Anxious for updates

Anybody else finding themselves anxious for the next derby preview update? With all this stay-at-home time on my hands, I find myself checking the site frequently, hoping for a sneak peak so I can get rolling on designs! Haha!

Hope all are doing well, and the same can be said for your loved ones!

Wanted to thank @Lady5tark for choosing the theme of The Blues. Honestly, some of the most fun I’ve ever had with a theme! So much room for creative interpretation. Makes me crave more similar challenges in the future…color-related challenges in particular.

Can’t wait to sub my designs tonight! (giddy)

Bumping this thread since there’s no new theme posted yet, and it has lots of possible theme ideas within.

=)

Rabbits
Penguins
Turtles
Ninjas
Pirates
Sarcasm
Procrastination
Anti-sports sports
books
elitist self awareness
sci-fi
cute animals doing mundane things
ironic outdoor/wilderness
negative space wilderness
quotes from movies used inappropriately…
music
Did I miss anything? LOL

I vote for “Did I miss anything? LOL”

That’d be a fun derby
