      And you can't say you haven't been reminded repeatedly, almost every
      month.

      There will be a Folio because it is required. How big it ends up
      being... that's up to you.

        I got a design in this year's folio.  :)

        It was my favorite, too.  Always nice to have other people like a design you liked.

        The folio was pretty good sized this year & lots of new designing talent as well as returning.
