Don't bother asking for gifts or money. Almost all of my money goes to submissions. Though I have been known to give gifts it is never to someone who asks. Only to those who deserve it without knowing it.
After moving across the country I am still without internet at home. That does not mean I haven't been making stuff, though! LOL As soon as I'm back online I will be submitting a lot of masks as well as a few outfits ^_^ (Though it's hard to match seams without the programs that require internet)
