Banner Hiatus

24 Apr

So it’s that time of year again – exam time *boooo* I’m currently spending all my waking hours – when not at the gym – revising (except for now when I’m writing this blog post). Also, why is it that when you have much more important things to be doing, suddenly everything else – and I do mean everything – is like a bajillion times more interesting than whatever it is you’re supposed to be doing?

Anyway.

I’m no longer taking banner requests. I’ve had some emails and some messages, so I thought I’d but it out here. My life is stressful enough without thinking about making something that other people would like, plus it’s too much of a distraction for me to spend hours and hours of unnecessary time on a banner (that would usually take 30 mins – 1 hour) simply because I don’t want to revise anymore!

Come June, I’ll be back up and running. Until then, check out FicPics.com, they have some amazing banner makers.

Also, here’s some I made in the last 4 months.

Got another banner request :D

Summary: Bella joins a band, only expecting it to be just an extracurricular activity. What happens when Breaking Twilight is discovered and Bella, Edward, Jake, Jazz, and Emmett are thrust into the limelight? Will the fame go to their heads and break them apart, or will they be able to play it cool and always keep their feet on the ground?

Pretty proud of myself for this one, I like the way I’ve managed to make the characters stand out. Considering I haven’t been making many banners lately, I think I’m getting back into it :D

Some New Banners

10 Dec

University has been insane! I can’t even remember how many assignments I’ve had to do, but I know I have four for over Christmas, plus revising, plus learning about 25 of the top 50 prescribed drugs. Insane.

I’ve managed some time for writing though, which is nice. Got Vicarious posted on fanfiction and I’ve taken over the writing of Between the Shadow and the Soul by Bedelia. But had to put a cap in beta-ing except for my friends for the time being. I’ve had very little time or inclination for banner making, but I’m getting back into it :)

These are the few I’ve made in the last couple of months :)

Craziest Summer Ever

28 Sep

Considering I didn’t do anything…outlandish over the summer, it hasn’t half been mental.

It started with doing my resit exams in May, getting the results in June and finding out that I’d passed one (yay!) but failed the other (boo!). I then resat it (again, and for the last time) the day before I went on holiday to spend two weeks in Florida. Half way through the holiday I found out that I’d passed my exam (yay!) and I could finally relax.

I spent the next 12 weeks, working occasionally, spending time with my boyfriend, making banners, knitting and just generally relaxing – properly – for the first time in 3 years. I went on a three day trip to London, saw Phantom of the Opera and met up with lots of wonderful fandom friends!

Then, on the Tuesday after I came back from London, my boyfriend, Rob, who I’d been with for just over five years, proposed!

I couldn’t have been happier, seriously. I couldn’t stop smiling, I cried when he asked me, I was just insanely happy.

However, the following day, a man who had always been like an Uncle to me (my mum’s cousins husband), killed himself. All of a sudden everything happy was gone. I couldn’t stop thinking about his daughter, my age, who had found him, about his wife who was left behind. I wanted to be happy, I should have been happy, and yet I couldn’t be. I felt bad about being happy.

The funeral came and went, life moved on.

Then the night came when my family had to meet Rob’s family for the first time, properly. For a sit down meal. It went splendidly  

However, that same night Rob’s great-nana died.

The funeral was the day we were supposed to go away for a week in Somerset (a sort of engagement honeymoon, if you will). We went, but the drive was fraught for Rob.

But now I’m back at University, where life is attempting to get back to normal.

But Christ’s sake, it’s been one hell of a summer.

New Banners

Haven’t been too busy with banners since I came back off my jollies. I’m very glad of that, however, as I’ve recently gotten engaged and my uncle killed himself (within two days no less). So yes, life has been a little bit hectic.

I have had time for the FicPics banner wars! Don’t think I’ll be continuing for the whole month, but certainly for a couple of weeks, and if I managed to make quite a few adoption banners out of it, the better :).

My banner form has been getting pretty decent traffic :) These are what I’ve made since I came back off my holiday. So that’s like a banner a week, which is just about perfect for me :D
