        I will post a Wip on the one I started, I am just worried that I am taking on to much with a local contest going on next month, and a co-worker wanting a BDSM fairy type person that I am just getting started. Before all this I still need to finish my twilight knight off and a little fellow for her that is almost done painting it as a gift for Christmas thank fully I got 8 more days before I have to wrap it up. :headbutt:

                sorry guys, but is there an error here? by my calendar the 21st of February 2013 is actually a Thursday? So is the 28th. Is that correct?

                  I'd go with Thursday, the 21st / 28th, one week prior & the end of the month, unless Darklord says otherwise.
