Holiday Cards Update

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 20, 2011, 1:00 PM
I finished all the holiday cards and they've all been sent out. I kinda sent them out in batches as I completed them and the last batch was sent out last Saturday. Thanks to everyone who let me know you've received them, and thanks to :iconanna-mcnarin: for sending me a card back. I LOVE IT! ^____^

I think this may be my last year doing this, at least on DA. Not only was it a bit of a time crunch for me, but a few people were rather rude. One person tried to sneak getting two cards from me by asking for cards under two different screen names (as if I wouldn't notice), and another basically demanded to get a greeting done their way, and not the way it was offered. I guess they think they're special?

This was supposed to be a fun holiday giveaway, but some people were quite selfish and I'm a bit disappointed.

I enjoyed making cards for those who were both grateful and enthusiastic, and it's a shame that a couple people's actions spoiled this a bit for me. My faith in the "great" people of DA has somehow sunk lower than it already was.

Anyway, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday in whatever it is they celebrate, and a safe and happy New Year.

I would've paid the extra postage to send you a card girly. I guess there's always next year?

I hope you have a great holiday and a happy new year :)

Geez. How low can people really get? D:

Wish I was able to jump on that - too bad I'm in Canada ;_;


Despite those jerks, I hope you have an awesome holiday! X3

I'm not trying to villain-ize these people, I'm just stating how they dampened this year's experience for me a little with their selfishness. I'm not entirely sure if I'll even be on DA this time next year, so I'm not saying I won't ever offer holiday cards again, just not on here.

And I agree, the way people behave on this site are the prime reason why I don't take requests and haven't for years. People demand too much with nothing in return. The moment I offer anything free, people walk all over me and try to take advantage and it's a bit sickening. It sort of does ruin it for those who were grateful and "follow the rules".

You're welcome for the card, I was happy to do it. I hope you have a great holiday and a happy new year :)

Hey, were you the one who requested a greeting from Screwy Squirrel on Tumblr? I never got a response on there.

And thank you for thinking so :)
