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.

People of Austria I have a mission for you!I was just informed earlier today that my work was featured in a newspaper from Austria yesterday, Friday 15th. I WANT THAT NEWSPAPER. I NEED THAT NEWSPAPER. I was told it was a small article but it doesn't matter, it's the first time I'm published so I want to own it Edit: I don't know which newspaper was it!

I want you to receive double the value from me than you spend.

An Essay Everyone in Fandom Should Readhttp://aiffe.tumblr.com/post/43660300604/for-all-the-women-i-have-loved-who-were-dragged-throughAn Essay Everyone in Fandom Should Read2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I found this through a blog I stalk, and while it's a little long I think everyone should take some time to read it and reflect on their fandom behavioral tendencies, especially us ladies.
I think we've all been guilty of some of the behavior mentioned in the text. I know I have. While I like to think of myself as an equal opportunity lover/hater of characters, I've found myself falling into the traps. It's something I'm aware of and every time I see it happening I try to step back and give myself a little finger wag.
I'd like to add that #5 "Die for our ship" doesn't mention fans' OC/self-inserts for getting with the male characters we want to bang. Since that's something we see a lot of on DA I think it is worth mentioning that some fangirls will hate on canon ships and the woman involved because it means the man is 'taken.' I used to do this. I'm still guilty as hell of self-sertion, but

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 tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

First of all, we need stones - the more regular they are, the better.

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

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

Hello folks! Sorry for not being able to update this section of the journal lately
But here I am with some fresh news about our blondie
