time - time - time - I need more of it!!!

After I was on Faceoff I had a lot of time to wait until they made the cast announcement public... so during that time I finally sat down and forced myself to sort through years and years of photos and put a website together.

I had been meaning to do it for years anyway and as the hours... days... weeks passed while building it I thought "YAY now I can easily update it when I do a creature"....

Ummm that's not how it has gone... at all. In fact life right now has been keeping me so far far away from my pc (and I DO miss being online!!)

So I had a couple days here and decided to force myself to once again sit and go through a ton of photos.

YAY to that...



BUT...

NOW I need to update/add some art here! :P and Facebook and HRE and LG and Twitter and Instagram and Tumblr...sigh...

((HUGS))


Finally!!!!

I have been meaning to do this for a very...very... very long time - and since I'm crap about taking photos it always felt like such a daunting undertaking... AND IT WAS!! BUT I finally finished my website!!! (pretty much)

**happy dance**

If you wouldn't mind please take a peek and let me know what you think.

Thank you!!!!

I joined DA just over 3 years ago at the constant "nagging" of a good friend ;) 

And I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone that stops by, and to all the wonderfully supportive comments, to all the new friends I have made here, to the expression of awesome ideas and to the (omg) DD!

Three years ago I was afraid to join and now I can't imagine not being here.



and now....

I made it thro my hubbys surgery!!! LOL

2ish years ago I had an accident where I ended up scalloping my eye deeply from the white into the blue with -- of all things -- my fingernail. Like it was a pincushion....

Fast forward to yesterday.

My hubby, who was nearly legally blind without glasses, had advanced lasik - the kind that fully maps the eye and is good enough that military pilots can be cleared to return to flight...

He wanted me to video the whole thing so he could see it later...umm GAG!!!... but I love him so *sigh* I did it.

I set up the camera in a way that I would not have to watch as after my accident I get VERY VERY queezy thinking of things happening to an eye.

However the nurse thought I was too pale and that I was near fainting so one came to sit with me.

Her "small talk" was to tell me in explicit detail what the doctor was doing at that moment with an occasional "See that's not bad at all"

Well human nature is to look at what another person says to look at... so GAG I did every time she said that... the thought not to look was just a wee bit slower than LOOKING!!!

So I go home with a hubby who is very uncomfortable in goggles who is on valium so he not articulating his discomfort in a way that calms me of his distress... I have now seen a horror show and I force him to sleep for the next  7 hrs while I pace and try not to be ill.

Finally its time to wake him for the first eye drops (again I can barely handle this idea) BUT I wake him and he can SEE and he is no longer in pain and he is not foggy and can explain everything!!

SOOOOO relived - my stomach calms - I still cant get the images out of my head and until the marker dots go away on his eye I will get a tad queezy BUT I made it - I videoed it - and hes ok and doing great and he can see the world!!!

that inner voice...

ok this has been an exercise in necessity.

You always hear people say - or read those motivational things of "tell yourself you can and blah blah"  right...

That little voice in you that doubts, that says its too big, too overwhelming... you can't.

I have always had that little feeling with me, ever since I can remember...
and it has actually stopped me from doing so much and recently have been put in a situation where if I listened I would fall...

I really dont want to curl up frozen by that "you can't"  - I have too much I want to do and too much I need to do to be stopped.

So every time that "cant" thought creeps in I have closed my eyes and actually said out loud "you can do this...you will get through it" And tho its not taking the pain of loss away I am not (so far) crippled by my insecurities...

Time is ticking quickly on a big project that I HAVE to complete and I have to focus everything on that.

SO...

Is my attitude just a form of denial?
Stubbornness?
Determination?
OR is there something to that "change your thoughts change your world"?


then the world stops...

The next adventure...

:icongabbyleithsceal:



With the conclusion of my second favorite fictional elf :( I needed something to focus on... and I think I have figured it out... me... sorta.

This is a totally different way of thinking for me as I have always focused on everything and everyone BUT me.

Of course this adventure WILL include my two favorites elves BUT in a different way and I am excited to start down this path... no matter where it takes me LOL.

Its new - its different and I am a little excited.

Will blab more as I work out the details ;)

Its been years since I did one of these...
and I really wanted to just do something Nuada related that had no pressure... no expectations attached to it...

Its kinda funny...
I started making Nuada youtube vids to see more Nuada.
In a way...
But there was nothing new.
So I started 3D Nuada to see something new.
And I AM enjoying that immensely!
But I so just enjoyed going back to seeing what was.
For no other reason than I just wanted to do it.
