Baby gender revealed!We went to the hospital as you do and had the 20 week scan. Baby was there, wriggling about and being all alien like and scary. Every now and then a hand appeared and then you could see a spine. Freaky. Seriously I was creeped out.Then the scanner woman pointed out the placenta and I felt the need to vomit into my mouth. Yeah, I'm not good with these things. Christ knows what'll happen at the birth! It will be HILARIOUS.So yes, baby is there wiggling about, avoiding the scan thing. When the lady first looked it was upside down! She asked if we'd like to know the gender if she could tell. We said yeah it was okay. So she had a little look at their bits and pieces and the baby splayed their legs and we got an eyeful of fetusy boy bits! So its a boy AND WHAT A BOY. I laughed as the bits and pieces flapped about. I was a little sad as girl clothes are so much prettier and fancier but as long as he is healthy I am thrilled, some people can't have kids so I'm certai
Sex tomorrow and depression.Hello Deviants.How are you doing? I hope you are all doing well.Tomorrow I go to the hospital to see what the baby is doing and hopefully find out if it has a peen or a vagoo. I am not really bothered what gender it is, as long as it is healthy and has a face then I will be happy.I haven't really been feeling all that happy lately. I blame all the hormones. Just wanting to sit in my house and be sad! I haven't even managed to go visit the BFF's which is upsetting. I hope that it will remedy itself soon.I am also in the "oh god I'm having a baby. Do. Not. Want." stage yet again. Joy. I am sure when it bursts forth it will all be okay. D: It will wont it? If not I will sell it and use the money to buy kittens. Many kittens.The dog will not leave me alone at the moment. She's never been overly affectionate but she is so needy and odd at the moment. Damn hormones. It'd be okay but she is HUGE and wants to lie on me.I have sat down to write this journal so many times but haven't had t
My DA Story.My DA journey starts eleven years ago when I first joined. I was fascinated by how people could make colours and lines look so amazing when I could barely draw anything.Whilst battling an endless fight with the voices in my head, I found DA and the community a great way to escape for a while and talk to like minded people.I saw awesome art made with photos of normal people. Not super models or famous people, just general every day people. So I wondered if maybe I could be made to look 'beautiful".I loved what was made. I loved how others could envision things I hadn't even imagined. I threw myself into the community, wanting to make everyone as upbeat as I felt.I met people I grew to love, I lost some along the way which is pretty shitty but I still have some of the best friends I'll ever have and a load of friends across the globe. Now that is impressive.
Death sucks.Hello Deviants.My Nan died last night.It was expected and she went without pain but it is still pretty heart breaking. She suffered from quite bad dementia over the last few years and Dad looked after her at home until a few weeks ago when she needed constant care so she went into a nursing home just round the corner from his house. We visited daily and she was pretty okay with it all. However on Friday she was feeling a bit unwell and by the end of this week she was pretty much unconscious in bed. Before this she had really laboured breathing, it was pretty much a "death rattle".I am glad I got to see her on the day she died, I said hello and such and told her I'd see her the next day and gave her a kiss. She then went peacefully a few hours later. Now I obsess over making sure Dad is okay. Him and his siblings have known this day has been coming so it is a bit of a relief that she isn't in pain anymore, but it is still sad. You never want to lose a parent I guess.So here's to Nan
I seem to be having a baby...!!It has a hand! D: How excitingly terrifying! Manwife and I are having a tiny little person! I am about three months and six days, I was horrifically ill at the start, in pain and couldn't move. That then went and the sickness began, morning, noon and night I wretched. I also wretched if I didn't eat every few hours. Fun.As you may know I am terrified of needles and veins creep me out so the first (ever) blood test I had was traumatic. I wouldn't let them take it from the crook of my arm so they took it by my wrist. Mother managed to put the numbing cream on the wrong part of my arm. The midwife got the needle in and then went "Hmm, there's no blood" and "your vein's wiggling out of the way". I saw Mother's face fill with despair. She knew what was coming. Then suddenly someone was shouting "NO NO NO NOOOOOO! GETITOOOOOOUT!" Rather loudly. However my second one went well, the numbing cream worked well and the midwife got it on t
Married for a year! :DYes! I have been married for one whole year as of yesterday! How did we celebrate?We didn't. We got a take away Pad Thai that I managed to spill over myself, watched Game of Thrones and I went to bed as I had a headache. Fun!If you are my friend on Facebook (which you should be, I'm hilarious) you'll see my awesome updates.This bird has been twittering constantly. It has become my enemy.You'll also find the tally of the animals my cats have brought me. Such as this shrew!<img="https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/p526x296/10341604_10152252343668074_2260090088879198394_n.jpg?oh=200de0dd733f3b4771e0889b7a28dbfb&oe=540D9CFE"> I managed to get him off the cat and put him in a box to chill out. I checked on him later and he was on his side not moving. I assumed he had died so I prodded him. No. He was sleeping. So I brought the cats in and put him out. Hope you've all been well!
What would you rather have?Legs as long as fingers or fingers as long as legs?This is an important question.
Found my husband in bed with another woman.Urgh. We've not even been married a year.What hurts the most is that she was a friend. I picked her up when she was having a hard time as she'd just survived a fire. I let her stay with us, eat with us and then this. I can't believe we were once BFF's. Husband says it didn't mean anything but how can I trust him now?I even got a photo of them together.The bitch.Here she is eating a delicious meal I made her.And here she is in a wig.Yes. I am still amusing myself with Cindy.And here is Thistle on my head.Hope you're all doing well.
Norman Rockwell, All American DeviantShare|AboutNorman Rockwell, All American DeviantBy techgnoticNorman Rockwell Tribute by SarafinconceptsFew artists have so definitively reflected the lives of average Americans as Norman Rockwell.He began his lifetime dedication to being the “America’s Illustrator” as the 19-year-old art editor for Boys’ Life, the house publication of the Boy Scouts of America. A few years later he assumed his more famous position at The Saturday Evening Post, though he never broke his ties with the Boy Scouts.

Collection: StarsShare|AboutStarsPhotographs and paintings of stars occupy that category of things you know are so, and yet it’s not quite possible to believe. One example is radio or television “signals” traveling in “waves” through the air, only to be reassembled for your listening or viewing pleasure in your living room radio or TV. Looking at clusters of stars lighting up the night sky like massive storm clouds, it’s impossible to think of those stars, those points of light, as separate massive burning suns, even though I know it’s so. Sometimes the most powerful magic requires no deception at all. The natural universe is more mystifying in its sheer numbers than any magician’s most mind–bending sleight of hand.“I am like a falli
Collection: Dia de Los MuertosShare|AboutDia de los Muertos“Day of the Dead” is not the “Latin American Halloween.” On Dia de los Muertos, Mexican families visit the spirits of their dead in the cemeteries where they rest. They bring food and other gifts as part of a happy celebration of departed loved ones. Halloween originated with the fear of the sprits of the dead visiting the living so food was offered as bribery for the spirits to do no harm. It was a scary once–a–year intersection of the world of the living with the world of the dead. Day of the Dead continues to be a celebration as antidote to mourning the passing over of loved ones. It is about the indestructible bonds of family being forever connected—even in the next world.“Entre flore
Collection: CreaturesShare|AboutCreaturesIn ancient tradition, Halloween was thought to be the night of the year when the realms of the living of the living and the dead came the closest together, enabling evil spirits and demons to hop over to our side to make mischief. For centuries the Church made very serious studies of what these hellacious creatures were actually thought to look like. Today, “creature imagining” is just a creative exercise and a way of having fun. Thank goodness none of our deviantART artists are drawing any of the subjects of this collection from live models. (Then again, just maybe…)“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.”– William Shakespeare

Collection: MasksShare|AboutMasksHalloween is a time for masks. Aliens, zombies, vampires and werewolves will soon walk the suburban streets in search of tasty treats. But then there is the next level of masks—the likenesses of movie stars, politicians and other celebrities with their most unflattering features exaggerated. Cheap shots, to be sure, but alibied as “satire.” We finally arrive at the “non–off–the–rack” mask–making of actual make–up artists. Here’s where the mask one chooses tells us things about the person we only thought we knew. You see, the scariest thing about masks is their very concept—of a friend or loved one, beneath the surface, not really being the person you know at all. That is a truly fearful thi
