If I get a chance to get some additional good photos, I could do another month. It doesn't matter to me when, and hope this helps. :)

Merethe, I can do any month except December. Too much frantic shopping and cookie baking to be done.

I would like to host November or December, if possible?

I can host December. If I know it's coming I can get some good photos and a neat challenge ready. I don't have other major things going on in December except the holidays so that'll be a lot of fun.

Question, would it be okay to include photos that I already used when I hosted a Weekend Drawing Event? I picked out my sixteen best for that and don't know if I should sort from "everything but the WDE ones" or all of my photos to pick the ones for the challenge. It's not a problem if the answer is no, because I could always just set up a new still life or something or go out again.

I also have a wicked nasty challenge to suggest too. hehehe...

I enjoyed hosting a lot and would be happy to do it again, but would like a summer month like June or July so that I can get outside for good photography right around the time I'm doing it. I can't do it the month with Labor Day Weekend because of a conflicting writing challenge, so August or September would not be real good. October and November have other commitments too, and I did December this time but would prefer a time of year when I'm in really good shape physically. So I'll go for June or July 2010 if that's cool.

I would like to try my hand at hosting too. I could do February if you have no takers, otherwise August or September, although I'm away for a weekend in sept.
