2015 Year in Review

2015 Year in Review

I am naughty and didn't do one of these last year, so I'm doing one this time!


I didn't post much stock this year.  This is mostly due to laziness :) (And a little bit of being busy)

I finished posting Oregon stock from the previous summer (see, laziness)

Went to the zoo for my birthday in May (large gap between posting)
Zoo 14 Penguin by PirateLotus-Stock

Went to Colorado later in May and actually posted the stock within a reasonable amount of time

Stock Uses

I had a lot of stock uses this year, here are some of my most favorite

Come, play with us... by Yami19Muddy Trouble - (Disappointment) by GoredGuarThe Fish Pig-livery Service (FPS) by KingaBritschgi
Naiad by Twinkle-spaceCookie monster by thegirlcansmile
Cherry Angel of The Dark by im-sorry-thx-all-byeDay 15 by LiminalWorksAT: Fran by MermaidTides


I don't remember what I did, that was too long ago.  Let's see...

In January I found my dream house. It's only 4 million euro, so just a couple more months at my current job and I can move to Italy…
If you buy it, let me know and I will work for you for free if you let me stay there

I made a delicious-looking pie

and some delicious-tasting cake

I turned 100 again :stare: We went to the zoo and Tommy made me a reuben for dinner

We went to a wedding in Colorado

*cough* I had had a few by then
On the way back we went through a storm that had passed over us the night before, and got to listen to it again that night.

We went to two other weddings near home

We picked 40lbs of sweet cherries

and many many apricots, and I got to work on Christmas presents in the summer

Bought Skyrim and lost my life for a while

Just chillin with my homies

Finally lost a sock doing laundry...found it a month later. (Yes my life is exciting)

Retired from being a CV for Stock & Resources, which was honestly a huge relief.

Aaaaand went to England to see Elandria get married!

It was a mini devmeet.  Here's kingmancheng sitting next to me :D (on the left with his lady, they're looking at bubbles)

We turned it into a vacation and frolicked around England and I learned what gas marks are.

What's ahead?

This year I hope to do a bit more stock, including another collaboration with Nathan Lorenzana, who made these:
Stillness 01 - Bic Ballpoint Pen Artwork by LopezLorenzanaThrough the Veil - Ballpoint Pen Artwork by LopezLorenzana
Revelation - Pencil Illustration by LopezLorenzanaStillness 02 - Ballpoint Pen Artwork by LopezLorenzana

Also planning on moving in with my boyfriend in August. My current goal is to start raising meat rabbits, and saving some money by living in a one bedroom apartment with someone else will help with getting a down payment on a house where I can do whatever I want (including having animals).

Hello! I recently have come back to dA and noticed I had lots of "Congrats on the daily deviation", on my photoshop actions. I realized that Hellobaby had suggested my Whimsical Actions and was given the DD by you, in 2013! I wish I was more active to have seen it then and thanked you! So this is my belated and heartfelt thank you, it means the world to me! :huggle:
