    I decided to start the last contest on January 1, 2011. I figure if I can't clean out by the end of the old year, I can start the new year off with a little giving. The contest will end January 8, 2011 at 10pm. This contest will have two fun gifties, I hope you like them.

    Okay so I've finally decided on a theme(s) for the contest. I want to go with Beauty and Happiness. You can use them together or choose one, I leave that totally up to you. Same rules, any visual, Enchanted Doll Themed, entry is greatly welcome and appreciated. If you have won a contest already, I would love to see an entry, but I wont consider it for the gifties.

    I have two gifties





    Sorry there are only two pictures I'm still trying to recover most of what I lost when my hard drive failed. I feel fortunate to have gotten these for now. If I track down more in the next few days I'll add them.

    Thank you for playing and viewing these contests. This forum means a lot to me and I thrilled to be able to give back a little.

    Thanks,
    Paige

    Never stop dreaming, if you have a dream you have reason to live for. Don't let them die pursue them achieve them and find another to pursue.

    Deadline's now been copied into Paige's first post here, it was tucked away at the end of the last contest thread... the 8th of Jan.

    I'm working on my entry

    I'm very sorry to hear of your hard-drive crash, Paige. Equipment failures and document loss like that are always calamitous – and it sounds like yours had especially unfortunate timing.

    ...But for me, the way you've taken that setback in stride is inspiring in its own right; this final "two-in-one" contest is a great way to kick off the new year (even if that wasn't the original plan!); and as always, both your contest themes and "gifties" here are delightful.

    So I just wanted to say thanks for all that. Here's wishing you the best in 2011!

    Can I join in?!

    Dear Paige, I'd like to submit an entry! But... It's actually a gift for Helene, so I hope neither of you mind if I use it for the contest?! I drew it today, with your themes in mind. Basically, Amaranthe is beauty (as are all EDs) and happiness is what I feel when drawing them... they seem to be all I draw at the moment. Also, the butterfly symbolises the idea that we don't need to hold something captive in our hands in order to appreciate it's beauty. :o


    I hope you like it I'd like to do a full coloured version someday -- but it's not going to be before the 8th of Jan, hehe.

    Oh, thank you all so much for your kind words. And an extra thank you to Shane and Aneemal for helping with the deadline. I'm sorry I forgot to put the deadline in this thread.

    Losing the hard drive was hard but it does put things in perspective. I've found peace with the loss by reminding myself that, in the end, even digital things, are just things. And sometimes you have to wipe the slate clean to draw something new.

    Aneemal, how lucky for Helene to be getting this beautiful drawing. Your talent is very humbling to me. Your skill and vision are always very striking to me. Thank you so much for kicking off the contest.
