How to create a successful Group
My beautiful friends :blowkiss:
I hope everybody is doing fine and enjoying  their summer :dalove:
Today, I want to talk about Groups. I’m a member  of so many groups and I always encourage my friends to join as many groups as they can, a group is always a great place to meet new artists and let everybody know what you do.
But, I’m sure that you guys notice every now and then that there is a group that is not active or it has been around for a long time and it has so few members, or a group that doesn't respond to their members and so many other problems.  There are so many groups people create just for the sake of creating a group and they leave them just like that, with no activity at all :no:
How to create a successful group
let's do this :la:

Making A Living at DAZ3D
This was updated on 4/10/19.
Every so often someone asks if this is possible, how hard this is, and how to do it.  I'm writing this journal entry so I can just link them back to it instead of typing the same post or forum PM repeatedly.
I'm putting these down in the order they are usually asked, not in the order I think they should be asked. 
Q: How much money can I make?
A: I make a good living for the Western USA selling in the Daz market.  I have a lightly used car that's paid off and I own my own three-bedroom home in a high-income part of the country.  I also sell at Renderosity and on deviantart, but I would describe that as a "hobby" or "bonus" income; it would be hard to do without it, but it's not what pays the rent every month, either.  For the most part you will make back according to the time you put in.  Only a few top artists get into six figures in American dollars in our market, and they are the biggest names who sell the bigg

Upcoming Giveaways and Other Things

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 29, 2017, 6:01 PM

Fantasy Attic will be hosting their Halloween and Christmas freebie giveaways soon. I know, I know... it's still a bit early to be thinking about this. Well, I'm thinking about it now, because I Have notoriously very little time in which to actually sit down and work. Last year I missed both giveaways for lack of time as well as other health issues and such going on at the time.

I'd like to really do something for both giveaways this time. But what? LOL. I have fun doing poses, but I really want to do something more solid than that.

Sooooo.... this is the part where I ask, "What would you like to see made?" and hope some of you give me some ideas, because I'm at a loss, and I could sure use some input! I want to do something, but I just have no idea WHAT to do for either one yet. :)

Note :
I do not work with the G8Female. I can do Dawn/Dusk, M4/V4, or the Genesis 1-3's.

Some other things :

Adelaide for G3F - still WIP
Sukka for Dawn - still WIP
Pose packs for Dawn, Dusk, and Luna - still WIP
Various smaller freebies - still WIP

I have an awful lot that's still in progress. I still don't have any space in the house that is strictly dedicated as my own work space. I have a piece of the kitchen counter where my laptop can go, and I can work just so long as I can stand on my feet at the counter (and don't have other things to do).

I'm also still healing up from some recent injuries, thank you white supremacists in supposedly "blue" NY state... and after the first four months of the year with us having zero income, we're just now finally starting to dig out from a mountain of back bills. How we managed to NOT lose the house, I will NEVER know... but I am very grateful for it just the same. Thank you, my single mother who taught me how to juggle bills in order to keep them running without getting them shut off for nonpayment.

Anyway. Progress is being made here. Slowly but surely. But... my free time to work on 3D is very limited, and it's extremely difficult - at times impossible - to do without having a room that belongs to me that I can close a door on and focus. So my work is very start-stop-start-stop... which is another reason I'm thinking about the Halloween and Christmas giveaways NOW. LOL

On a non-3D note...

Our next door neighbor lost a willow tree on one of his properties in a recent wind storm. It was felled by the winds. He asked my Bear to come over and help him chop it down and remove it. 

I must be the only woman in this area who a man brings home willow branches as a peace offering, and it's actually the right choice to make! 

"Are you still mad at me? I done effed up, I'm sorry. Please don't kill me. Here, I brought you medicine." rofl 

This is how you know you're married to a healer... don't waste my time with chocolate or roses. But if you bring me medicine on the other hand...

I will do something with the willow branches, too. I just haven't decided what yet. Maybe a flute... I always did love the color of the wood underneath the bark on willow trees. At least the weeping willows in our area; it's just this very bright, gorgeous creamy almost-white color. 

I still feel bad for the poor tree. But at least it won't be wasted, and wind storms do have a tendency to bring trees down. Medicine, cordage, maybe a flute, some poles to support my tomatoes and climbers in my garden once the branches are cut, some other things... it will all go to use somehow. I don't waste anything... and even my city boy husband has learned that rule!

It's been far too long since I posted a journal here, I know. I can't guarantee that I'll write more often. But I'll promise to try. LOL

Peace, folks... don't do anything too wild, and if you do, don't get caught.  :smirking:

  • Drinking: Coffee, of course. What else?!
