Hello Dear Members, Watchers, and Visitors,

    
   
:sun: Happy Reminders & BIG Thank You's :sun:

:note: LOTS OF IMPORTANT INFO. to TAKE NOTE OF:

"The Noms for December":
:santa: The Noms: December, The Month of Wishes!The Noms
Get your fill!
:damphyr: The Special in December
December is the month of wishing! 31 Days of Wishing that is! We are also still giving thanks and featuring those great people nearest and dearest to us!
:damphyr: Seniority
:iconlapaa: lapaa
lapaa is just the most amazing girl you could ever meet. Lapaa is very smart, kind, and has a way with words. She's also got her heart in the right place. She's currently taking all commissions she gets and pouring them into two projects. One is a tablet teaching class at her school where she is informing her fellow artists about using tablets and digital art. Informing that even though people use a computer to draw, it's still art. The other is an art book which she is making and donating all the proceeds to Randall Children's Hospital Foundation of Legacy Emanuel Medica

And... PRESENTING Our Group's SPECIAL 31-Day LONG Event!!

:iconlachoirplz:

:damphyr: How it works...
Every single day, iLantiis will get online in the morning, update the wishlists, update the database, and pull from the ENTIRE DATABASE three names. She will submit those names to her team who will verify, starting with the first name drawn, that the accounts are still active and within the rules of our group. ONLY ONE wish will be granted (or none if all the users are in violation of our policies which shouldn't happen since we just did a massive clean-up in November). The two members whose wish was not granted simply get added back into the database for future drawings as though their names were never pulled.
:damphy
:iconlovesqueeplz:

To date, we've had NINE days worth of wishes!
Check the groups "Recent Journals" to find them,
and see if any still need help with granting these wishes.

And keep your eyes :eyes: OPEN for the next ones, -
there will be one EACH day this month!

After all, YOU can help!

:iconspreadmoreloveplz: An Extra Thank You! :iconspreadmoreloveplz:



This week, we are giving an EXTRA Thank You to our Members who suggested their friends to "Wonderful Wed." with a work of their own that they suggested!


Overdose on Love by Meranda92The Universe is a Jellyfish - new version by Riemea

Commision: Deidara Necklace by psto1464Taylor Swift by KarenNicole97 Prolouge
A learned hand sent a dutiful quill scratching swiftly on a paper's rugged surface.  In haste and urgency, the writer looked not at the candle, which threatened to self-exhaust in the frigid air.  Nor did this person risk a wandering glance around the quarters, which held no luxury, not even a cot.  The pen was not the only sound in the dismal room, for it was joined by the ever-present sound of rats and--tonight--the harsh attack of rain.  The many drops that managed to enter the room splished and splashed into puddles on the floor, surely ruining any chance of sleep for the night.
Though new goose bumps from the cold rose on the writer's arm, this person did not hesitate or even quiver in the cold.  This letter was far more important than any type of present discomfort.  So, dutifully, the quill scratched on.
After a few moments, a single rat made its way into the room, using its nose as a guide.  Left.

It was made known through "Wonderful Wednesday" about these Birthdays!

She's just super, so please wish her your best!


A WishI am standing in the middle of a crowded street. My eyes are searching frantically. They roam over every corner, over every face that sweeps past me. My breath is quickening and is shallow. There is a pain in my chest, a pain that cannot be described easily. I wish this crippling feeling in my chest would fade away.
I feel suffocated by the mass of bodies enclosing me. I struggle to free myself. Every person who passes by me does not recognize me, does not see me. I am invisible to them, just like all the others they pass. They push and shove the other non-existing people out of their way. They are alone, just as I am alone. I wish that I was no longer so isolated.
I call out at the top of my lungs. I cannot hear myself above the din of roaring cars and the incessant babble of the crowd. My words are meaningless. I shout until my throat is dry and scorching. Still, I keep crying out, determined that my voice will be heard. I wish that a blanket of silence would settle over the whole ci

I am glad to see one particular photograph here. I suggested it as DD, but never got a response. (As for granting DD wishes, I only can suggest a deviation when I think it deserves a DD or I would spam the DD team with notes ...)

Beautiful and heartfelt journal, Tea! :heart:

Thank you, my sweet friend! :heart:

You're right, it doesn't show on mine either, cause I kept double-checking it several times, to be sure. It's not on her page anymore either...

But I had it written down for this date, from last year, on my actual real life calendar... I had just "met" her around her birthday, and as with my closest dA friends... ;) ... I keep their birthdays on my actual and real life calendar.

So I hope I still have it correctly, afterall! :faint:

I think I may be able to sub in for you then, tea. Maybe not because some intense exam study will place then.

I can always try!:dummy::tighthug:

Aww, really? :cuddle:
Very cool, if you can...
but if not, it is totally understandable, as you should focus on the exams, for certain! :aww:

So I should be able to NEXT Sunday... but after that for two Sundays in a row, I won't be here.

IF you think you could do it, tell `JamminJo and `The-Lantiis

mostly because Jo is usually a back up, but she's been extra busy lately, and I totally understand if she isn't able to do these, as my back up.

But just in case, I'd tell them, but only if you could.

You are so sweet to offer, but don't worry if it doesn't work out. :heart:
