Forget apologizing for being behind and saying I'm trying to catch up. Let's just assume from now on that I'll always be behind and trying to catch up, okay? :D

On to other subjects. The holidays are coming up way too fast. If you're looking for a really special gift, I have to say that finding someone willing to custom-make something for that special someone on your list is awesome. Or failing that, at least finding something unique and hand-made. DeviantArt is fantastic for this.

I go nuts trying to come up with gifts for the people I care about. They're all very tough to shop for. One of those people is my utterly wonderful husband. And this is where I turn my journal into an unsolicited ad for another dA member: :iconcosmicfolklore: CosmicFolklore. I saw one of his stunning ouroboros pieces:
Ouroboros in 8 Necklace by CosmicFolklore
and just knew that something like that would be perfect for my husband. I contacted him, and he worked with me to find a combination of materials and style that my husband would enjoy and I could afford. As a result, I have a one-of-a-kind, utterly stunning gift for the most special person in my life. If he were here, I would give him a :hug: but instead, I'll have to settle for telling all you other holiday shoppers about people like him. Go give him or another dA artist your business this holiday season. Instead of supporting a mega-manufacturer that assembly-lines stuff, support an artist.

And on that note, here's today's feature of a bunch of amazing dA artists who sell their work (prints or otherwise) here or on other sites. Today is part 1, a bunch of artists whose usernames begin with A, all pulled from the list of folks I have on watch here. (More to come in later installments!) If there's an artist I missed that you want to support this holiday season, link to them!

:boogie::bow::boogie:Thank you, Thank you.

I took a picture of it before I shipped it to you, but I didn't post it because I was scared that he might see your DA site every now and then. If OK, I will post it as soon as I get caught up with things on my bench this weekend.:juggle:

It was a pleasure to make that for you, and I am very, very pleased that you like it. Let me know what he thinks :)

He's been away on business this week (ironically, in your state!), and since I haven't the fortitude to wait until the actual holiday, he'll get it when he gets home today. :) So please feel free to post the photo! I cannot tell you how pleased I am with it! :sun:

Funny, I know lots of folks that live here and work there occasionally and vice-versa. I wonder what the connection between the two states are. Also, this year my school hired 14 new teachers from your state. And, my ex-wife lives there.
wierd.

Let me know what he thinks :)
Have a great Halloween.

He loves it!! :D :sun:

I think the connection is primarily government work. There are some major government offices down there, and a whole lot of civil servants & contractors here, and so there's a lot of travel between the two, particularly around the Huntsville area.

No need to apologize for not being catch up on dA related stuff... it can be overwhelming.

Glad you managed to find the perfect gift for your husband.

Gift-shopping drives me insane! But it's worth it when you happen across just the right thing. :D

My problem is waiting to give them their gifts I am usually so excited I mail them off way before time & when Christmas/ BD come around they have nothing left to open.

Oh, me too! But most of the people I know are the same way, so we don't stand on formality with dates & such. When we find the right thing, that's when we give the gift!
