I agree with you on this request, it would be nice to have two months at least. I have a 'main day job' so getting something done in a short time is not always possible as I mostly only get weekends if I am not on annual leave. Knowing ahead would be fab.

I have designed many pieces on paper, and in my head, but the I find my real learning comes from the mistakes I make and the problems I manage to solve when I see a project through.
As an alternative to themes, perhaps consider a technique? New technique: favourite technique? Or item and leave the technique open - pendant, ring, bangle ...?
Thank you for all your thoughts! I have listed them in a separate thread so everyone knows the themes
I haven't had the courage to enter yet (nor have I had the time to make anything theme relevant!) but love the competition and seeing the variety of people's imaginations. Keep it going please.
November = bonfire/ fireworks

I've enjoyed these, just not had the opportunity to enter yet!!
Keep them up Littlegem ;D
Looking forward to seeing your entries this year! What I have done this time round, from the suggestions from you all, is post all the the themes upfront to encourage more to enter!

Where do the entries get exhibited? will there be a Facebook page? Or a page on here? Of has this already been done and I've missed the boat completely?
