Sneak Previews - Palpatine's Office Diorama

Yesterday I teased you but today you get to see ALL of Palpatine's Office Diorama. :) It's all in Niubniub's Sneak Previews section so check it out :) and for an emty room with no furniture it looks so sweet - hee hee. Painting took me 2 days, so there are only 17 NEW pictures. Check them out on the bottom on page Pages 19 and on Page 20. I am REALLY happy with the result so far. And for a room that I thought was going to be boring to make, I am surprised to see how much fun I am having :)


Where's Niubniub? Human error = MORE prizes :)

After last weeks drawing, I was made aware that some names were omitted from the congratulations list. Doing a double check, I noticed that a block of 5 names had been skipped while scrolling for the copy/pasting process. Therefore the total participants were 119 not 114. Yes it was human error, but if I placed myself in their shoes, I would be dissapointed also. So in all fairness, I decided to hold another drawing so that EVERYONE has a fair chance of winning. In order not to penalise the previous winners, I have decided to give away 2 sets of each prize. I asked Philip Wise from Rebelscum to send me 5 NEW numbers ranging 1 to 119. And the 10 winners are...


DVD Tuesday - Time to go shopping :)

I am sure many of you will be going to buy LORD OF THE RINGS today during your lunch hour :) this is a great day for releases including STAR TREK II Director's cut special edition and SIMPSONS SEASON 2. I am also going to see Austin Powers tonight. i will let you know what i thought along with *yawn* Signs tomorrow.

What's up in Niubniub land?

Is it just me, or is it insanely HOT and HUMID this summer :( I'm sorry I didn't update sooner. I have been way too busy at work to do anything else. 3 coworkers are sick and 6 on Vacation...dosn't help sustain normal working hours. :P I had to do overtime all last weekend so I couldn't even start my Palps furniture. Not to mention other sections on the site. I hope things get back to normal soon. I will update as soon as I get 3-4 extra free hours to spare. Real world and websites don't mix very well - LOL I know you all understand.


August 20, 2002 - TUESDAY

Finally...An update and a Sneak Preview to boot :)

Boy am I looking forwards to having everybody back from Vacation - LOL. I had to work Saturday again (63 hours last week) but did have Sunday off and took the opportunity to work on Palpatine's Office Diorama. :)

Today I present 2 more pages in Niubniub's Sneak Previews section. Should I tell you what it is or do you want asurprise? Heh heh. Ok, since I made you wait so long for an update I will let you be surprised when you see the 24 NEW pictures. Simply click Pages 21 and Page 22. I hope you enjoy the result of my Sunday labour :)
