1) we've already told some of the usual subjects, but general announcement time: sarah and i are hosting a new year's eve thing for anyone who wants to come. it will be a typical exceptionally low-key thing, probably involving video game and/or movie watching. more details as we approach the date.
2) holiday cards! as in, we want to send you one. the parameters, as always:
-- please don't assume we already have your address. even if we sent you a card last year. even if we sent you something last week
-- all comments to this post are screened, plz leave your address, especially what we should address the envelope as.
-- if you wear jewelry and tend to like our style(s)
, also let us know what colors you like and if you wear/don't wear earrings vs necklaces, etc. (or, if you're a knitter and would like stitch markers instead, we can do that too!) we have a bunch of stuff we-and-others made to give away that we haven't gotten around to, well, giving away! so we want to send it out as random-december-holiday-or-new-years gifts. (for those with metal sensitivities: all our earrings use surgical-grade stainless steel earwires, which accounts for the majority of of metal sensitivities. if you know for certain that you react to surgical stainless, we have a very very limited
number of niobium earwire sets that we can use instead if absolutely necessary.)
-- offer (for cards and/or jewelry) is open to anybody who sees this post. yes, even if you lurk and never comment. yes, even if you see this post on your network or on latest things. we like sending stuff. :)
(edit: yes, we are happy to send things to people not in the US as well!)
