My newest deviations.

Random Favourites

A few favorites of other people's works!


Pitifully small!



I know it's been quite sometime.  I have been very busy.  First off, I have moved to my new apartment.  I love it and am doing very well.  God knew what he was doing when he got me this place!  I got a river right outside my window and it's rushing so it sounds very nice (and is loud)!  It is a nice location.  My internet is way better, here as well. 

As you may or may not know, I have uploaded my first deviation in a very long time!  It is of my new kitty, Hannah, whom I just adopted today!  She's a two and a half year old Calico and is amazing!  She loves my large window and is sleeping on a blanket on the sill right now (which is insanely large). 

Everything is falling into place.  It is obvious God is doing all this; the signs are all there!  Just when a problem comes up, something will happen that fixes it. 

Well, I got to go now.

SusanMellen's Profile Picture

First off, I'm a Born-Again Christian. Jesus is the Center of my life. Without Him, I'd be dead. He's in control and I like it that way because He knows the past, present, future, everything and knows exactly where to go and what to do.

I grew up in Connecticut and moved to New Hampshire at age 20. I love it here! I love animals and have had a lot including horses, cats, dog, rats, and ferrets. Currently, I live with my kitty, Hannah. I love sciences and other "intellectual, geek" stuff but at the same time love things like clothes, jewelry, etc. I've attended and hope to go back to Plymouth State University and major in Meteorology and/or Physical Geography. I would really like to go to Dartmouth College to major in Linguistics/Archaeology/Anthropology but Dartmouth is really expensive and hard to get in to. Maybe do those majors somewhere else? I love coffee and coffee products (cappuccinos, mochas, espressos, etc). I love language and have officially studied (as in a class) Spanish, French, and Japanese. Based on those (and the fact my native language is English, a Germanic language), I've been able to decipher some things in other languages that are related like Italian, Portuguese, Norwegian, German, and, because the writing systems are so similar, despite Japanese being pretty much a language isolate, Chinese (Kanji is derived from Hanzi and consequently Hiragana and Katakana is derived from Kanji). I have also picked up borrowed words in Korean as Chinese has had a huge influence on that language as well. I am currently trying to study Hebrew on my own and love it. I want to also study more!

I'm an amateur artist who has done a lot of photography consisting of landscape, nature, animals, and a few other things. I've also done photomanips and digital art as well as draw and bead. I also love to write (fiction mostly but some non-fiction and poetry as well). I don't produce anything remotely pornographic, or inappropriate in any other way. I have a kid safe gallery.

Lately I've been really busy and such but want to get back into jewelry making. I learned how to make friendship bracelets (wow, so easy, wish I learned a long time ago) and have a bead loom, now and don't want to work exclusively with beads; polymer clay and wire-wrapping come to mind there. I want to learn to make clothing and other textiles (pillows, curtains, etc.) and to make things like candle holders and other pretty decorative things. I also want to get back into drawing and writing. So, of course, Pinterest is my friend!

Contemporary Christian, pop, lite rock, kpop, jpop, dance including but not limited to: Casting Crowns, Avalon, ZOEGirl, BarlowGirl, Krystal Meyers, Steven Curtis Chapman, Relient K, Kutless, Tobymac, Switchfoot, Jeremy Camp, David Crowder Band, MercyMe, Newsboys, Audio Adrenaline, Meredith Andrews, Addie, Selena Gomez, Jordan Pruitt, Carrie Underwood, Cascada, Demi Lovato, Cheetah Girls, Jonas Brothers, Daughtry, Lifehouse, KARA, Girl's Generation, 2NE1, f(x),4Minute, After School, Hello! Project, E-Girls/Dream/Flower/Happiness, AKB/SKE/NMB/HKT/SDN/JKT/SNH48/Nogizaka46, By2, High School Musical, Camp Rock, etc

Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis, BBC's Robin Hood, Doctor Who, Star Trek Voyager and TNG (and some DS9), Diagnosis Murder, Sanctuary, Castle, Scorpion, NCIS/NCIS: LA/NCIS: NO, Criminal Minds, Grimm, Duck Dynasty, House Of Anubis and there's more.
