Happy Belated Birthday easy_to_corrupt! 
7th-Jan-2009 09:28 pm
Omg, I think I'm seeing a pattern here! Belated this, belated that - am I actually ever in time these days? *grimaces* Oh well, better late than never, as they say. And, I reckon, it's never too late (or too early for that matter) to celebrate the awesomeness that is easy_to_corrupt. We should throw her a party everyday as far as I'm concerned. ;)

So, happy belated birthday, sweetie! I hope you had a wonderful day full of things good and glowing - or sinister and dark, however you like it. ;)

You've been a wonderful friend to me. I'm constantly in awe of your generosity and kindness, and you have the greatest sense of humor, too, which is like the most brilliant icing on the cake ever. It's so much fun talking to you – our chats always cheer me up – and I've come to value your comments and answers greatly. And not only are you an amazing person, but a truly talented artist as well. The way you're rocking Photoshop these days blows my mind! It's like every time I visit your journal I find myself collecting my jaw from the floor.

All in all, you're totally made of awesome, and I'm indeed honored to be able to call you a friend! *hugs you tight*

Oh, and I have a wee pressie for you. I haven't really been manipping in what seems like ages, and man, it was just so weird to be doing it again! Weird and hard and quite a lot of fun, actually. Although I have to confess that I've been squinting at this manip for quite some time now and I still can't tell if I got it right. *scratches head* But be that as it may, it was made with love and with a lovely person in mind, and like my new favorite saying (alongside the Better late than never one) goes, it's the thought that counts, right? *g*

Oh. *blushes* What a lovely, lovely comment! Thank you so much, you wonderful awesome you! I'm so very glad I was able to come up with a pressie that is to your liking. Yay! And yay to the fact that you had a great birthday! Yay, yay, yayness all around! :D

As for my photoshop skills, you're way too kind. *blushes again* I - I'm just trying to learn to use the damn program, and I honestly think that your skills totally surpass mine. But I still can't help but feeling all warm and fuzzy inside because of that great compliment. Thank you soooo much, hon! *beams*

I'm so glad you felt good enough to post today
I was really happy about that, too. I'd been feeling kinda drained ever since I got home and was starting to grow a bit impatient with myself, but when I woke up yesterday morning I immediately knew that I'd woken up to one of the better days. I was like "Yessss! Finally!", and got up smiling like a goon. :)

It was quite late in the evening when I finally hit the Post an entry -button, and I think I was out like a light pretty much as soon as I'd got it done, but boy did I feel accomplished! Lol. I was like: "There! I made it! Rock me!" ;D

I kinda love you
Well, there's another feeling that is mutual, then. :)

*huggles & smooches*

How totally gorgeous is that. Everything, but especially the coloring of the piece. Perfect. Great job as usual, luv!

Oh, I'm so happy to hear you like the colors! They gave me such a hard time once again. At one point I had like twenty differently colored versions of this manip open in my graphics program, and I remember staring at them, exasperated, and thinking: "I ain't never gonna make this work!" But I'm stubborn if not too skilled, and I kept on trying until I finally came up with this coloring and decided to stick to it. It's indeed wonderful to hear that you think it works! Yay! :D

Many thanks for your kind words - I truly appreciate them! *huggles*

That's really beautiful!!! I love it.
8th-Jan-2009 08:15 pm (UTC)
Oh, I'm so very happy to hear you think so! Yay! *beams*
My heartiest thanks for your kind words - they mean a great deal to me.

Really? Yay, yay, yayness! I'm absolutely delighted to hear you think so! *beams*
My heartiest thanks for your kind words - they mean a great, great deal to me.

Hugs and misses... erm, kisses!
Ooh, it rhymes - how incredibly cool is that! :)
*hugs and kisses and misses you too*

Such a sweet pic! And aren´t you a good friend. Gives me a happy smile to see you care for your friend =)
9th-Jan-2009 06:13 pm (UTC)
Oh wow. *blushes* That is such a lovely thing to say - thank you so much!
I'm delighted to hear you like the manip, and if I managed to make you smile then so much the better. :)

Wow, she's gorgeous, honey!

I'm constantly in awe of your talent, and it's good to see you're still maniping, even if not constantly.

I hope 2009 got off to a great start for you, you deserve all the best in life!

*hugs tight*

Oh wow, sweetie. *blushes* That is such an utterly lovely thing to say - thank you so much! I truly appreciate your kind words, and I'm absolutely delighted to hear you think so. Yaaaaay! :D *beams while doing a mental happy dance*

and it's good to see you're still maniping, even if not constantly.
It really felt good, too, to be creating something for a change. It's been such a long time since my last manip, and I really miss it. I wish I could do it more often, but at least for the time being it's really hard for me to sit in my computer chair. It just gets me all achy plus - ok, this is going to sound silly, but my biggest problem is that I keep on drifting away every once in a while - sometimes I just fall asleep all of a sudden and sometimes I kind of like temporarily loose my ability to see or hear or react - and I'm scared that I might fall off the chair. Because I really can't afford a fall of any kind at the moment. And - oh God! *sniggers* Sorry, it just sounds so absurd, all this pondering about my fear of falling off a chair. It's like, I can't believe I just said that! Lol. Um. Hee! *bg* ;D

you deserve all the best in life!
And so do you! I mightn't know much but I know that. *hugs you so very tight*

*hugs you so very tight back*

Thought I'd commented on this, but no, doesn't seem that way. I hope you had a good Christmas and that the new year is treating you better.

The manip looks great! You really are one of my faves around ♥

Aww, you're so totally made of awesome. *huggles*
My heartiest thanks for your kind words and loveliest compliments! I really REALLY appreciate them. And I'm indeed absolutely delighted to hear you like the manip. Yay squared! *beams*

I hope you had a good Christmas and that the new year is treating you better.
Thank you, I actually had quite a lovely Christmas. A bit more tired one it was, a bit slower, a bit less wild than before, but still altogether wonderful. I might've not danced through the night with the elves this time round, but I did get to sit by the fire and watch as they frolicked, which was almost as much fun. ;) Plus there was a lot of snow and it was really cold and the stars were shining bright and it was just ethereally beautiful. *happy sigh* Oh yes, it was a Merry Christmas indeed.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, too, and that the New Year will bring you happiness and joy!

Oh, that sounds like a very lovely Christmas. We're dullards, so we just sit inside, but next year we'll be celebrating at the cabin, so I suspect that will be a much more magical experience. My Christmas joy has been fading a bit these past few years, so I'm hoping it'll pick up again.

Oh, that sounds like a very lovely Christmas.
Aw, thanks. :) I've always loved winter, and to me, Christmas sort of crystallizes everything that's beautiful and magical about it. If I couldn't have a white Christmas I'd be seriously upset, lol. It's not the same as it was when I was a kid, obviously, when Christmas time was so full of wonders it was almost overwhelming, but after catching the first scent of a Christmas tree I can still see even the most mundane things as if they were covered in fairy dust. I reckon it has a lot to do with traditions and sticking to them. I mean, we've always spent Christmas in the countryside, and it'd be majorly weird to try and get all christmassy somewhere else. My family used to have a small horse farm before my accident, where we had a few hectares of field and about the same amounts of woodland and pasture. We had to sell it then, because I couldn't train horses anymore and it became impossible to afford maintaining such a place since the horses had been the main income. Anyway, even though we don't live there anymore, we still go and spend Christmas there. Not there at the farm but at the cabin in the same village. And we still have our old school Christmases there with the jingle bells and the sleigh rides (we have friends there who have horses) and my grandfather roasts the Christmas ham himself and I do the mince pies and ginger bread and my mom does the rice porridge and my father goes looking for a Christmas tree and so on. It has got a bit harder now that I'm in such a bad shape and my grandparents are getting old but so far we've always managed to pull it off and it's been fantabulous. I absolutely love it there! :D

That being said, I don't think that spending Christmas sitting inside automatically makes anyone a dullard, but if your heart is longing to be somewhere else then I can totally understand why it might feel like a dull way of spending Christmas. I really hope that your next Christmas there at the cabin will signify the return of the full-on Christmas joy for you. :)

Oh, ok, now it sound like a very very lovely Christmas, what with sleighrides and everything. Fairytale like, I'd say.

We actually haven't had snow here for Christmas the past three years in a row, and I think that's had a lot to do with my declining Christmas Spirit(as well as I never watch TV anymore, so I miss out on the Christmassy commercials). There's guaranteed to be tons of snow at the cabin though, so I'm thinking that the change of location will only be a good thing. I do have traditions of my own, such as childhood faves I watch every year as Christmas approaches. Really does help to set the mood :)
16th-Jan-2009 07:27 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I guess it really does sound a bit fairytale like, now that I think of it. Actually, it sounds almost corny in all its tradition-hugging glory when written down the way I did in my last comment, but it doesn't feel corny or cliched or even particularly fairytale like. It just feels like Christmas. Ordinary Christmas, if there even is such a thing. Not that I'd ever take it for granted, though. I know what a lucky bastard I am for having spent all my Christmases in a real life Winter Wonderland. But even the Christmases weren't all fairy dusted even when we still had the farm. Never mind that it was Christmas Day you'd still have to get up at 5.30 and start shoveling horse shit... *g*

We actually haven't had snow here for Christmas the past three years in a row
Ugh, that sounds bad. Snow is such a crucial ingredient of the Christmas Spirit Pudding that I can so totally see how the lack of it could make the atmosphere slump. It was actually raining (water and possibly cats and dogs, too) around here where I live on the 23rd a couple a years ago. There was no snow whatsoever but green grass and mud everywhere. I was kinda freaking out, but then my parents called and told me that there'd be plenty of snow there at the cabin. It was so weird to go southwards to find snow, but then again I'd gladly travel to the South Pole in order to have myself a white Christmas if that's what it took. ;)
