Are highly intelligent or very talented people better able to hide their misery from loved ones, thus making it all the harder to “read” them and help them?

New dA Meme Idea!

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 22, 2014, 7:06 PM

Know what would be really cool and a nice way to say thank you to your watchers? If everyone on dA went through their watcher's list and drew a present for their very first watcher. So I'm going to draw something for Keijukuningatar. What would you like? You can send me a note with the details.

Oh and tag, all you are it! Send me a link if you do this meme so I can see your wonderful arts.

volunteers? + about wishlists,secret santa etc...

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 23, 2014, 10:21 AM
Hey there~! again more updates, one of them is particularly important to those that wanted to participate in the secret santa.

Firstly, I am in need of volunteers to help me organize some things. Though i will be doing most of it, it is impossible to manage now 170+ members and 20+ notes, along with school and art. So im searching for people who are ACTIVE on dA for: 

-noting the participants with the people who they will draw for and their wishlist. *ex: you note person 1 that they are paired with person 2 and give them a link to person 2's wishlist

-managing all exchange art that will be happening from the 25th of october to the 30th. 

-replying to general questions or linking people to certain journals, faqs, .... if you want to help me with any of these things please note me! <33

all volunteers that do work and help me with this project will have an immediate spot for the secret christmas exchange, that is if they want to participate of course. 

which leads me to my next update, the christmas exchange. 

a maximum of 100 people will be able to enter the public opening for the secret exchange. the rest of participants are invite only. 

Due to so much negative feedback, I just don't get why i should waste time on trying to please people that only complain. 
So the secret santa shall be a semi private one. 

And yes, they will enter based on quality. And if you did not complete all the rules for THIS secret exchange then you cannot join or try to enter the secret santa. 


your wishlists are due in 4 days. and they can only be in a journal form or in a STA.SH FILE. i cannot accept notes or comments for wishlists. 

Again, no exeptions for these deadlines. You are disqualified if you do not submit your wishlist in time  you cannot enter any other exchanges made by me. 

you can note me or :iconsecret-exchange-2014: with your wishlist. there has to be links to images of your characters btw, i can't accept a journal with "i want princess peach" as a wishlist if you don't add any images.

Monday Muses

Welcome to our activity on Mondays - Monday Muses!

It's all about the artists and artworks that inspire you! :painter:

There are many ways someone can be an inspiration. By displaying inspiring community spirit, or providing helpful resources for example. Or maybe you just stumbled over an amazing artwork that simply knocked you off your feet and inspired you to make something of your own right away. No matter what it is, we want you to share it!

Simply pick an artist or deviation you find inspiring in some way, and post them in a comment on this journal. Please also include why you chose that artist or artwork. Your suggestions will be featured next week! :heart:

If you want the feature to be a surprise for the deviant(s) you suggested, please leave away the '@' or :dev: when typing the username (and post links to artworks instead of thumbs), that way your Muses won't be notified of your comment here through the mentions system.

Also feel free to post this wonderful stamp the awesome a-neverending made on the profile pages of your Muses once the feature is published:

Give a stamp! - You are my MondayMuse by a-neverending

This week's Muses are:

"Lately I was totally amazed by harrietsfriend photographs from '70s. He's got a huge collection of great street photographies from these days, and what is more amazing is that every picture is followed by a story. Really enjoyable, really inspiring. :) (Smile)"

Sunflowers At Dawn by CecilyAndreuArtwork

"Cecily is a very kind lady and friend with so beautyful flowers of summer like this."

~ Dieffi

:bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen: :iconuszatyarbuz: :bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen:
"Alesksandra is truly a wonderful and beautiful person, who is a genuinely completely thoughtfulness person. She surprised me with this lovely knowledge about her, before I knew her a little better, and now I am blessed to realized a couple of other things. I appreciate that she is very patient and understanding with me, and I also I just adore her photos, and recognize her amazing talent in Resources and CSS.  She's actually quite a multi-talented artist!
This is one delightful person to know! Heart

Here is just one of her many great works:
Painted feathers by UszatyArbuz"

:bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen: :iconsurrealistic-gloom: :bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen:

"Surglo is a good friend of mine on dA, for a very long time! She is patient, kind, and generous with me.
She is a very special person, and it is good for me to know her.  What I like about her art so much, is that she is not afraid to "step outside of the box".  She is creative and colourful, and her work is awesome!
Here is an example to share:

The light at the end of the path by surrealistic-gloom"

Hey Ben 10 fans, well I have officially posted the "Change Ben 10" petition and it is ready to be signed

Here is the link to it…

WARNING: This site will ask for an email address so if your not comfortable with giving away your email, you could do what I did and make a second email account so your primary email address doesn't get spam or boring email from one time sites

Spread the word about this petition! Tell your friends, post something about it on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Tumblr and any other sites as long as you can spread the word. If you agree with these changes or at least with some of them, sign the petition. Lets do this!!!!
I don't even know why I never did this earlier :iconsweatdropplz:

I am making this journal in order to raise the general awareness about Childhood Cancer.

Sadly, this seems to be an uprising problem, specifically in England, as each day 7 children die from childhood cancer. The problem is that, just because childhood cancer is more rare than cancer during adulthood, the National Cancer Institute devotes only a 4% from its founds in order to make research on it.

This is were we come in~
:bulletpurple:You can donate on one of those institutes:
~ www.theronanthompsonfoundation…

:bulletpurple:Join this group in order to find more info on Childhood Cancer PaintdAGold

:bulletpurple:Make a journal about it or post something similar on FB or Twitter using #BeBoldGoGold or use the icons which can be found in the group's gallery~:heart: ... (There is even a FB group ... Just saying :iconhurrrplz:)

That's all I wanted to say C:
