That's right, my lovelies. You heard me. I am a published author. My book Walking with Monsters the first in a series to boot has been published and you can find it in print here :star: www.createspace.com/5363297 :star: On the kindle and every other e-pub reader you can think of here :star: www.smashwords.com/books/view/… :star: 
I admit the painting has been slow and almost non existent of late. It's not just that writing has taken over my every waking moment but the nerve damage in my neck and back just isn't getting any better. But I promise I will update this site eventually. I feel as though I have been ignoring my lovelies on Deviant art. So soon, my lovelies. Soon. Also I have jumped on the blue bird bandwagon. If you're interested you can find me on Twitter. My handle, or nickname, or whatever you call it is Naralim33.

Hello boys and girls,
Between health problems, a dead laptop, and much other craftiness that has consumed me (writing) I have not done much with the posting of new art. That's because when I paint, I am slow as a snail. But I just wanted to drop a line and tell everyone who actually cares about my art that I really appreciate it, and I love you for it. I can not say that I will be putting up a slew of new pieces but one every now and again maybe. I might even go crazy and post some of my writing perhaps. In the mean time, thank you for all of your love and support and where as I haven't thanked you enough already, I do certainly mean it.
Thanks to all who have dropped by my neck of the woods. Hope you like the fruit that hangs from my tree :star:

Whaaaaaa.... whaaaa..... that is right I am crying like a baby, a hungry angry baby! My computer is officially dead. I was hanging on to hope that my freind could fix her but alas no my mother board has bit the big one. I type now on my husbands computer Of witch I dispise by the way and hope that some miracle will come through and eventually I can get a new one.
So my lovelies I am afraid that paintings and updates will be few and far between as my husbands computer can not handle my photoshop.
David, my husband says that its a good thing he always liked my traditional painings better anyway, I had to remind him that I learned to paint on photoshop because we had small children and keeping paint in the house is nie impossibibble, and we cant really afford em anyway.
so I will do my very best to check messages and hover uselessly around every now and again, I hope I wont be gone too long I was finally getting my groove back :(
Just remember I love you all and thank you all sooooooooo much for the faves they make me feel so speacial. :heart:

It sure has been a while since I have posted any new art so I put up a few new pieces and ever a bunch of WIP's to prove that I still paint Im just super extra turtle slow about it because of the tremors in my hands. But with new art going up I started looking at a bunch of my older stuff, you know the hideouse peices that I thought were so cool before I really learned how to paint well, I'm thinking about deleting them. I might re-do a few of my favorite eventually but no promises on time frame. But if you like any old stuff you might as well save them now because sometime this week I plan on deleting a bunch. I would have done it today but you have to do them one at a time and frankly im just too lazy :P
Anyway my loves here is hopeing you like some of the new stuff and Im sure you wont miss the old. Tootles darlings

Well I have finally made it back to the big wide world that is DA! And how I have missed you all. I just made it through all the wonderfull faves and whatches and again I thank you all so much. I havent gotten a whole lot done painting wise as my health has gone wonky. Cervical spinal stenosis and lower back spinal stenosis, not fun. it causes severe pain in my neck lower back arms and hips, so sitting, and painting for long periods of time have been rather difficult but I have managed one or two peices that I will put up soon. and again thanks for all the faves and awesome things you guys said about my work it really helps me in these hard times. so be on the look out for new stuff :)

I know it seems like forever since I have really updated. Lately I have been going thhrough lots of medical tests and such. Problems with my heart. My hands are still shakeing pretty badly. They put me on medication for the tremors and it helps a little so hopefully I will get some painting done some time in the near future. The past few weeks I have been working on nothing but sewing projects, and as soon as I get batteries for my camera I will get pics of them set up. So I say a heartfelt thank you to all of those wonderful people who have stopped by my little neck of the woods taken a look around. I truly hope you find something you like.

The suckage continues. We are all settled in our new apartment in the new city and I absolutely love it here. Im waiting on taxes to get a new sewing machine. I have been hit with quite a few health problems of late. The latest of wich has really affected my hands, and that has seriously affected my ability to giggle. I havent really been able to hold a pen let alone the stylus for my tablet. Im going through physical therepy and hopefully that will help. I am working with an awesome group of physical therapists so I have high hopes im going to keep trying to paint and hopefully something will be worth posting .

In the meantime I just wanted you all to know that I love you. I thank you all for stopping by neck of the woods and checking things out. Hopefully with the colors of spring my creativity will come back to me untill then Tootles my lovlies.

This has been a really sucky six months. My husband lost his job we have moved twice. I got into a car accident and totaled my car now the cord for my laptop is broken. So I have not been able to finish the painting I have been working on for the past 2 and a half months I am hopeing that with the new year better luck and better days come flooding to me and my family. It took me so long to even want to pick up my pen and now all I want to do is paint and yet i cannot. Bah humbug if this continiouse my husband is in for a big suprise I will just anex his computer for a while. Any way that is that sad and boreing tale of why I have not put up anything new and colorful I hope beyond hope that that changes soon. I might go crazy and just post what I have of my current project as a WIP. Just so I can say that I accomplished something before the end of this horrible year.

To all those lovelies who have dropped by and wandered around my corner of the maze that is DA I want to thank you and hope that you like what my imagination lets my pen and computer bring to light. I wish all of you and yours happy holidays

Merry christmas too all and too all a good night

Well sort of! We are officially in our new apartment and I again have access to the interwebs WOOT!!! However I am sad to say that I have not finished a painting in the entire time I have been gone. I have started a few but none worth showing as of yet but I hope that I will eventually finish something worth showing off. In the meantime it is so good to be back. I have missed you all :)

I can't finish anything for some reason. I have started like six paintings and none of them have gotten very far beyond blocks and colors. Even sewing I started a kimono for my daughter and got halfway through it before I got bored and quit. For shame on me. But they are harder to make than I thought, well not so much hard to make difficult to dress is more aprapo (I have no clue as to how to spell that) Perhaps one day I will add to my page but alas not anytime soon.
Thanks for stopping by hope you like what you see :woohoo:

I have spent the last month or so so sewing like a mad feind. Because of that I have not made much progress on anything else. I have worked a little bit on a painting but havent actually finished it yet. My husband bought me a copy of Final Fantasy 13 and I have become a bit obsessed. Hopefully one day soon I will get off my but and do a painting.
In the mean time I wish everybody a great day.

I need sunshine and color!!! Its so dreary, I cant wait for the spring flowers and the warm sunshine. On the positive side I think I finally kicked my non productive streak. I'm actually working on paintings WEEEEE!! And I finished a quilt this past week. Its been a long time, hopefully I'll actually finish one of the paintings eventually.

When my Goose gets art block she just sketches and sketches until she feels like finishing one of them I'm trying the same thing here just sketching and sketching until I get inspired so far it almost worked twice.
If anyone wants to color the line art Ive been throwing up lately more power to you but please link back I would love to see your versions :)

Fairy's

Wed Jan 6, 2010, 10:46 AM
enchanted journal head

Hello all I am writing this journal to ask for help!!
I'm sure most of you if not all has at least heard of the new Tinkerbell movies, I love these new flicks for a few reasons but one of the biggest is the chubby fairy's. I am a big girl and it is so cool to see fairy's that are more my size. There are three larger fairy's a guy and two women. There is fairy marry and I believe the other is the summer lord. She is gorgeous and her dress is so cool.
Anyway i have scoured the internet with my lack of skill searching for a picture of the summer lord and can not find one of her anywhere. I know she is a very minor character and that is probably why I cant find her. I would very much like to make her costume, but I need reference and just having the movie play in the background isn't cutting it.
So I'm asking you wonderful and much more skillful people for a link to a picture of this character or a picture of her I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks again!

This year has been so very unproductive for me, so i admit I'll be glad to see it ending and the cycle begin anew. Im hoping this coming year will find me in a more creative mood. I cant wait for the return of the sunshine and the birds and the butterflies. Untill then I'll wish you all a wonderful start to the new year.

This is by far and away my favorite time of year. The crisp cool air, the pumpkins and most of all the candy!! :woohoo: I have been very lack luster this year though I dont know why, its partly depression and part laziness but I havent been able to force myself to paint too much.
I spent most of the last month or so working on costumes witch I have been bombarding you poor souls with too much of late. Hopefully this dark mood will go away soon  and I will get back into the flow of gloriouse creation! :)
