    Hmm... I really could announce the theme a little early. There's a pretty solid leader in the poll already. But I'll give it another couple of days before I announce it. I'm going to be really busy tomorrow and at least the first half of the day on Sunday. One of my nephews is staying with us. :) He might play the Sims a little, but I won't have much time for forum stuff while he's here.

    Oh, how fun, Carewren! Will he be eating cupcakes and wearing his animal hat? And aren't nieces and nephews the greatest?

    I just had an idea for a prompt! You have to fit a set of words in your story. Like swishy, as in swishy chair. :smirk: :

    They are the best! I don't think we'll have cupcakes, but we may make either cookies or ice cream. :)

    YES! This is a good one. And to make it harder we can add stuff like 'dinosaur pool float', 'death of a loved one', and 'theft of the engagement ring'!

    I think....I may have gone too far. :D

    Can't wait to participate, about the logo! how about using sims medal icon?
    MedalGold.pngMedalSilver.pngMedalBronze.png

    Ahhh!!! Those would be perfect!! I wish I had seen them before I made those banners. I could have used them instead of the ribbons. Oh my goodness now my perfectionist trait is telling me to redo them. I may update them eventually, but I've spent too much time on them the past couple of days as it is, so I'll resist the urge to redo them for now.

    No need to redo them, I just read that you need banners and I didn't realize you already did it hehe! I didn't read the next two post hehe!! :blush:
    I also write non sims stuff on Wattpad
