More Romance Cover icons and many others... @ 11:45 am


An early Valentine's Day post... more romance novel covers, some from icontests, (scroll over the icon to see what the book is that I used.) Also some Austen icons (some from icontests). Also, misc. icons including one from the book Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides which I just finished - excellent read, I highly recommend it, and one icon of Heath Ledger from Casanova RIP.

And hey! We're over 200 members now - thank you!!

Crediting is wonderful but not necessary. If crediting, use crymeariver_ I do request you comment if you are taking one, since it helps me to know what went over well for other posts.

Austen, North & South, and The Count of Monte Cristo @ 06:03 pm

Current Music: Girls Just Want to Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper

Another post - in the same week!

This time around I have various period icons, including 7 icons from various Jane Austen movies, 4 from North and South and 2 from The Count of Monte Cristo. Many from icontests, if you scroll over them, you'll see where they were from. I'm starting a series on some "moods" P&P ones, this is the start, if you like them, I'll make more. All P&P caps by me. More P&P icons with be forthcoming from both versions - I'm on a kick.

Icon Dump @ 06:09 pm


Icon dump of Gerry Butler, Richard Armitage, Ioan Gruffudd, and Alan Rickman among others. Most are from icontests. I have some other icons from various movies as well like North and South, Phantom of the Opera and 300. I also made two of Eric Bana as Hector in Troy. I've always loved Hector in The Iliad (I named my golden retriever after him!) So, even though he has dark hair in the movie, he's still my noble, shining, golden Hector from the book...

Credit is wonderful, but not necessary. However, I would appreciate it if you would comment if you're going to take any, since I like to know how well they're received, and it helps me when I'm deciding what to make in future posts if I know what went over well. No hotlinking please.

10 Horatio Hornblower icons from Mutiny @ 09:31 pm


More Horatio icons from the Mutiny, and I will soon be posting more from Retribution. I also have two Outlander icons, my idea of The Fiery Cross, one remade from one of the challenges I've entered (see below). I also have a ton of various icontest entries, scroll over the icon to see what contest it was from. They include: Sean Bean, Gerry Butler, Austen icons and various period movies.

A polyglot of icons @ 05:22 pm


I know it's been a while since I've posted, I've been busy with my new job and don't have as much time to make icons anymore, but at least I haven't stopped completely - nevah!

I've got a cornucopia of icons this time, I've been saving them up. Mostly Austen based, because I recently saw Sense & Sensibility again and loved Alan Rickman in it. Also some of Emma, (both versions) and some P&P3. 10 Pirates, 6 Master & Commander, mostly of Pullings (I know a few people who are crazy about Mr. D'Arcy), I couldn't make up my mind, so some have borders, some don't, some have text, some don't. Also, I have 3 Outlander icons, from the books by Diana Gabaldon. I finally made a David Wenham icon of Jamie, he's another favorite for casting, and I chose Tom Hollander as Tom Christie, who is the actor I picture in A Breath of Snow and Ashes. I have them headed as all from that book, but the ones of Roger and Jamie can be from any of them. I've also got some Narnia icons as well, all from various challenges. I also have a challenge entry from The Libertine as well.

Credit is wonderful, but not necessary. However, I would appreciate it if you would comment if you're going to take any, since I like to know how well they're received, and it helps me when I'm deciding what to make in future posts if I know what went over well. No hotlinking please. All caps are made by me, unless it was from a challenge.

ETA: Oh boy - thank you I now have over 100 friends subscribing on my friends list! You're the best and so supportive and generous with your comments! Thank you!!! :H

9 Dear Frankie icons @ 09:47 am


No seafaring icons this week, I'm afraid. Instead I have Gerard Butler! I finally saw the movie, Dear Frankie, over the weekend. What a great movie - and Gerard Butler - yummy! That voice! Boy, did I cry!

Also, I've made some Kate Winslet icons, I love her and even the Fug Girls thinks she's great! She's one of my favorite actresses and is just beautiful. A great subject for icons. Some of you may have seen a few of these before from challenges, but this post will keep them altogether. I have one Outlander icon from Drums of Autumn of Morag MacKenzie, from the book by Diana Gabaldon. I also have some various Challenge entries, including Sean Bean and Colin Fith and Ioan Gruffudd.

I'm starting a new job next week, so I'm not sure how often I'll be posting icons, but most likely it will be every two weeks or so, depending on my free time, maybe sooner, I just don't know yet. Credit is wonderful, but not necessary. However, I would appreciate it if you would comment if you're going to take any, since I like to know how well they're received, and it helps me when I'm deciding what to make in future posts if I know what went over well. No hotlinking please. All Dear Frankie caps made by me.
