G'Day!

When I typed "Lost In Space" as my journal entry, I am not referring to the retro television series nor the movie that came out in the 1990's. When I refer to "Lost In Space", I am stating that I have been gone from DeviantArt for so long that I might as well have been somewhere in the realms of deep interstellar space. I realize that my last journal entry was more than a year ago. I have a lot of catching up to do on this site. For the longest time, I had forgotten my password and it wasn't until today that it suddenly clicked in my memory. I see that this site has changed, whether for better or worse. I wonder who is still on here (that I knew when I used to be on DA from 2005-2009). 

I still haven't drawn a single thing since 2009. Will it ever come back to me? Who knows? In a world of constant digi-this and digi-that, it seems traditional art no longer has a place. I miss traditional art. I love those who still use traditional mediums. Don't get me wrong: I am not bashing those who prefer digi-art. I enjoy so much of it. All of you are so talented! However, traditional art will always have a place in my heart and I prefer it over digi. I've noticed a lot traditional artists have gone digi. Has the whole world become digitized? 

I haven't continued on my novel either. Last time I worked on it was 2010.

It is rather difficult to work on any art or writing when life has become busy. Ever since grad school (January 2010-May 2012, which kept me incredibly busy) and my job as a Code Enforcement Officer (which I have been doing since April of 2012, working 10 hour shifts), I find myself doing other things instead of my old hobbies. I do miss drawing at times. I especially miss writing. (I need to finish that silly little novel, that way I get let a former English professor read it.) At least I am still into one hobby, which is making costumes. (I've been doing that since 2003, for those of you new to me.) Last year was Steampunk (at WildWildWest Con in Tucson, AZ, and had three outfits), two comic cons (both in Albuquerque, NM, which I have been both Jedi and Sith - so I've made Star Wars costumes), and the Arizona Renaissance Festival (I was British Royalty - circa 1520, like Henry VIII's 2nd wife, Anne Bolyen - one day and a Scottish lass the other day.) Earlier this year, I made two more Steampunk outfits (one of my Madam J dresses and a military airship cadet the next day) and once again, the AZRF (where I was a barbarian one day - that outfit was so much fun to make, and I want to eventually upgrade it with armour - and a bellydancer the next). James (my life partner of 5 years & 3 months) also makes costumes and attends all these events with me. We also went to the Santa Fe Renaissance Fair (here in NM), and I once again wore my 1520 gown while James with an early 1600's mercenary. The 2nd day I wore my belly dancer outfit again (and upgraded version).

Upcoming events for 2015 is the AZRF once again (we love it so much!) and I am going as a fairy/fae. (I"m not sure what James will wear.) I have to wear something comfy because guess what? I am pregnant. Yes, that's right. :) Today I am at 16 weeks and 1 day. I've been very calm and Zen-like about the whole thing. I never wanted children but some things are just meant to be. James is thrilled (he's always wanted children). It helps when your life partner is happy about it. So, because of that fact, come next February, I will not be able to fit into my RenFair outfits, which is why I am going to be a fairy (easy to make and comfortable). For WildWildWest Con, I'm going to make an Edwardian dress. Edwardian dresses (particularly in the 1910-1912 time frame) had empire waistlines, so that will be comfortable for me come this March, when I'll be ever bigger! My life is changing once again but I have always embraced change. (Except digi-art. Just kidding! ;)

I will do my best to visit the galleries of those I interacted with. For those that are new to me, I will have to visit your galleries as well.

I hope someday that inspiration will strike me once again and I can get back to drawing. Those Copic Markers have been sitting in storage since 2009. I hope they haven't dried out! *Eek*
