The monthly Bake Off! is designed to make you bake or cook something! You have a whole month to plan what you'd like to do and there are various ways in which you can win some prizes.
This month the theme is 'Bread.' You can interpret this how you wish! I certainly didn't bake these rolls from scratch but used a packet mix (cheating but oh so tasty!) and got a little creative with how I arranged them. It would be good to include the recipe in your commets, or a link to the recipe if you took inspiration from elsewhere. It will help with regards to the prizing criteria listed below too...

Meet Fan-Artist of February 2013!
Tell us about yourself and you only been here for a whole year now, what is your biggest (and proudest) accomplishment? Like a time when you felt like you were right on top of the world
I’ve been drawing since I was little. I kept it as a hobby and draw stuff I like from time to time. Since I love Dragonball, basketball, I started drawing a lot sketches related to these subjects with traditional medium and kept it up for years. At first I just look at other artist's work to get inspired, now I really like the deviantART community and appreciate what I can learn from the community.
Well, I never felt like on top of the world^^, but I guess the biggest accomplishment for me is when others told me that I inspire and motivate them to become better.
What does "Art" mean to YOU? What about "Fan Art"?

New Pokemon Dungeon game on 3DSFinally a good enough excuse to get a 3DS, I was gonna get it anyway for Pokemon BW2, so I can use my laser gun and shoot some Pokes in my room, however it seems like Pokemon massacre was the only thing fun and unique about getting a 3DS for BW2... Well problem solved! A new Pokemon game has just been announced for the 3DS, and its none other than the popular spinoff series POKEMON DUNGEON! This time the game has a long ass name, its called Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Magnagate and the Infinite Labyrinth, a total of 14 syllables! Lucky this is just a direct translation to the Japanese game, don't know if they will translate it to something simplier with the western release. The game in the trailer looks dope, with 3D character models instead of the sprite ones from previous games, it also features the Unova Pokes heavily meaning you will have a chance of using Oshawott, Snivvy and Tepig.. I will probably use Pikachu again, no matter how many resets it takes. Umm what else? OhNew Pokemon Dungeon game on 3DS3 years ago in Personal More Like This

It's been recently brought to my attention from a fellow Bleach fan who's from South Korea, bu-nong, whom very unfortunately and sadly have to purge her entire beautiful gallery and plead to anyone who has her works anywhere else online to delete them for fear of facing the harsh new law which will jeopardize her career as a professional artist.
In an excerpt from this tumblr blog http://toffmikin.tumblr.com/post/36136052920/new-korean-laws
The Korean government has recently passed a law that says, in it's most basic form, "Anyone found as a creator, seller, or buyer of materials containing adolescent pornography will be punished as a sexual offender."
Okay, well, that makes sense to stop the production of such things, they're no good after all, right?
This wouldn't be such a problem if the rules weren't as ambiguous as hell.
More specifically, the law states the following counts

Humans..This journal will be deleted eventually- I have no real purpose for it.Humans..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Their emotions are interesting to witness.
I'm amazed by the way humans lash out at one another.
How they can be such gentle creatures, then the next minute, blood thirsty beasts.
I'm attracted to them.
Like a scientist to lab rats.
I like to watch.
Humans can make strong relationships over time,
But none of them are forgiving or understanding enough,
To work hard and push through together,
While those relationships they made turn into a war over night.
To me this is nothing but a Comedy.
Humans can act like such children, even if they are old.
Everyone is always right.
Yet everyone is always wrong?
I truely do believe that humans are strange beings, and I'll never fully understand why they do the things they do.
Does anyone else think the way I do?
The Holiday Card Project: The Denver VA Hospital:iconKatara-Alchemist:The Holiday Card Project: The Denver VA Hospital2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The Holiday Card Project is a project conducted by deviantART to collect holiday cards from deviants around the world to be distributed to different hospitals and bring a little holiday cheer to the people in those hospitals. This year I was lucky enough to be able to participate in this project in a major way: handing out cards to a local Denver Colorado area hospital. I choose to hand the cards out at my local Veterans hospital and was lucky enough to have picked a hospital with an incredibly friendly volunteer department that was more than willing to let me come hand out cards.
The cards arrived in two bundles, though one broke open. There some freaking amazing cards and artwork in both bundles. You guys are all amazing for making such great cards!

Wanna kill yourself? Imagine this.
You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time.
A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing,

LimitlessI am amazing, I have and will continue to do great things, I am the right guy for the job, I am the right guy for her, I can do and be anything. Sounds arrogant doesn't it? But why should it? Why should someone limit how positively they see themselves? So that people don't think that you're a dick or so that you don't big yourself up to be something you're not? But what if you can be that something, what if you already are? People saying things like, "She/he/it is out of my league" implying you can't achieve a certain thing when someone else could, just makes my brain ache. Why can't you achieve something and even go further than what someone else has already achieved? It makes no sense to believe you're inferior to someone else in any way so long as you choose to attain their level of status in anything. Anyone can be with everyone, anyone can be anything, there are no limits as to how far you can go so long as you choose to actually go there.
