INTRO TO CROCHETINTRO TO CROCHETINTRO TO CROCHET2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Materials you need, techniques to hold and use the crochet hook and main stitches you must know, all in one article for you to start crocheting right now!
Why crochet is that easy?
Unlike knitting, crochet uses just one tool (a single hook) rather than two (a pair of needles) and you work one yarn loop at a time; these two factors are enough to make it less complicated.
Do you want another reason to choose crochet?
Well, another advantage is that it’s easier to drop your project and pick it up again without losing your work; The stitches won’t slide off just like with the needles, therefore there’s no chance of a line of stitches unraveling before your eyes!
Crochet projects develop more quickly (this is ideal for beginners and impatient people)
What do you need to start?
You won't need many materials to get started. The basics you'll need consist of a croch

REMARK: THIS JOURNAL MAY NOT BE VERY IMPORTANT.
This subject became irritating. every now and then some people come to my page asking if drawing is haram (forbidden) or not in Islam. the question itself is not what irritates, but some of the people asking the question. From my experience in dealing with these questioners, I could put them into the four following categories:
1. the Muslims who sincerely want to know the answer. some of these like drawing and wish to have a positive answer. but when they hear different fatwas (religious rulings) by different scholars, they feel confused. these people are welcome to ask. I can not tell them whether drawing is halal or haram. what I do usually is provide a link of an article by a Muslim scholar for them to read.
2. the Muslims who are literally lazy -I can't find a better word- to do their work in da'wah (presenting Islam to the world). these people don't do their j

Girls Collab - CLOSED! The list of remaining characters is at the very bottom of the page under "suggestions".Girls Collab - CLOSED!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
All the required characters have been turned in, so that means the final due date is one month from now on February 6th.
You can still sign up for characters, but the due date for any character is February 6th, even if you sign up a week before that day.
Also, since we only have one month left, people who've reached their max amount of charcters can do a few more if they wish. Let's say... three more if they so choose.
For this collab, we will be drawing all the Disney girls we can!
:iconattention-plz: PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BEFORE SIGNING UP! I don't want you to draw a character and not be allowed in because you missed a rule. ;_;
Any girl character can only be in the collab once. In other words, if someone has already taken her, then you can't sign up for her.
When we're done, Zimeta will put together all the individual girl

As such this deviation has been removed in accordance with our policies and should not be resubmitted."
"Explicit Pornography"?! Aw, jeez, guys. You must have the worst collection of porn on the planet to think that was explicit.
A 90s Rochelle Swanson outing was more explicit that that pic, and that stuff got aired, uncut, on terrestrial UK TV (god bless you Channel 5, you made the young Jack jolly).
I believe that, for something to be labelled "explicit", SOMETHING must be visibly going in SOMEWHERE. Such was not the case in the offending image,
Guardians of the GalaxyGo see it. Twice.Guardians of the Galaxy11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Because you won't hear half the dialog the first time around thanks to the audience's laughter.
Guardians of the Galaxy finds a right mix between humor, drama, and action. Even though I entered this movie with no knowledge of the comic book or its characters, I had no trouble getting into the story and being invested in each character's role. Peter "Star Lord" Quill instantly earns some audience empathy when he suffers a loss and is pulled into a space opera setting where he encounters Gamora, Rocket, Groot, and eventually Drax the Destroyer. Each of these characters is a loser.
More specifically, they've nothing left to lose. And that's what makes Marvel heroes different from DC. DC heroes are iconic, yet they are also so high on pedestals they can feel unreachable. Marvel heroes are more fallible, more vulnerable. They do the right thing not because of inherent qualities, but because they look around and decide what they've tried so far just hasn't worked.

Laying a wash
A wash is a large area in a watercolor painting where the paint flow and diffusion have been manipulated to efface individual brushstrokes. Within wash areas, color transitions are usually gradual and span analogous hues. Laying a wash is one of the most satisfying tasks in watercolor painting. Essentials of this s

The Name Of NatureI'm feeling a bit Emo today after receiving news a couple months back that a dear childhood friend of mine committed suicide and then this morning that a more recent friend of mine passed away last night, before her due time, leaving behind four children. I posted this on my Facebook page, but I feel that DA is really a more fitting environment for such a rant. Agree, disagree or agree to disagree. This is just part of my particular view on the subject of life and love.The Name Of Nature2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes we under appreciate the people we once cared so deeply for. The people who once made us so euphorically happy with minimal effort, the ones who delivered you the most genuine smiles and sincerest adoration are not a guarantee. It's scarey how simple it is to take for granted the threaded of moments life. Before you know it, the fabric of love and life have run out. Once the spinning wheel abruptly stops, all the tears in the world can never give it precious momentum again nor can all the money or gold ever b

Universal background checks will not keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Anyone who says otherwise simply does not understand how the black market operates. Such policy has never worked for drugs. Drug prohibition has cost the tax payers over a trillion dollars. Just because a gun can kill and marijuana can't is not a good argument as a reason to claim drug prohibition and further gun regulations as not being the same thing. Drugs are what fuels the violence in the streets. Universal background checks will not keep the GUNS out of the HANDS of criminals regardless if guns can be used to kill and marijuana can't. Guns being able to kill someone as a reason for the universal background checks is irrelevant, a
