Hello my friends! I hope that you are doing well today. Things have been crazy chaotic on my end, but I'm hanging in there, moving forward, and staying focused no matter what. I FINALLY was able to get through all the messages in my inbox I'm happy to say. Remind to try to not disappear for nearly two months ago. That wasn't fun to clean up. LOL Things can't always be helped, though.
I would just like to remind everyone that MY COMMISSIONS ARE OPEN. If you can't make a purchase, please help out by advertising for me. It means a lot and help me a great deal.
Here Are My Art Plans For Today:
Finish Updating Badge for TommyGK
Plan and Sketch Romin for Pretty-Angel
Edit/Refine Sketch of Human!Sapphirine at the Beach
Do you guys still like seeing WiPs? I started avoiding them for a bit because I felt they might be off putting for some of my viewers. I usually keep them in scraps either way. On the other hand, I like posting them so people can see what I'm working on. I haven't really decided how I feel about it completely. Your thoughts on the matter are appreciated.
Also, I'm deleting old journals. I'm going to be clearing out everything from the 2006-2013. I'm aiming to make my deviantART page look more professional and that was something I decided needed to be done because people don't need to see my early tween prattling. I'll probably be consistently deleting all journals that are over a year old from here on out as well unless they are important. I have like 90 pages of these to go through, so I'm going to be at it for a bit. Haha! I'll be making other changes to my page as well, but this is the one that's happening first. I'll let you know as I make alterations.
About Grimoire Rose: No, I haven't forgotten about it, but the crazy stuff that happened again set it back... again. I know I'm just as frustrated as some of you might be. It'll be alright, though. I'm still looking into getting my Patreon account running proper, and if some of the things I've been discussing my husband work out there might be a kickstarter coming for a huge project surrounding Grimoire Rose. I just have to get enough stuff together first, though before we do that. And I'd really like to get some more commissions in and done, plus finish the prize list I owe first before moving into too much of that. We'll see what happens, but I just wanted to give you an update on it.
A New Field of Art For Me? My husband has been trying to get me into sewing clothes and crafting various other forms of attire, and I'm seriously thinking about it. I love fashion, and I get a little giddy at the idea of making my own clothes. I know some about sewing, but I think I might want to learn more. The aim would not just be to design fashion, but to also create cosplay attire. So, I might be piddling with that some and posting what I work on when I decide what I want to do first. I mean, I've made things before because my mother insisted I learn how to sew, but I've not done anything more with it. My husband will be doing the photography for these pieces, and I'll probably let him post these shots to his account. We'll see how it pans out, but I thought you'd like to have the heads up.
Graphic Design - I don't normally post this kind of stuff because I feel it doesn't match my current gallery here, but I do design logos, banners, icons, and other graphics. Should I make another account for it, or would you be okay with seeing it here? I'm leaning toward the second account because I don't want this account to be cluttered up with it. Your thoughts?
Lastly, do you have a contest, commissions, or a group that you'd like featured? If so, feel free to check out the following journals and send me a link if you like to be included. I'll be cleaning them up today and start updating them regularly again now that I'm back.

And that's all for today folks! I hope you're having a great one.
