14,965 Days

Journal Entry: Thu May 5, 2011, 4:43 AM
 

:iconcincodemayoplz: That's how long I've been around, give or take a few leap days.  Before you get out a calculator, that makes me 41 today.  I certainly don't feel old, even though I think I'm near the "middle-aged" designation. I have nothing big planned to celebrate.  I'm actually pretty "meh" about my birthday, as I generally don't like people making a fuss over me.  But they continue to do it anyway, so a few years ago I stopped fighting it and try to enjoy it as much as I can. It's pretty cool being born on Cinco de Mayo.  I probably could get a free margarita if I went out to a Mexican restaurant to eat, but I never do.  Instead, I'm making homemade flautas (which some of you call taquitos) and other Mexican sides. I like cake, but am opting to have chocolate shakes.  Then I'll collapse in a full-tummy stupor until I have to wake up for work on Friday.  Wish me luck!

:aww: Art-wise I've been bouncing all over the place.  I have to get back to dolling as I still owe a couple of gifts/prizes on my Alt account.  I have a couple of emotes pieces on the backburner, so hoping I can get to those soon.  I have been having fun making chat-friendly emotes as of late, but I really miss my more detailed emote-art pieces. So, expect to see a few works along those lines in the near future.

:iconmothersdayplz: Mother's Day is Sunday and I would like to take a moment an wish all of the lovely moms/mums out there a wonderful and relaxing day.

:wave: I'm gonna save the contest features for next week.  Just a couple of small artist features.  See you all in 7!

As many of you know, I have a special love for making pixel fonts.  Well, part of that has come from admiring wonderful font creations over the years.  One of the artists who inspired me (and still does) is jelloween.  She recently returned from a long hiatus, and I couldn't be happier! Her fonts are simply amazing--and she has the DDs to prove it.  And, unlike me, she creates standard fonts as well.  If you love typefaces, then you really need to check out her gallery.  She has some amazingly cute pixels too, which are alone worth a look.

Jammin' cow by jelloween Jump for joy by jelloween Blackmago Fanart by jelloween Weird monsters by jelloween

All the best and all that jazz :aww:

Apparently. Someone just told me yesterday that the had their Mother's Day a few weeks ago. I know with us in the U.S., we have a few holidays the same as Canada, but many are on different days, such as Thanksgiving.
