nope. completely unbribable
A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather & ask for it back when it starts to rain. 

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

Sally, Kev, I sent you a PM a couple of days ago; any chance you could take a look if you get a spare minute?

Best,
Mike

Aye mine were meant to arrive tuesday to wednesday too so I'm hoping it's just a case of the busy christmas rush! Sent a little note in too with my email etc before I realised they were writing on the facebook pictures once they'd received them. I'll go but my patient and calm hat on  :wink:

Well right on I cannot wait till the next one! And a huge cudos goes to the competitors this year because your sculpts rock so hard!! I am very excited about a community like this as I am a brand new sculptor. Thanks to HF for supporting something this cool, right on!!

Oh they've done a really fantastic job! More than just sculpting for grats, the chance to have something you've made be cast in metal and for sale is epic :D

I will send mine in the post next week as I have been busy with an xmas/birthday weekend with my partner and my folks ^_^
Machines we are sending to the skies,
Above us all.
And leave behind those who don't know,
Of the final day.
We leave in sleep those who don't know,
(and) we leave at dawn.
We are driven by the B-machine,
Wild B-machine - that never stops.

I hope it's not breaking the rules but after reading some posts about sculpts not being castable I took a good close look with a magnifying glass at mine and found that a couple areas might be a problem. Notably the strings holding her chest piece on and a small section of where the hair meets the neck. So I stuffed a tiny bit of GS here and there to fix it. I hope that makes it castable and theres nothing else I might not be aware of. The changes I did didn't modify the model in any significant way. Off in the mail it is.
Excuse me...Just looking for my pants.

Maybe I didn't understand... I didn't know I have to send the green to Hasslefree... or the chosen only must do that?

Everyone has to send them in. They will then cast every entry in metal I believe

Bloody thieving post office.... I can't afford to ship mine in time. It'd ridiculously (prohibitively even) expensive to send anything from Canada to the UK at short notice. 70$ for 3-5 week delivery.... Bah. Guess I'll have to drop out.

Alex, I sent mine in for a total cost of $8.88 Canadian, albeit about about three weeks ago.
Yours won't make it there before Christmas, but that shouldn't matter.  Definitely send them in, can't hurt.
