I originally wasn't going to post about my gifts but instead keep it simple. I find myself wanting to share after a few unexpected gifts that excite my "its shiny" senses. I also think it is a great way to say thank you to those who got me gifts.
My step brother Barry
Jean and Roland
My Mother, Father, and Step Mother
Now on to the presents. I'm extremely thankful my dad allowed me to get a new computer on Black Friday. My step brother and the beginning of the year gave me his old laptop. It got me through the year but it was wheezing all along the way. I couldn't do art like I wished as well as the fans where dead, the speakers went, it over heated, and finally just before thanksgiving my powercable started fighting me. I said enough. I went with a pc to get a little more bang for my buck.
Do to a bit of a miscommunication between me and my mother I ended up with a Kindle. I had wanted one up until my computer died and I called it off so not one of my parents would have to pay for it all. Well my mom being the considerate mother, darn, went and got one much to my surprise. A few of the plushies I've agreed to make/sell will help with the difference.
I also got some clothes. I happened to also pick up the blue jacket and blanket in this picture.
I'm also thinking my step mother talked to J & R about the make up because this is part of what they got me:
The top row was from others my step brother and step mother.
Finally I got a new art book to add to the ever growing number I haven't read. I'm going to try and read as much as I can today. So far that equals part of the intro.
