Congratulations to Miss Olivia Culpo, Miss Rhode Island, who won the Miss Universe crown last night! New England girls don't get the crown in these things too often, so major kudos to her! :)
A quick reminder that the 2012 DCU Fic/Art Angels Challenge ends on December 31st and there will be no grace period since the Challenge has been up all year. If you'd like to be 'official' and get a drumroll announcement on my journal, be part of the Master List, and get a beautiful banner created by ctbn60, you have until then to do it.
The 2012 DCU Fic/Art Silver Bells Winter Holidays Challenge officially ends on January 1, 2013, and you have a grace period until January 31st for your entry to be accepted.
Every year that I do these Challenges here on LJ I always plan on Valentine's Day and Halloween. Halloween will always be hosted by me as long as I'm here, but I'll see how Valentine's Day goes this year. The last few years have been a tad disappointing for participation so I'll evaluate as I do for the Winter Holidays Challenge every year.
I might do something different for spring or will continue with the Dick Grayson Challenge as there is renewed interest for Bruce/Dick on Tumblr and so might match up. Anyway, the two Challenges for certain for 2013 will be Valentine's Day and Halloween. You might see quickie Challenges or year-long or six-month Challenges, depending on what I feel like doing. I appreciate people's support in participating and also reading/viewing entrants' works and commenting! If you comment, they will come. :)
Merry Yule! :)
