"The creative world is a sacred place where we all pilgrimage for refreshment. The creative world is a fountain which provides us with the contentment, joy, excitement, fulfillment, and beauty that gives life quality and meaning." - W. Francis McBeth, American composer, 1994

Welcome to Custom Celebration…what is it now? 11!!!
Wow, CC11. Man, time has really flown by. First and foremost, I want to thank the site staff for carrying the weight of the site for the better part of the year while I dealt with a multitude of personal issues. While Custom Celebration is a team effort, bucky really got out in front for this year’s Celebration and spearheaded a lot of the groundwork. So if you end up liking what you see, you have him to thank for it. Second, I want to thank all of you, the members of this site and community. We are a niche inside a niche of a fleeting fandom. Every time someone remarks forums or the GI Joe community are dead, I come here and am constantly reminded of the old man from Monty Python’s Holy Grail “I'm not dead…I’m getting better.” Every post, every custom, every trial and error, keeps bringing us together. Every time someone asks me if they can donate their time, money, or toy prizes to the site, or I see a major outreach to someone in need I am reminded and humbled by your generosity. I get my share of praise and thanks, but I know I don’t thank all of you nearly enough for making this place what it is. More specifically, for making it such a special place for me. Thank you.
For those who have never been around for one of our Custom Celebrations, hold on tight. We are going to
waterboard you flood you overflow you
quench your thirst with challenges, contests, forum topics, articles, custom reveals, interviews, the JoeCustoms Awards and more. We’ve got several prize sponsors and donations lined up all to help motivate you. Your participation is key. Show off stuff, even if it just gets you started or knocks the dust off from something old. Jump into the discussions. I promise you, we have something of interest that you will like. Enjoy the ride.
Every morning we'll have a daily index with links, as well as a Master Index to check out stuff you may have missed.
