:house: my little life

So as of today I am finished with job number two :woohoo:! I can finally go back to working around 40ish hours a week (there will be days I have to work over, like always). This will help immensely because I just found out last week that my only grandpa has been diagnosed with some form of lung cancer. I am very close to my grandparents as I have lived with them for many years when I was younger. We are all hoping for the absolute best, we think the doctors may have caught it early enough! We have also been getting super cold weather and a lot of snow here in Ohio lately. I'm ready for it to be over D:

:house: my little life

KETO! I've recently made a lifestyle change. I'm one of those people who reddit too frequently. I stumbled upon /r/keto one day and I've been hooked since. I'm eleven days in and eight pounds lost so far. I'm hoping to lose a total of 30 pounds so I can fit into my old clothes! (yay). Unfortunately the last year has been a bit of a roller-coaster and I've gained a lot of weight :( But as I said, this is a lifestyle change for me, not a simple diet or fad that will fade. Something to help me stay healthy and give me more energy! Have any of you made any lifestyle changes recently? I'd love to hear about them!

I've decided to add a small section to my journal highlighting other journal's featuring textures or resources :la: If you find any other useful journals or articles please note me, as I would like to keep this as a regular routine!

:house: my little life

Heyyoooo! How was everyone's week!? I had such a busy and productive week. Worked 12-13 hour shifts every night except tonight and I go back in to work tomorrow for a few hours :dead: And now one of my bosses says that the PRN job will be until the end of Feb instead of the end of Jan! While the money is good, I feel like I'm wasting away, haha.

:lightbulb: contest ideas

I was thinking of possibly doing a contest! Maybe... a Valentine's Day themed contest? I'd like to open the contest to anyone who would like to join :D Probably no restrictions or guidelines really... just create what you feel best represents Valentine's Day possibly. I'll come up with further details next week. The prizes will most likely be premium memberships, points, and free HQ textures/packages. Please let me know if you would be interested in participating in this so I can arrange for prizes!

:star: kiriban 555,000

Congratulations goes to Kazeoseki for winning my kiriban and receiving a 3 month premium membership and choice of any two HQ textures or packages! 
I will be setting up a new kiriban next Friday :la:

EDIT: 12/28/13 8:00pm - I don't know how I forgot to mention this, but I wanted to give a nice shout out to dalouzer for gifting me a 12 month premium membership! Thank you! :love:



Somewhere between Christmas and today my little albino cory catfish died :( I'm so sad, he's been such a good little housekeeper to my tank! Today is my routine water change and check, so maybe my levels are off. I know my temps have been just fine. I guess I'll find out soon...

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I was able to spend time with my family on Christmas day :) My brother even came home for Christmas! I usually don't get to see him often because he lives hours away so it was really nice. 

So lately this week I've been a machine! I've been feeling really inspired with creating textures. If there are any you guys would prefer, let me know :) I'm also going to start working on submitting the HQ packs for purchase soon. I'm working on organizing my gallery so it is easier to locate textures as well.

I am also going to start featuring at least five textures a week from other artists - we have to stick together! Let's get this party started and supply this community with quality resources ;)

EDIT @ 7:30pm EST on 12/22/13: I will be working on making my HQ texture packs available for point purchases in the near future. They will be 300 points per pack (equivalent to $3.00 USD). This is also cheaper than purchasing them directly from my site, because I love my deviants :heart: I have started submitting single textures again as well, with the HQ available for a 30 point purchase (equivalent to $0.30 USD). :) I also removed my previous Journal theme due to some issues with not viewing the thumbnails correctly.



Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you guys are able to spend time with your loved ones! This season is a bit awkward for me, everyone is so spread out and this will be the first Christmas in a long time that I won't have a significant other to spend it with! Which just means my friends get more presents this year hehe. 

Look forward to some new textures hopefully tonight or this weekend! I'm busy making chocolates tonight but I'm hoping I'll find time to upload a pack or two this weekend.

Please enjoy this week's features! (especially the red haired one ;))

Man oh man. I have to say, I am exhausted. Working my full-time job and helping my old boss by working part-time at her new facility is quite tiresome. They are incredibly behind on their paperwork because of of their co-workers is on sick leave. I guess she isn't returning until the end of January, and even then, they aren't sure if she will extend it (again). But all I can think about is the extra money! It'll be an extra $200-300/week!

With that being said, I have been SUPER busy. I've been giving it some thought, and I think I'll start releasing single textures again. When I have at least 10 or so uploaded, I'll probably bundle them so if people want to use them commercially they will be able to (buy purchasing like my other packages). Or maybe allow them to buy the HQ version with points or something. I don't know yet... ><

So is anyone playing Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn? I'm on the Balmung server! If you're on my server come find me :) My name is Chi Haya! I've also been playing Smite a lot, my name is BeefSista (inside joke..) so add me on there and we'll flip some pancakes ;)

Hey guys!! First, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for being so super awesome :love:

I'm going to be really busy over the next few weeks; I picked up a temporary second job to help out my old boss (whoa)! So I'll be pushing a minimum of 60-70 hrs of work a week. I'm really wanting to submit at least one new texture pack a week so hopefully this won't disrupt that too much. I'm also thinking about making PS brushes again, I haven't submitted a brush set in... let's see... TWO YEARS!?

BY THE WAY... here's a holiday discount code for 50% off all textures purchased at my site www.halfpastnine.net. When you are checking out use the code: HDAY2013 to get 50% off you're entire purchase! 

Anddd I want to do something new with featuring... Anyone who mentions (credits) me in their art's description will get featured in a journal entry :) You can also comment or note me your deviations for a chance at a random feature! I'm still trying to determine if this will be a weekly or monthly thing (I'm leaning more towards weekly).
EDIT// (Nov. 30 @ 2am EST) Wow so much has changed here on dA! I'm trying to get use to all the new gadgets! I'm also cleaning up my packages - so if some go missing, that's why. :) Most if not all will still be available on halfpastnine.net! //EDIT

HI EVERYONE. I know. I know what you're thinking. She shows up, and then poof, she disappears. I'm like an enigma these days. You'll have to catch me.. :)

So, this year as been INSANE, amirite? Holy cow. How about I give a very brief 'TLDR' version. I got a new big girl job, became single, moved into a fancy new house, played some fab new video games, read some awesome new books, and dealt with school and family drama. I think that about covers most of the fun stuff.

So like... I promised features before I poofed. I went through all of my messages (oh my god I love you guys) and here are a bunch of random features because you guys are so damn awesome.

I have some exciting new textures to add soon too so keep an eye out. I've also been troubleshooting my site (because the checkout cart is being a turd) so hopefully everything on that end will be resolved by the end of the night.

Hey guys!! With finally settling into school and my new position at work (I got promoted, yay!) I think it's about damn time that I start doing monthly features again! So here's the deal, if you use my textures (or brushes!) in any artwork, let me know! Comment, note, whatever and make sure you give me a link to the your work here on dA. I'll pick 25-50 pieces of artwork at random and feature you in March's 2013 Feature journal entry.

On a side note... I'm thinking about doing a contest as well. Maybe give away some HQ packs as prizes, or take texture commissions. What kind of textures would you like to see more of?

Hey guys! Happy Holidays :)

I realize I don't get on here nearly as much as I say I will. To make up for this (even if it's only a little) I am having a Texture Holiday Sale for my textures. Use this code: 40HOLIDAYS to receive a 40% discount off of your entire purchase at my texture site halfpastnine.net. Remember, ALL texture packages on my site are a flat rate of $3 USD. This code is valid through December 31, 2012 :)

I am also working on cleaning up the site a little and cleaning up links. I will be providing direct links to purchases of HQ packages of my textures provided here. I have been getting some feedback that people are having some difficult finding the particular packages they want. Hopefully this will resolve that issue :)
