Post your favorite holiday-themed animated gif. One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]


My King Arthur icon that I've used for this post is my favorite though....I just picture the knights pushing Arthur to dress up as Ole St. Nick for them each year and hand out new swords and daggers.

Happy Friday!


No ranting from me today *laughs* I took today off from design work and wrote both the role play posts that I owed over on Fields of Innocence. I so dearly love that world and wish that I could escape to it forever.

Cold wintry weather here....sunny, but breezy and chilly! We had a very colorful sunset the other night, so I took a photo:

Both sasha_b and semmie17 had requested icons from Ringer (of Ioan Gruffudd), so I made a few of those and I made a couple of animations with a new tutorial that I'd found.



The rest........................Collapse )
Now I'll need to see to dinner and then probably get back to work. *laughs* My creativity was a bit stalled - so decided to see if I could make a few random graphics instead of trying to continue designing for clients.

Hope everyone is having a good week!

I took nearly 800 photos last weekend at the Carolina Renaissance Festival...but narrowed it down to 57 to share. I've got the album uploaded over at Avalon Graphics on Facebook: Album or Wall Post.

Had a great time and will likely go again in a few weeks! Huzzah!!

I've been busy with book trailers in recent weeks. Another one is now out today. This one for new author Jane Gray.

See it hereCollapse )
I am still working on Helen Hollick's Arthurian book jackets and trailer. Was hoping to have them all completed by this week, but we are struggling with a few design elements.

I had a busy weekend helping with a major project at home, so I have a huge backlog of emails since I was away from the computer *gasps* for much of the past three days. I have two new clients as well. Just sent off a contract this morning for a travel book trilogy that I will begin working on at the end of the month. And Knox Robinson Publishers plan to release six titles in December, so I have all of those to design by November 1st. I continue to be busy.....that is for sure. *laughs*

Oh and author Sandra Byrd was kind enough to send me a copy of her book To Die For (A Novel of Anne Boleyn) which looks very good. She may hire me down the road to produce a book trailer for her as well. I hope so!

I'm still dealing with a nasty cough and not been sleeping well either. I think I need a full day off to just rest....but with all the work on my schedule, I feel like I cannot do that. Help? *laughs*

I hope all of you are doing well. Miss you guys!

Because I had writer's block today....I turned to graphics this afternoon for a little outlet and break from work.

If this be our destiny......Collapse )

I hope to do some writing for my role plays next week. And while I have several design projects completed or nearly done, none have been released to the public yet. But as soon as they are released, I'll have much to share!

Have a great weekend all!

My principle client (and great friend) Helen Hollick had invited me to do a guest entry in her Blog and that was posted today!

Read it here: My Guests

You might learn a few things about me that you did not already know ;) And please leave comments!!!



I'm putting the finishing touches on Lumina Music and I am currently working on re-designing Helen's The Kingmaking cover. And I have several other projects on-going as well. So I'd best get to it!

Thank you to all of you who have supported my design career over the years....it has meant the world to me. ♥♥♥

I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean 4 on Saturday night...it entertained me, but didn't 'wow' me.

I have yet to watch a replay of the Royal Wedding, will do that shortly....but first up I want to show off my latest book cover design! Helen Hollick's publisher, SilverWood Books, released it today - Harold the King is a brilliant book and takes place around 1066 when Westminster was originally constructed, so how fitting to release the book today while a Royal wedding took place in that very same abbey! Helen wrote about the origins of the Abbey in her blog HERE.

See the book cover
under hereCollapse )

On a personal note, today is my husband's birthday so I'll likely not be online much at all. And I want to go watch replays of the Royal wedding...I love such things - guilty pleasure!  I wish all of you a very lovely weekend!!

My thought are with sasha_b  ♥♥

I'll have a new book cover design to unveil on Friday! I've given UK author Helen Hollick a new design for her Harold the King novel to be re-released in June by a new publisher. Very excited about this one!
