Here's what I have so far:
Although the more and more I look at the white stage, the more I like it...
Ah well. The next step is to add some interactive buttons to this thing by tomorrow night.
In any case, the holidays are creeping up at an incredibly fast pace, and I've yet to do any shopping for anyone, really, save for some things from etsy for coworkers. :/ So yeah... have to get on that. Need ideas though.
I signed up to participate in Reddit's Secret Santa gift exchange this year and received this message last weekend:
And I received my present in the mail from my secret santa a few days ago (will probably open it this weekend)! YAAY!
This thing has 17.5k participants from 90 different countries, and I consider myself lucky that I got matched up to be a Secret Santa for someone who actually seems like a pretty cool chick (an artist/printmaker), and that my own Santa (whoever he/she is) didn't forget about me and actually sent me something! (secret santa is as much about the giiiiving as it is the receiving, after all).
I sent my giftee a jar of Winsor & Newton drawing ink, pen holder, pen nibs, and some tubes of block printmaking ink. She should have received her gift by now-- USPS tracking says that it was delivered on the 4th-- but so far no updates indicating from her on redditgifts.com that she received her stuff. Hopefully the status will change soon.
I'll report back on what I/my kitties got when I finally do open my gift!
