One of the games I play had a guild competition this week. A guild is just simply a group of people/players you’ve joined in the game and with whom you can chat. Well the game had a competition this week between the guilds. They’ve had a few others, so we kind of know what to expect.Well this one was a bit wonky! Some of our guild players opened the challenge and had hundreds, or in some cases, thousands of energy to play the competition, when normally you only get 120 charges of energy which allows you to play 6 times and then you have to wait for it to recharge or pay for some energy with gems. However gems are limited in the game, so they want you to pay real money to get more.
I was a bit jealous of those players that got thousands of energy charges. I asked questions and decided that I would not close down my game that night but did close my laptop, although I did not shut it off. I woke up the next morning and had 9220 energy charges!
Oh my goodness! I was so excited. And then I played and played and played and played and played . . . and I got really good at finding the objects hidden in the 6 locations of the competition . . . and then I got tired of playing those same locations so much. I realized that I do not ever want to have that much competition energy to use because the competition only lasts for 4 days.
That means that I was playing way more often than I normally do. It also means that I wasn’t really doing any of the other things I enjoy doing. At least I did take a break to get the Purk monotangle tile done for Wednesday.
I’ve been reading the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson and haven’t hardly read any pages at all since the competition started and I really miss it. I’ve also not gotten much of anything else done around here. I’m glad it ended last night. However, before it did, I got another 700 energy charges or more.
Sean made a quick trip to Virginia early this week. He stayed with our friends Paul and Stephanie. You may remember the art she and I did while they were here a couple months ago. (Copics, Embossing/Stamping, Distress Stains & Magicals)
Well, she was going through some of her art supplies and was going to get rid of some of them. Since Sean was there, she asked if I wanted any of them. Of course, I said I’d take whatever she wanted to send back with Sean.
After talking with her, I expected a few things. This is what she sent.
She also included some acrylic paint tubes and glittery watercolors, as well as some small and large tape rollers. Then there are the stamps and even a small die cut machine with a couple of dies. Not to mention the punches and stamp sets!
I’ll have to share the things I make using these supplies in the future. Oh, did I mention the copper embossing powder or VersaMark pad? Yep, she sent those too! I sure am blessed!
I hope you have a good weekend. We’ll be visiting with Brian, Lauren, and Liam for a bit this weekend. I’m looking forward to it.
Until next time, God bless,
