Update: User Info & the journal layout.  
Recently, (five minutes ago in one case, some weeks for another), I updated the user info for this journal.

It now reflects where you can find the very awesome icons that I use to accompany the stories I write. It has, presently, the two icon-makers whom I primarily use - emiv of sweet__tea and houseoficons; I listed them since their icons are ones that I use continually and would like to give kudos to these two very talented artists and their extremely kind permission for myself to comment in their community and journal (respectively) as my personal journal and to use the icons here as well.

Thank you both, very much.

If anyone would like to see more of their work, follow the links provided in the user info, or visit sweet__tea or houseoficons. sweet__tea is a moderated members only community, so there might be a short wait on being able to see the icons and other graphics (check the community for what that's like) but it's well worth whatever wait there is.

Also, I'll give a heads' up as well - don't hotlink and it's always good to give credit. Not every icon-maker on LJ will ask that you credit, but it's nice to do so. Crediting is sometimes in keywords and comments, or sometimes just the comments on your user pics. I tend to, for this journal, use both keywords and the comments - that way, I have a clearer idea of what icon I'm using when posting a story and it indicates to anyone checking my user pictures just who made what and where to go.

I've also fiddled with the journal layout - the sidebar with the calendar is gone. It felt as though it were cluttering up the journal and detracting, a little from the work that was being posted here. Ludicrous, I can hear some people say, but, it's how I felt. If you'd like to see the sidebar with the calendar returned, as I know some people do tend to use that as a way to read the stories that are posted here, I can return it. I don't mind.

You are all kinds of awesome.

You are also extremely welcome, and you do not know how flattered I am that you enjoy my graphics. Remember, if you ever need an icon in particular, for a story or otherwise, feel free to ask me any time!

Also, awesome advice on crediting, not enough people know how to credit correctly.

Re: *blushes*
This is the second time today you've caused me to blush! It's a new record.

Sincerely, you are welcome; I really enjoy your graphics and I can think of no one whom, besides yourself and houseoficons, I would prefer to use so often on this journal. And I will ask! I wrote that on a post-it note, actually, to try and remember, between stories. On a slight sidenote, your latest batch of icons has inspired an tPM story - possibly with R2 as the hero!

Also, awesome advice on crediting, not enough people know how to credit correctly.
Thank you - I tend to doublecheck with the various people I speak to about icons with regard to crediting and the advice stems from all those chats.
