Beautiful Couples In Life And In Art - Part FiveIn a time when nothing is more certain than change, the attachment of two people to one another has become a rare thing, but just this increases its beauty.Beautiful Couples In Life And In Art - Part Five1 month ago in Personal More Like This
All of us want to love and to be loved, but this is not easy at all!:icontruesmiles:
Love doesn't means only "I Love You", love means commitment and respect, a strong shoulder who can support your head at any moment, a warm heart who can receive your joys, an energetic hand which can relieve all pain and depression, a mysterious smile during a dance, which always conjures the First Dance, but above all, love is the only feeling that shines over time when our hair is white and our wrinkles talk about memories.
This is love and life, this is what all of us dream to have and to share this is what we have to respect and cherish.
I had the chance to meet some beautiful couples in our dA community and I have the pleasure to dedicate a series of journals to them.
I want to do this because I want to let them know how

crossesim afraid of dark and deep water. a pool, an ocean, a lake. it doesn't matter.crosses3 months ago in Personal More Like This
the lake here is 90 feet deep. it sparkles sapphire blue in the summer months and by fall turns a dark gray.
absence of the sun does that to everything, the colors and life go right out of both things living and static. plants, people, lakes.
i'd been looking at that lake ever since it began freezing over and wanting to cross it. all my life i've pushed myself to and from the things that i fear most.
i was 7 years old and lived in a cottage with the sea behind it and a bay in front and i was afraid of that bay. it was dark and there was seagrass flowing through it bottom and top.
every day in the summer i'd skirt around where it curved in a 180 just to get to the small pier on the other side where i could use the rusty hooks and pieces of line left behind by the fishermen.
then one day i decided to make myself get in the water and cross that bay. i got my inflatable ring and put it around myself and i walked

There is a project going on to make beanie hats for the students of Sandy Hook Elementary. They need plain green/white beanies and are trying to collect 600 of them. The deadline for this project is January 31, 2013. If you can help out by making a hat and sending it off, that would be so wonderful. There is also a group that is collecting 6 inch squares to put together memory blankets for the victims families. You can read more about both projects on the Snappy Tots Blog http://snappytots.blogspot.com/2012/12/beanies-for-brave-students.html .

SSBB White Peach Dress - How it was madeSSBB White Peach Dress - How it was made1 year ago in Artisan Crafts More Like This
This journal explains how I made this dress on a tight, college student budget! I originally wrote this up for :icondelirix:. I thought it might be nice if I made it into a journal so maybe more Peach fans that want to cosplay could see it. This was only my fourth "official" cosplay ever, so I don't think that it takes too much talent to make - just lots and lots of time! I hand sew all my cosplays, so you might have to adjust parts if you're using a sewing machine.
~ History ~
This costume is biased on Princess Peach's alternative white dress costume in the game Super Smash Brother's Brawl. This dress in Brawl was heavily influenced by the Super Mario Adventures comic and Paper Mario 3, in both of which Peach is put into a wedding dress and is almost forced to marry Bowser.

Beadwork feature - shaped flowersFlowers in this feature, unlike the ones in Flowery beadweavings feature, were not made just by "painting" flower in beaded fabric using different coloured beads and, unlike French beaded flowers, don't need wire in order to get or keep shape. These were made using different sizes of beads, different stitches, different tension, by increasing, decreasing and shaping the beaded fabric. There are many different ways to make a shaped flower - from veryBeadwork feature - shaped flowers1 year ago in Artisan Crafts More Like This

1.) You must post the rules.
2.) Each person must post 5 things about themselves in their journal.
3.) Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create eleven new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4.) You have to choose 10 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.
5.) Go to their page and tell them you have tagged them.
6.) No stuff in the tagging section about "you're tagged if you're reading this". You legitimately have to tag 10 people.
Things about myself:
_ I hate crowd and loudly sounds. I hate cities.
_ Sometimes I have the sensation my life is just a dream and I will wake up soon. This is a strange sensation.
_ I came through drowning when I was young and I was really afraid by water since it happened. And I'm still not at ease with now.
_ I love snow. This is one of the things I find really wonderful.
_ I'm somebody who prone to depression.

Have you ever wondered....why more traditional artworks get less response then the usuall photobashed stuff does? medium level artists can pull of collages pretty easily but they cant pull of more painting heavy pieces...Have you ever wondered....4 months ago in Personal More Like This

"Will you share this on your journal?
Did you know the people that are the strongest are usually the most sensitive? Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated? Did you know the one who takes care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most? Did you know the 3 hardest things to say are I love you, I'm sorry, and Help me.

Please ask my parents, because I want to know the answer to that, too!
When did you start drawing?
I started drawing on November 16 2006 after a really traumatic incident in my life. Art gave me a new lease of life. I had been using photoshop for a fair few years before that, though, so I dove straight into digital art with my mouse. I got my first tablet on October 2nd 2007.
How long have you been on deviantART?
Nearly ten years, now. I originally used deviantART to look up images and stories to inspire my own writing.
What is 'gender neutral'?
I believe that gender is NOT binary. We are not simply male or female. We may have the genitalia of one or the other, but that is our sex, not our gender. Our gender goes much deeper than what we have between our legs. Gender is so much more than that! Gender is a spectrum and while we may lean more to one side or the other, some of us a
How to feel miserable as an artistI found this on facebook. I have no idea who wrote this, but I really agree with it. I'll also have to remind myself of a few of these once in a while.How to feel miserable as an artist1 year ago in Personal More Like This
How to feel miserable as an artist (or what not to do)
1. Constantly compare yourself to other artists.
2. Talk to your family about what you do and expect them to cheer you on.
3. Base the success of your entire career on one project.
4. Stick with what you know.
5. Undervalue your expertise.
6. Let money dictate what you do.
7. Bow to societal pressures.
8. Only do work that your family would love.
9. Do whatever the client/customer/gallery owner/patron/investor asks.
10. Set unachievable/overwhelming goals.To be accomplished by tomorrow.

You have no IDEA how much I'm sinking into this SHIP. It's only been half of the week and..it's killing me alive. Their bromance is...I don't know...real(?), I should say~ I mean, c'mon look at these two!!
harassingwith each other everywhere, and I mean EVERYWHERE, whether they're live in this show or not!
And look, even on their twitter buzz all the time!
Oh, there's more where that came from!! There's fanfictions, a little amount of fanart, and some living bromance going on in the show called The Voice (that's somehow turned into a Shevine show...)
To be honest, I don't even remember how I got into this ship but, for all I know, it has something to do with Adam because I could never see a guy like him to be with someone with the same gender until all of that change when Blake appeared in the picture! And get this, knowing that Blake is married to Miranda Lambert,

A friend said this about me, even if I felt so uncomfortable with accepting high praise. Everyone has something to offer someone else in need whether it be a nice compliments a friendly shoulder to talk on, inspire others through art, writing, creating or simply being you. So many things I can't list them all. Everyone has different struggles but if we use the lessons we learnt from them and pass them on or attempt to help so one than that makes a difference. Sure some people won't accept help but alot of people like to feel inspired and important. Each individual has something to offer others feel better and comfort them.
Hopefully this writing helps people create discussion and thought. If it inspires someone to do something for some on else grand!! . Big or small it really doesn't matter what matters is the attributes behind it.

A tak sobie pomyślałam, że częstsze pisanie journali to przecież nic złego. Tak samo jak opis stanowi cześć arta, identycznie journal ma spore znaczenie. A przynajmniej tak powinno być. Dobra, takie tam moje wywody. Przejdźmy do niekonkretnych konkretów. W sumie nie mam do końca pojęcia, po co ja piszę kolejny żurek, skoro pewne sprawy mogłyby poczekać do soboty czy niedzieli i nic takiego strasznego by się nie stało. Mimo to mam ochotę się wyżyć w nieszczęsnym journalu. Może to z powodu cappuccino, prawdopodobnie może to też być wynikiem wypicia szklanki herbaty i wciągnięcia dwóch kawałków piernika. Na herbatę zawsze spadała wina za moje dziwne pomysły i inne takie. Nie wiem, czemu tak jest. Może dlatego, że jest dla mnie jak narkotyk
