My [Not-So] Perfect Life: A Fill-In-The-Blanks Journal :: Review

My [Not-So] Perfect Life: A Fill-In-The-Blanks Journal is one of our favorite journals of all time. Why? Because it’s REAL! It acknowledges the fact that NO ONE has a perfect life – we all have problems, we all face challenges and we all make mistakes. This journal is your opportunity to record the details of YOUR not-so-perfect life!

A Fill-In-The-Blanks Journal

Every girl wishes she had a perfect life, with perfect clothes, perfect friends, perfect parents and perfect hair. Especially perfect hair. But, in real life, the typical tween’s life is better than perfect – it is interesting. So interesting that it deserves to be recorded in all its glorious imperfection!

My [Not-So] Perfect Life is a fill-in-the-blanks journal that celebrates your real life as a tween, bumps and all. It’s filled with friendly, funny writing prompts designed to overcome blank-page anxiety. Love, destiny, parents, friends, going to school, being cool – no subject is off limits. A sparkly pencil in a handy holster, funky and funny artwork and text with an ever-so-slightly smart-aleck attitude make writing on these pages just about irresistible. And, to embody the concept, the holographic title on the cover transforms to read "My Perfect Life" or "My [Not-So] Perfect Life," depending on the angle of your approach!

In a world of pressure to act and look and be perfect in every way, this friendly prompted journal gives you a way to celebrate your not-so-perfect self.

    Hi! I'm making this so I can get commissions to draw something from someone. I love doing commissions, and I love drawing :3 If you'd like to request something, here's what I'll need to know. Note: I tend to do humans (mostly OCs for people) and fail at inanimate objects/plants/animals, but I can try XD Style: Realistic (Hardest for me) *A selection of a head shape. Like, oblong, square, oval, etc., and if you don't know all them or what they look like, look up some charts of head shapes, and pick your favorite. Or just, whatever your character has XD *A body type. Chubby, skinny, average, toned, etc. *Height, generally. I'm not good at putting a height effect in, but I can try :P *Eye shape. Good to look up a chart for this, too, and choose the one you like. Also say whether or not they're wide-spaced, close-set, or the classic one-eye-apart. Note, though, that Africans/African-Americans tend to have wide-spaced eyes. *Ethnicity. European, African/African-American, Asian, etc... it's good to know, since some ethnicities have different proportions than others. And yeah, Google doesn't think "ethnicities" is a word. I'm not sure either XD *Age. It'll make a difference in heads tall. *Gender. It'll make a difference in features. *Hair color, hair length, and a good description or image example of what it's styled like. *A good description or an image example of what the person wears. *A good description or an image example of what the pose the person is doing is. *If you prefer, it can be done in black-and-white. You don't have to include colors if you want black-and-white. That's all I can think of for that style, so if you think of anything else, please add it in! X3 You can also just use embedded images for all of the areas, if you so wish. If you desire to see my skill level before you request a drawing, I'll be posting an example of each style I do this weekend. Now... for anime/manga. *Essentially the same as realistic, but with the eyes, it's best to provide examples for the shape of the eyes. Anime/manga elements should be included, too :P That's all. If you have some other style I should try, or have some tips on how I can improve, please tell me! ^-^ I already know I need to work on clothing wrinkles for sure, so any help on that is greatly appreciated. (Eventually, over the weekend, I'll make forms for each individual style... And an example of my work in each form.) Oh! Media forms! Here's what I offer, and the time expected... Pencil and paper (Just shading): One day (1-2 commissions), 2-3 days (3-6 commissions), 3-5 days (7-10 commissions), 5+ days (11+ commissions). NOTE: ESTIMATES. Pencil and paper (In color): Same amount of time as the above. Digitally drawn (Longest): Five days (1-2 commissions), it really just depends though. Expect digital ones to take at least a week.

    Kristin, usually, but sometimes they refer to me as "brilliant".   [s:p/1kuk] Ginger is also very common, and some of my internet friends call me Dan/ny. Other internet nicknames blossom from my usernames, such as how I'm often called "Poptart" here on KW.
