Before you know it, the first virtual crop of the year will be upon us. While we want to make it fun for you, our main goal is to make it a productive weekend. We want to help you make progress on your projects so you are that much closer to having a completed project in your hands. To help you prepare for crop weekend, we are giving you our crop agenda early. This will make it easier for you to plan your own in-person events with fellow p2P members and friends, and will help you set aside time to participate in some or all of the crop.

Please be reminded that pixels2Pages is a GLOBAL COMMUNITY. You will notice that the time some of our offerings publish really early. We don’t intend for you to wake up at 4:00 am to create a page using a Blueprint. Our release times are scheduled so that p2P members and friends all over the world will have the opportunity to participate in crop offering during their waking hours. Our crop is self-paced and you can create using an offering at any time after it publishes. We will have extended hours to play games and win raffles so every time is a good time to participate.
During our most recent crops, we have raffled off an exclusive Blueprint Collection to a winning team. We want to give everyone even more chances to win. So starting this crop, individuals will have an opportunity to win the exclusive Blueprint Collection and one lucky individual will win the Blueprint Collection for their entire team. So get your teams together and get ready to crop. Every page posted to pixels2Pages or in our FOREVER Collaborative Album is another entry to win. You will want to prepare as much as possible to get lots of pages done.
We are always looking for ways to increase your productivity during our virtual crops. While all of our offerings are pretty flexible and work with just about any photos, we have had requests for a little more disclosure about the offerings so that you can gather the photos and content you need in advance of the crop. We have prepared a checklist for Pixie Power Minute Videos, Challenges, and Blueprints that we hope will make it easier for you to plan ahead. If an offering requires something specific, we will tell you (though most often it is flexible); we give you an idea if photos are in portrait or landscape orientation; and we give you notes that we think will help you select the photos and content that you will need.
This is a trial run and we look forward to hearing from you after you have had the opportunity to prepare for and participate in the crop. Then we can determine if this is something that will continue to be a part of our quarterly crops.
