Holiday Season: Gifts and Designs


It’s the season to be jolly, and grandma got run over by a reindeer!

Christmas songs echo throughout the house 24/7 as Sunday approaches rapidly. Meanwhile. I finished Christmas shopping on Wednesday, but have yet to wrap anything. Tomorrow’s the last day, so no more procrastinating for me!

Tomorrow, wrapping paper will surround the gifts I bought.

Sure, these festive times have cut me off from writing, but I figure taking a break to spend time with family is perfectly acceptable. Writing will continue after this lovely time!

Kaya demanded this as payment for her services. Consider my debt paid.

Moving on to something else – you may notice that my blog has a new background, a new header, and overall, just looks much more personalized. Collaborative efforts before my friend, Nakaya de Jong, and myself, made this possible.

What I mean with that is that I gave a rough idea of what I wanted, and she made it possible. I highly recommend checking out her work over at deviantArt, and, if you’re interested, check out her Red Bubble, where you can buy t-shirts with her designs!

She is a great friend and is the reason my Facebook page, Twitter background, and blog are so personalized. Without her help, they would be bland and nowhere near the way they are now.

Let me know what you think of the new design!

Enjoy your holidays everyone, and stay alert; I have a special announcement coming on Christmas!

  1. All my Christmas stuff was done ages ago. XD

    Like I said on Facebook, the new layout isn’t displaying well for me. Whatever coding you’ve got isn’t resizing correctly onto my screen, so the background is being cut off. Some of the tiling isn’t lining up, either. The background cut only happens on my computer (but in all three browsers), whereas the tiling issues happened on two different computers. *shrug* Apart from that, everything else is stylistic preference.


    • I’m doing the wrapping last-minute. Meaning… right after I answer your comments. XD

      That’s odd, because it doesn’t actually have much to do with coding – it’s just a background. Is there any way you could send me a screenshot of what the background looks like for you?

      • The background issue could be a WordPress thing, as they have a hard time with odd background sizes. But I don’t know. I’m getting the same issue. It’s white on the ends, and it doesn’t fill my computer screen all the way on any of the browsers. I think there’s a simple solution, but I’m not entirely sure?

        Oh, and your Christmas hat is awesome. :3
