All my newest submissions!


I know I've been  asking for a lot of support lately, and I've been very bad at answering messages as well. It's been...quite frankly, it's been hell since August. One bad thing followed by another. I rarely have felt like there's breathing room or a time when there isn't something in the back of my mind. Job problems, health problems, family problems, family health problems, financial problems, computer problems, etc. It's been a downpour.

Our cat, Fatso, is around 17 years old. We adopted her and her daughter, Chicken, from a pet shelter shortly after we moved into our new home. She lives at my parent's house and has essentially raised all of our pets to include two weenie dogs, a golden retriever, and of course her own daughter. She's a loving ball of lump that always has something to say, always wants a warm lap, always wants to be loved on. She purrs constantly. Even people who don't like cats adore her. She's just loving. She's had some health problems this year one after the other. She had an accident earlier this year where her hip was bruised pretty badly. In the last few months she has lost three pounds. For a cat- that's significant. This week she stopped eating entirely. We brought her in and they found nothing wrong in her blood, urine, or x-rays. She had redness in her mouth but that's it, so mom had them clean her teeth. When we picked her up today, they had extracted 5 teeth and found lumps in her mouth. We won't know if it's cancer or not for a few days but she's so frail right now. She's old, yes, but she's had so much life in her up to the start of this week. We're skeptical about our vet because they seemed to have little care or compassion.

If you're the praying sort, please keep her in your prayers. If she can be healed, I would love to have her for a few more years. If not... I don't want her to suffer, and my family will need peace to get through her loss. I hate thinking this way but it's hard.

I'm waiting to hear back from the doctors on another test I've had on myself recently. I won't go into it, but it's something I needed looked into. I also am meeting with an old boss tomorrow before work. My current boss has cut more hours away from me and right now we've cut to the bone on expenses. My old boss may have an in somewhere and if I can get another job, maybe I can turn things around to a small degree. At least financially and insurance wise.

I'm sorry to be such a downer lately. ><

Just because...

"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You too? I thought I was the only one."

C.S. Lewis

"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."

C.S. Lewis

"The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us."

C.S. Lewis

"If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world."

C.S. Lewis


"We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be."

C.S. Lewis

 "What draws people to be friends is that they see the same truth. They share it."

C.S. Lewis

Commissions & Trades I'm waiting on: 

Some of these are pretty recent but there are a few that are slowly gathering dust. I'm leaving them up as a reminder to myself (and hopefully the other artists involved). 

At this point...these sit here as "Buyer Bewares": 

:bulletblue: Two character full body lineart from :iconhoneyroastedferrets: - My end of the trade is complete as of September 14, 2009

:bulletblue: Five Chibis from :iconmalisjuju: - Paid on December 29,2012 | 1/5 received |

Legacy of Para group on DA!

:iconkohu-arts: and myself decided it's about time we start up a group for ParaChiMar: The Legacy of Para. For those interested this group is pretty much just a good place to dump all of our LoP artwork, trades, commissions, and fanart into. I've also made a small stamp collection to celebrate. Check us out. :3
