Lumberjack FlannelghanI am working on my brother-in-law's afghan. The pattern is called the Lumberjack Flannelghan. It's a fairly easy pattern, but I recommend being very familiar with double crochet before you try it. I don't know that it was written with novices in mind, even though it's a really good First Afghan project. :lLumberjack Flannelghan11 months ago in Personal More Like This
He bought the yarn for it (6 One Pound skeins of Caron at $8.99 each) a little over a year ago, and I have been working on it off and on since. At first I was like this is a kind of boring pattern, so I worked on it only once in a while. Now I am ashamed to say that it's been over a year since I started this and I'm still not done with it. :iconimsorryplz:
Although I have made some serious progress on it in the last week. His birthday is February 11th, so I am hoping against hope to have it ready by then.
It is made in 5 strips, each strip is 7 blocks measuring 10"x10". I have made 3 full strips and am on the second
Sooraya Qadir CosplayI still need to get better yellow gloves, these ones are more off-white than yellow. I am also waiting on a better niqab, and I need a nicer black shirt, but I suspect I can find plain black sweatshirts well enough, its finding a summer option that's going to be annoying.Sooraya Qadir Cosplay1 year ago in Personal More Like This

If anyone submitted works that expired, please resubmit.
With no mods, I'm afraid that there's no backup for when something happens to me.
If anyone feels they can check in on a regular basis, feel free to apply.
I'm going through the folders to get it all cleaned up now, and hopefully we can get back on track!
Don't forget.. to validate your novel!Don't forget1 year ago in Personal More Like This
That's right, Validation is now live! To get to the validation page, you can hover over the 'My NaNoWriMo link across the top of the page and select Validate, or you can go to your novel editing page and you should see the validation link in big blue letters!
In order to win, you MUST run your novel through the validator. Otherwise your bar will remain blue and you wont count as an official winner.
I would advise everyone to try and validate early for two reasons:
1) There are ALWAYS discrepancies between Writing programs and the Validatos, so if Word thinks you have reached 50k, the validator may not agree.
2) Lots of people will be validating and sometimes this can lead to the website crashing. Do it early to make sure you can access the website!

Kami-Con!Yay!Kami-Con!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The fine people at Kami-Con finally allowed people to buy tables at their Artists' Alley and I jumped on that the minute I saw it. This will be our third Kami-Con and I have to say I'm looking forward to it. Ever since we started doing conventions, this one has stood out as low-stress, high fun, and yes - good profits. Because we don't need to get a hotel room, our profits are even better than at AWA!
I noticed that this year they'll be collecting Birmingham city sales tax at the convention rather than letting the artists submit it on their own. It surprised me, but it's not a big deal; it's probably something Birmingham requires them to do. Whatevs, I just need to remember to bring my checkbook with me - I would feel uneasy about handing them a wad of cash, for some reason.
Oh, I am so relieved! I just need to fill out the contract and send it in. And pay for the table, of course. So wonderful!
And now I need to turn to the ugly specter of Production and get some stuff ready to s

Scattered thoughtsWell the end of the year is rolling in like a fierce work-lion for me, both at home and at my paying jobs.Scattered thoughts1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Firstly my three part time jobs in the Geo department. For one I need to process five new rock samples (once they come in) as well as my current batch of several (hard work), For the collections job, I have hundreds of invertebrate specimen cards to check with the database (tedious work). Lastly, the museum is in re-assembly stage and I am having to paint some casts for them (fun work). Those combined means I will be busy busy at work, and likely pulling full 8hr days until break (Yay! but tiring).
At home, I have christmas gifts to box and ship before Friday, an Inkle strip to get warped and woven (as a good friend finally decided what he wants for christmas), and more wool to clean, as I have spun all I have cleaned already,
Now add to that helping to decorate at my husband's work, waiting for ram to come in for my desktop (fan was failing and motherboard

You know those blu-rays or DVDs with like 3 movies on them? Most of the time it's like, Yes! Yes! Ugh, no, I'd never watch that! Why do they do that, it just stinks.

I need people to read my work as I edit it and give me constructive feedback and such. It doesn't have to be pure literary feedback or anything, but I just want feedback from the eyes of different readers/writers.
Basically, how it will work is that you let me know if you want to help me, and I'll give you a password to a Google Docs document that will be updated frequently with updates from the story and stuff, and then you can leave comments there and such. I might make it where you can see other people's comments too and such, so it's kind of social while reading. I mean, you don't have to be dedicated to it, but I'd really appreciate it if some people could help provide constructive criticism.
(If I'm happy with the help provided, I might even knit you a free doll or something...I'm still pondering that).
So yeah, if you have any questions or are interested,
I know this won't be popular, but..I think it's about time for me to do this. I'm going to stop selling patterns. I know some people might be upset! And I'm really sorry. But there are just too many stressors involved with selling patterns. I'm a highly anxious and stressed person in general, and I really need to cut out as many sources of stress as I can. I want to be able to put all the time spent formatting, taking pictures of the process and assembly, writing up instructions, sending patterns, helping people when they get stuck or if they're beginners, revising patterns, clarifying steps, etc. into making more new plushies and maybe getting back into drawing again. I have so many ideas! But having to stop and make patterns and instructions for all of them is really holding me back. I think it's time that I cut all of that out and replace it with more productivity. Once again, I'm really sorry to anyone and everyone that may have been looking forward to getting more patterns from me.

CommissionsHey everyone ^-^Commissions1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My days are currently filled with studying. But this winter break I'm going to be dying of boredom. So to prevent that from happening, I hope you guys can fill up my time with commissions or art trades. You can take a look at my work and if you'd like something different that doesn't have a pattern, I'll try my best to create this new plushie for you.
Boxed UpIt's that time of year again... working retail can really suck away the available craft time. There has been a lot going on around this end, and I decided to update my journal to let people in on the happenings .Boxed Up1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I am still working on a huge detailed project (that I still can't talk about), and I am truly sorry to the commissioner that it has been taking so long. I have been working really hard on it for months, and hope to make a short video to post to truly show it off when I'm capable!
I will be attending my first craft fair this weekend. I know. How could this be my first craft fair?! I've been crocheting for so long, and have been selling my stuff at conventions for almost 4 years now, but have never been to a craft fair! I'm mostly going to be selling old projects and con leftovers, so I haven't been working on anything special to take... I hope to be able to work on some new projects soon! So many ideas are running around in my head!

I fail... and ventIt has been exatly a year and one day since I have wrote a journal on dA. A lot has changed since I wrote the last one. I have moved twice since then for one. I've met several new friends, one of which is my current roommate. I have gotten into FreeRice.com. If you've never been there its a website the you can go to, to donate rice to feed the hungry. Its a lot of fun because all you have to do is answer questions, and for every question you get right FreeRice will donate 10 grains of rice to the World Hunger Program to help end world hunger.I fail... and vent1 year ago in Personal More Like This
To be honest though, I am writing this journal to vent. Usually when I need/want to vent I go talk to my best friend Becca. However I can't do that at the moment for two reasons. The first one is that she is currently in a different state, and the second one is that she is kind of what I'm venting about. You see I have loved her for a very long time and I just can't let it go. Mind you however she already knows that I am in love with her, but she
