I am totally in the holiday spirit, and have come up with a way that I would love to shower you all in gifts and treats.
Until December 24th (Don't be offended if you don't celebrate Christmas, it's just what my family celebrates) I will be giving away prizes, treats, drawings, you name it...
I will not tell when I am about to give something away. You just have to keep your eyes peeled Sometimes it will be in the form of a journal entry, sometimes it might be a favorite-to-win drawing, sometimes it might have to do with a poll, sometimes I might just pick someone that I want to give something to, ect. The possibilities are endless.
These gifts will range from small, to fairly large.
So keep your eyes open
December 6th: For my first little giveaway the stakes are starting out relatively small (: I am giving 100 points away! Just comment on this journal, and I will randomly select a winner (probably draw a name out of a hat or something). BUT WAIT. There is a twist. I will double that point amount (200 points) if the winner decides to give those points to another deviantARTist. I'll probably pick the winner tonight sometime around 9-10 EST.
The winner of this giveaway is ~Cutiepi97 Congratulations! I had my brother give me a random number between 1 and 58 (he chose 23) and so the 23rd person to comment won Stay tuned though! More giveaways are yet to come!
December 7th : Hey guys!! I have a drawing I am giving away Go to that deviation for details. I will pick the winner in 24 hours! Happy Holidays!!
So...It has been 24 hours And with 1,453 favorites to chose from in that time, there was a lot of competition! I put those numbers in a generator and the generator came up with #697 CONGRATULATIONS!
December 11th: Wow! You guys impressed me Haha. A lot of you guys got tons of answers correct, but one person answered the most! Congratulations You win a 3 month premium membership!
December 11th: I want to play Santa over the next 48 hours or so. Anyone can leave a wishlist, and I will try to grant wishes on that list
Things to remember when leaving wishes: I do not have unlimited money haha, keep wishes reasonable, deviantART related wishes might make more sense, you can put as many things as you like on your wishlist but remember I am just one person , be creative!!!
I want to grant as many wishes as possible on my minimal funds, so let's see what you guys ask for
I might have to get my brother or someone unbiased to pick people if I get a lot of wishlists.
Edit: As expected I am getting A LOT of wishlists (: Definitely keep them coming, but do remember I am just one person. Please please don't be offended if I can't get everybody something, or if I have to gift something smaller than the original request. Please be mindful that I have a very strict budget I have set aside for deviantART gifts this year
Edit: Haha so I am slowly working through your guys' whishlists! I've only given points and Premium memberships so far...but art is to come...haha. That just takes time. Please remember I have a very long Santa list. I will probably not be able to do large, complete paintings. Still, I think you guys will be pleased (; Be on the lookout!
UPDATE : Sooo... I have realized that a lot of you guys want art and stuff. I would love to ship you guys things, but I can't do that without addresses. Of course, giving out an address can be a touchy matter. So please read carefully. If you want an original drawing, christmas card, or some other thing that requires shipping, please NOTE ME your address (only if you feel comfortable doing so). I promise I will not mail spam or give out your address to anyone else. It will only be used for the purpose of shipping gifts. Please realize that I can not ship a gift without an address X.X
Also, please realize that I have a crazy long Santa list. It is upsetting, but I am probably not going to be able to give absolutely everybody something. I have over 75 lists XD I am really trying my best though And feel free to keep sending them in.
December 15th: (UPDATE) Hey guys! I have about 150 wishlists between comments and notes combined. I feel so so bad, but I simply cannot take anymore wishlists. I will be lucky to grant even a fraction of the wishes I have so far XD. Please please do not be upset if I can't get to your request (: I am picking randomly so everything is unbiased. I will try my best to get a few more wishes granted, but I am nearing the end of this giveaway. I should have more 'fave to win' pictures up and PM giveaways closer to Christmas.
Thanks guys! Happy Holidays.
