First off, happy weekend everyone!!! Hope all is going well!
I wanted to apologize for not sending out letters of thanks like I was going to. I still have the cards and everything, I just got caught up with moving and enjoying the heck out of my new eyes and my new life! (My world is a complete 180 of awesome from last year at this time :)
I also wanted to propose a round-up post! Actually, this was Perdicca's brilliant idea.
Please feel free to post here in the comments, links to fics or pics that you bought or received as a gift or pics of the pretty pretty items you got. Then I'll try to catalog them for easy viewing so everyone can revel in the splendor this auction had to offer.
In the meantime, ILU all!!!
It's been a few months since our wildly successful auction. If you've been following Sarina's progress, you'll know that surgery on both eyes was a success. We can't thank you all enough for making that happen.
We know that not everyone has received what they paid for yet. There was no hard and fast deadline; that is something to be worked out between buyer and seller. But we'd like to ask ALL SELLERS WHO HAVEN'T FULFILLED THEIR OBLIGATIONS TO PLEASE CONTACT THEIR BUYERS WITH A PROGRESS UPDATE. No one wants to have to nag to find out where the fic or fanmix or whatever they bought is, so please take the initiative and let them know roughly when you'll be coming through for them.
BUYERS: If you're having trouble contacting your seller, please leave a comment (comments are screened) telling us who your seller was, what they were selling and what contact info you have for them. We can attempt to contact them on your behalf.
My second surgery was a total success!!!! I'm now seeing better than I have ever seen in my entire life! I want to thank each and every person who participated in this! You've changed my life!!!!
As of today, I've donated $15 to www.theanimalrescuesite.com to support animals in Haiti. I donated $25 dollars to The American Humane Association, also to support animals in Haiti. And I donated $10 to Mercy Corp (Haiti).
Again, I cannot thank everyone enough! If you could all see the wonder on my face every time I step outside my door and look upon the world with totally new vision, I'm sure you'd be amused. It's amazing! So very very amazing! I cannot even describe how much the world has changed for me!
When I looked up at the stars last night, for the very first time in my life, I could see that they were actually twinkling! It took my breath away! I had never ever seen that before! (I could barely see the stars before )
cheers here's to all of you for making me the happiest, luckiest person ever!!!
Bidding has officially ended! Thank you so very much to everyone who participated!
