I forgot to create and schedule a 15 under 15 feature last week before I left on vacation, which is soooo embarrassing! I hope this week will make up for it though, because I've got 15 really lovely pieces of artwork to share with you! There are several quite amazing new artists included as well, and I highly encourage to check them out and give their account a watch! Hope you have a lovely weekend!
15 Under 50 Feature 18 + Update
I'm back with another edition of 15 under 50! Its been a weird last couple of months personally, filled with both wonderful and uh not so wonderful things. I've been trying my best to get in a better place mentally this year, and some days I feel as though I'm truly making it. I feel like me, productive and filled with joy for the small things but others just oof. I'm really struggling with brain fog, I'm not sure if its a result of having covid in January or simply the amount of anxiety and grief I've dealt with this year. I tend towards the latter because it does seem to lift when I'm doing better. My coping skills have (unfortunately for my bank account) turned back towards collecting and I have a really nice vinyl collection now as well as too many books to fit on my bookshelves, oops! Towards the end of October, there was an incident where I had to call the cops because two young men were at the end of my driveway yelling hateful things and then *coincidentally* like 30 minutes
September-November 2023 DD Roundup
Trying to get back onto a DD feature roll, it's not happening yet, but I've already scheduled 4 DDs for December, so that's something. Hope you enjoy the art I've featured over the last few months! Also, one that the artist set to watchers only after I featured it: https://www.deviantart.com/osphilia/art/Zoe-by-Julien-Sunye-on-www-OSPHILIA-CO-968473642
Spooky or Sweet?
I wanted to share some lovely Autumnal pieces I've come across recently - some spooky and some sweet (and a few that I would argue are both)! Autumn is my favorite season, and we've finally gotten a couple of cooler mornings recently that have really put me in the mood - for Fall that is. I hope you enjoy :heart: I have a couple more fun things to share soon!
15 Under 50 Feature 17
She's bacccckkkk~ But for real, sorry for the extended break on 15 under 50. I was really not doing well from a mental standpoint for a bit there. Too many hard things for my brain to deal with, and it just genuinely didn't feel like it was ever going to get better. However, I have made a sincere effort to MAKE it get better. I have been trying to do things I enjoy again, as well as working harder to take care of myself. I was looking at life as "which hurdle do I have to clear next?" but a friend reminded me that this wasn't the way to look at life. I went and finally saw the Barbie movie in theaters, I went to a photography presentation with a friend, I'm getting into embroidery for the first time, and I even made myself an Autumn moodboard to get the most out of the season (Fall is my fave, like most basic girls out there lol). All of those things brought a lot of happiness to me. I'm also enjoying the day to day, listening to vinyl, cooking dinner, going on walks with Seren
