Back from Break! Now Back to Work!

January 5, 2012

Hello once again, all of you lovely persons!! I hope that all of you had fantastic holidays and a wonderful New Year, and haven’t broken any resolutions yet!

I posted a small announcement on my commission page that I was going to be on break for a couple of weeks there, and had every intention of writing a full blog post announcing my absence as well, but then an INCREDIBLY-POORLY-TIMED INCIDENT OCCURRED: the charger for my laptop shorted out and so I had no power and could not access anything. D8 So, I am terribly and deeply sorry if anyone tried to contact me and I could not get back to you.

Right now, however, it’s time to go through all of my messages and comments and get back to everyone!! And then it’s back to work on sewing up everyone’s ponies!!

FURTHERMORE, what with it being a new year and all, it’s time to pave a new path for myself and really offer some substantial things to this blog. I know I keep talking and talking about this Boutique idea of mine, and it was my resolution last year to get it going. I still wanna do that, but we’ll likely see some other immediate things I can offer here before then. c: I’m thinking of downloadable packages of icons and desktop themes, some with licenses included so you can use the graphics in your own design endeavors – Web design of your own, independent games, and the like.

Would you believe that I intend to publish a book soon, too?? I’ll self-publish a physical copy through Lulu but also have a downloadable PDF ebook available on this site (cheaper alternative). It will be on the subject of sewing cute, tiny things.

Other thing I need to do on this site: post the photos of finished ponies that I’ve already submitted to DeviantArt.

Awesome Hostgator Deal Today

Friday, November 25th, 2011

November 25, 2011

Hey everybody! Hope everyone had a a great Thanksgiving!

So I guess the day after Thanksgiving is some kind of crazy shopping day or something??

I got in my inbox this morning a note from my Web host provider, Hostgator, that every service they offer is 50% off for today only.

If you’ve been thinking about starting your own Web site and hosting, I’d jump on this chance! Hostgator is great. I went with the cheapest hosting option (Hatchling Plan) and everything I could have needed for my site was provided (e-mail addresses, mailing lists, subdomains) plus tons of other stuff I might never need but I’m sure would benefit other people!

A run-down of their prices look like this for today:

  • Shared hosting: Normally $4.95;Today $2.48/month
  • Reseller Hosting: Normally $24.95; Today $12.48/month
  • VPS Hosting: Normally $19.95; Today $9.98/month
  • Dedicated Servers: Normally $174; Today $87/month

It’s a pretty sweet deal!

Anyway, I thought I’d just pass this along in case anyone else was looking to building a site or getting a domain. c:
Here’s the link again to Hostgator’s page, where you can check out what packages are available right now!

You Are Beautiful

Holy cow! I did not expect such a MASSIVE reaction from everyone on that Lolita post!

You are all so beautiful and wonderful! ;~; I tried to thank everyone individually who commented and gave me such awesome feedback and encouragement. <3

But I also just now put this quick gif together. This is a shout-out to all of the beautiful people reading this blog right now!

I couldn’t be any happier. 8D

Soooooooooo anyway, just thought I’d fill everyone in on what my next plans are for this blog. <3  I am RAPIDLY filling up the shopping pages for the Boutique portion of the site. Hopefully I can open it soon! I know I keep saying that, but it’s because I really do get a little bit closer every day. XD

Fashion posts seem to be a big hit, so I’d like to share some more outfits and coordinates and stuff. There are a couple of category links on the Home page that still lead to 404 pages because there aren’t any posts in that category oAo So, I’ve got to get to work on those. Fashion posts it is!

Also, cartoons! I have not even touched on this blog about how much I love cartoons and toys. With My Little Pony Friendship is Magic’s second season just around the corner, I want to highlight some of my favorite episodes and toys that have been released so far. :D ALSO I have just gotten into the new Thundercats cartoon and want to review it briefly. Maybe I’ll do that one tomorrow. Yeah. We’ll see a Thundercats post tomorrow. BD

ALSOOO fajsldkalf did you guys know that Natsume is releasing two Harvest Moon games in mid-September, within a week apart from one another? O_O The first is Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns, which I’ve been greatly looking forward to because it looks sooooo pretty and has some seriously cute characters. :D The announced release date is September 20 but the guy at Gamestop said they’d have it on the 21st (this seems to be normal for HM games).

The other game is Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny on the Wii. I loved Rune Factory Frontier to bits and I’m a huge fan of the RF series. I might have to skip on this one since I don’t really have the funds to spend on a big game like this, nor the time to sit down and immerse myself in a console game, but I want to keep my eye on it anyway just because I adore the series so much. It ALSO has some pretty rad characters, and the game world is gorgeous. <3 Tides of Destiny’s release date is Sept 27 (which probably means Sept 28).

Hummmmm I think that’s about all the updates I can think of for now. o3o Yeah. Will talk about Thundercats tomorrow and after that I’ll work on filling out all of this blog’s category tags so there won’t be any more 404 errors. Woo!

Btw I totally meant it when I said you all were beautiful. :D I could never properly express how much I appreciate you awesome readers. ; 3;~ HUGS AND KISSES FOREVERRRRRR

Effective Time Management :D

August 2, 2011

Hey, all!

Man, I have still not gotten myself into the habit of blogging here frequently. I’m working on it!

I spent this past weekend working on SO MUCH STUFF. <3 The commissions and Fiverr gigs have been going great. Keep it up, people! I LOVE doing this stuff for you, and I also don’t mind the contributions going toward putting food on my table.

EXCELLENT PROGRESS ON THE BOUTIQUE FRONT, YOU GUYS. I know it seems like zero progress is happening related to the Boutique, but it’s because all of the pages I’m working on are set to Private since I’m still working out kinks and stuff. Things are coming together really smoothly though and I would LOVE to have the shopping cart up and running on this site before the Summer is up!

This post probably doesn’t mean much of anything to anybody reading this, but I just like to post every once in a while just to keep this place alive. WHEN ALL SETTLES DOWN I cannot wait to start using this blog to post shopping excursions and reviews and talk about clothes and makeup and 8D

Yeah, I really need to work on filling out these posts, since a few of the categories on the Home page still just lead to 404 pages. I AM FAILING MY DUTY AS A BLOGGER. ;^; I’m trying to do better!

Maybe I’ll talk about, like, shoes or something before the week is up.

MAYBE A NEW COMIC

about shoes?

New Navigation!

June 14, 2011

Have you guys seeeeeeen the home page lately? 8D

I finally prettied up my table of contents! I think that this Web site accurately summarizes my personality and interests as a whole now, and expresses this on the main page. I hope that people who meander their way on to this site can glimpse at it and at once have an understanding of the content expected to be seen on here.

The navigation sidebar on the left is about to be ravamped, too.

If you check the site frequently, you might catch it gradually filling out. XD

THINGS I NEED TO POST ABOUT SOON:

  • The bloomers I finished sewing like a week ago. XD
  • This one art work I finished several days ago and haven’t posted here yet even though it’s on DA and I promised myself I would update this site simultaneously with any art I posts on DA or Tumblr ARGH.
  • A new comic of some kind.

And that’s it for this post I think.
