My Bio

Hello! My name is Karen and I joined deviantART back in 2006 as an art appreciator. Over time I have tried my hand at a number of different art forms, before eventually finding my place in emoticons.

Within the blink of an eye it seems to be August, and I'm really starting to wonder where the year has gone. I can't say I have a load of stuff to update this journal with, but I fancied an update nonetheless. I'm now well settled in the new house. In April/May I managed to finish unpacking most of my belongings, so it started to feel like it was my home rather than just a place I was living. In June I had the boiler replaced, which was an experience and a half, but I'm glad that's all done. I have the windows to replace and some work to do in the loft, but I'm just taking some time out to enjoy the house as it is before it descends into chaos again. I was also pleasantly surprised when I found a new hedgehog that visits the house. I was a little sad that I left the others behind when I moved, but I discovered him outside the shed one night and have been looking after him ever since. He's been given the nickname Oliver after one late night session where he threw his food bowls

Belated happy new year! I'm not sure where the first 6 weeks of 2021 have gone, but I guess it's time for an update. My biggest news this time is I'm now living in my new house :dummy: The sale took longer than I expected/hoped, but I picked up the keys at the start of December and left my rented flat just before Christmas. Overall, things are going well. Everything is taking a little longer than I anticipated - partly because of a lockdown in the UK and partly because fixing one job in the house often uncovers 3 more things to do. But I can start to see glimpses of what the house will look like when all the work is done, and that keeps me motivated to carry on. Most of the rooms are now painted, and after a 2 month delay I now have carpets in the upstairs rooms. This means I can properly set up my desk and start unpacking (rather than continuing to live out of boxes and suitcases) :la: . It's been a long process, but we're getting there! Whilst most of my items are still in

I quite often get asked how you add new community made emoticons to the "Add Media" feature on Eclipse. After wondering this for a while, I bothered to ask dA. TL;DR . . . You can't (at least not yet) "Hi there, Currently, there is no way in the new version of Deviant Art to add to the community emoticon gallery at this time. We understand that this is a feature you would like to use, so we went ahead and sent this feedback to our developers. Thank you so much for your time."

Thank you for the DD suggestion for the 'Emote Dentist'. I enjoy making these little guys and it makes me happy when they bring a little happiness to someone's day.

Seeing the DD this morning has made my day ;>) Again, thank you for the honor.

Peace, Cat

No worries. I've really enjoyed them all and glad I could help get it shared with the wider community :)
