    I’m a Christmas Child Theme specialist. Let me at it!

    • Justin Tadlock

      Awesome! I’m excited about seeing a good Christmas design. I’m hoping to make one myself for this theme, particularly one that I can use on my own blog.

  5. Sami Keijonen

    You might have guessed but yes please.

  6. syed

  9. David Chandra

    count me in.
    so curious in how to implement hc.2 in theme.
    and the theme looks lovely. ( maybe because snsd video )

    i’m not so good with colors. maybe i should name the child theme “color-me-bad”.

    • Justin Tadlock

      Are you a fan? I’ve been following their music since I lived in Korea (I moved there the year the group was formed). Yep, I so just lost a ton of cool points. πŸ™‚

      Glad to have you on board with the project.

      • David Chandra

        i’m not sure i want to say this.
        yes, i’m a fan πŸ™‚

        i can name all members… by age order.
        (There goes all my cool points.)

      • Justin Tadlock

        I have SNSD artwork. Really. I gave my students an assignment about their favorite celebrities. I still have a box saved with the work they let me keep.

      • David Chandra

        waahh… thats cool..
        (are you sure they let you keep them ? gehehe.. just kidding)

        while checking options theme posts @ your blog, i saw the links to your amazon wishlist, and saw several korean dramas.

        dramas, no one can write them like korean.

        I bought you “coffee prince” one of the best.

      • Justin Tadlock

        waahh… thats cool..
        (are you sure they let you keep them ? gehehe.. just kidding)

        Yep. A lot of the kids were really interested in making sure their foreign teachers got the full cultural experience.

  24. Selena Strain

    Count me in too. Gives me an excuse to design something new for fun again.

    • Justin Tadlock

      That’s what it’s all about — just having a little fun with design. I’m hoping this will offer a nice break for some folks who don’t get to do that as much anymore.

  25. Tiyo Kamtiyono

    I am not sure that you will send me an email next week, but I hope so. Count me in Justin πŸ™‚

  26. Ozh

    Hey Justin, sounds like good news for the design impaired coders like me πŸ™‚ I’d like to have a peek at this if you will. Cheers!

    • Justin Tadlock

      Actually, I had designers more in mind than coders. But, these days, it’s easier for us coders to make prettier designs with things like icon fonts and CSS3. We don’t have to muck around in Photoshop nearly as much.

      I’ll definitely send an email your way.

  27. ynwa

    I don’t know how much use I can be or how I can help… but I’ll certainly try! +1

    Don’t worry though if you just missed out. The theme will be released publicly soon. You’ll still have plenty of time to get in on the fun.
