Christmas Project - over

Sun Nov 27, 2011, 4:21 AM

Christmas is the time of Year when Giving and Sharing is in focus!
I will give you prizes and you will share with the community and friends "A Daily Task" you have been given by me.
Sounds like a good deal? OK, then let me explain to you how the challenge will work.

Each day, from December 1st till December 24th you will be given one task. They will be all different, and rather easy to do. Many of the tasks should be completed within a short space of time, though others may have longer deadlines.
Each day I will post a comment link combined with the days task to which you should reply to with the link to your entries. This way I can keep track of your entries more easily. No notes please, only replies to my comments will count as valid entries. Please add the date you refer to as well, in case you enter the wrong task we can still make you aware of that.

Hover over the dates in this journal to see your Task for the Day or older ones that still have an open deadline. If hover is disabled it means that either the deadline has passed or future tasks have yet to be published.

Out of all the members that enter one lucky person will be picked to receive the daily prize.
Prizes will always be announced together with the task, that way you can decide whether you want to join that days task or wait for a more suitable one. Prizes will vary depending on the difficulty of the task.
All winners will be announced once the project is over and all deadlines are reached.


This means daily journal updates (as per previous years). If you don't like that, unwatch my journals during december!
And looking up for the source code won't help to get the task earlier, there is nothing added before ;)

My sister is very ill {angel}, I'm trying to get here involved in dA again . She was on every day , before the hospital .
I'm sorry to bother you , but , can I just write something on here ? Or do I have to put
those other things on it ? This is very beautiful . Thank you .

Sorry to hear about your sister.
I am not really sure what you mean with "write something on here" as i don't know what you are trying to do. THis is an old journal posted by me, nothing you can write on. This is nothing that can be used by others or installed. Just a journal entry of mine.

If you want to use this skin, you have to go to my gallery to the journal skin section to get the code.

I had forgotten to turn the oven on and the Turkey had been sitting there for 3 hours,on not cooking mode.. :paranoid:

annnnnnnnd..one Christmas eve I had just baked a huge batch of Mince pies,as gifts etc,I left them cooling ,while zapping outside to throw rubbish away, Zoe ate the lot.

Oh dear, I had hoped I would make it in time to write something for the critique task. I had chosen a deviation last night, but I was overtired and wanted to sleep before writing the critique. And today I started to clean-up in the kitchen. A pity. :noes:

I nominate my best friend, ~snowmoone. :heart: She's always giving so much to me, even though she has so little to give. I want to give her a surprise, like a brush pack for deviantART muro or a premium membership, because she can always surprise me with a smile and a gift. She's not too amazing at drawing, but her writing skills are completely out of this world for a thirteen year old. Snowy wants to get Christmas presents for our friends using dA points-- prints of beautiful artwork and DeviantWear galore for everyone. If you were bored enough to read this whole paragraph, you should clearly see that ~snowmoone should get this wonderful prize.
