:icongreenheartplz: HELLO! :icongreenheartplz:
And welcome to my page!
I'm Julia, but you can call me Kiwi as well. I come from Finland,
I love art and I'm always up for meeting new people!

I've been on this site for quite a while and know a bit of how things work around here,
so please let me know if there's anything I can help you with green heart bullet by to-much-a-thing

To make the perfect kiwi cocktail...
Be sure to include the fruit, not the bird
And remember;
Shaken, not stirred

So. Um. Hello?:bademoticon: 
I still don't know what made me log on for the first time in a year(?), but here I am and thought I might as well let you guys know what's up.

In a nutshell, I got more actively involved in projects IRL, such as volunteering for a cat shelter, festivals and the red cross as well as political communities. I didn't have time to volunteer both online and offline, so I put DA on hold, but it didn't take me long to figure out I much preferred the face-to-face kind of volunteering.

I love the DA community so much and I can't tell you how much respect I have for the people who keep it going, but it's not for me anymore. And I quickly realized without the community part of DA, there wasn't much left that interested me in the site.

I apologize to all projects and groups I didn't notify before I left. Hope those of you reading this understand :heart:

I hope you're all doing well, I miss all of you and I will keep my account up, as I definitely think I'll want to come back to it one day. If anyone wants to connect/chat outside of DA, hit me up with a Note :huggle:

I'll be around for a few days while trying to sort things out with I-Heart-Colors (if anyone is interested in helping out with the group, just let me know *hint hint* :eyes: ), so feel free to talk to/yell at/tackleglomp me :giggle:

Take care everyone!

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda
:iconwhitebook: suggested by sesam-is-open
Autumn Song by WhiteBookSide by Side by WhiteBook A Crying in a Morning Dew by WhiteBook
"Marta is a very lovely and talented photographer from Portugal with a deeply spiritual side. Her beautiful works are a reflection of her delicate and graceful inner nature and when you visit her gallery, you find yourself instantly drawn into her world. Every work tells a story and gives the viewer a special look at the universe through her eyes!

In addition to her artistic talent, Marta is a warm and generous soul with a giving heart. She is extremely supportive of her fellow artists throughout every step of their creative journey and for this, she absolutely deserves to be called an angel!"

:iconjocelyner: suggested by IllyDragonfly
The Survivor by JocelyneR Lovely Dahlia by JocelyneR Coming  from the forest by JocelyneR
"Though she hadn’t officially earned her wings in this award project, most of the people on DA already view JocelyneR as an angel. The simplest things make her incredibly valuable, for example, she is really kind and welcoming to all deviants. She has countless favourited artworks, and also takes the time to leave some constructive comments on them. Jocelyne also writes long features talking about other people, including underrated artists, and also devotes her time and points on her watchers and friends.

She is a wonderful friend to many and as you check her profile, you’ll see a huge list of them with Jocelyne promoting their artworks and themselves. She also takes time to do the same for projects. She’s a really nice, loving and humble person, always trying to return the kindness she received, and taking the time to answer or thank every person individually. Those people who have ever met Jocelyne, know that every word written above is true."

Blue Petals and Owls Keychain by SavageFrog  Lil Silver Fishies Swimming in the Sea by SavageFrog  Seabreeze Blue Earrings SOLD by SavageFrog
"If you ever get involved with dA community, meeting Froggy, or at least hearing her name comes automatically. If you get to see her among people, you’ll learn soon enough that she’s the sort of person who will make your day with her random acts of kindness and the positivity she has in spite of difficult times. Froggy’s an enthusiastic forum commenter and is always willing to guide people to what they need, and also to introduce new members to the world of DeviantArt. Generally, she’s always been kind and supportive to everyone she meets. She’s also featuring projects that focuses on finding good people in our community, and helps other artists to get exposure through her art features. She also offers llamas and critiques to anyone who needs them, and does a great job at providing constructive criticism. Froggy also does commissions to help deviants who are in need and donates all the proceeds and is always there for the ones she loves! She IS an angel, there is no question about that."

waiting by Arichy  Crystal by Arichy <da:thumb id="526224040"/>
"Arichy has to be one of the kindest and most helpful deviants on dA. Not only is she incredibly friendly, she helps out with many amazing and helpful groups on dA. First, she is an admin of dAWishingWell and regularly helps out to make possible that deviants would get what they wish for. She is also an admin in dAseniors and SeniorSelections - both focusing on the life of seniors and allowing them to do even more for the community than they have already and help them to expose their art, get featured, discover news articles or engage in projects. In addition to all that, she’s also an admin in projecteducate, where she helps host 'Community Events' that get the community to be active and involved – requiring a lot of organizing skills.

Finally, she is the founder of a fairly new, but amazing group called PixelChallenges. She, along with the other mods, hosts weekly challenges that motivate both new and old pixellers to practice their skills and improve. In spite of the amount of job she does, Arichy always finds time to reply to everyone. She is truly an angel, to be such a generous and crucial member of our community and such a kind, loving woman. Just strike up a single conversation with her, and you’ll immediately know how selfless and deserving she is of this award."
