Friends Only

(created by daphnecool @LJ)

All of my fandom work (fanfiction, icons, wallpapers, tutorials,...) will be posted at [info]love_sacrificed.

What does get posted here? )

New Layout

As part of coming back to dreamwidth, I figured a new facelift for this journal (and [community profile] love_sacrificed) is in order. It's been over a year since I really looked at any of my journals. Be it here or at livejournal or at insanejournal.

Even longer since I did anything but moderate one of my contest communities or post a batch of icons. To be honest: towards the end I was stressing myself more with this than anything else. I took a step back as I undertook some major changes in my life (new job, new city) and it took longer than I expected. However, I think I needed that time away.

Anyway, I've also started on updating my icons and I think this won't be the end of it.

I need a little help with voting...

This isn't exactly the update on me that I had planned since the beginning of the year... time sure flies by. Way faster than I ever experienced. I can't believe that March is nearly over already. Hopefully this coming weekend will be better even if my to do list keeps on growing which just makes me avoid it all - which is so very helpful with reducing it!

Anyway, the reason for this post: I could use some more votes over on [community profile] lotr20in20!

round 03: tie breaker (round 2)
round 05: themes voting
round 05: category voting
round 05: ac voting

And for anyone who feels like making LotR/The Hobbit icons:
round 06: sign ups

SPOILER: The Day of the Doctor!!

(Manually crossposted from dreamwidth since the post still didn't appear here since the 23rd November. I guess there are still problems with that)

Wherein I ramble about the 50th Anniversary Special for Doctor Who!

Boring Talk )


I think there are countless things I can still mention - that I should mention - but I've also got an icon post to code for doctorwho20in20.

Now I really want to watch it all over again. And again. And again! :D :D

A Daily Icon Challenge

Come and join in at the fun at [info]dailyicons!

You can sign up for general themes (everything goes) or something more specific. You can sign up for 10, 25, 50 or 100 icons!

Once a day a prompt gets posted that you can use for your table by submitting your icon. Each prompt is open for 2 days. Depending on your table size, you have a set amount of time to fill up your table with prompts that way. For example you would have a month to finish 10 icons or a year to finish up 100 icons. That way if you miss a couple of days because you're busy or the prompt just doesn't work you still have plenty of opportunities to finish :D

Even better - you can sign up with up to 3 different challenge variants! (table size and / or topic)

Additionally, once a month the top 5 icons will be voted on!

voting help...

Challenge 57 over at [info]dwicontest could use some more votes!

25th Jan, 2010


This won't happen any time soon... at least not before I get ahead on the icontests I already mod, but since [info]dwicontest is practically dead - Would anybody be interested in reviving it?

I've tried asking the mod in comments to recent posts several months ago to at least give an update. If it's rl, too few votes/entries in the open challenges. No reply or official post ever came and after checking her journal on Livejournal, I could see that she had made several public and locked posts since the last post here. At least one of them had even been a picspam. Even a lack of interest in IJ, DW or whatever would have been fine instead of just letting it die.

On the other hand. I know I've been severally lacking when it comes to [info]merlin_icontest but there's still only one person who entered and usually there are just two and it's kind of disheartening. Especially since I still have to catch up with season 2. I think I'll close the current challenge (as soon as I'm done posting as it's just no use keeping it open) and put the icontest on hiatus either until I've seen the "new" episodes or someone wants to take it over.

I also haven't decided what to do with [info]dailyicons. Right now I've limited my field of interest to two fandoms: Doctor Who and Harry Potter, so I feel beyond uninspired to take it active again. However, I've been itching to mod a 20in20 community. Specifically, I've been considering getting one open for all fandoms with a pretty open range for what can get claimed. I guess I could convert it.

And now I really should start studying for my exam on Wednesday. Oh yeah... and maybe extend my icontest on Livejournal because there aren't any entries so far... Not that I didn't help what with my lack of reminders!

So much to do... so why the hell is time insisting on running way too fast???

new asylum

Since I love procrastinating instead of doing important things, I've decided to create an asylum for support. Anybody who wants to achieve something (no matter what) is welcome to join and share. Maybe with a little pressure/control possibilities it will result in success!


I certainly know that even if there aren't any comments, just posting regular updates will get to me actually do something... nothing worse than a guilty conscience when actually seeing it in writing.

Photoshop 7

Anyone remember my offer to translate my notes on Photoshop 7 as I type it up? Well, after months of doing nothing I've started typing up again and am currently on Page 8 of 14 (well... a page meaning 2 pages actually as it's a sheet of paper with notes on both sides). And I have a feeling that I'm moving along quicker than before (might be the difference in neatness though...)

Anyway, I uploaded what I typed up so far to see if it's actually understandable. I would ask about formatting, but since I published it through Google Docs, it's a bit of a hit and miss (as in Google Docs replaced all my arrows with other letters and while I use the "Find and Replace" function to fix that, I'm not sure if I might have missed anything).

Anyway, for anybody who's interested you can check it here:

I also noticed that Photoshop CS3 is still pretty similar ;)

(And yes, this is my way of procreating when I should be working on my Bachelor Thesis... although I could always post more of my icons -- if only I wouldn't hate the coding /read: numbering of the icons/ so much)

voting help

I need voting help for challenge 11 of my icontest community [info]dailyicons. There's a three-way tie and I don't want to announce three out of five icons as winners.

15th Mar, 2009


So... during the summer last year I had a book about Photoshop 7 from the university library since I wanted to check something (not sure what any more) and I ended up reading the first half of it and taking notes of the little things I didn't know/hadn't discovered in my exploring yet. When my practical semester started I didn't have time to finish it and now I have the book again and plan on finishing it soon (hopefully today so I can bring it back together with other books tomorrow)...

So far all my notes are on paper, but I plan on typing it up and wondered if anybody would be interested in it. I'm asking now since all my notes are in German and I wouldn't mind translating it as I type up (since I need the English terms for any tutorials I end up writing anyway). I'm sure that I left some things out that I already know about (and won't forget again) last year, but I seem to be more exact this time around.

Anybody who's interested, feel free to drop me a comment and I'll post it once I'm done with taking notes/typing the notes up.

Happy New Year

I wish everybody a nice (and mostly harmless) New Year's Eve and a Happy New Year.

24th Dec, 2008

Merry Christmas!

I wish everybody a Happy Christmas (or whatever your celebrating)! Hope there will be/were a lot of gifts (and especially things you wanted ;) ) Have a nice couple of days with family and loved ones without fights or other aggravations.

I'm suitably tipsy already on 3 or 4 glasses of sparkly wine, half of my gifts are unpacked (the other half will come with my grandparents tomorrow after lunch probably) and now my parents are a couple of houses down with a few more people who have grown kids that aren't home on Christmas (or "in bed" at 10pm like I usually am because I'm bored watching TV while the TV is too distracting for me working on my computer)

23rd Dec, 2008
