I just had to share this. Below I mentioned that I got the Relativity poster for Christmas. Well, our 5 y/o daughter drew her own version. It's so cute, I had to post it up.
Oh, and I'm back to over 350 messages to respond to on this account!
And sorry to spam you again, but I forgot to add this lovely Secret Santa gift to my list below. i feel so bad because the person deactivated and I hope it wasn't because they felt I didn't like it. I have just been so busy to comment more on it, but I love it much.
It took HOURS, but I got through my message center. Now, to tackle my Alt account!
Christmas turned out better than I feared. We concentrated on the kids and while it wasn't the huge gift-fest of long years past, it was lovely and they were happy.
I only got one gift (aside from a little cash for bills), but it was a good one. My sister bought me a print of my Relativity poster. I have wanted one for so long but simply didn't have the money to get it! I love my sister. She was so generous to me and the kids, despite having a hard year herself. I also thank *Elengwat
for working with my daughter, *RandomyPurple
to coordinate the whole print thing.
I really worried I wouldn't have something to give `Ravenswd
under the tree, but thanks to ^SparklyDest
, I did. I commissioned her to make croctopi of our OC's, Minnie and Jamocha. I have to tell you, they are even more adorable in person. Plus, these are AMAZING pieces. Well-crafted and constructed. Far worth the price.
Here is a pic with the whole gang--the monkeys, Dark Flame, and Rasterman
I am not a person who talks of my religion a lot, but I do have to say at this time that it really is my faith (along with the support of my friends) that got me through this very hard period. A few small blessings recently really did help the holiday turn out okay and I am thankful for that. However, I am so happy to see this holiday season go...as well as 2011.
I am coming up on 200,000 pageviews. I have to admit, I was really excited about this a while ago, but it just kinda seem blah now. I'm still behind on prize gifts, so would be unfair to promise something like that. Anybody have any ideas? Maybe it should just pass without anything.
I have given my profile a bit of a sprucing-up, with a slightly modified layout featuring graphics that are more generally wintery as we move into January. I much like how everything is, so I think I shall keep it for a while.
Still not 100% so I'll leave it here. More next week.
