Who are the Horses? (updated)I think I've had something similar before, but since I seem to have deleted that journal I'll just add anotherWho are the Horses? (updated)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are constantly questions about what breed the horses in the gallery are, how old, what pedigree they have and so on. So to satify those questions I'll simply give a quick presentation. Or well, presentation… It's more about posting the pedigrees I guess!
So, here we go:
Lovely mare used as a hobby horse. Belongs to a friend of mine.
Saw this one during an endurance ride last year.
(Saw this one during a dressage show.)
(Tall guy, 1,62 m. Currently doing endurance riding.)

Please Read: Quick word to watchersnote guys: This journal isn't meant to be flame or anything, so please, no need to mention trolls or any other insult.Please Read: Quick word to watchers2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Got a disturbing note. Read half of it and then deleted. i wont' say from who and I won't say what it was about. I'm just making things clear, especially for the younger watchers of mine:
When I sound upset online, I don't mean to. I hate sounding that way. When my faith gets attacked, That's when I get rude. I don't like being rude, but I can't help it. Try going through all of high school getting bullied. Being the unpopular girl. Being the one without an opinion.
Being the Catholic.
When I post certain things, like that PnF episode thing from a while back, I'm not mad at anyone in particular. I just get nervous and I tend to sound like I'm cracking. I know a lot of people apologize in comments and I don'T reply because i can't, but it doesn't mean that I'm mad at you. If you say "I'm so sorry! I really am!" I'm not actually mad at you. Honestly. And I don't want you
FAQHere I've compiled a list of the questions I get asked the most often ^_^FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) How long have you been making miniatures?
I started out in July of 2008 with a book by Sue Heaser called Making Doll's House Miniatures with Polymer Clay. It's a fantastic book with very easy to follow tutorials on everything from miniature potatoes to Tiffany style lamps. I was amazed at how such simple clay techniques could produce incredibly realistic results. From there I started using pictures of real food as a reference and it's spiraled into an obsession ever since!
2) Where do you purchase your plates and other miniature accessories?
Luckily there's a local miniatures shop called Little Enchantments (http://www.littleenchantments.com) that has anything doll sized you could possibly ask for. I've also bought dishes and all sorts of cutlery from Ebay.
3) Do you make the plates or just the food?
I only make the food ^_^ The only non-food miniature I've made is an itty bitty Makar

Anywho, a few updates:
I will try to post two pages for the comic on Friday, though I think most of you may hate me... they'Re pretty much Ted introducing the story (*coughnooncleryetcough*) XD He'll come in due time.
Also, wrote a bunch of Ted one-shots, and there's one in particular I REALLY want to post, but I can't until I reach a certain point in the comic... it sorta gives away something big soooo... yeah. (*cries*ithadreferecetoanowlcitysonginit)
And I'm working on a few goodies for thesassylorax' stories as well, one in particular for the final part of The Tale of the Lorax. So if you DON'T want any spoilers, GO READ NAO. My pic kinda.... spoils a lot -u-
Anyway... going over to MBeau's house today to do some comic stuff. YUSH. And then tonight it's working

After three years of owning the DVD...I finally watched the Squeakuel.After three years of owning the DVD...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It was a great film, I loved the animation (still kinda like the original chipmunks better but that's because I grew up with those)
But what I REALLY enjoyed about the film was that they kept the boys in character this time. Alvin and Simon were just.... holy cow, perfect. In the first movie, they had like, one fight, and Simon rolled his eyes like, twice, but in this movie I was just squeeing. The brotherly relationship they had, and Theodore being the baby bro that wants everyone to get along... My heart went out to him when his nightmare of his family breaking up was coming true.
That was the highlight, to be honest. Not even the animation. Just the sheer joy of seeing that the Seville brothers actually acted like the ones I grew up loving.
Anyway, aside from that, I'm gonna try to get a commission done once a week, as well as a comic page, so that I can open them up again fast. I can't promise anything, and the traditional art ones will be sh

Feeling Good, wrote a Lorax one-shotI wrote a one-shot for Lorax and Ted's daughter Cassey. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I had always thought that, being the guardian of the forest, the Lorax understands the circle of life and has seen deaths, whether they be natural or sudden. But considering the Once-Ler was the first person he came to build a strong friendship with, I always thought that his passing would be difficult for the Lorax to stomach. He knew it would happen, but he had not expected to mourn this much.Feeling Good, wrote a Lorax one-shot2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Enter Ted's kids.
Oncie and Cassey build a mentor-pupil relationship with the Lorax. They admire him and he teaches them things about the forest, and while he still likes his solitude and sometimes finds the children to be even the least bit irritating at times, he still enjoys their company. Not only because of their innocence but because they help keep his mind off of the good times he spent with his best friend.
I might post it. Might become a one-shot story line, I dunno. I'm still not happy w
Just Watched PnF: Bully Bromance Break upJust Watched PnF: Bully Bromance Break up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: Guys, I'd kind of appreciate it if you don't totally go all out and compare the PnF episodes to the Seer, please. At least not in a serious way. It's kind of starting to bug me, not to mention may get Disney on my butt for a dumb fanfic. PLEASE STOP.
Phineas actually lost it in that episode.
OMG THAT WAS AMAZING! I loved how he was all curled up in a ball as they were climbing! I swear, I thought he was totally going to lose it by the end of the episode, heehee! XDD
I'm way behind in PnF episodes for season three. I blame school and the considerable lack of PnFness in some of the recent ones. 0.0 I may buy the seasons off itunes US one of these days, though. That way, it makes it easier for me to watch them and not panic about bad quality.
Guess who feels like drawing a Phineas again? X3
New "rule" regarding to sales, gifts etcI'm tired of all those annoying re-claims both in and outside the group.New "rule" regarding to sales, gifts etc3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So to make things very clear!
When you transfer a horse to someone else - they OWN it!
I will not accept any more reclaims unless it is due to horse not being registered.
If a horse that was sold has not been drawn and sent in for registration after 30 days, starting the day after the sale, past owner may reclaim it.
But if it was drawn, you must help the new owner sent in the image in case they need such help.
Once we have the registration image in our inbox, the new owner can officially use the horse.
This way a new owner isn't punished for admin slowness etc.
Buy/Gift a horse to someone - the horse no longer belongs to you and you have no claim over it ... private rules can not change this matter!
If this is a problem, people may breed less and sell less horses.
PwlPwl Art Auction!In the spirit of Christmas, I'd like to propose a little art auction. This will be effort based, because I want to know that you REAAALLLLY want a slot to wish. Only those without a mutation, or without a Nordanner may enter!PwlPwl Art Auction!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I realize effort based art may scare you away. But don't worry, so long as I see that you're trying your best, it won't matter that someone is an amazing artist and you feel like you can't compete. I want you to wow me. Show me your best effort, and know that I'll be judging based on that, compared to YOUR OWN GALLERY.
Now, I may open two slots, but for now, you've got the chance at one. The subject will be TFR Three Wishes 2451, our little filly. She's got a few slots open for art, so I thought why not? Give back to you guys.
One entry per person. I don't want to be overrun.
She can be shown at any age.

SIGHWhy do people have bad lives?SIGH1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Why do people put themselves down because of their situation?
Its not their fault yet they blame themselves
and even when their friends try to help it doesnt do much
How do you open up to people?
Well its very easy I can tell you that
But How do you trust?
Thats the difficult part
How can you put your trust in others when no one puts their trust in you?
How can you trust others when others have taken your trust, completely crushed it, molding it to something sharp, and then have the nerve to run you though?...
How is it that no matter how good willed someone is, it rarely is enough to fight against the current that we call 'society'?
How can one person stand strong when their friends cant?
How can anyone stand tall when they have the weight of others pulling them down?
Theres a proverb -
"one manages to fall down on their own quite easily
But it takes a friendly hand to get back up"
A lot of times theres noone to turn to for help

Music JournalHere's a fun experiment for you guys, if you wish to participate. I'm going to give a link to five different scores of music and you guys have to tell me what you felt as you listened to it. This exercise is supposed to be something of a warmup for your imagination. For you to understand exactly what kind of effect music has on us when we listen to it.Music Journal2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the rules:
1) If it's a track from a movie you know, please DO NOT tell me what happens in that scene in the film. That is not the point to this exercise. I know it'll be hard not to do that because of the chosen soundtracks, but try to be creative.
2) Tell me what emotions you feel while listening to the one you felt was strongest. So that means CHOOSE ONE to speak about. Angry, sad, joyful, blahblah XD
3) Be creative and have fun! Draw or something while you're listening
Okay, so here are the tracks:
