Blog & Updates31st August
Cindy's Cardcaptor Cosmos is back!
Michelle from www.greysuburbanskies.net is going to adopt the John Bender fanlisting.
In other news I heard from Eric for the first time in ages ^___^ and my Chia flubby was zapped into an Orange (It'll be Joanna's chia soon) : Can you even believe this set of pets?! ... The lab map was WELL worth saving up for!!!
Gotta go, i'm off to get an afternoon nap *yawns* thankyou everyone for the kind messages *much wub to yous*
*Big kawaii huggles from*
Finished the Rose brush set - 32 brushes (friends only - email to request)
One day I'll put up a webpage with the other restricted brushes (bubbles, celestial, swirls2, newspaper) so people can download them...
This set is fairly simple, no extra effects: just the roses; because roses are beautiful in themselves and you can always add your own effects afterwards! ^^ The preview is not the prettiest (no fading, no overlapping or anything) and has the contrast so you see what they look like on dark or light backgrounds.
This is a screencap of my custom tubes (not available because they are massive files but i could make pngs for friends/regular visitors)
Anyhow I'm just idleing at the computer today compiling and sorting stuff because I feel LOUSY...just started my second course of these new "hardcore" antibiotics which make me into a human vegetable the first week but are responsable for the fact I'm able to go on holiday ^^... I've got to keep remind myself that they are worth it because right now i hate the guts of those ugly smelly horrid little pills. *Smeagol Voice: Stupid Fat Pillsssss*
In other news: I miss Kira *^_^* I'm pretty sure our leaving/returning dates don't overlap now *argh* huggles to you if you are reading this: have great holidays!, Chibi is back ^_^ and Mazzie is a wonderkin >^.^<
Much love to all,
*turning into a pumpkin*

New layout for SLG: Timeless (version 15) - dedicated to the beautiful timeless artwork by Clamp and the faithful friends I have made throughout these years. I scanned the "Flower Fairies" for the main page layouts and "A Christmas Carol" for the splash page. There are still one or two things I might tweak and this layout needs some matching buttons but I'm fairly happy with it, it's plain but pretty. Credits: Clamp for the Tomoyo Image, 'ladanse', 'satansminions' and 'georgia' fonts, notepad, PSP8, dad's scanner.
Now the amazing news is that I may be going on holiday (probably doesn't seem like much to you but I havn't been away for 4 years) If this works out, it's all very precarious, I'll be away upto three weeks. I really need to see my grandparents, it's been so long and I miss them. It's a big risk for my health but I do want to see them so much. Dad is going to rent me a wheelchair, stuff some travel sickness tablets down me and pop us all on the plane to england. It's insane, i can hardly get down the stairs so getting all the way to england..., I'm really excited and scared but it's going to be worth it.
More details later - I'll be leaving, if we go, late august early september so that gives me time to set up an autoresponder, "I'm away" messages on the websites, brief the shadow-wings mods on various things and find a guestbook spam checker (in case SLG gets trolled). I won't shut anything down but just pass on any necessary controls while I'm away.
Much love to all, especially my affiliates, friends and penpals! (^_^)<3
[EDIT] Thankyou for all the lovely comments, I've tweaked the layout background to look more like a table top. So all that needs to be done now is the button/banner set
I'll be leaving a just less than a month...no rush...it felt rushed when we made the decision but all is confirmed now and it's cool. *Wah i'm going to see my GPs!!!*
