I know it's late but,
Merry Christmas!





Christmas haul list and pictures under here. )


And that's all. I had a good Christmas and I ate way too much food so I'm kind of miserable atm. Lol. But I hope everyone had a good Christmas as well. ILU all. ♥

Hope everyone had a good Christmas or other holiday that you celebrate. XD


The usual Christmas haul list here. )


Tomorrow we get to get ready for wedding stuff Saturday. I'm going buy a bunch of packs of polaroids because I'm going to shoot some while mom's getting ready at the venue. She came up with the idea of putting them on the table by the sign in book. It's a good idea if they come out well. I'll be shooting with the SX-70. Must remember to keep a knife with me. Hmm.

Anyway, I'll be going. I'm worn out and want to play with my phone some more. The only drawback is it's not letting me use ringtones that are larger than 300kb so the sound quality is not fantastic with the tones I converted. I need to go buy a memory card for it too.

We put up our Christmas tree Friday or more like mom put up the Christmas tree while I was out for the night. Heh.



Bigger + 4. )




It's been a long weekend. I'm worn and severely wish it was the end of the week already. I worked Friday, Saturday, this morning, and have to open again tomorrow (but my next two paychecks will be fabulous). Friday I went all the way home after work just to turn right back around to bring my brother to his friend's house. Since I was already around, I went meet John at BAM. We went eat Thai and Ben met us at the restaurant. The food was really good. I want to try their curry the next time I go though. Hobby Lobby for more holiday cards since I ran out (20+ and counting). I sent out the international ones today; they will be very late, my apologies. I need to go buy a couple of books of stamps but I haven't had time to run to the post office. Hopefully the rest will be out no later than Wednesday. They should still have enough time to make it to your mailboxes. XD

Mom and I went shopping yesterday and I came home with 3 dresses and two new pairs of shoes. Everything was on sale so we got 3 dresses (normally $60-70 each) for $40 each. And I got two pairs of patent leather shoes, one short wedge which is almost a flat and a heel. They are so freaking cute. (One and Two) Picture quality sucks. Sorry. If I manage to not look too fat I'll take pictures of my dresses too, but I guarantee nothing at this point.

I have no idea what to get mom for Christmas. :/ She keeps hinting at a massage so I may get her a gift certificate from work for one. I'm also going to tan a few times at work before the wedding so I don't blind anyone with my paleness.

I got cards in the mail! From [livejournal.com profile] hp5freak, [livejournal.com profile] torn_portfolio, and [livejournal.com profile] itsumademo_news. Michelle! The little Kyuhyun picture was brilliant! Thank you guys so much. I promise to send out cards soon. ;-;

Okay I'll end this post now as I have a crazy bird flying around my head. D: ♥

So like every year I like to send out holiday cards regardless of what you celebrate or your religion (or lack there of) may be. Just fill out the poll and you'll get a card from me before the holidays. :D Yes, even you international friends.

I don't have any specific thing to send out this year like I did last year, but I do still have a few prints left over from last year since I made extras (included below the poll). OR if you would like a print of anything I've posted on my livejournal or at my DeviantArt, then you can let me know and I'll get it printed (or if it's square then I'll print it myself) and send it out with your card. Polaroids may be the only exception since I don't have a good HQ scan of any of them unfortunately.

I wish I had time to take requests and do something like that but unfortunately it's too late for that. :/


Anyway, here's the poll. )

If I've forgotten anything I'll come back and add it in. :D
simplify: (Default)
Okay, so I don't have any good scans to offer but for those that wish for a card from me this holiday season you can choose from these images I posted a while back and the few new ones behind the cut. :)

Also since I know everyone doesn't celebrate the same holidays, if you wish to leave a comment specifically asking for a non-Christmas card that would be great. One type of card I have is Christmas oriented (though I didn't realize it at the time) and the other is a generic 'Tis the Season/Have a nice holiday type card. So, if you'd like to specify which you would rather that is completely fine.

UPDATED with new scans (though they are a bit dusty).

Pick your pictures. :D )



The photos will be a 4x4 silver gelatin print on Ilford Multigrade RC paper which the paper itself will be 5x5 (or as straight as I can cut them after they're done after I've butchered them in the darkroom *G*). Your photo can be printed with or without the black border.

(Note, the print quality vs. the scan quality is significantly different and the print quality is tons nicer (and less dusty). I hope you trust my judgement enough.)


* I eliminated a few options due to my insanity plus I didn't have any new scans to share, so ignore those numbers in the poll, please. :D *

Poll. )

All comments are screened so if you would rather leave your information there, that'd be lovely. Just make sure you leave me your name, address, zip, etc as well as the number of the photo you would like included in your card (corresponding numbers are above the photos), I will take all that down and prepare your cards.

International bebes are going to be done first so this time around everyone can at least get their cards in December and not way after the New Year. :P




I'll be pimping this out in case you miss it the first time around. :D

Well, I've done this for the last two years (or at least attempted to) and last year was a damn good success despite the severe lateness of my international bebes getting their cards.

I'd like to do this again this year. If you're new to my holiday card spiel it is generally along the lines of this, but this year I want to do something different. I want to use actual holiday cards and make little 3x3 black/white prints from my toy cameras and send those out. As soon as I get some scans of my negatives, I'll have some thumbnails for everyone who is interested to choose from and I'll be printing those on some Ilford Multigrade RC paper. I would love to do them all on fiber but unfortunately that takes entirely too long and is mighty expensive to keep up with when I need that more for class than anything.

I'm going to see how far I can go with this without taking on too much as I'm wont to do. :P

So, just let me know if you're interested. I'll do a formal poll when I manage to get some scans done. :)

Every year my mom's Cleopatra float volunteers at our local 'assisted living' home to serve a Christmas dinner to the residents. I started going for Honor Society community service, but I've actually grown to really enjoy doing it (I have also managed to NOT see any old people answer their doors naked, thank God).



A few from today. )


I usually stay downstairs the whole time, but I ended up having to run another tray of cake upstairs (6th floor) and decided to just stay up there (which also smelled like pot...) instead of having to get in the elevator *shudders* by myself to go back downstairs.

That's it for today. :) ♥

Cards have been mailed.
Whoo. I apologise if you get them late though, but hopefully it doesn't take too long. My overseas girlies, I have no idea how long international post takes, so I hope you get them before the New Year at least. :O

Preview.


Two from Ren Faire. )


So, Fox really needs to learn how to make good movies. I enjoyed Eragon last night (especially Ed Speleers shirtless scene with lowriding leather pants...guhj;ajf;aj) but the movie was put together awkwardly. The movie itself was good, but just the way they put it together or how it didn't flow so smoothly threw me off. AND that they took a 400+ page book and crammed it into a 1 hour & 39 minute movie. Now, I haven't read the book yet, but that's besides the point.

Random: I've really gotten into the model/fashion and stock icons a lot recently (the clean, textless, colourful or b/w icons). I don't know what's wrong with me. I deleted over 20 icons that I don't really use to just fill it back up with others. Rar.

Uh...I think that's it. :) ♥

Okay, Amy ([livejournal.com profile] amylee1178) has reminded me of the holiday card idea I had last year. It didn't work out as well as I thought it would since only three people -- Robert, John, and Clayton -- filled out the poll.

So I'm going to try it out again this year. I'm using the same poll, so forgive me. I still want to send out these awesome cards by [livejournal.com profile] miints. So you get a choice between a few Harry Potter characters. Even if you don't like / aren't into Harry Potter, these cards are cute as hell.

Also, to add a little spin to the card idea, I'm doing a photo prompt. Choose a word or situation (nothing impossible and nothing dirty, you pervs) - I prefer something simple and fun. I don't want to take this too seriously. I just want to make it fun. The prompt can be as simple as the word "pink" or something and I will come up with something fun that will (hopefully) match your prompt. It's also to help again with prompted situations when it comes to photo. I'm trying to hone my skillz. :P (Anything to do with snow or anything really 'wintery' is not a possibility as it rarely snows where I live.)

This is kind of like my photo meme but I'm not taking this nearly as 'seriously artistic' as I normally would. Knowing how I am though I will anyway. D:

The photo will be a 4x6 print and I will write your eljay name on the back with the prompt and maybe a little something from myself. Or I may just write that on the card.


This is open to anyone who wants to participate as last year no one did. If for some reason it gets to be too much for me to handle (which I doubt it will), then I'll be closing the poll earlier than the deadline.


Deadline is Friday, 8 December. That way I can get everything done a couple weeks before Christmas and have everything sent the week before Christmas.

Poll is here. )

Or if you don't want to post your address in the poll, you can do it in the comments. All comments are being screened, unless of course it doesn't pertain to an address or anything, then I'll unscreen that thread.

I think that's it. ♥

Okay, I've seen this done only a few times since I've been in the fandom on eljay. I decided this year I wanted to do it myself and see how it works out. Heh. (And hopefully it does.)

Since it originated being a Harry Potter fandom thing, I'll be sending out these awesome cards by [livejournal.com profile] miints. So you get a choice between a few characters. Even if you don't like/ aren't into Harry Potter, these cards are cute as hell.

Also, to personalize them a little bit, I'm doing a photo prompt. Choose a word or situation (nothing impossible and nothing dirty, you pervs) - it can be as simple as the word "pink" or something - and I will come up with something fun that will (again hopefully) match your prompt. This is also to test my own abilities at making a situation come alive and to get ready for Photo 261.

It will be a 4x6 print and I will write your eljay name on the back with the prompt and maybe a little something from myself. Or I may just write that on the card.


This is open to everyone, even people not on my flist(s) (this is for this journal and my HP one - [livejournal.com profile] cenas_plots || though a comment would be nice if you aren't on either or I just don't plain know you), but if it gets out of hand (which I doubt it will), then I'll be closing the poll earlier than the deadline.


Deadline is Wednesday, 14 December (Stephie's b-day!). That way I can (hopefully) get everything by then and get them printed and sent on that Friday/Saturday for delivery before Christmas.

Poll is here. )

Or if you don't want to post your address in the poll, you can do it in the comments. All comments are being screened, unless of course it ends up becoming a crazy conversation, then I'll unscreen that thread. :P


Can't wait to see what you guys throw at me. Hehe. ♥
