The four SBG hosts will take turns posting new challenges once a week for the whole month of July. Each post will include 35 challenges, all given a certain number of points. The harder or weirder the challenge, the more points it will give you! (Check out some of last year’s boredom busters here to get an idea of what they’ll be like.)

Participants will use a survey to submit any completed weekly challenges to a host blogger. We’ll tally up everyone’s points each week and show a “leaderboard” of the top participants to promote a little friendly competition. 😉

Participants collect points by successfully completing challenges. The number of challenges you finish is up to you; however, you must complete any weekly challenges in that week alone for those points to count.

If you miss a week, feel free to do the challenges just for fun, but they won’t earn you any points toward the giveaway.

Earn even more points by sending us photos of the challenges you do!

 

  • You can receive 3 points for each SBG photo sent in weekly. (5 photos, or 15 points per week, is the maximum allowed.) That means you could earn up to 60 bonus points by sending in photos!
  • Please note that is up to the hosts’ discretion to decide whether the photo should count or not.
  • Unless you ask otherwise when you send them, we may add your photos to the next week’s challenge post to share the fun!
  • Anyone can send us SBG photos for the next post, even if they’re not official participants.
  • We’ll provide an email address for you to send the photos to in each weekly post.

Participants are entered for a chance to win the prize corresponding to their point range.

If, at the end of this year’s SBG, you have 0-50 points, you are not eligible to win a prize. :/ If you finish with 51-200 points, you have a chance of winning a $10 Amazon or Etsy gift card! If you finish with 201-350 points, you have a chance of winning a $15 Amazon or Etsy gift card. And finally, participants with 351+ points will be entered for a chance to win a $20 Amazon or Etsy gift card.

The more challenges you complete, the better the chance of winning a bigger prize!

BIBPC – Category #7 – Invincible

Hey’all! (see what I did there?) XD

Good to be back with you guys and gals again! So, I know I cut it really close again with this, but my picture IS HERE! YAY! So this is the LAST *sighs and sniffs* category for BIBPC! I honestly have mixed feelings over this…because I’m sad it’s over, but I’m also slightly relieved that I’m not like having to run around on the last day to turn it in yelling “I FORGOT I FORGOT” and counting down how long I have til midnight… because – let’s face it – I’m a forgetful person.

Yep.

Even though (thank you Megan) I always HAVE plenty of time to post it… I usually (actually, always) waited until the last second to take one though… sooo… yeah. I’ll stop making excuses now. XD Haha!

ANYWAYS, it will also be less of a burden now for Megan! Megan, you will no longer *until the next BIBPC* have to deal with my “five minutes from due date” picture entries! Haha!

Alas though, I did get a picture for the following category of…

Oh wait… it’s in the title isn’t it…

Yeah, as you probably already read- Category #7 is INVINCIBLE!!!

K.ATeamFoxCategory7-BIBPC.JPG

So my thoughts are, God and the Bible are both invincible! And so is light! ESPECIALLY God’s light!

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
So I took a picture of light next to God’s word showing that God, light, the Bible, and God’s light are incomprehensible, therefore they are also invincible.
I hope you enjoyed!
Sadly, I didn’t really have time to make a poster, so I will not be turning one in for bonus points. Sorry… Good job, Team Fox! Y’all did a good job!
Farewell to BIBPC … FOR NOW… *wiggles eyebrows* *evil grin*
And farewell and goodnight to you all as well!
Now I have a couple pages of words to write up, a blog to comment on, and a future blog post for YLFC to write!
So…

ADIOS!

Chubsterpic2018.JPG

And some of you people that are helping Team Owl needs the push might not like me for this….but I’m donating my points to……

….

Almost everyone I’ve seen so far has given points to Team Owl – which is super great! – but I think Team Rabbit deserves points too! As for Team Bear… well, I’ll just not mention that… Y’all are doing good though – really good!

BIBPC Team Fox Category #4 + more

MERRY CHRISTMAS, guys and gals! Good to be back with you all again! I hope you’re having a blessed Christmas day and a good time with your families!

SO, FOR THIS CATEGORY, the theme is … *drumroll please*

FURRY!

SO, I had only a few days to get this pic before I leave on a mission trip, but here is what I came up with!

K.A Team Fox Category 4.JPG

Hopefully you find this cute as I did, and not gross because of the milk and… *ahem* slobber…. XD This is the darling little calf again! BTW, it does not yet have a name…although some people want to call it Biscuit… (BUT NOT ME) SO, please PLEASE help me out and give GOOD NAME SUGGESTIONS for it in the comments below! Thanks!

ALSO, the collaboration Blog I am part of (YLFC) is coming up on its two-year blogiversary!!!! So there is going to be some FUN stuff coming up in the next couple months for that! Head on over and check it out!

Thanks, people!

Fun fact: I was looking through my comments and posts and I HAVE BEEN BLOGGING OVER FOUR YEARS!!! Can you believe that? That is crazy! At least… it is to me! Thanks so much for following me in my craziness of blogging! Here are some *painful* snippets from my first ever post, Welcome, published September 23, 2014!

Hi, I’m K.A. and I’m going to tell you what I know about Horses,dogs, Fish,chickens, and Hermit crabs! I hope that by Cuddly critters you can get to know Gadget, Aggie, Fred, Derf, Crabby, Hermy, Nifel, Snipe, Ostrich, Tiker, Chubster, Cutie,  Bobbie, Sammie,Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Bibbles, and Stuart as well as I do. Well, lets get started!

Not HORRIBLE so far… I read this a couple days ago and my first thought was “Who are Bibbles and Stuart???” After a few more moments of reading I saw that I had two goldfish at that time and was like “OH, I forgot I had goldfish named that!”

Haha!!! Anyways… here’s a bit more…

Recently we have gotten a Rosetta Stone thing and are learning Spanish! I really like it. Los hombres cocinan arroz. The men are cooking rice!!!

I can’t wait to see my Gadget again. He is out to pasture right now. I am missing him alot. But I should be able to see him soon. I really love that big four year old.

If you want to see a youtube of a Hermit Crab eating, search this!

CRINGY!!!!

1, why am I trying to show off my spanish skills, and 2, what is up with the short jumpy sentences? And… Really? A YouTube video link?? What? RANDOM….

All in all, for a ten year old I guess it could have been worse! XD

You’ve probably seen enough cringiness to last you for a while, so I’ll end with a cute picture of my Meow and then leave you to your Christmas evening!

Goodnight, y’all!

BIBPC #3- Team Fox

WELCOME TO THE POST OF BIBPC CATEGORY THREE! Hey, that rhymes! Haha! XD

So for this category, the… category… was Tradition! And decorating cookies during Christmas time may or may not have been a common idea during this category, but it is indeed a tradition!

So, here is my picture!

K.A team fox-category #3.JPG

Today we decorated over 70 cookies!!!! We are planning on going caroling soon, and what better thing to give away to people than cookies! I hope you like this picture! And just so you know, the polar bear cookie on the left was one I did! XD Haha!!!

Have a good night, y’all!

BIBPC #2 – Team Fox

Hey all! I hope you enjoy this picture! I would love to say more and show more pics, but I can only show two because I have an hour to turn in this picture before the contest! Thanks Megan for dealing with my tardiness! XD

Here is the picture that took over three hours to get! 😀

So in case you don’t know the category, or want to know how it fits in, it had to have words:

Candle, Chesnuts, Celebrate, Chill, Celebrate, Carols, Candy Canes!

So in the picture, Sully is literally the defenition of Chill, and here he is, chillin in the “chill”y weather and so…. chill? And then there are candles next to him, and a rawhide candy cane, and lights plus reindeer antlers equal celebrate (?) and then the picture is on a card and the “carol” beneath it mentions chesnuts AND carols…..?

And I am on Team Fox!

SO PLEASE I HOPE IT COUNTS!

K.A team fox category #2 BIBPC.JPG

Just so you know, this is NOT an old card! This picture was taken this morning!!! Here is the picture I took without the card!

Photos ‘Round the Farm + BIBPC

Hey everyone!!!! I am so sorry that this blog has been abandoned so much lately! *sighs* I’ve been meaning to make a post soon but… I’ve been too lazy about it! I know you probably don’t care too much to hear about how much I miss you all and how my life has been, so let’s get on to the fun pictures!!!! Honestly, a LOT has probably changed since I’ve last posted on here, especially since I last posted pictures…but we still have many of our same animals!
