It's that time of year again...

And that means... CHRISTMAS CARDS! *sparkles*

Or at least I hope so. ^^; I can't promise I'll have the time to actually make them all myself as I am a girl of very little imagination and even less time, but it's nice to get something in the mail anyhow, isn't it? ^__^

If you want one, just comment to this entry with your name and address. ^_^ I'm also quite sure I've acquired a few lurkers in my time too, which is fine by me. Want a card? :3

So far to be mailed: mesmerisz, bludhavens, Florence, nemkess, spinshadow, serephita86

And secondly:

(taken ostensibly from mesmerisz but I know I've seen it elsewhere around my forays through the internets)


Step One

Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered... whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a ______ icon that's just for me") to medium ("i wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("all I want for christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV"). The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two
Surf around your friends list (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use -- do it.

You need not spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf -- to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not -- it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

My wishlist is here (or the post right beneath this one, depends when you read this I suppose ;p) if anyone's up for finding out ways to bribe me make me happy. ;p I'd also be quite deliriously happy if you gave me fic/icons! And I needn't ask twice to prod you all for music, yes? :3

You might also tell me what you could want of me for Christmas! I don't have a lot to spend on gifts, but tell me/link me to your own wishlists and we can certainly see! ^__^ I love giving presents, and this whole sending-stuff-in-the-mail thing is still new enough to seem novel to me. ^_~ I'd also be quite happy to do the whole gift-fic/art bit too if you're up for it. *gleams* I really, really need new bunnies.
