First off I just wana say thankyou so much to aall my watchers and followers. Seriously, you guys give me a reason to just keep on drawing. xD
Secondly, well here's tartii's little christmas wish.
Last night, I could not stop tossing and turning, my mind was SWIMMING with ALL SOOORTS of thoughts and ideas what I want to do for this christmas. Ill lay it out to you front and center what my wish is, and then if you want to read my little story, then you can.
This year, I want to give my mom and dad 'relief' and 'smiles.' I want to give them something that will make them smile so much and feel so happy and take a load off their shoulders at the same time.
Basically, this christmas I want to give them $400, because I think they deserve it. Now its not just some big number I want to throw at them.
The thing is....I have three younger siblings. I am the eldest out of all four of us. This year, Mom and Dad were pulling their hair, struggling to think how they were guna afford christmas presents. My Dad wanted to skip it all together, my mother insisting that we couldnt just not do it. So for each kid, they agreed on spending $100 dollars on us.
In this country, that may not seem like allot, but to me that means something incredible.
First off, my family has suddenly been faced with this big bill to fix our water well because it was over ten years old. When that had to be done, I could just see my parents gritting their teeth. Every time I went out with my mom, she would murmer about how much she had to spend on gas, and Im pretty sure she didnt intend for me to hear, but I can tell how stressed she was.
And my Dad? Well hes obviously been under a lot of pressure. One, he had to find a new job this year, and because of that weve had to work out lots of insurance issues and the like. He snaps at little things. Not bad snaps, just you can tell he gets REALLY mad. And the poor guy is working to feed a family of six.
My Mother and Grandmother will be spending our first christmas without my grandfather...which will be really hard for them I know. They wont show it...they are strong, but if it were me and I had lost a husband or father....i dont know how id still smile through it all. Both are AMAZING people. My Mom constantly spends time with our Church, working days she shouldnt have to, constantly going out to serve people in need. My grandmother? LITERALLY drives several miles just to feed these kittens under this strawberry stand and give them fresh water. They both do INCREDIBLE things without expecting anything in return. Like Mother like Daughter.
Just a lot of things this year that weigh on my parents. So I want to be able to PAY for the gifts they are getting me and my siblings. Honestly, getting gifts doesnt give me as much as a rush as it does GIVING them. There is nothing like seeing the joy and smiles on my mom and dads faces. I love making people feel happy, there is nothing like it in the world.
Now if I told my Mom what I have planned for them....yeah she MIGHT get mad lol. She wants me to focus on just getting a car. But honestly? I just want to see her with a load off her shoulders. And for Dad to be able to not STRESS about something. And my grandma?...well I want her to just be happy. We all spend christmas together.
So this is my plan: I am not going to spend ANY money till after christmas. I wont buy commissions, fast food, or little pleasures. As incredibly HARD as that is going to be for me, cuz Im a spend-a-holic. But until I reach my goal NO money will be spent.
I am going to take on LOADS of commissions until I reach this goal. I also plan on having me and my siblings write special notes to each of them saying how much we love and appreciate everything they do for us.
SO if you want to help out, please buy a commission from me.
Just send me an email at tartiitastic[at]gmail.com
I want to be able to give them something great.
Now, I like....never ask for this....pretty much ever. But if you would like to donate a little bit to this, even if its just a dollar or less!
I have set up a seperate paypal account:
ALL money I receive for commissions will be for ONLY my wish for my parents, and to pay the bills I have and get my grandmother something nice. All donations will be for STRICTLY my christmas wish.
Thankyou for taking the time to check this out. If you have any doubts, I am not asking anybody to just throw their money at this. I am willing to work for this money. If you have any questions or concerns I will be happy to answer them.
