DO YOU KNOW ME IN REAL LIFE? PLEASE READ THIS FIRST BEFORE CONTINUING TO READ MY DEVIANTART JOURNALS

--------------------------------


I suppose I'll pop in for a late October update :D Before long it'll be...ugh...November. My least favourite month.

Then again, I've been liking it more in my older age since it's the month I actually get to enjoy what I like about the Christmas season without having to do the other stuff ( mostly the actual events...having everything ready/wrapped, visiting family, loads of driving, etc. ) Not that I hate my family but you know how I am. It's always an anxiety ridden affair.

BUT that's future Jo's problem. No point in freaking out about it for months. Better to just ignore it and then freak out for only a couple days.

The other day I went to my friends' mom's house for my BFF's birthday party ^o^ It was fun and her mother-in-law[My husband's and my best friends are married to each other] made delicious home cooked english-style food. I got to have a yorkshire pudding! Despite how white I am I actually have no english relatives XD I'm more of Swedish/German/possibly Romanian mix. Mostly German. I was pretty good, I don't think I was too obnoxious or anything. I did drink to keep the anxiety down but not very much. Only one high anxiety moment when like 5 women in the room were all commenting on how much weight I've lost and looking at me all at once @_@;;;; In my head I was like "OH GOD OH GOD THEY'RE ALL LOOKING WHY DIDN'T I WEAR A BIG SWEATER JESUS" But my friend saw me in distress and changed the subject <3 Don't get me wrong, I like compliments like anyone else but too many people all looking at me and commenting on my appearance is a bit much for me ^^;

I suppose I've been battling my anxiety more than usual lately. I wonder what the cause is? Maybe I stored up anxiety in my fat cells and losing weight is making it all come out XD I'M NOT EVEN TOTALLY KIDDING WHO KNOWS THE BODY IS INSANE :lmao: But it's probably just the season. There are a lot of obligations in the 'holiday' chunk of the year. Thanksgiving, then Halloween right after, then November....ughhhhh November. It's the worst season for people harassing you in public. First the poppy sales, then right after the 11th, the bell-santas come out. It's a nightmare for someone like me. I prefer the un-manned food-bank boxes. You drop your soup and nutella in and you get the fuck out of there.

But hey. Let's stop dwelling on things I don't like.

I bought ( well, ALAN bought ) me a halloween costume ( It's also 'day of the dead' style...I'm pretty into that look this year. It's so pretty ) for handing out candy this year and today I'm going to visit my mom and carve pumpkins ^o^ She said she's baking focaccia too so I'm pumped for that. My projects are all going well too FOR ONCE XD I've got some nice items I'm going to submit today. I'm really happy with how my day of the dead-style fox came out. I was worried about all the tiny details but they're nice! The roses especially went well. I'm also almost done my Halloween picture of my OCs. Sid looks unsettling, Raven looks sexy, Farz is...well he's doing a good job. I decided to be super nostalgic about it XD I can't believe how long it's been since I've drawn a scythe. I used to be all about that shit.

Which kind of reminds me that I should work on that while my pendants dry instead of TYPING INTO MY JOURNAL INCESSANTLY.

Most of my sculpts are made from a mix of super sculpy and sculpy firm :D It's about 1/4 super sculpy and 3/4 sculpy firm.

and Thank you! <3

Can I ask for some paint advise? I'm making another Toothless sculpt (if your interested I have a pre-baked pik up), and am wondering how to do those really feint markings he has on his sides and wings, do you maybe have any advise?
