Guess what popped through my letterbox today - THIS:

http://www.celebrityhandprints.org/mall/productpage.cfm/CelebrityHandprints/_EWCH

Yes, I know £50 is a huge amount of money to spend on this - but it is going to charity so I don't feel too guilty. Also, I've decided not to buy that new winter coat I've been eyeing up, which cost a lot more than £50 - so you see, I've actually saved some money!! Aren't I good? :D Anyway, this means far more to me than some coat I know I'll be sick of next year!!

The first thing I did when I opened it was place my own hand against it to compare - Elijah's hand is almost exactly the same size as mine!! His thumb and little finger may be fractionally longer. The nice pic of him holding up his inky little paw comes with it too. I'm so glad I decided to get this - I did it really quickly, as soon as I read about it on TORN - I knew that if I spent too long thinking about I probably wouln't!!

Can't believe it's 1st Dec tomorrow. *PANICS* Why do I do this? Every single year without fail - I leave everything too late and then really, seriously panic. It always seems that one moment Christmas is ages away, then suddenly it's upon us.

In between my frenzied shopping I'm working on Chapter 12 of 'Journey' which I hope to post within the next few days:)

Awww, you got it today??

I just got word it's been posted to me...
and, like you I thought it was a bit extravagant, but, hey, it's Elijah's palm print,
and it's for charity!

MMMM!!

*happy hugses*

That's wonderful that you got it and it is for a good cause. :-) I decided that it was too expensive for me to buy, but I'm glad some of us got it. :-)

I know what you mean about leaving the holiday stuff to the last minute. That's how we operate too. . .

Every year I make a mental note to start much earlier the next year - but never do!!

inky little paw *g* Now that image is seriously adorable.

I really really wish I could get that - I know it hasn't actually touched his perfect skin, but still. But with roof replacement coming up, I can't justify the expense. :(

*envies you omg*

I can sympathise with that - we need to get something done about our garage roof which seriously leaks every time it rains - but we keep putting it off - we just don't want to know how much it's going to cost!!

I ordered it too!! And that was even BEFORE I got my new job. It was an impulse as soon as I saw it and the first thing I thought of was comparing my hand to his - just like you did!!

I got the email notification that mine has shipped but I don't have it yet - it'll take longer for me to get it here in the US.

I've only got 2 weeks before I start the new job - and I haven't started my cards yet for Christmas - I need to have a VERY productive next 2 weeks or I'm in BIG trouble!!

I'm so glad you got your handprint - can't wait till I can compare my hand to Elijah's!!

Oh great - so you'll be getting yours soon - I look forward to hearing how your hand compares to his. I knew he had quite small hands but I'd never have guessed they were as small as mine!!

I saw your post about the new job - it's still amongst my 'posts to be replied to' so I'll do it here instead:) I was so happy to hear your good news, it must be a great relief for you. I do hope you'll enjoy it and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you in two weeks time:)

Oh I'm glad you got it!! And giving up a coat for it makes perfect sense.

I'm not so happy that it doesn't let us actually see his lifeline!

I'm looking forward to more Journey!

I'm never really sure which one the lifeline is!!

Chapter 12 of 'Journey' is close to completion:)

EEE! How utterly cool is that??! You've got his inky little paw print! Perhaps you could do a scan of it at some point so the rest of us can have a closer look? We can all try our hands at being Elijah-Palm-Readers. :p

I will have a go at scanning it when I get a chance - but mother2012 informs me that his lifeline doesn't show. Still, I'm sure any palm readers out there can work on the rest of it:)

I'm glad you bought the print and love it. I thought about ordering it, too, but I've spent thousands of dollars on LOTR and Elijah stuff during the past five years. About six months ago, I finally learned to say, "No more!" to myself. *sigh*

I ordered it too...actually I had to have someone order it for me..I cut up all my cards to cut down on impulse buys..but since it is also a charity I made an exception. Hopefully mine will be arriving soon....

Can't wait to see my copy of the inky paw print...

My large debt load, college loans and gas prices must have warped my sense of $$$$$$..I thought it was quite reasonable....LOL...

Awww, you got one too? So did I and mine came yesterday :) Having it framed as a Christmas pressie.

As you say it is for charity so worth it even though it isn't the actual handprint. And yes, I placed my hand on his to compare sizes... Elijah's palm is about the same as mine although his fingers are a bit longer.

Yes, suddenly Christmas seems much closer! Looking forward to more of "Journey" :D

Lovely - I hope to get mine framed at some time:) So you have wee hands too!!

Christmas is getting very close - we did a load of shopping this morning but I still have lots to get.

Chapter 12 will be up very soon:)

Oh yes - I like that - that is how I shall think of it from now on:)

I know you're feeling really rough at the moment - I do hope you'll recover very soon:)

So happy you enjoyed the paw print! : D

You know, I hate Christmas. It's awful to say, but there is just so much hype and hurry and worry that goes along with it. It shouldn't be that way, should it?

What a gorgeous icon!! You know, I've always loved Christmas but just the other day I actually found myself wondering why - so much of it is just damned hard work!! You're quite right - it shouldn't be that way:)

I did just the same thing when I put the picture on my LJ ! *sigh* Not that it's the real thing of course. Could you please do me a favour ? Could you visit my LJ and tell me if the hand there is about the same size ? I think I need to enlarge it a bit, but not much.

Really looking forward to chapter 12.

The actual measurement from the tip of his middle finger to level with the lowest point of his palm is about 161/2cms so your pic needs to be longer. The width from the tip of his thumb to level with the tip of his little finger is about 151/2 cms - I think your pic was slightly wider than that. But presumably it would change with whatever screen resolution you use - I use 1024x768 so that's what these measurements are based on:)

Chapter 12 should be up very soon:)

I just checked out poplij's handprint and I really really hope there was a bit of a mix-up with how hard Elijah pressed down on the ink - because if not, the lad has a drastically short life line....:(

Well - according to mother2012, his life line is non-existent!! Or at least it's not showing up at all!! Yes, we must hope he didn't press down very hard:)
