I realy don't know about all those different times in the world. But for me 9 o'clock in the evening is a perfect time. Then I mean 9 o'clock in the evening in the Netherlands.

Ah you are totally addicted and devoted to your digi aren't you Jean Ann!! :) (((hugs)))

01-22-2010, 07:35 AM
Same of Renee, Italy has the same time as NL, so 9pm GMT+1 = 3pm EST.

That applies to Speed Scraps, too, if you ever organise them! (I am too new and I don't know yet)

01-22-2010, 06:41 PM
The perfect time for me is from 7pm to 10pm est. (I am in est.) But I try to make anytime work as I don't have kids or a real strict job and all.

01-22-2010, 08:59 PM
8:30pm - 10:00pm eastern

01-23-2010, 12:21 AM
9pm EST is a reasonable time for me too.

01-23-2010, 04:46 AM
Hey... those of you in my time zone (DE, NL, IT) is 9:30 okay? 3:30 EST... looking to do 1/2hour to 1 hour. I just want to be sure my kids are sleeping & not bugging me...

8PM to Midnight EST would work best for me on the west coast. Assuming I have the day off, of course. Workdays are 12 hours for me, so I don't have any time to play.

01-23-2010, 10:31 PM
i like 7 or 8 pm to start eastern time or earlier....have to get up for work so i usually get to bed between 10 and 11 pm...

01-23-2010, 10:32 PM
i get home at like 3:45 but that would be cool if i could join in a little late...Hey... those of you in my time zone (DE, NL, IT) is 9:30 okay? 3:30 EST... looking to do 1/2hour to 1 hour. I just want to be sure my kids are sleeping & not bugging me...

Ok with me 3:30 pm est. You'll just have to bear with me though I've never done one of these

01-29-2010, 03:36 PM
hmmmm - seems majority like the late night!

My good times are 8am-8pm est

kids go to bed around 8pm, so I have a little bit of time to play afterwords, but I tend to go to bed around 10pm-ish! :)

02-08-2010, 08:11 PM
7pm-10pm est is ok with me, i am usually up till 1am here in the east

02-08-2010, 08:23 PM
oh that was this afternoon....awww....i will have catch it next time.....anytime during the day is ok too lol 9am-1am can be worked out with me :) I had 2 teeth extracted today so I was out of it this afternoon. slept till 7pm. hub had 3 taken out also so it was very quiet here lol. he is still sleeping.

02-08-2010, 10:47 PM
I think the best time with those with kids is after their kids are in bed. LOL For me that is 9pm too. But that is 11pm EST. Just curious how many people are up and available between the hours of 11pm EST to 2am EST. ;)

If I just scrap with kids up, I can be on the computer anytime from noon EST to 1 or 2am EST.

02-09-2010, 05:16 PM
I get off work on the west coast at 3 pm so that means 6pm est.

02-17-2010, 05:47 AM
I can come to a chat from 1 pm (est) til 9 pm (est) since I am a dutch girl

02-17-2010, 08:45 AM
I would love to host another Speed Scrap Chat, it was soo much fun!

I can only be available between 9am - 4pm and then again from 6pm - 8pm all eastern times - anything after 8pm is very "iffy" with me, depends on the children, with the biggest being the hubby! :rolleyes: lol

Could any of you make it at those times during the day? I realize that not everyone is a SAHMommy, like me, :l :DD

02-17-2010, 11:43 AM
I'm a SAH-empty-nester so I'm pretty much available to come to chat anytime. Except on Fridays, lol. Friday is DH's short day at work so he's home early and we do our "running" then.

03-30-2010, 06:54 AM
I come from Australia i will try to fit in.with whatevers going i know some chats are around 8.00, 9.00 or10.00 pm so let me know.

04-28-2010, 08:45 AM
Yes around 9pm est time suits me

I can get hubs to occupy my kids mid morning Eastern time like 10 or 11 AM...

05-05-2010, 04:36 AM
I am on central time. Evenings are ok, but I would love to see some day time things too. I try to spend evenings with my family. I am up very early too and most of my computer and scrap time is very early. Thanks for asking.

05-05-2010, 07:32 AM
Amber & jimmyrose, I'm like you... I get to focus on scrapping more during the day than at night, night time is "hubby" time because he works long day's and I hardly get to see him! :)

05-07-2010, 01:19 PM
exactly, not only is night time hubby time - it's dinner and check homework cause the big ones are home from school and I didn't see them all day. I can tend to get sucked in when it comes to digiscrap so I TRY not to be one too too much each evening. Try. lol

05-07-2010, 03:15 PM
sucked in... yeah! I hear ya on that one! :l

05-09-2010, 01:31 AM
Before 11PM EST (and not on Tuesdays) for me. And any time after 11AM weekdays. I'd love to participate in chats more, but I get soooo lost in the conversations.... But I'm banking that practice makes perfect LOL

08-04-2010, 03:08 PM
Anywhere between 8pm till 11.30 pm Dutch time would be OK for me.
I only hope I'll be aware of a schedulded chat in time and have no other appointments for that evening...

11-09-2012, 08:45 AM
Perfect time for me is between 4-8p. My morning are busy getting caught up with scrapping, photography, sites, etc and I'm at the gym from 1-2:30. I've never been involved in a chat but I'm game.

11-09-2012, 01:29 PM
I have my coffee with my computer in the morning Which is about 11 EST. Then take a break from chores for about an hour that would be 4-5 EST. Then we are finished with outside chores in the winter time about 5:30pm PST so that would be 8:30pm EST Then I am free the rest of the night. Summer time we settle down a couple hours later.

11-09-2012, 02:04 PM
3:30 pm est not good for me. Grandkids are just getting home from school and there is homework. That is my time with them. Anything from 7:30 pm to whatever in the evening est is ok. Also anytime between 9 a.m and 2 pm est when the kids are in school is good for me.

11-09-2012, 02:17 PM
my favorite chat/scrap time - 8.30pm - 10pm

11-09-2012, 02:46 PM
I'm down for anytime! Wish there was late night scrappers like me EST...I am an owl!!! Just would like to know when ahead of time! I always seem to miss them!

11-11-2012, 03:57 PM
7-10 est. I would love to get back to the monday night chat with you.Tracy. I have missed it.

11-12-2012, 08:33 AM
I miss chatting :(
I'm flexible, expect Wednesday evenings are tough.

11-12-2012, 08:45 AM
8PM -10PM EST work best for me.I work a full time job(10 1/2 hours a day 4 days a week) , get home around 530pm get supper cooked,kitchen straightend out and kids settled etc .Usually by 8PM am ready to take a little "me" time.

11-12-2012, 09:51 AM
For me, in winter, any time from 9AM to 9 PM. During the spring, summer and warmer days of fall, I'm better from 6PM on, since I'm usually out in the garden.

11-13-2012, 08:26 PM
The later the better for me... 9 pm and beyond

11-15-2012, 03:52 PM
I am 6 hours ahead, so later in the evening makes it not so scarily early. LOL

11-16-2012, 10:53 AM
Same for me here, night time is hubby time when he is not traveling. I would best be available 9am - 4pm est most days.
