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.
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.
I have a new BFF! Happy Easter or whatever.I have a new BFF!
She is called Cindy AND I LOVE HER.
Why yes, I did steal her from a skip outside a hairressers that burned down.
I shampooed her hair and everything. It is real human hair. D: Creepy.
Hope you're all doing well.
Snapchat?I might regret this...but I have snapchat on my iPad now, sooo add me - UnicornReality - and we'll be silly.
Please don't send your rude bits, I WILL save them and upload them to the Internet.
You will receive many photos of my face being squashy and my cats.
Dreams of a DD. I have always been talented.HELLO Deviants! How are you all?
I had a dream the other night that I got a DD on an emote I had made. It was called :abortion: and it was just one emote smashing the other into the ground until it bled. D: I logged in and saw it on the DDs and just thought "OH MY GOD I WILL GET KILLED!" :') Safe to say I was pretty happy that it was only a dream!
Have you ever had dA related dreams? I have had a few over the years. When I was just starting as a Stock Community Volunteer I had horrible dreams that the community hated me. D: Luckily they seemed to like me. Fun.
Yes. I have always been amazingly talented. Here is a drawing I did years ago, it is called "Fionas story books about cats" [sic]
SO TALENTED. I almost cried when I rediscovered it. The spelling is atrocious. I think that makes it better.
Oh what fun!
Take care my loves!
Oh Valentines Day. :')I love the Valentines Day Exchange on dA. It is one of my favourite events.
I love sending really, really horrific cards to people. If you've not been spammed you might still not be safe.
I do enjoy a laugh.What's shakin' Deviants?
I have reently been spending my time laughing at this
EVERY TIME I SEE IT.
Oh god, so funny. :')
I can't get over it.
I have also got emotionally attached to Rafa over at elanmeetsrafa. Warning, it has some homosexualities in it so if you're not into that don't go browsing. I enjoy getting emotionally attached to characters, it makes life worthwhile.
Urgh. I said I'd draw more this year. What a lie.
I better go make Manwife some food. What a good little woman I am.
Oooor just play online... We'll see...!

You CAN Do It Too! Commissions, Exposure, and...
Do you feel like no one cares about your artwork? That no matter how hard you try, you'll never improve? Well, I've been there before.
A little less than a year ago, I didn't even have 100 watchers. It was tough trying to find commissions, even though I priced them around 10 - 100 an hour. Sure, I had some wonderful people supporting me (thank you very much for that!), but when I looked at the thousands of diehard fans the "popular" artists had, I felt kinda useless. It seemed like even a thousand watchers, or just being able to earn minimum wage was impossible. Sometimes I wanted to cry from all the effort I put in. I kept drawing and drawing but barely improving. I was frustrated and felt useless. But instead of giving up, I pushed myself even harder, and by God's grace it's starting to work out for me.
I now have over 16,000 amazing people encouraging me, and I know it's only a matter of tim
No more excuses, it's time to improve your art!You’re probably well acquainted with the old proverb “practice makes perfect.” And while I don’t fully believe that perfection is attainable, because the very notion of perfection is somewhat subjective, getting better at anything requires both time and effort. I’m going be very blunt here; if you want to improve your artistic skill you need to actually practice.
My heart goes out to everyone here who is struggling to improve so don’t feel that I’m purposely singling you out here. However throughout my time on dA (and in real life) I’ve met artists begging for advice on how to quickly improve and sadly when I tell them to begin practicing the excuse is always ‘well, I don’t really have the time for that.’
And I ain’t got time for yo attitude.
You do have the time

Basic CSS Style GuideIntroduction
CSS is a style language used to define the style and formatting of web pages. It is used in conjunction with HTML.
If we think of HTML as the building blocks of the web then, essentially, CSS is the painter and decorator. Very simply, HTML defines the structure of the page and CSS defines the style.
What I'll be helping you with here is getting to grips with the basics of CSS. I'll be explaining how use CSS as well as providing a number of examples that you can use to style your own web pages and journals. All you need to do is copy/paste the code and replace the sample text with your own content. Along with the quick reference I've also written a brief glossary of terms and provided a list of useful links in case you wish to do some further reading.
A point of note is that while the information and examples I've given here apply to CSS use anywhere on the web, this guide itself is geared towards the use of CSS on deviantART. As such, and given that this h

Manip AcademyIntroducing a new project!
Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.
Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.
This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.

Volpi.You will find that the story you tell
is very rarely your own. In Lucca,
even the smallest pebbles
breathe in the warm sunlight.
Knotted stones and cobbled roads
beat out a paper-dry heartbeat heat
my city breathes in and out,
inhales sparrow air.
It's writing a story.
You are the pen.
You will find that in Lucca
the daisy chains forge fire
in side streets and back alleys.
Teenagers intertwine. Tell me,
odd flower, are you still closed?
Here we are colored wax;
the heat of the city melts us.
We run into each other, rhapsody
of pigments. Operas are our specialties.
Open up; feel the reds.
If not, try and see them. There is a place
of deep knife marks, a street
long as midnight
you may learn something there.
Valentina's voice glimmers like red wine.
You may enjoy intoxications. Still,
know alcohol has no story
and will swallow your own.
Find the sign with the wolf on it.
You'll know the place. Epiphanies ring true as church-bells.
Lucca still guides the wanderers
to well sp
