Last year I visited a craft fair and discovered in the paper decoration / paper crafting a super great new material.
Maybe some of you know it.
But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.
It can be used for paper decoration, for gemstones, paint and much more.
In this tutorial I made a kind of decoration for costumes versions/ setting f
Remembrance Day FeatureRemembrance Day Feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
They shall not grown old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Lest we forget.
The above is an extract from a poem called "For the Fallen" and was written in 1914 by Laurence Binyon. London-born Binyon wrote it 7 weeks after the outbreak of World War 1. British newspapers teemed with the news of the dead who'd fallen in battle, and it was against the backdrop of these bleak days that he wrote this poem. This verse, known today as The Ode for the Returned and Services League [RSL], has been recited at all military commemoration services for almost the last century. 'Lest we forget' is usually intoned at the end as a mark or respect and gratitude for those who served.
There are two such services for which we most associate this poem with: ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day. Today is, of course, the latter.
Remembrance day is he

Autocomplete for Mentions
We've just launched an addition to the Mentions feature that makes interaction easier than ever!
When using @ to Mention a deviant or Group, a list will now appear in a menu while you type that includes deviants and Groups you +Watch, deviants who have already commented in the conversation, as well as deviants who have the exact username that you have already typed in, if applicable. This addition makes conversation more dynamic than ever, as communication becomes even easier.
Please note that this feature is only available on places where the "Add Media" button is available (comments, deviation descriptions, Journals, etc.).
The Message Center counter would consistently show one extra message. Fixed by shadowhand
Submitting text files to Scraps would not trigger Message Center notifications for watchers. Fixed by DEVlANT

for me... my new years decision that i might actually try to uphold is to further work on killing my remaining cynicism.
i have been fighting hard to destroy it and hopefully it will die in 2014 XD
cynicism is an attitude that sees only problems and gives no solutions. it is a poison that spreads fast and has a way of ruining the days of many people....
i can feel that shit creeping up within me way too often and i will not stand for it! XD
anyhoo.. back to work for me cya!

"A foreign female patient is staying with us for a month, she's on her way to our house from the airport and does not wish to be seen...so. Go to your room."
My mom commanded as she lit candles and set them high on the book shelf. The eerie flames flickered casting long dancing shadows on the walls. The damn typhoon blasted out our electricity.
I think it was around 3AM or 4AM. The heat was unbearable. My room was practically a candle lit sauna. I tossed and turned...then suddenly.
You know one of them creepy, slightly opaque glass door, that reveals a figure behind the door, but you couldn't really make out the shape? Yeah...unfortunately, a portion of my door had that shiet.
I kid you not, I saw a female silhouette , long flowing hair just gently floated by my door. The golden flickering flame emanating from the small candle on her hand shone brightly through the cracks of my door.

2013 Notes / Happy New Year!2013 some things that I've noted about :2013 Notes / Happy New Year!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Real Pros:
I have met some of the best artists in my industry and by and large they were humble and well adjusted people. These folks are the types who are approachable and don't spend time basting in their own glory, and can be spoken to like humans and not pompous self inflated stars.
You pros who look down on people just because you think you have a talent that happens to be praiseworthy in this century, keep in mind you still meet death like all of us, you still walk the planet with waste within you like all of us, you can have your talent taken from you in one quick accident. Here but by God's Grace, your talent is not guaranteed for tomorrow, neither is your life nor health, so show some humility, it all can be taken from you in heartbeat. You're an entertainer, and everyone's equally important whether a baker or accountant since we all contribute to society. Having status is a test to show if you're going to be a
