Okay, so I'm finally working on some new stuff. Yep, finally. I know that's what you're thinking.

Currently I have two new desktop wallpacks that I'm finished with. So look out for those.

Wow, I haven't been on in what feels like forever. I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I did.

Well I got on the other to find that one of my external hard drives isn't working. Grrrr.... I'm trying to recover as much from it as I can, but it is a long process. What makes it so bad is that it is the one I keep all of my graphics and pictures on. I really want to cry. Seriously. I hope I can get most of my stuff back, but I'm not getting my hopes up. Wish me luck.

Okay, so lately I've been getting so many amazing notes and comments and I just wanted to take a moment to thank every single one of you for the amazing words. You have no idea how much I really do appreciate every single one them. It's all of your kind words and appreciation that keep me going with my graphics and resources.

I love to help when I can so you guys are the reason I take the time to write all my tutorials and try to answer every question you ask. Never once have I taken any of that for granted. So this thank you goes out to all of you who have commented, noted, faved, added me to your deviant watch list, or have given me points. I can not thank you enough. I will continue to do what I do and just hope I'm able to continue to pass a little of my knowledge on to you. So again, thank you.

LOVE IT! The new Avenged Sevenfold album is fucking awesome! I don't care what anyone else says, I love it! Acid Rain gives me the chills. What do you Avenged Sevenfold fanatics think? I wish I could have gotten the box set, but I just can't afford it right now. Sucks. Anyways, what's your favorite song from the new album?

Okay, been a while since my last journal so just catching you up.

My eye is fine. The surgery was good and I'm all healed. There's new stuff available so go check that out. I'm trying to get active here and get some more new tutorials up. I'll get there.

On a side note, I'm DAMN EXCITED for the new Avenged Sevenfold album next month! Can. Not. Wait. Oh, yeah. What about you? Are you going to get or have you pre-ordered it already?

Sorry I haven't gotten much new stuff up. I need to get some new brushes and/or stock images up. I had surgery on my eyelid yesterday ( the 29th ) so it's been a little itchy since then. Before then, I think I was too nervous about the surgery to really do much. Thanks for your patience though. I hope you contiune to stick around. In the meantime, there is plenty available on my page to keep you entertained for a while. Enjoy.

Finally, I ordered my new graphic program. Soon I will be making some new stuff. I'm excited.

Update: Got it! I now own Paint Shop Pro X5. Yes! Now I'm going to go see if I still know how to do this.

I need to get a new Paint Shop Pro program. Mine no longer works and my free trial of X5 has expired. I need money. Shame on me. I promise I'm trying to get the money to get a new program and then hopefully get some new stuff going. I really want to make some new tutorials.

Please be patient. I'm really trying.

That's right, 'excitappointment'. Excitement meets disappointment.

Hello, hello, hello. It's been awhile. Well for Christmas I got a new computer. Very exciting? Problems. First problem, it's Windows 8, so it's going to take some getting use to. That's no big deal though. I use a Windows phone and I love it. Second problem, my graphic program ( Paint Shop Pro X2 ) is not compatible with Windows 8. Now I have to upgrade. Third problem, I need the Local Policy Group Editor and my version of Windows 8 doesn't have it. Now I have to upgrade to Windows 8 Professional. I'm excited and bummed all at one time. Hopefully, I'll be able to get the money to upgrade all this soon.

In the meantime, just be patient with me. I downloaded the trial version of Paint Shop Pro X5, so I hope to get something new available before the end of my trial.

On another note, does anyone here play Uncharted 3 online. I would love some usernames, so I can befriend and play with some of you awesome people. My username is dannielle-lee. Simple enough. I'm not a hardcore player so if you're looking for some extreme gaming, I'm not your girl. I play simply for fun.

Ahhhhhhhhh....yeah, that's how I feel. I really, really need to get some new stuff made. How terrible am I?!

How is everyone else doing? What are your plans for the holidays? I will be having a small Christmas with my family and that's probably it. Not very exciting, but it's plenty for me. Holidays make people lose their minds. Common courtesy takes the back seat. What is it about the holidays that make people act like that?! I would never forget my manners during any holiday. Do you have any crazy holiday stories? If so, feel free to share.

Wow. I have been away from here for far too long. I've been playing Resident Evil 6 for what feels like forever now. I'm completely in love with this game. I loved the last two ( Resident Evil 4 and 5 ), but they just keep getting better, in my opinion. I really loved that my two favorite characters, Leon S. Kennedy and Chris Redfield were both going to be in this game, but I have to say, Jake Mueller is a badass character. I'm excited to see where they take him in the future Resident Evil games.

Who else is a Resident Evil game nut? Who's your favorite character?

Well I got new content up. Yeah. Go me. lol. Anyways...I finally saw The Hunger Games, Snow White and the Huntsman, The Lucky One and Fright Night ( 2011 remake ) recently. They were all good movies. Didn't think I was going to like The Hunger Games, but it was a really good movie. I'm tempted to read the books now. We'll see, I'm still reading The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest. Love these books.

What are you guys/girls reading?

Finally, I got another contest entry made for the I Love True Blood stock contest. I'm quite happy. I was beginning to think that I was only going to get one made. Now let us see if I get any more made. Somehow I doubt it.

There's new stock, brush set and wallpaper available. My second entry for the contest will be made into a desktop wallpack when I get to it. For now, enjoy what's there.

Update: I'm working on a couple of tutorials right now so those are coming soon.

Wohoo! New stuff! Everybody loves new content. Right?

I hope you guys are liking all the new stuff. Two tutorials in a few days is good for me. I'm working on another Jeremy Renner ( loving him so very much ) desktop wallpack. I love Neo Ned. It's almost done, I just need to find the right colors. That always ails me. Coloring a graphic eats at me until I have no brain left to use. Do you struggle that much with coloring? Anyways...how many of you have seen Neo Ned?

Okay, so I've noticed that a lot of the tutorials that I find are of application basics. Most of mine are of creating graphics and less basics. My question to you is - would you prefer more application ( Paint Shop Pro ) basics tutorials from me or to continue the way I have been with more creating graphics tutorials?

So....
a - more basic tutorials
b - more creating graphics tutorials


Leave me some comments, please, so I can get an idea of your thoughts. Thank you.


Update: thank you all for your comments. They have helped. Now what I need to do is get some new tutorials written. Where to begin.....

Well, I finally got my brush previews redone. Finally. Way to go, procrastination. Anyways...I now am going to move my polaroid set to the stock area instead of having them in the brushes folder. Then, I need to figure out what is going to take their place in the brushes folder. Yeah. I need to get some new stuff up anyways.

Cait wait 'til August. I get to see my nephew, Liam, and I'm super excited. I miss him so very much.

I've been here, I promise. I've been working on some new brushes, but I keep getting sidetracked. I borrowed some games recently from one of my cousins, so I've been playing those nonstop. I've been here though. I check messages everyday. I reply to notes and comments as often as possible, but i'm still behind. I will get new brushes up soonish though.

Long time, no see. Sorry for the inactiveness that's been going on. I get on almost every day to check messages, but I don't get all my stuff uploaded. Well there are now new items up for you guys. Go check it all out and enjoy.
