Last minute icons for 2019, and Reminders!

It became 2020 in NZ over 17 hours ago, and I managed to make 50 icons from the first half of the 100-in-100 challenge prompts before midnight, which you can see here!.

That's my lot for 2019, and I wish you all a very Happy New Year! ;-)

UPDATE YOUR NUMBERS! I won't count for a couple of days just to give everyone time to update - and it's time to fill in that total for the year that was! Update as soon as you can after the 1st in your timezone. I'll probably count on Friday night or Saturday morning my time.

Incidentally, I have not forgotten about the poll or your comments about what to do in 2020 - I'll be talking with K and some of the others in the next wee while and we'll get a bigger challenge underway soon. In the meantime, thank you to all our regular contributors who are carrying on with the usual daily and weekly stuff that they do (which we appreciate so very much!), and keep coming along and showing them how much you enjoy their contributions.

Can I also just check in with jennytork and erinm_4600, who are rostered on for running the Weekend Challenge this weekend and the following one respectively, to see that you're both set to go? Let me know in comments here. I'll post again shortly for volunteers to run the Weekend Challenge after that.

Daily count challenge to simplyn2deep

Today I finished up the rest of my New Year's Day cleaning, hung a painting that I'd gotten over Christmas (it's an abstract with different shades of blue & waves of gold that could have been hung any one of 4 different angles), had dinner with 13 other people in our house (at a table meant for 8), and wrote 400 words.

Tomorrow it's back to the grind, so I'm going to hand this off to simplyn2deep. Wishing you abundant creativity in the day ahead.
