OT - hi everyone! Just wanted to drop in and say hello… and share some news.

I had been in and out of the hospital pretty much the entire first two weeks of November. But on November 15, when I was admitted to the hospital with severe pre-eclampsia, and the doctors decided to induce me. The medication for induction didn’t take, so on Saturday, November 17, I had a c-section and gave birth to my little son, Jesse. He was 5 weeks early, 4lb, 7.6oz and 19 inches long. He was in the NICU for 12 days, and on Thursday evening, my husband and I took him home for the first time!

So… we’re home now, and I’m sure I’ll have a little bit of free time to come back and start participating in contests again. I’ve missed you all terribly!

Here’s a picture of me with him when he was in the NICU, he was about a week old here.

What a sweet and happy photo! 

Congratulations Perlk!  May Jesse be healthy, happy and strong in every way.

Thank you, Tallulah!

Lord Ganther, maybe you should send your elves out to scavenge one of these. Just don’t let the marshal catch you. LOL

Oh wow! Just like back home! Seriously…I’ve seen a few in my day. Now you’re making me thirsty…

Title: Lucy Discovers That Shroeder is also a Percussionist
Here’s what really happened when Lucy insulted Beethoven in front of Shroeder: dah dah dah DUN!


http://www.daz3d.com/index.php?_cfgetx=img.rx:600;img.ry:400;&&ACT;=50&fid=41&aid=36763_8nwmtYg83denelHv3Kav&thumb=1&board_id=1

That’s funny, but Shroeder isn’t the violent type.

Dana

That’s the theme of this month: a different take on the story. smile  Besides that, Lucy could make a Saint turn violent. grin

Alexa wink

Not the violent type? On more than one occasion Schroeder yanked the piano out from under Lucy, thunking her head on the floor.  My favorite Peanuts gag…

Schroeder to Lucy: “Lucy, do you like Beethoven?”
Lucy: “I don’t know. Maybe just a small glass.”

Wonderful render, Alexa. You caught the spirit of the strip!

There are only 3 more days for the mini contest, and only 1 entry. BWSman is going to get all the prizes if no one else enters. Sunday midnight is the last day for the mini with a $5 DAZ GC and Santa sleigh with gifts.

Very nice perlk, nice too see one of your renders again. All links good, and yes the MIA Holiday room is definitely not there, was that the holiday room that SAMS3D had? You have enough freebies to qualify and your ENTRY IS ACCEPTED as we are saying now. Love the postwork one too. too bad you couldn’t find a free smoke to work for the steam effect.

Yeah, all the smoke I could find were brushes and end up qualifying as post-work. The only fog prop I could find didn’t work, I tried it and it looked silly. Oh well.

The holiday room was the one given away in 2010 by DAZ. I couldn’t find it anywhere other than at that link but the link to download is dead. :-(

Yes, unfortunately most of the old PA 24days giveaways went missing in action along with the old freebie archive.

This makes Kara a very sad panda indeed. Good thing I keep back-ups.
