I don't normally do this, but it's for a really, really good cause. I promise. We're trying to find creative members for our community. Some friends and I are working on what is to be THE BEST PRESENT EVAR (and is just generally a pretty cool project, if you ask me) and we're trying to get as many people involved as possible. If you enjoy writing or drawing, please check out inkingthesky

We're making a book that's a collection of original short stories/poems/illustrations as a gift for our friend and her children. She has five kids, ages 9 down to not even a year old, three of them have Birthdays RIGHT around Christmas. Can you imagine? D=
Also! We have decided to make a CD to go along with it. So if you can think of any songs that are kid-friendly and fun, or have a dreamy feel to them, please make some suggestions!

Now, for the part that will interest you. Here's some picture inspiration to hopefully awaken your imagination, and inspire you to help with our project. ;D








Come on, don't be like this guy.

[Pretty image heavy. One NSFW. Some are thumbnails, click for full awesomeness.]

~*Creativity will flow. Don't let the magic go.*~Collapse )

Types of posts we're looking for:
- Stories/artwork you've already created and wouldn't mind contributing to the book
- Anything you want to create just for this project
- Idea posts for stories, characters, settings, anything
- Inspiration posts with images, songs, or links
- Discussions are acceptable, as long as it pertains to the theme (example: favorite story as a child, what series do you think is the most creative, books that should be made into movies)

My name is Caitriona - people have used Cat, Cait, or Caiti. I love rain - from gentle showers to wild thunderstorms. My fashion style is generally casual and quirky - I love clothes with flirt - like boot cut jeans over heeled sandals with a flirty, frilly top. I love to read and write - I enjoy fan fiction. History is a passion of mine, and my faith and family are more important to me than anything. I dislike pastels, but enjoy natural, earthy tones as well as deep jewel-tone colors. I'm sure I'm forgetting a bunch of things, but this was just for a quick intro.

(Yes, I know the picture isn't right for the script, but how can you deny such a gorgeous shot? I was unable to find the right scene and got tired of looking. To me, there is no other greater wish movie than The Labyrinth. And this is probably my favorite "speech in the entire moive.")

Here's my introduction! Sorry, but this will be kind of stream of consciousness...

My name is Brooke, I'm 16 and I found this group through laceandflora. I love anything girly or quirky, pretty things, unusual things, and anything pink! I am a huge movie fan; a few favorites are Dead Poets Society, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Edward Scissorhands, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, and Fight Club. I'd have to say Johnny Depp and Audrey Hepburn are my idols and my favorite actors. I plan to be a film director one day, because I am always thinking and coming up with ideas for movies. I analyze dreams, daydream often, and have many wishes. I'll travel just about anywhere. I've always wanted to go to Paris. I have a love of fashion, especially classic styles. Themed parties and dressing up makes me happy! I am inspired by random things or people everyday, and need inspiration to get by! Poetry is my favorite thing to read. Music means alot to me, Madonna being my favorite. I have a love of nautical things such as anchors. Alice in Wonderland is quite possibly my obsession. I have many varied interests--too many to name! I'd love to get to know all of you; and with some encouragement I'll post some pictures I have taken really soon! :)

Dreams are like raindrops. They melt away into the earth and back again to be used for someone's happiness or sorrow. But daydreams stay forever. You can see them and use them for your enjoyment any time and any where.

Girls are like
apples on trees. The best
ones are at the top of the tree.
The boys don't want to reach for
the good ones because they are afraid
of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they
just get the rotten apples from the ground
that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples
at the top think something is wrong with
them, when in reality, they're amazing.
They just have to wait for the right
boy to come along, the one
who's brave enough

to climb
all the way
to the top
of the tree.


*Note: I did not draw the art, or come up with the poem. By the way, does anyone know who even wrote that?
