106 Icons!

It's been a long time since I posted anything, and I know I've been very bad about commenting and about replying to emails. My only excuse is that, shortly after Christmas, I hit an all time low. But yesterday, quite unexpectedly, I suddenly started feeling better! I have no idea why -- maybe because I have a cold and, almost literally, can't breathe. In the past I've generally felt better after a sudden shock, like falling off the boat and cracking my head, or waking up in a shower of water because the roof was leaking...

(And just writing that has made me miss the boat so much. I wasn't made to live in a house).

Anyway, I think it's adrenalin, and I hope it lasts a while.

I've a few things I've been meaning to post (and I really want to do the 21 First Lines meme because, as far as I know, that's everything I've ever written and more) but I'm starting with almost a year's worth of icons.

Sadly, that's only 106!

106 is a lot of icons!

I do like your use of colour and light, they are mini-artworks!

Thank you :-)

(It's the usual business of seeing other people do so much, and wondering where my time gets squandered ;-)

I'm glad you're feeling better.

There are some beautiful icons here. They make me realise how important framing is, when working with such a small canvas.

Thank you :-)

The framing is really my favourite part.

Art Nouveau

I think you may have a point about the adrenaline being something to really spark you - I think I have that too, if I get excited about some new project, it can bring me out of a slump. I'm sorry though, to hear that you've been in such a slump at all. Especially if you don't know what caused it, because then you don't know to recognise the signs if it happens again.

Also, nice icons! :) I love that it's a mix, and I love all the almost nekkid men! :P Feel more than free to share more.

(Also, have you seen the Hobbit? I was reminded from your LotR icons.)

In my case, it's definitely something chemical because the circumstances (which are what pushed me down in the first place) haven't changed, though I suppose I've got used to them...

I'm glad you like the icons :-) The nekkid men were all made for man_challenge, and there are some more (some of them even more nekkid, LOL) in earlier posts with the icons tag.

Yes, I've seen The Hobbit! Did you enjoy it? Legolas is going to be in the next one!

Don't Stop Believing

Is it something you want to talk about? I hope you know you can email me, should that be the case.


More nekkid men! I will be sure to check them out.... and I mean that in every sense of the word(s). :P

I did enjoy it. It's been ages since I read the book, but it made me want to read it again. It was good. :) And mmm, Legolas. :P

Oh Dear

Sorry you've been feeling down in the doldrums - but I am really pleased that you are feeling better.

Glad you're feeling better, and sorry to hear you weren't so good before.

Cracking your head sounds a rather drastic way to recover your joie de vivre, but I totally agree about adrenaline. If only it was over the counter...

Wouldn't that be good? (In a way, I suppose it is, called 'Sport', but I've found that that has uncomfortable side effects ;-)
