Merry Monday!

Wowzers, can you believe we’re closing in on Christmas already?  Dang.  I can’t lie, I’m a bit stunned myself.  If you celebrate, I hope you have a handle on all your presents and preparations.

Reminders:

1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: discovery.  Give me 100 words or a graphic and I’ll reward you with my undying love and admiration. 

2. Last week’s challenges:

3. Big Buddy is at 68%!  How is your month going so far?  Need any help or a little cheerleading?  Let us know so we can help out or encourage.  I’m not even close to where I should be, which makes me sound like a broken record lately.  Oops.  I’ll get there though.  I have made 15 icons this month though.

December’s post is here, although the month is almost over.  There should be a new January post coming soon.

4. The Daily Count challenge is in full swing.  You can see when your next day is here.

5. December’s challenges are Advent and Swap of Joy!  You can find all the advent offerings in the tag here.  If you’re participating in the swap of joy, you should have gotten your person already.  If not, let Kaige know as she was the one passing out assignments.  But feel free to post an unofficial swap if something strikes your fancy.  Kaige has posted a bunch of prompts here.   

Whew, I think that’s everything!  I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for this year to be over.  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas if you celebrate.  If not, I still wish you peace, joy, and happiness. I think we can all use a bit of that these days.  Have an amazing week, my friends!
