Hee - I'm in the middle of my annual Christmas Eve cookie baking marathon! So far, I've done three versions of oatmeal cookies - raisin/walnut, cranberry/macadamia/white chocolate chip, chocolate chip/pecan - and chocolate peppermint cookies. Still to go - gingerbread! :D

Thank you so much to saras_girl and dannyfranx, demicus, and leochi for the wonderful Christmas cards!! *hugs to you all* ^.^

One of my most loved books of all time is the Hobbit, so here is a little holiday greeting from Middle Earth!

So clever! So beautiful. I always love the wickedness you allow your dragons to have, and their glorious rows of sharp teeth. A very Happy Christmas to you, and I wish you all the best for 2015. ♥

Happy Christmas to you, dear!! And Happy New Year too! *hugs* Hee - thank you! Dragons, no matter how "tame" must always have a bit of wickedness and glorious rows of very sharp teeth. :D Besides, the teeth are fun to draw. ;-)

*huge hugs back!*

Yay for dragon grins! :DD Very many sharp teeth!! lol

I finally have had time to start reading your wonderful advent story! I am loving the snails so much!! And Harry and Draco too of course. ;-) I made a new snail icon from my art last year especially to use for this reply and I realized just now it looks somewhat like a FROST SNAIL! :D You may most definitely steal it to use yourself if you like.

Happy New Year to you, dear Nat!! ^.^
