All my stories, characters, and memories. They are so special to me. ;o;

I guess I wouldn't really care anymore if it ever happened, but man, I don't ever want to lose my memories! Never, ever, ever! For a person who clings to the past, whose main source of entertainment and connection to others lies in their memory, I just feel... I wouldn't be anybody without it.

It's a little bracelet. It's too small for me now but it means a lot. My best friend gave it to me when she moved far away. It's blue and has a heart with my name on one side and hers onto the other. I got it when I was 7. Another valuable thing to me is one of those tiny ball thingies. Me and a friend traded them at the end of grade 2 to make sure we never forgot each other when she moved away. I still have it.

A little piece of a blanket. It might seem strange, but hear me out. After i was born, my grandma, who passed away a few years ago, gave me a HELL load of stuff with little people and mushrooms on it, in autumn- like colors. I only have one big thing of it left: a box full of books. Since i was a baby i always kept the little piece of material in my bed. I was pretty wild, so it is a little... well... torn apart XD. And after all those years in light, it became almost white, with a few red spots on it. It has never been washed (EWWW GROSS! nope :3) so it has my smell. ATM it is under my pillow and i forbid ANYONE i repeat, ANYONE other then me touching it XD.

-i also pay alot of value to a plush of a chihuahua called Chico, based on a chihuahua who passed away. That same chihuahua also slept right next to me as a newborn baby so...-

Jeez long comment.

hmm, I think my non material things are most important to me, purely because if I lose them, there is no way for me to ever get them back. I mean, I could lose my computer, my tablet, everything, but my ideas are still there, and I can still make them happen no matter what. I'm not sure what I would do without them to be honest.

The computer hahaha
I don't know. I like my kitty Lighty, but I honestly don't think she's got that much emotional value to me. Maybe this drawing of a "Swagosaurus Rex" that my friend gave me in like 6th grade? That thing is pretty snazzy and makes me happy =P My friend and I stopped talking after freshman year because I changed schools and we ended up just drifting and I miss her, so the stuff she gave me is... nice.
I have this world that I've had since 4th grade and tons of books filled with stuff about it and the characters from it. I guess that's pretty meaningful to me. I deal with that world when I'm feeling really depressed, anxious, or bored so it's important.

It's cause all of my friends are on the internet, along with my boyfriend, plus I use it for art, writing, entertainment, and music.

I'd go outside more if I had anything to do lol.

Probably names, I had a cat called Zio and he passed away a few years ago and also my great uncle who I used to call Zio and one day a friend turned around and said that she was going to use the name Zio for her stuffed toy even if the only reason she knows the name is from my cat. I almost punched her in the face when she said she didn't care that it was my cats name and 'it was just a name' 
I might of been over reacting but to me that name means A LOT.

All my life my family members constantly take my stuff, including my mom and stepdad taking my money so i'm extremely possessive of anything that belongs to me like i have a mental record of everything i own and if something goes missing i notice right away so now it's gotten to the point where if someone takes something of mine i will hunt them down and retrieve it it could be a fucking candy wrapper, i'll still take it back and throw it away myself lmao

I have this little, ripped up pink stuffed animal dog from when I was maybe 3?
I still sleep with it every night even now, because I get extremely restless when I don't have it nearby. It used to be really soft, but because its been worn down over the years, the texture of the fur kind of changed to a weird, indescribable kind of texture. I have this problem where if I don't have anything to play with in my hands, I start picking the skin off my lips, so whenever it's around I just kind of run my hand over it.

I have two things that are the most emotional valued things.
1. Is a carved mouse that my great grandpa made. He passed away in August, and it means a lot to me.
2. My first Webkinz (type of stuffed animal brand or whatever) I got it from my great grandma, who is still living, but it means a lot to me, because I got it before she was sent to a retirement home, and started losing memory, and becoming confused all the time. It reminds me of how I used to always see her once a year when I would travel to Florida to visit family, and all the memories we shared (such as accidentally running into a bush on a golf cart xD) Now, when I visit her, she seems so confused all the time, and sometimes doesn't recognize people. But the good thing is, she always remembers who I am, and never asked who I was.

wow i wrote a lot xD

Hmm, I just draw a circle for the head, draw a line out of the circle and make the nose to it, and once the nose is there the mouth and chin just follow :0 I don't know, I never learnt it from anyone! It's just the way you see it in my Redraws :)

This is a confusing one for me, because I'd say that the most emotional valued things that I own are all of my stuffed animals, but the reason that I've put so much emotional connect to them is because each one has a story/character/concept attached to it. SO I DON'T REALLY KNOW HOW TO ANSWER THE QUESTION? 

Technically I suppose the answer would be non-material since its the stories that MAKES the stuffed animals have emotional value, but because you can actually touch them and I created the story based on the appearance of the object, then I have no idea.

SpitfiresOnIce Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm, because it's projected onto an object, I'd say material? Because it's tangible, and I think that the question itself automatically implies that emotional value of any kind projected onto a material item falls under material. :0
