Well it looks like we have a New Host for January, as I twisted his arm, but I will be helping him along the way, as it’s his first time, so a new venture, a dual host.


SO it’s going to be the Jade and Cho Dog and Pony show for January.  Details later

Jade, I know what it’s like to be a new host - I hosted my first Freebie Challenge last month. It can be stressful, but it’s a lot of fun, too! (And if you need a judge, just ask…)

Come take part in the Freebie Challenge, or the RRRR, or any of the other contests. I think Jaderail would have wanted that.

Jade, don’t worry.  This just like hosting the beginner’s challenge.  The only difference is that you help to decide the winners.
Oh; and welcome to the insane asylum.

ok…so here’s what we have so far:

Jan - Jade and Cho
Feb - open
March - BWSman
April - open
May - Robkelk
June - Music2u4u
July - Dollygirl
August - BWSman
Sept - open
Oct - Music2u4u
Nov - open
Dec - Jeeperz

So…we are half full…or is that half empty? I try to be optimistic about these things.

(Sure wish we could get ole’ Dorseyland to do “the Funnies” theme or Lord Ganthor to do a “Real man” theme one month. That would be fun to see all those real men folks would come up with…lol.

I’ve wanted to host for a long time now, but…I’m terrified that, what with my screwy work schedule that changes from minuet to minuet, that I would fall behind or fall off all together and just not be able to keep up. Okay, so that’s a hopelessly lame excuse, but the last thing I’d ever want to do is disappoint everybody here because I couldn’t hold up my end of things. Maybe my situation will improve later in the New Year, but I’m not holding out much hope. It’s difficult to muster the energy to oversee a challenge after putting in 10 or 12 hour days that alternate between mind-numbing taskwork and screaming hysterics. But in this economy, wadda’mi gonna do?

Don’t worry about that; you will have a solid team to help you with hosting.  Go ahead; give it a shot.  We’ll make sure you don’t fall flat on your face.  Dorseyland; on the other hand….. (JK Dorseyland)

Well, I finally have my piece done.

Christmas Party

Santa was making his rounds
one Christmas Eve Night,
When down the chimney he came
to the most unusual sight.

For there before his eyes
at this Christmas party,
was a swashbuckler, a smuggler,
a soldier, a singer, and a shinobi.

There was two techies, a tomboy,
and a tiny tot too.
“Ho, Ho, Ho”, he said,
“Oh what an interesting crew!”

Then having given his gifts
he dashed out of sight,
with a “Merry Christmas to all,
And to all a good night!”

All characters are Genesis
Only post work is the copyright with my logo, and the “Merry Christmas” at the bottom

I’ve heard of JK Rowling, but who’s this JK Dorseyland person, and why does he spend so much time flat on his face?

Tramp, great render! Love that blonde on the left. So does the guy with the laptop—I can tell.

jeeperz, I checked the links of TG’s entry they are good except for shadowcatstudios tank dress and you get a 404 error and I get a maneto error on evilinnocence’s store. That could be me and not the link. Ready for your call.

Tramp Graphics, a nice composition. You did a really good job on the poses and the interactions of the people in the scene. It looks real.

and TG here is the link to the hair:

Thanks dollygirl. There are plenty of links to qualify, I would say
ENTRY ACCEPTED
I am still not on my computer yet, if the link is bad it can be fixed or left out. Either way works for me
