Ending and BeginningHurrah for finishing the Joys of My Garden Leaflet Project and having just a little time to play around with Fruit When the items get here for the Spooky Welcome stuff I'll get that done and then get back to Celtic Goddess, some biscornus and then Cosmos. Feeling pretty confident right now....hope I can keep that feeling until December 31st which is the end of the 2013 Leaflet Project.Ending and Beginning by Mattsma

dAr - Monthly Challengeedit: ONE WEEK LEFT!dAr - Monthly Challenge by ginkgografix
Better hurry if you want to enter!
Welcome to the monthly challenges!
Each month you will be given a theme and two categories from the deviantART related gallery. You then have one month to create something for it. In which way you interpret the theme is up to you, but it has to be for one of the categories chosen.
For each category there will be one winner and one runner up.
As September already started, there will be only one category/winner/runner up for this month.
From October on, we do it like explained above.
Theme + Category
When working on your entries, try to be creative and don't just do the first thing you have in mind. Some categories will be more challenging than others - that's for sure - but maybe it's a good way to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Maybe you will like it!
Your theme for September is:

To Praise Life 7Welcome to To Praise Life! This article series will be a newsletter/feature for those who have participated in my project, as well as a place to find some inspiration.To Praise Life 7 by Astrikos

I am hoping to reach at least 300 inspiring messages from the community if I can.
At the end of this year, 2013, 10 calenders and 16 three month PMs will be given away to inspired deviants.(that means random/anyone. )
The calenders to remind you of how special every day is, and PMs because sadly the notebooks are no longer available.
Things I like or think are really cool I set it to random so that every artwork stands a chance of being seen rather than just the ones I added most recently. Every one of them deserves to be seen more than once on my profile
What to tell about myself... I'm cheerful and creative - when I'm in the right mood I create more than I can keep up with so it's always a challenge to finish what I start as I have so many idea's. I don't let stuff like not knowing how to do something stop me from actually doing it - I may not do it "right" in the end but I do get it done!
I'm a mother of 2 boys who are (fortunately) not yet teenagers but are a pair of monkeys who keep me on my toes
About saying thanks to favs etc.
I had to make a choice between spending a load of time thanking people for favouriting my art - which always brings a smile to my face and a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart - or making more art.
I chose to stop thanking people personally for the favourites but I do still give everyone who favourites me for the first time a llama badge as a little thank you for doing so I hope that nobody feels less appreciated for it but well.. someone stole my time machine If you need more inspiration as to why I chose this watch this: player.vimeo.com/video/4237276… It's good advice for anyone who creates art
Do I sell my work?
Sometimes - Not everything I make is for sale but I don't usually mark anything as "for sale" so If you are interested in something I've made feel free to note me. I only accept reasonable offers as making things by hand takes time and materials cost real money, so expect to pay more for a one off item than you would for that mass produced knick-knack you saw in a shop.
