Christmas Cards are IN THE MAIL!



Penguins!!! XD


I've always handmade my cards so I hope you all end up liking them a lot! And forgive slight mistakes where I draw a little past boundary lines This year I made seventeen cards, each taking about an hour to do between sketching, outlining, coloring, inking, creating the back logo, the inside calligraphy message, and the actual personal message. *breathes* I'm sure if I was actually a super fantastic artist, it would have looked better and would have been done faster. I digress - now I'm just rambling out loud.

When you do get them in the mail, please let me know that you did! ^^
You can even color the back logo and post a picture for me if you want :)

In other news, as I rediscovered today while sub teaching, Social Studies is the bane of the elementary school student. There is just something about a subject that requires reading, being able to make inferences, determining what's important, and using critical thinking that is just SO HARD for children these days. -.-

And I haven't written anything PoT/FE related for seven days or Hetalia for five. Nice to take a breather! Also, I went to see Les Miserables last Saturday in the nearby city. It was a pretty darn good production, but I felt as though a lot of the songs were faster paced than they should have been (seeing that I've listened to the 10th Anniversary concert about a hundred times lol). At least 'Bring Him Home' was so touching!! <3

Huuur now I'd feel a little weird if I just sent you one of the cards we buy at the store. Haa haa. I am now compelled to make my own card for you. You worked so hard on yours so it seems fair. =)

I was one of those weird kids that actually enjoyed social studies...And it's good that you were able to just take a break and be and whatnot. I imagine it'd be difficult to write or find motivation for it felt chaotic.

I've been sick the past couple days and staring at the screen now kind of makes me queasy, so I shall retreat to my blankets and talk to you later!

Lol! It's fine if you get me a card from the store - I won't be upset. But I do love your little doodles <3 Do whatever it is that you have time for :)

I like Social Studies too. I like everything school though so maybe that doesn't count for me lol. Academics! Ah, the break was much needed. I'll have to re-read like everything to remember what exactly happened in November, but then I can start adding more detail and balancing out some sections that were just rushed through to avoid the writer's block delivery truck. XDD

Also, I had a glass of white wine and a bottle of Corona that day before I saw Les Mis. Because there are pictures of Kane drinking white wine and Corona. I was channeling his energies!!!

TT! Sickness is bad! *shakes Tarundoru bat at sickness* You leave Azali alone you hear! I hope you get better soon! *hugs*

What, no, it is not fine if I get you one from the store. Lol. I said so.

Everything school?? You are a strange one...I liked a lot of things about school but not everything. >> Writer's block delivery truck? Haa haa that is a good one.

Pffft white wine and a Corona huh? Did it work though? Channeling Kane's energy?

Thanks. I've been facing a fever of 104 in Mortal Combat. I think I've finally given it the kick it needed to drop, so the rest is a matter of taking better care of myself. I'm kind of bad at that when I'm sick. =_=

And before I forget, I got your card! Actually I got it yesterday but I spent most of it in and out of consciousness. I squeed at the penguin. I like penguins...specially if they bear candy canes. Haa haa. The signatures were so clever, I loved em. Especially Platinum's. And Shiraishi's. And the Oshitari cousins. Baaaah I loved all of em. When I saw Sanada's I was like 'Meep, I'm sorry, I'll get better faster!!' =P Your handwriting is way nicer than mine. Lol. Overall it was really sweet and made my day. Thank you so much!! And I seriously loved the Kirby with the tennis racket on the back. Haa haa he would look much happier if the racket were a cake...or an angst muffin.

Lol - I am a strange one indeed. But I enjoy doing things I'm good at.... which happened to be school. There wasn't much to do at home and I didn't really have many friends. Writer's block delivery truck needs to come with some fun gifts once in a while. Like ice cream - yum!

XDDD It tasted good :) And the atmosphere was nice and comfortable. I just wrote some of my Hetalia fic while I was chilling out. And since I was channeling Kane's energy, I had super focus power!

104?! Ewwww...... But I'm glad you shut it down. I hear "FINISH HIM" in my head when I think of Mortal Kombat lol. And Sub Zero - I love him so much. Good luck on getting better!

^______^ I'm glad you like it. I love penguins too <3 That penguin was intense to draw - so much detail! I'd give you a real candy cane, but it wouldn't fit in the envelope and would have cost more in postage. As I read the list, I was like "Isn't that all of the signatures?" I didn't remember. Aw thanks! I have neat writing unless I'm story writing... then it looks like epic garbage. *hugs*

I like Kirby's. I can make one w/ an angst muffin when I remember. What do your angst muffins look like? XD

Ha! My card will be prefabricated and purchased! Not even this year, but is a leftover from last year! ...but it will be full of love, does that count?

*hugs you*

Whell okay! I'm not going to hold it against you that you're getting me a bought card. Isn't that more of the normal thing to do anyways? But I always handmake mine (or handmake the original and throw them on the copy machine and print them 'cause I used to draw a huge Christmas-esque scene on the inside and needed like fifty to seventy copies each year).

But it has to be ABSOLUTEly full of love! Otherwise I take everything back XD

*hugs*

There will be SO much love in it that I will likely have a difficult time stuffing it all into the envelope :-)

*hugs you lots!!*

(And I adore handmade cards, so I am thrilled to be getting one from you!)

Very cool cards. You're so ambitious that way. :P

You know, critical thinking was always hard for children. At least this child. Who can concentrate on Social Studies when there are forts to be built, snowballs to be thrown, faces to be washed. Not that there's any snow here yet.

I'm glad you got to Les Mis! I miss the theatre....<3

Yeah, I understand that critical thinking is a hard concept to grasp for most, but things like math and science have a right or wrong answer almost all of the time (and a clearcut one too) and English is... well, it just is (I can't figure out how to explain it). But Social Studies is just fairly new information and complicated information for them. We were learning about the three branches of government and checks and balances and whatever. Their textbook was too wordy for explaining certain things though so that may have been why they were like "Do not get."

Thanks - Les Mis was the last musical of my list of favorite musicals that I had to see :)

I never found critical thinking difficult, it was more that we didn't want to do it. Short attention spans and all that. Especially with bad textbooks. But I'm sure you were very helpful and offered excellent guidance for their young minds. :)

An entire list? Coolio.
