There are many projects on DA which have a exchange or something called Secret Santa. I support this project called "Elf Christmas Wishes". Its all about... making a list. And see what will happen. For my part - I look for other lists and grant wishes every year. Each year I do this, I heard of more and more people being visited by an Elf.

:target:How to make the list is easy::target:
:santa::star::rudolph: CHRISTMAS WISHES!


Step 1.

Make a post in your dA journal (the manual INCLUDED - I wont grant any wishes, if I see no manual). The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on 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.

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. 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 you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--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:

1) artwork
2) A card - self made, posted here on DA (or send to me in e-mail - I cannot return real snail mail cards, so it would be unfair to request ones.)
3) warm socks
4) colorful pillows
5) origami paper
6)  any drawing supplies from these: www.jetpens.com/Uni-ball-Kuru-… - www.jetpens.com/Pentel-Stein-E… - www.jetpens.com/Koh-I-Noor-Toi… - www.jetpens.com/Prismacolor-Pr… - any whole pans from here: www.stpetersburgwatercolours.c…
7) comment either on my front page, journals or artwork
8) to find friends in UK - Coventry anyone?
9) be together with B - the gentleman
10) place where I can feel like at home

The Elves can reach me here on DA via note or on my email (you can see it on the bottom of my commission chart journal).

I will be granting wishes until 6th of January.

great idea, I think I'll be joining!
is the deadline 6th January obligatory for all participating, or do we set the deadline to ourselves individually?
Reply
:iconsaniika:
saniika Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2013  Professional General Artist
Hi! I set myself that deadline since in my country it is considered "christmas themes holidays" up till that day and I thought it would be better than just having it in American spirit - till 25th of December.
I was giving out presents some years even after that day - so really - nothing is binding. :) Id say you are free to do what you want and how you want it to do.
:highfive: Just have fun!

This looks actually very interesting! More than a classical "secret santa" actually. It has some spirit I like and fits quite a lot to christmas. |D Making some people's dream come true... that really sounds like a nice thing to do.

I do this more years now actually and its always better - more people happy - be it getting their wish fulfilled or fulfilling a wish of others. And no matter what option... they are happy :) at least it looks to me like that. :highfive: glad you joined us!
