Speaking of planning:  Clean and spiff up the studio in January, purge, sort and prioritize photos in February, kick Calvinball butt in March.  Plan done!

Hey Tori - There is another thread that shows the stats - it includes how many layouts people made and how many points they got for the crazy made up rules.  Yes, you can suggest rules - but that usually starts during the month of Calvinball.  And I think there will be a message board thread for that.   Glad to see you over here :)
