As you may know, :iconpinkoctopus13: (my mom) and I are starting our own crafts shop, Pink Octopus Designs, this fall. We're going to debut the shop at Con-Jikan, a small anime convention at UNM run by the UNM Anime Club, which is on Halloween weekend (party time!). We're going to make plushies (simple animals as well as some Pokemon), jewelry (I'm bringing back my paper star bracelets!), and my sister is contributing duct tape wallets and roses. We've been stocking up on supplies all month, and we've already got the table for the convention booked. Mom's still trying to decide on a costume, and I'm debating whether to go as a creeper, Derpy Hooves, or Vriska Serket (I'd just need a shirt for Derpy or pants for the creeper, but I don't have any parts of the Vriska costume aside from pants and shoes, so it's still up in the air).

My primary project for this shop is the website: instead of doing the shop through Etsy, we've decided to have a standalone website to sell from. I've been looking into hosting options, and iPage looks pretty promising, but I'm still not quite sure whether to use their site builder or put a site together myself through an open-source CMS like WordPress or Joomla. I'm currently taking a web design class, though, and the lecture and reading material have given me lots of fantastic insight on what directions to go in with the design of the site. I'm working with Mom on what the site will have on it and how it will look, and she definitely wants to go for a sort of "Octopus's Garden" theme for the site design. (She always did like that song. :meow: ) Even though there's still a lot I'm not sure of and the convention is only a month and a half away, I'm really excited about the project, and about the prospect of starting our own business!

In lieu of the convention, the website project, and my schooling, I'm putting the My Little Pony card game project on indefinite hold. Also, I know my 20K kiriban is fast approaching, and I hate to say it, but I honestly don't think I'll be able to come up with any art for it like I did for my 10K so long ago. Nevertheless, I think my current preoccupations should make up for that fact when they finally come to fruition, so keep an eye on my page for updates! :dummy:

Hi there! :meow: My name's Jessica, but people online call me Shrimp. I love Pokemon, and I used to run the Pokemon club at my university (I had to step down because I moved). Right now we're working on instituting Gym Leaders :dummy:

When I'm not busy with school stuff, I'm usually loafing around on some game or other, or making craft stuff.

Here are the other places you can find me around the net:
Subeta: [link] but I don't go there often
Tumblr: [link] and I'm on every day
Facebook: [link]
YouTube: [link]
MapleStory - Windia: ThreefoldLaw (153 Bishop), ShrimpBisque (151 Corsair), GreyInGrey (115 Demon Slayer), MyDichotomy (181 Zero)

I also play Minecraft, but I currently only do single-player. If you have a nice calm, easy-difficulty, griefing-free server that I can join and build myself a hole in the ground or something, feel free to invite me! :P I hope to institute my own server soon-ish (maybe by the end of the year, provided I finish the prep)!

what is the wish list for and how do I put pics in there.
ShrimpBisque Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2014  Student General Artist
The wishlist is for marking art that you want to buy from people. Some people give you the option to purchase prints of some of their stuff. When you look at a deviation (piece of art), it'll show if you have the option to buy it, and if it does, you can add it to your wishlist.

For more information, there's an FAQ here:
Just search "wishlist" and you'll find everything you need. :)

where is the moving pics on the web site?
ShrimpBisque Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2014  Student General Artist
You'd have to look through all of the individual Pokemon pages. It takes a long time to download them all. When you search for a Pokemon, click the link under its picture that leads to more images, then just look for the moving PNG.

how do you know if it is a PNG?
ShrimpBisque Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2014  Student General Artist
It'll say .PNG at the end instead of .gif or .jpg. Most PNGs don't move, but you're looking for the ones that do.
