Tagged again! 10 Completely Useless Facts About Me

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 28, 2010, 4:51 PM


The rules:
1. Post these rules.
2. You must post 10 things about yourself in your journal.
3. At the end, you have to choose and tag 10 people and post their icons in the same journal.
4. Go to their pages and send a message saying you tagged them.
5. No tag-backs.

I was tagged by LineBirgitte

1) My hubby and I met on the internet...back in '95 before the internet was the internet we know today. I guess you could say we were pioneers!
2) I love...I say I LOVE...I really, really :love: :heart: milk!
3) According to those around me, I'm a damn good cook. I just hope it's not like some of those Australian Idol contestants who were told by all their friends and family that they could sing really well...:paranoid:
4) Ten things huh? Sheesh...ok #4:  I hate talking on the phone...to anyone.
5) I turn 43 in 2 days, right alongside Asher-Bee who turns 26, and Tim McGraw :drool:
6) I collect butterflies, penguins and cows. Not real ones...except the cows, we have 14 cows, 9 calves and a bull. There are butterflies out there too, but I don't catch them and pin them to boards to exhibit them...that's like...creepy :faint:
7) I go from extremely stubborn to incredibly laid back, depending on the situation.
8) I don't get on well with rude people. I'm talking about common courtesy/decency, both of which seem to have gone out the window these days :hmm:
9) Two more...gosh..let's see...erm...uhm....I love purple! Ok, fair enough, anyone who knows me knows this fact about me, but someone just getting to know me might not!  I catch myself wanting to buy things, whether or not I really need them, just because they're purple...I had to stop myself from buying a purple curling iron...my hair is naturally curly :meow:
10) I hate getting asked 'What do you want for your birthday (or Christmas or whatever), especially by those close to me.  They should know me well enough by now to know what I might like, and to know that I like to be surprised! If I have to ask for it, it kinda takes away the specialness :tears:

Alrighty...now I have to tag 10 others. Let's seeeeeeee....
I tag: :iconbeautifulbizarremag: :iconweknow: :iconasher-bee: :iconjosephthomas: :iconsublimebudd: :iconnettier: :iconduronboy: :iconcarvingbackbone: :iconimustbedead: :icondeadspirit6:

Intensity by scottb
I'm sooooo very glad to see this one win, as it was one of my favourites from all of the entries :D Everyone thinks of lust as a touchy-feely kind of thing, giving in to urges; But I see lust as a craving, a desire for something/someone that is unattainable or unreachable...so this piece spoke volumes of Lust to me!  Congratulations on your win, :iconscottb:!!

Second Place goes to :iconninaste: with Medusa by ninaste

LUST Contest has gone GLOBAL!!

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 1, 2010, 12:51 AM


Announcing :iconaus-art:'s first Group Contest!!
:star::star::star::star::star:This contest is now open to EVERYONE on dA!!:star::star::star::star::star:
:star::star::star::star::star:TONS OF GREAT PRIZES:star::star::star::star::star:


:iconcocoheartplz::iconcocoheartplz::iconcocoheartplz::iconcocoheartplz::iconcocoheartplz:


The concept is 7 Deadly Sins

~ Lust
~ Wrath
~ Greed
~ Sloth
~ Pride
~ Envy
~ Gluttony

The theme will run across 7 contests, each dealing with one of the Sins.

:iconcocoheartplz::iconcocoheartplz::iconcocoheartplz::iconcocoheartplz::iconcocoheartplz:

The first Contest will focus on:


LUST

Lust or lechery is usually thought of as excessive thoughts or desires of a sexual nature. Aristotle's criterion was excessive love of others, which therefore rendered love and devotion to God as secondary. In Dante's Purgatorio, the penitent walks within flames to purge himself of lustful/sexual thoughts and feelings. In Dante's "Inferno", unforgiven souls of the sin of lust are blown about in restless hurricane like winds symbolic of their own lack of self control to their lustful passions in earthly life.

All mediums are welcome, we have amazing artists of all kinds in this group and this is a theme that all can show/interpret in their work. I cant wait to see the results :eager: :eager: :eager:


Rules and guidelines:

1. Submit your entries to the "7 Deadly Sins" Folder created in the Main Group Gallery.
2. Mention the Contest and Aus-Art in the "Artists Comments" under your deviation.
3. Your entry must respect Copyright Laws. If you use resources, don't forget to give all the credits.
4. All media is welcome.
5. Two Entries maximum per deviant.
6. You must be a member of Aus-Art to enter.
7. You can enter an older work, just re-submit the piece and mention the contest in the artist comments. But new works are encouraged.

Start Date: February 2nd
Deadline: March 13th

1st, 2nd & 3rd Places will receive:

It only takes 5 minutes to sign up so you can vote, you can even use a fake email addy! So please, if you're an animal lover like I am, if you can spare 5 minutes, go and give these guys a vote...it's an awesome photo, and well worth your vote if you ask me! Click HERE to vote!

I hope everyone's having a good January :) I'm back at work now since last week, and wow was it a struggle to have to wake up early again! lol Last week was fairly slow, but this week we've been flat-out busy with new orders and trying to get a few older orders done, but I sure don't mind, it's great to be back in the swing of things and a busy day goes by pretty fast :D  I'm still having a hard time getting my creative juices flowing again, but maybe being back and work and doing my design work there, I'll get going again with my personal artwork as well...here's hoping anyway :)

I guess it's time to update my Favourite Faves again as well, so have a look below, I'm sure you'll find some awesomeness there!

Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year to all my dA friends!

I hope your holidays are wonderful in whatever way you celebrate, or even if you don't! We're going to the Out-Laws for Christmas lunch and probably for Christmas dinner as well (leftovers from lunch!).

My hubby, Wayne, gave me my Christmas present early a couple of weeks ago, a baby Major Mitchell Cockatoo Meet Matilda by DomiSM, and she's just lovely!  I've named her Matilda :) She's finally starting to play with her seed a bit, so hopefully it won't be long and I can stop the 4-hour feedings :D He got a lawnmower motor...lol...and an MP3 player for his car since his CD player stopped working a while back. I've filled it with Slim Dusty and Johnny Cash for him :D Hey, we celebrate early around here!

Anyway, stay safe and check out my Weekly Faves at the bottom of my journal...there's some great work there!

:hug: :kiss: :santa: :xmas:

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to put the word out to any Australian artists who watch me, or maybe you know some Aussies who watch you and can spread the word...there's a new group for Aussie Artists! Now, I know I'm not Australian, but since this is my home now, the group has made me feel welcome :D  :iconbeautifulbizarremag: is the Founder and she's just wonderful! Drop by, join the group if you're an Aussie Artist (or an adopted Aussie artist like me), give us a watch or just browse the galleries...there are some amazing</strong> Aussie artists being showcased there!  All mediums are welcome, no matter what kind of art you do, there's a category for your work, and if there isn't, I'm sure :iconbeautifulbizarremag: will be more than happy to add one for you!  

:iconaus-art: is the group...see there, I made it easy for you to find! :icondweebdanceplz:  

Hope everyone is having a great week! This is my last week of work before the holidays, so I'm really looking forward to Friday (not like I don't do that every week...lol) :eager:

:hug: and :kiss: to everyone :D

Stuff...

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 4, 2009, 1:02 AM


Hi everyone :D

Just a couple of things I wanted to throw into my journal here, maybe y'all can help these awesome artists out with a couple of things:

My good friend :iconasher-bee: has entered a contest here with this entry: :Rainbows and Stars: by Asher-Bee and could really use your votes! She is one of my favourite artists here on dA and a wonderful girl to boot, so check out her gallery and check out the contest entries, and if you like what you see, please give her a vote!

My favourite photographer here on dA, :iconimustbedead: has a voice interview here. Give him a listen, and if you'd like to leave a comment on that page to help him into the top 10 interviews, that'd be great! It's an awesome interview...really great to have some insight into such an amazingly creative mind :D Be sure to check out his gallery, too, if you're not familiar with his work...I promise you won't be disappointed!

As for me, it's been a crazy week with a Christmas get-together on Tuesday night, an Awards night at the high school on Wednesday, where my husband handed out the Year 7 awards, a full week of work and tomorrow night another Christmas party for our local Rotary and Inner Wheel clubs. I'll be glad when this week is over!  Next week is a little quieter, but the next couple of weeks after we'll be pretty busy again.  I've got a couple of projects in the making, working on them when I find the time, and should have something new posted soon :fingerscrossed:

I hope everyone is well and getting into the holiday spirit!
:love: :hug: and :kiss: to all of y'all!

SECRET VEXY!!

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 12, 2009, 4:21 PM


Hi everyone!!
I thought it was time to update my journal :) Sorry I've not really been doing much lately, I hurt my back a couple of weeks ago (an old injury that flares up if I sneeze wrong), so sitting (and laying and standing and walking) has been a little bit of a problem. It's a little better this week though, my chiropractor finally got some good movement out of it and was able to crack my spine from top to bottom (I know that sounds awful, but believe me, it's not, it feels pretty good actually!) So hopefully, now that sitting isn't excruciating, only a wee bit uncomfortable, I'll be able to be here and get some stuff done :)

Firstly, The Secret Vexy Project!! :eager: If you're into Vectors/Vexels, and I know a lot of my watchers and friends are, though most of you are already in the club I think (if you're not, you should be!!), :iconvector-artists: are doing a Secret Vexy project for the holidays! :iconcheerplz: It's really neat, kind of like a Secret Santa thing if you've ever done that. Basically you put your name down if you want to participate (click this vector-artists.deviantart.com/… to sign up!) You're then randomly given a person to make a vector piece for, only you won't know who they are, and whoever gets you as their Secret Vexy won't know who you are either! Deadline to join is Nov 20th and your piece is to be finished by Dec 31 :D

Secondly, I wanted to feature a couple of awesome artists and share them with y'all.  These are people who I'd love to be able to look over their shoulders while they work and take in a few of their secrets! If ya have time, take a peek at their galleries, I promise you won't be disappointed! :dance:

:iconasher-bee: I fell in love with this lady's work from the first piece I saw of hers, she's just awesome, both as an artist and as a person! Just the other day we realised we share the same birthday, May 1st! She's very helpful and chatty and all-around wonderful! Here's just a few of my faves from her gallery (it's SO hard to choose!!)
:Mayden Gaianna: by Asher-Bee   The Rock Chick Maker Game by Asher-Bee   :Lizzie and the Cow: by Asher-Bee

:iconartemisa-69: Another lovely lady who's work I always look forward to seeing, as each piece is better than the one before :) She's so supportive and always ready with a comment or a suggestion, and I appreciate her friendship heaps! Here are a few of her beautiful pieces:
Emilia by artemisa-69   La mas bella historia de amor by artemisa-69   Clown Love by artemisa-69

I hope y'all have a great week and hopefully I won't take as long to update this again!
:love: :huggle: :hug: :icongwompplz: :glomp: :tighthug: :heart: to all of ya!! :D

Library Love Notes...

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 17, 2009, 6:27 PM


A couple of days ago, browsing the Daily Deviations, this one caught my eye:

:thumb137783915:

I'm a sucker for anything with hearts on it, but couldn't read the words in the small view, so I clicked on it and, well, I was simply amazed by what this is!

:iconvampireinthesunlight: has been making these little love notes and inspirational messages and slipping them into library books for the next person who checks out the book to find! It's such a simple, wonderful, thoughtful and selfless thing to do, and who knows how many days she has brightened for people in her area; who knows how much she has touched someone by leaving a note that says simply, "You are beautiful," or "Never give up." Such simple little messages that could possibly have quite a profound impact.  

Well, along with the DD that she received for her love notes, the overwhelming response and amount of people who have said to her that they are going to start doing this too, has resulted in the start of the Library Love Notes Campaign.
So check it out and pass the word along! I think this is the start of something beautiful :D

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 14, 2009, 5:15 AM


Hi everyone!

I just wanted to take a few minutes and introduce to you a very good friend of mine, Loch-Harlan :D
:iconloch-harlan:

I've known Loch online for almost 3 years now and I had the pleasure of meeting him in person last year while I was in the USA visiting my family. I was most happy to find out that he is as wonderful in person as he is online! :D

Loch has an amazing way with words and is a marvelous poet, and he joined dA last week to share his work with the world!
:clap: :iconcheerplz:

Please, please please</em> check out his steadily-growing gallery of wonderful poetry!  Give him some :love:, welcome him to the :community: and support an awesome new Deviant!

psssst, Loch...:strong: <--- that's as close as I could find for 'flex'! :giggle:

Inspiration

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 30, 2009, 12:09 AM


What inspires you?
I'm sure for each of us it's something or someone different.

Rainy days inspire me...the sound of the rain on the roof calms me and clears my mind and my soul.

Emotions..all of them..inspire me, wanting to grab that flash of anger or the sparkle of pure joy in someone's eyes and capture it for all time.

Children inspire me, for their innocence, their curiosity, their laughter...their freedom.

And of course there are people who inspire me, each for different reasons...

:iconwisewanderer: I've known Andrew for a lot longer than I've been on dA, but he's the reason I'm here and the main reason I keep coming back. Andrew is simply brilliant, with his artwork and in his friendship, and I honestly don't know what I would do or where I would be without him. Check out his gallery and I'm sure you'll agree that he's a man of many talents, so good at all of them that it's impossible to choose a favourite! Andrews artwork, as well as his unfailing support, forever inspire me to be a better artist, a better person. Thanks for all you do, Andrew, you're the best! :heart:

:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

:iconthelma1: Thelma is a beautiful lady, and I look forward to her fractals and photos as well as her sweet and funny notes and journals. She always knows how to brighten one's day and is always ready with hearts and hugs :) You're a true gem, Thelma, and it's a pleasure knowing you! :glomp:

:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

:iconatixvector:, :iconimustbedead: and :icondavenit:: I don't claim to "know" these artists, but I eagerly await the next additions to their galleries. Each one is so creative in their own right and never fail to make me say "OMG!" or "WOW!" and always inspire me to do more, to do better. :omg: :wow:

:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:


There are, of course, other people who inspire me who aren't on dA, but I thought I'd take the time to thank those of you who are here. Without you all, I wouldn't enjoy my time here nearly as much as I do, and I thank you all for everything you contribute to my inspirations :D

:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

A Sign of the Times

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 26, 2009, 6:34 PM


Let me set the scene a bit.  
I live in rural New South Wales, Australia, on a small farm about 20k from the nearest town, Population about 7000.
"Traffic" for me is a cow on the road, or a kangaroo threatening to jump onto the road.

I was going to town today to get a few groceries, and I saw up ahead on the road someone riding a horse.  Not an uncommon sight around here. He had on faded jeans, a long weather-beaten leather coat and a dusty old hat on his head. My mind wandered a bit, thinking that this scene, him on horseback, his clothing, the dust rising behind him...it could have been a scene from 100, 200 years ago...until I got closer and passed him and saw him talking on a mobile phone.

Kind of put things into the right timeframe again :)
