...though I never really went anywhere
Even though I haven't been posting any new art, I have been on dA daily the past year. I have quite a few reasons as to why I haven't been actively drawing though:
1. I got married!! On March 8th, 2014 I married my James
I'm sorry I didn't mention it sooner but I didn't want to really post anything about it until I had photos and my photographer finally sent me some of our pictures
It's a huge lifestyle change being married and it truly feels like a new book, not even a new chapter of my life. My set of friends are so different from a year ago, I got a big change of scenery living in a new town, and I'm so much happier. James has brought out such a good side of me (and occasionally a bad side when I get exhausted from house chores
) and I've made so many changes in the past year. I'm alot closer to my parents and sister and after the wedding, I really got to see how much they truly loved me, especially my dad. Every time I see him now he seems to cry when we part ways
I never realized how much he loved me until now. I really feel myself growing as a person. I'm also much closer to God as a result of marrying James, and I think that's the biggest reason my life has gotten so much more positive.
2. I have some new family members
I got two kitties with my husband, so all I have now are my two new girls Maddi and Mitzi, and I kept my guinea pig, Amber. My parents kept the three dogs (I miss Pudge so much!) and kitty Toasty as they were family pets and none really belonged to me besides Amber. So yeah, I've been taking care of my new pets and hubby, it's been kind of hard to make any time to draw or to do anything else! Here are my new girls:
Yup, I changed my username! It's something I've been debating over for a long time, the only reason holding me back was that I could never change it back to what it used to be if I did this and that scared me cause I'm very sentimental with my old username. But I really wanna change gears with my dA. I want it to be more about my art and my life and less about fanart. Of course, I will still make fanart and draw BB and Kitzi but it's going to be less focused on that and more general
How have you guys been doing! It feels so good to be posting again!
