Definitely a lovely shade, to say the least.
I have gone nowhere on my progress, since I've been thinking my way along of what to do. And busy. And stressed. Definitely stressed.
Hmm we could do with some livening up in here. How about a few exact hex pony giveaways? I have a pile of them on the Mosaic account, I need to shift some! Let's say 2 questions per day (could be at any times), first to get the right answer gets a choice of any of the ponies marked 'PRIZE'.
If you get the correct answer, then you must wait out two more questions before you can post to win another pony. OK? I'll send round a PM and think up some questions, and we'll start in a little while.
ooo i am in i will try and keep up
Exact Hex Pony Giveaway Event!
Question 1: Which gemstone represents kingship and majesty?
My decision on the correct answer is final. Post in thread! There will be another question at a later time today.
The Amethyst represents the royal priesthood, kingship and majesty.
Absolutely correct, Cat! Congratulations, you've won yourself the pick of one of the PRIZE marked ponies in the Mosaic first enclosure. Which one would you like? I forgot to go put them all on 0 bid. Doh.
Heh, I knew that since Amethyst happens to be my birthstone ^^ May I have that double gray valky girl, please? [Sally]
Thank you very much for hosting this!
Sure, no problem, go bid 0 on her, I updated them all (I hope!). You're most welcome.
Another question will be posted later on today.
Question 2: Red Roses mean romantic love in the language of flowers, but what does the Iris mean?
I think its friendship like: Your Friendship Means So Much to Me; Faith; Hope; Wisdom and Valor; My Compliments. Well thats what I found
Quote Secret Blaze:
That's right! You've won a pony of your choice from here, any of the ones marked PRIZE:
Just bid 0! Congratz.
"Through its intricate history, the meanings of the iris has come to include faith, hope, and wisdom. Depending on factors such as color and region, irises may bear additional meanings as well. In some parts of the world, the dark blue or purple iris can denote royalty, whereas the yellow iris can be a symbol of passion. Irises may also express courage and admiration."
Oops a little late.
Congratulations Secret Blaze!
Oh! So close! Have to be quicker next time, hun!
That I do. Just gives me an added reason to stalk the thread more.
There's a steam train that needs saving, too, if you fancy that!
YES! Festival things kept me away I'm afraid. So ready to actually jump in now though.
I bidded on the valkyrie thank you so much! Sorry I'm late replying I was called for dinner
Congrats Secret Blaze and awesome contest MM this sounds like tons of fun
*keeps hawk eyes on thread*
Question 3: In the chocolate-making process, what are 'nibs'?
The cacao bean, when the husk has been removed after roasting.
And we have another winner! Congratulations PoisonedPromise, please select one of the remaining PRIZE ponies.
Oooh, lovelies! I am going to bid on Basilisk, she calls to me the most. I don't have enough MerDs.
A good choice, and she is high-levelled as well.
Awesome! I need to get back into contesting my ponies, I am so bad about it.
Question 4: Name one use for silver plating.
Whoo right answer! Off you pop to the Mosaic enclosure, go find a pony you like!
Whoo! >w< I'm just lucky that I finally logged on when I did. XD;;
I'll have to take that Earthie girl - I don't have enough highlighters. Thankyou! ^__^;;
