Thank you for participating in the raffle! <33




Hello, my little sunshines~ <3

Time for a last minute raffle for the month of May!

I will be opening up commissions soon since I need to save up for uni and I need some samples so instead of just drawing my OCs, I thought I'd draw yours as well ^ 7 ^)/

There will be 2 winners; however, unlike the previous raffles I have held, I will be choosing the type of drawing the winners will be receiving this time (Sorry! I will do my best though > w <;; )

Winners may request a maximum of 2 characters (can be original or from a show/manga, etc.).

Please keep in mind I mainly draw anime/manga art & humanoids when choosing out the characters, but we can discuss this.

Like the previous raffle, there will be multiple ways to enter the raffle;

- How to Enter -

~ all of my watchers are automatically entered into this raffle; you can choose to watch me if you aren't currently (you can remove me from your watch list after the raffle)
~ leave a comment below telling me a funny or sweet moment you experience during one of your summers
~ favourite this journal
~ spread the word about this raffle (journal, comment on friend's profile, etc. just send me a link(s) in a comment below); up to 5 bonus entries


Doing any one of the above will earn you an entry -- in other words, do all of the above and you can earn up to 8 entries in the raffle~

On Friday, May 31st, I will have someone or use a random generator to pick 2 numbers. The people on my watcher/bonus entries list corresponding with the numbers are the winners!

I will note the winners and announce them on here~ If for whatever reason the winner does not reply in 48 hours, I will choose another person.

Examples of what you could win:
Maple-Chan~ Anime Club Mascot by LinYan


Hope you all have a wonderful day filled with sunshine & warm weather <3

This happened two years ago at summer camp.
So everyone is on a team. We go by colors, blue,green,purple,white,black, yellow ect.
I had been put on the black team(we are randomly chosen) We were playing the game Ninja, and the winner would get points for his team. I looked around and saw I was the only team member who wanted to play, so not thinking I yelled out"Hey I need some black people!" every black person turns and gives me the eye,"I mean, black team people, I repeat black TEAM people!" it was hilarious.

A funny summer story, eh? ...So this one time at band camp /SHOT

jk. Umm... Don't know if it counts as summer or spring, but not too long ago (maybe a month ago or so) I had this huge party with my bf and a bunch of other friends! We hung out on the beach, swam in the ocean, ate hot dogs and hamburgers at the park.. it was just a really fun time because I was surrounded my a lot of great friends xD

hmm... I read a few other comments out of curiosity and I was reminded I should go snorkeling again and say hi to all the pretty fishies and sharks and barracuda. I live in FL and I love to snorkel and I havn't done it in a really, really long time~ xD

I'm a watcher now and your one of my favs!
So one incredibly hot, summer day when I was visiting my dad at the Bahamas, I was snorkeling and I saw this huuuuuge starfish, and the most scariest thing of all-a baracooda fish. (it's a meat-eating fish with huge fangs and is very long in case if you don't have a clue what it is, so ya)
I also saw a sunfish, it was soooo beautiful!

Here's my journal > [link]


Just last weekend when we were at a resort, my mom's friend decided to buy a drumstick ice cream from a roving vendor. I was a little farther away from her earshot when she asked if I wanted one. I got so excited, I quickly ran to her and slammed the door behind me.

In the end, I never got anything because she thought I was yelling "No!" and waving to her with my left hand... when in fact my left hand was flailing because my right hand got stuck between the door and the wall and I was cursing in pain!

Gosh! It was really painful and stupid. We still couldn't stop laughing when we remember it XD

okay it was this year when my friends were waiting for me because we catch the train together everyday after school and one of my friend's were doing a drama play and they had to make a mask and the one my friend bought was kind of creepy. Anyways when i came out one of my friends put the mask on and a bus passed them and they told me that there were kids around ages 5-6 and they saw her and got scared and hid...also another woman walking past with a baby in her pram saw it and they waved at her and the baby started to cry really loudly ;P

One year I went to my partner's family reunion in July, halfway across the country. It was a long, hot ride, the air conditioning broke, and I had little drive to play Pokemon on the drive out because my copy of Diamond had been stolen, and I had lost all my Pokemon, including the ones with the Pokerus. I'd gotten a replacement, but I just wasn't into it. I was not really happy to be on that trip at all.

When my partner's little cousinsnoticed me playing Pokemon, they started talking to me. We'd never met before, and they didn't know me from Adam; I was just their cousin's girlfriend. When I told them what happened they pooled their Pokemon and gave me all of the unobtainable legendaries. All of them. Each and every one. These Pokemon can only be obtained by going to events, downloading them on special days, or cheating, and if you miss one, they''re impossible to get without, well, cheating.

I miss those kids more than I miss my ex.

Perhaps you'll run into them again someday -- it's a pretty small world & there's always unexpected connections that lead you back to others haha

One summer, I nearly floated off to sea on a giant piece of Styrofoam but the currents dragged me back to land & I got to see lots of fishies & corals on my way back! >w<

It was a giant piece from an industrial refrigerator that someone had dumped on the beach (the one moment where dumping garbage was perfectly acceptable XD). I was worried about having to swim back or ending up on the other side of the bay since it was near a shipping lane so overall, slightly traumatizing but fun. XD

Your welcome~
