is an understatement. Janis was truly loved and valued by the cardmaking community, and I've been humbled to walk in her steps while pulling things together for this tribute challenge.

I've unapologetically used Janis's Cat Lovers Hop as the template for The Cat Lovers Christmas Challenge. Janis had everything down to a fine art, and I always loved how the pages looked and how she helped participants navigate around the posts. Any mistakes, broken links etc etc are mine, and I'd appreciate a heads-up if you notice anything amiss! You can email me (Jo) at dottypudding (at) aol.com.



So, what's happening for the 
Cat Lovers Christmas Challenge?


Yes, this is badged as a 'Challenge' rather than a 'Hop', but I'd love it if we all did HOP and visit one another just like we did for The Cat Lovers Hop. The sense of friendship and community is one of the things I will always treasure about Janis's Hops.

We'll have some games and some prizes. Regular participants here at Christmas Kickstart will be familiar with Rudolph's Random Raffle, and the rather dashing reindeer who runs the whole thing and randomly picks the prize winners. Here he is:


Rudolph will be helping to select our PRIZE WINNERS at the end of the month, and don't forget it'll all be done randomly. Some of the games will have a standalone prize, while winning other games will add your name into the overall Random Prize Draw for a second, third, fourth or whatever time! I hope that makes some sense... That whole sentence sounded waaaay better in my head then it just did reading it back!

Many of them are returning sponsors who supported Janis throughout the 8 years of The Cat Lovers Hop. Thank you to them all, I am beyond grateful to everyone on this list and I've been so touched by the responses I've received from you all. I couldn't manage to make contact with all of Janis' Sponsor Family so if you notice a company is missing it is probably for this reason. During these difficult times when finances are tight I cannot believe the generosity of the sponsors - many of whom are small companies working hard to make a living. Thank you to you all. 

Christmas Kickstart is a challenge blog, but just for this month we'll be having Random Winners only. To be honest, this is to make my life a little easier as I'll only be awarding Random Prizes. I'll announce all the WINNERS in the first week of November to fall in line with our usual pattern of announcements here at Christmas Kickstart. For each game we'll have a Random Winner and I'll be drawing Random Winners from everyone who links up in the gallery too. There are so many sponsors and plenty of prizes, and you'll get to find out the range of Random Prizes as our Challenge unfolds!

I won't be posting every day during October, but I do plan to spread the fun throughout the month, so please keep checking back to see what's happening and to link up in the gallery and for the games.

Should I post your badge with my project?
Yes, please put this badge on your posts so your readers will know which projects you've created for this challenge! I understand that participants with Flickr accounts and the like won't be able to post the badge. That's fine, just grab it and add it if you can!



This is Day #1, and this is the page with the LINKY to enter your challenge creations, please don't forget this is a Christmas Challenge, so try and make your cards both CAT and Christmas themed.

  3. I'm in awe of all the efforts you have already put into this and all the amazing sponsors. I had been wanting to participate in some of the recent Cat Lovers Hops that Janis organised, but somehow never got around to do so. Hope I can join in the fun this time in honour of Janis's memory and to make my 4 cats proud.

  17. Dear Jo, now I'm just speechless and I have a few tears in my eyes. When you told me about it, I thought it would be a normal Kickstart Challenge with a memory of Janis.
    But it's so much more and it's awesome!!! I'm thrilled and thank everyone who supports you and also a big thank you to the sponsors. It's her way of showing her appreciation for Janis.
    Of course I'm there, in memory of Janis, her love for cats, her love for people, her happiness, her warmth.... Thank you Janis for letting me get to know you!!!

  54. I am terribly late to the game. I saw it last weekend and started creating. Better late than never. What a lovely way to remember someone. Wouldn't she be pleased and feel so special for this tribute to her? Thank you for working so hard to put this together.

    1. I saw Ionabunny's card on the Tic Tac Toe challenge. Loved that digi she used and how cute her card was. If it's okay, I'd like to change my answer on #3 to "Digis are okay, please".

  60. Hi, This is an amazing tribute to Janis who I didn't know but who was clearly a much loved member of the crafting community. Even though i didn't know Janis I thought it would be great to show support to what is wonderful community-minded initiative to remember her xx

    4. Sadly I never particpated in the Cat Lovers' hop. I started my blog in 2008, but for personal and work reasons i was mostly away from crafting from mid 2013 until spring 2021, which may explain why I didn't know Janis.
