Lots and lots……

 OPAM ...

(or for the uninitiated ... One Project A Month ...)

will be happening again in 2011!!

Lots of you OPAMers have been asking Kris and I whether OPAM will be running again next year, so I thought I'd let you know that it WILL be ... but we'll be starting a little later than the last two years. I will be joining  my gorgeous partner in crime Kris again to co-host OPAM 2011 ... we've had so much fun this year, that we both wanted to spin the wheel again and we are hoping you will join us…

Kris and I will both be letting you know more about the guidelines etc for OPAM 2011 in the New Year, but I just wanted to say YES it's happening ... BUT (there's always a "But" isn't there! :0) This is only a small "But"!!) sign up won't be opened until towards the END of January 2011. PLEASE STAY TUNED ... for more details in the New Year.

Lots of photos in this post………….
