Apologies from your mods for getting lost at sea (or getting lost in Christmas).
I hereby declare January to be an Amnesty month. This means that there is no official challenge, but that you are encouraged to create icons fulfilling any of the previous challenges, and to post them here.

Due to the wonderful H1N1 and the fact that only two people have made icons for the "Out of Focus" challenge, I won't be able to post a poll until Monday at earliest. Please consider taking the time to enter 1 or more icons. Thank you! :)

There will be a slight delay in closing and collating the current challenge, as I am suffering from computer meltdown (figuratively) and much of my spare time in the next (few?) days will be spent fixing it. I am posting right now from my laptop from an internet hot-spot, so I'm not completely shut off, but...
Please take the next few days as an extension, and enter! That might cheer me up a little.

It is the weekend. Perhaps you would like to work on Challenge 2x05.

[personal profile] kerravonsen
Due to the fact that
(a) there are only two entrants so far, and
(b) I am still not well
I have decided that Challenge 2x05 will also be the challenge for the month of October. In other words, y'all have two more weeks!
So it is now due on 12th October. I shall update the challenge post accordingly.
