Dept. of Holiday Fun

[community profile] fandom_stocking !!

For many people it's [community profile] yuletide . Others have other online gift, fic, and everything else exchanges that they love. But for me, [community profile] fandom_stocking says Holiday Fun like nothing else. Consider this my invitation to join me by hanging your own stocking up.

Here's the sign-up sheet - and I hope loads of people on my f'list sign up — because that way, I can fill your stockings, which gives me a great deal of joy.

I really want to emphasize that hanging your stocking in no way mandates that you fill anyone else's stocking. That's not what this is about, at least not for me. I guess that I'm being a little selfish, because this is the time of year that I love to write in, the time of year when I hunt down recipes I think people might like, or look for pictures that I can make into greeting cards with my incredibly tyro graphic abilities, the time I pore through peoples' wish lists to see if I can fulfill any of those wishes. Over the past four years, in fact, fandom_stocking has come to mean something very special to me in this holiday period.

So ... if you used to take part and haven't for a while, consider starting up again. If you've never done
[community profile] fandom_stocking , consider doing it, even if it's just to shut me up.

If you don't have the time or inclination I do, all my urgings to the contrary, understand. Consider this my one effort to pimp for what I think is a lovely little community.

Stockings are going up already!

Fandom Stocking is a nice low pressure challenge. I hope there are more people asking for icons this year as there weren't many last year. I'm an easy fill because of all the illustrated medieval manuscripts national libraries have put online.

I definitely need to learn how to make icons; I love getting them, and I should be able to give in return, eh?

The ability to make an icon does help if you're in a fandom of one in dire need of an icon for yourself or a friend who is sadly afflicted with the obscure:)

You know, I've never done Fandom Stocking. Only because I do not have much to give, really...*hangs head*

You should do it this year, my dear. Do it.

Dooooooooo it!!!

As I've said to other folks, Fandom Stocking doesn't require huge fics; I've given drabbles, found recipes for people, made a couple of seasonal greeting cards from photos, and put them in folks' stockings. Sometimes I've just wished people a Happy Yule.

And remember that people want to give - probably as much, or more, than they want to receive. So hang a stocking and let people gift you!

Well...for once, I did as asked, lol!! though I have NO idea how to look through other people's stockings - much less my own!!
