Edit 12/22/13  Sooo...I sent out about 56 cards with goodies in total *dies a little*  I am so so sorry if I was not able to send you something.  I tried my best, but I had a shipping budget and I sorta went over that. Whoops.  Anyway, the last of the US cards should be arriving before Christmas.  Some of the international cards might not make it until after Christmas.  If I was not able to send you something, I will still try and grant something on your wishlist, even if it is just points.  I wasn't really able to do any big drawings this year.  I had to choose between a lot of small gifts or a few big gifts.  I decided on a lot of small gifts. :3  Thank you all for being so wonderful this year, and I hope 2014 will be as great or even better!!!!

Edit 12/06/2013- Hey guys! It has been a great couple of days :) Thank you all for submitting your wishlists!  Here are some statistics: I received about 115 wishlists and about 54 addresses.  I will do my best to make as many of these wishes come true as possible.  Just a word of warning- this year many of my wishes were for custom art.  Please be mindful that creating 70+ images in this timeframe is near impossible.  I will try and create as many pieces as possible, but they are going to have to be smaller and quicker than my usual art.  Still, I think you'll enjoy them! I am on my way to Michaels to pick up some supplies for tackling this long list ;) Happy Holidays everyone!  Feel free to keep submitting wishlists, but be mindful of the fact that I am just one person.

Edit: Hey guys! Just a little update.  If what you are looking for is something to be shipped, I really need your address on file.  As I stated below, I will delete this list after the holidays, and will only use the address for the purpose of this giveaway.  If you are not comfortable giving your address, perhaps think of a wish that doesn't require a shipment :) Minors must ask their parents or guardian before giving away their address. 
Please send addresses in a note titled 'holiday giveaway'. I will probably be able to deliver cards and things to most of the people who decide to submit addresses. 

Yes! It is finally that time of year- I am opening my GIANT Santa Giveaway all through December!
I invite everyone- watchers and non-watchers alike- to submit their wishlists to this journal for the chance to have holiday wishes granted!

:star: What is the goal of this project?
The goal of this project is to provide holiday cheer to deviantARTISTS of all ages, nationalities, genders, ect.  No one is left out.  There is no 'test' to pass (ie watching, favoriting, sharing). I simply wish to provide as many gifts and as much holiday spirit as possible.

:star:What's the catch?
There is none! There is no 'sign-up' or required steps to follow.  Simply submit a wishlist to this journal.  This can be a wishlist that is in a previous journal or a wishlist that you come up with on the spot.

:star: What are acceptable wishlists?
The best wishes are, of course art or dA related.  
Here are some examples:
-Art work (specific or non specific)
-stickers
-bookmarks
-Points
-Subscriptions 
-Prints
-Commissions from favorite artists
Some more obscure wishes might include:
-Christmas/Holiday cards
-Some sort of trinket in the mail 
-A feature (I may have to lump features together in a few journals after the holidays, depending on demand)

Really, just use your imagination. 

:star: What are not acceptable wishes?
-Please do not ask for big, overly expensive things.  I don't have money for gadgets like tablets and iphones.  Believe it or not, I got requests for things of that nature last year. 
-Money.  Aside from this being incredibly rude, it sort of breaks the spirit of this giveaway.  I am comfortable with giving points, but I don't feel right about gifting cold cash. 
-large works of art.  I am okay with doing a limited number of small works, but I really don't have time/can't afford to give away big works.  I may have a separate giveaway for one or two larger works sometime this month

Really just use your common sense!

:star: What if my wish is something that needs to be sent (ie Prints, cards, small art work)?  
I am definitely planning on sending stuff!  If you would like to receive something in the mail, I need a valid address.  If you are comfortable with giving out your address for this purpose, please send me a note titled "Giveaway Address".  All of these addresses will be kept secret, for only my viewing.  I will not use them on future occasions for advertising or any other purpose. 
If you are a minor, you must get your parent or guardian's permission before you giveaway your address.  

:star: Will everybody get something?
If there has to be a catch, I guess this is it.  Last year I got over 300 wishlists.  I think I delivered wishes to about 1/3 of those people.  Sadly I am just one person with limited time and funds.  I do have a larger budget this year (but it is only a fraction of what I would like).  I also have a limited amount of time.  Fortunately this year I have more things like Christmas cards and stickers, so hopefully a lot of people will get at least a little something :)  I am also planning to at least save a couple hundred points to spread around to a vast number of people. 

:star: What can I do to spread the holiday cheer?
Well, of course none of this is mandatory, but spreading this journal might be nice. You could also host your own holiday giveaway! Also, remember that all of these posted wishlists are from deviantARTISTS just like yourselves. Don't be shy! Feel free to deliver and grant wishes on any of the posted lists!

:star: Optional Donations.
I rarely ask for any sort of donations, but if you wish, upon request from a few deviantARTISTS,  I am opening an optional donation pool this year. 100% of these donations will go to granting wishlist wishes.  If you would like to make a donation you can do so through paypal. My paypal address is katylipscomb@gmail.com 
Please put "Donation" somewhere in the description so that I know where to direct the funds. 

:star: My Wishlist
I get this every year. Sometimes people ask for my own wishlist!\
I love: 
-Fanart of any of my characters
-Any sort of art in general
-Christmas Cards
-Any sort of prints, stickers, bookmarks
-Any other surprises!
If you'd like to send me something, feel free to note me for my address.

I do not need:
-Premium Memberships
-Money (other than optional donations
-Points (other than those donated for the purpose of this giveaway)

And that's all! Happy Holidays everyone! I look forward to playing Santa :D

If it's not too much to ask, maybe a wolfy Christmas card would be nice. I will send a note with my adress. I don't want any gifts, as I have been going through a lot, and just some emotional support and a small thing to cheer me up a bit for the holidays would be nice.

Well I'd like most is a painting of my dead wolf Attila.
One of a particular memory of him standing majestically in a snow storm as the moon light breaks through the clouds.
I'd like it to be sort of like a memorial I can hang on my wall. It doesn't need to be big I just want something to remember him by.

Other little things I'd like(But you don't have to do any of these):
1) I'd love a custom bookmark of my OC Pumpky( fav.me/d6w81gw ) reading a book  
2) A keychain of a chubby baby dragon. 

6) I'd love it if you'd make a small painting of anything from my gallery.
 I'd be so happy to see any of my darling creations in your style<3

This is so nice of you to do!
-I love wolves, especially your colorfull drawings and tatoo designs of them. I would love to have a drawing of one, whether it is pre-existing or one you draw for me( I know you are uber busy with this so I don't expect much) and any size will do, including a bookmark. I also like the lighter shades of the color blue, along with green and purple, so if it includes one or more of those colors that would be awesome. Or maybe you could give me a few points so I could buy one of your prints. Either choice will be super-duper! If I don't get anything it's fine, I'm not gonna get my hopes up because I know you have gotten a ton of wishes already. I love the idea though and I think I will start preparing to do something like this for next year.

Hai! Im just bringing myself to do this now because I was too scared that asking you for somthing would be overloading you. I know you have a lot of other things to do for loads of other people so if you dont do mine its fine! Really! Im sure you are already so busy. I was just going to say that what would be really amazing to receive from you would be either a painting of my cat that I grew up with but had to be put down a couple of months ago or an icy wilderness scenery or a bobcat northen lights spirit. I couldnt decide so I thought I would give you all three so whichever one you thought was quickest and maybe had a little bit of time to do after everyone elses you could pick. Thanks if you read his really long comment. Im sorry for taking up your time!

I think you deserve a huge thank you for what you are doing and I want to give you something!
the problem is the only thing I can give you is my art (and i'm not that great), so if you are ok with it i'd love to draw something for you and send it or something.. :)
if you would have any extra time left (which I assume you won't have) I would like to ask for any art work you make, just a little something like a bookmark or a little sketch, but that's only after you finish other people's requests or if you have a drawing you can send or something...
anyway, I'd like to say again you are amazing and I think next year maybe you should ask some friend to join you if you want to because then you could send more stuff :)
happy holidays!

I changed my mind; I'm fine with doing a ship-y thing-y. SO I'm kinda... Cancelling (?) my old wishlist....

I would REALLY like some bookmarks (I am particularly fond of equines, wolves and big cats).
And any A4 or A3 art featuring any of the above animals would be lovely <3

Of course, I don't expect to get it, with SO many wishes, but its nice to be able to put it in writing <3

Do you need my address now, or only if I get something requiring shipping?

Hi, I don't have much for my wishlist. I just really want to get a print to hang on the wall as a little surprise gift for my family. hehe it's gonna be so epic if they walk into the house from work and see their gift hanging on the wall :squee:

I'm not sure if they'll let me give you my address though :/. Is it alright if I could just have the points for it? I'd love to get the biggest one, but that's round 2000 points, and I know that's way too much to ask for. Just give me however much, every point helps me get there little by little, and even if I can't get it this year, there's always next year. 

Thanks for this, it's so generous of you. :hug: Happy holidays

My wishlist is simple!!! I am writing a story and having trouble with designing two characters, I'd love a drawing of the two of them together, especially with your amazing style, i just love your art!!!
Wishlist: A drawing of a pure white, ghost like wolf (rather large and bulky in his stature) named Sirius with a four legged, black and gray dragon named Silas.

I would love to see your take on these two!!!

You're such an amazing person to do this for people :) Good luck!

I've never seen anything like this before; this is incredibly kind and amazing of you!

I suppose the only real thing I could think of would be a small dragon sketch or art of some sort that I could maybe use as a tattoo around my ankle. If that's too much to ask, really any of your dragon art is absolutely fantastic. It doesn't really matter to me.

Maybe if you have any spare time, could you possibly make a custom wolf for my good friend :dev ice fury 34: (without the spaces)? She adores wolves so much, but I can't draw wolves for the life of me. I figured this would be a good surprise for her. She deserves something special for the holidays.

Or, perhaps some sort of art for my other friend, :dev aii dae:?

If you do happen to get to this one, thank you so so much :hug:
I really hope you have a nice day ^^

Oh my goodness you are so generous and thoughtful!

I almost don't feel right posting a wishlist because you are too kind and I don't want to take advantage.
But if you are still able.. I'd love art or prints (I have a wishlist here on dA but I don't know how to share it.. but a list of fav dA artists is on my profile page.) Also, I've been really wanting to try out Acrylic Inks, so a little set of those would be nice if you prefer sending stuff via mail? But really.. even just a holiday card or little sticker/bookmark or something would be so lovely.

And I definitely would like to get your address so that I can send you a little something as well!
Happy Holidays sweetie! :hug:

My wishlist is anything small really. I'd prefer a bookmark, but any piece of your artwork, a card, or something small like a steampunk Key chain or necklace, even a sticker would be fine with me. I'm not too picky, just one of these things would be more than enough xD.

 I think this is really sweet of you to do something like this. But don't feel obligated to sent me anything if you run out of things. I completely understand :D
