Jake: The stones as you say are special to my culture. They have many meanings to us, often used as protection stones. They are also used as a courting device, a way to say you want to be together or to propose I guess you would say. Stones have a wide variety of meanings as well, protection, love, healing, creativity, ect. I could go on but I’d be here for awhile.

Once children hit 10 years of age, we would receive our own special stone. Think of it as a type of coming of age, after working hard to prove yourself you are finally seen as an adult. If you are wondering I got my hematite 21 years ago to this day. 

Jake: Alex, its been awhile, hopefully your problem is sorted out now. If you ever need help in the future let me know. And I’d love to hang out just let me know when. Hopefully you don’t mind me being banged up. Seems like every time we try to hang out I always look worst for wear.

I better get back to sparring with Avis.

Reminder

Just thought I’d remind people, if they want to keep up with what I’m doing here on tumblr I have a few mod blogs.

So when I go quiet on here for a good bit, can keep up with me over there. Even ask/talk to me on my personal, be nice to get to know some of you.

Personal Blog 

Art blog

Thanks for you patience guys, something good should be coming soon.

Mod: Aaaaa thank you both! I don’t think I could ever express how much this means to me. And to know that my dorky blog is someones favorite means so much!! This makes me really want to get back into posting stuff for you guys.

Thank you all for sticking by me, I know I don’t update a lot anymore but hopefully that will change as soon as stuff calms down. We are getting close to another milestone, so fun stuff will happen soon!

Just a bit of practice featuring Jake from a little bit ago. Still proud of how this came out.

SURPRISE

askminorminers:

[Hannah]: So, today’s Nauro's birthday. We made a special plan to celebrate with her.

[Doug]: That’s right. We had Maria go ahead to her house and ask her out for a walk so we could sneak in the house after they left and get to work…

[Lucas]: Hannah helped me make a cake while the guys decorated.

[Noah]: They came back just as I finished spelling stuff on the cake.

[Hannah]: Doug wanted to add a smiley face and a star, and I seconded him so we made Noah put it on there.

[Maria]: The others zoomed to hide while I stalled Nauro in the front room. I-I’m not good at improvising, but I bought just enough time before she walked into the dining room for the others to be ready to jump out and surprise her.

Nauro: The kids threw a surprise party for me, I didn’t know they knew when my birthday was.

Nauro: After everyone settled down for the evening Maria gave me her gifts. They were amazing drawings of us and one with all the kids and I. Can’t wait to frame these and get them on my wall. It was a birthday I won’t forget.

Little thing I drew awhile ago of Jake from my mineblog lostinminecraftia. Wonder what he’s down about.

One Year

Mod: We made it to our first year here on LoM, its pretty crazy to think that its already been a year. Never thought I’d end up getting past a few months let alone a year. And ended up making some amazing friends in this time too that I never expected. 

Its been a fun ride thus far with you all and I hope we’ll be celebrating another anniversary next year. I owe a lot to you guys, without your ask and interactions this blog would have just faded into the background. You guys are the reason we keep on going here so thank you from everyone here!

The timing of this was accidental on my part. But I didn’t have time to draw much for this today, I’ll touch on some stuff sometime soon though!

On to the next year!

Since yesterday was taur day I doodled up something quick of N and askminorminers's Maria, as a lamb and lion taur.
I might color this when I get back sometime today. I wouldn’t mind drawing Jake as a taur as well, got any suggestions for the gaint dork?

Jake: Yes Avis, she’s very pretty. News seems to travel fast around here, and I’ll keep that in mind if I ever need advice.
