guess who's back from vacation??? I missed you all soo badly! I'm happy to be back and announce you something special today! *.*
I want to thank all of you for making it possible to grow more and more as a group and being a strong and active community! I can't believe it! We have already reached 10.000 members and we're still growing! Thank you! Thank you so much! I really appreciate it! I don't know what to say, you all made me uber-happy.
Before I founded the group, I was a member and contributor of some groups. I saw that some deviants were sad because some of the groups they submitted their artwork to declined their work because of low quality. When I read their comments, it made me sad, too. I thought: Why do they do that? Their art is not even that bad! They deserve a chance! But what could I do? I had the idea of founding a group. Believe me, making up a name wasn't that easy. I love Japan but I'm not a wee-a-boo (or how do you call them). I wanted to mix two words from different languages and combine them to something special. And then Kawaii-World came to my mind! After the group was activated, I was a little helpless. I thought that I couldn't do it and it's not possible to be as good and big as other groups. But everything starts with a small step! I found by chance and she helped me out of the "group-admin-jungle". Thank you so much, my dear friend! After we did some settings and opened new folders for the gallery, the first members started to join. I was sad about some deviants declining my request to join but it's okay 'cause without an icon, the group's a nobody, right? But who helped me out of being a nobody? Yes, it's the adorable ! You can't imagine how happy I was, when she made the icon for the group. Thank you so much, Minty-Kitty, you saved me! Then, the group got an image and more and more members started to join the group. After I met my dear friend , my life was complete! I can't imagine life without her. She helped me out with everything. Maybe without her help, I wouldn't be where where I am right now. Thank you sooo much, Lia! The main idea of this group is to submit cute childish things like products, handmade stuff, photography, digital/traditional artworks and so on. BUT without blood, nudity, etc. because I want this group to stay "childish and innocent". You know how it is, if you see the world in children's eyes. I want it to be like that. Sometimes, when my little sister (she turns 5 this month) is sitting next to me, I show her some pictures in the gallery. And guess what she says? She says: Awww.. I want this, I want that, could you make/buy me one, too? And you know what? I love that! I love to show people the works my members did and I feel proud of it!
What I want to say is, that my goal is to see you all happy! Whether you're a professional or just started drawing. Furthermore, this is not a "kawaii-desu-ne" group and this is also not a "submit-everything-you-want" group. This is a group where you can share happiness and cuteness.
I want to say THANK YOU! God bless you! God bless Kawaii-World!
