    I am so not a night owl. I get up, wake my puter up, go get a cup of coffee and sit down to see how the new day's challenge is going.
    I copy and paste Challenge for the LIST, before looking, don't know why, but that is important to me? lol
    Then, I love to read the questions, pondering how the wording is being interpreted by so many different artist.
    But it is morning time. I did stay up the first night, because I was so darn excited. I am excited again today, because well, tee hee...

    Alarm clock goes off at 4:45, so get up and look for me. And if I didn't get up that early and wasn't already ready to head to bed, I would probably want to stay up to see what's up your sleeve!! :)

    I've just been popping in once a day and seeing what the challenge is. I'm pretty behind already but hope to catch up. I knocked out a big one today (the grid) and it was fun. I just have to be in the right mood to scrap. So I try to at least look at the challenge but not with any kind of rush or stay up late for it. Unless I just happen to be up.

    I'm a night owl, so if it's posted before I head off to bed (I'm in the pacific time zone), I'll read through. Otherwise I look in the morning. If I'm sitting in a boring meeting, I'll read through and multi-task (shhh, don't tell, lol). I'm also always very intrigued by the questions about the challenges, but mostly I'm excited to see the works of art everyone comes up with :heartlub I can't wait to host my own challenge :jumpey

    I WISH I could stay up and wait! I tried two nights, but by 12:20 I was nodding off. So it's get up and look. Not as competitive as I was last two years when I secretly tried to be first to post or at least get on page one,:crazy LOL!!!!!!:crazy3 Just enjoying it this year and commenting a bit more in the gallery.:heartlub

    Up until the current #9 I was able to get my page completed that night ( my time as they were shared around 4pm my time). #9 may have to wait until tomorrow ( weekend for me ) as I am not home presently and when I get home I will not long after be going out for dinner.

    I'm usually up until the wee hours anyway (one part night owl, one part the young one's sleep disorders). I'm quite often still working on the day's challenge when the new one comes out. When I'm not I'm compulsively refreshing to see if the new one has posted yet.

    And when it hasn't - I grab my phone and look before I even roll out of bed in the morning :-D

    I'm usually up until 12:30 or so EST, so I always check before I go to bed. Some days it's there, but more often I have to wait and try again in the morning. Regardless of when I look, I usually don't get to work on it until the end of the day, 10 pm.

    I usually leave my computer by anywhere from 10-11 pm to go read a book, but then I'll check back around midnight before I go to bed to see if the next day's challenge has been posted.

    I generally see them in the evening here because they go up from 6pm NZ time and I’m often on my own until 9pm anyway. I generally don’t scrap though til the following day waiting to see what comes up.

    Being in the UK, I get up my usual time. I switch the computer straight on to see if the challenge is up yet. Only the one day so far this year when I've has to wait until lunchtime for it to be posted.

    I wait until I’ve woken up in the morning after I’ve checked the weather and emails. Maybe once I could’ve stayed up to see the new challenges, but now I’m too exhausted from our renovations that I fall into bed around 10:00. I’m such the party animal, I know! Lol!

    @AJK - you’re too funny! That gave me a smile!

    I get up at 5:30am with my girls to get them ready for school. Once they are all gone, I eat breakfast, get myself ready and then turn on the computer to check the challenge. Sometimes, I need to think about it some during the day (especially if we have something going on). Other days I jump right in.

    I have had to check the challenge on my phone a few times. Especially on days where I knew I couldn't get online right away. This way, I can read through it and then get ideas throughout the day until I can get online to scrap.

    that is how I roll! I love to ruminate over the challenges! Sometimes they just explode out of my head! but some, I read it and then reread and go, HOW? lol

    but I am usually still in my robe, with cup of coffee staring at screen!

    I'm all over the place. I do not have a set schedule and more often then not I am up all hours of the night due to pain and insomnia. My computer is mostly always on. Today I checked when I got up (I actually went to the gym for 7am today). I came home from the gym and I have been in front of the computer since then. I finished day 6 and now I am procrastinating doing day 7...lol. Right now MOC is a great distraction from my DS leaving on Monday for boot camp.

    I live in Virginia and occasionally the challenge is posted just after midnight. It's not out of the question I might still be awake then. Of course I was still up at that time on Day 1 and very much appreciated finding the challenge soon after we cheered in the new year. I got my Day 1 page done around 2 a.m. January 1. Since then, I've mostly just been reading the challenge on my phone soon after I wake up and if I can't do it right away, I ponder it at least. So far I've been able to finish all but one or two of my pages in the morning.

    LOL! I usually check it in the morning, but Monday I was up so late, I saw Tuesday's challenge post. I really look forward to seeing the new challenges each and every day!
