About Me

SelfportraitSo, you want to know something about me, the amazing artist behind this site? Alright.
  • I was born the 25th of February, 1986. I was actually calculated to be born 8 days earlier, but I was late - as I still tend to be. Therefore I'm not going to state here how old I am, because it will be sort of embarrassing when I eventually update this page and find out I've been 20 for 5 years.
  • I am a girl.
  • I wear glasses, because I'm horribly nearsighted.
  • I am Swedish through and through - not counting my great great great great great great grandfather, who was English. Born in Sweden to Swedish parents and having lived here all my life, I'm still dark enough that people used to ask me if I was adopted. I'm not, even if my dark hair and eyes may fool some.
  • My favourite authors are Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, JRR Tolkien, JK Rowling and Diana Wynne Jones. Yes, I read mostly fantasy.
  • I enjoy writing, though I don't yet claim to be a proper writer, as I haven't really finished anything. Still, I participated in NaNoWriMo both '05 and '06. Though I didn't finish either year, I wrote ten times as many words '06 as '05, so if the pattern holds until this year, I'll smash those 50k this year!
  • I hang a lot at a writing forum, hoping inspiration will strike through osmosis, or something.
  • My username almost everywhere is either Gayahithwen or just Gaya.

Mm, jag hade ingen aning om att du var svensk förens en kompis sa det. x33 Jag avstår dessvärre ofta från att t.ex skriva i andra dollers gästböcker och så, eftersom jag känner mig så osäker på engelska. ._. Måste tillägga att jag älskar kjolen på dollen i layouten. <3

Dina bidrag till MDE är jättefina! :D Jag är sjukt imponerad över att du lyckades komma på två så vackra och olika outfits till round 2. :3 Själv hade jag knappt inspiration nog till en. x3

Message: Hey! Thanks for the comment on my tagboard. I put the dollmaker project on hold for the moment because of school and stuff. There are some major bugs in Internet Explorer and I want to have a better system for people to post their pieces. Until those things are fixed, I don't want to advertise the dollmaker too much, since I know I'll be getting complaints and it would cause problems, so the link is quietly sitting in my news archive. When I have time to fix it (sometime in May), I'll put a more prominent banner on my home page. You're still welcome to add stuff to it if you want though.
