Update and Special News!

Hi guys!!

It's been a very long time since I've been active on here. I noticed much has changed in terms of the user experience. Looks cleaner and there's lots of extra stuff.

Hope you guys have been doing great!

I don't know why I became so inactive here, I guess I get like that and go through phases but I will never forget how dA brought me so close to some of my dearest friends that I met here. It really has been an experience for me in building my confidence in art and striving when I felt my work wasn't that good. I took so many photos and uploaded them, and kept trying to make them better by going through so many deviations and wishing I could be as good as these artists who I really adored. I really have learnt so much from my experience here. 

Sometimes I'm not always well, sometimes I'm good Alhumdulillah, I'm working on trying to be so much more productive. I hope to upload some of my artwork which I haven't shared with you guys in long. I got the amazing opportunity to travel to India last year, I'll upload some of the photos from the trip. It was a wonderful experience really. It's so full of life, culture, and so so busy, yet the poverty and living conditions makes your heart hurt, it makes you appreciate what you have so much when you see how other people struggle to get by.

I've been experimenting a lot with typography, applying mehndi tattoos, and making video tutorials of them on youtube :D My website is updated with my latest pieces if you want to check them out www.junoondesigns.com

I recently set up a society6 account 
society6.com/JunoonDesigns and have been quite active on my Facebook fan page: JunoonDesigns and I'm also thinking to sell some of my artwork that I have on dA on here, so if there was anything you wanted to purchase from my gallery, feel free to let me know. 

So what have you guys been upto??

On to the special news:

 :heart: I'M ENGAGED!! :blushes:  :heart:


I finally found someone who makes me quite happy :) :aww:  :heart: 
You hear it so many times when you are just hoping to meet that special someone, people always saying "when you least expect it you'll find the one" and as much as you wanted to look at the person and say shut up, because it hasn't happened yet, it really will. I met him when I least expected I would, he's pretty amazing, kind, caring and so helpful to the people in his life. I'm truly grateful to have found him. I gave up thinking I would ever find anyone, so meeting him was amazing. 

Feel free to barf any time now :P

Hey guys! I hope you are all doing well, it's been quite a while. Hope Ramadhan is going great, of course it is I'm sure.
I'm hardly on dA these days. Been practising loads of typography lately :) If there's any of you still interested in following my work you can follow me along on www.dribbble.com/famz

Ok so I was tagged by :iconpetrova: thought I'd do the tag since she was kind enough to remember me :)


Here are the rules:
1. You must post the rules.
2. Each person must post 5 things about themselves in their journal
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create eleven new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 11 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.
5. Go to their page and tell them you have tagged them.
6. No tag backs.
7. No stuff in the tagging section about "You're tagged if you're reading this." You legitimately have to tag 11 people. (which I'm not going to do :lol:)



5 Things about Me


1. I almost ate a living a slug once when I was really really young
2. I want to learn to speak Arabic and do Arabic calligraphy before I die
3. Want to perform Hajj!!
4. I have changed a whole lot in two years!
5. I have six cats which I adore!!


Answers to 11 Questions I was Asked:



1. What would be the title of your memoirs and why?
It would have something to do with Inspiring, Muslim and Female. I want to live my life as a muslim female who can empower and inspire change, be an example to others and help as much as I can.

2. How would you describe your creative process?
My creative process can be like an amusement park. There's highs and lows and the moments when your adrenaline is just soaring or when you have too many things you want to do. Then there's the slow period like waiting in a line to get on that next big thriller. But sometimes it's very calm and when I'm most relaxed it is when my ideas flow.

3. If you could transport yourself to any era, where would you go and what would you do?
I would definitely go back to the time of the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) just so I can meet him, learn from him, and be graced with his amazingness! I would take every opportunity to follow in his footsteps and be the best muslimah as I can be and help spread my deen. But it only reminds me now that the Prophet has left a leading legacy that is still very close to him being present and I should also now try my best to follow in his footsteps even though he is not physically present.

4. Where would you like to be in ten years?
I would like to be happy, be married and have a family :)

5. What did you want to be when you were a child?
I always wanted to do art and be creative, didn't specifically know what kind of art at the time.

6. In one sentence, who are you?
I am a muslim, trying to understand this question myself still even though I have asked myself the same before.

7. What do you do every day to get closer to your dreams/goals?
When I wake up everyday (Alhumdulillah) I thank God to be alive, and I pray throughout the day, I also work on myself, reflect on how to make myself better and work on my art.

8. What is your favourite quote and why?
There are so many ones that I really like and find to be inspirational, but this is one I like a lot, and remember often
'Fa inna ma'al usri yusra. Inna ma'al usri yusra.' - Verily with every difficulty there is relief. Verily with every difficulty there is relief. (Al-Inshirah 94:5-6)


9. If you lived in the Harry Potter world what would your job be?
I guess I'm not the average type of person because I don't have any interest in Harry Potter

10. What makes you childishly happy?
Chocolate chip-cookies, chocolate ice-cream and seeing and playing with my kitties (also applies to playing with any wild kitty I find that decides to play along with me - I sound like a crazy cat lady!) Also finishing something I've been working on and being thrilled if it's something I really like as well as accomplishing something I didn't think I could.

11. Which famous person in history have inspired you the most and why?
The Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) because he was the most extraordinary man, the best in character, he had no money yet he was wealthy, he didn't have much yet he had everything, didn't commit sins yet he begged for forgiveness. He touched the lives of many people, always smiled, was kind, didn't raise his voice at anyone, was most patient, he lead a nation and has left an Ummah. I pray I can be like him :)



11 Questions from me to you


1. If you could describe yourself in five words, what would it be?
2. What do you think are your best qualities?
3. How do you define happiness?
4. If you could do anything within your power what would you choose to do and why?
5. Stealing petrova's question. Is there any famous person that have inspired you and why?
6. What are you dreams and aspirations?
7. What is your outlook on life, where would you like to be, and how are you working to achieve it?
8. What are some of your favourite childhood memories?
9. If you could own your very own island what would you name it and what would you do with that island?
10. How important is religion to you?
11. If snow came in a flavour what flavour would it be?

This saddens me what the site has come to...the un-ending drama...

I hope all of you have been well, I miss you my friends but it's definitely not the same here any more
I can't blame it only on the drama...just I don't feel the same about dA anymore...

not like most of you may have noticed either :S


I still love the art and always find inspiration here, that's what I love!!
What have you been working on recently?

So I've hardly been active on dA...like if you know me you'd know how crazy addicted I was over deviantART...now I'm here for a bit...and there is soooo much drama...what on earth is going on??!! I don't like what I'm reading. :|  I don't understand. It's saddening, it's crazy. I'm kind of glad I've been away. I never got myself into drama, I've been here for 4 years now and kept to myself, gosh I'm such a loner loll.



I miss you my dA friends! I hope you guys are doing well! Wonder if anyone out there misses me?? :(
I'm sorry I haven't been around much and have hardly been posting art especially my conceptual art...but I have new ideas and have a cam to accomplish it :D

I joined Shadowness and I got my inspiration back, I've been feeling uninspired for a long time now and i'm super happy to be back into creativity mode again. So if you're looking  for me...I spend my time there (I'm still here...lurking)

Love you all :kiss:

Update: The hurricane/storm finally left around when I woke up this morning, but it surely did damage to people's homes, roofs flew off, trees fell, people were without water and electricity up until this evening.

Heard it did lots of damage to St.Lucia and I'm sure St.Vincent and the other Caribbean islands, and it's on it's way to Haiti :(
Guys please pray that it doesn't reach there and it dies before going anywhere. Haiti has been through a lot.

Thank you for your prayers, I really appreciate it :hug:

Famz



- - - -

We are currently being hit by Hurricane Tomas here in Barbados, it's so beastly, the wind is violent :S

Please pray for the people here and the people of the Caribbean, I can't imagine what outside must look like or what their homes look like :fear:

There is no doubt other islands will be badly affected if it gets worse :(

Hurricane warnings have been issued for Barbados, Martinique, St Lucia, and St Vincent and the Grenadines, while tropical storm warning were in effect for Dominica, Grenada, and Trinidad and Tobago.
