Swap of Joy with a change of pace!

IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN! And my favorite thing is the giving! I adore it to bits!!!

But I am a slacker. *sigh*

Anyway - haldoor and I were discussing the SOJ, and what to do this year. The number of participants have declined over the years and last year 3 of us never posted our gifts last year, including me which brings me quite a bit of shame. (I swear, I adore you. I DO!) So....

New plan:

1 - Let's do smaller gifts. This year a Joy will consist of a drabble or an icon as a minimum. A little way to appreciate each other, a small way to say "Great job this year, you rock!"
2 - Let's expand our portfolio. This year we will randomize the Joys. The Joyfills are small and we are awesome, we can do anything.
3 - Let's get it done. This year all Joys will be posted on December 24th. We can schedule posts in advance, and there is no requirement for a beta read this year. We've got this!

1 – If you sign up for a Joy you must fill a Joy in return.
2 – Joy fills can be written or graphic. Written Joy fills should be a minimum of 100 words. Graphic Joy fills should be a minimum of an icon. Sure you can do more. You know how I feel about more words and graphics.
3 – Each Joy should be an individual post to the comm and not a comment (you can post elsewhere and post a link post at the comm).

1 - Sign ups are right here in this post. Copy the small form into a comment, fill it out. All comments are screened.
2 - Sign ups start now and are open until 5pm EST on November 30th.
3 - Usernames will be thrown into a randomizer and you will be notified by PM of what user's Joy you are filling(hopefully by the end on my day on December 1st).
4 - Post your Joyfill for viewing on December 24th, as long as it is the 24th somewhere in the world, you are good to post.
