Hey all. I just did a quick friends cut; mostly inactive journals, but also some names I just flat out didn't recognize.
If you feel you've reached this message in error, please leave a comment.
I finished the friends cut. I mostly cut people who didn't comment to the entry regarding the friends cut and the people who haven't updated in a while. There are absolutely no hard feelings in all of this.
I wish y'all nothing but the best, and I hope that we'll see each other around.

I'm actually not sure how many of y'all actually live in the Phoenix area, but I wanted to share something with y'all, and maybe those of you in Phoenix can help.
A friend of mine from high school is getting married on Saturday. I've been friends with Natalie since elementary school, she is seriously one of the nicest people I've ever met.
This past weekend, the house that she shares with her fiance burned to the ground. Thankfully, both Natalie and Jake made it out okay. However, they lost their pit bull and ferrets in the fire along with all of their other possessions. The insurance that they have only covers the physical house and nothing that was inside.
Here's a message from a mutual friend of ours with info on the car wash that they're holding this Thursday to raise money:
Come wash cars with us this Thursday morning starting at 8:30am
at the Arby's on 20th St. & Bell Road.
It is so important that we get as many people as we can to go. Even if it just to get your car washed. My amazing friend of 9 years, Natalie Mendoza and her fiance Jake lost everything they owned the weekend before their wedding.. including their loved pit bull Malee and her 4 ferrets... in a house fire. It destroyed everything. Please come raise money with us to help Natalie and Jake start a new life.
If you live in the area, please go get your car washed. A few bucks will make the difference.

Seriously. Join. You don't have to make icons to participate, just join to vote if you want. There are over 60 people signed up, so I have the notion that it's going to be an exciting contest! :)

I just did a bit of a friends cut... just the journals that hadn't been updated in ages, though. If you feel that you've reached this message in error, please leave a comment.
I really never wanted to do one of these because I get along with all of you on different levels. But those of you that have been cut, I just don't feel like we're clicking anymore. You don't read my journal, I don't read yours, and there's no commentage from either one of us. This way, it'll save us both some room on the flist.

So the icon making is on an indefinite hiatus. Because my computer was running like crap, Char suggested that I get rid of PSP7 seeing as how it was a pirated version. Since then, things have been running much better.
Unfortunately, I didn't finish the House cast icons. There are 63 as opposed to the 130 I had planned. There are actually quite a few of them that I don't like (mostly because I was working with new coloring ideas, and I hadn't quite figured out what I liked yet), and there's at least two icons of Jesse that are exactly the same base. Oops. And some of them are foggier then I would like. Oh well. Can I just say though how much I enjoyed working with the pictures of Jen? Mostly because they were larger and gave me room to do fun cropping. But also? How stinkin' cute is she?
Regardless, here are Hugh, Jennifer, Jesse, and Omar for your viewing pleasure.

Oh yeah, cross posted to minimally_yours Check it out!
I've decided that I should just post the icons that I have done because it might be a while before I make more since my computer is on the fritz. I may, however, try and figure out how to use Adobe Photoshop. I don't know. If I wind up figuring things out in there, I'll really be monopolizing the computer time, and I don't think that would make my family too happy. We'll see.

OK. I think the Backstreet icon muse has been beaten, not just to death, but to a bloody pulp. As always, constructive criticism is always appreciated.
Hmmm... I'm (a) bored, (b) procrastinating, and (c) watching Red Eye so that means I've got a perfect opportunity to post icons. Rachel McAdams (omg how cute is she?!) just got doused with an iced mocha. Anyway. Icons, yeah, right.
( Fear's Taking FlightCollapse )
I'd forgotten how awesome Rachel McAdams' slingbacks in this movie were. And how Creepy McCreepster Cillian Murphy is. Oh how I enjoy this movie.
P.S. It is this humble, craptastic icon maker's opinion that these icons are craptastic. Just FYI. But any constructive criticism is welcome.
So here are icons.
Because I'm bored.
Sneak Peek: 06. 10. 25.
( Someone save me.Collapse )
I have a question... when does Jack Bauer pee? Anyone know? Good news though, they found the nerve gas, he's taking the rest of the day off. The rest of the last season of 24 will be spent by the pool at the White House. Also, the First Lady is an ADPi. Woot for Jean Smart!! :)
So my icon folder has been growing exponentially recently. I have a whole bunch that I've made and haven't shared. So I thought now was a good time as any. Here we go.
Sneak Peek: 17. 05. 19.
( Yes, yes, yes here we go! NSync has got the flow!Collapse )
Never fear, I am working on more because I am now jobless.
Alright. I'm making the most random journal entry because I'm determined to make at least one entry once a day this month. I almost did it in October and November, so I must do it this month.
I have finished my Christmas shopping!! Woohoo!! :D However, the Christmas cards are still not in the mail. They probably won't be until next week. I suck, I know. bardess, could I get your address too?
I've made new friends!! skolar02 and hey_sweetbaby, welcome to my madness. And I rest in comfort that you will not roll your eyes at me when I go on a Backstreet tangent like my RL friends (or skip the entry entirely, or you know, whatever). skolar02, you'll be happy to know that Luke is one of my favorite subjects. Check out the memories, lots of game recaps and picspams to go around. And there was that one time that I met him and all...
Gah. I guess I'll post the icons that I made for previous challenges since I'm not caught up on current ones...
Sneak Peek: Scratch that, there are only four. (Heh, four...) ( 2 Rachel and 2 BackstreetCollapse )
I think I'm going to go to bed... because I need to be up and out of bed before 11 am and all that tomorrow.
Until next time...
Lots of love and Luke Walton too,
Work is being a dick so I've decided against my better judgement that two can play this game and I called in sick. In all fairness to myself, I really haven't been feeling well since Sunday, and things were vacating my stomach yesterday.
Here are oodles of icons for your viewing pleasure (or maybe not). Minus the entries to the challenges though.
Sneak Peek: 19. 10. 22.
( I'm an In-- I'm an InstigatorCollapse )
Good night and good luck.
P.S. Commenting, crediting, and feedback are always greatly appreciated.
ETA: You'll get major brownie points if you can tell me who coined "good night and good luck."
OK, so I'm just going to post these and get it over with because I want to use them, yo. And I can't use them without giving
y'all Anna an opportunity to use them too. And seeing as how both challenges that I entered a few weeks ago are both now over, I can post them.
So here goes...
Sneak Peek: 01. 06. 13.
( The Boys Are Back In TownCollapse )
There'll be more coming on King Tut and my last day in
sunny rainy California later. Right now, it's time for bed.
Until next time...
Lots of love and Luke Walton too,
This is here because I want to be able to link to this in my userinfo. Feel free to ignore...

I just had to post this really quick because this is the first icon I've produced in a while that hasn't been utter crap. Charmin, you're the expert, let me know.
Feedback. Please and thanks.
