I've followed monthly themes in the past, just for fun and to help me make my way through my diverse and vast stack of stash and WIPs. You can dedicate the whole month to the theme, or a week during the month, or weekends, or whatever you want! Just come join us and have fun. We'll post on the last day of the month, to celebrate that month's successes and share plans for the coming month, then on the 15th to check in on progress! I'll host a Mr. Linky post on those days and you can link back to it.
Please use the banner above on your posts, if you would, and link back to either this page or my current post.

Here's the HTML for the banner to make it easy:
<a href="http://lottloft.blogspot.com" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left:1em; margin-right:1em"><img border="0" height="76" width="400" src="http://www.lottloft.com/images/themeBannerShiny.gif" /></a>
IMPORTANT: If you grab the graphic and upload it in Blogger, it will NOT animate with Nathan. You'll just have the top of his head showing.
For those of you that don't want Nathan Fillion in your graphic (SAY WHAT??!?), just remove the word "Shiny". =)
If you want to be all fancy, you can change the "http://lottloft.blogspot.com" to the URL of the current Theme-a-licious post on my blog, so people can visit other Themers' blogs more easily.
Here's the sidebar graphic!
It's got a little animation-sparkle to it as well, so don't upload it to Blogger. Here's the URL to it (or right-click it and "Copy image URL"): http://www.lottloft.com/images/themeButton.gif
Here's a little button you can use for forum signatures. (NOTE: The quality is lesser because I did this one rather than Michael =)
Just take a look at the fabulous people who are participating in Theme-a-licious 2012!
