You Are An INFJ
The Protector

You live your life with integrity, originality, vision, and creativity.
Independent and stubborn, you rarely stray from your vision - no matter what it is.
You are an excellent listener with almost infinite patience.
You have complex feelings, and you take great care to express them.

In love, you see relationships as an opportunity to connect and grow.
You enjoy relationships when they are improving and changing. You can't stand stagnation.

At work, you stay motivated and happy... as long as you are working toward a dream you support.
You would make a great photographer, alternative medicine guru, or teacher.

How you see yourself: Hardworking, ethical, and helpful

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Manipulative, weak, and unstable
What can I say?  The first thing I wanted to do at uni was photography, but ended up teaching.

I'm getting on to this one while it's fresh!  Snagged from nuit2005 and lunastormdancer 

You Belong in Dublin
Friendly and down to earth, you want to enjoy Europe without snobbery or pretensions.
You're the perfect person to go wild on a pub crawl... or enjoy a quiet bike ride through the old part of town.

I added a header image!

Not sure how long I'll keep it as I'm not sure it's what I really want, but I dare say it will probably be a while through lack of opportunity to do another. At least I know how to put one in anyhow :D

For posterity's sake...

About time I post the Xmas cards I made last year methinks! I made about 4-6 of each of these, all after the start of December, but most of the stamped images I'd done a few years ago borrowing my sister's stamps (hence, they didn't take so long to do). At that stage I wasn't keeping track of stuff I'd used, so had to try and work it out afterwards or ask my sis if she could remember. There's a couple of things I haven't worked out yet, but I want to get on with posting these.

They're all fairly simple in style since I did them so quickly, but I was fairly happy with them.

Haven't got photos off the camera yet or I'd be posting about Supanova. Suffice for now to say that things got basically finished enough that things were wearable. Actually only got a couple of photos of Lachie's, so I'm intending to take more pics before posting about it all anyway.

For now, a few more cards from last year. These were all made rather quickly so are none too flash. Better stuff coming some time soon when I upload pics.

This is mainly for the costumers, but I welcome the input of anyone!

I started today looking into what I'd need to do for my pregnant Morgaine costume, from how it's described in the book. Marion Zimmer Bradley doesn't give a lot of description to clothes throughout the book, and all I've got to go on for pregnant Morgaine is from just before she gives birth.
- dark blue kirtle that is too long (borrowed from her aunt), faded and threadbare
- her shoes were below the ankles
- her hair was tangled and in a loose braid, but then redone by her aunt
There are a few other things I can suppose and infer from what's written elsewhere in the book, but basically that's it.

Gosh, it was over a year since I posted any cards! Will have to do this in stages as there is just so many.

I wasn't the only one to have a baby last year of course, and made these for my fellow pregnant friends.

Have been busy as might have been gathered, and while I'm pretty much keeping up with reading OL (sans fanfic, not sure when I'll get back to that), ACG and LJ I just don't get to comment or post as often as I'd like.

Anyhoo, I'm here today as part of my cleaning up my computer desk :p  So I've started updating my lj, beginning with a new layout, just need to add userpics and a header now!  But I have a pile of stuff here to deal with before I can clear it away...

Thanks for the Xmas cards-
gemelliragazza of course I love that it's handmade, and thanks for the gemstone too <3
ki_kiwigirl alas, the edge of the envelope was torn open, and instead of your wonderful creation I only had a few stones and silver bits left in the tissuepaper.  Can't tell for sure if it might have been deliberate or accidental, but I'm sorry I didn't get to see what you'd made for me.  Thanks for the thought and effort *hugs*
nuit2005 Love the cute chipmunk card, and the soap of course, though haven't yet got to use it *hugs*
lunastormdancer the bookmark is surprisingly in use, only get to read a couple of pages at a time though (re-reading Mist Of Avalon for the umpteenth time, but this time for costume-research purposes)  Love it *hugs*
krazymoonkat Leggy's legs suffered a bit of water damage unfortunately, but another 'crafted' card, thanks so much *hugs*
and lambchop33 *careful squishy hugs*

Thanks again to Gem and Ki for the birthday card too.  I'm pretty certain I will only ever have to use the Express Checkout!
Want to also direct folks to the card my sister made for me, FOTR Arwen inspired, which can be seen here
