The world is white this morning.  The frost is so thick it might as well be a blanket of snow, and the fog is heavy and frozen, the sun full behind it somewhere.  And the world is still sleepy and almost silent.  It's a beautiful day and beautiful way to start a new year.

2015 was hard in many ways.  The death of our furry child after nearly 14 years together.  The death of my grandfather a week after his 104 birthday.  My husband destroying his ankle.  A lot of days we came home crying because our jobs took more from us than we could bare.  Stress weight gain after working so hard to lose the weight in the first place.  The loss of my muse and desire to even log into an MMO game again and the resulting rapid decline of my online social circle.

Granted there's a lot to be thankful for in there, too.  The family got to all come together from all over Western Canada to celebrate my grandpa's 104th birthday!  Our furbaby was only sick a short time instead of spending years and thousands of dollars on vet bills.  My husband had to drive my car because of his ankle, so I had his 5.0 Mustang Convertible to drive all summer.  As stressful as our jobs are, at least our jobs are secure.  Weight gain can be lost again.  And my marriage has never been stronger, especially when we work as a team to keep Imperial Stormtroopers from taking over our base on Hoth.

2016 has some big things to look forward to.  We're going to Disneyland in a few weeks with my entire family (six adults and two kids lol).  We are pretty much committed emotionally to getting a new furbaby (and eventually a second) sometime over the year if we can find a breeder with available puppies.  And I've felt a strong calling to go through the work of training the dog(s) as therapy dogs to take to seniors homes.  I get to work from home a couple of days a week, and I've been able to change my hours a bit to make things less stressful.

Granted, a lot of good and bad can happen in the course of a year.  But I like to hope, as I look out at the crisp, white world, that 2016 is going to be a good one.

NO COMMISSION REQUESTS, PLEASE! I would love to do commissions, but I simply don't have the time to take them on.

"I hate the terms low end and high end, they're all just tools, some are better at certain tasks than others. I see all of us artists as one big community, regardless of what software we choose to use or what sort of job we have." Pixars-Neil Blevins: April, 2013"


Please Note: My images are thoughtfully designed to represent my roleplaying characters. They are not to be used as signatures, forum avatars, or in any other way to represent someone who is not myself or the owner of other named/commissioned characters. Ask before you use.

You are not authorized to use any items contained in my gallery on websites, layouts, blogs, Myspace, Facebook, banners, designs, posters, CDs, CD covers, books, forum avatars, or for any other use without my express permission.


Useful, constructive criticism of my work is always welcome.
