gingersketches has started a donation pool!
1 / 5,000
The amount "5000" is arbitrary. I plan to use points for a number of things - Premium Membership, llamas, shop items, etc. - so I haven't got an exact number I'm aiming for.

Thanks, everyone!

Woohoo!  I am officially a married woman now :squee:  Admittedly, this new status comes with a new set of challenges and changes, but it is worth it.  The man I married is a godly, gracious man who is very caring and understanding of me, despite my shortcomings.

Now comes the adjustment phase:  unpacking and figuring out where things go in our new rental home, getting settled into a daily routine, adjusting to seeing our families less frequently (we were both homebodies), and so on.  But even with all that going on, I've managed to do some sketching since we got back from our honeymoon trip.  Nothing post-worthy yet, but that is the most drawing I've done in about three months, so it's progress :meow:  Hopefully, I'll get to that point soon.  We also have to get Internet service switched from his old place to our new place, and get my computer and scanner moved, too.  All in good time (though I'm definitely hoping for sooner rather than later).

Thank you all for your continued patience during this period of transition and major life changes for me.  I appreciate all the kind comments I've received, and I hope to get back on dA more regularly in the near future.
Well, my wedding is just around the corner (as in, *this Saturday*), and life continues to fly by at a hectic pace.  I have no time to draw right now, and probably won't really get a chance to until mid- to late-May, once my husband and I are back from our honeymoon and settled into our new house.

HOWEVER...  I wanted to give you guys at least SOMEthing to inspire you.  Since I can't provide that myself, I will delegate to a young lady named Lindsey Stirling.  The following are two phenomenal pieces of music she plays, and the music videos are inventive and impressive pieces of performance art.  Enjoy!

First up:  Rountable Rival - a playful steampunk Western romp.  (Seriously, it's worth watching for the elaborate costuming alone.)


Next:  Master of Tides - an exuberant "spontaneous" (to the unwitting spectators) live performance.  The sheer showmanship is so well-executed, from the actual performance to the video editing (the slow-mo water captures are captivating).


(If you get a chance, also check out the "making of" videos.  There's a pop-up at some point on each video that links you to them.  It's always cool to see an artist's creative process :) )
I am soooooooo busy these days, it's crazy!  Working two jobs and planning a wedding is like working three jobs (except I don't get paid to plan my wedding!).  I really don't know how often I'm going to be on between now and the wedding (it's in May), but I still think of you guys often and wish I had time to browse the art of the people I watch and reply more quickly to people's comments.  However, once I'm married (squee!) I will only be working one job, so hopefully I can be on here a bit more regularly.

All the best, and Happy 2015!

I am a Christian, a homeschool graduate, and a cancer survivor. I have been drawing since 9th grade, and I enjoy playing classic video games and watching black-and-white movies. I currently work at my local library six days a week, and am in constant danger of drowning in the books I check out. I'm also engaged to a pretty amazing guy. I thank God every day for these blessings.

You're welcome :aww:  I have been so busy lately, that I do not always have time to look through my deviantWATCH notices.  So I pick a day to look through the gallery of a person I watch and see what they've posted since the last time I looked.  Looking through your gallery was a pleasure, as usual :)
