Welcome back e’rybody… I trust everyone had a safe and sane holiday weekend, celebrating everything you like to celebrate when a weekend calls for a celebration… Let’s get on with it, shall we?

Yep.  SNAIL / FORMAL art is due this Friday by 2pm PST.  So why not stop everything you are doing and start knitting a snail tuxedo?  Or maybe arrange some matchsticks to form a familiar shape and video tape them being lit?  The possibilities are absolutely limitless!
