Me: "Hm. It's dinnertime. I really should go get food."

*la la la continues to write porn get some important work done*

Me: "Mac and cheese sounds workable. Or maybe just a sandwich. Or-- oooh, what's that?"

*finds Red Dragon icons of awesomeness*

Chris: *opens door and brings in dinner* "Here you go. And when you get done, I made some chocolate pudding; it's in the fridge."
Me: *happysquee*

It's sad, really, how easy I am.

(Ashley, I know the joke you're about to make. Hush.)

Got a lot done yesterday! :-)

1) Renovated the setup of the novel pages in the Writings section.

2) Added a new short story, Think of Me Fondly After I'm Gone.

3) Put up new character portraits on the Karavan page and the one for misc. character art.

4) Added some more icons.

5) And today, seeing as it's Monday, a new chapter of Karavan's Mirror is up. This one was a lot of fun to write. *s*

Made from the We Were Strangers character art I got the other day-- just simple resized ones this time; icons with text added will be put on my webpage during the big overhaul I'm planning soon. :-)

If you'd like to use one of these, please credit the artist, Sheena Kristen Sy. Thanks!

So far I've celebrated the new year by putting up some icons and the Karavan's Mirror Christmas story here, and adding another Moulin Rouge icon to this page.

I haven't done a big "okay, time to seriously renovate everything" website makeover in a while. Might have to do that soon.

Also need to go through my (three or four) files of notes and rearrange everything so I have some idea of what's going on when I start novel-editing.

*reads over entry* Hm. I do have a life outside the computer, honest. Really.

Okay, maybe not.

Had a lazy day yesterday. Chris worked on a puzzle-- the guy's an addict-- while I read him some short stories by William F. Nolan and Jack Ketchum. Then we went out and rented some movies. He hadn't seen any of the Highlander movies in a while but he'd liked the series as a kid, so we rented the second and third ones (nobody had the first) and ohmygoodness. Scenery-chewing and dorky eighties-movie special effects and just so much fun. :-D

In holiday-news, I was thinking about doing that meme where you think up ten things, big or small, that you want and see if anybody sends/makes them for you, but I could only think of two-- fanart for Karavan's Mirror, or donating some money to any of the charities on my sidebar. So instead of scrambling frantically for eight other items to pad the list, have a stocking to fill. *s*

I also got a Christmas icon from [ profile] iconseeyou. Hee.

ETA: Here's the post where I got my icon: over 200 of them; something for everybody. :-D

So this has basically been today:

9:00-- Get up. Hear laughter from out on the front porch. Remember that my brother got a pair of BB guns last night. Remind husband and brother to not shoot their eyes out.

12:30-- Go over to mom and dad's for a while. Watch something called Dance of the Dead, based on a Richard Matheson short story.

2:00-- Chris goes to work.

2:15-- Run the dishwasher.

2:20-7:45-- Go through my novel, make sure it's query-sendout worthy.

7:45-8:30-- Discover the wonderfulness of 'images' search, proceed to look up Joaquin Phoenix icons.

5 minutes ago-- "Well, Chris'll be home in a little over an hour, and I've had a productive day. Yay! Feel like I'm forgetting something, though."

Stomach: *GROWL*

"That would be it."
changeyourstars8: (Search me)
Icons + captions of some of the funny faces Jack makes on LOST.

Go see. And join me in the dying-from-laughter.
changeyourstars8: (Heathers)
Fifty Heathers icons.

*is happy*
changeyourstars8: (Skippy)
Skippy icons!!

I like my new one. *G*
changeyourstars8: (Default)
Maybe I did feel like making icons. One, anyway. :-D

changeyourstars8: (No Day But Today)
I'm having so much fun with my new graphics program. :-D Getting better at the whole layers thing.

For anyone interested, I just updated my DeviantArt gallery with twelve icons using quotes from Wicked. Example:

(brush by tsuyogari)

Hope you like them!

In case anyone's interested, I've updated my DeviantArt gallery with some Moulin Rouge and Firefly icons. Sometime next week I'll add them to my webpage, too. :-)
changeyourstars8: (Default)
Got a bunch of icons made today, so I'm proud of myself. :-) And I was going to do something else, I'm sure of it, but then I saw this link and all plans/thoughts/brain cells went poof.
changeyourstars8: (Lucy)
So far as the icon making goes . . . *pets pretty new text brushes* Granted, I don't know how using them is going to work out, but I'll find out tomorrow or the next day, when I actually try. Right now, I'm still gathering the shiny. ;-)

ETA: Jekyll and Hyde lyrics text brushes!!!

*tries not to squeal like an obsessive fangirl*

Went to Chris's parents for Easter, and watched our nephews and neice hunt Easter eggs on the front lawn. :-) By the time we left, it was really hot out and the a.c. in the van is crapped out, so we had the windows down. I got inside and walked by a mirror, and . . . well, imagine a brown string mop, flipped and twisted in ways that show up in a toy poodle's worst nightmare. That was my hair.

In less Medusa-like news, I've been thinking about starting an icons/headers section on my website . . . some from movies, but also some featuring character portrait art (if it's all right with the artists) and novel quotes. So Kath, if you have any ideas about what icons or livejournal headers you'd like to see, bounce them my way-- one with Trader featuring "Desperado" lyrics is already on my list. Heh.

First I have to learn what I'm doing with brushes and fonts and whatnot, though. Wish me luck. :-)
changeyourstars8: (Ki'Rana)
Okay, so I'm not an expert icon maker, but I'm pleased with this new one I just made. :-) I used a portrait of my character Ki'Rana (done by the ladies at Warsheep Productions) and the words on it are from the Big & Rich song posted below . . . Kath sent it to me a while back telling me that it really reminded her of this character, and I very much agreed. :-)

((5 icons now, by the way. Still searching for a sixth))

Holy Water

Somewhere there's a stolen halo
I used to watch her wear it well
Everything would shine wherever she would go
But looking at her now you'd never tell
Someone ran away with her innocence
A memory she can't get out of her head
I can only imagine what she's feeling
When she's praying, kneeling at the edge of her bed
And she says take me away
And take me farther
Surround me now
And hold, hold, hold me like holy water
She wants someone to call her angel
Someone to put the light back in her eyes
She's looking through the faces, the unfamiliar places
She needs someone to hear her when she cries
She just needs a little help
To wash away the pain she's felt
She wants to feel the healing hands
Of someone who understands
And she says take me away
And take me farther
Surround me now
And hold, hold, hold me like holy water
Holy water
changeyourstars8: (Striptease)
I update solely to show off my new icon. (the creator, double_o_sayid, has made a whole bunch of funny Lost error-message ones). :-)
changeyourstars8: (Default)
I finally made some Lost icons/banners!

More under the cut...
