Posted by liwis57740 on December 26, 2015 at 3:05 PM Comments comments (0)

     December 1st, 2015 was Artstars 3rd birthday! Its so amazing to think back on how mach has happened in the past year with all the new members who have joined, all the wonderful art entries so many have posted, and the many changed Artstars has gone through! So as we enter into this new year, I'd like to make 3 goals for Artstars! First the goal for members is ten new members by Dec. 1st next year. Then for art contests, 4 successful art contests! Finally I have the goal to stay updated and modivated to keep up with the demand. It is hard to balance everything and I apoligize for the times when I cannot update. I Hope everyone feels inspired to make a good change this new year, grow, discover your gifts, and use them to create a fuller, more loving world! Happy New Years from Artstars! :D  ~Liwis

Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas! I hope that you are enjoying the holiday season and that your Christmas is joy-filled! When you think of Christmas what do you think of? I have come to realise that its not about the gifts you get, its about the gifts you give. Sure a gift can be a toy or game but it can also be a donation or your time. This year Artstars challenges you to give a different kind of gift. Below are just a few ways you can give a different kind of gift this year! :)

Toys for Tots,

The Salvation Army Bell Ringing https://www.registertoring.com/WebPages/Default.aspx" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">+ ,

Ronald McDonald House Charities,

Make-A-Wish Foundation,

Humane Society International,

Malala Fund https://www.malala.org/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">+

I'd like to say a bit more about the Malala Fund. Did you know you can use art to help? #WithMalala is a site where you can submit your art to help raise awareness for the problem in girls education. If you are interested please visit https://withmalala.org/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">+ !

I hope this inspires you reach out, not necesarly to give money donations, but to try to find a way to use your gift/ skills to make a difference in the world, whether that be drawing, painting, dancing, writing, speaking. . .

Always: Liwis :)

Give Thanks!

   Hi all, happy fall! I have been inactive for a while and so I apalogize for not having any new contests. On that note, on December 1st, this years Christmas art contest will begin, so stay close by!  I hope everyones fall has been sweet and filled with joy and I also hope everyone has a very wonderful Thanksgiving! Its that time of year again, time to be with family and create memories, sadly however with the season comes the stress of the holidays. There is so much to do and juggle that you can feel overwhelmed sometimes. That is why I'd like to share a website that could help with that stress. Calm.com is the name, and its right on! The entire website is simply for you to take a break and calm down, so check it out! Take a breath, calm down and always remember that if you are ever feeling stressed out, think about all the good things is your life! That always seems to help!   Happy Thanksgiving! 

Always, Liwis :)

What are you grateful for?   Comment below! ;)

Summer Updates!

Posted by liwis57740 on July 18, 2015 at 2:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Hi everyone, there are some updates coming to Artstars this Summer! To start I plan to give the homepage just a little remodel. I am have removed the Google and Facebook buttons from the homepage because I realised hat they don't really have to much use to them. But I still want your opinion so please comment below is you think they should stay or go. Next there will be some changes comimg to the contests! I have recently been told that some or the contests such as the recent 4th of July Fireworks Contest are limited to those in the US. They were right and so from now on I will be changing up the contests. My plan is to keep some US Holidays but also have general holidays so anyone may enter. Thats means that unlike before there will be more than one contest at certain times. I still do not have this all figured out and it could still change, so stay tuned for more on this in future updates. Speaking of contests, there is a new contest out today! The theme is "Summer fun under the Sun!", Check it out on the homepage! Also to add to the fun, there is also a new art tool for everyone to use! The art tool Thisissand will now be linked on the Create page!  

I hope everyone is having fun and making awesome memories under the sun this Summer! Always: Liwis :)

Happy Summer! :)

Happy Summer everyone! I have not posted in a long while so I will need to catch up! To start, there is a new contest out today! The theme is 4th of July Fireworks, create what the 4th of July fireworks mean to you, or the memories you have of them. The contests goes from July 1st to July 31st. It goes through the 4th of July so that maybe after you will be inspired to create your masterpeices! :) I will try to stay updated but I plan to not make updates as frequently to Artstars right now. Also I will not be putting the contest events/ winners on Artstars Facebook or Google+ pages, it is just because of the time that it takes to do so. I hope everyone's Summer is going awesome and I cannot wait to see the awesome contest entries you guys will create! ~Liwis ;)
