New Crown by manda-j-panda
New Crown
I got this tentacle crown from the Camilla d'Errico and Killer Tentacle Octopus kickstarter! I bought one because I thought they looked fun, and with the idea that it might be doll sized, but I really had no idea what I was buying. The crown was actually smaller than I expected, but it's perfectly SD sized! Marcel was my model for it (totally not his style, but both my girls are bodiless). I just need to figure out how to secure it more securely- I'm thinking a ribbon will work nicely. It has clips to hold it down, but it's difficult to get it securely into the wig.

This was supposed to be my Christmas card this year... but as usual I was too late to actually order them. I would say next year will be different, but it probably won't be, hahaha!
Space between the stars by manda-j-panda
Space between the stars
More stars, just because I love them. If I could coat the ceilings of my house with real ones, I totally would.

I'm sure a lot of you guys thought I fell off the face of the earth due to my long absence... but I'm still around!
I'll be honest- the new DA is killing my laptop- it makes everything so slow that I honestly have been overwhelmed trying to use it on a regular basis. I came through and went through my messages last month, and swore I'd do better... but it just hasn't happened. I still have to answer  some important notes and stuff and I feel bad for putting it off this long. :(

Important news:
I didn't end up going to Minneapolis to school this year, but I was re-accepted, so I'm going to try my hardest to make it work out for this year! It was a serious blow when I found out I wouldn't be able to go, because it was literally a month before I was supposed to leave, and that was one of the reasons I stayed away from this site. I was so disappointed in myself, and I felt like I let so many people down that I just didn't know what to do. Here's hoping this time will work out! (Now that I have a better idea of what I'm doing)

I put Marcel, my Crobidoll Marcel up for sale on Den of Angels. It made me sad to do this, but my girl Maybre has been nothing but a floating head for the last 2 years. I sold all of my other dolls last year in preparation for my move... which didn't happen. Originally, I was hoping to sell Marcel and re-shell him into a YOSD because I've wanted one for a long time. However, I'm not any closer to saving the money for Maybre's body (I suck, I know), so if he sells, the money will go towards finishing Maybre off. If not, I may have to sell my floating heads and just keep Marcel with me. I don't want to haul around a bunch of dolls while in school, so that's another reason I put him up for sale.

I'm thinking about opening an Etsy shop and selling some artwork. Although I need to do some more research because this isn't something I considered when I signed up for Etsy, and I'm pretty sure my user name is mega lame and I didn't take into consideration that I could be stuck with it.

I did some new artwork for my portfolio, so after I clean out my inbox of messages, I'll start to upload some more stuff.
I hope everybody has been doing well!
