The history of the birthday cakeOrigin of the birthday cakeThe history of the birthday cake2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In most parts of the world a birthday is just not a birthday without a cake. I thought it would be interesting to learn how this tradition started and how it transformed from one culture to the other.
Cake, the word
The word Cake goes back to the 13th century. The word is of Viking origin, from the Old Norse "kaka". It is described as a baked flour confection sweetened with sugar or honey; it is mixed with eggs and often includes milk and fat.
The cake evolution
Cakes were very different from what we know today, in ancient Greece they started off as bread-like, sweetened with honey.
In the middle-ages, Germany used a sweetened bread-dough in the shape of baby Jesus to commemorate his birthday. It was later that the Birthday Cake truly emerged as a celebration item

Food. Polymer clay food. There's a strange fascination between polymer clay crafters to make food, if you ask many of us won't even be able to explain what's so addictive about making fake food. Some of it is crafted for doll houses and doll props, some people make beautiful jewelry with food, but some just make it because it's so incredibly fun.

On dA for 10 yearsI'm happy to have been here for this long.On dA for 10 years2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It doesn't feel that long - but in a few more years I'll have been on this site for half my life. Sheesh!
I've improved so much having an audience to show work to, even if the point of the work wasn't an audience - just having a platform from which I could do anything at all has been really amazing for me over the years.
And then... PMD-e... which has been a really tremendous learning experience for me (and others!), in so many ways. I don't want to turn this journal sappy or anything, but I've been lucky to have met so many people and have gotten the chance to help create a community with its ups and downs.
And... speaking of such...
I'll be making a journal later about the state of PMD-e right now - I know the updates have been sporadic, and this has been for a few reasons. I've been thinking about how to word things for a few days now, and I don't think I've quite gotten it yet.
Anyway, for those of you who've been around since
FAQHi there, I notice that there were quite a few questions that people seem to ask frequently about my dolls and myself. I hope this FAQ will answer those questions. I'll try my best to cover what I can, and I will most likely be updating this FAQ from time to time.FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What kind of doll are they?
They are called Asian ball jointed dolls. Wiki has good info about them.
Did you make your own dolls?
They are sculpted by professional artists from Korea. But I painted their face, picked their eyes, cut their hair and customized them from head to toes. ^^
Where can I buy these dolls?
They are mostly sold online by various companies. Some popular companies include:
There many other companies though. You can always google them up. Or you can also purchase dolls through the second hand market on DenofAngels.com. It is recommen

Updated Rules and InformationUpdated! http://fav.me/d6qemlnUpdated Rules and Information2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't like to be all seriousface over selling adopts. But everyone's gotta have a few guidelines. It been awhile since I posted these so here's a quick updated list.
Always give credit where credit is due. If you redraw your adopt just say 'original design by feralx1'. Its that easy.
Ask before sending points. Points must be sent within 24 hours after confirmation. Send to donation pool.
Adopts are first to request, but if points aren't sent within 24 hours, the next person has the opportunity to purchase. Except for Reserved adopts which are on hold for a specific user(s), then they get first choice no matter what.
Once you buy an adopt, you can tweak the design, give it a new name, change the species, etc.
You ARE allowed to turn adopts into breedables, however you MUST put some further effort into the offspring afterwards. This means you can draw/design

Horsie Emotes and PLZsHorsie Emotes and PLZs3 years ago in Personal More Like This
How to Use PLZs
PlZs are just like avatars, they are new dA accounts that are used simply for the icon space. To use one, hover over it and you'll get the name of the avie. For example when you hover over :iconfoalplz: you get foalplz. So then, you type colon, icon, name-of-avie, colon, which looks like this, :icon*insert name of avie here*:, which turns into :iconfoalplz:. This will work for all avies when you hover over them, and as said above, PLZs are just avies. Just don't ever forget the icon or the colons/::.

An easy wire-wrapping tutorialWhen it comes to making jewerly, especially silver, wire-wrapping technique is one of the nicest consider the availability and costs of the materials (it definitely beats Art Clay Silver at these points). But before you get silver wire and start making such fabulous pieces like the ones I've featured in the end, it's good to take your first steps using something cheaper - and here comes the copper wire - and making something simpler, to get used to this lovely technique.An easy wire-wrapping tutorial3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This tutorial I originally posted on my blog a couple of months ago and I thought about sharing it also here.
This is what we're planning to get.
First of all, we need stones - the more regular they are, the better. No need to think about any super duper expensive ones now (: I collected most of them in my garden, there are also parts of my old broken earrings and a small glass ball. We also need sharp pincers, round pincers and a wire, 0.6mm or thicker, 40cm at least. Copper wire i
Autism doesnt mean you have the right to be a jerk==WARNING==Autism doesnt mean you have the right to be a jerk2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a rant. Read at own consent.
Before, let's recap. What is autism? Autism is a disorder of neural development characterized by impaired social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behavior. The diagnostic criteria require that symptoms become apparent before a child is three years old. Autism affects information processing in the brain by altering how nerve cells and their synapses connect and organize; how this occurs is not well understood.
Yet, one of the thousand behaviors that there is to the autism, Being a jerk is not in the list.
:iconXxJewelyJewelzxX: is the perfect example for this.
Let me explain through. She's a fucking jerk, you know why? Not only she thinks she can do whatever she feels like it with anybody she pleases, but she has toyed with me MANY TIMES, she thinks I'm some kind of statue or doll, something without feelings, she bullies me and bullies my bipolar condition, she bullies and mocks m
The LEGIT English face guide to AC: New LeafThere was a face guide I posted here some time ago. That was, when I saw English footage of it, the answers were pretty much different.

I know the face I want is the very first one you see. I also thinks that the eyes do come with eye colors. If that's true, I know that the one i'm aiming to get has my eye color, which is brown! I kinda remember the face I had in Wild World, which was the fifth one down with those anime-like eyes.
I wonder what face you guys want OR if you want to be random, like what I did when I got Wild World.
Kicks reminds me of someone from "Newsies", so I want a plushie of him....someday I will.
