Because I LOVE YOU

Unread postby Δύναμις » 11 Nov 2018 12:39

Dear supporters of our forum and our work,

without YOU and YOUR SUPPORT we wouldn't be here now and I want you to know how precious you are to me. It is not easy for me to express a heartfelt thank you each time you send us some donation and after saying thank you again and again to the same people for the same reason, it seems like something "formal" that needs to be said. But this is not me! I hate being forced to accept and not being able to give. I mean being able to give in 3d (not yet and not as much as I would like to).

Last night I finally had an idea how to share something "tangible" with YOU.
ALL of you, but in fact only with a couple of you each time.
Every month, starting from November 2018.

Let me explain first. Some of you know that I love creating new things and play with colours and shapes. My favourite experimental materials are beads and wool/yarn. I like crocheting and I decided to share some of my products with you.

RULES
    ~Each 1st of a month, we'll hold a raffle among all members and non members that either donated or bought an item or paid for classification/s during the previous month. Every incoming payment will get a number starting from 1.
    The number 1 will be for the 1st incoming payment of the month and I will write the name besides the number so I can identify the winners (i.e. #1 H., #2 C. etc.).
    ~Each payment gets you 1 ticket, independent of the amount. The donated/paid amount doesn't improve your winning chances.
    ~I will give away one item for every 10 payments received during the month.
    ~There will be a bigger handmade item (plaid or pillow or something else made of yarn) and a few smaller Pearlgonites or keychains.

What to do if you don't want your win or if you don't like the colour or if you already won last month?
You can choose something else or you can name someone that should have it.

I will post pics of the wins before the raffle.
The raffle results of the month will be visible in the private area of the forum.

I hope you like my idea :happy-sunshine:
Please let me know what you think about it and if you have any improvement suggestions.

:angry-tappingfoot: Okay Alexandra I can't let you get away with this thinking that you are forced to take and never give back.You should never ever think that!! If not for the Protoi everyone on this forum and those to come would be lost in a darkness that is incomprehensible to me. The Protoi are a beacon of light that most of us thought would never come. That in itself is worth more than we could ever give back and certainly can not be measured materially. Of course this is tough on us all, but the dark will be removed and this will all seem like a bad dream. Good things are coming :happy-jumpyellow:

No wonder I love you, my dear Mikey! You are just GREAT! :romance-kisscheek:

This is a very good point of course and you are quite right there. Even after all these years and all the ups and downs I can still say, yes, if not for the Protoi everyone on this forum and those to come (incl. all the light beings on earth and the Protoi themselves) would be lost in ... darkness. I know that my other parts do a good job wherever they are, but my avatar down here is very impatient and wants to do something too, so I keep experimenting and creating, because I just love doing it. And I love to see happy faces and also read how people feel when receiving my "babies/creations". And yes, it is true, I am forced to take but the reason I came up with the raffle idea was because I want to share what I have/create with as many people as possible and the raffle among our supporters will at least ensure that the items will go to good people that can appreciate them.

Thank you, my dear Shelly, :romance-kisscheek: but as I already explained I don't feel forced to give "back". I must admit that I struggled with that idea years ago. Nowadays I know that there is no need for that. I just love giving and sharing joy and I will do it as long as I can and as much as I can :happy-sunshine: Even a tiny bit of something can make things easier and give us strength if it comes in the right moment.

Dear Alexandra I love your idea ! :romance-adore: but I agree with what MickeyMo and Shellers said that you the Protoi are doing the work that cannot be measure in material way. I cannot imagine how difficult it must be to have this duty and responsibility so I want you to know that you are much appreciated for everything you do :text-thankyoublue: :romance-heartsthree:

P.S. Im looking forward to see your creations and get inspired as I also do some crocheting ( Im just beginner , learning from youtube :text-lol: )

:romance-smileyheart: Having said all that, I have big ears that stick out. So if I am ever fortunate enough to win the lottery I have to request a crocheted winter hat to cover them. I'm just kidding of course ( but not about the big ears) :happy-smileyflower:

Dear Alex,

I can totally relate and understand how you feel in terms of the joy of sharing/giving.

I feel it is not about giving back but more of an expression of love and caring.

One of the greatest gifts is the giving of ones time IMO and you and Frank have certainly given us that.

Many thank yous for that!!! :romance-heartsthree:

With that said, I look forward to seeing/hearing who wins the raffle....it is a really fun idea! :romance-grouphug:

:greetings-wavingyellow: friends and family :happy-sunshine:

Phew! I am finally done with the December giveaway. The biggest and most precious win this time is a blanket/throw. I needed over a week to finish this one and I hope that it goes to someone that really really wants it.

1. Pair of Pearlgonite keyrings (Diameter of the Pearlgonite 2.3cm, natural stone, red aventurine).
2. Standard set of Healing Cards (you'll have to cut them yourself though :happy-smileyflower: ).
3. Blanket/throw (approximately 1.20x1.80m, material: polyacryl, polyester, mohair, wool).
