Dear Polosatik,

Santa Claus left by a chance a gift for you in my house Smile I don't know how could it happen, but it did. He told me that he wasn't able to make some of your wishes come true (I'm sorry, you can't marry Plushy. He's already married Sad ) but he told me, than on Sunday you will get some special gift (I have no idea what he meant. He mentioned something about medals and podium but I don't know what he talked about... Who, me? ). He sent you also this video (ahhh this santa claus... He's more modern than me Rolling Eyes ) :

Dear clovera!

Santa Claus is very busy this year so he asked me, his loyal elfie Karolina, to give you this small gift:

Merry Christmas! May all your dreams and plans come true and your whole life be full of love, happiness and exciting moments, which will stay in your memory forever!

Have wonderful Christmas,
Your secret santa santa

Dear kaarolcia,

Santa told me that you've been very good this year, so he ordered me to give you a special gift. Sadly, I am just an apprentice, and it embarrasses me to say that the gifts I whipped out for you are a bit... sub-par. Er, nonetheless, I hope you appreciate the thought and effort.

Here we go!

And a TakaMao comic dedicated especially for you and Genie:

Dear bellarina,

I've been keeping this a secret, but I happen to be doing some part-time work for St. Nick (need the money to pay my mortage loan Depressed Crying ). I make the presents he hands out along with the other workers (yep, those little people; elves). But we are actually a bit pissed that Nick gets all the credit every year, when all he does is deliver them. Very Mad

I mean...us present makers are working 364 days an year (um, yeah we do have shifts but...) to get the stuff ready for all the kids around the world by Christmas...and you know, there are lots of them, even if you count out the bad ones who we're allowed to ignore (but Nick's been setting the criterias for being good sooooo low thesedays, we've been making toys for 99.9% of the kids. Faint2 ).

Meanwhile, Nick is on vacation 364 days every year, and works only on Christmas eve...He says it's the toughest night-shift there ever is, so he deserves to spend the rest of his time just having fun; shaking his little(?) round belly, like a bowl full of jelly, etcetera. Rolling Eyes

Anyway, so since we're so fed up with these terribly unfair working conditions, the elves and I have decided to hand out the presents which we made by ourselves this year! This way, maybe we can be noticed a bit more and get the credit we deserve! Mad

And besides, elves are much more suitable candidates to go down chimneys rather than some old fellow with merry dimples, a cherry nose, cheeks like a rose and likes to dress up in pink red (uh...no, he's not gay), who's btw under suspicion of having serious metabolic syndrome. Razz

Now, since there are many of us unlike the one and only jolly saint, we've divided the deliveries amongst eachother. I'm in charge of the internet deliveries. So well, sorry for the long intro but your present from Santa and Co., is in the links below! santa

For download: megaupload.com KQ3GWEKC&setlang=en
For quick view: http://www.megavideo.com/?v=DXK1VCM0

Sorry for the trouble, but I'd appreciate it if you'd download (129MB) and watch it cause the quality is much better than the quick view link. After you download, if there's no file extension, add [.avi] and double click the file to play. Others besides bellarina who like it are all welcome to download, too. I tried to upload it on Youtube, but because of the music and the base video clip I used, it kept getting blocked for copyright reasons (I hate their new blocking system!).

Hope you like it. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! cheers
Love K.Kimura (Pochi) Many Hearts

PS:Everyone else's gifts are all awsome!!!!! Really enjoying this!!!!! Very Happy

Dear Klarification,

You've been such a good girl this year that Santa tried really hard to give you the best gift. Unfortunately, Santa has minimal knowledge of video formatting and photoshop, so she is doing things in a more old-fashioned way. (But Santa did try to put a new spin on things). Hope you like it! Smile

http://secure.smilebox.com/ecom/openTheBox?sendevent=4d6a45314d4463324d7a413d0d0a&sb=1

Your Secret Santa,
Aoi santa


And here's a gift for Santa Genie ! We couldn't have made this possible without your help!

http://secure.smilebox.com/ecom/openTheBox?sendevent=4d6a45314e5455784e544d3d0d0a&sb=1

This is a little known secret but in fact, there's actually more than one Santa at the North Pole. Genie is our master Santa who gives orders to apprentice Santas, such as myself. Wink

Happy Holidays Everyone! Confetti

ETA: If the words are too small for you to see, try zooming out the screen. Sorry, I couldn't change the font of the letters.

Dear lovely Aoi, santa

I've always wanted to make a montage to this music and when I saw your name next to my secret number, it gave me the inspiration I needed to do it. It's not perfect, of course, but I hope it lives up to you and your admiration for Hisaishi's work.

Merry Christmas everyone! Daisies for you

Actually, the layout is not right, there's a combo missing. Razz
But this music is wonderful, I wish she used it someday.

Dear alyssa,

Santa hires specialist elves to make presents not available in stores sometimes, and what do you know - he hired me this year to create yours! However, we are not allowed to consult other elves in other departments (i.e. Video/Film/Mao montage making) to work together. Alas, your present is therefore a bit boring to watch. However, Santa and I hope you enjoy this present anyway, and that you have a WONDERFUL Christmas and a happy New Year!! Best wishes for 2011, Alyssa! (Well, okay, that's what I said. All Santa said was, "ho ho ho!" <-- Not a lot of help, that Santa...)

So here it is...a piano medley of songs Mao has used in her programs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-Gse_hbg9A

I hope you enjoy, alyssa!! Very Happy

Everyone's presents look amazing!!

Pochi, omg, I LOVE it so much!! The combination of Josh Groban's voice, Mao's skating, the little video clips of Mao on the side, the font/color of the lyrics, the way you made her glow a bit, etc etc....this is STUNNING. Thank you so much!! It's absolutely beautiful. I know I will be playing this over and over Very Happy Thank you!!! Everyone, please check out Pochi's work (I'd also recommend downloading it and then saving the file as an .avi) - it's gorgeous.

I'm so glad you like it bellarina! I've always wanted to make a Mao montage with Josh's music, esp with this song. The lyrics speak out almost all my emotions for Mao. I loved this song from the first time I ever heard it. So when I saw Josh in your list of favorite musicians, I thought this is the right opportunity to use it. This 'Ballade' performance was from 'The ICE' show, and I had been wanting to make a music change montage with it for quite some time, too. I had another song in mind at first, but you gave me the opportunity to try and see if 'You're Still You' would fit, and it did! I get so excited when my favorite music fits Mao's pros, I very much enjoyed creating it. Thank you for giving me the chance! Very Happy

ETA:And You play the piano GREAT!!!!! AMAZING! I was esp happy that you included Csardas. It's one of my favorite Mao music. This was the first time I ever listened to a piano version of it! Love

santa Merry Christmas Europeanfan!

I spent a really long time on this first present. I finished it a week ago, and have been waiting to post it. Well... when I went to share the video, the website told me I had to shorten it. A lot. I was so mad (it would have been really nice if they had told me that beforehand!...) So since the video wasn't what I wanted it to be originally, I took some of the other things you said you liked, made you a bonus present! Sorry to any big Brian fans. I know that's a bad pic of him, but it was just too perfect for the video not to use it!... Razz

Merry Christmas dawnsherearequiet!! santa

I introduced Santa to online gaming a few weeks ago but my, oh my, Santa is addicted. Silly me. Sweatdrop
He's getting rather lazy and the poor elves and gingerbread servants helpers are hardly getting any sleep.
Feeling guilty, I decided to help out a bit.

For starters, here is a mini greeting card-of-sorts that I actually sprited from scratch.
(I did cheat here and there though because pixel art is not something that can be done in an instant) Embarassed

Pixel Greeting Card - Christmas Tree
Pixel Greeting Card - Snow Tree
Chibi Santa Mao

I also made a little online photobook with my own version of the Twelve Days of Christmas for you to enjoy. I love you
Ironically the pixel greeting was thrice more time consuming to make than this.
clovera's Twelve Days of Christmas

Just flipping through the photobook is not much fun so here is the Twelve Days of Chritmas sung by Connie Francis to listen to as well.
Playing her Christmas album has always been a family tradition during this time of the year. Swoon

These aren't the most sophisticated gifts on the face of the earth, but I hope you like them! cat

Best Wishes,
Masami

Like a Star @ heaven Note: I'm enjoying everyone else's gifts too! Like a Star @ heaven

aoi88, thank you so much! Actually, I saw your gift already but I didn't get to post on the topic because I was on a rush. Anyway, I really like your gift, I can see the effort to make it unique. Thank you again!

And I'm so loving the other presents. It just shows how creative the people in this forum are!

And I don't know if you guys noticed... But it seems like Santa is the one being naughty this year. I mean, he ordered all of us to work and deliver presents when he has the whole year to prepare and do it himself. This is serious maltreatment, I'm considering filing a case against that old fart.
