Respect Animals - FeatureThis is a Feature, that really means a lot to me. It is dedicated to all the animals that have toRespect Animals - Feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
live in shelter, on the street or in abusive homes. All the photos in this Feature make me feel
sad. Animals do deserve a loving home. They give you so much and they do deserve the same
in return. Humans are animals too. If you treat them bad you will be punished, but hurting and
abandoning animals is okay?
And everybody please don't go to expensive breeders before you went to your local animal shelter.
There are so many lovely animals that are waiting for you. Is it really that important that a dog or a cat is purebred?
The character is what matters.
If I could see beyond the here and now
If you could hear me calling you somehow
If I could know that love is reaching out
To find you with me tonight
Then hope could make these promises come true
Beyond what I could say, what love can do
With every moment leading me to you tonight
I will stay forever here to wait for your love

Happy New YearLet's all start the year off with some stuff I wish I had growing up:Happy New Year10 months ago in Personal More Like This
So I read an article last night on people who are mentally strong and the DO NOTS of being that person.
I took those notes, and listed them, including how I learned to overcome these obstacles. It's a long read, sorry, but I figured this year it's time to open up and share that knowledge that I was once taught by someone I consider my mentor, business partner and bestfriend, Stephan.
1. Don't waste time feeling sorry for yourself - I used to feel this way as a kid. I was a child of divorce, and used it as a crutch when I was younger. I hate a (mentally) abusive step-mom who would constantly take me down. I began to feel that maybe it was true, and I wasn't going to be the person I wanted to be.
You can't think that way. No one likes or enjoys a Debbie Downer. Someone who is constantly on the negative or pining for sympathy. I began to overcome these complications with art or writing. Using tha

THE NEXT THREE YEARS OF MY LIFE
I had received a job offer at Microsoft. I guess this could have been one of my first 'big time' jobs, so I was a little ecstatic. It felt like a slow build to get to this point, after numerous indie games and under the table freelance jobs, but finally it had come.
I was working with my now best friend and business partner, Stephan, a suave German who I had met only a year or so prior. He had brought me into the fray, working with several other individuals who will, well, simply be known as individuals for privacy sake.
But yes, finally, I could put a professional company I

How to avoid a creative block / find your styleI have been thinking about this a lot over the years. And have also been asked these questions quite often. Mostly by beginners and a pro here and thereHow to avoid a creative block / find your style3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's what i came up with
If you have a creative block - don't know what to make, have no ideas, are tempted to borrow somebody else's design or redo your own - try this:
- listen to your favorite song and recreate it. translate the sounds, the dynamic, distortions etc. into shapes, colors, textures. listen to the song 50 times if necessary. it can be done and you can do it!
- translate another piece of art into jewelry - go to a museum, browse through photos and paintings on dA, google couture dresses, whatever you like (just not jewelry). find one that you love and make your own smashing piece of jewelry!
- limit yourself with shape or color or materials:
a) pick a shape and make 3 completely different pieces of jewelry based on that shape. use whatever colors and materials you like
b) make 3 completely different pi

Let's talk about... DeathDo not stand at my grave and weep,Let's talk about... Death1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
[-Mary Elizabeth Frye, 1932]
Hello my friends. I thought it would be a good time to do another 'Lets' talk about...'.
It is by no means my intention to wake sleeping grief.. my apologies in advance if that happens.
Death: What are your thoughts about it? What do you think awaits us after? How do you feel about it, do you want to "fight it" or do you accept (your own or your close one's)?
As a ravenheart, I'm fascinated and greatly inspired by Death. It lets me see things from a diff

Knowledge is Out There, Grasp It!EDIT 2/13/14:Knowledge is Out There, Grasp It!9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Due to a few concerns that I'm overgeneralizing through my use of the word ignorant, I wanted to amend some things:
1. This journal was not written out of a pretentious attitude, in fact it's quite the opposite. I feel the need to share knowledge, and I do whenever I can. I could never be upset with those who truly do not know where to start when it comes to enriching their minds.
2. This journal is not about lording knowledge above those who do not yet possess it.
3. This journal is not about bashing someone for the barriers that can impede or prevent their desire or ability to absorb new information.
4. I do not encourage people to "just Google it," that is why resources are listed at the bottom.
5. If you would like to contribute a resource, please link it in your comments.
I’ve been hearing the phrase “I don’t know what ____ is” a lot as of late and it’s been a little irksome, and here’s why: we are currently living in
August Artisan Crafts DD RoundupWow how fast the time passes! I can't believe this is already my third roundup, I'm actually very happy with this month's DDs I think I received a lot of great suggestions for unusual crafts, and I was able to feature some of the most obscure and under-recognized crafts. Please keep the awesome suggestions coming! Remember that I'm specially interested in the original, different and non-ordinary crafts of course I love and consider all the suggestions, but I want to get all the crafts out there. This week I'm looking for etching, knitting, embroidery and clothing.August Artisan Crafts DD Roundup2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
