It looks like Holly is having more really great and successful Cavey releases. I'm so happy for her! Her Snowman Cavey went up in the Playlounge shop (both in the online shop and in the UK store) just this morning, and Reindeer Cavey was just released about an hour ago in the Hey Cavey Big Cartel shop. I was able to get one of each so I'm happy. To help celebrate, I took a photo of my favorite Cavey ever, Hello Kitty Cavey.
Getting a photo that I was satisfied with was extremely difficult this time around. >__< In fact, this photo is from the third photoshoot attempt in the past week. I feel victorious now that I produced a shot that I'm happy with! *pumps fist in air* I'm extra picky with my Hello Kitty Cavey photos. Like I tell everyone, she (along with Pink Strawberry Cavey) is my pride and joy when it comes to Caveys and plushies in general... so everything always has to be just right.
Now that the Cavey releases for the month are over (that I know of, haha), I can focus on other holiday plans. I'm trying to get my creativity back in gear by making my own Christmas cards this year. I'm running a little late with that plan-- I'm getting all the supplies I need this Friday and I might be able to take the photos the same day, depending on the light. Whatever service I choose to go through for printing, I'm hoping it will be fast so I can get the cards out to all my friends and family before the holiday.
I've been putting off a rather big project for quite a while and I now realize that I really need to put it in motion before the holidays. It's a surprise gift for a friend of mine, and I think it's something that will take quite a bit of time to make.
Other gifts for the holidays have proven to be very difficult to get this year. *sigh* I've had such rotten luck with buying items online; I've almost given up even trying! Two of my orders on Amazon were cancelled because the store's stock wasn't updated, so I ended up purchasing two items that weren't even available. On eBay, I either get outbid in auctions or the price goes up ridiculously high before I can even place a first bid. All this bad luck has taught me to start shopping in October or early November, grrrr! I hate feeling rushed.
I think I'll be able to breathe more once I get at least half the gifts on my present list and my cards made and ordered. It will definitely be a busy few weeks. I don't mind a bit though-- it's still my favorite time of the year. ^____^
