It's somehow December already. And while I'm freaking out because the year is almost through, it's also exciting because CHRISTMAS.
This months theme has a bit of Christmassy vibe to it. Or just a Northern Hemisphere winter vibe to it: Snow. Aka something I wish we had a lot of right now!
Here's everything you need to know about the contest:

Winners of the Halloween Murder Mystery Contest!What happened?Winners of the Halloween Murder Mystery Contest! by Aeirmid
We are pleased to announce the winners of the Halloween Murder Mystery Contest that was run through Halloween-HQ! First, let us tell you exactly what happened.
The killer was the Queen of Hearts. Ruthless and cold, she set out to kill Prince Charming for repeatedly spurning her unwanted shows of affection. She used a thin knife and struck when the lights went out during the castle ball. Quickly realizing what she had done and that she had gotten the wrong victim, she fled across Fairyland, through the dark forest, and back to her own castle.
Well, we originally had 3 prizes: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place based on scores from the characters you visited. (You didn't know you were being scored, did you?) But, when we ended up with 825 participants, we figured we needed to up the prizes a bit, too. Moonbeam13 over in Community Relations is a goddess, and she made the prizes even BIGGER!
Things I like or think are really cool I set it to random so that every artwork stands a chance of being seen rather than just the ones I added most recently. Every one of them deserves to be seen more than once on my profile
I can honestly say that this is all Mattsma's fault for inspiring us to do this as she started with the first of them and then I made the second one and then it snowballed... This is the full army of teacups, in order of creation, as of the time of writing - I will try to keep it more or less up to date.
What to tell about myself... I'm cheerful and creative - when I'm in the right mood I create more than I can keep up with so it's always a challenge to finish what I start as I have so many idea's. I don't let stuff like not knowing how to do something stop me from actually doing it - I may not do it "right" in the end but I do get it done!
I'm a mother of 2 boys who are (fortunately) not yet teenagers but are a pair of monkeys who keep me on my toes
About saying thanks to favs etc.
I had to make a choice between spending a load of time thanking people for favouriting my art - which always brings a smile to my face and a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart - or making more art.
I chose to stop thanking people personally for the favourites but I do still give everyone who favourites me for the first time a llama badge as a little thank you for doing so I hope that nobody feels less appreciated for it but well.. someone stole my time machine If you need more inspiration as to why I chose this watch this: player.vimeo.com/video/4237276… It's good advice for anyone who creates art
Do I sell my work?
Sometimes - Not everything I make is for sale but I don't usually mark anything as "for sale" so If you are interested in something I've made feel free to note me. I only accept reasonable offers as making things by hand takes time and materials cost real money, so expect to pay more for a one off item than you would for that mass produced knick-knack you saw in a shop.
