Shaina-la

Greetings and salutations.

For those coming from the silver_icontest or one of the brush sites, welcome to the insanity!

I'm Shaina, and I'll be your host for this posting.

A little about myself: I'm 24, a libra, married for 5 years now, mother to a three year old and live in Texas.

Right now we are evacuated from our home and living in a hotel room thanks to Hurricane Rita.

I enjoy making graphics, love contests and I'm expanding my creative side into brushes.

I do run the Stars of the Silver Screen iContest (link to the left) and invite you all to go and visit it.

Lesse. My favorite flower is the lilac. My favorite color is blue. I'm a cat person (obviously).

I love my husband and my daughter and am very happy with them.

I'm into Broadway musicals, new country, some alternative and random others such as Metallica.

The only thing I really hate is rap.

I love to write. I've been working on a book for a while now, and plan to send it in once it's done and try to have it published.

I freelance as a web and graphic design artist, though when I have the time to go back to school I plan on taking courses in culinary education.

My favorite movie is the 10th Kingdom. I ran it so many times I broke the tape. I miss watching it.

My favorite music artist is Toby Keith.

I'm a gamer girl (not a girl gamer) and I play MMO's, AoM and AoE3. My favorite past time is spanking guy gamers who think they're 'the man,' and not in a good way.

That's all for right now, so I'll finally leave you to read the rest of the journal itself! Enjoy.



P.S. That little dragon up top is my husband's avatar Mokleab. He hordes his kitten.

Greetings from the flip side. [17 Apr 2006|11:47am]
Meh.

Yes, I'm back. What happened? Well, lots of FUN.

*note: sarcasm*

In any case, this tale starts with the Rita hurricane. That's when everything started going down hill. Fast forward to my computer blowing up. That was also loads of fun.

Rita apparently damaged our router, as well, which we had to wait a MONTH for the stupid cable company to replace, only .. it wasn't the right kind and we had to wait another few weeks for the right one to come along.

Yeah.

Which leads to a family member getting mono, my grandmother dieing and visits FROM the family fr--

You get the jist.

I'm sorry I haven't had the chance to pass along what was happening, but as you can see I had no internet connection for a while. I hope to pick up where I left off, and I'm pleased to find that so many people stuck around and cared enough to find out what happened.
7 Treats - Feed Me - Scratch - Memories

[10 Feb 2006|07:35am]
You know kids, I wish every mom
and dad would make a speech to their
teenagers and say kids, be free,
be whatever you are, do whatever you
want to do, just so long as you don't hurt anybody.
And remember kids,
I am your friend.

I would just like to say that it is my conviction
That longer hair and other flamboyant affectations
Of appearance are nothing more
Than the male's emergence from his drab camoflage
Into the gaudy plumage
Which is the birthright of his sex

There is a peculiar notion that elegant plumage
And fine feathers are not proper for the male
When actually
That is the way things are
In most species




Cookie for anyone who knows what show that's from ; )

Spri--- ... Winter Cleaning! [27 Dec 2005|07:44am]
Well, I've uberly cut down on the amount of contests I belong to.

Some because they're never on time, some because I just lost interest and others because I just wasn't happy with an element. Most of it was because I lost interest.

Whee. So, now I'm more comfortable with what I'm in and can relax. That also leaves more time for brushes/texture goodness, so if you ever have ideas or requests, let me know.

Will post the new icons tomorrow.
