Short Story From Long Ago

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 1, 2012, 2:39 AM
Looking for a little help, here. My Mom is asking about a short story she read when she was a kid and I'm not having much luck finding it on my own. If anybody recognizes it or is able to somehow find it that would be really awesome.

She believes it was published in either Creepy or Erie Magazine. She doesn't remember the name or author, but here is the gist of the story:

There were these two beings on a distant world. There was also a big white bird.  One was a man, one a statue. The man always said that he would leave one day on that big white bird.  One night, while the man slept, the bird flew away. He ran to where the bird was, and the statue told him that in the night, the bird, Hope, flew away. The ending is, there is a world very far away, and on it there are two beings. Neither has moved for many centuries. One stands because he is made of stone - the other kneels because he is not.


Can anybody help?

ACEN 2012 This Weekend!

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 23, 2012, 2:24 PM
Hey guys, sorry I've been kind of MIA lately. The past two months or so I've been preparing for ACEN and it's been taking up most of my time. We're going to be in the Dealer's Room this time, so I'm going all out!

ACEN is located in Rosemont, IL and you can find out more about it at their website here - www.acen.org

And here is a map of our location, Booth #1427:



We're going to be bringing the entire line of Sugar Bunny Shop products, as well as books and other items for Strays. We'll also have a selection of hand-carved wizard wands made by algy's father. They're really awesome, so be sure to stop by and see those too.

Once the con is done I'll get back to answering notes and comments and resume my monthly features. I have to catch up on those ^^;

See you later!

Notes! So Many Notes!

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 10, 2011, 1:44 PM
Why do I suck so bad at responding to notes? I'm sorry, guys ;___; Sometimes I'm just like, "I'll answer these later," and "later" turns into four months. I just went through and answered everything I found that did not have a little reply icon, but if you've sent me a note in the past few months that I have not answered, please feel free to send it again.

As a side note, I will generally not answer notes asking which programs I use because I list them in the descriptions of every image I upload. Check there first!

I am also closed for commissions and do not take requests. I don't know when or if I will reopen for commissions, but I will be sure to let you all know in advance so you can be ready.

I also cannot make you a custom product. I'm sorry, but I usually have to order my stuff in bulk so it does not lend well to creating a single custom item. If you're interested in a single custom product, try Cafepress.com or Zazzle.com. They have pretty good rates for made-to-order stuff.

And finally, since I get asked this a lot, you can get your own charms printed at Printsess.com. I know there are one or two other places out there that can make them as well, but Printsess has the best quality by far.

Celesse @ Tumblr - I finally went and got a Tumblr. I like to post random photos (both my own and ones I've found online), as well as quotes that I love. So go ahead and follow me if you want to. I'll probably post art and products from my shop there sometimes too.

Celesse @ Facebook - I also have a Facebook page for my artwork (I think I mentioned this before?) I post sketches as well as finished pieces, so like me there if you want!

Oh man, I'm so far behind on notes and stuff. I'm so sorry to those of you waiting on a response :( I've been really busy with my job and my store, especially with Christmas coming up. I'm also heading off for a visit home for a month or two this week, so I'll probably fall even further behind. I'll do my best to catch up on everything once the holidays are over. Thanks for being so patient, guys!!
