Wow! April has been so busy with take-home commissions from Naka-kon, personal projects, outstanding commissions, Easter, and birthdays. On top of all that, I'm preparing my little house to move my mother in. Her boyfriend with whom she had just started staying died of a sudden heart attack (smoking related, incidentally). Her Winter was pretty miserable while she watched his house for the family. Her job, even at full time, doesn't pay enough for her to move into an apartment around here and she doesn't have any roommate prospects at her age. So, she's moving in with us. Things will be tight, but there are people who make it on less.

We're looking at the housing market for a place to move, but I'm not sure if I want to jump into an existing house or get a new build. I sure would like a place that is my own and has ever been my own and one that I can live in until my children graduate and possibly beyond. I want an energy efficient place and I'd really love space for a studio, but I don't know how that will go. We'll see how we do together as a family first and then decide what we need.

So, with all that on my mind, I'm taking a little break for Easter weekend. I'm going to take this time to wish all my friends and followers a Happy Easter. Rejoice in the rejuvenation! Bite some bunny ears. Thank you, sincerely, for taking the time to view my offerings.

Be loved.

It was really great seeing you at Naka-kon. I have to admit I fangirled so hard over the fact that you had Blank and Zidane. I didn't see any FFIX there last year! Your style is simply gorgeous and I can't wait to see the commission I ordered (an OC named Falise)! I'm sure it will be fantastic! :)

Thank you so much for stopping by! It's great to meet people who love FF9 as much as I do! And I'm enjoying the commissions I received so much! It's so interesting to "meet" peoples' characters this way! I'll be contacting you soon :D Thanks again.

It was no problem! To tell the truth, last year I talked to artists in the Vendor Room more than I went to panels or did any shopping. This year, I went to a few more panels so I didn't get to chat as much as I'd like with other artists. I love seeing the way people handle different characters and all the different styles, and I kind of use it as 'research' since I'm an art major myself. I'm really glad I got to talk to you some and it's always awesome to meet other fans of the FF series! FF8 and FF9 are my two favorites and you just don't find enough fans out there :)

Aw, thank you! I'm sorry that it's taken me so long to get back to you. I don't really have time to RP these days and when I resume, I'll be playing on FFMUX again. If you're in need of other players, check them out sometime at
