Doodles for Donations CASH or POINTS CLOSEDUPDATE: Got the necessary amount for both fees~thank you to everyone who helped!Doodles for Donations CASH or POINTS CLOSED by SavageFrog
Not exactly feeling too happy about having to post this now instead of in May but the situation's really sucking right now. Last week I got a call saying that my financial aid for my studies have temporarily been suspended (I didn't do too well in a class & due to some new rules in the scholarship program I participate in regarding "academic performances"...I'm not eligible for aid until mid April/May). I ended up using the money I had been saving on my paypal to pay for the rent of my current apartment & some food items (P.S. Thank you to those who donated last time, it was really unexpected).
This aid mess also caused yet another issue: I can't pay for my grad school admission fee or my graduation fee & I've got til the end of the month to pay for them (can't ask for help from my parents since they're covering their own medical expenses right now) & the chance of landing a job is still lo
New projectHey guys,New project by maytel
remember how I wanted to get back into jewellery making but being a Mom with a 3 week old is kind of hard. I've been working on this line for a little while. I'm still in the testing phase.
Yep, I am re-opening my etsy page and I have a brand new name to go with my project. I'm calling it "A Crafting Mayhem".
You can expect to hear more about that soon. Here's a preview of what's to come.
Me, a Daily Deviation???Me, a Daily Deviation??? by raiinysummer
I can't believe this, oh my goodness. I was wondering why I had an influx of notifications, and I definitely had not seen this coming!!!
First of all, many thanks to TheGalleryOfEve and SavageFrog for suggesting this piece, and Damaged927 for featuring it!! It is such an honor to be featured along with all those other amazing pieces ;_____;
This feels so unreal??? ahHhhh
For someone to actually suggest it, much less for it to actually have been chosen to be featured!
And as always, thank you so much to all my watchers for your continual support, and for sticking with me through ups and downs !! This is a pretty great early Christmas present ; U ;
New Music!My SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/x-vivaerethalonia-xNew Music! by x-VivaerethAlonia-x
Waltz Phantasma - my newest composition. A work within a work, "Four Ghostly Dances." So far this is the only one I've done. Composed in memory of four friends who passed away at far too young an age. Enjoy!
I've gone and composed another something... This time it's a bit New Age, inspired by Lumia from The Dark One. Enjoy!
Another recording, just what, a day after the last one? Here's the third movement from my Concert for unaccompanied violin: https://soundcloud.com/x-vivaerethalonia-x/violinconcert3
I have released a recording of my newest composition, "Sonatina, Op. 2." Check it out here: https://soundcloud.com/x-vivaerethalonia-x/sonatina

Shy like a FlowerIf I don’t say hello to you
don’t go away
because sometimes for me it’s not easy,
… it’s hard to say …
I’m like a shy flower that blooms
in early May
which goes through struggles just to open
so if you see me turning red
think of today
and just remember what I’m saying …
… just please stay …
Creative Craft Challenge: Tsumami KanzashiSuggested by CaycaCreative Craft Challenge: Tsumami Kanzashi by ArtisanCraft
Hello everybody! I've got one last submission to this month's challenge to share with you:
Beautiful! Well, I'll see you all next week with a new challenge for September/October!
Another beautiful submission to this challenge, check it out:
Next week will be the last for this challenge, and then we'll have a new challenge for September/October! See you next week!
Hi! We have a few new submissions to the challenge this week, another fun and unusual use of tsumami kanzashi: eyepatches! You all are so creative, I love it!
Also, I noticed a few tsumami kanzashi that were submitted to the gallery folders but not the favorites folder for the Challenge, so here's just a friendly reminder that it doesn't count for the Challenge unless it's in the favorites gallery (but it can be in both, so fear not- you don't have to choose between them!).
Anyways, see you all next week!
August Arts and Health Challenge: JoyHi everyone,August Arts and Health Challenge: Joy by Aeirmid
We are opening a new month on a positive note; the challenge theme for August will be Joy. Living with a health condition (or caring for others who do) does not have to be all doom-and-gloom! What are the things that bring you joy, even amid the darkness?
Joy is essential to life. Researchers have shown that, generally speaking, people who have more joy in their lives tend also to be healthier. Sometimes in life, it is too easy to forget to take a moment and drink in something that makes us joyful. It is medicine in and of itself.
Your entries to this challenge should focus on the theme, "JOY."
Here are the rules:
You can enter as many times as you want, but you must be a member of Arts-and-Health to participate.
The admins and/or guests will choose one winner to receive a three-month subscription-- something large enough to be rewarding but not so large that it is coercive.
We will judge based on, "Which piece moved us the most?"
Beyond Boundaries: Contest THEME!Hi everyone,Beyond Boundaries: Contest THEME! by Aeirmid
I hope your team collaborations are going splendidly! You are about halfway through the competition! Congratulations on making it this far.
Today marks the start of Week 5, and it's time to reveal the theme for your contest photomanipulation entry!
The theme is . . .
One Moment in Time
I left this theme vague intentionally.
Basically, your deviation can be a snapshot of an historical time period, OR it can represent a moment in someone's own life (now) that really stands out. It can be a good memory or a bad memory, nice or scary. It can be anything you want as long as TIME is represented somehow (figuratively or literally).
Also, in your artist's comments when you submit, please write one sentence describing the moment in time that inspired you to create this deviation.
As a reminder:
You must already be a member of this competition to join this part of the contest.
Your coach and your team can

Prints For Panzi ProjectI'm a woman, so when I read about these things my heart is touched at a very deep level ... but I also know of many men whose hearts are in the right place and who when they read all this, feel as appalled as I do ... So I'd like to use this little corner of dA to help spread the word about a lovely project that our beloved petrova is doing
This was the journal that caught my attention and built my desire to help out on this somehow ...
She saw this and decided to take action to help!!! So she created PrintsForPanzi, an account dedicated to gather artworks to sell as prints, in order to raise money to help them get an industrial washing machine!!! ... Something this hospital is in great need of
These are some of the artworks you can buy as prints if you wish to help out:
Gofundme! 300 Point Giveaway+Features for All!EDIT: Thank you for the response thus far! Please be sure to share this on your social media sites, if possible. Facebook, twitter, tumblr, anything at all.
Hey all. I had a few people suggest to me that I create a gofundme in order to raise some funds for my bills. I would really appreciate it if you could spread this journal around. I really don't have much to offer, but I figured perhaps doing a giveaway may help spread the message a bit. Scroll down for the giveaway.
First here is the link to the gofundme page: http://www.gofundme.com/83p7mg
Here is the story from the gofundmepage, in case you want to read it.
"Hello! I thank you for visiting my page and taking a minute of your time to read my story.
In the last year, I lost my home, lost all my possessions, and all of my money savings due to an unexpected situation and because of that certain situation, I was forced to move across t
