Yeah. I made icons.  
My kids are sick. We can go nowhere without infecting the populace. In fact, I recommend that you wipe down your computer after IMing with me.

I got Corel Paint Shop Pro (which is ironic, because these are anything but professional.) I need more than the tutorial that I read online. I need a remedial tutorial. For trained chimpanzees who want to learn how to make icons.

Total Icon Count: 7 (And that took it all out of me.)

I feel:: blahblah

Ooh, pretty! And at least you tried! (And succeeded!) I've looked at a few icon tutorials and then just throw up my hands and surrender.

And grr... I missed yet another contest deadline. The next one, I swear, is the one for me. (Yeah, right...)

Everyone's healthy here, but the weather is not cooperating. I swear, before the end of this week, I will be poolside, in the sun, if it KILLS me. Or involves a plane ticket.

Off to take Becca to dance yet again. See you!

Your poor boys. All viral 'n stuff. :(

I hope y'all are better sooner than later - for your sanity if anything.

The icons are fantastic for a first try on a new program, dood! I especially like the 4th one down.

Hey, those are still pretty!

My idea of icon making at this point is to crop personal photos and just use those. So hey, go you! :D

I "use" Gimp. But I only use the crop and size function.
Maybe add a little text, that's it.

Those are very pretty.

I hope the kids get better soon. You seem to deal with sickness a lot better than I do. When they get really bad, I am calm outside, but practically do a headless chicken act inside. If that made any sense. :p

Woohoo for the icons. I can't make them at all.
