P.S. Monkey and Penni have also agreed to make a few guest appearances in some of the non-book task posts I may post in future. =)

I love your organisation and your markers! Warm welcome back to both Penny and Magnetic Monkey. :)

I'll pass on a heads up re: the card; the 'old' doors will have a blue background that *might* blend with Magnetic Monkey's sweater.

Re: lack of sleep b/c you've lost yourself in a html hole - I hear you. Oh boy do I hear you. :)

I love your banner - I was trying to stay as non-denominational/secular as possible given the theme, but I missed not being able to use awesome Christmas art. :D

Thanks! At this point, I've actually just finished my final product, re: the tracking table, which I think looks a bit more organized than what I started off with. Another html hole, which is why I'm still up at 3 A.M. my time here. *sigh* I really need to have more respect for proper sleep patterns. hehe It'll start making an appearance with future updates.

Hmm... a blue background, huh. I might have to come up with something. Though I might just keep the original card with unopened doors to mark with. I'll play by ear.

hehe I felt I needed a banner of some sort. At first, I just cropped the top off of the card, but I couldn't make the penguin tree work with it. But snowflakes on a blue background seemed like a simple enough graphic. And I really, really wanted to include the holiday penguin tree somewhere. I was being really stubborn about that.

I applaud your stubbornness. :)

And good point about using the original card - I keep forgetting (probably as a coping mechanism so I don't dwell on how many hours I lost), that the active card isn't actually a single image, but many layers of them. And buckets of CSS. Yeah, just use the card you have and keep MM's blue sweater. ::grin::

I love this so much. All of it. Penni, Monkey, your banner (especially the penguins!), the way your card looks. I'd say it was time well spent! :D

Hehe Thank you! I'm glad you approve! I've been trying to find a way to re-incorporate Penni and Monkey once again since last year's BL-opoly and they were such a hit. While we probably won't get a lot of regular story-like updates this time, at least they're part of the scene again! =D

Honest truth, I'm actually quite satisfied with myself right now after spending all those hours in what MbD dubbed "a html hole." In contrast, the markers were a much faster ordeal once I had my idea and figured out how Paint 3D worked. The html was another story since I'm still learning how to play around with tables.

I'm so happy to see Monkey and Penni back, and I especially love Monkey's elf hat. And I think I might have squeeee'd out loud a little over your penguin tree. whoops.

hehe! I squee'd at the penguin tree, too! lol And then I said to myself, "I must use this penguin tree. I must!" So the banner was born! lol
*Such* a beautful and creative update post! Welcome back Peek-a-boo Penni Claus and Magnetic Elfin Monkey! And that penguin Christmas tree is too cute for words.
