Inspiration is what I believe to be a huge part of every artists life. While I was in Uni, my lecturer told me there was no such thing as art block...So, I made it my mission to make my work space as inspiring as possible. I've always wanted to have my own proper room or rather studio to work in and now having moved house, i have my own space <3
So! It's super important to me my will to draw and ideas never dry up which is why how I set my room up is what I consider crucial! Sadly, we had a leak the other day and it went all over my desk, my laptop, printer and so on. Thankfully, nothing was damaged but it did mean I had to move my settled space round all over again. I countered the 'bad leak feelings' by moving everything around and putting up my posters!

Mrs Valentyne

Well, here we are.
I am officially a spoken for woman, I am now married and so very proud to be Mrs Valentyne. Neither Nicky or I wanted to carry on with our previous surnames so last year Nicky changed her surname to one we both came up with/agreed upon so that when we married, I would take her name.
We couldn't of asked for better weather, it was a gloriously sunny day and apparently our vows that we had written ourselves brought most people to tears. Our friends and family that were there had such lovely things to say, one comment that struck me was how evident it was to every one how much we loved one another.
I wont bore you with the details, we had a fantastic honeymoon just to drop in the mention. We also booked for next year. (Provided Nicky hasn't divorced me by then XD)

Now onto Artwork & Faceups/Sewing. I will be putting my all into them over the next two months. A storm is brewing and you shall see -shakes fist- YOU SHALL SEE!

Life Changes

Hello again!
How are you all?IOt's been nearly a month since Final Fantasy XIII-2 was released I wonder how many of you have completed it? I'm very close but at the same time I want to go fragment hunting.

Some big changes are going to be happening in my life and for once, they are all for the better. Normally people have to change because they have to not because they want to. I'd like to think I don't want much in life. A job I can enjoy that pays enough to keep a roof over my head, the debt collectors at bay and food on the table. Ideally sewing or drawing : ) A home, not neccesarily a big one, just some where safe and warm. My lover and my friends.
Sure it would be nice to be a millionaire, but to me that would just be a bonus. I'm getting married in as few months, cant lie if I said I wasnt nervous. This month I ended up going to a doll meet with some very good friends that has convinced both Nicky and I its time to move on. Move down to that area that is! Finally, living close to friends again we have missed it so much. I've managed to change my hours at work. I don't like the job I'm doing and it cuts my days in half, so I've fiddled my hours around so I wont lose as many hours but I will have more time to work on Liquid Sugar!

Anyways, rambling aside how is every one?

Peace & Love,

How goes 2012?

So how are you all? I've had some bad luck this year, so far anyway. Firstly, my main computer has broken so I've lost some of my editing programs, so everything is going back to being hand inked. Not that I mind though. I'm started to save up for a Mac anyway. I'm also on the look out for a new graphics tablet! Art wise I've the next few pages of Meant for Me done as well as one of two (if not more) character sheets done as well as come bonus artwork planned. (Pretty bishies in the shower any one?)

But how are you all anyway?

I've some new artwork that needs to be uploaded, however I'm actually away at the moment till Tuesday and I'm sure the release of FFXIII-2 will slow things down tee hee!
Doll wise my collection is complete in terms of getting them home all my characters are here or on their way. (Star is the last to arrive and Lily has been reshelled.) So Liquid Sugar is going to get some serious dedication as well. In terms of the 'real world' I'm actually away at my partners parents home for the moment but will be returning soon. I'm also job hunting until I can get my artwork & sewing off the ground. I'll be attending JCC Con in September with my Liquid Sugar goods so there is one start off eh?

I've also kindly been given a lovely subsciption so I think I might start doing some weekly polls just for some giggles!
So c'mon then, how have you all been?

Peace & Love
