Weather Forecast

Mon Apr 6, 2015, 11:44 AM
Here's a quick weather update for my wonderful friends and watchers. :)

Many of you know my family and I have been experiencing some heavy rain storms lately. It looks like we'll continue to have rain for the unforeseeable future, but we're still dancing away and there have been breaks in the clouds here and there letting in some sunlight. We've actually been very humbled and grateful for this experience. While difficult, we've seen many small miracles that have helped us along and taught us a lot. I know not everyone believes in God but if you're familiar with me at all, you know that I do. I've seen His hand again and again in my life - especially during the hard times - and this is no different. He's leading me and my family through this dark storm, showing us that no matter what we're experiencing, no matter how hard it seems, we're never alone and He'll help us find our way.

So no, I still don't know what the future holds for us, but I know it's going to be okay. 

And I apologize for the lack of art. This storm has pulled my focus away and I've been busy trying to take care of other things - if I owe you art, DON'T WORRY. I'll be back on my game soon! Thanks for your patience!

I choose to dance in the rain.

Mon Mar 23, 2015, 12:08 PM
I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone for your support over the weekend! Friday sucked, no doubt about it. I didn't get much accomplished at work because I was so nervous about what was going on. I didn't even eat. We've never experienced anything quite like this before and it wasn't a cool way to start the weekend. I'm still not going to go into detail about what happened because it's not entirely my business to share. It does directly affect me, hence my freak-out on Friday, but that doesn't give me permission to share details.

I will say this - I am SO glad the person who caused all of this is a massive liar, because if what he initially told us was true the situation would have been a whole lot worse. Like possible police involvement. But thanks to the fact that half of what he says isn't true and the other half is a lie means it was all a means to an end and we're better off cutting ties and moving on. Which we have. Once we learned the truth, we felt a lot of relief and it's been easier to put this behind us and look forward to what lies ahead. We're still hurting a bit. Our situation is insecure. There are some things that are unclear and we have a lot of work to do, but we feel an assurance that there IS a plan for our family and that things will work out.

All of that being said, commissions are STILL open and I could really use them. Even more than I did before...

On another sad note, my in-laws had to put their sweet dog Jenny to sleep this last Saturday. (This weekend wasn't the happiest for us) She was 13 1/2 years old and was going downhill fast. We were all amazed she lived as long as she did. We got to go say goodbye to her though, which meant a lot to my husband since they got her when he was in junior high and she was practically his dog. Her passing was very peaceful and I'm sure she's much happier now  - no more pain!

This weekend has shown me once again that sometimes life chooses to rain on us; sometimes it chooses to pour. But we get to choose how we react.
We freaked out a bit at first - I think everyone is entitled to a freak out now and then - but we've decided to dance in the rain and look forward to the sun. :)

I'm not a violent person but...

Fri Mar 20, 2015, 12:10 PM
Seriously. Some people need a good kick to the face. With steel-toed boots. 

I'm literally sick to my stomach I'm so upset right now. Sitting at work, trying not to cry. I don't need any inquiries from curious co-workers. 

It's hard to watch something unfair happen to someone you love, with no way to make it better. No, I won't go into details because it's still fresh and I don't know if anything more will come of it. Which hopefully it won't. I just have this awful feeling and I don't know why. My stomach is all in knots. 

I just...don't get it. Everything happens for a reason, right? Good and bad? It'll all work out, right?

....right?

Kyden's Trunk by shayfifearts
Kyden's Trunk
I don't upload many of my crafty things here - I do a LOT of crafts - but this one means enough for me to share.

Many of you know my husband and I lost our first child. My husband got me an unfinished trunk for Christmas the year after we lost him so I'd have a place to store all our keepsakes. It took me two years to finish it, but I finally did it! You may recognize the design on the side...
Kyden Lamb by shayfifearts

Anywho, I'm quite pleased with how it turned out! It's nice to finally have an official spot for all of Kyden's things.
You can read more about it on my blog!: shayfifearts.com/2015/03/18/ky…

Some fanart featuring Caj from ElementalJess's Summer King Chronicles.
I love Caj. He's one of my favorite characters from the series and I've been wanting to do my own take on him for awhile! I had a lot of fun with this. You can see he has a lot on his mind...poor guy...

Would anyone be interested in a lineart/coloring tutorial? My technique has changed A LOT since my last tutorial so I thought it might be beneficial to update...
