Birthday greetings to dontgetanyolder!

(Another wonderfully ignorable health update: The joints of my fingers are still inflamed, and it seems that my wrists are following suit. But I'll be damned if I don't make this post happen!)

Happy birthday, Tiffany! I hope you're having a wonderful day and that the year to come will be one of happiness and joy! *gives you a big-ass birthday hug*

You've brought so much joy to my life I don't think I'll ever be able to thank you enough. I'm so very happy that our paths have crossed. Your art and artistic skills never cease to amaze me. You're a strong, beautiful and exceptionally talented real life heroine with a heart of gold. It is such a huge blessing to have you in my life, and I am honored to be able to call you a friend. I love you. ♥

I sent you a little something via snail mail last week. The package will probably arrive a bit late, so in the meantime here's a wee manippy manip for you. It's nothing fancy, but at least there are Spike and Buffy in it. Being all cuddly and stuff. And of course, it was made with love with the loveliest person in mind. I hope you like it, sweetie!

Ngl, the head angles on this one were from the pits of hell. And thank heavens I was, for once, early with the gift making, because I couldn't manip squat with these damned flipper hands of mine. :/

Aww, that manip is so cute, you did a great job with it. I'm sorry about your hands, I know how much that sucks, but you wouldn't be able to tell with this gorgeous piece of work. *many hugs*

Omg, I'm so happy to hear you think so! YAYYYYYY! \o/
I don't know why, but something about the manip just kept screaming "WRONG! IT'S ALL WRONG!" to me. In fact, it still kinda does that. But I'm also aware that I'm well past the point of being able to see the wood for the trees. So it's just wonderful to hear this! Thank you so, so much! I really, truly value opinion. ♥

Thanks so much for your kind words! *hugs back* And I concur, it sucks so bad. I've had quite a few things go wrong with my body, but besides occasional shaking I've always been able to rely on my hands to work. And now this? Do not want! D:

*blushes* Wow, thank you so much! I'm absolutely delighted to hear you find the manip to be worthy of such high praise! Yay! :D *beams*

I'm totally loving the manip! *loves the manip*
Okay...*loves you too*
That's it.

You're so awesome, you know that right? ♥
Thank you so, so much - I'm absolutely delighted to hear you like it!

Aw, thanks so much for your kind words, sweetie! ♥

You are most welcome! *keeps the big-ass birthday hug going* I'm just glad I was able to make the post. I'd have been really pissed off if all this inflammation bullshit had kept me from congratulating you on your birthday, but since it didn't, I seriously couldn't care less about my stupid hands. They'll settle down eventually anyway.

I - I have tears running down my face. I can't even put it into words how happy it makes me to hear that you feel that way. And what you said about me - that is such a beautiful and touching and wonderful thing to say. Thank you so much, my dear friend! I love you too! *hugs you soooo tight, again and again*

I'm so glad you like the manip! So, so glad! It had been ridiculously long since I'd last manipped and I was so rusty and I just couldn't tell if I'd managed to make the manip work or if I'd only made it suck. I just couldn't tell and I was so nervous. And then you told me you liked it and I was okay again. No, scratch that, I was more than okay. I was over the moon! Ooh, and it's absolutely wonderful to hear you like the coloring! I find it really hard coming up with decent colorings for manips, so yay, this makes me super-duper happy! :D

The package arrived already?! Omg, that is excellent news! I thought it would take much longer for it to get there. Now I'm just, like, a bit late instead of a lot. Go me! xD I'm so glad you liked the card and the pressies and even found them to be squee-worthy. And capslock-worthy. And hanging on the wall -worthy. I mean, that's just so awesome! Yay! \o/

*gets all teary-eyed again* Aw, I'm just so very happy to hear this! And thankyouthankyouthankyou so, so much for your amazing, beautiful words! I still can't help but to feel undeserving of such high praise, but...but it does make me stand taller, feel a bit less broken to know that you can see such qualities in me. :')

Aw, thanks so much! *huggles* I'm actually going to go to the central hospital right after Easter and stay there for 2-3 weeks for a period of intense treatments and medication adjusting. I'm sure they'll get the inflammation under control there.

Oh sweetie! *is moved to tears* Words fail me! You are so good to me, so amazingly kind and compassionate, and speak about me so very beautifully, and I feel like I'm totally lacking the ability to express the gratefulness and joy and wonder your words incite within me. This is going to sound awfully inadequate after all the wonderful things you said, but...Thank you! Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you!!! *hugsandloves*

You'd like to use the manip as a header? Wow, that's...wow! *is mind-boggled* Of course I don't mind - I'd be honored! The manip is yours to use (or not to use) in any way you want.

It fills me with delight to hear that you think so highly of my stuff. Thanks you so much - I really value your opinion! ♥

I'm so glad you liked the prezzies! And the fact that the package was almost on time still makes me feel like fistpumping like crazy! *fistpumps like crazy*

This lovely comment of yours just keeps bringing happy tears to my eyes again and again! *hugs you tight and refuses to let go*

You did a fabulous job, sweetie. The angle of the heads turned out really well - it looks natural. Excellent blending too. It looks seamless.

I'm absolutely delighted to hear you find the manip to be worthy of such high praise! Yayness! *does happydance*

I don't know why, but making this manip almost did my head in. Something about it just kept bugging me and I kept trying this and trying that but the feeling of wrongness refused to go away. It was so frustrating and weird and I gave up on it like a million times. So it's absolutely wonderful to hear you think it turned out alright! :D

Thank you so, so much! I really, truly value opinion. ♥
