p.s. Please remember I do not get to everything right away especially notes. Even if I am online that does not mean I am not busy doing other things so please bear with me. Thank you.

p.s.s I like to do various different things and I am not particularly very good at any one thing. So please bear with me if my work is not perfect. I practice many things and all these things are hobbies and not my profession.

Hobbies: Photography, modeling, drawing, and writing, belly dancing, various artisan crafts, digital art, and more.

I am very busy and being on DA is just me having fun. So please if you do not like my work do not send nasty comments. I prefer structural criticism or nothing at all. Thank you!
