I Just Sold...

Rainbow Ocean. by Thelma1

Rainbow Ocean.

Newest Deviations






Goodness me, I've just found a few minutes free in a couple of very busy days, so I've popped on here to apologize :phew:
Every time I try to catch up on here something happens to spoil it :(  This time real-life has kept me offline for the last two days, and I'm sooooo far behind I could cry :sniff: :tears:
I was very far behind anyway, after being away for 3 weeks, now I'm overwhelmed, but I WILL get there eventually :faint:
I have dozens of notes that I haven't answered yet, and tons of messages, questions, requests, and mentions  etc' etc', and I haven't even answered all of your comments on this journal yet either :forgiveme::forgiveme:
Please bear with me, I am so sorry to keep you all waiting, I'll try to get on here tomorrow, or asap :love::heart: :thanks:

Well, after the fiasco of trying to get my last journal done, I came on here the day after to begin catching up,
and got nothing but bugs, glitches, and server errors :pissedoff:
Tried again the next day and it was the same, so I just didn't want to be here to endure MORE frustration and
anger :frustrated:  I'm really beginning to hate this site, with it's constant ridiculous updates causing even more
bugs and things not working properly.
Most of the changes I can get used to, though I still hate the way they squashed our notifications etc' to the right
on the top bar, but NOW I come back today and see the new logo....(shakes head in disbelief )
WTF...what IS that stupid bit of bright green snot ?!?!?

I've just read the news about this new logo, and I can't believe Angelo actually used a 'Creative Company' to help
design it.  I think it's terrible, you can't even tell it means DeviantArt.  I also think it's a mighty slap in the face for
all the members here on DA.  There are millions of brilliant artists and designers here, WHY didn't he let an actual
DA member design it, I'm certain they could have done a much better job.
And having said that, WHAT was wrong with the old logo anyway, at least you could see it was DA :(:(

Anyway, sorry for ranting, but this all boils down to whether I want to stay here or not.  After staying off here for a
few weeks, I was seriously debating whether to bother coming back. I really missed my friends here, and missed
posting my work too, but I feel this site is definitely slipping away from 'art', and rapidly becoming a joke.
Loads of people seem to be leaving after these latest updates, I keep seeing lots of greyed out names where folks have packed up and left, and it makes me so sad :(
DA must KNOW they mess up the site after doing their useless updates, do they LIKE losing members ?? :shrug: :roll:

That's the end of my rant, thank you if you've read all of my grumpy moans :giggle:
I'll be staying here for a while, just not sure for how long.....
Sorry for all the notes and messages I haven't answered yet :forgiveme: :love:
I've done this journal as an edit,  because I can't face the frustration of trying to do a brand new journal, not after the
nightmare I had doing the last one  :shrug:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Old news...
Bloody hell, talk about FRUSTRATING :frustrated: :rage:
I've never had any problem doing a journal before in all the 10 years I've been here.
But THIS time it has taken me forever :pissedoff:
I just wanted to do a short message and add some new prints, but do you think I could add my images ?
HUH, the new ones were small and looked silly, I couldn't 'stretch' them, and ended up feeling angry.
At LAST I've managed it, though they aren't level, which is bugging me, but there you go :shrug:
I don't know if this problem was ME or DA, all I know is that now it's late, I've wasted hours, and I'm
bloody starving hungry and tired :hungry: :yawn:

Anyway, all I wanted to say is, there's been real-life things, and family stuff, that have kept me off my
computer for days at a time, and I am very far behind with all of my messages etc'.
So this is just an apology to you all, and I will start to catch up as soon as I can :forgiveme:
At this moment, I must go and eat something before I faint clean away haha :laughing:

Sorry for the rant, just had to get that off my chest. If this journal works and looks even half decent, then
I'll be happy, but I may not do another one for a long long long time, I really don't want to get that angry
and frustrated again any time in the near future :):)

I have sadly decided that I can no longer
thank everyone individually :(:(
I know you will all understand that it's mainly a lack of time,  please scroll down
a little to see "MY HEARTFELT THANKS" on this page :heart::thanks::heart:
This is a HUGE thank you to the wonderful people who have purchased my prints or products recently, I am extremely grateful that you like my work enough to buy some of it, and I'm very flattered too.
Just a note about the mugs... my fractals (or photo's) wrap around the WHOLE of the mug, and aren't just a little image on one side, so they are very good value for money  :):):)
Please take a moment to browse in my shop :please::please:

The 2 photo's below show a small selection
of my print products, Mugs, some Coasters,
and a Mouse Pad, all purchased from here
on DA. The quality is truly awesome :heart:

Although I've always tried my best to thank each new faver or watcher, I've found it harder and harder to find time to create anything :(:(
So, I will no longer be thanking each of you personally :forgiveme:
I am truly sorry, and I really do appreciate every single fave on my art, and also any new watchers who give me their encouragement and support, but it's almost impossible to keep up with messages etc', and find time to play too :phew:

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart, and I will try my best to get to your galleries whenever I get the chance :heart:
I hope you will all understand :bow::thanks::heart::love::thanks::bow:

There is no need to thank me for faves or watch's either :D
And I really don't mind if you fave and run :sprint: :D
