Thomas has taken to writing on my arms in sharpie recently. This one was cute, so I thought I should share.
Sorry everyone that there hasn’t been an update in a while! Thomas and I have been fairly busy since we got home. Thomas has been preparing for interviews and sending out resumes, and I recently was offered a conditional offer of employment from the TSA, in addition to our busy social lives. We are actually heading to Seattle for a few days soon, for one of our good friend’s birthday.
For anyone interested, I am also free for commissions ♥
Happy holidays, everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful time, however you are spending it. I conned this photo out of Thomas earlier this evening - a photo, by the Christmas tree, without smirking or snarling! It’s a Christmas miracle!
Thomas and I earlier today at the Mt. Shasta Caverns! Today is our 6 month anniversary, and I loved spending it with him in such a beautiful place. We are still currently on our way to SoCal, but I have figured out this mobile posting with tumblr, so I will try to post occasionally. After Thomas and I get back home after the holidays, he is planning on using the over $300 we’ve saved up in the Man Jar to start him on hormones! A trans guy he knows pointed him in the direction of a cheap place to get hormones/blood tests, so we can afford it now (even after spending a little bit of the funds on a new binder). <3
Photo update! Two photos since this could potentially be our last update until the new year… :( Thomas and I are going down to southern California together tomorrow to visit with my family for the holidays. I am unsure how much internet connection we will have, so we will see. If I am unable to post anymore until the new year, Happy Holidays, everyone!
Photo one is of Thomas and I being silly on the coast, for my birthday. Bad Decision Beach Adventure ‘11. Thomas and I had only been dating for about a month at the time, but it was the best birthday ever. All three of my favorite ladies came AND so did my man. Fun times.
The second photo is from the same 1920’s party I’ve posted a picture from before. Birthday party for my lovely friend Maren. Excellent party. From left to right: Thomas, me (Xtina), Jordan, Maren
Pixel art commission done for a mutual friend of Thomas and mine! For an awesome secret project he’s making for his girlfriend.
Photo update! Thomas and I at Alpenrose Dairy Farm. Him, his family and I all went there for some Christmas festivities a few days ago. Thomas is not so hot on Christmas, thus the smirk. (Christmas is my favorite holiday, and he puts up with a lot of my antics. He’s such a good man.)
Also, Thomas is working on his own tumblr! When he finally gets it set up how he likes it, I’ll post a link for anyone interested!
Another one of Thomas’ and I’s friends is doing fundraising for us! For anybody who lives in the Portland, Oregon area, The CoG Factory is having open studio tonight (12/14), tomorrow night (12/15), and every night open next week (12/19-12/23), and an amazing 50% of profits are going towards T for Thomas! I hope all you creative Portlanders show up!
Third commission finished! This is for Jenna, a friend/co-worker of my cousin Karen. Her family’s dog recently died, and so this is in memoriam.
I have one more commission to finish before Thomas and I leave for the holidays (he’s joining my family in SoCal in about a week), but I am open for commissions starting after the holidays! Either send me an ask in our ask box or at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Hey all! One of Thomas’ friends is being very generous: between December 16 and 18, her Etsy shop (HERE), which sells adorable feather earrings, is donating 10% of all profits to our fund! Please check her out, since her stuff is amazing, and she’s so sweet for supporting us.
In general news, we have raised $205 so far! Wow, thank you everyone for the AMAZING support! Both Thomas and I appreciate it greatly. The money will likely be going towards his name change soon. He cannot get his gender marker changed on his ID yet (because of Oregon laws), but he can at least change his name now. Thank you for every donation, commission, follow, like, and reblog. You guys rule. ♥
Thomas’ friend Badger’s commission! She commissioned a drawing of her boyfriend, dressed up as Mal from Firefly, but without a shirt.. ha. My commissions are certainly entertaining, to say the least. Color pencil and watercolor.
