Happy Pride! (0) Comments

Posted by admin under Personal on June 17th, 2020

Happy Pride! I know I’m half way into the month, but I have been busy supporting friends at the BLM protests and trying to get a job at our local drag bar. Fingers crossed!

So, not that I hide it well, but I am pansexual ( not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity. ) and polyamorous (I have more than one partner).

First, me being pansexual hasn’t ever been a thing nobody knew. I don’t give a flying one what you are: Girl, trans, boy, somewhere in between, non binary, genderfluid.. If I have an emotional connection to you, it’s very likely I will be attracted to you. However, part of that is respecting bounds. Yes, I’ve dated both men and women and one ex girlfriend has now found herself identifying as non binary. I love seeing them shine.

As for polyamorous: I do have two partners. And before this gets asked- yes, they both know about each other as I found my second partner AFTER marrying Kiwi. 3 long conversations, and them actually getting along made it easier. No, it’s not cheating. Polyam relationships work the same as monogamous- you best trust and have open communication.

Now, onto a fun thing I made for Pride and some of the tags I made my partners and I.

I made Pride flags as hearts for you to use in tags or decorate your own site. If you’d like to use them, you’ll have to click the graphic below.


And because I’m not assumed of my poly relationship, these are tags I’ve made for both my partners. πŸ™‚ More information on both of them can be found in my about me / loves.

One of my dearest friends, who loves me even when I’m being a complete pain in her side, was married to her soulmate today. Her journey hasn’t been an easy one in life, but she’s always overcome and shown amazing strength and grace even during her roughtest time. Mom to 4 awesome kiddos (2 sweet, brilliant girls and 2 sweet, brilliant little boys.) she is a force to be reckoned with.

Lauren is who performed my wedding to Mark, never doubted I’d marry that boy I was so determined to be with. She also listened (And still does) listen to me rant when things just feel like they’re stacking on top of me. It’s rare she loses her temper- at least to the outside world, but she is every bit the mama bear, protective wife, loving friend, everyone should have.

I haven’t gotten to meet her husband yet- everytime I think Mark and I might have free time- Lauren and her little ones or her hubby haven’t had free time. Schedules here don’t like to match up. But, I have 0 doubt in his commitment to her or the kids he’s lovingly taken to. I have a feeling he seems himself a lot like my Dad Rick, not a step parent, but the parent who stepped up.

I can’t wait to see the life they build together and wish them all the blessings in the world.

Yes, I know I went poof. I’m sorry. I do have a good reason.

March 17th, I had 2 seizures back to back and never came out of them. I went into acute respiratory failure at the hospital and they put me on a ventilator, which I apparently didn’t want to work with, so they put me into a medically induced coma.

I woke up April 6th in the ICU of my local hospital. They took the ventilator out and I slowly begin to go from baby food/applesauce and ice chips, back to solid food. I was moved to my own room and the real therapy began.

My left arm ended up underneath me somehow, either when the hospital moved me around to keep me from getting bed sores OR when I had my seizures at home (No blame, it’s not a permanent injury) but it’s currently not able to be fully stretched out at the elbow. I am however, able to take a shower, eat and get dressed unassisted.

The other issue? Being bedridden for a month, pissed off my heart and legs. My legs forgot how to hold me up steadily and how to walk. So while at the hospital they taught me to use a walker which I came home with. Here at home, I’m able to walk without the walker and I’m moving around on my own.

But what about my heart? Well, it’s not used to me moving, so my blood pressure is fluctuating. I’m taking blood pressure meds to control it, which hopefully I will not be on for long as my heart adjusts to me being active again.

The members area is now being taken care of again, and I am going to attempt to still do small updates. We’ll see how it goes, But now you know why I’ve been quiet. Thank you for your patience.

Sorry, don’t get too excited, it’s not the pixel shop.

I’ve now added larger stuffed animals. This is from the book “Huggable Amigurumi” and it can be found here.

I’m super proud of how this little Pengy came out! (Click the image to go to the full size image).

Happy Holidays! (0) Comments

I celebrate Yule on my own, and Christmas with family, so for me there’s multiple holidays!I hope yours are full of joy and laughter. I’m hoping two people get the karma they deserve though. Full circle and all that. πŸ˜‰

I am working on a members area. I should have some graphics made for it by March next year, enough to open and have it be worthwhile. I’m not sure how regular updates will be, but by that point I’ll be back into market prep so..

Guess you’ll have to bare with me! And this layout will be changing too! Oh! If you see a page labeled “Mom’s tags!” I collect tags for my mom. She loves snowmen. So, if you’ve got an extra snowman tag, throw it my way with “Denise” on it πŸ˜€

Coming soon: Freeware and Resin Jewelry (0) Comments

Posted by admin under Uncategorized on December 8th, 2019

Yep. You read correctly! Soon I’ll have Freeware pixels up and Resin Jewelry you can buy.

Freeware pixels will be shared with anyone who requests them. You will have to request them as I have a no use list and while it’s only 3 users deep, I’m not going to have my pixels given to those people.

Also coming soon! Resin Jewelry!

I’ve been playing with UV Resin. And my friend was kind enough to send me addon’s for it. So now I have glitter and dried flowers and duckies and.. the only thing I don’t have is resin dye.

Last night I had way too much fun, as you can see with the following picture.

Click for fullsize

1st row (L-R): pink/green rose, double dose Dark blue/teal glitter, big chunk gold/silver glitter.
2nd Row (L-R): Blue Rose (spoken for), Purple Rose (Spoken for), Deep pink rose/Rose glitter.
Bottom Row: (L-R): Pink/white opal glitter, Big Chunk Gold/silver and celebration glitter, Celebration Glitter Square (spoken for)

You could also use them for wire wrapping, less brittle than some stones. πŸ™‚

And the pixels? Oh have a preview.

Hi! Anyone else excited for the holiday season? No? Yeah I’m not yet either. Likely because I feel like I have far too much to do. So, to catch up what’s happening:

Hubby and I got photos done! Our Photographer is amazing and will be linked below too. If you’re in the Southern Illinois/St. Louis area, you should consider her as your photographer.

Thank you Angela Our photos are absolutely gorgeous!

Second, my friend and I have started to stream again, though it’s rather uncensored. It’s mature audience rated on Twitch because we simply need the break, him from his job, me from running a business. It works well. I’ll share more on that on a later date.

I am back to pixels, and will soon have more pixel sets up. My markets for the year are done and I’m somewhat grateful.

How are you all? New things going on for you?
