|Ponies: I haz them|
In May I made my non-Pony Con debut, as a guest at Anime North in Toronto giving two panels on MLP. It was there that I learned of the extent of the Brony community (Ponies are cool? When did that happen?) I was shocked at the number of people who attended my panels and who seemed genuinely interested in learning about customizing and collecting.

In December I participated in the largest online swap I've ever done: the MLPArena Advent Swap 2011. I had an amazing time shopping for my partner and I was totally spoiled by the swapper who bought for me. I have some amazing new things in my collection that I probably wouldn't have had for ages yet if it hadn't been for this swap. I can't wait to do it again next year.
