Confession time! Because there didn't seem to be much interest in the weekly challenges this year, when we got busy and forgot one, well… we didn't worry about it too much since stocking stuffers are always open. But we've had a request for weekly challenges, and we definitely want to make the exchange as accessible to everyone as possible, so we're bringing them back!

To make things as flexible and inspiring for everyone as possible, though, we're going to give you our list of all our challenge prompt ideas, and anyone can submit art for any fandom for any of the prompts throughout the month of December!

The Prompts


  • Warm Drinks

  • The Color of Winter

  • Ugly Sweaters

  • Still a Kid

  • Lights in the Dark

  • Winter Decor

  • Cookies!

  • Home for the Holidays

  • Family Gathering

  • DIY Decorations

  • Gifts Gone Wrong and Right

  • Surprises

  • Holiday Travel


We hope you find something to inspire you! Submission instructions are here.

As you've probably seen, stocking stuffer claims are now open! Details are here.

Request!


In past years we've always gotten loads of art early, but wouldn't you know it, the one year we count on this, we've only gotten a few. If you're able to turn in your art before the deadline, please do! Thanks in advance!

Weekly Challenge #1: WARM DRINKS!


Each week during December, we'll post a special challenge "theme" on Sunday, and artists will have through the following Saturday to turn in art based on that theme. Here's the details:
  • ANYONE CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE WEEKLY CHALLENGE! And when we say anyone, we mean anyone: If you wanted to participate in the main exchange this year but were unable to, here's your chance! Artists do not have to have signed up for the formal exchange to submit weekly challenge art. (Just make sure you're aware of our guidelines before submitting.)

  • Art can be for ANY fandom.

  • There is no limit for how many submissions you can make for the weekly challenge.

  • If you're taking part in the main exchange, you must have already submitted art for your first assignment to participate in a weekly challenge.

  • Submission instructions are here. (This is also linked on the community sidebar.)

Hi guys,

I've been under the weather the past couple of days and it completely slipped my mind to post the new weekly challenge on Sunday! Because it's taken me so long to post the theme, this week's theme can be extended into next week if you want to participate and need some more time. -Anita

THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE THEME:

FAMILIES COME IN ALL SHAPES AND SIZES

Title: Giant Holiday Fancookies
By: Mific
For: Afternoon tea
Media Used: flour, baking soda, butter, egg, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, soft brown sugar, confectioner's sugar, black food colouring.
Rating: G
Fandom(s): Sherlock (BBC) (Sherlock and John), Teen Wolf (Stiles and Derek)
Warnings: Not gluten-free (but entirely edible)
Summary: What it says on the tin. Gingerbread men, fandom-style.
Notes: Because I am strange, rather than Derek in nothing but an apron, this is what the "Holiday Cooking" prompt bunnied me with. I slightly overcooked most of them except Stiles, so they've got unusually deep tans. Each is about 5.5 inches by 4 inches, and they smell great. Once this is posted to Yuletart I'm going to put them on my journal and tumblr with a WIP layout about "my process". *snorfle* EDIT: Here's the promised post!

Hello everyone! We hope you're enjoying the great art we've already posted—We have LOTS more in store. This post is multi-purposed and a bit long, so we're going to break it down into sections, but they're all important, so please take a minute a read it all!

Etiquette Reminder


We've never ever had a problem with this, but we just wanted to remind everyone that love and effort have gone into every piece of art we showcase here, and you should at least be respectful of that even if the style or subject matter isn't your personal cup of tea. Also, don't forget that commenting to art posts is awesome, as it encourages artists to make MORE ART, and everybody loves that!

Stocking Stuffers


Finally, stocking stuffer claims will be opening tomorrow! (We needed to wait until we were sure we didn't need any pinch hits, and it looks like we're going to squeak by this year without any! Knock on wood!)

"Stocking stuffer" is a term we grabbed from Yuletide. A stocking stuffer is "quick art" done for one of the prompts unclaimed in the main exchange. (We'll have a new, updated list of what's still available tomorrow.) Stocking stuffers are just fun little extras, and aren't expected to be complex, polished pieces.

Stocking stuffer claims will close on 23 December, and they're due by 25 December at the latest. Artists may claim as many as they like, but only one at a time. (IE, you have to turn in your first before claiming your second.)

Weekly Challenge!


Because we want to encourage artists to make art as much as we can, this year we're going to try out a weekly challenge during the month of December.
