9 Butterfly Icons

Since underthesun73 asked, and I know a few other people on here dig butterflies, I present 9 butterfly icons! :D

If you want them personalized with a name or whatever, just holler, and I can do that.

5 Stacy & Clinton icons

It's frustrating! You'd think that two fashionista-types who have a pretty successful show on TLC would have more pictures posted on the internet... It's like the same five, in varying qualities ( and not even good quality at that ).

BUT, I do <3 Stacy and Clinton lots and lots, and in my imaginary world, the three of us are BFFs and I would never have to shop by myself... ;)

3 Stephen Colbert and a call for requests.
Well, it's been a looooooong time since I made icons. I mucked around a bit last night, just to get back into the swing of things, but the rust is a cruel mistress. So, if you have something you want an icon of ( just one icon each, this go around ), leave it here and I'll see what I can do. Or, if there's a general theme you want me to work on over time, drop that here, too. :D

12 Stephen Colbert Icons

Here are 12 Stephen Colbert icons I've had sitting on my HD for awhile now, might as well put them out there. Thanks to peeps at tcr_images for the caps/scans. In case you're wondering what this "Charlene" thing is all about, Stephen used to be in a band during the 80's called "Stephen and the Colberts"... He made a video for one of his songs: "Charlene (I'm Right Behind You)", which, in fact, does not violate the restraining order she filed against him... ;) HEE! So, if you haven't seen the video and you're a child of the 80's, you really should CHECK IT OUT! ( if you do watch it and can tell me which band he's ripping off with the arm/face thing near the end, I'd love you, because I can not remember and it's driving me crazy! )

105 Anne Taintor icons
You guys know Anne Taintor, right?  She finds these fabulous old school photographs and puts captions on them, like so:


Well, over the past couple of nights I've gone through and cropped a lot of her images into icons.  You'll notice that some of them look fuzzy or grainy or spotty or whatever... that's because they're old photographs and I didn't want to mess with the integrity of the picture - that's part of the charm.  :D

My biggest battle was trying to crop them so you could still kind of read the text and get a feel for the picture, itself...  I wasn't quite as successful on some as on others.

So, if you see something in there that you'd like me to spend a little more time on ( more than the five minutes each )... to sharpen up or enlarge the text, leave me a comment and I'll take a whack at it.  :D

Also, I don't need credit on these, because I did virtually nothing but crop and border them.  I'd prefer you credit Anne Taintor or her website in you keywords if you take any.

I am much too lazy to code a damn table for over 100 icons... LOL...  SO, you'll be linked directly to my LJ Pic Gallery, which is:


Hope you guys enjoy these as much as I do.  :D

10 "Down With Love" icons
I put this in as I was sorting stuff today, because I love it. :D But I kept looking up at all the technicolor glory and it kept saying "BRIGHT ICONS!" to me.

So, because I didn't want to spend 8 hours on this, because I have stuff to do, I went to ewan-captures.net and snagged a few caps. I'll SO be going back and making more, just because the fun colors make me HAPPY!


'cause this hawk's now a dooooooooooooooooove...Collapse )

12 "Cutting Edge" icons
So, I saw the awesome new "Cutting Edge" mood theme in crackified and it got me thinking... more importantly, it had a link to caps! :D So, caps from _jems_ - thank you! If people are into it, I'll probably make more.


You want me to put my hands *where*?Collapse )

BSG Helo/Starbuck... umm... banner?

I made this awhile ago, and I don't know what I was thinking. Friends only banner? LJ header? Who knows. ::::shrugs:::: I don't know if it's worth putting out into the whole of fandom, because I see lots of little things that annoy me; but it's kinda okay, so I'm just putting it here. :)

Plus, I added a tags section to my sidebar! Go me with the organization!

16 X-Men: The Last Stand icons

I've taken all images from the "X-Men: The Last Stand" trailer, so if you haven't seen that and you want to stay entirely spoiler-free, then don't look. :D And, geez, there are a few here that don't include Wolverine... go figure. Plus one bonus Johnny Cage kicking Scorpion's ass icon, just because I'm a total dork like that, and am trying really, really hard not to make a whole bunch of "Mortal Kombat" icons.


Do you know what happens to an icon that's hit by lightning?Collapse )
