This journal has 96 watchers! Amazing... thank you everyone! Once we hit 100 I'll post a request-type post, so watch out for that!
If you want any special graphics for the holidays, please direct any images to my spam post! I've been having fun with the images you guys have been giving me so far, so keep them coming! I'll be making an icon post with all of the icons I've made at the end of the month from now on, so that's when you can expect to see icons from your suggestions.
And lastly, a bit of news.
I'll be changing the way I work starting January. I've been having a really hard time with getting my inspiration to kick in, so I've decided that after three years of making icons I need a vacation of sorts.
Don't worry, I'm not leaving! I'm just going to do the bare minimum iconmaking (this means inuawards, sesshy_icontest, and la_corda_itest) and just vote/promote/watch everything else. I've been procrastinating more and more lately, and I think taking a little time away from everything will help jump-start my creativity again.
After my month of semi-hiatus I will return with a new passion, and a special new system for iconmaking that I think will be really fun and exciting for me, so here's hoping that next year will be a good one! I don't want to spoil the surprise, but it will involve a monthly resolution, and some exciting challenges for myself that you guys will be able to help me with!
While I'm "away" you guys can continue spamming me with images, and please follow my tumblr? Now that I've gotten the idea of how to use it, I'll start doing something neat with it in January~ I know there's a lot of stock stuff on there right now... but that's because I find it inspiring. I promise in January I'll start doing something more interesting and nerdy.
And by "away" this does not mean that I'm not checking my email and hanging around on LJ... honestly, I don't think that's possible for me. I'll still be around, I just won't be making as many icons. Think of this as me trying to find ~balance~ in my life. XD
