Birthday Greetings to ssddgr! 
15th-Mar-2012 08:13 pm
Happy, happy birthday, bb! I hope you've had a lovely day filled with everything and everyone you love best! ♥

You're such a beautiful, inspirational person and a wonderful friend, and I'm just so incredibly happy to know you! *hugs & loves*

Here's a little something for you. The first manip I've made since forever. I'm afraid it came out a bit unfortunate-looking, but hopefully the awesomeness that is Spuffy will make up for it a little bit.

That is beyond gorgeous, you haven't lost your touch at all. It made me so happy to see a new post from you, and a lovely manip on top of that. Hope you're doing well=)

Omg, I can't even begin to tell you how happy it makes me to hear you think the manip turned out alright! Woohoo! :D \o/ I'd kinda given up on manipping and graphics-making in general because for the longest time I felt like I'd lost my ability to do it, but maybe there's hope for me yet. :)

Thank you so, so much for the loveliest, most encouraging words! They totally made my day! ♥

I'm doing kinda shittily atm, but what else is new, right? At least I'm out of the hospital for the time being, so yay to that. I'm taking one day at the time and all that jazz, and trying not to grow too bitter in the process, lol, though I'm afraid I'm failing pretty badly in the latter... ;P

I hope life's been treating you good, bb!

Oh, I don't think you ever have to worry about that. I'm still making manips every now and then, sometimes I even impress myself with them, other times they're really horrible. I guess we all have our good and bad days.

I'm sorry that things are still shitty, but being out of the hospital is always good in my book. As for me, it's not so great right now. I actually have a tumor and am going into surgery next Tuesday to get it removed, which has me freaked as I've never had to deal with something like that before. I'm trying not to worry too much, but it's a losing battle.

I'm glad to hear you're still manipping, because there can never be too many talented manippers and your stuff is truly amazing. But yeah, I guess that's one of the downsides of graphic making - or any creative activity, really. In order to produce something worthwhile every once in a while, you have to accept that for every even remotely presentable piece there's going to be a folder-full of of utter crap, lol.

Aw, thanks, bb! And you're absolutely right, being home pwns being stuck in hospital 100-0.

Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry to hear that! D: Tumors are scary business, and so are surgeries. I hope from the bottom of my heart that your operation goes well, and that the recovery will be speedy and as painless as possible. I'll be sending extra good thoughts and energy your way on Tuesday for sure. ♥

Thanks, I think it will go okay, but that won't stop me from being nervous. I just want this to be over with now.

Some good news, I actually won for best manip at the Wicked Awards. I'm still stunned by that because there were several gorgeous manips in that category that were so much better than mine, I definitely never would have expected it.
18th-Mar-2012 07:36 pm (UTC)
I'm sure it will. Go okay, that is. And I think you'd have to be a cyborg not to be anxious in a situation like that. I sure as hell have been a nervous wreck before every single surgery I've ever undergone.

Ooh, that's awesome! Congratulations! I absolutely love the winning artwork too. Spuffy Christmas is obviously where it's at, plus the base pic rocks and the blending is on point! *looooves* In other words, go you and your award winning self! :D
18th-Mar-2012 07:45 pm (UTC)
Thanks, yeah, I also did an Eric/Sookie version using that same base=)
16th-Mar-2012 11:26 am (UTC)
It's... dare I say cute? Not because cute would be bad, but because Spuffy rarely is cute. I really like it anyway :)

Toivottavasti jakselet eteenpäin jotenkin. Tedän ettei se ole helppoa, joten kaikki elonmerkit on tärkeitä :) Kevättä kohti joka tapauksessa. Haleja ja voimia!
17th-Mar-2012 06:13 pm (UTC)
Aw, thanks so much, bb! I think cute is a perfectly appropriate word to use in regard to this manip. I mean, they are kinda cute there, aren't they? And by cute I mean adorable in the most badass way. ;P Idek, I just really loved the base, to be honest. The motorcycle, Spike's bling, Buffy's cross necklace etc., you know?

Kiitos & haleja ja voimia myös sinulle! ♥ Olen ärsyttävän huonossa hapessa tällä hetkellä - nyt kuitenkin onneksi kotona enkä sairaalassa. Väillä meinaa usko loppua, mutta pakko se on vain jaksaa, päivä kerrallaan jne.
16th-Mar-2012 12:24 pm (UTC)
It's stunning, honey! Thank you so very very much!

I wish I were as good a friend as you say, and I'm sorry I haven't written in a while, but it's been crazy :-/

How are you?

Thank you again, and I love you!
17th-Mar-2012 06:18 pm (UTC)
You're most welcome, bb! I'm just so very delighted to hear you like it! *beams*

Don't worry about any of that. Seriously, I totally understand. Besides, reading messages and replaying to them is still incredibly slow and hard for me, so I've come to kinda dread incoming mail as sad and embarrassing as it may sound. :/

I'm doing kinda shittily atm, but what else is new, right? At least I'm out of the hospital for the time being, so yay to that. I'm taking one day at the time and all that jazz, and trying not to grow too bitter in the process, lol, though I'm afraid I'm failing pretty badly in the latter. ;P

I love you too! So, so much! *huggles you silly*

I'm so sorry to hear you're not doing well. I wish there was something I could do, damn it. :(

Yay for being home, at least, right? And for what it's worth, you're not failing at all. You're managing to still be a fighter, still be one of the kindest people I know, when others going through half the shit you've been going through would want to make everyone around them suffer.

I seriously love you, and Andrei sends all his love too!

*squishes gently*
20th-Mar-2012 05:56 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it sucks, but that is life, I suppose. Or at least in my case it is. Nevertheless, my heartiest thanks for your compassionate words! ♥

Oh yes, definitely yay for being home! I bleeding hate it there in the hospital, and it is always a huge relief to be allowed to go home.

I'm blushing so hard right now, oh my goodness! That is such a lovely thing to say - thank you so much! It makes a great difference to me just to know that you're there thinking so kindly of me. :')

I love you too, truly, and please thank Andrei on my behalf and send him my love as well!

*hugshugshugs*

That's gorgeous! You're very talented, hon. You haven't lost any skill at all. *smooches*
17th-Mar-2012 06:19 pm (UTC)
You are SO awesome, you know that, right? *huggles you silly*

It makes me almost embarrassingly happy to hear you think the manip turned out okay! Yay times a million! :D \o/ I'd kinda given up on manipping and graphics-making in general because for the longest time I felt like I'd lost my ability to do it, but maybe there's hope for me yet. :)

Thank you so, so much for the kindest, most encouraging words, bb! They mean the world to me, they really do! ♥

Also, your icon is all sorts of amazing! *loves*
21st-Mar-2012 12:44 am (UTC)
Isn't it a gorgeous icon? It was made by ar_feinieliii
21st-Mar-2012 06:42 pm (UTC)
Yes it truly is. ar_feinieliii is such a talented icon maker. I have a couple of her icons as well, such as the one I'm using with this comment. :)

By the way, I made a little b-day post for you here at my journal, if you feel like checking it out. Hint: There may or may not be a wee manip shaped present waiting for you there. ;)
