All the cool kids are doing it


My pledge? I promise to make something handmade for the first 5 people who comment on this post. The catch? You must then post this on your own LJ/DW/FB/Twitter/Tumblr (wherever you like) and make something for the first 5 people who comment on it.

The rules? Items must be handmade* by you and the recipients must receive them before the end of 2012. So what are you waiting for?

*when it says handmade, it doesn't have to be anything major. It can be anything as simple as some graphics or fic (if you don't want to give out your address), or a card, or origami, crafts, sewing, knitting, food related, anything at all.

Yeah. I don't have anything to do this year so I can do art or music videos or custom tee shirts or come over and tile your bathroom. Forget that last one but let me know if you want to play.

Now I'm off to tile my bathroom.

Happy Birthday, Shimotsuki!

I don't know if it's a coincidence that a third Series of Downton Abbey was officially announced today, but I think that's a pretty nice birthday pressie!

I still owe you an illustration of a scene from one of your R/T stories so I'll just use this occasion to re-up my pledge. 

have a lovely day!

On the good ship

Spent almost as much time learning how to upload this video as it took to make it! For the Battleships challenge over atlovebelowstairs Go Team Anna/Bates!

As i was saying...

Despite appearances to the contrary, I am not in a "fewest and farthest between" LJ post competition with gilpin25 (Which I won, BTW.) I can't tell you how many posts went through my head that never made it to the keyboard. They were all brilliantly witty and full of charming stories and I'm sorry you'll never get to read them.

what i did on my summer vacationCollapse )

So, was it worth the wait? ;)


Non-sparkly Birthday wishes!

 Hey shimotsuki ! It's still your birthday so I'm not too late to wish you a happy one... or to hope that it was a good one! I'd like to offer you some Remus and Tonks birthday art. You should realize though, that it may not arrive until your next birthday. ;) You can either give me some prompts or request a scene from one of your stories.

Happy Birthday!


Because everybody's doing it

I'll be getting to the Meme that's making its way 'round in a moment but there's this movie coming out in of couple of weeks that I am super excited about and wondered if any of you are too? No... it's not Deathly Hallows though I am sort of getting excited about that too. 

If I've done this right, you'll get the trailer for "The Kings Speech". Cross your fingers...

I have to tell you that I've been watching the various trailers way too much. I mean come on... it's got Colin Firth! In a uniform! I've already got four of my girlfriend's lined up to see it but I have a feeling this is going to be one of those movies that I see over and over an then watch constantly when the DVD comes out.

Meme time.

A 2 ZCollapse )

I hope to get started on another Remus and Tonks piece that's been on the back burner for quite a while. It's had a few starts and stops but the sketch is pretty much ready to be scanned in and then the real fun begins.

Vote tomorrow, those of you Stateside.

Birthday Art for Gilpin (still 25?)

 So last year at this time, I asked gilpin25 to choose a canon Remus/Tonks moment and I would illustrate it for her as a birthday gift. I didn't say which birthday so here, a year later and in honor of this year's birthday, is Remus and Tonks bringing Harry's trunk to No. 12 Grimmauld. I should point out that I did not re-read the section so if there are any glaring canon points I missed, chalk it up to artistic license.

I hope you have a wonderful birthday Karen, with lots of awesome presents (some of which may or may not be a horse). Hope you enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed putting off doing it until the last minute!

What's he got in here anyway?Collapse )

Contrary to what it states, LJ is not linking this thumbnail to the full size picture in my gallery so until it magically fixes itself, here's the direct link.


Happy Happy Joy joy

 To sspring92 , our resident R/T cheerleader, the very happiest of birthdays to you. :)

I wanna go back to my little grass shack

I'm back from my holiday on Kaua'i and have been sorting through the over two thousand pictures taken by me and my siblings since I got home. Fortunately for you, I am not going to post all of them. Unfortunately for you, I am going to post quite a few. ;) Once I'm done, I need to get started on my Summer Hallows Jumble entry. I've got the beginnings of an idea and very few obligations for the next few weeks so I should be able to contribute some art. Wish me luck!

Kauai No Ka OiCollapse )

So, now I'm well-rested and ready to get back into some R/T art. And I've got some catching up to do around LJ. 

Aloha and Mahalo for stopping by.
