Hey everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, or a great time for whichever celebration you were having! It is New Year's Eve in my part of the world already now, and so it's time for a few reminders, and just maybe you'll do what I'm planning to do, and that is get in a few last creations for 2017 to boost those numbers!

So, first off, if you are updating your numbers, please do so as soon as you can! Can you please add in a TOTAL for 2017 in each of your graphic and word count entries so that we can make sure we haven't missed anything.

And secondly, there are plenty of places you can add in any last minute creations you want to add, be they words or graphics!

For instance, you can head back to the Final 2017 Weekend Challenge" or Advent Day 25 to offer up something by putting/linking it into a comment at either of them.

You can finish something for the 12 Days of WIPness challenge and just post/link it to the comm, or you can add in one or more creations to the Final 100-in-100 challenge for 2017, by adding into whichever of the prompts posts you are creating for, or if you do a bunch, just post an entire post of your own for it.

Or, just link us to something new you've made for any other challenge or prompt, or anything else at all that you like!

You know you want to do it! Count down with us and make December our best month of 2017! And Happy New Year to all of you, who have made this such a great place to be, year after year! We hope to see you all again in 2018! *throws party confetti and pours you all a drink of your choice*

100-in-100 icons!

Okay, it's not 100 icons, but it is 30! I have spent most of the evening creating these from the first post K made, where she gave us the first 30 prompts for the 100-in-100 challenge, and as it's getting near to midnight over here, I am calling it done for tonight. I hope you guys all manage to squeeze in something extra for the comm by the time midnight rolls around in your part of the world! Good luck!
