It's been 5 years since my last deviation (man that sounds like I'm in AA or something, it's been 5 years since my last drink...)
Many things have happened in that time. My lack of internet interaction could probably be directly related to the fact that my University degree is crazy. About 6 years ago, I started a degree called "Architecture". In one year's time I'll have finished my Masters.
One year into my degree I stopped socializing with everyone and only spoke to Architects. Horrible, I know. I now communicate in architecture-jargon laced with compliment sandwiches.
Those skills I learnt when I was in high school on how to create drawings on Photoshop and Illustrator became infinitely useful skills in later life - more so than Maths (the shock. High school lied to me).

I fell in love. Got engaged.

I've been a supervisor, a manager, a collector and a teacher in this time.

I love making soft toys now. There's something magic about making a plushie for a newborn with their name embroidered in it, and the appreciation the parents have when they know you've put time and effort into the present.

I still love, as I was younger, all those anime and mangas. Sailor Moon, Dragonball. That type of thing. Some things never die. I still take great joy in waving around my Crescent Moon wand (in secret, of course).

Oh, and please check out my sewing blog when you have time: www.patchesofcolour.com

I'm an Architecture student as well, my advice is to look at others work. Ive learned everything about good design and composition from studying how others tackled the challenge. Really analyze what it is about someones work that you enjoy, don't just say you like it, what is it exactly that you like or dislike and how could you put your own personal twist to it to make it better. 

hope this helps.
