Birth stones may be the most common objects associated with particular months, but there are also specific flowers designated for them. Some months have just one flower, others have two choices. You could use these icons to denote the month of your birth, or you could just save your favorite from each month to use throughout the year.

The website I posted earlier, breastfeedingart.net, inspired me to make these thirty-two icons of mothers nursing their babies. These images span over eight hundred years and four continents. Enjoy!

Every once in a while I like to do a bit of sprucing up with regards to my friends list. I have no intention of making a big "friends cut", but I don't like clutter; so if there are people who are not reading or don't care, I might like to take them off. I don't mind if you want to read and not comment, but if there are people who are no longer interested in LJ or in my LJ specifically, that's who I'm trying to weed out.

Although for most of you it's not necessary, please comment here if you wish to stay. If you feel we don't click, or you don't have time, or what have you, and you'd like to part company--tell me that, too, please. I'll post reminders about this later so that no one misses it.

Sorry to be a pain.

One night I decided to make a bunch of due date icons and thought I'd share them here. No credit needed, but it would be cool to find out if someone takes any! (No, this does not mean I am pregnant.)

I need to get a sponsor for these things, so that winning results in an actual prizeā€”but for now, all these talented folks get is the recognition.

See who took the others here!

Don't blame me! An anonymous person wanted me to make a poll with the following questions. Some of these are rather controversial and while I welcome discussion, I do not want this to turn into a war. Be ye nice.

Tonight I wasted happily spent a lot of time making Jeeves and Wooster icons. Here they are for the taking. Please comment to let me know what you've saved; and credit is appreciated, but not necessary. And don't take the bally icon I'm using now. That would just be...not cool.

Hidey hidey hidey ho, sir. )

aftondays: (you've got mail (crimson rose))
All right, peoples, here they are! Thanks to moredetailsJessica and a couple of websites, you have twenty-five You've Got Mail icons to choose from (and that's twenty-five and twenty-five only; please don't snag my crimson rose icon, as I'm feeling very possessive over it right now). All I ask is that you comment to let me know what you've taken. Credit's always nice, but not necessary. Feel free to customize as you please. If you want bases of any of the text icons I'll be happy to oblige. Without further ado:

Where are my Tic Tacs?! )

I had a great time making these. I might make more in the future.

Oops! I accidentally omitted one of the valid entries. I'm so sorry! To rectify this mistake, I've added another poll. Please take a look at the new photo (last one in the album) and if you would like to vote for it, please go to the original poll and take away one of your votes. Then go to the new poll I've added and vote on it. Do not vote for a total of more than three pictures. That means if you want to vote for this one, you can only vote for two in the other poll. I'm very sorry about this mistake!


[Poll #723702]

It would be nice if those of you who have told your friends about this contest would also notify them of this new development!

aftondays: (insane)
Ahhhhh! Okay, again, the octopi are cute and funny and grodie and all that, but we are not doing write-ins on the photography contest. This is not a democracy, folks, sorry.

Seriously. It was amusing for a while but if I keep getting comments sent to me saying, "I vote for the octopi!" I think I might stomp off in a huff and ban from my journal all the people who say that. Or even delete the octopus pictures. And you don't want me to do that, do you? I didn't think so. For the last time: no write-ins!
aftondays: (chocolate)
It is time for you to vote for your favorite photographs of food. I'm pretty sure I haven't left anybody out; if I did, please let me know. Here are the guidelines:

1. Please view the pictures at their full size before voting. Often a thumbnail is not enough to tell you how good the photo is. There are two pages of pictures; make sure you look at all of them!

2.Vote for up to three pictures. I know it will be hard, since there are so many to choose from, but do your best! If you vote for more than three, I will ask you to fix it, and if you don't, your votes will be disqualified. This happened on the last contest and the results were changed because a few people didn't go back and change their votes.

3. You can vote for your own picture if you like.

4. The theme is food. I think all these photos have subjects that qualify as food, so there should be no problems here!

Voting will end sometime on Wednesday, May 10th. Winners will be announced and all the photographers revealed at some point not long after that. Check back here to keep track of how the votes are going and do spread the word!

VOTE HERE )

ETA: The baby octopus salad photo has been deleted, as have all the "write-in" comments from people who think it's funny to spam a stranger's journal. Most of the people who "voted" for this picture in response to [livejournal.com profile] jameth's call to spam my LJ have been banned from commenting here, as has [livejournal.com profile] jameth. Anyone else who leaves a comment trying to vote for "the write-in" or otherwise giving me grief over this will also be banned and any real votes they make disqualified.

ETA II: I accidentally omitted one of the valid entries. I'm so sorry! To rectify this mistake, I've added another poll. Please take a look at the new photo (last one in the album) and if you would like to vote for it, please go to the original poll and take away one of your votes. Then go to the new poll I've added and vote on it. Do not vote for a total of more than three pictures. I'm very sorry about this mistake!

I had so much fun with the last photo contest, I decided to host another one. I hope it's not too soon, but I am impatient!

The Rules )

The results are in! I had to disqualify a few votes (from people voting for more than three pictures) but the first and second places would have remained the same anyway. Congratulations to the winners!

Today is April 6th. I think I might have confused some people, because I am a goofball. So riddle me this, about the deadline for the photo contest.

Contest Rules

1. Pictures must be submitted by midnight (CST) on Thursday, April 6, 2006 to: aftondays @ gmail.com. Please include your LJ username in your e-mail.

2. The picture(s) you submit must have been taken by you. It doesn't matter when, so long as you were the one with the camera at the time. Limit two (2) contest entries per person.

3. The topic is What Makes You Smile. Obviously, this is a very subjective choice, which may make voting difficult, but it will allow you a lot of freedom with what you choose to photograph!

4. Photos must be a minimum of 400px and a maximum of 1000px on their longest side. I can resize pictures if you are unable.

5. No edits may be made to contest entries except as follows:

* You may change a color photo to black and white.

* You may crop.

* You may make color changes if your photo was in print and digitized with a scanner, so that the digital version matches the original print version.

All other edits will disqualify your photo(s). Obviously we're going on the honor system here as I can't check up on you. Just remember to keep it fair.

6. All may enter and are encouraged to do so, but I reserve the right to deny entry for any reason I see fit. If entry is denied, my reasons will be given to the entrant and a new photo may be submitted if it complies with these rules.

Please spread the word!
