Oh, the joy of green beer!Have a great St. Patty's weekend everyone!
St. Patrick's Day, although not a legal holiday anywhere in the United States, is nonetheless widely recognized and celebrated throughout the country. It is primarily observed as a celebration of Irish and Irish American culture; celebrations include prominent displays of the color green, feasting, copious consumption of alcohol, religious observances, and numerous parades. The holiday has been celebrated on the North American continent since the late eighteenth century. -Wikipedia.com

National Cheese Doodle Day!!!As most of you don't know, today is National Cheese Doodle Day!!!
"Cheese Doodles have long been America's favorite bright orange snack. First introduced to the world as Cheese Pixies in the 1950s, the total volume of Cheese Doodles produced each year could fill 36 swimming pools. Oddly enough, the Cheese Doodle swimming pool 100 meter relay isn't catching on as well as the snack itself." - TheUltimateHolidaySite.com
To commemorate this day, I present you with a cheesy snack feature! ENJOY!

Artists: Born or Created?Are artists born or are they created?
These are questions that has been debated throughout human history. Are certain individuals somehow given a trait at birth that allows them to excel at creativity? What about others that desire to become an artist? Can these individuals be taught the skills necessary to become an artist. Or, is it a melding of both inborn talent and knowledge gained from the study of artistic techniques?
The poll: What do you think?
"Are artist created or born?"
Becoming an artist takes education and practice.
Artists are born with a natural creative ability.
I don't know?

We decided to take a poll here on deviantART through the #seniormentors group to see what the community thinks on this
SMP Newsletter: March 2013Welcome to the March Newsletter for the Seniors Mentoring Project!
We have lots of great and exciting things to report from the Seniors Mentoring Project! First, is that WhenPigsFry (that's me ) has volunteered to devote way too much time to the project. I will be trying to organize and keep things running around here. Some of you may have seen my first journal entry talking about needing to change a bunch of stuff. I think I came off wrong in it, so I wanted to talk about that really quick.
My intent wasn't to completely overhaul seniormentors but rather discuss what is and isn't working and find ways to improve it! Thanks to the help of LostKitten, WDWParksGal, Astrikos, and many other Senior Members, I have been able to take a look at some areas that need to stay the same and some that needed changed. Some of it has taken place and some is yet to come!
Also, don't think
The Art of DeceptionA quick personal note:
Not that anyone noticed, but I recently took a short 1 month break from deviantART due to the passing of my Grandmother whom I was very close to. During my time away, I have lurked some and tried to keep up-to-date on some of the happenings around the site, but I do still have a stack of messages to go through, but I've had bigger piles before. Anyways, I'm hopefully back and will be trying to get involved a little more over the rest of this month.
Things around deviantART
So, what will I be getting my hands dirty with around the site in coming future? Well, there has been a lot going on over at seniormentors lately. LostKitten has been working her tail off trying to get the group pumped-up and going strong once again. With that, have come many changes to the group and things are still changing. Head over there and watch the group to find out more about the exciting things coming down the pipe! And, if you're a
Artisan CraftsSince it's Artisan Crafts Month on seniormentors, we wanted to introduce you to each of the sub-galleries within Artisan Crafts and show some examples of great art in each of these categories.
The Artisan Craft Gallery is a very expansive category here on devinatART. Ranging from Culinary Arts to Basket Weaving to Woodworking to Jewelry Making and much, much more! Because of this, it may be easy to get lost in the Artisan Crafts Gallery. To help simplify, an Artisan Craft is a physical piece of art made by an artist or a crafter. Many times, the items are unique and one of a kind, other times the items are replicated either exactly like the original or with variations. And, with the fluidity of the subject, you will often times find Artisan Crafters pushing the boundaries and creating extremely innovative artwork.

10 ways to become more productiveDear, deviantart fellow artists
It's difficult to feel motivated and stay focused on our goals all the time. But how to achieve what we want, how to not let procrastination stand in our way?
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Set goals
Think about your ultimate goal - what is that matters to you the most, what would make you incredibly happy and excited. Write that down and work your way through to it. It will be the reason, the reminder for you to look forward in those times, when you'll feel less motivated.
Try to write also weekly, monthly and yearly goals - be reasonable and realistic regarding that, but don't be afraid of challenges. They have to be S.M.A.R.T. - Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.
2. Plan tasks in previous day
