Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

Claim your JOY!!!

Below the cut are the Joy lists of gifts people would like to receive. There are no names listed here, and we'll keep the comments here screened as well.

Remember if you listed a Joy, you need to claim one! And too, while there are some Joys that will be securely within your wheelhouse, consider doing something that will stretch you a bit as an artist.

We ask that when you comment to make your claim you list out three of them. We'd like you to rank them in order of your preferences. You are more than welcome to list more than three if you so choose.

Claims are filled on a first come/first serve basis. We will do our best to strike through a Joy list once it has been claimed, but we don't promise super-speed.

You will be contacted via PM as to which Joy you got. If you are not PM enabled, please leave an e-mail address where we can reach you (again, comments are screened).
