Secret Santa Exchange List

December 22nd, 2011 by Cobwebs

Our third Secret Santa Can Suck It exchange was heaps of fun, and everybody outdid themselves with their gift ideas. Below is a list of all the participants: Go take a look at all the splendid virtual gifts!



pdq doesn’t have a blog, so I’m posting her gift for xJane here.

For xJane: a small home makeover in an All-Things Cthulhu vein.

For the dining room, a lovely chandelier to eat calamari by.

For the living room, a spectacular octopus coffee table to park her re-animation beverages on of a morning.

Then there’s the reading room. If she doesn’t have one, I’m giving her an addition to house one so that she may park herself on her lovely octopus chair (with her Cthulhu scuffs nomming her soles) and read the entire collection of H. P. Lovecraft’s work. I’m throwing in the many Cthulhu-cycle stories by other authors, like Neil Gaiman’s A Study in Emerald because they are sooooooo good.

Her bedroom is in need of these sheets and such, and a necklace completes it all.

Happy Solstice, and a very scary one, to xJane and all the regulars at Shadow Manor :)

    xJane, I’m glad it meets with approval! That chair is one of my own very favoritest as well. I was hoping it wouldn’t be too much… y’know, octopoid. Muchas smooches to all and to all a marvelous Solstice :)

    Just as a by-the-way… I included that coffee table because not only does it look spectacular, the guy who did it was like me – that is, not a foundry worker. I’ve done castings but never attempted anything so large. It is impressive for more than just it’s looks, it is a real technical achievement. Got a big cheer from me when I read about how he went about it. Biggest thing I ever tried casting was no larger than my head.
