Bad news, guys!I quit sugar and it's doing amazing things for my soul and body! It's only bad news because the only sweet baking I will do will be around birthdays and never for my own home or guests.
Yeah, sorry, but really I'm not
I'm one of thoseI always told myself, I would never be one of those that disappear from deviantART without saying a word. I was a mom already, with tons of projects but I still could manage being an decent CV and bringing the community fun events (I hope?). It turns out that I'm a huge hypocrite. I became what I didn't want to become. Sure, I could blame the fact that I now have 2 children that depend on me or that I've been working more and more for my business but the truth is that I feel like an impostor. I lost interest in creating art. I start projects in my head but never follow through. I haven't even posted on my recipe blog in 3 months.
My favorite memories of being on dA is being a CV and creating events and articles. The Community is what I've always loved most, it's what made me want to become a Volunteer in the first place. So why did I disappear? I'm not sure. Does this journal mean I will come back and dedicate more time to the community as a member? I don't know... I feel li
Architectural ModelsAs a previous CV and as an Artisan Crafts enthusiastic in general, I feel that the Architectural Models sub-category of Artisan Crafts is often left out of the spotlight. Mainly, I think because it is not nearly as popular as say jewelry making or knitting.
I've always had a respect for architectural models, my first room mate had a huge city model that he built from scratch, he kept removing buildings and replacing them with new ones all the time. I could sit there on the floor of his room, watching him build and destroy for hours while we conversed about anything at all, it was therapeutic somehow.
Oh man, my life...First of all thanks for all the birthday wishes
I spent my birthday and most of last week in a hospital with my newborn. I can easily say it was the most stressful and worst time of my life. He caught a nasty virus and had to be hospitalized and put on oxygen. Other nasty tests and interventions were done to him to rule out any infections and keep his breathing under control. He got RSV and bronchiolitis so we were put into isolation with 2 other children that had the same virus. After 5 days (on my birthday) we got to go home. Félix is doing much better but we're not out of the woods just yet, he still have a nasty cough but it's getting better.
Sorry I can't and won't respond to messages and notes for a while. Hope you understand.
That white thing in Felix's mouth is a soother btw, not some horrible medical contraption, lol.
I've been busy..Hello beautiful deviants,
I miss you a lot. I wish I could be more active and reply in a timely manner to the billions of notes/messages that I received in response to my latest DD. I have about 792+ messages, notes and deviations in my message center to read.
The truth is, I log in for about 5 minutes everyday and end up having to get up again. It's hard to catch up. But I'm still here and don't plan on leaving!
I blame this adorable little guy
Can you see the cute little penguin next to him? Brookette lovingly made it for him.
Also something wonderful happened; I've been awarded my very own pair of wings!

New projectHey guys,
remember how I wanted to get back into jewellery making but being a Mom with a 3 week old is kind of hard. I've been working on this line for a little while. I'm still in the testing phase.

You can expect to hear more about that soon. Here's a preview of what's to come.
Farewell to the old and Hello to the new year2013 has been a very crazy year for me and my family. So much has happened but here are the highlights:
Right before the year began I became a CV for Artisan Crafts and was lucky enough to work side by side with Talty In February, I learned that I had PCOS. When it was announced to me, I was told that it was a miracle that I had gotten pregnant with Loïc in the first place and that there was no cure.Winter was rough for my family. My little Loïc got sick a lot.In April, drama happened and ties with long term friends were broken.A few days later, I learned I was 7 weeks pregnant! In your face PCOS! In May, cakecrumbs joined the AC CV team In July, my husband cut his finger and needed stitches. Also, we purchased our first home and had an ultrasound to that showed I was e
Felix Navidad, a prince is bornOn December 21st at 22:43, my little Félix was born after 4 hours and 30 minutes of labour. He weighed a massive 9lbs 11oz and measures 22 inches.
The labour went well but I'm really exhausted so I hope you understand if I take my time in answering comments and notes
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas

How to render MMD videos like a pro!
The DeviantArt MMD community is notorious for its drama and mini-conflicts. It has also been the one in which I've encountered some of the rudest people on the Internet. However, I have also been rather fortunate in being able to become acquainted with some of the nicest, talented and knowledgeable people I've ever encountered anywhere. Many of these have graced my gallery with their visits, comments, encouragement and attentions. And a few, perhaps some of the most talented, have graciously given me access to hard to get models, exclusive previews of their MMD work and even insights into their methods of doing things.
Occasionally, I am gifted with real gems and this was the case when garmus1 dropped a note in my inbox the other night. Apart from the depth of knowledge that he gives into his methods, he's also given me permission to share that knowledge with the rest of the community.
Now, I know that some of you will have, after reading only
Golden Age of IllustrationArt History Week
The 19th century marks a huge technology development, with printing techniques improving enough to make newspapers and books a truly mass-popular medium. Along with that, there appeared new opportunities for the illustrators. In the second half of the 19th century, the popularity of illustrated books and magazines reached the highest level recorded by that time and it eventually became the foundation to border the official beginning of the Golden Age of Illustration's timespan: 1880's. Formally it lasted until 1910's-1920's, with variations between Europe and North America.
The core illustrators lived a long time after this period and continued creating pictures in their style - which is defined as typical for the Golden Age. However, new styles and the slow decrease of popularity of book and newspaper illustrations (supported by the rising popularity of photography) after the World War determined the formal end of this age. The European illustrators were influenced mo
