It's that time of year again when the dA community gets together to give the gift of happiness to someone who could use it over the holidays, those who have to spend the season away from loved ones because of illness and injury, probably feeling lost or forgotten.
Yet they aren't forgotten and we want them to know that, even though we've never met, we care.
That is why, this year, I've put a gift tag on the fronts of both of the cards I created which read "To: Someone special. From: a Friend."
(hard to read with bad camera focus, but you get the idea.)
Inside I've written a buncy of funny, witty jokes and puns that I hope will bring a smile to someone's face this holiday. Ones such as:
"What do you get when you cross a snowman and a vampire? Frostbite!"
"Never try to catch snowflakes on your tongue until you're sure all of the birds have flown south for the winter."
Silly things like that.
(realises too late it would have been better to scan them. oh well!)
Being my second year taking part, I'm more then happy to use my talent to help bring happiness to others, even if just a little. Having also been a rough year for me and my family being in and out of hospital (which is why I've barely added anything to my gallery over the year and will probably continue a little while yet until my own health gets sorted out) I can relate a bit; when it feels like your whole world is closing in around you, turning upside-down, it's very touching when a total stranger suddenly takes time out of their own day to put a smile on your face. It really hits you right in the feels!
So I hope I can do that for someone this season when it matters and give a little back.
