Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above,
Would drain the ocean dry.
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.

Thank You Mystery Promoter!!

So I just came on here, glanced over at my sidebar, and was like, “Wait a second...that’s my...Ah!!”

I have no idea who did this, but thank you SO much for promoting my Fire Emblem piece! It was a huge surprise and so sweet of you – I really appreciate it! Feel free to let me know who you are so I can thank you personally, but if you’re going anonymous then I really hope you see this. This means a lot to me! Thanks again!! ^_^

All Done!

Hello again! Today was my last day of work at the Halloween store, so I’m happy to say I’ll have time to draw once again. My supposed part-time job ended up nearly full-time, so I’ve been really busy the last several weeks. Earlier today we worked on packing up the remaining merchandise and tearing down the store. Good to have time to rest now ^-^

How have you guys been? Did you do anything fun for Halloween? My husband’s family has a Halloween party every year, and we had a great time visiting with them last weekend. I dressed up as Howl from Howl’s Moving Castle, complete with a little Calicifer I made ^^ Ironically I won the “Most Beautiful Costume” award in spite of dressing as a man...I guess that’s Howl for you XD

Coming up this weekend, my dad is getting married! That means lots of changes coming up for the family, but I’m very happy for him and my soon-to-be stepmom. Some of you know my mom passed away about three years ago...it’s been hard, but by God’s grace we’re all getting through it. I love my family so much ^-^

And I love you guys, too! Hope your Novembers are off to a good start!

EDIT:

Okay, since silvershriek asked so nicely, here’s a shot of my Howl costume. This was a trial-run before the party...it was tough to get any good pictures on the day since my photographer (aka my husband) chose a costume that severely limited his vision XD

My best attempt at a Howl pose ^^;
