Last minute Advent dates available!

Hey everyone, if you haven't signed up yet for our Advent challenge, we still have a few days open - I'm waiting to hear from a few people who wanted second dates, but hey, if you want to join in, jump in now and one of these could be yours: 5, 9, 11, 12, 15 and 22 December. [edit: 2 down, 2 others to be given if no-one else wants them!]

To kick us off on the 1st, it's jdl71, and this is your official reminder!

After that, please keep a track of your date yourself, as I won't be able to get reminders out to everyone. The link above leads you to the original post which lists the dates and the members assigned to them, as well as the VERY OPEN rules. Remember, you only need to do whatever you're comfortable with, so it should be pretty easy to fill.

I am really looking forward to seeing what you've all got for us, and you'll be pleased to know I already have something ready for my own first date - WOOHOO! (yes, I managed to write something!). I'm planning icons for my second date, but they're not done yet, so I need to get onto that! ;-)
