Not a whole lot going on this week, but it's the holidays and traffic is down. You can take a look at the current Back to Basics post on Fantasy models, looking at cloth and leather and read about a new service I tried called Blogged. Other than that, Happy Holidays, and shortly, Happy New Year!
Spending more than a week on vacation with my trusty 10 year old Sony P3 900mhz laptop, I find the layering in my blog and some of the widgets cause a little lag in the load times - I hope this isn't a problem for most of my readers, so please let me know. As a new year treat, I may have a surprise soon into 2011. Even though I'm on vacation away from the snow, there are a few things I've prepared for y'all this week, so stick around. Also, links are now underlined to stand out a little better.
