Okay, so I decided to start selling homemade lipgloss to try and raise money to buy my mom some dentures! I'm hoping to raise enough money to be able to get them for her for Christmas, but she needs them whether or not they're on time, so...

They're $2 each! ^-^

Here is an image link so you can see what they look like: frozenbleedingstake.deviantart…



So here are current availabilities:

"Gentle Strawberry" - has a very, very light strawberry flavor and will give a gentle pink tint to your lips, also has shea butter in it

"Mint Chocolate" - has a peppermint flavor and chocolate color which gives a VERY light chocolate tint. The mint makes it tingly like a lip plumper (though I don't know whether or not it works as one) and it has shea butter in it

"Wild Watermelon" - has a gentle watermelon flavor and light pink color that gives your lips a very slight tint with plenty of shimmer. Smells really watermelon-y when you put it on

"Spazzy Raspberry" - has a gentle raspberry flavor and gives a slight magenta tint with shimmer

Pink, Unflavored - these are very basic, they have no flavor and leave no tint on your lips but are great over lipstick or plain. Also have shea butter in them



If you could spread the word, I'd really appreciate it!

Shipping for these will be $2 for up to 5 glosses, $4 for 6-10 glosses, $6 for 11-15 glosses, etc. I really want to keep these affordable while still making enough money to help my mom out.


I also made a facebook event for this, so feel free to join and add your friends to help get the word out! I really appreciate everyone's support! You guys are amazing!! <3 www.facebook.com/events/176927…

Thank you to those who have already purchased lip gloss so far! I have raised a total of $16 so far and I have others who are planning to buy some soon. Thanks so much for the support so far guys! It may not be much yet, but it's a step in the right direction!




Also, check out my new account: :icondexstudiosdesigns:
Right now it just has stuff that I have on this account that is for sale, but some things will get posted there that won't be posted here. So if you want to see it all, check it out! ^-^

Hello everyone!! On Friday I got some super awesome news that I just HAD to share with everyone!! First, for those who don't know, I have been working two jobs since mid-May. I have been working at Wendy's for more than a year and was offered a part time job at FPHorak (a printing company) in May with the idea that I'd go full time at the end of summer/beginning of fall. Well on Friday, although I wasn't offered full time at FPHorak, I was offered 30 hours a week instead of 20, which means I got to put in my two weeks at Wendy's!! This will give me so much more free time and make life easier to juggle. I won't be having to figure out weird time schedules between jobs and when I may or may not have time for homework and art. That will free up roughly 3 hours (or more, if you include travel time to each job) each day! I'm so happy and I can't wait till I'm done with my last two weeks at Wendy's.

Aside from that, classes started about 3 weeks ago and that's all hectic, but I'm getting things settled in for the semester. I still have another book that I need to buy for a class during the second half of the semester (one of my classes was dropped, so I picked up another one), but it's gonna be REALLY expensive. It's a $200 book, and the cheapest I can find it anywhere is still around $150. I'm hoping that by waiting will closer to the beginning of class that I'll be able to get it cheaper somewhere.

I also may have to get a new car soon. Which is a bummer because I can't really afford it. I haven't been able to get my car in to my mechanic yet (it just started doing weird things) but I think the transmission may be dying...which would be really expensive to fix. Or it could be the clutch, I dunno. It has something to do with shifting gears. About a week ago it wouldn't shift into reverse, and the other day it didn't want to shift into 3rd as I was going down the road. I dunno that much about cars, so I'm not exactly the best person to be trying to figure out what's wrong, but shifting has something to do with transmission, and Dodges tend to have issues with transmissions. >.> But I'm gonna see if a transmission flush will at least temporarily fix the issue and then I'll prolly be looking for a new car. I just hope it can get me through the winter cuz I really can't afford a new car until I at least get taxes back...and even that's a maybe cuz I don't know how much I'll be getting back or if there'll be a bonus for being in school like I got last year. I hope so...

Don't really have much to say beyond that though. Life keeps on moving, even when small things happen, whether good or bad. I just keep rolling with things and I'm really happy that some of the more important things in my life are going the way I want them to.

I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their week!!

Okay, so I finally made a new account...I will still be updating this account and will be very active on it, but I will have my second account that will be more "professional" and will be aimed at the items I will be selling at anime conventions. Some will be uploaded here and some won't. Some items will also be removed from here eventually so they are only on one account. So here's the new one:

Alright, I have some super awesome news!! I got in to Artist Alley at Shutocon 2012!! For those who are interested, it is in Lansing, MI, March 16th-18th at the Lansing Center. If you go to their website and click on the artist tab at the left, you can download a copy of the hall layout. I'm going to be in space X, for those who want to come say hi. ^-^ I'm gonna have a TON of new stuff, so you can look forward to it. If you'd like to get more frequent updates, check out my facebook page: here. I still need 3 more people to like it so I can get an official username for it, so stop by and like me!! lol

In other news, my bf and I started letting the kitties into the bedroom at night. We always kept them out because they'd crawl all over us and get into things at night. They're doing okay so far (last night was night #2), but I'm REALLY tired. Every time I wake up I have a certain little kitten standing on my stomach, purring in my ear. Last night she started licking my face and biting at my arm, so I threw her off the bed. She's adorable, but not when I'm trying to sleep. >.>

Aside from that, I can't really think of anything else to say. My bf and I most likely aren't going to Youmacon because we won't be able to afford it, but we'll definitely be at Shutocon and Jafax next year. I'm so excited to be doing another AA. ^-^ Like really, you have no idea. I enjoy it a lot.

Well, I got some really sad news on Thursday...my oldest kitty died. He was a persian knot-ball (he wouldn't let us brush him) and his health has been on the decline for a while, so we knew it was gonna happen. I still didn't expect it to happen so suddenly and I wasn't ready for it. The hardest part was that my mom didn't call and let me know right away, so I found out almost a week afterwards. Her brain doesn't work so well anymore, so I can't be mad at her for it. She buried him down by the river too, so I can go visit when I want to.

It's really been like losing a little brother tho. He was always there for me when I was sick or sad. He somehow knew when I wasn't okay and he'd always come lay close to me, no matter where I was. The last time I got to see him I stopped by my mom's to pick up some stuff and his mouth was bleeding. It turned out he'd lost a tooth or something, so it wasn't too serious. I didn't figure that only two weeks later he'd be gone. He was always so grumpy cuz he was old, but he loved when we pet him (most people didn't like to cuz of his knots) and he really liked when I'd pick him up. He may have been grumpy and threw up a lot, but he was still a good kitty. I just wish he didn't have to leave so soon. We've had him since I was 5. We got him just before he turned 1, and he knew we were family.

fav.me/dkjsx2 fav.me/djxxr4 fav.me/dhg79k fav.me/dhg782

And that's just a couple pics of my Max that are already here on dA. I miss him so much...


But for some slightly happier news, I have some new art stuff coming in the mail. I'm really hoping it shows up today, but it might not be here till tomorrow. I think I'm gonna have a lot of fun with it, but I guess we'll have to see. You can look forward to seeing some once my stuff gets in and I manage to find a little time to work with it.

I also finished one of my classes last week. I did okay on the final and I should end up with a B in the class. It's really not where I wanted it to be, but it'll still be okay as long as I manage to get A's in the rest of my classes. The last class I have for the summer still has five more weeks to it. It's a humanities class about India, so it's at least kind of interesting, unlike the repeat classes I took that I already knew everything in. I haven't lost any points yet, so I think I'm doing good. There's a lot of reading for it tho, so that takes up a lot of my free time. Meh.

And for those who haven't checked out the facebook page I made, you totally should!! Just click the link below. ^-^ It's not fancy or anything, but now if you like my art you can show all of facebook!! lol

Hello everyone!! Have you been enjoying your summer so far? I dunno if anyone went to Jafax this year, but it was really fun. I really liked being in the Artist's Alley and met a lot of interesting people. I do have a lot of plans for future cons as to how to set up my table and stuff...like signs. lol Those are usually a good thing. I didn't make a ton of money, but I learned a lot from the people that stopped to look at things and from the other artists and how they had things set up. I may be doing AA again at Youmacon in November, but I'm not sure because they still don't have registration up for it. They even have registration up for AA at Shutocon already, and that's not until spring!! I'm thinking about doing AA there too, and it happens to be super cheap, which is great for a starving artist like me. XD It's $60, and it includes the table AND two passes for the con...oh, and you can get extra passes for really cheap too. I didn't get to check it out last year (err...this year, whatever) cuz I was busy with school and stuff around that time, but I'm hoping to have a lot more stuff ready before then.

On a side note related to Jafax...people really loved my stickers! I sold them for 25 cents each or 5/$1 and people went crazy over them!! They thought they were super cute, so almost every person that stopped and bought some got at least 5. I have more ideas for those as well...I'm going to sell them in sticker packs (just pre-cut stickers in mini ziploc bags) that will be priced approximately by how many stickers you get. For example, there may be a pack of kitty stickers. The original set had 12 stickers, so it would sell for $2. I would also still sell the individual stickers, but I had them all laid out individually, which took up a lot of table space. I think next time I will put stickers in baskets (one basket for each animal) and let people go through them to pick what they want. I guess we'll see. ^-^

Also, Monday was my birthday!! Yes, I'm a firecracker baby. And because my bf is so absolutely awesome, he got me a Wacom Bamboo tablet!! It's the pen and touch one, which a lot of people recommend. And I didn't even ask for it! He just knew. ^-^ I've practiced with it a little bit, but it'll definitely take some time to get used to. It's pretty weird right now, but I'm not doing too bad. I'll prolly post my practice pic later for everyone to check out and then move it to scraps later. If anyone has any helpful tablet hints, I'd love to hear them!! I already have two buttons on it set up for ctrl-z, so...yeah. I've only got gimp to work with it right now (and I'm a noob at gimp, so I'm really not liking it) and I want photoshop back. Unfortunately I don't have the money for it right now, and the only version I have that I could install is too old to work with a tablet. So for now I'll do with gimp and see what can come of it. Hopefully I get better with it soon. ^-^

And to those who have been waiting for commissions/requests/prizes, I should have time for them very soon!! I just finished two of my classes (which I got A's in...yay!), but I still have a third one and another one that just started last week. The third one only has a couple of weeks left (wait...one after this week...I'm in week 9 of 10, and the week ends on Friday) and after that I will only have one class, so it should be a lot easier to find time to work on stuff. I really appreciate how patient you've been about things!! I wish I was done with school and could focus on more art, but I've still got a year left...just one tho!! (as long as I can get all of my classes...they're all set up for the whole year, but a couple of them have issues and I gotta hope that the issues get resolved)

Aside from all that, I don't have much to say. I'm hoping to do a cosplay or two at Youmacon, but I gotta see if I have enough time to put it together. Stupid school takes up so much of my time. ^_^;;;

Alright, I know I don't have that many watchers here in MI, but Jafax is almost here!! It's less than a week away now!! I'm working hard getting last-minute things put together for AA and I hope I'll be able to get at least a few new things out before then. I'm sure everyone has noticed the flood of stickers as of late...I haven't had much time for anything at home, but I've had spare time at work to play in Illustrator, so I made some stickers to sell. Just gotta do the final sticker-making part... ^_^;;

Also, I made a facebook page for my art!! You can check it out here Please add it to your likes if you're interested!! I haven't gotten around to posting any pics yet, but so far it will be what's in my gallery. ^-^

If you show up at Jafax, let me know it's you!!

Okay, so I kinda haven't updated this in a while, but I've been really busy with my summer classes. I'm taking all online classes while working two jobs and it's pretty rough. I don't have much time for anything besides school and work, but I promise I'm working at things. I have some prizes that I need to get working on as soon as I have the free time to do it because I don't want to make people wait too long. Hopefully I will get a little time this week to work on things since I have one less homework item, but only time will tell.

In other news, about that second job....I got a new job at a place about 12 minutes away from my boyfriend's apartment (where I'll be moving in very soon). I'm doing programming at a printing company, oddly enough, so I get to do a little art stuff there every day, even though it's not my own.

Jafax is also just a month away and I still need to crack down and do work on some stuff to sell there. I just need some freedom from homework...it's driving me insane. We've also had some really crazy storms the last few days. Yesterday we had dime-sized hail and it looked like a bunch of little snow piles. It was crazy because the storm only lasted for maybe 20 minutes, but it was really cool. The only sucky part was that it knocked out the internet. I guess it blew up a transformer down the road too, but we weren't affected by it.

Alright, now I'm off to get ready for my second job of the day...yay! (not really)

I hope everyone is enjoying the warmer weather and be on the lookout for more new art coming soon!!

Yes, that's right, my 11K kiriban was caught spot-on by roflstomp2!! Congrats!! He has won a free commission from me for catching it and has decided on a Hamtaro plushie!! Thinking about Hamtaro brings back memories...lol

For those who are wondering, my next kiriban will be at 12K pageviews!

I will also be uploading some new stuff (FINALLY...I know I've been saying it for a while now) very soon. I plan to upload some new things as well as some updated images for some other things. There's only TWO WEEKS left of the semester, and I'm really excited!! I have one project due tomorrow and then it's finals next week. Wish me luck!!

Some good news...it's finally nice and warm her in Michigan! The temperature hit 87, which is crazy because we had a huge snowstorm just a week ago. It feels nice to not freeze my butt off. XD

I don't really have much else to say, so I hope everyone enjoys their week and keep a lookout for my next kiriban! ^-^

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe. All mimsy were the borogoves and the momeraths out grabe.

Just something random to start with. lol Hello!! How is everyone doing?

I just wanted to post a quick journal reminding everyone that my kiriban is at 11K pageviews, which is now less than 100 pageviews away!! I also will be finally posting some new stuff soon because there are only two weeks left in the semester after this one. I'll be so happy when classes are over. I have one final project due tomorrow and another one due next week, then the week after is just final exams. >.> Don't wanna do finals, but meh. At least its almost over, right?

I also wanted to let everyone know there is going to be a giant art trade going on in my club, TradersCorner and it will be starting in May. If you're interested, feel free to head on over and say so. You don't have to be a member to join, but I'm always happy to add more heads to my collection.......*ahem*, I mean more people to my club. XD

In some random news, we had a freak storm yesterday. It was just a little bit on the chilly side with a slight drizzle. I headed out with my boyfriend to meet his family for lunch in the neighboring city. We stopped for gas and by then it was raining hard. We pulled back out onto the road and barely got 100 feet before the rain turned into giant slush balls!! It looked like giant balls of snow-fluff falling, but it was actually slush. We had to stop at walmart to get a card for his mom and we were getting pelted with slushballs walking inside. We were there for maybe five minutes and when we got out to his car it was already covered in a pretty thick coat of snow. And we were too from the short walk to the car. My coat is purple, and the whole front was white by the time we got to the car...and my pants too. I was pretty cold at lunch cuz I was so wet from the snow. lol Then we went and had a yummy lunch and the snow had mostly stopped by the time we left, but there were nice thick piles of slush on the roads (prolly a couple inches) and plenty of white fluff on the ground. Driving home wasn't very fun because of the slush and giant puddles...the car kept getting splattered with slush as cars would go by on the other side of the road. There was one point where we couldn't even see out the windshield!! It was all pretty crazy, but the snow is mostly gone today. Gotta love living in Michigan. XD

Just thought the story might amuse people. Have fun looking out for my kiriban, and remember you don't necessarily have to be right on to win! It will be whoever gets closest to 11K. Just take a screencap and send me a note if you grab it. Good luck everyone! Enjoy the rest of your day!!

Hello everyone!! I hope you all have finally been getting to enjoy some nice weather! We had some here for a while, but we got a nice snowstorm the other night...again. Schools were closed for two days. I still had to work though.

But in some other news...I received an email yesterday saying I made it into Artist's Alley at Jafax this year!! I'm really excited about it. Soon I'll prolly be going on an art rampage, so look out for lots of new stuff. I need to prepare for it. I also plan on doing a cosplay of Sakura from Tsubasa Chronicles (the one by Clamp). I'm not sure which outfit I'm going to do, but it'll prolly end up being the main pink one that she wears most of the time. I'm really excited tho, cuz this will be my first artist's alley ever! I hope people like my stuff enough...I worry that no one will want to buy anything.

Now to get onto a different topic...school's almost over for the semester!! I have just a few more weeks and a lot of final projects to do. I've got a few of them done (or at least mostly), but a few I've hardly started...like one that's due in less than two weeks. ^_^;; I know, procrastination is a bad thing, but meh. I do it anyways. I know I'll be able to get everything done.

My computer also went crazy (laptop). I erased a bunch of crap from it the other night that I didn't need cuz it was bogging it down and making it slow. It's an HP mini, so it doesn't have a lot of hard drive space and it gets used up pretty fast. Well, when I went to use it last night, my internet explorer was just gone. I could go start menu -> run -> iexplore.exe, but that's annoying and time consuming. I could run it, but there was no file I could click on. So I made my own file for clicking on. It may not actually be internet explorer that I'm clicking on, but it opens it just the same. Basically I put some code in the file and it tells internet explorer to open. Yay for being lazy and making cheap run files for programs that mysteriously disappear from computers! lol My bf looked it up and found that supposedly the only way to fix the problem is to do a system restore on the computer. Not happening. I'm lazy. Also, my laptop came with restore discs...but I have no disc drive. Dunno how that makes any sense, but whatever.

Okay, so now that I'm done rambling, I hope everyone enjoys their weekend! If anyone is going to Jafax this summer, I'll see you there! Look for me in AA. ^-^

Now here's some features for the contest I did in my club:

Hello everyone!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful valentine's day whether you celebrated it with someone you love or alone enjoying some time to yourself. I had a wonderful holiday and spent it with my boyfriend. He made me dinner Sunday night (salmon, crab cakes, and rice) because he had work all day Monday, and I took him out for dinner on Monday. I skipped my Monday class so I could go get my hair cut and do a few other errands because I also made flaming strawberry cupcakes. I'll post a pic later because they came out really well. But I got all dressed up and he brought me some flowers (not roses tho, cuz that's what everyone does for v-day and he wanted me to know I'm special...not the same as everyone else) and a cute card. We went to Ruby Tuesday's for dinner and it was super yummy. I have leftovers in the fridge to eat for dinner tonight.

Today has been yet another great day. I went to my first class this morning (boring as usual, but we got out a bit earlier than we normally do), then I went to lunch with my mom, grandma, and my grandma's friend Barb while my mom was getting some new tires put on her truck. We had chinese and it was yummy, and I have leftovers once again. They will probably be my lunch tomorrow. But when I came home and checked my school email, I found a letter about my financial aid award being updated at school. I went to check it out and found I had more state money added to my account for both semesters, so I will be getting another $1,000 very shortly. It will be a good addition to my savings account.

I really want to go out and celebrate. I've been so fortunate to have had such luck for the last couple of days. I want to share a little of my joy with everyone else and hope everyone is having great days as well.

Oh, and next week is my spring break for school! I'm really looking forward to it because it means I will have a couple days that I can spend with friends. I just have to make sure I get all of the work done this week that I need to...

Enjoy the rest of your day everyone! ^-^

Okay, so today I survived what many Michiganders are calling Snowpocalypse, Snowtorious B.I.G. and Snowmageddon. We had a big snowstorm last night and it was bad enough that all of the local schools (including colleges) closed LAST night in anticipation. Amazingly enough, even my work closed today, and one of the managers said that in the 20 years she's worked there, she'd only seen the place close twice for bad weather. I guess we can put this on in the history books then. The local mall opened at 1 (though many of the stores didn't open) and almost everything in town was shut down. Even one of the neighboring towns shut down government agencies for the day. Many schools already have canceled for tomorrow, but roads in town are alright now. A bit slippery, but nothing you can't get through if you drive safe.

Really, I think a lot of people are blowing this thing out of proportion. Sure, it's a bad snowstorm, and yes, schools and businesses should have been closed today because of the many 6-foot snow drifts and all of the car accidents. But we had a storm much worse than this when I was in high school that took out power for up to 7 days in some areas. Everything was covered in ice and I was lucky enough to have power back in just less than two days. A lot of people have even said that this is the most snow they've seen in their lives, but I think they're nuts if they've lived in Michigan for more than a couple years. We used to regularly get snowstorms where we'd get three feet over night. Then we would have a storm like that each week for two or three weeks in a row and have a ton of snow. There really isn't that much snow...it's all because of the wind blowing it around.

I was glad to have my car in the parking lot though. It made it so most of the snow blew over it. My bf and I had to dig his car out of the carport though. It wasn't too bad on the passenger side, but it wasn't possible to get in on the driver's side till I climbed through the passenger side and backed it out. Then we went to the mall. Which was boring. Cuz I have no money to spend.

I just thought some people might get a laugh out of the story, especially anyone that lives in the same region. And for those on the east coast, you may be the next to receive this storm, cuz it's still moving across the country. At least we're supposedly out of it now though...

Anyone who is also dealing with this crap, be safe out there! And go build a snowman or make some snow angels or something. That's always fun. ^-^

Okay, so no one caught my 10K kiriban, so I'm going for one at 11K. It takes a long time for my pageviews to go up, otherwise I'd do 15K or something. So the kiriban is up for grabs again!

Also, I have my first commission!! It's for 3 of my onigiri plushies. I still haven't gotten to start making them, but I should be able to find some time this week.

I started the winter semester for college on Monday as well. I have classes Mondays and Tuesdays and I've taken Sundays off work so I have a day to work on homework. The rest of the week I'm at work, but HOPEFULLY I'll be able to find myself a new job soon. That would be cool.

Hope everyone's enjoying the new year so far!! ^-^

So I was thinking about doing the buy one get one membership thingy... but I only have so many ideas for who to give one to. So...I guess I'm saying who wants one? It can be a late x-mas present or something. Leave a comment if you interested and I'll decide things from there. ^-^ There's only two days left for it, so if no one says anything, I'll just have to figure things out myself....

On another note, I hope everyone had a great x-mas!! ^-^ I had tons of fun with mine and ate a lot of food that my belly didn't like. I think I'm too used to eating processed and fast food, so eating REAL food for a couple days made my belly a little unhappy, as silly as that sounds. My bf and I spent x-mas eve with his family and came back to town to spend x-mas day with my mom. We went up to his parents' house on the 23rd and had a really yummy dinner when we got there. Then his mom made x-mas lunch for everybody (which was turkey and duck) and then we went to his grandparents for dinner, where more of his extended family was. There was more good food there too and lots of yummy dessert. We headed back home after everything so we could sleep in our own bed and then we had dinner with my mom on x-mas day. It was ham and mashed tatoes. She also made brownies and rice pudding for dessert. ^-^

As for what I got...my bf got me a wii (the special edition red one), my mom got me the inStyler, his family got me a bunch of clothes, and his grandma got me some comfy pajamas and a candle. I know it doesn't seem like much, but there was so much thought put into everything I got and that makes me really happy. If I'd just gotten a kitten for x-mas I would've been just as happy. lol I also got my bf the nookColor and he's headly put it down. That makes me really happy. ^-^

My kiriban is less than 100 pageviews away now, so keep an eye out for it!

Happy new year everyone!!

I just wanted to send everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! I figured I should give a quick update so everyone knows I haven't disappeared. I promise I won't do that.

First news: the fall semester is finally over! I worked really hard and I'm still waiting for grades, but I get a couple weeks to relax before the new semester starts. I'll be starting on the 3rd, but I'm hoping to get some time for art while I'm on break. Just gotta find time when I'm not working.

Second news: kiriban is less than 200 pageviews away now! Remember that it's 10K, and don't be discouraged if you catch it a couple views after because it might not have been caught yet. Winner will get a free commission! ^-^

Third news: I'm planning on doing artist alley at Jafax this year. I dunno if I'll be able to tho, since I've had so little time to work on the art I'd be selling. I know I'll have time after the winter semester, but I know that time will be limited, so I want to be prepared as early as possible for it.

Aside from that, I really don't have much to say. My club is growing quite well and I'm thinking about doing...something with it soon. I'm not sure what though, because I'm not quite sure what kind of contest or anything to do. If anyone has ideas, feel free to let me know!

I hope everyone enjoys the holiday season!!

Okay everyone, I don't think many people actually read my journals anymore, but I have a friend who is in need of your help. To say the least, the poor woman is in a devastating situation, and she and her sister-in-law are working together to try and fix things. They are selling star plushies for $10 each, and anyone that can't donate can still help by posting about their situation. Read more of the details here. Anything you can do will be much appreciated by them.

Alright, the art trade club is officially open! The name is TradersCorner though :icontraderscorner:

So please go check it out everyone!! It's gonna be lots of fun!


**Kiriban at 10K**
So, I had an idea for a club recently and wanted to get some opinions on it. I asked my friend, :icondemi-plum: to join me as co-founder and she happily agreed. She loves the idea, and as we talk more about it, I love it more and more too. So what does everyone else think?

The club would be called ArtTraders and would be all about trading art, be it clay, plushies, drawings, or whatever. It would be a place to display art trades you have done in the past and a group where you could get in contact with people that also want to do art trades. Everything would be kept at an adult level though. All trade choices would be up to you. I really don't know how many people even read my journals, but I'd like to see who would be interested. I can't do a poll like Demi can, but can everyone at least write a quick comment saying whether or not you'd be interested? I'd appreciate it. ^-^



In other news, kiriban is still set for 10K. It is slow coming, but it's getting there.
So...I didn't get a whole lot of people that seemed to be interested with the other journal, but I'm gonna do it anyways and see if more people are interested than said so...if you're interested tho, still let me know, cuz I'd like to see who might be interested. And any ideas for prizes would be helpful...I'm thinking for now...choice of a charm/figure? Pageviews are almost to 9K right now, so there's still another 1000 to go...good luck with catching it!

*Note: the winner will be whoever gets on 10K or the closest after it, so even if it's after 10K, you might still win. ^-^
