All are so lovely!

You *made* them? And by extension, I assume ALL of your icons? Very impressive!

Aww, thanks! Hmmm ... I think about 10% of my icons are from other people.

I usually think of them rather like the mood theme thingies - I want specific icons for specific types of posts or comments - so I end up making them myself. I was already doing some similar little graphics for work - icons for the front page of the web site reminding people about, say, the Asian-Pacific Heritage Day presentation - so when I joined LJ, I started messing around with making my own almost immediately.

I didn't think of offering them around publicly until a couple of folks asked me if they could have the ones I was using myself. Now I'm happy to be able to make them for others - I'm running out of room for all the ones I think of making, and also they make such nice little pick-me-ups for when folks are having a bue day or week or whatever.

11 is beautiful, both the picture and the wording. <3
Also stealing 5 (which is adorable) and 1. All of them are very...autumn-ish (what, making up words is fun!)
Thanks for the lovely icons~ ^^

IIRC, #11's wording is from Shakespeare, although my more direct inspiration was the Sandman volume of that name. #5 ... are you an Ouran fan, or did Hunny just steal your heart all on his own?

Is it really? Do you have any idea which of Shakespeare's works it's from? And as for the Hunny question...a bit of both? ^^

Snagged #11 - too beautiful to resist!

Nice job on all of these, and LOL @ 13.

I'm happy you found one you liked! #13 was actually originally made for thewriter0, who was having a bad day and needed cheering up. I made her 2 Hakkai icons and let her pick one; she picked the other one ... .
