    Hi everyone! My name is Safflower! I am mainly G1 collector. Some of you may know me from the Arena :)

    I attend school (though not right now because of summer) and enjoy drawing things, especially ponies. I live in California as well.

    I never really had a collection as a wee child, but I did have McDonalds ponies and a DVD of Twinkle Wish Adventure that I watched quite a bit. I got a bit older, FiM happened, and I was part of the FiM fandom for a bit. My mom and I went to an antique shop one day and I found a basket full of overpriced G1s, and I was intrigued. I bought the three that were in best condition: Magic Star, DJ, and a blue Baby Ember. I cleaned them up and proceeded to research G1, becoming slightly obsessed! I have a pretty big collection now, almost all of it from local sales over the 2 years I have been collecting. My all time favorite pony is Sternenglanz!

    I look forward to being here and having fun! Nice to meet you all :D

    Welcome to the herd, Safflower! We're not the biggest board, but I daresay we're the friendliest!

    Your avie is adorable! Is that some of your art?
