That's insane.
I hardly use it anymore but still, wow. 
Thank you all so much! :glomp: :heart:
And I really want to do something special for you guys. But....I have no idea what!
So I'm leaving it up to all you glorious people! What do you want to see from me?
Thank you all so much!
The great author and theologian Clive Staples Lewis died 48 years ago today.

:heart: November 22, 1963 :heart:

I would just like to take a moment to say thank you, Mr. Lewis.
Since I was just a baby my mother would read me The Chronicles of Narnia. Through the magic of Narnia you taught me to love the Great Lion, and through Him I have come to know my Lord.

From the sneaky and sinister snares of Screwtape to the simple beauty of Mere Christianity, everything you ever wrote shines on today, brighter than ever. I only pray it will continue to shine for generations to come.

A toast! To C. S. Lewis, to Narnia, and to Aslan! May He rule forever! :w00t:

So our local county fair just ended last week and OMGOSH I AM SO EXCITED!!!
I won Grand Champ in Open Class Photography, and also Grand Champ under 4-H Art for my Goat!  fav.me/d277ykw
Not only that but my bunny Spot won Reserve Champion and I got a trophy!!!  
I also got several blue and purple ribbons for art, photography and rabbits.
Both Spot and my Artwork are going to the Kansas State Fair! :woohoo:

So yeah, I'm happy. :love:

On a side note, I'm thinking of getting a Flemish Giant to keep in the house as a pet, but we've never kept rabbits in the house before and mom wants to make me keep it in my room....So I'm not sure.  Anyone else have experience with this? ^^;

HEEELLLLOOOOO~ people who's inbox this is spamming up! :wave:

Just letting yall know I'm still alive - and while I currently don't have access to any kind of scanner, I managed to convince a friend's parents to let me use theirs to finally complete LUGIA. Nothing else.  
And thus the dry, artless desert of scannerless-ness continues. :|

Enjoy my Lugia 'cause it's all you'll get for a while folks.....Sorry. ^^;

On the bright side I got to go see How To Train Your Dragon in theaters and I'm STILL on a massive high from it!!! :la: :la: :la: I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE DVD TO COME OUT SO I CAN TIE ALL MY FRIENDS TO CHAIRS AND FORCE THEM TO WATCH IT!!!!!!! :eager:

Uh. ^^; I mean......Invite them over....So...we can watch it together....Yeah. :evillaugh:

First off I want to apologize to everyone for not responding to comments or thanking for faves/watches/ect. I've been kindof busy...
I fully intend to get back to you all on the comments when I can, but I have a backlog of about 870 comments so bear with me! ^^;
This may take a while.....

As for the faves/watches/ect. I'm afraid I can't thank for faves anymore. :(
I'll still thank for watches but I just don't have time for fave thanking so if anyone of my favers is reading this now, thank you!

Well, I guess I need to adress the title here.
You read right, I'm not going to submit any more artwork for a while. I'm having to send my computer back to the school and at the moment Photoshop is in the process of deactivating and unistalling.
I'll have access to my mom's laptop for the semester and I have permissions to put art software on it, but my computer times will be severly limited until I can get a laptop of my own.

Lanz, Kylie, I owe you both Christmas art still - don't let me forget it! ;P
And I promised an Eevee to a few people so I'll do my best to get that done as well.

For the present I have a room to clean, schoolwork to do, books to read and I have Mass tomorrow morning! :XD:  
( Oooh, I hope they play that one hymn-AGH I can't remember the name! :dohtwo: )


On a completly unrelated and irrelevant note, who else can't wait for Spring? I'm SO over this cold weather! :giggle:
Ugh, and I'm going to have to walk down the street in these temperatures during the March For Life in DC. :omg:
*sigh* Oh well.
It was my choice and it's worth it for the women and children! :iconanimefaceplz:
I'll just offer my sufferings as a penance. :aww:  

( No mean comments on this please, I don't need more hatespew. :|  )

I still hope Spring comes soon - warm weather and green things and flowers and EASTER! :clap: Oh, and a bunch of new Pokemon games come out in March! :woohoo: I do so hope the creek has filled up again...:aww:

God Bless, everyone! Peace and Joy for you and all your kin. :hug:

I gotta say I am absolutely THRILLED about Christmas tomorrow! :woohoo:
( The very last candle on the Advent wreath just screams in anticipation :giggle: )

Christmas time is the most magical time of year! There's so much warmth and joy and celebration going on....:love:
But there's only one problem. Too many people forget or completely ignore the whole reason they are celebrating in the first place!:hmm:
I've talked to a lot of people who say that Christmas has lost it's magic for them.
"What's the point?" they say. "Why do we bother with all the rush and fuss and hubbub anyway?
Just to get some people some presents and call it a holiday? I can do that on their birthday!"

That's where the problem is. They are missing the point.
Some people don't like Christmas, some overdo it with presents and festivities, and both groups are missing it completely! :no:

So let me be the one to remind everyone here:
Christmas isn't about presents.
It isn't about shiny trees.
Or shopping sales.
Or egg-nog.
Or parties.

Those things are nice, but a celebration means nothing without a true, compelling reason behind it.
JESUS IS THE REASON. :w00t:

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."

Thousands of years ago a Child was born in a humble manger, surrounded by Shepherds, animals, and three Kings from faraway lands.
This Child's birth would not only create the most celebrated holiday in the world, but also alter our very timeline!
Every minute of every day of every year we live is based and numbered from the day of His birth.
Pretty impressive, isn't it? ;)

That is what Christmas is about. Christ.
His Birth. His Life. His Sacrifice. His LOVE.

1 John 4, 7-14
"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world to DIE that we might live through Him.
This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
No-one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us.
We know that we live in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.
And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent His Son to be the Saviour of the world. "

So this Christmas season let us celebrate, be grateful, be joyful, and let Him share His Love for us, through us.

God Bless,
Peace Be With You,
And MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! :clap::clap::clap:

My blessings for you and all of your kin! :hug: :heart:

Oh and HAVE A COOKIE!!!!! :drool:

Looks like I'm pulling out of Insight Online schools.
I have been chronically behind in my work for a while and I have issues concentrating while on the computer with all it's shiny distractions.....
:O_o:

Not to mention it runs through the public school systems and if you've seen my latest stamp random-gal.deviantart.com/art/… you can tell I've been looking into the deepest workings of public schools and DO NOT like what I see. The teachers are great in Insight and the school is considerably more conservative than most, but they still have to use government issued study materials and I have noticed quite a bit of bias.
This includes presenting scientific theories as undeniable fact - something I find quite dishonest. :unimpressed:

My mom decided to look back into our old homeschooling program "Seton" and it looks like they have a lot to work with.
Internships are available through the program, as well as the ability to take elective classes at any university of choice.

Not to mention availability of classes in Catholic Aplogetics ;P
I'm definitely taking at least one of those classes!

The only real problem is that leaving Insight means relinquishing my precious laptop....... :sniff:
Curses. :shakefish:

But lucky me my mom said I can earn myself a new
( nicer ) laptop with straight A's! :w00t:
That means vigorous unrelenting work until January 1st but....
I'll do it!

On a different note, my parents have scheduled a trip to Washington DC in January;
just in time for the March For Life! :excited:
A bunch of girls from the Catholic girl's forum "TrueGirls Online" are going too. We wanted to meet up but couldn't decide how to recognize each other, so we decided on easily-identifiable, odd or unusual hats. :XD:
I'm wearing an abort73.com T-shirt and fox-ears hat from :iconthe-cute-storm:

THIS WILL BE FUN

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

I also want to bring some attention to
this awesome Pokeswap pic from
:icondesperateduchess: ~ desperateduchess.deviantart.co…:
It's SO Cute! :iconeeeeeplz:

Love yall! :huggle:

(You may laugh if you like.)

~~~

What is your best trait?

Creativity.......Maybe? I can't say I have many good traits......:hmm:

~~~

Have you ever done something stupid, random and tottally pointless just for the fun of it?

> Can you say, MY LIFE? lol JK.
But I do do stupid random things a lot. A LOT.
Like dancing the Caramelldansen in public.
Or saying random things like Zucchini that have
nothing to do with the conversation but just popped into my head.
Did you know if you mix Squid and Fish you get a Squish? :crazy:

~~~

What is the strangest thing you have ever seen on the streets?

> Amish wagons in a Wal-Mart parking lot, and an old lady pushing a Chihuahua dressed in a pink sweater down the street in a shopping cart. Oh, and a groundhog. :aww:

~~~

Have you ever entered any contests? Did you win?

> Won 5th in a junior martial arts tournament when I was 10,  3rd in a swim meet,  4th for my show rabbit at the County Fair,  
and 1st Premium in art and photography at the County Fair. Plus a few wins at Pokemon Pre-Release Tournaments.
Nothing big though. ^^;

~~~

~~~

It's just sad that all that deep, meaningful stuff got replaced by a candy-toting rabbit though...:no:

~~~

Do you believe in Aliens and UFO's?

> Sure I do! We really can't be the ONLY intelligent beings in this universe!

I really think anything is possible. Though I won't be holding my breath and waiting for something spectacular to happen! :XD:

~~~

Do you believe in alternate universes?

>Like  I said before, anything is possible.
