A Joe G and Friends Wacky Holiday Treat
« on: November 01, 2016, 09:31:57 AM »
So once again this year Iíll be sending out a Holiday Greeting, and Iíve roped in two of the finest artistís working on Wackys today to lend a hand.  Both the great Mark Parisi and my good friend and long time collaborator Paul Harris have submitted art to make this yearís Holiday Treat truly great!  With their help, the Holiday Treat has been expanded into a mini Parody Postcard set.  If anyone wants a set, just pm me by Nov 30 with 'Holiday Treat 2016' in the subject line, send me your current mailing address and thatís it, a Holiday Treat postcard set will be yours in time for the Holidays.

Also like last year, there will be a Toy Surpriser available that brings a Wacky to life.  These are very limited and will be on a first come, first served basis.  Sorry about that, but they're kinda a pain to do and I can only make so many.  If you want one, itís $20 to cover materials and shipping and you'll have to contact me by Nov 15th, so I have time to make them up.  Just pm me like above, but put ĎHoliday Treat 2016 - Toy Surpriseí in the subject line and Iíll send you my paypal info. 

Iím so glad to be able to do this once again and I canít thank Mark and Paul enough for joining in on the fun.  All mailings will go out the first week of December so everyone should get them in plenty of time for the Holidays.

Tom, my pleasure!  Should be a fun mini-set and we can't let an entire year go by without a few parody postcards!

I've started to get a number of replies and what I'm going to do is keep track of everyone but wait until Nov 16 to write back.  That way I can confirm both the postcard sets and Toy Surprise requests.  So for those that want the Toy, I'll send PayPal info at that point.

Paul is being too modest.  He's doing a ton to see Holiday Treat come to life and it wouldn't have happened without him!

In terms of everyone's messages.  I will be answering them all on the 16th to confirm both Toy and Postcard set requests.

So I just spent all morning sending out confirmations.  At this point everyone should have received one.  If you didn't, please PM and I will reply today. 

Also I have received the final art from Mark and Paul and the mini-Postcard Set is super fun!  I know it will give you a smile this Holiday Season!  Everything is on track for mailing all Treats the first week in December, so it will be a nice way to start off the Holiday Season!

OK, so it was a bit of an undertaking but all the Holiday Treats have gone out!  I suspect some people will be receiving them by mid-week.  Hope everyone enjoys them and once again I gotta give kudos to Mark Parisi and Paul Harris for lending a hand.
