Bags and Pouches Contest! - 5 HOURS LEFT!!Hey Plushkateers!Bags and Pouches Contest! - 5 HOURS LEFT!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I wanted members to make something useful for this contest, that they would like to use again, so all the themes available were to make something useful. Therefore, the theme of this contest is BAGS AND POUCHES!
Now, because this is a plushie club, and plushies are soft toys that are filled with some kind of stuffing, there MUST be something plush on the bag or pouch. So you could make a plush bag, that's stuffed and thick to keep your items safe, or a bag with some kind of plushie sewn on to decorate (just examples). It's up to you
MUST include something plushed.
One entry per participant for this contest!
Wanna enter a plush, that's already in the group gallery? Click me!
Only those that fit the theme will be accepted.
You may use previously made plushies, you don't have to make one especially for this contest, but you may NOT enter with professional/store bought plushies, o

Luke 23:34:iconstrawberryr: here, with another short journal with a message for all of you.Luke 23:343 years ago in Personal More Like This
Luke 23:34 is a verse I recently thought of that came into play in my life recently.
I discovered the truth of an event that took place in my past, where boys broke into my home and broke irreplaceable family possessions, and yet...
when I was sitting there, sobbing, I didn't wish them to die, I didn't wish they'd be sent to jail forever and killed, I didn't want them to suffer.
I asked God to forgive them.
Luke 23:34 reads, "Jesus said, 'Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.'"
We need to keep in mind that holding grudges against people is not a Christian thing to do. We need to live our lives better, in ways that would make our lives and the lives around us happier and better overall. Jesus preached forgiveness, and even forgave the thieves next to him as he stood, dying on the cross.
Let's all remember to be forgiving as October comes around, and to not feel like the world or t

2012: Year of the Dragon
DRAGON CASTLE by randis
According to the Chinese zodiac, 2012 has ushered in the year of the dragon upon the world stage.
In addition to occupying an ages old position in our cultural consciousness, legend and folklore surrounding
the dragon mythology has long been firing the kiln of our dreams with fright and menace. When we are speaking of
Dragons, we are speaking from ancient texts gathered form the beginnings of kept records of any kind and fro
Fake DevaintsA teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying.Fake Devaints4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Manga Supplies: where to find them.We've made a few posts about small-batch printing and how to go about it, and that can be an important part of making doujinshi for those who do want to go to conventions and sell their work. It's occurred to me, however, that we haven't actually talked about the process of making manga and doujinshi. This morning as I was inking some doujinshi pages of my own, it came to my attention that I was very low on art supplies. There is one website I get almost all of my supplies from, but I decided to look around to see if I couldn't find more variety or competitive prices.Manga Supplies: where to find them.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll try to make several posts about what kind of supplies I use for making manga, but right now, I want to talk about where I get them. If you have any other suggestions, let me know. I'm really interested in hearing about companies in countries other than the US. I want this to be helpful for everyone! Like I said, I've been ordering from one store consistently for the past ten years.

Initial Release of the Motion Book ToolIn April of last year, we announced a partnership between deviantART and Madefire, bringing Madefire's signature Motion Books to deviantART and introducing a new form of storytelling to the world's largest art community.Initial Release of the Motion Book Tool1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
We also announced that Madefire's professional-grade Motion Book Tool would be brought to deviantART—giving deviants the opportunity to turn imagination into a visual, auditory, and literary masterpiece, and showcase their art alongside some of the industry’s greatest creators.
After months of development and testing, we are excited to announce that the gradual release of the Motion Book Tool has begun, and you're (very likely) among the first to gain access. Having access to the Tool means you can create dynamic Motion Books just like the pros, and publish them directly from your deviantART account!

An argument of Faith(Found on :iconhumon:'s journal, reposted by :iconstrawberryr:. I thought this was appropriate.)An argument of Faith3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Professor : You are a Christian, aren't you, son ?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor: So, you believe in GOD ?
Student : Absolutely, sir.
Professor : Is GOD good ?
Student : Sure.
Professor: Is GOD all powerful ?
Student : Yes.
Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn't. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?
(Student was silent.)
Professor: You can't answer, can you ? Let's start again, young fella. Is GOD good?
Student : Yes.
Professor: Is satan good ?
Student : No.
Professor: Where does satan come from ?
Student : From … GOD …
Professor: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?

Nov.21/11It actually sickens me what people will say about you , like you aren't even real . I understand constructive criticism and even flat out rude comments don't bother me , but they do bother other people . On my latest photo , I was called anorexic , ugly , disturbing etc. As well comments like "why don't men look like men anymore?" What has society become that we find it socially acceptable to EVER talk to someone like that . If I didn't have thick skin that would bother me a lot more . But for the people it does bother , you could be taking away an innocent life by talking to someone like that . It just makes me so upset how we treat each other and that it's just going downhill . I have a project for you . Go to school/work tomorrow and go up to one person who could use a compliment and say something nice to them . Little things can make a big difference .Nov.21/114 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway I'm gonna take my anorexic body , caterpillar eyebrows , fake eyes , duck lips & mountain nose and embrace them .

BusyHurry, hurry, hurry.Busy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is my life nowdays. Busy all the time. When I'm not, I just need to veg out. Because of the way this city and it's suburbs are layed out and the way the bus system works, it takes hours just to go to one store, shop and get home. Nothing is centralized, except the bus station. It's frustrating and fun. It does mean I have to go somewhere nearly every day. I do love to explore. The bus drivers are great and everyone who rides the bus has been friendly. I'm learning my way around.
There was some excitement this last week. Someone burned something that set off the fire alarm around 9:30PM, Thursday. Tulip and I had just settled in for the night, when the loudspeaker came on and said to evacuate the building. Soooo, I grabbed my slippers, robe and Tulips' leash and off down the stairwell we went.
