Before I set off tomorrow and head home to the Fazerland for Christmas, I need to tidy up my blog. There are a few pocket-y exploits I need to show off to you before the new year begins, and since I am still in bed, nursing my cold in an attempt to be back on my feet for my flight tomorrow, this is the perfect entertainment for Guylty.
First of all I’d like to say thank you for all the Christmas cards and messages that have already reached me here at Casa Guylty. It has been lovely to receive traditional, snail mail greetings, and I am displaying them all on my kitchen window sill. It has been another wonderful year for me here in the fandom. You have continued to shower me with your attention and support, you have sent me gifts and tins and sparkles, and it has been a pleasure to communicate with you on the blog, via e-mail, on Twitter or in actual RL in Leeds. Thank you!
In lieu of a Christmas card to each and everyone of you, I am sending you this post as the “official season’s greetings” ;-), mirroring last year’s post. Last Christmas, I gave you
my heart, but the very next day… oops, no, wrong medium the RAMBO, a “Rich-in-the-box” Christmas ornament. This year, I developed the RAXS, the prototype I made for Glady. And then I went on and made a few more, just for the fun of it… Hope they’ll make you smile and relieve the inevitable pre-Christmas stress. Sit back and enjoy.
Some eagle-eyed readers had already spotted Thorin in the bauble group shot. His silhouette is unmistakable. He’s got a very special Christmas tree topper…
I don’t know about you, but even in my advanced years, I can’t wait to unwrap my presents…
Well, I mean, just imagine, if *that* was what was waiting for you under the Christmas tree…
(Sorry, blurry picture – the heart says “All I want for Xmas is…”)
And lastly, with a name like that, it had to be done. Not sorry.
So, merry Christmas to all – have a lovely festive holiday, some family time, some rest, and some peace.
