Figured I should update my journal. I've wanted to upload some of the pieces from 2013's calendar, but I haven't been able to get much rendering done. I've been waylaid by illness and post-holiday fatique (I ended up making ten knitted snowman ornaments for family, a crocheted fish bag for my niece, a knitted infant dress for my other niece, a crocheted lunch bag for my nephew, and a whole bunch of crocheted household items for a family white elephant gift exchange--all in the three weeks prior to Christmas; planning is not my strong area).
Mostly I'm writing to let you know about my new Facebook page. I'll admit that I don't usually spend much time at all on FB, but I'm trying to work on that. I would love it if you checked out my page (and maybe, if possible, like it)! I figured it would be better to mention the new page here on dA rather than bug everyone on FB.
I am always doing more than I should at one time and various things get lost in the shuffle. I want to let everyone know how much I appreciate the faves, comments, as well as the many views I receive on my work. I am so grateful for everyone's support!
LOL, this journal layout doesn't match the current dA color scheme at all. Guess I'll need to fix that...

GIMP Script-Fu Updates
Fueled by no sleep and too much caffeine, I finally got around to checking my GIMP Script-Fu "actions". I've received many messages over the years that they no longer work. The good news is that I cannot find anything wrong with them. The Script-Fu scripts are still compatible with the latest version of GIMP—that is 2.8.10 at the time of this writing. The bad news is that it took me like five years to get around to checking out the problem, LOL :lol: And here I was thinking that I'd have to relearn the scripting language. One of the problems could be that the directory path for the scripts in version 2.4 was Program Files/GIMP-2.4/sh
Today I received a Daily Deviation for Branched! This is a special DD, because it's an important piece to me, the fractal artist. Branched is a fractal over two years in the makIng. I'm glad my obsessiveness paid off! I want to thank SuicideBySafetyPin (https://www.deviantart.com/suicidebysafetypin) for selecting/featuring my work, and also for nudging me to post again on dA. Not that there was any drama about coming back, but as I explained in my last journal, life got in the way. Also, losing much of my rendered work left me devastated and reluctant to render again. I don't know what I would have done if I had lost all my parameters. Fo
Even longer time no update...
It's definitely been awhile. (Why does dA look different every time I stop by? Wow, the New Journal Entry page is completely different now.) I was contacted by SuicideBySafetyPin (https://www.deviantart.com/suicidebysafetypin) through Facebook that I had been featured on Inspiration Station. I was very surprised and touched by the response. (Though, wow, some of you pulled out some really old stuff, lol). I wanted to thank all of you who posted a journal entry about my work, as well as those who continue to use my guides and fave my work. :glomp: I sort of needed it with all the stuff going on right now. The
Long Time No Update
News So, I've been a little, ahem, busy lately and haven't been able to update my dA account. Plus, I'm on a really slow computer right now (which is driving me bonkers). It's taking forever to do much of anything. Hopefully, I can get the wireless adapter for my computer soon to jack into the house's main internet connection. Bear with me, please. It's going to take quite a bit of time to go through messages and upload some new pieces. Haven't been doing lots with Apophysis, but there are a few things to share. Financially, things haven't been so hot. We ended up leaving our apartment before we got behind on rent and have since moved
