Hello beautiful Deviants...

So, it upsets me that most of you aren't on Facebook and will be missing out on my new project. It isn't fair, so...

I have a NEW DEVIANTART ACCOUNT!

You can follow my new project here:

gemgoode.deviantart.com

So, go and watch me and enjoy a year of pretty quotes!

Hello!

I'm afraid I have decided to no long use DeviantART, but my new project started today on FACEBOOK!
Please go and like my page:

www.facebook.com/media/set/?se…

And I'll see you all over there! I hope you all have Facebook... If not, I may start a Tumblr.

So, again, GO HERE!!

Much love

Hello, my darling Deviants.

I'm so sorry about the lack of new project and I have absolutely no idea where this year has gone! However, I am going to start it THIS January. I've decided it won't be a fact project though, so don't get your hopes up. It may have some facts but I would like to go in a different direction... <ain;y to avoid being shouted at if one of them is wrong! I don't think I can go through that again, ha!

In other news, my computer is still broken and hasn't been fixed. Can just about use Photoshop and that's the main thing! No internet, however, is a bit of a pain!

So, thank you all so much (as usual!) for sticking by me and not un-following me or forgetting about me! You're all so wonderful and you'll be seeing more from me in about 3 weeks! How exciting!! :)

Oh, if you'd like to know what I'm up to in the time being, then you can see my blog:

Or follow me on Twitter:

See you in January!!

Love,

Hello darling Deviants!

Sorry I've been AWOL for a while. A little holiday from facts turned out to be a little longer than I'd planned!

So, I promised you another project starting in January, right?! Well, it's still going to happen, but my computer is (once again) broken... Btw, why do people send viruses into the world?! I'm so fed up of having to wipe my computer every two years!!(I should've bought a Mac *sigh*) So, anyway, once it's fixed I can get on with it! I'm really excited to get back into my typography, I haven't really done any at all since the You Learn Something ended... I didn't even edit the ones that are wrong! MUST get around to doing that...

As always, THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments, :fav: and love for the project, it never gets old! :aww:

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and 2011 has been amazing so far.

Watch this space!

Love

I love this fact sooo much, it's probably going to replace one of the facts that are wrong!

So, I miss you guys! I have decided to start the new project in JANUARY 2011. I know it seems ages away, but it's only really 6 months away.

Remember, you can buy ANY "You Learn Something New Every Day" fact for $14, you just have to request it! :aww:

I hope all you lovely Deviants are wonderful and well and enjoying the summer. (I WILL reply to you all very soon! Sorry it's taking so long.)

Love

There are only FIVE DAYS left of my "You Learn Something New Every Day" project, which means they'll be ON SALE in about six days!

Seeing as it'll cost me a fortune and take me forever to upload them all onto Etsy, I'm taking requests now so I'll upload the ones you want first!
So if there is a particular fact you want to buy, comment on this journal entry with the date of the fact and I'll be uploading it to my Etsy shop, which can be found here:  www.etsy.com/shop/gemgoode
(No, I won't be selling prints on DeviantART, they take too much of a cut)

Thank you, as always, for all your wonderful interest and support with my project! :aww:

Hello my wonderful Deviant Friends!

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!

Just a couple of things...
Firstly, as you all know, the project will be over in a couple of weeks (:( ) and I'm a bit stuck on what I should do for the LAST EVER fact! So please, share some ideas and we'll see what we come up with. Thought it would be nice to end it all with your ideas, too.

Secondly, I know you may be fed up of me trying to sell my other art to you, lol, BUT, I make these maazing personalised name plaques www.etsy.com/listing/46513466/… Have a look and you never know, you may fall inlove and want one! Perfect birthday present, too.

Look forward to hearing your comments!

Lots of Deviant Love to you all! :heart:

I knoooow you're all waiting for "You Learn Something New Every Day" project to go on sale, only a month to wait, but it may surprise you that I've always been an artist before a typographer...

Sooooo... I have a WONDERFUL Audrey Hepburn painting for sale on my Etsy and would very much like to find a home for her! Please have a look and maybe even find a bit of wall at home so she can be loved and looked after properly!

Thank you, as always, for the wonderful support and all the new watchers for watching me! You're all amazing!

Lots of lovely love,

Tistwas (Gem!)

Just a little journal entry to say a MASSIVE thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes and Llama badges! You guys are the best! :hug: :glomp: :heart:

Thank you, also, for all your support with the project and I love reading your comments! On that note, I will reply to you all soon. Super busy atm, but I will get round to it sometime next week! :aww:

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Heeyyy!

Thought I'd let you guys know that I've submitted some typography on Etsy for you to buy! Not the facts yet though, that'll be after May - Not long to wait now! More will be coming once I have some more money to list them, lol. :aww:

Have a look!

By the way, DeviantART is being a pain today and I'm having trouble uploading today's fact, but will be on here later on today when I can get on the other  computer!

I hope you're all having a fun Saturday!

I'm so sorry everyone, but the worst has happened! My computer screen is completely buggered and it's (FINGERS CROSSED EVERYONE) being fixed. So, I'm afraid to say, I'm going to be a bit behind with the facts until it's sorted or I find a temporary computer screen that I can borow off someone, or I'll have to buy a new one. Hopefully it won't be the last option, because I don't have any money!

However, I've been told I can borrow the one from my mum and dad's office when they're not using it, and they have it back after I've finished the fact of the day. This may be the best option for now. Unfortunately, I won't be able to nick it off them until later on today, so the fact will be much later than usual.

I really am so sorry, I feel like I've let all my fact followers down! :forgiveme:
I'll hopefully have a better solution to the problem by the end of the day!! It's such a shame I can't put Photoshop on more than one computer, that would've been SOOO much easier!

Anyway, I hope you all have a lovely day, I'll try to feel less rubbish about it all!!
Hopefully, the next time you hear from me will be a Fact upload!!!

During my "You Learn Something New Every Day" project, I've been using backgrounds, textures etc, and haven't credited every one yet, so I thought a journal entry would be easier and I can just include this link in my descriptions from now on! It'll be easier that way!

So backgrounds are:

Circussy, striped one: wheeloffish.deviantart.com/art…

darkrose42-stock does some amazing backgrounds and textures, so quite a view of my grundge ones are from her: darkrose42-stock.deviantart.co…

I think some of my sparkles are from her too, her stock really is amazing!

The red hearts on my Coca-cola fact is from here: inthename-stock.deviantart.com… rest of her textures are lovely too!

I used a paper texture from akinna-stock too: akinna-stock.deviantart.com/ga…

New Paper textures:

Sparkles...

Yellowy, gold: ermenelwen.deviantart.com/art/…

Other pink sparkles: artofdecay-stock.deviantart.co…

And last, but not least, DyingBeautyStock does loads of lovely sparkles: dyingbeautystock.deviantart.co…

Umm, think that's about it! Will update if I find any more backgrounds etc!

Oh, and all fonts are, of course, from Dafont: dafont.com
