Merry Christmas


Wishing you all Happy Holidays! :)

These are a bunch of ATCs I did for an Animal Christmas/Yule swap. I find them adorable. :)

Random stuff:
  • I had a package waiting for me at customs and they wanted to charge me 25€ (31$) of custom fees because the sender put down a value of 100$ for it. I refused to pay it and tried to convince the customs the value was a mistake. I can proudly say I won the battle. :) I only got charged 4€ in the end because they had to process it.
  • Lesson here is people, do not put value on your "personal" parcels going internationally because you only cause custom fees for the receiver. Do not think you get the value back if the parcel goes missing in transit unless you've paid for insurance as well. And even then you have to prove which objects were in the parcel and that they truly were worth the amount you wrote.
  • You know the saying that your pets are a reflection of the owner? Well, I need to figure out what the hell that means for me when I have one pet with allergies causing her paw inflammations, one pet with an eye problem and another one with a broken tooth.
  • Luckily we managed to fix the allergy one (for now) by throwing away a full 15 kg bag of kibble and replacing it with a more expensive one that is less allergenic.
  • The one with the eye problem I'm still waiting to see how it will go because the antibiotic did help but didn't fix the problem.
  • The tooth one is now toothless. One of his canine teeth broke off and we're scheduled for operation after New Year's to get the root out so it doesn't cause problems.
  • So there you go. Very entertaining holidays for me. :)

Frogs & Dragonflies & Pregnant Belly

This Round Robin started with a frog from AlornRJ, Linda4atc added the dragonfly and I finished with the background.

To remind you, Round Robins are a set of 3 ATCs (artist trading cards) that 3 different artists work on and then each gets to keep one finished card.

Can you believe New Year's is only  2 weeks away? Well, Christmas is next week. I feel like time just flies. And I only have 6 weeks left until our boy is born. :)

I wanted to make some pregnancy photos by myself because those professional ones are really expensive and I have that family syndrome of trying to do everything myself since I did go to photography school. :)

Well, let's just say it's not so easy to do. Timer on the camera is great but the problem is when there's nothing to focus on so you have to improvise with boxes and then try and get in the frame of the photo. Needless to say I gave up this project 10 photos in. :)

But I did manage to get a few photos that look kind of decent. Here is one. Yes, the belly is huge and no, they're not twins. :)

Round Robin with a 7 year old

This Round Robin started with a 7 year old's drawing of a flower. Isn't it cute? :) Kentuckydakota added the squirrel and I finished with the background.

Portrait

Just an ATC of a girl portrait made for a trade request.

Randomness:
  • It's raining again and rivers are rising. We had so many floods this year it's devastating.
  • I'm itching all over in the evening. Looks like magnesium deficiency as it eases up when I drink mineral water with Mg but the doctor had my blood checked out just in case it's something with liver. The results will be known next week.
  • I love getting mail. :) I'm in several swaps, trades and round robins and I'm excited to open the mail every day to see what I get.
  • I haven't read a book in months.
  • Funny how pregnancy makes you research everything healthy. :) We're trying out soap nuts at the moment and they seem to be pretty good.
  • What are you up to in this pre-Holiday time?
