So, I don't know how many of my followers/friends/subs are still actively interested or still even use deviantART anymore. Either way, hi, I finally have access to my account again! 

To cut a long story short, a naughty ex partner decided to change a lot of my account details, passwords, etc. So I lost a lot of access to certain different places. 

I also went through a bout of sadness due to all this hassle. So I just scurried back into the darkness and put my head down. Wellll either which way, I was able to come out of that rut, I also have no been able to gain access to a lot of the media I had lost. So double win. 

So what else is new? I moved and am currently in the process of moving to another new house with my fiancé and our 8 month old daughter, what was that?? Yes I have a daughter now too. :) So really, my life has got so amazing and gone in a massive upward spiral. 

So I apologise if I seem rude or ignorant, I wasn't ignoring anyone, I just couldn't get online to reply to all those lovely inbox messages, all the support, all the questions, birthday wishes and so on. 

For those of you who are long term followers, yes, I still have my black cat Ebony and my grey boy, Bandit! Although Ebony is very old now, she still is sassy as either and Bandit is like 500 times the size of her... I don't exaggerate. ^^

I too haven't been on in a long time, not due to such obstacles as you. I lost access to a decent computer, trying to live on my own and in Ina relationship. Life just stole my love of art. I keep saying I want to get back in, but I need to develop first before I start submitting work again. I used your image in a piece I did a long time ago, meant a lot. I had no real responsibilities when I did was more frequent on here.

Glad your life has been positive and your able to use the site again with your account.

That's one of the hardest problems is when you don't have that love or drive anymore, I was like that for a long long time a few years back, always longing but never really felt right! You're always welcome to use my work if it will help yours, I hope you find yourself again. Life eh? :kiss:

Wow! Welcome back!:wave: I've actually been wondering about you lately, after I was combing through some of my old folders with inspirational photos I had saved I bumped into a few of your old photos among them. Guess this explains why you weren't active on any of your social media accounts that I was following.
Shame you had to deal with an asshole, but I am happy to see that things worked out in the end and that you have a wonderful family and a wonderful life. I hope things continue being great for you in the future, and hopefully one day you get to show us your art again. :hug:

Aw nice to know I have been thought of. I did wonder how many people would be like "oh yeah I haven't seen you for years :o "

And yes alas that would be why. I have a new FB, use an Instagram account and currently rebuilding my website. :)

I'll pop some links up when I get to my pc.

It is a shame but it makes you stronger and realise you can make some really crap choices haha.

Many thanks my dear. :hug:

LadyxBoleyn's avatar
Was it Chris? Was that his name? :/ Why would he do something like that?
Oh yes I know about those kind of regrets :p
JArdley's avatar
Nah. I'll pm the name on FB. Never know who is skulking around :eyes:

I dunno, people are grade A asshats lol >_> why they do such absurd stuff never makes sense.
