PE: Discussion - What is handmade to you?Browsing the artisan crafts gallery there's one word I see popping often: "handmade" or "100% handmade". In a world full of mass produced objects and faceless corporations, crafters strive to return the magic and beauty of handmade objects to the world; some buyers show a great appreciation for handmade products, they will go great lengths to find them and are willing to pay a bit more for something that was made with love instead of sweat.PE: Discussion - What is handmade to you? in Art Features More Like This
However I also see the word handmade being misused. I'm not talking about mass producers or resellers incorrectly labeling their work as handmade to cheat buyers, which is a serious problem on its own. I'm talking about people buying premades, molds, cabochons, or complete pieces, doing some minimal work to it and later calling it "100% handmade". And accepting full praise - and price $$ - for it.
I've seen this so much that I've begun to doubt my own definition and wonder what other people consider to be handmade, so I'm reaching out to you, my fel

Self-Harm Awareness 2013 Crafty EditionToday, March 1st is Self-Harm Awareness Day, but I think it deserves more than a day. I won't say much about it because other people have already published wonderful articles about it, I recommend that you read NicBelroque's Fears vs Dreams and Beccalicious' Recovery, both contain a lot of wonderful information and share touching experiences.Self-Harm Awareness 2013 Crafty Edition in Art Features More Like This
What I can tell you is this: self-harm is a problem that is often not recognized. It takes many forms, forms that are not recognized even by the person committing it. Self-harm is always a problem, even if you think you have it under control or that it's not serious, it is. If you are currently committing any form of self-harm, or if you suspect anyone else is, reach out for help. Both articles contain links and resources to guide you, and I'm here to talk :iconheartorangeplz:.

Anette got home sometime in the wee hours of the morning and walked into her kitchen. A Christmas fairy (yes, I realize it's October) pops out of her refrigerator. The fairy is all blonde and sparkly and adorable and scares the crap out of poor Nettie. She asks "What are you doing here?" and the fairy replies "You're pregnant again." Anette's all like lolwhut and the fairy says it's not Johan's baby so Anette's like WAT. Then she informs her that it's Tuomas', and Anette kindly explains why there is no way in hell that that would be possible. The fairy says "Oh, but it is!" and grabs Anette and they leave her house. They just kinda magically poof into Finland and find Tuomas. He is of course very confused at the sudden arrival of Nettan and this tiny sparkly thing that is trying to convince him that he is the father of Anette's child. After

Devastated...that's a good wordI got the news 45 minutes after it was released. I was sitting in one of my classes when I read it. I've been shaking and crying the whole day. Everything seemed fine at the concert I went to...it was just such an unexpected slap to the face. I'm so depressed it physically hurts. Now I understand how everyone felt when Tarja left. I also hope to continue following Nightwish, if they decide to venture forth with yet a third vocalist. And for the love of God, I hope Anette's okay and they release further details later on. It's only been five years with her...only two albums...I feel like I've been shot in the chest. And I was at the second to last show ever with Anette. I'm not sure how to feel about that. But they found a substitute so quickly...it feels like she was, I don't know, pushed out. I know she was sick, and I know she was upset about what happened in Denver, but it sounded like everything was fine after that. Her family was going to fly in, she got medication, everything.

UGH JuneGiving you an update from mah phone because I don't have time to get on my laptop. I'm free from summer school and have been since the 20th. But on the 21st my mom had surgery so I've been living in the living room and taking care of her 24/7. So as you can see, I haven't had a whole lot of time.

My brother is a computer programmer and has been making computer games for years now, and he plans on using those skills to make a game for his girlfriend as a way to propose. He has asked me to do art for the game, mainly the characters. And then he's going to teach me how to animate (yay!) so I'll also be helping with that.UGH June in Personal More Like This

Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunde

Tell us what you thought about GLAM's performance and how you felt about SeeU's performance, the hologram graphics and so on.
I could hear SeeU sing with them up until they went "hey!hey!hey!"
I liked it, though maybe at a concert they'll sing I=Fantasy with SeeU :')
However, in my opinion the hologram was terrible. But this is their first time, i assume, that their using a hologram for this, so i have to give them some credit.
That's right, you heard correctly.
SBS is like our MTV in South Korea, it is a huge thing. Which means SeeU will be known!

Few days ago INTA recommended european deputies to reject ACTA during voting which will take place 4th July in European Parliment.

And so, the democration in EU appeared to be just a fairytale for masses.

To reflect this change, I unfortunately have the raise the price of United States shipping from $2.80 to $3.00. I hope you all understand this change! I do everything I can to keep shipping costs low, but this particular change is out of my control. International price will stay the same at $3.50 per package, as it doesn't come with delivery confirmation and is unaffected by this change.

Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!Why don't I get enough freelance work? Are my prices too high? I see these types of questions on Deviant Art a lot. Whether you are just starting out or you have been freelancing for a while, there is a good chance that you can improve your workload and income by applying a little bit of self confidence and assertiveness.Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt! in Personal More Like This
1) Don't wait for work to find you. Go find work. Read job ads. Find jobs that suit your skills. Also adapt your skills to match the jobs you find... That's very important. If you can provide a style or service that other artists can't match, that gives you an advantage. Make a list of freelancing sites and other sites with job advertisements. You can find some of them here: http://friendlyhand.deviantart.com/journal/#/d52v4i3 Keep track of which sites provide the BEST job leads for you and visit them regularly. Be prompt when applying for jobs. Some clients will take days to pick an artist but other clients will choose from the first few applicants.
