I'd love to have a Core Membership for this account. <3

So, I'm back. It's not the first time I've left and returned, but I hope this return will be the end of that cycle. I plan to only check this account once a week (unless I have a lot of stuff to upload), so if you really need to contact me, message me on my facebook page.

Where I've Been
The easiest way to explain my absence is that I've been busy with life. I'm married with two children, one of which is a Girl Scout. My husband and I are helpers for the troop, which is way more work than we realized. But it's fun! The other is a toddler so... enough said. My husband and I will be married 10 years this October, and will have been together overall for 18 years- so that's exciting!

I manage a property my friends rent, in addition to taking care of my own home. Our home, as well as the rental, have needed more work than we first assumed.

I've struggled with anxiety, depression, and chronic illness. I've had a hell of a time finding good doctors. I've spent time trying to find myself, and I think I'm getting there.

During all of this I have continued to create, though the medium I worked with has changed frequently (and continues to do so). I rarely draw anymore. I do more hobby crafts than anything else, which you can check out in my hobby account, House-Velovasse if interested. I also make jewelery, work with polymer clay, and do various nature-based crafts. I'm getting back into 3D rendering and Photomanipulations just this year, so hopefully I'll have some new stuff to share sooner than later.

Other Accounts

I had quite a few accounts for awhile, but I've wittled them back down. I thought I would enjoy the organization, but it was bothersome- at best. I currently have several themed Pinterest accounts, if you're interested in links to those, let me know.
  • :iconhouse-velovasse: Maps, downloadable tiles, Baldur's Gate Portraits, and so on.
  • :iconkiwirose-stock: Stock photos and the occasional Photoshop resource. (On hiatus, but I do plan to come back).
  • Dacey's Arts & Crafts: My facebook page where I post pretty much everything.

How many usernames do you have?
You might see me referred to as Dacey or DaceyRose elsewhere. This nickname is closer to my real name is all. But I will keep KiwiRose for this account, since it's my oldest account, and where most people come to find me. Other names that I have shared my creations under include Matriach Dacey, House Velo'vasse, Dacey Rose Designs, and Wasteland Witchery. I also had two other deviant art accounts, DaceyRose-Pixel and DaceyRose-Art, which are now.
  • Listening to: Dar Williams
  • Watching: Star Trek: Deep Space 9
  • Playing: Skyrim Special Edition

I found a map you made on Google Images and it had your DA account on it. I just dropped by to ask if it was okay to use it as a map for an RP site I'm on? I'll leave you're marks and such on it. I might also possibly use it for a D&D campaign if you're okay with that?

Also, if you need any resources in the future, this journal post has link to what account they're under (for example daceyrose-rpg is where my rpg stuff is now)

By RP site, do you mean like a roleplaying forum? If so, that's totally fine, as is you using it in a D&D Campaign. All I ask is that the map isn't uploaded to another gallery or map database kind-of-thing. Enjoy!
