random thoughts & icons

10 May
I'm happily married to a wonderful hubby, with three adorable, spoiled rotten much loved, little Pomeranian dogs for children. Which from hence forth will be referred to as "The Baby Dogs". ;) Loooove <3 them to bitty bits!!

Please spay or neuter your pets. Click here to find a low cost spay/neuter program in your area. It's HIP to SNIP. :)

I was a confirmed BtVS/AtS addict, and a die-hard Spuffy (Spike/Buffy) 'shipper. I'm also all about the Firefly & Serenity love. I miss my poor dead shows. *pets them* My current TV obsession interest: Game of Thrones, and I totally ship Jamie/Brienne. They. Kill. Me. And I freaking love Tyrion. He's ah-mazing-pants.

I'm also a avid movie fan. Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, & Gone with the Wind, are some of my favorites. I also love dearly love Jane Austen adaptations. My all time favorite is the 1995 version of Pride & Prejudice with Colin Firth. It was my introduction into the world of Austen, and I was hooked! I also like Sense & Sensibility 1995 with Emma Thompson, Persuasion 1995 with Amanda Root, and Emma 1996 with Jeremy Northam. Another favorite is the 2004 adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's North & South with Richard Armitage. It's absolutely wonderful!!

I can have a strange, and inane sense of humor. Underneath all that, I'm actually fairly traditional, and somewhat conservative.

I double as office manager/graphic artist at work, and play with Photoshop Elements for fun. I make icons, and shamelessly pimp them on my LJ from time to time.

Feel free to friend me whether you like keeping up with my icons, or reading my life ramblings. If you'd like me to friend you back, leave a comment here letting me know. :)

1. Comment on which you take.
I enjoy knowing which icons are liked by others. I like to compare your favorites with my favorites, and it helps me learn what categories, and styles are most appealing. That information helps me plan what types of icons to make in the future.

2. Credit [eyesthatslay] in user pic keywords/comments.
This type of crediting will show up on your User Pic Page. For a detailed post on why I request credit for my icon work, and a step-by-step tutorial on how to credit icons at LiveJournal, click here.

3. Don't hotlink.
Not only is hotlinking against LiveJournal's user policies, hotlinking to my icons is theft of my bandwidth, which I pay for. For a detailed post on what hotlinking is, and why it is wrong, click here.

4. Don't modify.
Don't alter or change my icons in any way, this also includes not removing my user name tags.

5. Don't redistribute without asking.
Please ask before taking my icons and re-posting them in icon sharing blogs, or other icon sites/galleries.

6. Nominations are welcome.
It's always a wonderful surprise when someone has been kind enough to nominate my icons for contests or awards. If you've nommed me, and I'm not aware of it, thank you. :)

If you don't agree with my usage requests, please don't use my icons. It's very simple. I'm also tagging all my icons with my user name due to problems with hotlinking & non-crediting of my work.

If you have a rude or inflammatory comment, please don't post it in my journal. Rudeness will not be tolerated.

Have any icon questions not covered here? Check my FAQs for more information, and answers to questions that I've been asked in the past.

All my past icon posts are saved in my memories, and I've also archived my icons at my website, Captured Memories. Feel free to friend my journal to keep up with my icons, as I always post them here, and only archive them at my website when I have time/energy/inclination to do so.

These are some awards my icons have won.
