As many of you know, I have spent the last several weeks trying to learn a new system.

I was going to call it a HUD, but it’s really so much more than that.

The Artiste is a suite of products to help you, as a performer, do more.

Is it easy?

No.

Is it fast?

No.

Is it rewarding?

YES!!!!!

For me, this is a trailblazing product.  With the tools provided in the Artiste suite of products, I now have so many more creative options at my disposal.

Things that, previously, I would have had to either purchase, beg, borrow, steal, or sleep with a scripter to get.  😛

I have spent the few weeks on a roller coaster – up when I was successful at something, and down again when things didn’t go right.

Sometimes the downs weren’t my fault, most times they were.

I persevered.  Pure stubbornness.  Refusal to give up.

Sometimes I would have to walk away.

But I always came back.

After finally completing a routine, I am so excited about the many tools I still have left to learn.

What I accomplished may not seem like much to some.  I am so proud of this routine – because when I watch it, I see all the successes and failures, and how much I learned along the way.

Plus, I finally get to use these ADORABLE gingerbread avatars I got from the MadPea Scrumptious Sweets hunt.  (Created by Chandra Meehan at deviousMind – the hunt is still on, so head over there and pick them up yourself.  The HUD is $100L, but well worth the price, for these avatars alone!)

I hope you enjoy this little holiday routine as much as I do.

It’s Cold Outside

Merry Christmas!
