Not going to win but why not. One of my favorite watchers is having a contest. Go check it out or at least check out her amazing work!
Bad DreamI don't even know where to begin.... Have you ever had that moment where everything just feels like a bad dream? That nothing is in your control anymore? At the moment that's how I feel. For the few that know me you would know that my mom has cancer. And one that very few survive from. We thought she had been doing better. She was doing better till this weekend. We aren't sure what happened but we got the call this morning that her organs are failing. We just had to say good bye to her because she only has about two or three days left. I mean I've lost my grandparents before and other friends have lost family members but my own mother? I am not even sure what needs to be done really. I have a general idea but I mean I never really talked about with her. You know? I keep thinking this is a bad dream I'm going to wake up from and she's going to be right there ready to go shopping with me or go on vacation. It's not fair. Life just really sucks right now.
I knowYes it's been a while but I saw something on facebook that made me mad. If you look up Catch 'em All they have a lot of stolen work on there and are selling prints of people's work. Funny enough I wouldn't have realized had a friend of mine not liked the page and it featured a piece of art I had just faved a few days ago.
This Vulpix mirrored -> is the original
This is the stolen they are trying to sell.
They have a website as well. http://eeveetee.com/
See if you spot any stolen work and spread the word!
I'm Alive!!!*crawls up from a hole* I LIVE!!! Good gracious I realize I haven't posted a journal since July.... Lots have been happening... this year just hasn't been good. First my uncle passed away then my grandmother passed in July and just last month my other grandmother passed..... So yeah I haven't exactly had time to get on here except for a few things. I have been having to sort through a lot of things plus deal with other personal stuff. I'm hoping once the holidays hit everything will slow down.
How is everyone? I hope everyone is doing well?
Just no timeSo I have had like no time to do any art stuff. Why? Well my uncle passed away about a month ago and then my grandmother passed away not even three weeks ago and I'm still trying to get my feet back under me from the traveling and work. With little to no time I've basically fallen into a dark hole and trying to bring myself up back into the light. I do apologize for being away but I will be going on a huge fave spree to clean out my inbox.
TagSure why not because it gets me writing a journal.

Losing feeling....See the only down side to having a full time job is no time for free stuff like art.... which shouldn't be an excuse but shhhhhhh I'm going to use it any way. And all I do is sit in front of a computer all day and lose feeling in my butt because I have a crap chair that I still haven't gotten replaced..... It's literally been like 9 months since I've asked for a new chair because of the pain my chair now causes and my manager is ******* fill in whatever word you want. Basically he is a horrible manager who shouldn't be in charge of people. But I will hopefully be finding more time to be doing art stuff. I hope.
I'm alive!!Wow just realized that my last real journal post was back in *goes to check* February.... I knew that!! Any who what's been going on with me? Well things have been hectic what with mom recovering from surgery and me helping out around the house a lot more and her going back for chemo.... I kind of can't wait for this all to be done with so I can go back to a normal life and possibly move in with my boyfriend.
Any who as for art that has not really been on my mind but I have been working on the NanoEmo from like three years ago to try and finish that since I saw the previews of suicide squad and for some reason that made me want to work on that. So here is a little preview of what I've done so far
Click it you know you want to!
Any way how has everyone else been? I feel like I haven't talked to you guys in a while.
Been a whileSo yesterday I spent 12 hours in the hospital because my mom was in surgery to remove the cancer. She is in the ICU till hopefully tomorrow because there was a bit of a complication. I am exhausted didn't go to work and just don't have the energy to do anything art related. I will be going on a fav spree only to clear out my inbox. When mom gets out of the hospital I don't know how free I will be to even do much. I will poke my head in on a Valentine's day and then pop off again.
HelloSo I'm back kind of sort of. Real life has just been running me into the ground and I have a boyfriend who has been keeping me busy. I know I know those aren't real excuses but with mom's cancer it's just been very hard doing everything I can to make sure she is comfortable and not overdoing it and keeping up with work and life. I've been itching to do art but haven't had time but hopefully soon I will be able to carve out some time and do some art.
How is everyone doing?

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!

Some believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy

Printed Minky Reviewedit to add: yes the printed minky is washable! I didn't wash mine, but according to spoonflower "Wash separately in cool or warm water using a gentle machine cycle. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles." Although please don't machine wash a plush, ahah. Just the fabric.
So I recently got the chance to play with printed minky! Here's a sort of review about it
Bought from: spoonflower.com
Price: $28/yrd. Very expensive, but for a very versatile product of this quality it's definitely justified.
Shipping: Only $6 to Canada, with tracking, took about a week and a half to arrive once shipped, no duties. A+
File prep: spoonflower has very simple requirements that are easy to follow. I scanned my pattern pieces, cleaned them up and colored them, then I copied them into a file that was set to spoonflower's specifications (150dpi, set to the width of minky. I added length as I needed it). To make sure my pieces
