Exciting things.

Well, Christmas is nearly here. It's been a fun year.

I can confidently say that I have been blessed enough to make more this year with my art than ever before! My prayer is that I can claim that again this time next year!

My wifey and I just got back from being with her best friend. She gave birth today to a lovely little girl - the same day as my best friend's birthday, too! Since getting home, I've managed to finish a draft of a design that I was asked to do and I'm going to start making a doll now.

I'm pretty excited about Christmas this year. It's my first Christmas in America, so it's going to be fun seeing what new traditions I'll be involved in. At the moment, my wifey and I share our family quirks and manage to have ourselves a four-day Christmas. It's great!

I prepared a scavenger hunt for her for Boxing Day. I know we'll have it free to ourselves because it's not a thing over here. I'll post what I did after the day - I don't want to spill it all here and have her read it. That would be a waste of a day! But I can say that it was a challenge for me to think up and a joy to do.

This might be the first Christmas that I know what I'm getting. I think the grammar there was right...
I ordered a few camera lenses, so I'm going to have a lot of fun playing with them. My mother-in-law gave me her Canon Rebel about a week and a half ago, so I'm ecstatic!

I also got my hands on Final Cut Studio, so I can't wait to get that installed. With the shopping and the wrapping and projects that I'm working on and dealing with both my bank card 'breaking' and lovely issues with my Green Card, I haven't had much down time. Hopefully that'll roll around about this time next week.

For now, the above is a picture of me in a dream I had a couple of weeks ago. It was a pretty cool dream. I described it and drew it for my wifey the morning after. It was a lovely example of how our brains differ!
Apparently, the two hemispheres of my manbrain are slightly farther apart than her ladybrain. The same is true for most other men and women. This means that us men have the ability to picture what an object is like from any angle without having to physically pick it up and turn it round. Or at least we have a much better idea. On the other brain, it's easier for women to express themselves emotionally and make quicker emotional connections - because more of their synapses are intact; they haven't been broken from the larger gap between brain sides.

In summary;
I drew my first-person dream as a bird's eye view and she didn't know how I could do that.

I'm tired. That was far too much writing for this time of night. It wasn't even us that had a baby.

Thanks for reading. I appreciate it.
