Thank you + 300 Points GiveawayHello everybodyThank you + 300 Points Giveaway2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Originally i wanted to write this journal when i reached 2000 watchers, but school starts on monday and right now i have more time
I just wanted to say thank you to all the people that support me here on DeviantArt. When i created my profil about 10 month ago i never thought that so many people would like my work. This really encourages me to take even more photos. I love to hold contests, feature people and browse through amazing pieces of art, there are so many great things to do.
In this 10 month i got my first DD and even earned money with my photography. For me all that is just so...unbelieveable
Some stats :
My 190 deviations were viewed 353,182 times
Watchers : 1,981
My deviations received 7,239 comments
My deviations were added to favourites 67,964 times
My most favourited deviation is Blossom, with 3,060 favourites

Sorry to bother you...Hello all,Sorry to bother you...1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I thought I'd take a moment today to write a journal which is probably long overdue. I believe there is a common misconception floating around that CVs are so busy, that when you send us DD Suggestions, or other messages, you are being a bother.
Quite regularly the DD Suggestions I receive start with something along the lines of "I am sorry to bother you..." or "I know you are busy but.."
I'd like to assure you all that no suggestions you send, or any other type of contact made with me (or any other CV for that matter) is something to feel sorry or bad about (unless you are legitimately harassing us or something).
I've often heard community members talk about how many notes CVs get daily (often this number appears to be near 100) and I feel the need to say that this is very far from the truth. On average I receive maybe 5 notes a day. On a slow day I may not get any at all and on a busy day I may get up to 10. While I can not speak

Fear of CreativityA rather unfortunate, yet commonplace problem amongst creative minds is one of fear: fear of being creative, fear of making something that could be terrible, fear of rejection, fear of judgment, fear of failure. This root fear seems driven by every artist's desire to make great work. After all, that is why creative people createto build or define beauty as they see fit. So when inspiration strikes, there is both a drive to create and an element of fear holding back. The apparent duality of this situation is actually multifaceted.Fear of Creativity3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, there is the general fear of failure. Nobody wants to fail, creatively or otherwise, even though great minds have shown us that failure is necessary for improvement. This fear of failure manifests itself as hesitation and self-doubt, ultimately causing procrastination or just a delayed start, or even destroying the urge to create altogether.
Secondly, the fear of judgment. Fearing what others might think of the work, fearing comments of negativity

Here at CRCommunityProjects, we care about you and the community!
Welcome to our own project, the Mentoring Project!
This project aims to pair users who are experienced with projects and certain communities within dA.
There are many benefits to utilizing the mentoring program! Getting a mentor will help you learn more about your art community niche and how to set up projects and promote them effectively; becoming a mentor will help you do something wonderful for the community. Involving yourself in this project will hopefully lead to many lasting friendships!
This project, however, does not serve to be an art tutor style mentoring project, rather it focuses on the creation on projects, features, contests, groups, and resources!

Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?Hello everyone!Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Before you read, please keep in mind that my intentions are not to blame, insult, criticize, or say anything harmful about anyone! The intentions of this feature if anything, is to motivate us all in improving the group system and dA as a whole! ALSO this is focused more largely on photography, digital art, and a few other mediums, but I don't claim to speak for the cases of other mediums and types of groups that I am not familiar with.
EDIT: To make things clear, I don't believe dA or Groups will ever be "dead" in the sense of them not existing anymore, or members in both factions not existing either, I'm using "Death" more metaphorically perhaps, in saying that the way the group system is intended to be working, has been failing, and needs improving in order to not fail its purpose, and that dA needs to do something to strengthen the community sense and interactions between members both in groups and in the dA com
Encouragement-Affirmation-InspirationI have envisioned a way to feature many in our literature community in a way that would give attention to a broad spectrum of folk regardless of their skill level. This could be a great way to present yourself to the community and be a source of encouragement or inspiration to many others.Encouragement-Affirmation-Inspiration1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Here is how it will work.
1. Spread the word!
2. Note me with an uplifting quote of encouragement, affirmation or inspiration.
The quote should be brief and pointed; A few sentences preferred, though longer quotes of exceptional merit will be considered.
Cite the author if it is known; or you may write your own quote that fits our title's definitions.'Link' or 'thumb' a piece of your own writing in the note and state why it is meaningful to you. (If you are uncertain how to do this note me for help)
3. Depending on the response, I hope to build a library where the best and brightest uplifting quotes, and the featured providers, are displayed daily; though I suspect it will be

It's that special time of the year again, when you celebrate with your loved one! (Or alone. Like me. GO SINGLE'S AWARENESS DAY!)

Quilled Paper Hearts:
Cut a strip of the red card measuring 20cm long x 7mm wide. Fold in half.
Roll one end of the card strip tightly around a thin pencil or other cylindrical object, such as a teaspoon handle, leaving the centre near the fold unrolled to make the bottom point of the heart. Repeat for the other end. For a tighter curl, secure the rolled-up card with sticky tape and leave for a couple of hours.
Glue on card, and write whatever you'd like to that special s
