This month the mid-month article is a bit early because I'm due to give birth in TWO days!! So odds are that I will be too busy to publish it on the 15th.

It's hard to stop cold turkeyHi girlitas and boyitos,
My CV term is over
From what you can probably the icon next to my username has been changed from a heart to a medal, that's because my term as an Artisan Crafts CV is over. Do not fret though, I still plan on keeping active in the Artisan Crafts community and helping out on %CRArtisanCrafts as much as I can. This means though that I do not feature DDs anymore. If you wish to continue sending suggestions, make sure to send them to either ^Brookette or ^cakecrumbs.
I'm nesting so hard right now
For those that don't know, I am expecting my second baby any day now. The latest he will come out is in three weeks. The wait is killing me. I hate not knowing when I will go into labour and almost die (yeah, I'm pretty dramatic). So in the meantime, I'm trying to keep myself as busy as possible.
Future project? maybe.
I was browsing etsy today and I realized that most things that I wanted to buy I could do myself because I have the supplies and the skill

I got a bracelet custom made by kayanah!!I just want to share my pure happiness with you guys and gals (I would have shared it earlier but my camera is possessed by demonic forces and will only comply to my demands sometimes.
So last week ~kayanah made a custom bracelet for me and I received it yesterday!
I love the colours!! okay so I chose them, obviously I would like them, but I didn't know how shiny and pretty this would actually turn out to be.
Look at this beauty! And I also think I would make an excellent wrist model if my wrists weren't crazy puffed up right now (I blame the pregnancy).
~kayanah is a real doll to work with! She also specializes in custom made work so you should definitely check her out because she is truly awesome!
Seriously, do it. Get your Christmas shopping done!

As some people have known, I've been having a few Giveaways on Tumblr this season. There's always people here on Deviantart who say they can't participate because they don't Tumble :[.
So I decided I will have one last giveaway for my watchers here on Deviantart.
I'll use a random number generator ( on this journals favourite list) and the winner will get one throw pillow of my artwork of their choice:
Or anything else in my Featured Folder on a throw pillow case example below the obnoxious thumbnails :3

How to Make a Good Profile PageHow to Make a Good Profile Page
Learn some helpful tips to ensure your profile page is appealing to the masses!
written by `miontre for Community Week in %projecteducate.
Quite simply, the way you present yourself is important. People make decisions about other people based on the way they present themselves. You know this is true because you do it yourself. There is no shame in this, because it's natural human behavior: we simply do not have the time to make decisions about each and every person we encounter from scratch, so we have to make some decisions based on how they present themselves. One such judgments made in this way is how worthwhile a person is - through this, we don't learn about a personality, but rather how long we are going to hold interest in this person.
If there's one thing which makes me uninterested in a person's profile, resulting in my immediate departure, it's when there's too much junk and mess on there - a result of careless presentation. :l
Don't you EVER give upPlease play the song while viewing this journal. I've tried my hardest to create a, well, a kind of experience for you. The music plays a crucial role in delivering that experience and a very important message. I promise you won't regret it. Just make sure the whole journal is loaded, turn on your speakers, push play, and start scrolling. The song is about 4 minutes so keep that in mind as you scroll. Please share this journal and help spread it's message!

PE: Creating art on CommissionPE: Creating art on Commission
At some point in your career as an artist, you'll be asked to create artwork on commission. Whilst it's a wonderful feeling, being able to make money creating art, it's completely different than selling a personal piece you previously completed - accepting a commission means entering a temporary relationship with your client. As simple it may sounds, there's a lot to satisfying customer's needs, sometimes the best you can do is to say no. Being picky regarding which commission you accept is not a bad thing, but try not to automatically turn down commission because it seems to be violating your artistic integrity, it's hard to survive without paid jobs.
✐ 1. Communication and flexibility
This is the key aspect to being able to work on commissio
