WINNERS of March monthly contest-CREATIVE LIGHTING
Hey guys,
Unfortunately I have some bad news. Despite having talked everything out with the company who wanted to sponsor the competition, they have not replied to numerous emails since. If they do come through and send me the discount codes I'll make sure they get to the winners but I have a feeling they won't.
I'm sorry to disappoint, I was really looking forward to having something more to offer you but it's unfortunately out of my hands, I hope you understand.
Anyway, here are our lovely winners:
And our runners up:
Congratulations and sorry it didn't go to plan.

I also just wanted to add a shout out to ducky-overlord for their really good entry, but due to the nudity I couldn't select it, as some members here wouldn't be able to view it because of the maturity tag. But well done and keep it up everyone!
Keep an eye out for March's competition, coming soon!

Playing with makeup the other day and decided to do some self portraits.

I've always struggled with self confidence, but over the past couple of years I've started taking on the attitude of "who cares". Life is too short to worry about what others think about you. At the end of the day, you only have yourself. So it's probably a good idea to love the one person who will be there for you at the end of the day, yourself.

Peace Be With You
Playing around with makeup and this is the result. I realize the viewer's left eyebrow looks a little wonky. I was trying to go another route and it ended up not working with me. I didn't realize that I never fixed my eyebrow until I was editing things lol

The Prince
The third installment of my Beautiful Anxiety series. This particular crown is my most recent creation. I wanted to make something that could be a little more unisex, while still keeping the flower crown aspect.

This crown came about after a particularly hard day, April 14th. I had been in a sort of funk throughout the day, then I had an anxiety attack in the middle of CVS. Why? Don't know, just happened. The fact that it happened in public compounded the issue. I would rather vomit in public, at least then I could have the excuse of some sort of stomach flu. You can't always explain why you're hyperventilating and tearing up in the middle of CVS. So I came home and zoned out for a bit and this flower crown came about.

Adam ended up being the perfect model for this. I love when a guy has no issue wearing makeup and it helps he's a fan of my work lol.

Model: Adam
MUA/Photography/Styling: Holly Shoemaker (me)

Hey everyone. I haven't really posted a journal in quite some time so I figured I would do so now. In the event you are wondering if I'm still doing pixel art the answer to that would be not really. In my previous journal post I mentioned that my fiancee and I were in a pretty nasty car accident back in June. Since then I have found that I cannot sit for long periods of time which kind of puts a damper on doing pixel art as I am not the type of person who can work on something for 10 minutes then take a break.  I may at some point resume pixel art, but for now it is not in the cards.

Photography has proven to be very therapeutic and editing is something that I can take a break from... mainly because my eyes threaten to pop out of my head if I stare at the screen for too long. I am also going to massage therapy, whether it is actually doing any good I'm not sure, but I seem to feel better for the few days following having it done. Car accidents are an interesting thing. I now get these pin point headaches. I think the medical term is Nummular headaches, it is a coin shaped headache that feels like a bruise. Mine occur on the back of my head where the base of my skull and neck meet. I also tend to get hurt easier... then again that could just be because I'm getting older and have had arthritis for some time now lol. Just yesterday I took Eric's plate so that I could wash it in the sink, turned and barely bumped into the oven. Suddenly I feel this shot of pain in my right hip and since then I have been getting a pins and needles tingling in my lower back, I probably jut pinched a nerve. So ibuprofen and trying to take it easy until Sunday when I have my next massage therapy.

Well now that I have gotten that out of the way on to other things! Eric proposed on Sept 28, we are in the beginning stages of planning our wedding and are both super excited. My sister in law just gave birth to my very first little nephew just over three weeks ago and I was able to travel from Phoenix to Mississippi to take newborn photos which will more than likely be up before the end of the week. Other than that it is just general life stuff. Oh! Is anyone else a fan of Puddles Pity Party??? I'm so super stoked, I will get to see him Jan 5! *flails* Eric and I are actually going to ask what it would take/cost to have him preform at the wedding reception.

Anyways I'm going to scoot off of here for now. Hope everyone is doing well. Stay stellar!
