im still alive

February 12th, 2005 (02:00 pm)

Mood:: aggravated

Believe it or not I am still alive! I started my new job on monday and im already wanting out! The problem is I want to be college at least doing a few courses and im not able to do that :(

Anyway with that said! I hope that loads of people are taking part in the BBC Costume Drama icon contest! talking of contests, I came 2nd at the Depp Stillness Communtiry with the icon shown in the award I received below!

I think that my graphic skills are getting better! dont want to sound big-headed though!!

Hopefully I should have more time on the net soon to update some of my sites, and finish a Timeless Collection!! Oh and before I came seriously busy, I have opened a Draco/Hermione Icon Community so if you have any icons dedicated to them, then please add....

Mood:: chipper

I have not yet had chance to get my film developed from when I visited Quarry Bank Mill the other day! but as soon as I do, I will post some of the pics here! Im afraid there was no Mr Thornton look-a-likes :(  but it was such a beautiful place...

And so with that, I have been influenced to create a few icons, at the moment they are just of Margaret Hale (Daniela D-Ashe) but I hope you like... if you want to use please credit

Mood:: bouncy

Since it is a Sunday, and suppose to be the day of rest.... I have decided to leave my college work (just for today) and be creative, so I have made a new icon! Hope you all like :)

I know that it doesnt relate back to the theme of my livejournal but I love PotC, Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom, so I just couldnt resist!! It took me forever to create! but I think that its prob one of the best icons I have created in a while!

Also since I am in a creative mood, some people might be glad to know that I will also be working on my Pride and Prejudice Music Video! Im not too sure if I will be able to finish it today, but I will try!!

Finally, it is nearly February, so please remember to check back at the BBC Costume Drama Community soon for the monthly icon challenge!!

Mood:: tired

Ok so the last few days have been absolute Hell!! I have that much college work to do its incredible! and now my parents are on about; its time for me and my sister to move out!! and both of us only work part-time!! head-hurts!

Anyway, all my websites have come to a hault, except this journal, which I try and keep as active as possible! Oh and on a lighter note! I am luving all of these period drama, mood-themes that are going around at the moment! They are fantastic! I managed to watch Sense & Sensibility the other night! Such a fantastic movie! You have just got to love Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet and Alan Rickman is just Fantastic!!

Well I am off to Quarry Bank Mill on Wednesday to take a few pictures and do a few quick sketches for my Art Class! I actually visited this Mill when I was at school (GCSE-History)..... never imagined any sexy masters like Mr Thornton back then..... hehe

A Timeless Collection

January 16th, 2005 (06:07 pm)

Mood:: creative

Well, to say that I have been busy over the last few days is a serious understatement! I have only been able to get online now and again! Anyway, I do have good news! I have opened a period drama collective [A Timeless Collection] where I hope to hold all graphics and sites dedicated to some of the best period dramas shown on TV and in the Movies!

If anyone is interested in submitting any of their work or a site then please feel free! All are welcome!

I think that will do for now! Im still really busy with my college work, ive got to get 2 whole units finished by april! and ive only just started my second!! **dont panic**

BBC Costume Drama - Icon Comp!!

January 11th, 2005 (02:13 pm)

Mood:: energetic

Yay!! I came 1st and 2nd (still icons) in an Icon Comp at the BBCCostumeDrama Community!! Just LOVE that site!! Im sooooo happy!! :)

2nd and

All of the icons were fab! My Fave was probably this one by ohshocking !! I love animated icons and I am hopeless at creating them!

I love how only part of the icon is animated! Very Clever!!

Anyway, another reason for this update, (apart from the fact that I am getting obsessed with livejournal) is because I am in the middle of creating a site which will hopefully hold loads of goodies (icons, fanfic, fan-art etc) dedicated to period dramas!!
And I need your HelpCollapse )

Oh and if anyone is interested, I have uploaded a quick sketch, that I may use in my second A'Level unit (Art and Design)
Im Thinking FairiesCollapse )

Fun Little Experiment

January 5th, 2005 (07:13 pm)

Mood:: energetic

First off I want to say 'Happy New Year!!' I hope everyone was able to celebrate into 2005!!

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the "coolest" book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

"How very odd!" said she in a low and disappointed voice, as she turned away to the window. - Sense and Sensibility

Along with my Harry Potter books, my Jane Austen collection is right next to me all the time!!

Thanks to [ lauralorien ]  for keeping my entertained with this!! so much fun :)

Mood:: amused

Ok so.... Christmas is over! Hope everyone had a special day! Unfortunately I was not well over christmas (aww.....) but I am feeling much better now and I am looking forward to New Years Eve!

I have made a few new avatars, one being my default and the others you can find [here] - I have started to create a new site for all of my graphics, music videos etc.... I can imagine that it is going to take me some time, as I have that many graphics!!

Anyway, hope everyone has a Happy New Year..... bring on 2005!!! I havent made up my mind on any new years resolutions yet, however I have started researching my family tree so I hope to get that finished!!
