Thanks. I haven't had time to even think about this because my friend's son is in critical condition. But I've filed for passport and plan to get the plane tickets tomorrow! Now I have to work up designs for 4 women and 1 male!
Art For Sale to Raise Money for a New HomeHi everyone,
I am trying to raise money in exchange for art, face painting, photo sessions etc so that I can afford first, last, security for a new home or apartment. (scroll to bottom) We have suddenly found ourself homeless after being served a 24 hour eviction notice.
Long story short: My husband totaled our vehicle, injured his back, and lost his job. He has been working towards a new career while I have been trying to keep up with all the bills.
Our mortgage was through Bank of America. They kept promising a modification, and kept losing my paperwork. Then they sold my note to Nationstar who also promised a modification. They approved my modification, sent me the paperwork, I filled it out and returned it, and then got a phone call saying, "Oops, we sent you that paperwork on accident and already started the foreclosure proceedings." They failed to stop the foreclosure proceedings, so assured me that their lawyers co

Welcome Mandi!One of my BFFs just joined DeviantART!!!!!! Please welcome MandiIlene with all the love that I know this community still has in her! She is a great artists and body/face painter. Plus she just rocks my socks off!
Oooh I Might Just Be BackOooh I like this new Sta.sh way of uploading. The processes doesn't take as long, so that means I am more willing to spend some time here to upload! Weeeeeee.... I'm BACK!
Selling PrintsI've sold on DeviantPrints for years, and have only made a few bucks, and I turn around and spend it on prints for myself. So now I am being much more gregarious with my camera and files, and uploading to SmugMug! It is much faster, and since I already have a pro account for my photography business, it only seems fair to have galleries there to sell art prints as well! So if you would like to see more of my recent work that I haven't had time to update to DA check it out here!

PICTURE PEACEWhat is Picture Peace?
Picture Peace is a creative activism movement, founded by career photojournalist Barry Kirsch, to help bring about world peace by transforming every citizen on the planet into a photographer.
How will a world of photographers bring about global peace? It's simple really: there is an unspoken code among photographers that all photographers are friends. Whether you work for rival agencies or not, in the field, every photographer watches out for and readily assists any fellow photographer in need. If all photographers are friends, and friends don't fight with friends then a world filled with photographers would equate to a world full of people looking out for one another, thus creating an environment in which peace is transformed from possibility to reality. Every individual on this planet is unique, varied and invaluable. Much like the distinct, nuanced reality each photographer sees when looking through the lens

ALL Next Gen Fun Facts!This is fan made!
All Next Gen Fun Facts! :iconwoootplz: Everything from my previous fun facts journals as well as some new ones are in here I probably won't make any more new Fun Facts journals. Instead, I'll just add them in here and let you know if there are any updates (if they are worth mentioning of course) I'll probably add more to the younger characters later since I'm still developing them. HOLY FRICK THIS JOURNAL IS LONG!
If this journal in particular is too long, you can look at these kinda shorter ones that narrow the characters down by category

30 Day Art Improvement (Hell) ChallengeI originally posted this on my Tumblr blog, and since it seems to be popular I thought I'd challenge people here.

Pony Price ListGeneral Commission Info Hat Pricing FAQ
All plushes are minky with applique eyes and cutie marks, unless otherwise agreed upon.
"Starting prices" are listed for all types of plushes. "Starting prices" are defined as the price for the most basic pony of that kind.
