Didn't get much artsy stuff this year from the family, but I did go buy a Planar Head on Ebay. Should arrive on the 2nd though. Oh and a new messenger bag for the Revelations trip.
Not a whole lot of physical gifts, but some folks gave to charities (as I had requested). Like: http://www.americanforests.org/ (there's a tree being planted in my name somewhere...)
I did get:
Banana Republic $100 gift card
IKEA $50 gift card
New hat and gloves (Revelations wear)
Found out that the "Blade Runner: 4-disc set" I thought was one of my b-day gifts was really for Christmas.
And a couple of different bottles of wine (we're wine drinkers in this house. Yummeeeee) and a bottle of champagne.
I did get for my SO and a friend's son (who is becoming quite the creative), bonsai trees. And a few others rec'd oil paintings and digi prints. Thought I should throw that in, too. Glad y'all have had a great holiday!
About a dozen shirts, which I desperately needed.
About two dozen underwear, which I desperately needed.
Couple pair of sweat pants.
Tissue and layout pads in different sizes.
About two dozen pens of different kinds.
A shiny new cooking timer that actually works.
A huge pile of pistachio nuts that I will probably make cookies from.
...and discovered that the little steel pin clips that they use to hold new folded shirts together now are perfect for making clay-working tools from if you just add a handle (they're spring steel and about 1/4" wide at the flat end and about 1-1/2" long.

I took part of my bonus and treated myself to a 40" 1080p LCD.
Best Buy gift card, used to purchase Planet Earth on Blu-Ray.
Also, I have it on good authority that some actual tamales are on their way from Texas. Seattle does not know tamales- it's harder to find than decent sushi in Texas.
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
