Yep, I couldn't wait out the last two weeks of my premium membership. I just had to go on ahead a switch over.

This account will no longer be updated. I will however be switching back to it to monitor the CATS-ARTIST fan group until I can figure out a way to switch out my new account as Founder. This account won't be deleted though, so all of my old art will remain here.

My new account is :iconcayran: - bare with me as I try to get use to the transition! I hope to see you there. :D

Oh my lawl.

I'm addicted.

Addicted to what you might ask? You have to request an invite to join the site, but you are never turned away. It allows you to browse the internet for art, pictures, trinkets, food, clothes, etc and pin them to your page so that you never loose them, and if it is something you can buy, it links you to the site you can buy it. It a sense, it is a photoblog, and totally worth looking into. :)

Mine is . Check it out!

Possible New Account?

Evenin' y'all!

So, I'm thinking about creating a new account, and if I decide to do so, it will be right after my premium for this account runs out. If I do create a new account this one won't be deleted. I repeat, this account WILL NOT be deleted. I just am tired of my "user name" and since all of y'all know me as Cayran or Cay, I feel it is best if my deviantart account name was just that.

If you follow me and want to continue to follow me, please keep an eye out for a journal pointing you in the right direction of my new deviantart home page. I just need to start fresh. :)

I saw CATS!

Journal Entry: Tue May 24, 2011, 9:49 PM

My OCs

Evenin' y'all!

If any of you follow the national American tour of CATS, you know that currently the show is in Charlotte NC, which is about an hour or so from my home town. Anyway, although I had planned to go see the show tomorrow night, I went tonight instead with a friend, and only one word comes to mind when I think of the performance; MAGICAL! Okay, so many more words could describe just how awesome it was, but you get the picture.  

My friend and I had orchestra level seating (which was wonderful), and because my seat was on the aisle, I got up close a personal with the cats that ran up in and down my row. One of the highlights of the evening was when Plato knelt down by my seat and began playing with my hair. You can only imagine how thrilled I was. :) I was in CATS fandom heaven.

Okay, on to interesting facts about the show. Tantomile and Coricopat were not included in this production. Instead, Jerrie and Teazer acted their part in some scenes and sang their lines. I was sad to not see the mystic twins on stage, but everyone else was present and accounted for. The costumes were a mix it seemed of the original American version, and the Japanese version. For example, Demeter looked a bit like the Japanese Sillabulb, and Tugger resembled his Japanese counterpart as well. Nevertheless, the mix between the AmericanJapanese looks really turned out well.

Sorry to disappoint you die hard Munkustrap/Demeter lovers, but they really didn't interact all that much save for the moment after he and Alonzo(the American brown/gold version) saved her from Macavity. It looked like he gave her a sort of "pity" nuzzle . Instead, Munku was ALL OVER Rumpleteazer. It was rather precious actually. She isn't the queen you'd think they'd pair him with, but for some reason, I noticed them together more than once. It was obvious that Mistoffelees and Victoria were siblings in this production, for they interacted by pawing at each other, quick nudges, and even Misto playfully pushed her down once. Misto and Cassandra were a pair. I kid you not, right after Munkustrap "scolds" Misto for thinking Jennyanydots's song is his, Misto goes to Cassie, and they practically almost make out. No lie. My eyes got real big, and my jaw might have dropped just a tad. I liked it though. ;) They also did the mating scene together, so they were obvious. The other noticeable pair was Alonzo/Bomba.

I was rather shocked by just how good the singers were. Grizabella was fantastic, as was Munkustrap and Old Deuteronomy. Tugger was pretty impressive as well, as was Jellylorum. The only singer I was disappointed with was Jemima. She just wasn't what I expected. Despite her though, it was all fabulous. On a final note, let me just say that the guy who played Munkustrap was SUPER TALL. He towered over everyone, was so very hunky. Also, the man who played Misto was surprisingly masculine as well. He was limber and lean as Misto should be(and semi-short), but I was pleased by the fact he wasn't portrayed as a sissy. Also on another Misto note (can't you tell Misto is my favorite?), when he was "Quaxo," he asked more as a second and or third command rather than a kitten. He and Alonzo would always stand guard with Munkustrap, and I LOVED it.

Lastly, my favorite scenes were Growltiger's Last Stand, Mr. Mistoffelees, and the Heavyside Lair. If the show heads close to you, I would recommend going to see it. It was wonderful experiencing the magic of CATS yet again. :)

Howdy ya'll!

So I did it! Finally a college graduate! I got my bachelors degree in music with an emphasis in vocal performance. Despite all that is going on in my personal/family life at the moment, getting that diploma made me extremely happy. Now I am looking for a job, any job! Although I would love something in my field, at the moment, I'm not going to be picky. I'll try and do anything, and eventually, I'll make it to where I want to be. :D

death in the family

Evenin' ya'll.

Just a quick heads up. If I'm not on as much in the next few days, just know it is because my grandfather died only a few hours ago. Although he hasn't been well for quite some time, it came to a shock to us all; however, he passed quickly and peacefully. He didn't suffer at all, which we are all thankful for. I love you all, and I will catch up when I can.

Love always,

Evenin’ darlin’s!

I think it is high time for another “Cay” update, yes?

Instead of being three months away from my college graduation, I am three weeks away. Lord how time flies! I still have no clue as to what I am doing, but there are a few jobs I am applying for. If all else fails though, I will probably move to Chicago. There are more job opportunities for me in a large city than there is in a small town, and although I LOVE my small town life style, I need to make a life for my self elsewhere for a while. Other than that, I completed my senior recital, performed in opera scenes, passed my exit exam, and survived the tornados!

Speaking of the tornados, I thank those who have shown concern and attempted to contact me in the last couple of days. To answer your question, yes, I’m a-okay! A tornado did strike down a mile away from my college campus, and although one boy did have to go to the hospital for stitches, no one was seriously injured. We just had numerous tree branches down and what not, but we weren’t hit nearly as hard as Raleigh was. I think the death count now is up to around 20 there with 50 some injuries. Over 93 tornados struck down in North Carolina alone Saturday! That is something.

On another note though, things are slowing down for me, so I should be able to pop out some new drawings soon. After doing art homework, I rarely have the motivation to attempt anything else. Nevertheless, I do WANT to draw for myself and you all, and I promise I’ll jump to it soon! As for my Alexandrian Tribe stories, I’ll type up the next chapter when I have the motivation to do so.

I hope all of y’all are doing wonderfully, and if y’all ever need anything, don’t hesitate to ask. :D

just life, and the need for coffee

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 12, 2011, 9:54 PM

Evenin' y'all!

God, when was the last time I wrote a journal? Oh yea…October. Geeezzz, sorry I'm such a slacker. My journal writing skills just goes to show that I would never be able to keep a diary. I knew that about myself anyway.

So, a brief update. Nothing much going on here! Last time I wrote a journal I went on about the opera I was in, my cooking skills, etc. The opera went VERY well, I'm still cooking and learning, and now, for this semester, I'm just concentrating on graduating. Yep, that's right, Cay's graduating from college in three months! Gosh, such a scary thought. Lord knows I am excited, but I am also rather nerved as well. Have I any clue as to what I am doing with my life afterwards? No. Will I miss my friends? Yes. It is such a transition. Nevertheless, I'm working on it. I have my Senior recital to work on, and I am freshening up for my exit exam.

I have multiple others things possibly happening in my life/ the life of my family, but I won't reveal anything about that until I know for sure. They are exciting possibilities, and although I would LOVE to blabber away, I'd rather not mention anything until plans are set in stone.

Lastly, I know I have been a huge slacker when it comes to my art list, but usually when I have free time at school, the last thing I think of is pulling out my tablet. Sure, I sketch all the time and have a few drawings sketched out, but I am making no progress on finishing them. I just need inspiration is all! Inspire me dears. We will see if I managed to pop anything new out in the near future. ;)

I hope everyone is well, and see you around!

shower of leaves

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 12, 2010, 10:38 PM

My OCs

Hey guys! News of the week: I can cook now!

Well…decently at least. I finally got over my fear of burning things and gave it a go. Also, I figured it would give me more options meal wise. Being a vegetarian at a university that requires you to go to the caf (where they serve an abundance of meat) at least 5 times a week doesn't do me much good. Anyways though, I can whip you up a swell batch of cookies now! :D

In other news, sorry I haven't posted a journal in a while. I could blame it on school, but there wouldn't really be a point in it. Writing just isn't on the top of my to-do list. Same goes for the Alexandrian Tribe stories. I am trying to get the next chapter out, but my muse is being shy. That and I am busy working on my resume and applications for grad schools. To all it's readers though, I haven't forgotten about it! I will get a chapter out when I can.

The opera I am in is going well. : ) Everyone was rather prepared when we started rehearsals, so it should be a good show.  My professor is making me grow my hair out for it, and although it is at the "annoying" stage at the moment, I am enjoying having it long. I missed be able to throw it back into a pony tail - it is so convenient.

Did I mention that fall is one of my favorite seasons? If not, now you know. Reason? Well, the leaves change colors, it gets cooler, and we mustn't ever forget HALLOWEEN! Best holiday ever! When else do you get to piss yourself silly on haunted trails, wear wild costumes, and get free candy? I just love it. Yes yes, Thanksgiving and Christmas is dandy, but Halloween is without a doubt my favorite.

Anyway, that is my life for now. Cooking, veggies, school applications, opera, and season changes!

Ps, I want to make everyone a fall mix CD. Can I?

Howdy partners. :)

Just a quick little update on my life. Things are going well! Some of you know, but I got a new scooter, and I adore it. I named "her" Bug. Scooters/vespas are becoming rather popular where I live, and you see them everywhere. Why not though? They are cute, and fabulous when it comes to gas mileage. I have a car as well; however, I drive little miss Bug around just as much as I drive good ol' Ulga (my car).

School starts back in the next couple of weeks; however, I return to campus this coming Sunday. The reason I am going back early is because I am chaperoning an orientation trip, and taking a group of freshman caving/ white water rafting. I am super excited, considering I love doing outdoorsy activates, and I can't wait to paddle my way down the great  Nantahala. It is such a rush, and I honestly get pleasure out of tipping the boat over. I'm such a horrible boat buddy, aren't I.

Going back to school doesn't mean my art is stopping! Hopefully I can keep my art going once I get back to school. I am thankfully not taking as many hours this year, so I have a little extra free time on my hands. I will be more than happy to set up a trade with you anytime!

Speaking of school, I have found a few nice little music grad programs in Europe and Australia, and I am seriously thinking about applying. As previously mentioned, I want to study/live abroad for a while, and what better time then now? I need a little more culture in my life. Moonshine and cow pastures aren't cutting it. :P

Anyway, I get my wisdom teeth pulled tomorrow morning, fun fun. I am so dreading it; however, my dentist said that I should be up and running again within the following day or so. They are making me take some killer drugs though tomorrow, so who knows, we might have a "Cayran after dentist" video. Just kidding. Lawl, who knows what I would draw while under the "influence." Nevertheless, I am pleased that I am finally getting it done. Even if it is costing me a leg and an arm, I would rather pay then having my wisdom teeth make my teeth crooked.

That's about it folks. Just figured I would give you a brief update.

Peepers and Projects

The beach was awesome y'all. :D

I returned yesterday from my little vacation, and I am more than ready to jump back in and produce a picture or two. I did manage to complete the 7th chapter of "The Alexandrian Tribe," and so, if you happen to be following along, things continue to progress.

Also, if you check out my OC page (click the link up top) you will notice I listed all of my secondary OC's. Most of them are up for pairing if anyone is interested, and another tom is on the way. (Isn't it quite obvious that I love creating toms?) If interested, you know the drill, send me a little note. I am not strict with them, so they are fair game to all.

Anyway, as previously mentioned, I enjoyed my stay at the beach. I did get some sunburn, but nothing that kept me from heading down to my sandy heaven everyday. We stayed ocean front, which is always nice, and enjoyed watching out little dachshunds frolic about in the tide pools. Of course we had to bathe them everyday, but we didn't mind. We also crab hunted, star gazed (my favorite), danced to some awesome beach music, partook in wonderful beverages, and shell hunted. My mother, friend, and I walked a three mile trek to the end of the island most evenings to shell hunt, and we found a total of 156 sand dollars. It was wild. Despite my nice vacation though, I am glad to be home.

I have a few art projects and gifts I will be working on in the next couple of days or so, including some awesome journal memes I found. One is a youtube based one, which should be fun, and the other is picture based. I most likely won't tag anyone, but you all are more then welcome to steal them for your own. ;)

Lastly, one of our chicken nests hatched yesterday, and we have cute little chicks (peepers) running around. I can't help but squeal with delight and go "Awwwww" everytime I see them, and cuddling them is to much fun. I would carry one around in my pocket if I could. :D I'll try to snag a picture of them if I can.

Anyway, take care sugar boogers!

Hello ladies and gentlemen. :D

Since I have completed my massive character reference sheet project, I am moving on to another art project, as well as the next Alexandrian Tribe chapter. I have already started it, so you should find it in your deviantart watch box soon. I am at the beach all week, and so, I should have plenty of free time to sit down with a cold drink and complete it.

As just mentioned, I am at the beach. I thankfully got a week off from all of my jobs, and so I am going to sit back, relax, and do what ever the heck I feel like doing! Crab hunting, swimming, fishing, tubing, riding sea dues, shell hunting, reading, writing, drinking, you name it!  My family and I go to a lovely nature preserved island off the coast of North Carolina called “Sunset Beach,” where there are NO hotels to be found. You must rent a house on the island to stay, and you aren’t allowed to drive your car unless coming or going. Instead, we bring our bicycles and scooters and frolic about. It truly is a fabulous area, and I always enjoy being here.

Anyway, I do have internet (obviously), so you aren’t quite rid of me! On another note, I just bought myself a 12 month premium membership. I am trying to get a hang of things and pep up my page; however, don’t be surprised if I send you a little “help me” message. :D

Love always,
~ Cay

Hi ya’ll!

I figured it was about time for another little update, and since I am in quite the chatty mood, I shall ramble on!

Since I have returned to America from South Africa, nothing much has been going on. I am working three, YES three jobs, and keeping myself relatively busy. Thankfully though, I do have time to myself so that I can enjoy the wonderful summer season, and what a scorcher it is! It is usually about 95 degrees Fahrenheit here everyday (35 degrees Celsius), and slightly cools off in the evenings. I recently have taken up running, and so, I have to make sure I run late in the evening so that I don’t pass out because of heat exhaustion. Lordy me.

In other news, I have been a vegetarian for a month now! “What? An American that DOESN’T eat cheeseburgers?” - you might wonder; however, yes, it IS possible! I quite enjoy the vegetarian life style. I do occasionally get a hankering for meat, but all in all, I find that I don’t need it, nor want it. Also, my family has recently gotten into mopeds, or “scooters.” My mom bought one last year to drive around when gas prices were so high, and now my father has one, and is about to purchase another. I simply love them! Not only are the cute and affordable, but they are honestly super fun to ride around on. I am thinking about buying one myself; however, that all depends on what I decide to do after college. It is either find an affordable grad. School over seas, or look for a job up in Chicago. I am leaning towards traveling over seas. I have always wanted to live in another country for a while, and it is better that I do it while I am young then wait and risk never going. I will most likely look for a school in Europe somewhere. I honestly don’t care which country either. If I have to learn another language, then so be it, it is all about trying something new after all. :D

Now for the depressing stuff…

My grandfather has recently been taken to the hospital yet again because of heart trouble. He can’t seem to shake it. We have tried everything too; surgery, meds, you name it. To top it all off, my 28 year old cousin was just diagnosed with colon cancer. The tumor is roughly the size of a base ball, and is to large for them to operate on. The doctors are suggesting that he go through a round of chemo to see if that shrinks it a bit. If not, I sure do hope that they can figure out something, because the poor boy is far to young, and he has his whole life ahead of him.

Anyway, enough of that, let me move on to a more happy note. I helped my father birth twin baby goats last night. :)  Two billy goats to be exact. I have done it numerous times now, but in never ceases to amaze me, nor put a smile on my face. It is all in the life of being a farm girl I suppose. With chickens, cows, goats, dogs, cats, and other numerous critters running about my farm, it is bound to happen!

Also, Sunday is the fourth of July! Wooo! Happy B-day America! :D It is always a drunken celebration for me. Every year my family and our friends drive up to our mountain cabin and go tubing down the New River. If you don’t know what tubing is, it is where you hook inner tubes up to what we call “beer boats,” and just float and drink, and watch the fire works.  You get plum smashed, but it is always a good time. There is also a late night cook out at the end of the day, but we let the sober people handle that.

Lastly, to add on to my list of awesome activities, I will be heading to the beach in the next week or so. I will most likely have internet, so you won’t be getting rid of me. My family and I usually go to a lovely little island off the coast of North Carolina called “Sunset Beach.” It is practically a wild life reserve with a couple of houses here and there. We absolutely love it! You aren’t allowed to drive your car on the island, unless of course you are leaving and or coming. Instead, you rent or bring bicycles and just ride them. Thankfully that retched oil hasn’t made it up the eastern coast yet; however, if something isn’t done soon, we will be seeing it before you know it. The oil clean up was halted because of hurricane Alex, but hopefully now they can get back to work.

The oil spill is just horrible, don’t you think? Not only is it destroying an entire ocean, but killing all the wildlife that rely on the oceans’ resources. I am just simply appalled by it. If BP doesn’t get a handle on it soon, I don’t know what we are going to do. I’ve donated money to one of the organizations working to clean and restore the health of affected animals, so hopefully that will help in some way or another.

Anyway guys and gals, that is all I have to say for now. I apologize to all those who actually took the time to read this massive post, and I promise that the next one won’t be as long. :D

I love you all! <3

This is the Country Quiz!

You may not know it, but people all of the world are curious of other countries and the people that reside in them. Do them a favor and answer a few questions; you will be surprised how similar we all are!

So, what is your name?
~ Anna Elizabeth Odom

Do you have any nicknames?
~ Ann, Anna Banana, Odoann, Odie

Nice! What country do you live in?
~ United States of America (holds back strong urge to sing America, Fuck yea…) XD

Oh really? What state, district, town, etc?
~ North Carolina, close to the Appalachian Mountains.

What language do you speak?
~ English is my first language, but Spanish is my second.

And your accent?
~ Southern. We say "y'all, yon't to, yawna, gettin', goin', dun wan' it, etc etc..."

What is your heritage?
~ On my mother’s side I am Scot/Irish and German; however, my father’s side is completely Scottish. They wear kilts at family reunions.

So what are 5 bad stereotypes your country is known for? Are they true?
1. We are fat and lazy.
~ Somewhat true, sadly. We have our skinny, medium, and large people; however,  I see more skinny to medium people than I do horribly obese. We do have some major fatties though. The eat to much McDonalds. Also, you can say we have what you call ba-donka-donks. :D As for being lazy, no. No. NO no no no NO. We work our asses off. As a matter of fact, I know A LOT of people who are workaholics. Some students may seem lazy simply because they would rather party all night and then study, but once they get jobs, they buckle down and work. We aren’t lazy in the least bit as far as I am concerned.

2. We are trigger-happy war mongrels.
~ NO. Americans hunt during deer season and what not, but we don’t want to blow everyone to bits. You’ll find if you visit America that we are quite civil (despite the intentions of our government.)

3. Americans are stupid.
~ No, not really. I find most people are educated; however, in smaller counties and towns, you can find a couple of people that don’t know left from right. Every country has those people though.

4. We think we are better than everyone else.
~ Not really, we are just patriotic. Despite the current issues our country is dealing with, most Americans are nevertheless proud to be an American, and I find no harm in loving your country. Some people can take their patriotism overboard though, making us seem self-absorbed. A lot of foreign visitors might get that impression if they simply go and visit the big cities; however, if you ever drop by the US again, visit smaller cities and communities, and you will find that everyone is rather nice.

5. We are extreme religious freaks.
~  Well, it all depends really. The main religion is Christian in the USA, so you have many Christian denominations. The Baptist denomination (though not always) is the one most likely to be what you would call “Jesus-happy,” but we have a lot of religious cults out in towards the western part of the country that are just as bad, if not worse.  Despite this though, the MAJORITY of Americans aren’t religiously insane. Some are, but not all. Once again, just like every country in the world, you have your normal people, and your crazies.

Nice! Thanks for clearing that up. Now list 5 good things about your country/ its people.
1. We are happy! So so SO very giddy and happy! Quirky is more like it, at least, I am. We all have our moody moments, but most of the time, you’ll find us smiling or laughing about something. Ever watch Hetalia? If so, you know how America is always smiling like a fool…yea…that’s us for you. We smile, and we like hugs! City folk might not smile all that much, but come visit me, it will be happy time. :D

2. We like gadgets, do-hickeys, and thinga-ma-gigs. Anything electronic, we want it. Instead of saying “Ooo something shiny,” we say “Oooo new iphone!” But we like shiny things too…

3. USA is rather pretty. From the Appalachian mountains, all the way to the Grand Canyon, America has some BEAUTIFUL land marks and country sides. You can visit a desert one day, and a beach the next. It is just fantastic. Come see for yourself!

4. We sob while watching Disney movies. (everyone, and I mean EVERYONE I know does)

5. We are caring. I don’t know one person that wasn’t upset about the earthquakes in Haiti, and I know many people that went over there to help. Same thing about any worldly problem. The majority of Americans TRULY want to help in any way they can; however, if we can’t physically lend you a helping hand, or financially, you will most definitely be in our thoughts and prayers. <3

That is pretty cool! Now list 5 more things your country is known for.
1. American Football
3. Fast-food restaurants (sigh)
4. The entertainment industry
5. Cowboys

What countries are closest to yours?
~ Canada is right above us, Mexico, Cuba, the continent of South America, etc below us.

What do you think of the first country listed?
~ Canada? Where is that? No, just kidding! :D I love Canada! Especially the people. I have a lot of Canadian friends, and they are truly fantastic. They are so very chill and laid back, and I love the fact that I can get them to watch Animal Planet and the Discovery channel with me. My American friends won’t.  I am STILL trying to prod one of them into finding me one of those Olympic moose hats. A moose will do as well though.

What about the European Countries?
~ I like all of them as well. I don’t know why on earth anyone would absolutely hate another country, after all, just take away our languages and accents, and we are practically all the same. I really want to visit Europe though. Everyone I know that has visited says that it is very beautiful, and that there is an “old world” fill about it. I am totally into that!

And the Americas?
~ Um, as previously mentioned, I live there. Well, in North America at least. Very pretty and diverse; nice people.

Cool. So what is your opinion of the Middle East?
~ The same as my opinion of other countries, I like them all just fine. No harsh feelings here. Even though America and Iraq are at war at the moment, I still don’t care. I personally believe we shouldn’t have started that war in the first place. Also, I think Bush is an idiot. Iraq wasn’t the cause of 9/11, and what weapons of mass destruction?  There were none, Bush lied. Thankfully my dear non-Americans, the majority of Americans dislike Bush now. It may have taken some of them 8 years to figure out how horrible a leader he was, but at least he is out of office now.

Who did you vote for in your country’s previous election?
~ OBAMA! <3

Name the political parties in your country.
~ We have numerous ones; however, the MAIN parties are the Democrat and Republican parties. Democrats are known to be far more liberal and the Republicans conservative.

Which one are you?
~ Democrat. I’m liberal all the way!

Have you ever visited another country? If so, which one(s)?
~ I just recently visited South Africa, and I loved it! The country was charming, and the people were so very considerate and kind. Also, I think we are going to Brazil over Christmas.

Is your country experiencing any problems at the moment?
~ Yes, it is. We don’t hear much about the economic crisis anymore, and now the country’s attention has turned to the Gulf oil spill. We just recently had a major flood hit Arkansas, and left 20 dead with hundreds missing. :(

Are you worried?
~ I am very worried about the Oil Spill. I just HATE that it happened, and that it is practically killing an entire ocean. I just hope to God that BP cleans it up soon, and pays for all the damage it has caused.

Is everything else in your country okay?
~ Yes, from what I know. We are doing just fine. :D

Good! Now, tag three people to take this quiz!
~ I tag… :iconmu-nin:, :iconmsterope: , :iconlykaios-garou:

Hello darlings!

I am just letting you all know that I just got back from South Africa. Let me first say that I had an AMAZING time, and pictures will come soon. The people of South Africa were all so very nice, and good luck to the country next week as the Soccer World Cup begins.

Some exciting things that happened was one; we got to sing with a South African choir and interact with the people, two; I got to go on a couple safaris, three; I got to pet and cuddle cheetas, and four; we got to play in the Indian ocean. Also, beer and mixed drinks were CHEAP. ;) It was FABULOUS. I wish I was still there, but I am glad to be back and I am ready to start back on my art again.

South Africa inspired me, and I know I said I wouldn't create any more main OCs but there is a new tom design that is stuck in my mind, so you may see him soon. I can't hold back when inspiration hits. :D Be looking for him!

Once again, I missed you all, and I am glad to be back!

Love always,
~ Cay <3

Well guys and gals, I am off!

I am driving to DC tonight, and catching my flight tomorrow afternoon. I will be gone for about 10 days. I am not bringing my laptop with me; however, if I find an internet cafe or something, I will check in. :D

Just be good and submit pretty art for me to look at when I get back!

Love always,
