08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate it!  I hope your holiday's full of good cheer.

And Merry Christmas to my poor little sister who is stranded in Houston tonight.  Her flight today got cancelled last minute. and she's all by her lonesome in a hotel out there.   Get some rest tonight.  And I'll see you tomorrow morning!  :hug:
