Hallo!

Post by Elaitea » Mon Oct 02, 2017 8:39 am

... It's been ages since I last joined a forum, so I hope I'm doing things right XD

Anyway, hi everyone! My name is Sarina, but I've always used Elaitea or Ela as an internet nickname. I live in the land of chocolate, beer and fries, aka Belgium. Aside from being the full-time servant of my two cats, I've also somehow ended up working at a court registry. Before that I studied philosophy and theology-religious studies at university. Hobby-wise I enjoy knitting, reading, drawing, cross-stitching, lace-making, baking and messing around in my aquariums. My favourite authors are J.R.R. Tolkien and Terry Pratchett (I absolutely adore Discworld). Besides that, I also love Star Trek and am currently way too excited for the new series! :D

I've been dolling since October 2005. MS Paint has been my weapon of choice since the very beginning. I prefer making fantasy-themed dolls, quite often accompanied by a small background. Because I like torturing myself. I guess. You can find examples of my work at my website and my dA :)

Thank you both so much!

Lex: yeah, I just couldn't resist the lure of an active dolling forum anymore XD

Blu: I'm still one of those old-school dollers who insists on having a site. I put a lot of work into it, so I'm not going to let it go any time soon XD

I had a website up until just recently, but my webhost (webs, ugh) deleted it out of nowhere. :( Plus, my imagehost (majhost) went down, AND my old computer died, so I've lost...most of everything. >< Glad to see there are still 'sites around, though. xD

Nunu: thank you! And yes, I'm pretty sure we're time zone mates :D I haven't come across many Americans in Sweden. I hope you're liking it there ^^

Blackfyre: thanks so much :D

LadyNova: it's always fun to see oldies returning to the dolling world. I feel like I recognise your dolling style, but unfortunately I can't remember from where...

Blu: ugh, that's awful :( Webhosts can be so annoying at times. I've had to leave my old one because it was being a huge pain by making it impossible to pay for my domain (yeah... I'm not getting a credit card to pay for a cheap domain name, thankyouverymuch). But having an entire site deleted? That must be hard :/

Were you ever a member of The Gathering? That's where I used to hang out.
There's something familiar about your dolls too.

I was! It was the first dolling forum I joined and I was active there for quite a while. Used the same name as here. Gosh, I still miss that place sometimes... :)

I miss it too. I used my real name, Eveli, there (and, if I remember correctly, Shadowlady before that).
