Tomorrow is my birthday!I have a double standard about birthdays: I enjoy congratulating others, thinking about the perfect gift and those small thoughtful details, baking a cake, spoiling the birthday boy or girl, and such. However, I'm not excited about my own birthdays, I'm very shy and introverted so being the center of attention is actually overwhelming for me. I haven't had a birthday celebration in 12 years, and not by my making because it was a surprise party planned by friends. My ideal birthday is simply spending the day doing my usual things, like nothing is different about that day... I'm very lucky to have found true friends that understand and respect this, who don't make a huge deal about it and simply congratulate me from the bottom of their hearts. In the past, I felt that offering to throw me a party was more about them than me.
However, this is my first birthday as a married woman and I feel something happy and giggly growing inside me. I'm eager for waking up tomorrow in his arms, and bein
Back... again!Lately whenever I think things are settling down, stuff stirs up around me again. I try to enjoy it whenever possible and keep in mind that such is life I'm really sorry I went MIA again for a week, I'll try to keep it down to a minimum from now on... I couldn't do much last week, Oka was told he needed to attend a congress and got sent without much time to plan, and I tagged along we tried to take it as a mini vacation, but we didn't have internet all week and that was very scary for me ._.
I'm doing my first con on October 5th, I'm trying to prepare some stock and do displays. If you live in Puebla (Mexico) or close to it, please come see me! More news about it soon.If you were following my 30 days of polymer clay basics on YouTube I'm really sorry I interrupted it I really wanted to keep it going daily, but life got in the middle. I will try to resume it after the con.
Oka and I FINALLY got the house we wanted! I'm so glad we're done looking for a hou
^maytel is having a BOYA couple of months ago I announced* that ^maytel was pregnant with her second baby penguin, a few weeks ago she learned that she's having a boy, AGAIN. Please join me and congratulate her for this great occasion, she was told she wouldn't be able to conceive again but here she is proving that SCIENCE IS WRONG. (I have no idea why I'm saying that, I'm a scientist in real life).
She's also having a serious case of baby-brains, so don't mind her if she starts doing crazy silly things. Actually it's really fun to talk to her because she gets easily confused, I would be afraid that she would kill me for saying that but I know she won't remember it
She just told me this is her right now:
She's forgiven of everything and anything because she makes the cutest babies ever. Also, I just found an article that claims that baby brain makes you a better mother (your brain focuses on your baby's needs and so), so this proves once again that she's super mom!
Pro-Animal CraftsToday I felt like making a feature with crafts that donate to animal charities, that search to raise animal welfare awareness and other noble causes. Some of these pieces are for sell and the profits will be donated to shelters and animal charities, so if you find anything interesting don't hesitate to buy it, it's for a good cause. I hope you'll enjoy it!

I'm now a married womanI got married three weeks ago to the man that has been the love of my life for the past 10 years (we met young). This past three weeks have been a bliss and a joy, despite all the cleaning, moving, planning and decisions that we've had to make. I'm finally getting used to my new life, the cleaning and moving is mostly done (for now at least) so I have a bit more free time I've really missed reading your comments and watching new awesome crafts, so I'll begin uploading again I also miss making craft features, my dear ^maytel published the latest Crafts Newsletter so check it out
In my last post I mentioned that we had found a house that we really liked, but we lost it the current owners decided that they didn't want to sell it after all. Sadly this is the second time that it happens, apparently no one wants to sell us their houses ¬¬ so we're back on house hunting, hopefully the third time will be the charm and this one will be
So behindI get married in less than two weeks, my online life has been close to non existent lately. I'm really sorry for all the notes and message piling up, I'm going to try and answer as many as I can tomorrow. Commissions and my stores are still open, any commission or purchase would help me a lot right now
We just found a really awesome house and I think this is the one! It's completely opposite to the previous house that we liked and lost. Wish us good luck with this house, it's completely empty so we will need to buy every single piece of furniture, except for the toilet and sink XD seriously, that's all the house has! At least we will be able to get exactly what we want, but we will need to purchase a lot of things. Any commission or purchase would help us a great deal.
Also, I saw Pacific Rim yesterday and I LOVED IT! I wasn't sure if I would like it (it seemed like a mash up of Evangelion with every other mecha story) but I really enjoyed it and it surprised me greatly. Have you gu
More cats, getting married and store newsQuick store update: My post office raised their prices, so I need to raise my shipping prices a bit too. Starting next week my shipping price will go up $1 or $1.50 dollars, I will keep the old price of $4.50 this week as a special promotion I try to keep my price as low as possible considering that it includes shipping, tracking number, packing supplies (bubble envelope, bubble wrap, baggies, etc), and even the costs of travelling to the post office. $5.50-$6 reasonable for world wide shipping?
I can't believe I'm getting married in less than three weeks ._. I've been waiting for this moment for so long, and now it seems like it's too soon. I still have a million things to do, plan, prepare, and move. We had found our dream house, but the current owners decided that they want to stay there on the very last second, so we're back to house hunting. It's exhausting and a bit dissapointing after loosing our dream house, I can't help but think "the other house was better" all the time.

Why many artists suck at marketingWell. I can at least say that the average artist's mentality towards marketing never ceases to amaze me.
Either the guys here are young and naive --that's what I hope it is, since still being pure hearted in a time like this is good-- or they are willingly unaware of what's happening around them.
It all started with a question that came to my mind.
Would people be willing to pay a few point in exchange for a feature on a busy page?
How I got to the idea?
Well, I'm doing contests and giveaways now and then. Things for the community, you'd say. To get some feedback, feature stuff, promoting unknown artists, and that kind of stuff. In order to host those contests and giveaways I often need DeviantArt points. Now, I do get a lot of them by sheer donation. But that always seemed a bit empty to me. So I thought up some kind of idea. To give beginning artists the chance to get featured, and make use of the traffic on my page, in order to get their work viewed by people all over the website. S
