Self-Harm Awareness 2013 Crafty Edition
Today, March 1st is Self-Harm Awareness Day, but I think it deserves more than a day. I won't say much about it because other people have already published wonderful articles about it, I recommend that you read Nichrysalis's Fears vs Dreams and BeccaJS' Recovery, both contain a lot of wonderful information and share touching experiences.
What I can tell you is this: self-harm is a problem that is often not recognized. It takes many forms, forms that are not recognized even by the person committing it. Self-harm is always a problem, even if you think you have it under control or that it's not serious, it is. If you are currently committing any form of self-harm, or if you suspect anyone else is, reach out for help. Both articles contain links and resources to guide you, and I'm here to talk :iconheartorangeplz:.

My Fears and Dreams
Self-harm Awareness Day 2013
First, if you haven't yet, please take the time to read this journal by Nichrysalis:
To roughly sum up what the journal is about: Today, March first, is Self-harm Awareness Day. The word "self-harm" covers a broad spectrum of different types of suffering that many people, probably more than you think, endure.
Today is a day to let everyone know that self-harm is a serious condition. It needs to be tended to and adressed to eventually step out and into a healthy lifestyle. What you do as an individual is important; Being observant and noticing if others need help could potentially save someone's life from a vicious cycle of self-harm. Self-harm does not always lead to being suicidal but that doesn't make self-harm less important. Self-harm can stem from abuse, low self-esteem, a harsh lifestyle, an addiction, or even trauma. There are many different w

Self-Injury Awareness 2013 Fears vs Dreams
The Facts
March 1st is a day that calls attention to a sensitive subject that takes on many meanings and forms for people. Self-injury, or self-harm, is the act of deliberately harming oneself physically, usually as a mechanism for expressing distress or coping in difficult situations. Self-injury is commonly associated with cutting, but can also refer to burning, scratching, bruising, bleaching, overdosing, some forms of hair pulling and picking, and breaking bones. Binging and purging may also be considered self-injuring behavior.
The reasons behind self-injury and the people who self-injure vary greatly, but one thing to keep in mind is that it does not matter what culture, ethnicity, gender, or age you are: there are people who have injured themselves from all walks of life. Triggering events like bullying, trauma, abuse, school, work pressures, bereavement and difficult relationships can all contribute to the distress one feels that leads them to self-injure, but

WeEmote chat round up (23-2-13)
Chat Event
Each month BlissfullySarcastic and I host a fun emote themed chat event in the Official CR Emoticon Chatroom #WeEmote. This news article is a summary of the challenges which took place in our 6th Chat event on 23rd Feb 2013.
During the event we had three challenges. The first was an emoticon themed trivia session focussed on hunting out emotes from the emoticon legend and a few emoticon community facts. This was followed by a non-digital emote contest before the event was then rounded off with a pixel emote challenge.
Emoticon Trivia
During this quiz, we had 21 questions lined up. These questions covered a wide range of topics and focussed on hunting out creators, number and dates rather than relying on previous emote knowledge.
1. What colour is the emote in the :popcorn: emoticon from the Emoticon Legend?

The Enduring Enigma of Collage
February 21, 2013/by techgnotic
Watch depthRADIUS

By techgnotic
Collage is one of those art forms that immediately sets off heated debate about our most fundamental ideas and visceral feelings about the very essence of art itself.
Turn of the century troublemakers Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso began enhancing their paintings with glued on bits of cut out fabric and other materials, thus neatly blurring the line between the art categories of painting and sculpture. They shifted the emphasis or “meaning” of their painted images beyond an attempted interpretation of the painted “text” to thinking about the artists’ “process” – something wholly separate from the paintings themselves.
And with that a whole new Rubic’s Cube of basic quest

Another cone of wonder by Phlum Commission: Chaz by greenafire

Hello! Bubbles by conniekidd My name is Connie, and I live in England. :iconisaydanceplz:
I mostly work with traditional mediums - some of my favourites being pencils, soft pastels, watercolours and acrylics - and predominantly draw people and portraits. However, I like to try new things, so you may also find some digital, photography and emoticon pieces in my gallery. Recently I've found a new love for crochet and amigurumi, which was a fun new challenge; and I love making cute little creations.

I've been a member on deviantART since May 2009. Whilst I'm online nearly every day (I am now at university so don't have time to log in every day ;n;) (Now working, and I am yet to find that work-life balance :<), I can neglect my message centre for months... I reply to comments eventually. :shifty:

EMTC Blue Close Contenders by happy-gurl :thumb245715429:
I was an Awesome Emoticonist for August 2011 with Indae!

"Though relatively new to emoting, =conniekidd is a kind and supportive artist. You can find her commenting on emotes and offering her words of encouragement. She is actively working on her own emoticon skills while getting more involved with projects and events. Her bright attitude and spirit is much welcome in the community."

I also share a joint account with Indae, where we have uploaded our collabs: :icondeath-wishes:
