December Message Board Highlights

How many of you are taking a break from your holiday wrapping, cleaning, or shopping to see what's going on in the blogging world? Yep, me too! I am cooking and having the family at my house on Christmas day so I just got done giving my kitchen a major face lift and needed a break. I went to the message board and was checking out all of the great holiday inspiration our members have been sharing with us. Things have been pretty quiet around the message board, but with all the holiday hullabaloo in the air that's to be expected. Some other events taking place on the message board; last month we had our very first one-hour layout contest and it sure was a lot of fun seeing all the different takes on the sketch. Well, we are going to try something a bit different for January! We are going to hold our message board one-hour layout contest right here through our blog! But first, we need your help...over on the side bar is a poll asking which Saturday in January would work best for you participate. The contest will take place at 9pm EST no matter which. Don't worry international members, we will email you the sketch and let you know the rest of the details once the date has been decided. The poll will be open until 5pm EST December 30, 2010. Check back on the 31st to find out the date and details of the contest.
Also, on the message board we just finished up our Secret Santa Sister Swap, and I believe all packages are on their way! Santa said that everyone had been a very good girls this year. Some new excitement on the SWAP board! The new year is approaching and Valentine's Day will be just around the corner. We are checking for interest in a valentines swap. Looking for 8 players minimum and 15 max to create some valentines. Head over to the message board and check out the thread Valentine Swap if you are interested-- you must me a member of the message board to play along!
