Journal Entry: Sat Jan 5, 2019, 12:39 AM



First of all, I need to say I had to get that last journal off of here.  I couldn't look at it anymore.  Also, Happy New Year and I hope everyone, and I do mean everyone, has had a good holiday season.  :eyes certain people, unsure if they are still paying attention to her stuff or not:

I've had a rough time, relationships crashing aside.  My medical situation went to crap due to the stupid way I had to try and re-do my medical coverage.  Apparently, even with the help of a care coordinator and the actual company person on the phone, we couldn't figure out how to fill the application out correctly and I lost my medical coverage.  I ended up going cold turkey off my meds.  Like, all of them.  But being off my Lyrica (for my fibromyalgia) was the worst of it.  On Christmas I had to work first shift (7am-3pm) and half the time I was just sitting there with a trash can in my lap, throwing up.  Lyrica is considered a narcotic, so I was basically detoxing.
I have it back now, thank any gods that are listening, and my hips don't hurt nearly as much.  But I'm a little light-headed from getting it back in my system.  I'll take it, though.
During this time (since the Friday before Christmas), I've done pretty much nothing, artistically.  I drew up the things I needed to do for my various secret santas that I joined, but they haven't been fully colored or anything.  And for that, I apologize profusely.  This includes the pixel gift I'm supposed to do.  That would have been done by now, but for some reason... half the WIP file ended up corrupted, so most the work I had started I had to do all over again and I'm not quite finished... Hopefully tomorrow at work I can get that done and off to where it needs to go.  Then I can concentrate on the colored pencil work that needs to be done.

Beyond that, check these out!!

I never realized you hated me so much.

I never realized you felt like you do.

I never asked you to give up on yourself for me.

I only ever wanted you to listen.

I thought I was doing the same...

Clearly not.

I never wanted to be that person to you.
So, if you like rumble floofs (purring kitties), you should check out the raffle that VelenieAdopts is having until the 10th!  You could win your very own adorable kitty.  I just bought my first one, but I can absolutely see why iLantiis has as small army of them.

Check out the raffle here:
50 Watcher Raffle

If you decide to get a floof of your own, drop my name, just like I'm dropping iLantiis's for showing me!

My car decided to not want to function, so I'm without that until I can get it fixed...
And due to that, I had to miss work the other night.  It cost me my job.  I cam currently unemployed...  I can call tmrw to try and plead my case and ask to have my job back, though.  Here's hoping.

In the meantime, I'm going to try offering $10 chibi sleeper commissions to try and off-set the cost of fixing my car and having no job.  Help a poor girl out?

:new:We are simply waiting for a call telling us we can move in.  It's stressful just waiting for that call!  :crying: We do know, now, that we will need $300 to deposit in order to have Onyx and Derpy (our furbabies) on top of almost $900 for first month/deposit just to move in.

And, with that in mind, I'm open to commissions right now.  I'll do an ACEO sized piece of art for you (of pretty much whatever you want) for the following prices:
$5- pixelled doll/room/item/etc. : Pixel Folder link
$5- inked sketch :  Little Castiel by kenlybop
$10- colored piece : Merry X-mas 2015 by kenlybop
$25- finished piece (inked or colored) that gets mailed to you!

Help a girl out?!  Please pass this around to anyone you know who might be interested, puh-leez?!

Almost Time!

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 20, 2017, 2:58 PM


So, the good news first.

I have my bariatric surgery in one week!  Monday, March 27th at 9:55am!  Time and date are set!  I had to do my pre-op stuff today.  Bloodwork, talking with the anesthesiologist, seeing my nutritionist, filling out paperwork...  You know, the norm.
I'm beyond ready for this.  I've had people asking me for two weeks now if I'm nervous.  No.  I'm not.  I'm ready.

Would anyone be interested in seeing 'progress shots'?  Mind you, I don't blame you in the slightest if you don't.  I don't.  I hate cameras.

Now the bad news.

This past week has been really hard on me.  My great uncle passed away on Monday in a freak accident at his garage.  Somehow, he managed to catch himself on fire...  No one's quite sure what happened or how, but now no one will ever know, either...  Rest in peace, Uncle Harry.  <3

In the other bad news front, I am currently, as of Friday, on indefinite lay-off from work.  It's really slow there right now and I was in the first wave of lay offs because of it.  Granted, it couldn't have come at a better time, due to the surgery, but it still really sucks.  I have bills to pay, after all.

That's all the news I have for now.

Deviantart Rant

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 24, 2017, 3:55 PM


So.  Duryn found a charge on our bank account today from Deviantart for $15.  We didn't make any purchases.  I know a lot of people would be "Oh, it's just $15.  Big deal."

It's a big deal to me.

I don't make enough money for them to just take it whenever they want to.  And I'm not just talking about DA.  I'm talking in general.

Not only did I find this charge, but then I went on a search of well over an hour's worth of my time trying to find a way to deal with this through the website.  I tried going to the help desk chat, but found no one but myself in it, and a lot of very unhelpful subject lines and links in the actual help area.  It finally took stormnicki GOOGLING how to submit a claim to them in order for us to figure it out!  Google had to be used to navigate Deviantart.

There is just too much wrong with this, as far as I'm concerned.

I don't know if anyone else has had a similar issue with any of the steps I've had to go through to TRY and get help...

I've seen some awesome adoptables popping up all over the place and was thinking of offering my Reywyn species as one, if anyone would be interested...  I've been working on fleshing out their species and world again...  I had a huge file with everything I could think of in it but it seems to have disappeared.  So, we're going from memory and making up crap as we go.  :P

A couple refs of them are in the poll I posted.  Here's the link to it:

Would anyone be interested in one?

So, I was thinking of offering my $5 reindeer again this year to help off-set the prices of the season...  And because I know people like them.  Would it be something you'd be interested in?  I can do them in a few different colors this year, including 'unnatural' colors.  All you have to do is ask about a color and I can (hopefully) accommodate it!  If there's enough interest, I'll create an order form for people to fill out.

I'd love to do them in exchange for points, but the $5 is basically the price of shipping, so you're more or less getting a free plushie reindeer...

If it's something you'd be interested in, please let me know!  I haven't sold them for a few years and I'm kind of wanting to make some more.

These are what I'm talking about:

So, I don't think anyone online (or at least here) knows about what I've been going through in the recent bit of history.  I'm working on going for bariatric surgery.  In layman's terms, I'm going to get stomach surgery to lose weight.  Yes, believe it or not, I can benefit from this.  

For many years, I thought I wasn't heavy enough to consider doing this for many years.  I had always thought you had to be grossly overweight to be considered for surgery, but that's not the case at all.  They go by your BMI.  Mine is 37, which puts me in the realm of allowance.  I have to lose between 5 and 10 pounds, per the doctor, but the psych doctor I saw said it'd be better if I could lose closer to 15 pounds.  The only downside is that I have so much problems losing it to begin with, so even though 5-15 pounds doesn't sound like a lot, it's been a very long hard journey so far.  I've only lost a few pounds so far and I've been doing this since...  I want to say July-ish.

So far, I tried the South Beach diet, going strict phase 1 for two weeks.  It was hard, I'll admit.  When you are low income and then the stupid welfare system wants to leave you with $16 a month for foodstamps, it makes it incredibly hard to continue to eat right.  Healthy food isn't cheap.  With all the appointments I've been having to get all the pre-op screening out of the way, I've been missing copious amounts of work, which means my paycheck is being drastically cut.  I'm used to 50 hours a week and when I'm being cut to 40 and less, it's hard enough to pay my bills, let alone buy the stuff I need to eat to eat correctly.  I've still been doing what I can, though.  My mother has been trying to help by making sure she makes stuff for dinner that I can have, if I don't make dinner myself.  And to answer that unasked question, yes, Duryn and I still live (or rather, are once again living) with my parents.

I've gotten pretty much all of my pre-op stuff done as of now.  I still have one support group I have to go to and still need to lose the 10-15 pounds...  I'm still struggling with that...

For All You Crystal Animamates Out There!

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 14, 2016, 4:15 PM
So, I've been toying with a few ideas for artwork lately. It's all geared toward doing more SMOC art, of course. However, some of it I need help with. That's where you come in, my lovely fellow CA's.

I own Chalcedony Mudpuppy in the :iconcrystalanimamates: group. Her primary color is a light green.

I want to do one of those 'wheel' pictures like Naoko did with the scouts. I'm figuring on at least the ten image, but am gearing more toward 14 or so.

This will go with the main color, not the secondary one. So, light green is already spoken for, with Mudpuppy. This is going to be a first come, first serve kind of thing, so if you don't make it, don't feel too bad.

I also can't promise how long this project will take...

These are the colors I need:

Red-
:bulletorange:Orange-Yellow Topaz Dingo :iconblackwoodsun-studio:
:bulletyellow:Yellow- Grossular Lemur :iconmadwon:
:bulletgreen:lt. Green- Mudpuppy :iconkenlybop:

:bulletwhite:White- Howlite Direwolf :iconunderbellysenshi:
:bulletwhite:Grey/Silver-Jet Ermine :iconjateshi:
:bulletyellow:Brown/Gold/Cream- Blue Topaz Leopard :iconphinyxrose:

So, help a girl out?!

Also, if I don't get all the spots filled, I think I'll do multiples of colors.  So!  That means that even if your color was taken already, you still have a chance!!

Things about me:
  1. My favorite colors are purple, black and silver.
  2. I have never NOT had at least one cat.
  3. Every year I turn an odd number, they seem to find something new (medically) wrong with me.
  4. I live at my parents' house and have for the past two years.
  5. I love tea.  I'm a fan of trying different flavors.
  6. I don't watch MLP, but I have OCs in the fandom.
  7. I am a HUGE Sailormoon fan, but have very little merch (hand-made or purchased).
  8. I have PCOS.
  9. I love nail art and have a shared DA account with my mom (KHND) but we don't post as often as we should...
  10. I've been married for 8 years on August 30th.
  11. I am absolutely addicted to my niece.
  12. I'm the oldest of 4 children, and the order goes girl, boy, girl, boy.  And if you take the first letter of our middle names in girl, boy, oldest, youngest order, it spells LAMP.
  13. I am a mother, but have no child to prove it...  He would have been 4 this year.  :crying:
Questions:
  1. Favorite Music? I'm eclectic in my music tastes, so it really depends on the day and my mood.
  2. Reading physical books or digital? I prefer the physical form...  Something about being able to touch and smell my book...  But if I have to read it digitally, so be it.
  3. Writing or reading fanfiction? I've dabbled in writing, but I never seem to get very far...  I like reading good fanfics, though.  I'm friends with a great writer, in fact.
  4. Pets? Yes or No? Of course!  Two cats, as it usually has been my entire adult life.
  5. What quirk do you have that drives others crazy? When I get bored/too tired, I start doing random things and making odd little noises just to occupy myself.
  6. Odd or Even? Odd.
  7. Favorite Gum? Hmm...  I'm not really a gum person.
  8. Fall or Spring? Why? Hmm...  I prefer summer, honestly.  Fall starts getting too cold and spring starts too cold.  Although, both are beautiful in their own right.
  9. Going to the Beach or Hiking in the woods? I'm kinda body-conscious, but I love the beach.  Hiking in the woods is beautiful, though.  So, depends on how I'm feeling on any given day.
  10. Favorite animal? Felines.  Any kind.  Take your pick.
  11. Strangest thing anyone asked you? "Could you have a tapeworm?"
  12. Favorite Animated Character? Oh gosh...  You want me to pick ONE?!  I don't think that's possible.  Instead, I could make a list, but then this journal would be three times as long.
  13. Favorite time of day? Whatever time it is when I can sleep.

My questions:
  1. Favorite movie?
  2. Would you read a book that has 'normal' animals as the lead characters?
  3. Your thoughts on Minions?
  4. Dragons or unicorns?  Why?
  5. What is your favorite genre?
  6. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
  7. Do you believe in reincarnation?
  8. What is your favorite piece of your own artwork?
  9. Who is one of your favorite artists on DA?  Show us one of your favorite pieces by them.
  10. Do you take any medications?
  11. Left or right Twix?
  12. Vampires or werewolves?
  13. Share one of your favorite Youtube videos (I know it's not a question, but that's ok).

Also, please keep in mind my previous journal entry...
Need Not GreedSo...  Last month my insurance lapsed.  Boo!!  I was without car insurance for 20 days.  The fine for that is $8 a day until insurance is restored.  So, that's a fine of $160.
Guess what I don't have.
$160.
I was hoping I could get some quick commissions to help me pay this so I can get back and forth to work all legal-like.  And whatever other driving I need to do.
In this vein, I'm offering $10 single character traditional art commissions.  This can be chibi or 'normal', I don't care.  I can just ink it if you want to color it, or I can color it as well.
Please consider helping a fellow artist out?  I will, of course, take more commissions than I need all at this $10 flat rate price.  If you would like more than one character, each will be the same flat rate.
So, if you want a picture with three characters, it would cost you $30.
I'll be taking these until I get the fine money, of course.  And perhaps longer.  We'll see.
