Secret Santa 2007!

Welcome to Secret Santa 2007!

Started be [Just.Kate] last year, it's running again this year! The idea is the same - everyone who wants to draw, paint, or photograph, and receive a piece of art in return, sign up below - because we're starting late this year, the deadline is going to be the 1st January, 2008.

How does this work? Everyone person be given a person chosen randomly to draw a picture for, and in turn - someone has been assigned to draw a picture for you! But please note: you will not receive the art that was drawn for you, if you don't submit the drawing you were supposed to do!

Sign up ends on Friday the 14th - that's the end of this week, so sign up now, and tell your friends - the more the merrier!

So, here's what to do:

1. Sign up below, listing your username, and any preference you may have for your Christmas present (having no preference is cool too). If it's a character of yours you want drawing, you need to post a description/picture on this wiki - because obviously, you won't know who is drawing your present, so you won't be able to give them the info yourself.

2. On the 15th, you will receive the name of the person whom you will be making a present for - don't forget to check to see if they wanted anything specifically!

3. Get your art in by the 1st of January! Send the completed piece to [Draugluin] (Who will take care of the technical aspects, so that no one involved will know beforehand who's drawn what for them)

4. Receive your gift, be thankful, merry and spread festive spirit - it won't be too late! :)

Username (or number or email):


2007-12-11 [Linderel]: Yaoi bandwagon <3 *slobbers Trin*

2007-12-11 [Duke Devlin]: YUMMY TOM FELTON

2007-12-11 [Titanium Tiger]: this is such an awsome Idea!!^^ WAY TO GO!!

2007-12-11 [Artsieladie]: I'd be glad to participate, but I'm afraid my art wouldn't fit into most of the requests here. :'( I'll be glad to help advertise this, though. Have fun, everyone! :)

2007-12-11 [Duke Devlin]: Aww you should try anyway! ><

2007-12-11 [Yuriona]: I'd like to participate but I know already I won't get anything done in time. Far too busy this time of year.

2007-12-11 [The Red Baron]: I'd like to join, but I'm a tad reserved this year...

2007-12-11 [SilverFire]: If it's a problem with how it was run last year, then you must bear in mind it's being run by another person. Otherwise, well, it's your choice.

Artsie - I'd say go for it anyway. :) You can definitely do *some* of the things on the list - hell, I'm not too keen on drawing some people's preferences, but if I get them I'll take it as good practice. :P

2007-12-11 [Yuriona]: Eh? No, whether I had a problem with the person who ran it last year is quite irrelevant. I simply don't have time to do a gift art for this. *shrugs*

2007-12-11 [Duke Devlin]: Exactly! It's all great practise. I mean if you can manage to please someone, who you have never met or talked to in particular, then you have achieved something! And you get a great present in return from another member =)
I see no problems =D

2007-12-11 [Artsieladie]: Animals, elves, fairies, uni's &, humanity, & respect... These can stimulate my inspiration, but movie & game characters, for e.g., do nothing for my inspiration. I think it's great that others are, but it's just not in me. That's all. ;)

2007-12-11 [Duke Devlin]: Yeh I can understand that, but it's not really about what inspires people, it's more about what people would like, and how we can give it to them =) That's what I think anyway.
Trying is better than not.

2007-12-11 [Rice]: SHUT UP YOU HYENA JOKE*to [Duke Devlin]*

2007-12-11 [Artsieladie]: Er, maybe... What works for one, doesn't necessarily work for another, 'tis all I'm saying. ;)

2007-12-11 [Duke Devlin]: [Rice] PAH. You are a STICK, Scarecrow XP
Yeh, I get that. We're all trying even though say... 'cute. flowery, butterflys, fairies, dragons, unicorns'... aren't necessary our style, or someone doesn't like Batman for example. It's just that we wanna give people stuff =)

2007-12-11 [Rice]: STICK..STICK..ok that was to far ¬¬'re sleeping on the sofa tonight!

2007-12-11 [SilverFire]: I wasn't talking to you, Yuriona. ;)

I was talking to Red Baron.

2007-12-11 [Duke Devlin]: [Rice] Nooo!! You can't do this to me Crow!!! <3 ;.;

2007-12-12 [Titanium Tiger]: lol

2007-12-12 [The Red Baron]: The Red Baron got the message.

2007-12-12 [Yuriona]: :) Oh ok then.. sorry about popping off like that. ^^;

2007-12-12 [Anvikit]: aww, it's just for fun... you can draw and interpret what is wanted anyway you want :) I can tell you for sure that I'm not gonna be drawing any gay harry potter porn.. :P Best thing is to just have fun and do your best :)

2007-12-12 [moira hawthorne]: I think people should give a wide varity to their requests... naughty to nice... so the gifting artist doesnt feel uncomfortable... morally...

not everyone feels comfortable with yaoi or even any sex

so ask for nice and you can add naughty if you like that as a bonus

2007-12-12 [SilverFire]: A 'preference' is just that, it's not a demand. ;) Everyone needs to know that just because they set a preference, doesn't mean they'll necessarily get it - if an artist doesn't feel comfortable drawing something, that's cool. However, if people could drop [Draugluin] a hint that they have a problem with drawing something, then he can take that into consideration when assigning people their "victim". :P

2007-12-12 [Fireblade K'Chona]: ...if I wrote a sonnet, would that count to give a gift? :D

alternately I could photograph, poems have a lot more of me in them.

2007-12-12 [moira hawthorne]: I can vouch for that!

2007-12-12 [SilverFire]: poems are fine.

2007-12-12 [Fireblade K'Chona]: Fo realz? -signs up-

2007-12-12 [Cathos]: I'm getting excited already, really looking forward to having a go at whatever I get. They all look like they could be fun to do. :D

2007-12-12 [moira hawthorne]: I think I will died if I have to do a protrait of a real person fantasy chary... you know.. anything with a real live human actor... Ive been in a art slump for months on months... I dont think Im up to that type of challenge... *fails* otherwise Im getting anxious to start so Ill have time to finish... Im not a fast painter... *bites nails*

2007-12-12 [Cathos]: *hugs* Don't worry, seems like everyone is giving several alternatives so far. If you get really stuck, you could find a friend to collaborate with.

2007-12-12 [moira hawthorne]: good idea... I think Im gonna go draw a real fat fairy sitting on and squishing a toolstool... dont ask where that thought came from... but Im gonna run with it...

2007-12-12 [dayah]: hahah nice idea moira...giggles..

2007-12-12 [moira hawthorne]: too many candy canes, sugar drops, gingerbread cookiees and plum pudding!!!

2007-12-12 [dayah]:


2007-12-12 [Angelis Nightfall]: O.O It's a fat fairy! ** Laughs then giggles at the fat fairy.**<img:44166_1164218094.gif>

2007-12-12 [moira hawthorne]: thx Night Angel ... its fun to colour again... hey for your request... did you want a subject? as in a figure/character or anything...??? or just colours?

2007-12-12 [Angelis Nightfall]: It could be anything, it would be an animal, a character or even my name, it dosn't really matter.

2007-12-12 [dayah]: oh thats sooo cute...fat faery...makes me think of my little jynx..heheh.

2007-12-12 [moira hawthorne]: ooooh? is she Jinx? hummm... did your faery steal my brain? she must have wanted to be drawn since you are drawing Aodh...

2007-12-12 [Synsae]: hmmmm, this sounds like fun... though I do not think I can do anything involving drawing or painting... something I'll have to consider...

2007-12-12 [Duke Devlin]: Well as Silvie said somewhere above, poetry is fine, so I would assume that a story or something similar would be too, as long as it either fits their preferrences, or it works well =D I don't know XD

2007-12-12 [Synsae]: sorry... I am a photographer (not a good one unfortunately)... I should have mentioned I could at least do that...

2007-12-12 [dayah]: Maybe soo...shes been despretly looking for some one to draw here..heheh my little chubby faery who just can't get anythign right.....giggles *huggles chubby faery*

2007-12-12 [SilverFire]: Photography is fine, as well. :)

2007-12-12 [Duke Devlin]: Hehe I thought that was a given XD

2007-12-12 [moira hawthorne]: @daya: fine.. she is hereby Jinx!!! *blews horn* Ill move her to your aodh wiki and we can chat there

2007-12-12 [dayah]: okiday...whoohoo..:D

2007-12-12 [Angelis Nightfall]: i let my sisters little baby listen to the nightmare before Christmas song called whats this & she loved it, she just cooed & danced to it. <img:44166_1164144892.gif> I'm going to have that baby hooked on that movie like me.

2007-12-12 [moira hawthorne]: its a very animated voice... I can see why she liked it

2007-12-12 [Angelis Nightfall]: She is only 8 months old, it was awesome & the smile on her face! YAY i'm getting Gracie hooked on it!

2007-12-13 [Duke Devlin]: I love that filn, it is amazing =D I love the song 'What's This!' XD

2007-12-13 [Lord Dog]: my two year old loved that song when they were playing clips of that and "This is Halloween" on Disney around Halloween

2007-12-13 [Mom]: You must get Muppet Christmas Carol...It's just not Christmas without it playing at our house. lol

2007-12-13 [Lord Dog]: Well This year they have watched every special down the pike from Charlie Brown to Shrek the Halls Even Winnie the Pooh and Christmas too

2007-12-13 [Mom]: Yeah but mu hubby and I love the movie too.It's not Christmas without Muppets,It's a Wonderful Life and Christmas Vacation. <img:44166_1164144892.gif>

2007-12-13 [Synsae]: hmmm... can't say I have a favorite Christmas movie... all are good... well, there is one Christmas movie I could live without...

2007-12-13 [Artsieladie]: I love "The Christmas Shoes", even though I always cry & now, I really cry. :'(

2007-12-13 [Duke Devlin]: I remember when they used to play 'The Land Before Time' EVERY year XP
Anyone else in the UK remember that? XD

2007-12-13 [Lord Dog]: Actually I Used to watch "It's a Wonderful Life , Miracle on 34th Street and Scrooge/A Christmas Carol every year as well as Muppets Charlie Brown and The Grinch. For a while there they stopped airing Rudolph and the rest of the Rankin/Bass specials but they brought them back two years ago

2007-12-13 [Duke Devlin]: I remember watching A Christmas Carol as well XD Though not the others, The Grinch more recently though

2007-12-13 [moira hawthorne]: I love the modern Scroooge with Bill Muray... the faery cracks me up!

2007-12-13 [Duke Devlin]: Hehe I haven't seen it >< I wish I had now though XD

2007-12-13 [Lord Dog]: Scrooged w/ Bill Murray is a good one but I actually like the old musical version where Scrooge ends up in Hell with Jacob Marley piling coils of chains and cash boxes on top of him and he wakes up on Christmas wrapped in his bedsheets lie the coils. The song by Christmas Present and Scrooge was calling "I like life " or somethingit was an early 80s production I think

2007-12-13 [Angelis Nightfall]: Yea i tottaly agree with [Mom] on the muppets, they are just as cool as nightmare before christmas.

2007-12-14 [Calico Tiger]: My favorite is that Christmas Story movie. Everyone needs a Red Rider BB gun to shoot their eye out with!

2007-12-14 [Angelis Nightfall]: Oh but you most not forget the leg lamp, thats like the second best thing in the movie! Oh not to mention your mom bundling you up in so many warm clothes that you can hardly move.

2007-12-14 [Fireblade K'Chona]: And getting your tongue stuck to the flagpole. :P

2007-12-14 [Angelis Nightfall]: Yea that to, gosh i can't believe i forgot to mention the fun in getting your tongue stuck to a flag pole. Oh! Not to mention the freaky santa inside the mall, you know the one who pushes you down a slide & uses his boot in your face to do it.

2007-12-14 [Calico Tiger]: Ohhhhhhhh fuuudddggge......

2007-12-14 [Lord Dog]: Yeah TBs used to do an 24 hour Marathon of that either Christmas Eve or Thanksgiving Day

"Fra-gee-lay...Must be French...And there in the window..Electric Sex"

2007-12-14 [Angelis Nightfall]: lol

2007-12-14 [Titanium Tiger]: ok so today it the 15th are we getting seperate emails? or is it anounce on here? of course that wouldnt be very secret!!! *thinking out loud* well I dunno lets me kno ehy!!

2007-12-14 [SilverFire]: Except it's not the 15th... it's the 14th.

2007-12-14 [Cathos]: Oh, the joys of different timezones! Why don't we use ET time. Would that be fair on everyone?

2007-12-14 [Titanium Tiger]: sounds good to me!!

2007-12-14 [dayah]: fine by me

2007-12-14 [SilverFire]: I'm sorry, I was working on the assumption that everyone had already figured we'd be using ET time. ;)

2007-12-14 [dayah]: giggles.

2007-12-14 [moira hawthorne]: there is an odd number...

2007-12-14 [SilverFire]: Then I'll do two, no biggy.

2007-12-14 [Cathos]: If the person assigning the gifts rearranged the list, then gave people the person below them in the new list to make the gift for (and the last person got the first person), it wouldn't matter if there was an odd number.

2007-12-14 [Lord Dog]: Yeah the chain method works well with any number pairing up names ruins the Secret part

2007-12-14 [Yncke]: If the list is mixed up, the only thing you know is that the person you're making a present for is not the one making your present. A little of the secret is revealed, but not much, really. :)

2007-12-14 [Lord Dog]: Yeah, I am actually looking forward to this. I will have Drawer's Cramp by the end of this and my Scroll list but Whoo hooo

2007-12-14 [moira hawthorne]: Ive been practicing...

art by [moira hawthorne]
Jinx is [dayah]'s OC fairy character

2007-12-14 [SilverFire]: Yeah, I realised that after I posted, I was in a rush at the time. ;)

2007-12-14 [Fireblade K'Chona]: I'm totally ready to write a sonnet. Possibly two, if I'm really inspired. :)

2007-12-14 [Akayume]: Sonnets.. I find those to be really difficult. :/

2007-12-15 [Fireblade K'Chona]: I love 'em. :) And that's why I'm doing it for my gift and not you...

2007-12-15 [Jitter]: I have to drop out. Photoshop has given the off.

2007-12-15 [Angelis Nightfall]: OMG FAT FAIRY!!!!!!!!

2007-12-15 [Zab]: how to mix the gift recievers wishes with my own...

2007-12-15 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: I'm not in time for entering?

2007-12-15 [SilverFire]: No, sorry.

2007-12-15 [Jitter]: Unless they take my place *shrug*

2007-12-15 [moira hawthorne]: I think that is fair... Gato takes Jitter's spot... easiest way to fix the hole without changing alot of other names...

2007-12-15 [Kyrinn]: Awww, darn. If I had seen this earlier I might have done it. *grin* Oh well, next year then. 

2007-12-15 [SilverFire]: Actually the way we fixed the problem was just as easy. And we fixed it before we saw Gato's comment.

2007-12-15 [Paul Doyle]: Yep, unless we have a "Secret Santa in July 2008" I'm not going to have anything done. Quality things take time. xD

2007-12-15 [Duke Devlin]: You just have to work quickly ;)
I'm sure we'll all do great! =D

2007-12-15 [Paul Doyle]: Be sure to have plenty of coffee on hand. A must, for these trying times.

2007-12-15 [Duke Devlin]: Tea yeh, Coffee nope =) Don't like it ;)
But you're right, definitely caffiene is a must!

2007-12-15 [Paul Doyle]: Green tea with a bit of ginseng and a twist of lemon and honey? Desperate times call for desperate measures.

2007-12-15 [Duke Devlin]: Haha, no. Normal tea will do just fine ;)

2007-12-15 [Kyrinn]: *LOL @ [Paul Doyle]* You got that about right. Ill have to start now to do something for next year. XD Darn graphics job sucking away all my free time. <img:stuff/BR-GIF.gif>

2007-12-15 [Lord Dog]: Coffee makes me happy

2007-12-15 [Titanium Tiger]: sweet !! this is so cool!!

2007-12-16 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: how unlucky... merry christmas to everyone, Maybe next year :)

2007-12-16 [Duke Devlin]: Yes! Enter it next year!
If it is run anyway! 00

2007-12-16 [moira hawthorne]: Gato you can always just make someone something...
Daya and I exchanged art... and Night_Owl and I are aswell... plus I signed on here... I know people on DA and Y! and TFT who are doing the Secret Santa things or some other art gift exchange...

2007-12-17 [Lady Ice]: what if i dont know what the person i got's request is?? I've never heard of what he asked for....

2007-12-17 [moira hawthorne]: you could google... and if you aren really stuck... its just a request

2007-12-17 [Titanium Tiger]: so after we have done them do we post them back here or do we mail it to the person? or both

2007-12-17 [SilverFire]: No, post them to [Draugluin].

2007-12-17 [Titanium Tiger]: ok kewl!

2007-12-23 [Angelis Nightfall]: Hey so sorry that i have been away everyone, i have been really sick & i still am. I have a bad cold, a bad cough, sinus infection & an ear infection in both ears so yea i have not been able to get on to much. Also been busy with cleaning even though i'm sick & i have been trying to rest up to get this to go away before christmas yet it has not worked so far so it looks like i will be sick through christmas.

2007-12-23 [Duke Devlin]: Sorry to hear that ><

2007-12-23 [moira hawthorne]: what happens if someone doesnt get their gift finished by the 1st of January b/c of being sick computer failure or horrid art block?

2007-12-23 [SilverFire]: They should message [Draugluin], first and foremost. Explain what happened, and how soon they *will* be able to complete the art piece.

2007-12-24 [Lord Dog]: Sorry to hear that, [Angelis Nightfall] may you get a Christmas Miracle in the form of Good Health

2007-12-24 [Lite]: hmmm... seems like im late. maybe next year...

2007-12-24 [Fireblade K'Chona]: I've gotta start writing my sonnet. Hmm.

2007-12-25 [Angelis Nightfall]: Thanks [Lord Dog] & everyone else. I do need to message [Draugluin], because i might not be able to get this thing done soon & i really want to make the person i'm making the gift for really good to. I don't want to give my person anything bad looking, cause i would not be happy with myself. ** sniffles.**<img:stuff/sh-gif.gif>

2007-12-25 [moira hawthorne]: the piece Im working on is coming... slowly painfully... I hate art blocks... I got work done but its like pushing a river uphill with a broom!!! I really hope I can get it done on time...

2007-12-25 [Lord Dog]: Yeah I Can relate, my piece is stuck it sketch phase While I work out Calculations

2007-12-25 [moira hawthorne]: and for all of us with children... its hard to get time to draw.

2007-12-25 [SilverFire]: Everyone has duties and different obligations that limit the time we can work on our art - some people have kids, other people have medical problems, some people have work, others are students and have essays to do. But the less time we spend complaining about it, the more time we have to draw. ;) Let's all jsut do teh best that we can. :)

2007-12-25 [Lord Dog]: Yep true enough I get some spare time it will be done most Calculations are worked out during naptimes

2007-12-25 [Mom]: I haven't even started mine yet but if I have to sit up all night long the night before it will be done and it will be done nicely. It will be done! ...

2007-12-25 [Duke Devlin]: I have done half of mine =D So hopefully I will be done by the twenty ninth =D

2007-12-26 [dayah]: most of mine is finished...just needed a break this week to get away from it all enough stress from the holidays doesn't help the artistic bug hit very well..:P

2007-12-26 [Lord Dog]: Mine is progressing finally

2007-12-26 [moira hawthorne]: so is mine... slowly... got some more done this evening

2007-12-26 [Angelis Nightfall]: I actually finished mine a while ago surprisingly, i was supper surprised that i finished it.

2007-12-26 [Lord Dog]: I had a funny setback, we got the girls art supplies so that they could be just like daddy. So they both decided to "help me finish" my first few sketches

2007-12-26 [moira hawthorne]: oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

2007-12-26 [Angelis Nightfall]: Oh no thats got to be a hard thing to deal with, i used to have to help my brother & his wife take care of their three girls & they got a hold of my sketch book one day then started coloring all in it. I had been in high school at the time & it was my art class sketch book, so i had to redo my whole drawing that i was doing for a grade in class.

2007-12-26 [moira hawthorne]: Ha! I think nearly everyone who has had contact with children has a story similar to that... its happened to me and Ive heard it from many friends...

2007-12-26 [Fireblade K'Chona]: ouch. -wince- That's the nice thing about poetry. If someone colors on it, you don't usually have to weep tears of blood to get it looking nice again, you just copy it over.

2007-12-26 [Lord Dog]: Well they were just rough sketches. Not like when they "Colored" one of My scrolls for the SCA

2007-12-26 [Angelis Nightfall]: That really has to suck. >.<

2007-12-27 [Lord Dog]: A little, it was almost done and I had to start over

2007-12-27 [Angelis Nightfall]: Yea thats not cool at all, because when your so close to finishing something you have this proudness about yourself for getting as far as you did & as close to the end as you had gotten. Then when something happened to it, you just crash & feel all bleh about it. It makes you slightly sick to your stomach, because you know you have to start all over & thats the worst feeling you can get as an artist.

2007-12-27 [Lord Dog]: especially when it's a painting and actually fairly decent well for me anyway

2007-12-27 [Angelis Nightfall]: Yea i know what you mean, it really sucks when you feel that it's a good drawing, painting or sketch.

2007-12-27 [Fireblade K'Chona]: Hm, despite trying, every bit of poetry I've attempted is tripe.

-goes to poke through photos-

2007-12-28 [Angelis Nightfall]: I bet your writings are way better than like, mine are terrible & if you don't believe me then have a look at my DA page.

2007-12-28 [Fireblade K'Chona]: Meh, I'm good with photos; there are times when I just don't feel it, writing-wise, and I've learned through experience that it's best for me just to let it pass.

And don't belittle yourself, darling! I'll be back when I look at your DA page, but don't push yourself down before you've even started!

2007-12-28 [Fireblade K'Chona]: Right, okay, Night Angel, I went and looked at your page. Firstly, I would like to state that I have been hanging around on the GAFF boards for nearly three years now. GAFF is short for Godawful Fan Fiction, and on those forums I have seen some of the worst writings in the English language, EVER. Surviving on GAFF that long is sort of equivalent to taking an intensive course in good vs. bad literature, so trust me, I know what I'm talking about.

Your writings aren't bad. I'd suggest getting an editor, because they're rough. But they aren't bad.

I know what 'bad' is, and what's on your DA page isn't.

2007-12-28 [Angelis Nightfall]: <.< >.> ummmm ok thanks.<img:stuff/sh-gif.gif>

2007-12-28 [moira hawthorne]: 23:26:21 Fireblade K'Chona: Hm, despite trying, every bit of poetry I've attempted is tripe.... dont you dare believe that! <img:stuff/aodh%20chibi%20mad.png> you are an awesome poet!

2007-12-28 [Titanium Tiger]: ok so Im not going to be able to get my entry up until after new yaeras!! is that ok?

2007-12-28 [Angelis Nightfall]: You just need to message [Draugluin] & let them know about it.

2007-12-28 [Fireblade K'Chona]: moira: thanks ever so much. :P What I meant was 'every bit of poetry I've attempted for Secret Santa 2007 is tripe.'

I kind of cycle through my creativity stages. Unfortunately right now I'm at a low ebb in my poetry skillz. It'll come back. I'm not worried. :)

2007-12-28 [moira hawthorne]: ooooooh ok I understand that! yup... Im art blocked... but Im struggling still with this piece... its not flowing like Id want ... but Im making progress anyways... I want it to be beautiful for the person I got... Im sure you will succeed in the end aswell...

2007-12-28 [Mom]: *Does the I'm finished dance* I really like it too!=\ But then I would have to or I wouldn't give it as a gift. *Sigh* Now I hope the person likes it.

2007-12-28 [moira hawthorne]: ooooh good for you! =D (not sarcasm incase you thought it was)

2007-12-28 [Cathos]: I have a sketch, but the background of the picture is currently stumping me. The colour should be nice and quick, once everything is finally blocked out. I wuv my big box of acrylics. :)

2007-12-28 [Anvikit]: I've got mine sketched just need to get around to inking and coloings :D whee! first doodle in my new huge!!! sketchbook.. lol looks so small in my massive new book.. lol it's among 3 other doodles on the same first page..

Hope everyone had a good christmas!

2007-12-28 [Duke Devlin]: For mine to actually end up looking good, it has to be on the computer XD So all computer work for me :) About halfway still though XD

2007-12-29 [nehirwen]: I've finished and send my gift to draugluin a few days ago :) I was inspired ;)

2007-12-29 [Cia_mar]: i have the sketch of mine done... i hope to color it too though
i hope

2007-12-29 [Yncke]: I've stopped fussing about silly details, en sent the gift to [Draugluin] too. :)

2007-12-29 [Duke Devlin]: Hehe I just work slowly :)
But don't y'all worry, I will get it done in time, I always manage to get the REALLY important stuff done...
Shut up Crow XP Don't you say anything XD <3

2007-12-29 [Lord Dog]: So my muse visited me late at night Thursday/ Early Morning Friday, kicked me in the head and jabbed me with my pencils to wake me up. Bugged me all day Yesterday with notions and visions. Did give me a reprieve to watch"The Golden Compass" but started in again this morning...Needless to say...Art done and sent

2007-12-29 [Duke Devlin]: Ooo good for you =D

2007-12-29 [Lord Dog]: Thanks

2007-12-29 [Cia_mar]: how was the golden compass?

2007-12-29 [Lord Dog]: Really Good I thought, lots of action . Nothing too hokey (except for Pan and the ending ) Visually awesome. Flowed real well. The story was quainter than the whole. Not for small children. Both the wife and I liked it, which says something because we generally don't like the same movies. 

2007-12-29 [nehirwen]: I've seen it too this week, great movie ^^

2007-12-29 [Mom]: We saw it too...I was sorry to see it end. There just has to be a part two. If you want to have some fun go to the Offical site and find out what deamon you have.

2007-12-29 [nehirwen]: it's part one of a trilogy...right? O.o or am I wrong..

2007-12-29 [Lord Dog]: As far as I know, oh and I saw Narnia:Prince Caspian is coming out in May

2007-12-29 [Linderel]: You have read His Dark Materials... right?
(Alright, I confess, I've seen the first Narnia movie without having read the series. But still.)

2007-12-29 [SilverFire]: At least Narnia's worth reading.

2007-12-29 [Linderel]: It's on my list. My long, long, loooong list.

2007-12-29 [nehirwen]: I didn't know the second movie is coming out in May, but I totally love the books and the first movie so I'm definitely going to see it ^^
(I've read the whole Narnia series as a kid, and 2 years back again :) one of the rare occasions I read a book twice, it's worth reading indeed)

2007-12-30 [moira hawthorne]: just saw Sweeney Todd! I loved it! Bill thought it was ok... going to take the kids to the Golden Compass on Monday
oh and still struggling with the gift art since Bill saw it and wasnt impressed and I thought it was coming along ok now... *headdesk*

2007-12-30 [Lord Dog]: His Dark Materials? is that part of Golden Compass trilogy? I am thinking of getting the books
I used to have an Anthology book that had all the Narnia books abridged into one (it was sold in a Moving sale when I was 12 and only into Sci Fi and Superheroes)

2007-12-30 [Triola]: The Golden Compass is book one in the His Dark Materials trilogy ;) The others are The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass :)

2007-12-30 [Lord Dog]: I don't think I ever read them, although I may have read Compass at the most. The story seemed vaguely familiar to me as I watched.

2007-12-31 [Cia_mar]: YEA!!! I FINISHED!!! *sighs in exhaustion*....

2007-12-31 [Elisha Kelly]: I ended up do a photo :) I stated a drawing, but the kids just can't behave for more than five minutes... speaking of which... here comes one now!

2007-12-31 [Fireblade K'Chona]: I wound up doing a photo too, though it's quite a nice one, I think.

2008-01-02 [Anvikit]: ACK!! I'mma be a day late.. sorry birthdays and sore babies.. but School starts back tomorrow so whee!! I'll get it in then.

2008-01-02 [Angelis Nightfall]: <.< >.> v.v I finished my art drawing for the person i was to make ti for, but i don't think i did to well & not to mention the fact i was still sick when i did it. Yet this is what i can say, if the person who i made it for didn't like it, then message me & i will make up for it with a free request on something of their choice.

2008-01-02 [moira hawthorne]: my hubby is back to work tomorrow... but school doesnt start till monday... Im late! and off to bed soon as Im too tired now to paint any more

2008-01-02 [Angelis Nightfall]: Well i hope you sleep good Morira, i'm sure you well deserve it & have a good day tomorrow. Sweet dreams & take care.

2008-01-02 [moira hawthorne]: ahhhh thx u... hope everyone had a wonderful holiday... and happy new year... I did... soory you were sick over the holidays Night Angel

2008-01-02 [Angelis Nightfall]: Ah it's alright i am better now, all save for my knee & my back hurting. It will pass in time though, but sleep well & yea hope everyone else had a good holiday as well as new year.

2008-01-03 [moira hawthorne]: I get focused and the world goes away... the house could burn down... I almost went to sleep at 4am... I had finished the girls... and I sat up and thought 'there! Ill save that...' and than I thought Ill just see if I can do the bows... see if I can do the idea I had in my head from the beginning... next thing I knew they were finished...

2008-01-03 [Duke Devlin]: Well I am happy for you ^^ I hope I am so dedicated one day ^^
