My plan for early 2015

Once again, happy new year, everyone! 😀 I found a link with some amazing pictures of fireworks from Sydney, Australia:


It’s been a while since I last wrote anything about Candy Candy. But first of all, I appreciate all of you for sending your enthusiastic feedback to my latest drawings around Christmas time. Your positive comments have certainly motivated me to draw more in the new year.

Nonetheless, I know some of you prefer reading my thoughts about Candy, Albert and Terry, or my perspectives of the manga and/or Candy Candy Final Story. On the other hand, more than one of you have asked me to write stories again. I do have some new ideas, but they are original (inspired by Candy Candy but not fanfics). Besides, once I begin, I will be quieter on my blog or draw less, so I can’t decide. 😛

Therefore, I’d like to hear from you. Please let me know your preference by writing to me. I don’t promise anything though… 😆

Talking about that, I have met some new friends here on my blog last year. Nice to meet you here! 🙂 For those of you who aren’t familiar with leaving a comment on my blog, you can provide a name (any name you like) and an email address. Alternatively, you can simply log in using your existing Facebook or Twitter account. Once your comment has been approved, your subsequent comments with the same email address or account will be automatically approved. Hence, you don’t need to wait for me to approve every single one of your comments. The system can also track how many comments you have entered so far. Who knows? Perhaps you will be the most active commenter at the end of 2015? 😉

I have received more than a handful of Christmas or New Year presents as shown below. If you want to see the bigger versions, you can click on the thumbnails or view them on my Facebook page. Thank you, lovely ladies, for your thoughtfulness! ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Not only that, my dear friend Antlay gave me a wonderful surprise for the new year! She translated the first chapter of “It must have been love” to French for me. I hadn’t expected this at all, and needless to say, I was immensely touched and rendered speechless by her generous gift. Dear Antlay, I really can’t express my gratitude enough!!!

While I was still in shock reading her words, a particular scene of that chapter flashed across my mind. Right away an image materialized in my head. Thus, I have decided to draw that and publish it together with the chapter. Hopefully it won’t take me too long to get that done. 🙄

Anyway, it’s going to be a busy year to me because I have taken two new challenges in real life. Yet, I will strive my best to keep this blog alive, and remember, your comments are the fuel that keeps me moving forward. Thank you very much, my friends, for your continued support! Have a blessed new year!

    Dear Ms Puddle,

    I don’t visit your blog as much as I used to, But when I do, I love reading your comments and looking at your drawings. You’re doing a great job!
    To be honest, I would love to read another story written by you. Of course it’s up to you whether or not you write another story.

    1. Just logging on and found your comments, dear CKati! Don’t worry about not visiting as frequently as before, and I’m already happy you drop by from time to time!

      As I told some of you, I actually have a story in mind, but it’s alternate universe. Besides, I need lots of time and energy if I do start writing a story, so I’m not sure at this point. Nonetheless, thank you so much for your interest and support, my friend! 🙂

        Don’t worry about it, no pressure. I know how much time and effort you put in LNF. Which was wonderful for us, but I can imagine that you don’t want to start something like that again.
        If you decide to write something though, alternate universe will be just fine as long as you have Candy and Albert in it ;-))

        1. Thank you very much for your understanding, CKati!! You’re so kind, and my urge to write is lurking somewhere inside me indeed. Who knows? Perhaps one day I’ll start writing again 😉 😛

    Bonjour Ms Puddle

    Je rejoins ce que vient d ‘écrire Agnès. Tout comme elle j’aime vos dessins, ils sont fantastiques, vos histoires incroyables, ” The Diary ” est à mon sens l’histoire qui complète l’oeuvre de MIZUKI (CCFS).
    Personnellement j’ai toujours préféré Albert, je pense qu’il était destiné à Candy. Le fait de traduire vos histoires permettra aux fans qui comprennent la langue française de pouvoir profiter de vos histoires et de comprendre la relation entre Candy et Albert.
    Vos pensées sur votre blog, nous permettent de mieux comprendre leur relation et de décoder CCFS.
    Alors que vous dire, difficile de faire un choix. C’est à vous seule qu’il appartient de faire un choix. Ne pas faire comme MIZUK, ne pas laisser vos fans décider pour vous, pour n’avoir aucun regret.
    Que vos voeux et vous rêves se realisent !

    1. Bonsoir Antlay!!

      Merci beaucoup! Thanks for your kind words about my drawings and stories. I’m flattered indeed… blushing even harder now. You’re so right, I should probably decide on my own what I want to do instead. No regrets, right? I will keep this in mind. 🙂
      Dear Antlay, don’t be too modest, you know a lot about CCFS yourself too! 🙂 However, I like to share my thoughts too such that we can discuss and talk about different clues concerning Anohito 😉

      Hugs and kisses!

    Dear Ms Puddle,

    At first, I hope you will succeed on your new challenges.

    About your blog, undoubtedly it’s a big and a great job: interesting posts, I’ve learnt a lot ; stunning drawings, the most beautiful I’ve seen so far, but my preference is definitely your amazing stories which I’m completely fond! 😉 Anyway, each thing is a gift for us, so it’s up to you to decide and to do what you can! 🙂

    What such a good idea to translate an other story than “The diary” in French. Thanks Antlay, I’m sure that many french fans would appreciate a lot to read it. 😀

    Big hugs! <3

    1. Bonjour, dear Agnes!
      Thank you for your extremely encouraging words, and there are a lot of artists out there who draw marvelous fanarts related to Candy Candy. I’m just one of them, and I must say every one of us has his or her personal style and preferences, but thank you so much for your compliments. I’m now blushing 😉
      Thanks for your understanding, and it takes me a lot of time to maintain the blog, but I definitely enjoy doing it so far. Of course, supporting Candy Candy fans like you have kept me motivated! Thank you once again, and big hugs from me too! 😀

  1. Hola Ms Puddle’s Haven! Antes que nada espero que este nuevo año que comienza sea muy bueno y este lleno de sorpresas agradables y positivas para todos! En lo personal, a mi me gusta mucho leer sobre Candy y Alberth y todo lo referente al manga y CCFH pero, también entiendo que hay quiénes prefieran las otras historias, así que lo que escribas esta bien nosotros seguiremos apoyandote en lo que decidas hacer. Y si, yo soy una de las personas que aprendió a postear comentarios aqui gracias a ti, aunque bueno todavía me faltan otras cosas por aprender (como poner los emoticons y caritas). En lo que respecta a tu página, me da mucho gusto ver cómo sigue creciendo y que gente bella te apoye incondicionalmente, eso es muestra de que realmente les gusta tu trabajo y aprecian el talento que tienes para todo lo que haces por este espacio (Lo cual no debe ser nada fácil si tomamos en cuenta todas tus actividades personales diarias). Ojalá que todos los proyectos que tengas para éste año se realicen en cualquier aspecto de tu vida y que mas personas te conozcan para seguir creciendo juntos día con día. Gracias por todo, que nuestro creador te guíe, te cuide, te ilumine y te proteja siempre…

    1. Hola Carolina!! Feliz año nuevo y un excelente 2015!!

      Thank you so much for your kind words and warm wishes, and yes, I’m tremendously touched by all the thoughtful gifts from these lovely ladies. I have no more words to express my gratitude and happiness. I feel loved, and this is such a great start of the new year! 😀

      I will keep writing about the manga and CCFS, Carolina. Don’t worry. 😉 Thank you for writing to me, my dear, and may all your wishes come true in 2015! Hugs and kisses!
