I am lucky enough to have two very special Kossacks interested in my paintings this year. Interested enough in fact, that each of them have expressed interest in owning one. Sara R and llbear have given tirelessly to this community. When Sara said she wanted my painting "Naptime" I was both honored and stunned. She is also working very hard to bring business to all of us in the Kos Katalogue, so I think if anyone deserves a gift from our Daily Kos Secret Santa, it's Sara R.

Then there is llbear. He is always there for us when needed. Last summer, when I was having such trouble with my blood work and diagnosis for multiple ailments, llbear stepped forward and called me just to talk one day while I was feeling pretty down. It takes a special person to offer time and advice to someone they have never met, and llbear was there for me, as I have seen him step up for so many others here at the Daily Kos. He wants a painting for a new room he designed with a Polynesian theme that goes with the Tiki Bar he had installed indoors there. And if llbear needs a painting from the Daily Kos Secret Santa, I think he should have one.

So please follow me beyond the fold to see how you can help get these two a little something special for the holidays from all of us this year...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
