I found this project on the journal of the great and talented :iconsaniika: and I thought: what a nice idea! So I decided I'll do it too!
Here goes. Sorry for the blatant copypasting from her journal by the way...

I welcome you this year - 2014 - to the project "Elf Christmas Wishes". You might have seen Secret Santa entries on DA or something else Christmas themed having to do with some sort of exchange. This one is different though. It's all about... making a list. And see what happens.


Step 1.

Make a post in your dA journal and make sure that you include these instructions. Copypasting is simple. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple gifts ("I'd love a picture or icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for this DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want. They can be tangible things or even intangible, abstract things like happiness or health for yourself or significant others.

If you wish for real-life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Step 2.

Surf around your friends list (or friends friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. I recommend using the same journal title so as to make the search easier. And now here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if for example you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift card you won't use, or anything -do it.
You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

Step 3.

The list: here's mine. I've changed item 5) as of Wednesday 5, november 2014 to include something I just thought of.

1) a handwritten letter or card, sent via snail mail (I will answer via snail mail if I receive one: I just love that personal touch)
2) some fanart of my OC Bellerefo…
and in general see whole subgallery…
3) for my family and friends to be healthy
4) for my career as comic artist to be successful
5) for one of my friends here on deviant art to receive commissions in this period
 :iconsaniika: :iconlelia: :iconlastbeach: :iconfusspot: :iconjebriodo: :iconmichelmammi: :iconsykosan:
6) advices and tips on perspective, anatomy and inking techniques
7) a Wacom Intuos Pro medium sized tablet. (My Intuos 3 is nearly destroyed...)
8) a new set of brush pens (I use mainly the Pentel Pigment Ink Brush Pen, like… and I use them for tiny stuff like hatching, so I need thin/fine ones and they can't be found where I live... I'm also open to trying new types of brush pens if you know better ones)
9)one book from the following (o- look! Free shipping worldwide here!):…………………………

10) one t-shirt (my size is XL) from the following:………………

:xmas:The Elves can reach me here on DA via note.
:xmas:I will be granting wishes until 6th of January 2015. You can select any other date you are comfortable with - there is no rule about this!

Lastly, here's the original post!
