I didn't want this to coincide with the TP's Valentine's Day raffle, but I got one of the prizes tonight, so I decided to go ahead and post it.

As some of you probably know, I'm going to be moving back into my parents house near the end of March. Two years ago, I moved out and moved into my own place, though I was still in the same tralior park as my parents. I know that wasn't the brightest thing that I could have did, but at the same time, I'm glad I did, because I enjoyed the experience. Real freedom for the first time in my life. I enjoyed it greatly and it even helped with my first ever experience which I know Gypsydancer knows of, and maybe a few others, one that I believe I'll be having again.

Unfortunately, things turned sour for me, as I wasn't making enough money to pay the bills and have some leftover. Back during that summer, I had to sell some of my collection to help pay the bills. Over the course of the two years, I was basically living paycheck to paycheck, and I swore to myself that I would never do that. Well, then my mom offered to let me move back in.. I gotta pay them something a month, but it's certainly cheaper than living on my own and I can get my finances back together again.

During that time, I've whined, complained, and ranted (like my rant about my plumbing), and during that time, you guys have been good friends to me. You haven't told me that I wasn't smart to do what I did (like my best friend did, but I still love her.. she still checked on me when she knew how upset I was those few weeks ago). You guys listened to me, offered advice, and gave me a shoulder. Most people wouldn't do that and I want to thank everyone by holding a raffle.

First off, I want to thank Gypsydancer for brainstorming with me to come up with this. For this raffle, you can't just say you want to enter. Since this is about me moving back in with my parents, I would like you guys to post a pic of the ponies' moving day. I want you guys to get creative with this one, but the pics can't be altered in any way. Come on, use those creative minds we all know you guys have!

Here's what you can win:

First prize will get a gift card which can be used for pony things or not. Totally up to you guys. The place will be kept secret, though, however the loctaion will be online since we've got people from other countries here. :tongue2:

Second prize will get a choice. You can either choose a random item from the Newborn Cuties line (which I just got tonight, so no saying what you want :p) and for those of you that either don't like them, don't want one, or already have most everything that came out already (remember, I live in the backwater of Pennsylvania and we don't get a lot of new stuff as quickly as other places do), you can get a simple drawing done by Gypsydancer (Thanks to her for offering this. That was awesome of her).

Third prize is a dig through Dru's trade box! Thanks Dru.

Just post your pics up here. You guys have until the 15th, so that my drawing won't interfere with the Valentines's day raffle drawing. The drawing will be done with random.org. I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!

And yes, I meant, no altering, speech bubbles, etc. It all has to be natural, so to speak. Look down to NapperCasper's entry.. it's exactly the kind of thing I was looking for, moving to a new place.

This is a really cute idea. When I moved the past 2 times it was funny with my ponies. I was so worried! First round was my car filled to the ceiling and trunk along with a truck full of my ponies. The next trip took one of those mid sized moving trucks. It was a company called U-haul. That was a laugh in its self because just 1 truck load was nothing but my pony collection. I don't think I got any pics though of the moving process. I wonder if I still have pics of my collection size though. Would that count?

Maybe I should clarify that. :p What I meant was that the ponies were moving, not you moving the ponies. Like, say for example they're moving from Dream Castle to Paradise Estate. I want a scene like you would see in the cartoon or something. Hope that helps better.

What do you mean by the photo can't be altered? Does that mean I can't crop or resize it?

Hi

Please if you like, add the "Dig through Drusilla's trade boxes" so another person can win something.

Here is an example of some moving items, these are actually my trade boxes that the winner can dig through.

So post a pic of them moving to another shelf. :) I think that counts.

Drusilla, my pony clean/trade pile is starting to look like your pile....mostly to clean right now, lol.

Ah, that makes sense now. I think I can come up with something. I don't know why I keep thinking of a pic fic of a pony getting trapped in a box and the other tangled in tape.... I'm come up with something.

You don't have to have a building do you? Could it be something like the ponies packing themselves into a box to be stored or being moved to a new shelf?

It's ok if you don't have buildings, I was just using it as an example since apparently people were getting confused. And to answer your question, Moonrabbit, I kinda would like a picture only because I want to see how creative people can get, and it took me a while to think of something, so I kinda want people to follow it.. sorry.

Oh, ok. I guess I will have to sit this one out then. :(. Hopefully I can afford a camera soon.
