For all Chickensmoothie members, you know what this means.

I am desperately calling out to anyone who has the means to get URs or who has URs to help me re-complete my collection.. which has been incomplete for 2 years. I am poor at trading, by poor i mean disgustingly bad. I don't have the knowledge or will to brave the forums to trade for them.

Thanks a lot for any assistance.

My good friend :iconsimonala: is really in need of some help. She is selling some designs for cash, beautiful designs at really cheap prices. If you could spare a moment to look or pass on the word, or even purchase if possible should one take your fancy, it would be appreciated.



Thanks a lot guys!
I just want to thank everyone who was nice enough to wish me a happy birthday today. Really, you gave me more smiles than I thought would be possible today, you made it worthwhile for me.

Today really was a bit of a lax day, I didn't do a whole lot. 

After breakfast I went to play Ragnarok Online 2 with my hubby and Tess for a bit.

Then I went on my wii to play Animal Crossing (Let's go to the City aka City Folk)

[Btw looking for fruit thats not apples (my town's fruit) if anyone wants to visit me and swap fruit for trees I would much appreciate that!! Just note me with your friend code, character name and town name (please spell them correctly for me!) I really want to get my AC buzz on before I get my 3ds and get new leaf.]

Speaking of that.. presents I got..

Hubby bought me a little vaporeon pokedoll <33
And I bought 2/3 of my own presents right now (An 8 inch vaporeon plush, and a little mami tomoe chibi figurine) and ill also be getting a 3DS XL when I get around to it soon.
I also recieved quite a few pieces of gift art from so very many people, and thankyou to each and every one of you for taking the time out to draw for me, no matter how big, small, plain or colourful it was, I treasure every single one of them.

So in short.. it was an ok birthday :) Thankyou everyone for being wonderful friends and giving me a reason to smile.

Just a little journal to wish every one of my followers a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year, incase I don't speak to you personally before then.

I hope you all have a wonderful time and get what you want from Santa :)

Since we seem to have'' somehow'' bypassed the mystical end of the world, here's hoping that's a sign for good luck in the new year!

Thanks for your continued support and watch.

Perhaps my Christmas Wish will be that sometime next year I may get my first premium, who knows.

I also want to set up my payment stuff in the new year to sell designs/comissions, fingers crossed for that xD

- Lots o' love, Vampy xx
My writing entry for Cruinndrac Farms Winter Holidays Contest!
:iconcruinndracfarms:
Written from the perspective of my wyrm, Emeni.
------------------------------------------------

It's yet again that time of year,
there's preparations to be done,
the bitter cold is drawing near,
the autumn lost and winter won.

I scurry out from my hollow home,
gathering up my trusty axe,
into the woods where I will roam,
the foliage covering my squiggle tracks.

I seek out a tree that's not to tall,
with branches not too big in size,
up the trunk to the branch I crawl,
the greatest sight before my eyes.

The forest stands in all its' splendour,
a mix of brown, gold and green,
atop which sits a layer of tender
snow of the whitest, purest sheen.

No time to stop and dawdle of course,
I test the branch with my spiral horn,
my axe gripped tightly in my jaw,
I aim for a spot that's slightly worn.

I swing and chop through wood and bark,
it slowly gives and falls below,
towards the ground I then embark,
my firewood nestled on crispest snow.

With branch secure in my tails' hold
I make my way back t'wards my den,
squirming back home with movements bold,
accompanied by song of nearby wren.

Within my homely stump once more,
bark stripped to dry to its very best,
to join the sprigs and downy core
of my warm and comfy winters' nest.

The branch of course will not go to waste,
I cut and store it without delay,
for into fire it will be placed,
to warm me on a colder day.

It isn't long before I hear,
the sound of fellow Wyrms nearby,
I peep outside and meep with cheer,
and beckon them in to rest and dry.

For Winter, you see, is a time of year,
that follows surely after fall,
when friends come by to spread some festive cheer,
and wish a Merry Christmas to wyrm and all.
Poke-Village App: Arora by Xantaria
:iconpoke-village:


1.) Describe your character's relationship with their mother or their father, or both. Was it good? Bad? Were they spoiled rotten, ignored? Do they still get along now, or no?

The relationship between Arora and her Parents is somewhat rocky... The family is semi-wealthy, has a large estate, and could buy just about whatever they wanted. Arora has never been a fan of the upper-class society, she hated the parties and the dresses and having to act a certain way. Her 2 brothers are completely different.. they lap up the social scene of that. Arora is an independant spirit.. and her parents never approved of her artistic persuits. If they found her covered in paint with a beautiful picture to show for it.. she was scolded. She eventually took to hiding her paintings before they could be taken away, and when she was old enough, simply left. She didn't care about money or social cameraderie... she simply wanted to be happy. Her parents never made her happy.

2.) What are your characters most prominent physical features?

The tail would have to be the biggest prominent feature. It has a mind of it's own and although it is a part of her, they still have disagreements from time to time. It complains when it wants something and it doesn't like people making Arora upset/angry.. as it feels the same way. It can lash out on its own but for the most part it just stays helpful and acts as a lookout. No one can sneak up on her or misbehave behind her.. and if you do.. don't stand too close! xD

3.) Name one scar your character has, and tell us where it came from. If they don't have any, is there a reason?

She doesn't have any.. painting isn't exactly a dangerous hobby.

4.) How vain is your character? Do they find themselves attractive?

She is mostly concerned over her appearance when it comes to her hair.. everything else is just keeping herself clean and tidy .. she is a school teacher after all. As long as she can do her job and not ruin her clothes in the process (too much) then it's not a problem. She think's she's ok looking, she's never had anyone tell her so or otherwise, however, though she is looking forward to finding a guy to make her feel that way (though she won't admit that....)

5.) What's your character's ranking on the KINSEY SCALE?

Pure heterosexual but has no qualms about anyone else. She's not bashful when it comes to nudity (life drawing classes?) but she wouldn't parade herself around the street naked!

6.) Describe your character's happiest memory.

Leaving home and never looking back.. getting her job as an art teacher..  those two.

7.) Is there one event or happening your character would like to erase from their past?

The day her parents found a stash of her paintings and forced her to watch them burn.

8.) Day of Favorites! What's your character's favorite ice cream flavor? Color? Song? Flower?

~Favorite Ice Cream: Toffee
~Favorite Color: She's not partial to anything particular, but has a fondness for yellow :P?
~Favorite Song: Anything classical.. it's relaxing to do her art to.
~Favorite Flower: She absolutely loves flowers, so anything would make her happy, though she has a fondness for the small and often missed Daisy.

9.) Who does your character trust?

In her job, she puts a lot of trust and care into her students. She has high expectations for them so she trusts them to work hard. With other villagers, she generally trusts most people up front who don't seem to be causing any problems/trouble, but to get her complete trust she would have to be quite close to them.

10.) Can you define a turning point in your character's life? Multiples are acceptable.

The first time would be when she realised her tail could be interacted with a little.. it was like the only 'person' who didn't criticise her.
The second would be leaving home.. grabbing anything dear to her and just leaving without much of a word.. getting on a bus and going wherever it went.. moving on this way until she found the village.

11.) Is there an animal you equate with your character?

A g..giraffe? :iconpapcryplz: but uh.. when she's angry.. a bull? Lol... :iconlazycryplz:

12.) How is your character with technology? Super savvy, or way behind the times? Letters or email?

She has no problem with technology, but since she does a lot of work and puts a lot of time into her creativity.. hanging around on phones or computers isn't something that tends to happen a lot.

13.) What does your character's bed look like when he/she wakes up? Are the covers off on one side of the bed, are they all curled around a pillow, sprawled everywhere? In what position might they sleep?

Well, she normally sleeps on her side with her tail out of the bed (which curls up around and back onto the bed so it can sleep comfortably). In the morning she usually doesn't make the bed.. she has on more than one occasion jumped out of bed struck with inspiration and started creating in her pyjamas.. even with her hair all over the place doing crazy bedhairness. When she was younger she was able to pull her tail around and hug onto that and fall asleep.. she's too big/tall to do that now sadly.

14.) How does your character react to temperature changes such as extreme heat and cold?

She's not too fussed about temperature, she dresses moderately for whatever conditions.. though she would prefer to stay inside if it's really cold.. sit by a fire and sketch something.. iduno. :iconimsotiredplz:

15.) Is your character an early morning bird or a night owl?

Definately more night owl.. but she can get up early or late depending on what needs to be done.. or when she wants to go somewhere particular for creative reasons. (Sunset/Sunrise.. that sort of thing)

16.) Are there any blood relatives that your character is particularly close with, besides the immediate ones? Cousins, Uncles, Grandfathers, Aunts, ect. Are there any others that your character practically considers a blood relative?

Not really.. definately not her parents or brothers. The closest person she probably had back home as a child was one of the servants.. but he was fired for encouraging her. Her tail is probably her closest 'relative' -shot-

17.) What's your character's desk/workspace look like? Are they neat or messy?

MESSY. Paint/Pencils/Brushes/Papers/Photos/THINGS EVERYWHERE. EVERYWHERE.

18.) Is your character a good cook? What's their favorite recipe, whether they're good or not? (Microwave mac-and-cheese applies.)

She's not an amazing cook.. she can get a little distracted and burn things. Instant noodles work just fine for her most nights.. orz. She does love a good home cooked meal though.. when she finds time.. or someone makes it for her :iconureshiiplz:

19.) What's your character's preferred means of travel?

Walking is just fine.. but in future she hopes to get a moped.. she wants to own one of those so badly x3 (She would have bought one already but she doesn't want to spend any money from her parents.. wants to earn it herself)

20.) Does your character have any irrational fears?

Hmmmm.. not that I can think of. Maybe her parents finding her... ^^; ?

21.) What would your character's CUTIE MARK be?

A paintbrush streaming out colourful glory.

22.) If your character could time travel, where would they go?

Back home.. to before her parents burnt her work.. to prevent that from happening. I can't think of any other instances.. she's content where she is.

23.) Is your character superstitious?

Sure, she's open to pretty much everything, she doesn't discount something without proof it's a hoax.

24.) What might your character's ideal romantic partner be?

Someone who will tolerate her creative mess! Haha.. she wants a tall guy (taller than her anyhow), with a strong personality, someone who won't upset her or maker her mad.. or if they do.. that they can calm her with simple words or actions. Someone who appreciates the smaller things in life, who doesn't always look at the future but is content to go with the flow. Someone who would on the spur of the moment take her out and treat her to a nice meal and a walk on the beach. She seeks spontaneity, openness, comfort, acceptance, laughter and love.

25.) Describe your character's hands. Are they small, long, calloused, smooth, stubby?

Average.. not smooth.. perhaps a little toughened up from working with paint, clay and other art materials.. idk?

26.) Second day of favorites! Favorite comfort food, favorite vice, favorite outfit, favorite hot drink, favorite time of year, and favorite holiday?

~Favorite Comfort Food: Apples. Anything with apples.
~Favorite Vice: Painting.
~Favorite Outfit: The old, comfortable clothes with 'creative staining' on that she wears when doing messy projects.
~Favorite Hot Drink: Cocoa
~Favorite Time of Year: All of them.. every one of them has something that inspires her.
~Favorite Holiday: Valentines Day She's not fussed.. all of them are fun.

27.) If your character's life was a genre, what would it be?

A tragic fable.

28.) How does your character smell? Do they wear perfume or cologne?

She loves flowery perfumes.. since she can't find an apple one. :iconmingplz:

29.) Write a letter to your character, from yourself.

Arora,

I know it's hard to be yourself since you were forced not to be growing up.. but you can do what you like now.. be who you really are. When you get upset, try not to stomp on people hurt anyone in the process.. there are people who do/will care about you and accept you as you are.. keep searching for them. Don't get too caught up in your troubles and forget to look at those around you.. make friends and be happy.

30.) Tag someone else!

:iconenteiseesplz: Tailic... Tails.. Tails... did you do this yet? .... Do this. You too Pyre.

Congrats to :iconthealbinobunny: for catching my Kiriban.

Let me know what you want draw and in what way (as mentioned previously).

:iconcongratsplz:
Thanks for the support from people who helped me with reporting and dealing with a certain Deviantart user -cough- who decided that using art I drew of my deceased pet as their own, and modifying my poem I wrote in full feelings for my dog to suit her own age, basically lying about ever being the owner of 'my' dog and trying to gain deviantart points and art for her in her memory.

You are a sick sick person. You might have blocked me from commenting on your profile and art, and you may now have admitted that you blatantly did what I just mentioned, but the fact you did it in the first place, and what's more with the 'excited' emotion as a tag? is disgusting. How could you be excited about earning points and art from someone elses upset? That dog was a huge part of my life for 10 years before I moved country and away from her and my family, I then had to not see her for a few years and then she got sick and died, so kudos to you for just.. ENJOYING that.

Sicko.

Also while we are at it, i'd love to point out that you are an atrocious art thief. Stealing, claiming and using linearts and artwork from Chickensmoothie users to suit your own comissions and gains.. you truly are pathetic. I hope you get banned.. from the bottom of my heart.

Now excuse me while I go and draw some more art.. from scratch.. on paper.. (you might not be familiar with this concept, it's called being original.)

:iconrosestareplz:
That Kiriban is creepin up on y'all slowly :)

See 3 journals ago for info about it~
I've never done one of these before, but I notice I am at over 11k pageviews, so.

How about my first kiriban be 12,345 views?

Send me a pic if you catch it :)

You can have a traditional sketch or an oekaki drawing (coloured and cartoon or chibi style) of a character or animal of yours.
It's my Husbands and Pandora's birthday today :) It's great they share a bday, destiny!

Pandora turns 2, she still acts like she's a crazy kitten xD

Anyway, if you want to leave a msg for either of them here i'll pass it on ;)

I thought i'd share with you some smiles and frowns for my day today, since it's been a bit up and down.

Frown, I woke up early, I barely slept, feel tired.

Smile, I got my new passport in the mail with my new married name on, yay! Now I can finally get all my documents here changed and 'm ready for the trip in June :)

Frown, I can't find my wallet. Luckilly only my UK Bank card (empty acct) and european insurance card was in it, it has to be here somewhere but can I find it? Hell. I turned things upside down for a half hr and couldn't find it. Blah.

Frown, Mike has to go do the dentist today. He has an infection in his gum and needs a tooth pulled on friday. On top of that, the dentist is some crazy OCD freak who gave me the most horrified look when I moved the chair I was sitting in. He motioned for me to move it back. Also he kept clicking his pen while waiting for things on the computer. He's nuts. Mike doesn't wanna go back there but he has to, after he gets that sorted we won't visit that dentist again lol.

Smile. More of a giggle. On the way back home I saw a sign on the petrol station that said Elf (petrol type?) and then Lubrication. I couldn't help bursting out laughing in the car.

174.123.135.195/uploads/amco_K…

Just imagine this but lubricants was lubrication and it was in bigger font. I cracked up so hard.

Smile, had soup for dinner. Mmmm soup.

Frown, had class. It was dull but I managed to get one over on the teacher. We had to write an 'action' on some paper and then we all swapped papers. The paper you got is the action you had to mime. I wrote 'hug 'knuffel de lerares' on my paper which means 'hug the teacher'. The married indian guy got it and said im sorry i cant do this one and had to trade it to a girl lol. I found that really amusing.

Smile, it's past 10pm and we're ordering pizza cos we both had a crazy craving for pizza. I'm getting chicken on it! WUHU.

And after that i'm going to bed, but i'll be up to talk to one of my bestest buddies about pokemons. WHAT CHYU KNOW BOUT DEM POKEYMANS, FOOL?

So yeah, thanks for reading. Feel free to share your smiles and frowns of the day in comments.
So I was fiddling with the camera today, the new one we bought, and I found it has a 'house pet' option under one of the photo style options, I think it's set to capture quickly but efficiently light them, since they never sit still.

I took some photos without it (before I realised it had this setting) and with it, and I've uploaded them to pandora's folder :3

Go check dem bad gals out.



On an unrelated note, we finally got my passport stuff sent off, I hope it gets back in time with my new name on so I can travel to america without any problems in june ;w;

I left it so late im such a tard.
Now I got that out of the way, few advertisements.

I have her entire bio to write up but her basic info is up right now, because its 4AM OH GOD WHYYYY

I have mother-in-laws bday party to go to tomorrow then Livestream in the evening.

For those of you who go on Chickensmoothie, hit up my art thread for a link to the countdown.

My livestream is Vampiriccs. DON'T FORGET!

Later Gators~
Anyone know anyone who makes fursuit ears and tails? (just those parts)

I was considering making Vampy's ears and tail myself for the con but i'm starting to think I have far too much to do, and wondered if anyone out there has the talent to do it or knows someone who can?

I want them identical to Vampy's (so the ears the right shape, lower down on the head, and the tail with the skull, everything!)

Let me know if you have any ideas! They need to be able to be sent here to Belgium (or possibly to another mod in America) and need to be a fair price (it isnt that much if you consider theyre both mostly black with a few details)

I would prefer the tail to be attached to some sort of band (or elastic) that attached to a belt, that would be just fine (I know most people use this method)

As for the ears, on a very thin headband because they end up so low on the head anyway and id want to use my hair to cover the band :) The pink of the bottom is what I consider the inner of the ear, so its basically like the stand up ears only sidewards and with cuts in :S If that makes sense.

Here are some refs of how I want them to look (though most of you know anyway xD)(and I do not expect a tail to change mood lol~ I want the standard down frown which is neutral skull-ness :) )

I also expect the result to be high quality because I want it to be identical, not a poor thrown together job. Just saying.
