Yuletide Icons 2009

This year's Yuletide icons ... a month earlier than last year! As usual, there are icons on the general themes of winter and gifts as well as book illustrations and covers. This year, I even have a few TV shows thrown in!

All the usual caveats apply: don't hotlink (please save my bandwidth!), download 'em to your own system, please credit as appropriate.

OMG a Moomin icon! I love it.
Oct. 27th, 2009 11:59 pm (UTC)

I'm glad it made you happy!

Oct. 27th, 2009 11:46 am (UTC)
I really love the icons. I took 3, 17, 24, 33, 35, and 36. Thanks.
Oct. 28th, 2009 12:00 am (UTC)

I'm so happy you liked them!

Oct. 27th, 2009 11:47 am (UTC)

I take my hat off to all of you wonderful icon makers these are so beautiful i love every last one of them.
Oct. 28th, 2009 12:04 am (UTC)

Aww, thanks, 'vida! Does this mean you're doing the Yuletide fic exchange this year, or did you just notice this on f-list?

Oct. 27th, 2009 12:52 pm (UTC)
snagged Kermit, but they're all quite lovely!
Oct. 28th, 2009 12:27 am (UTC)

I was quite happy to find Kermit in a parka! I'm glad you like them!

Oct. 27th, 2009 01:00 pm (UTC)
OMG DEATH. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. Possibly I will take more, but 25!!!!! YAY.
Oct. 28th, 2009 12:28 am (UTC)

Hee, I was happy to find a large enough image of that! I'm pleased you like them!

Oct. 27th, 2009 01:06 pm (UTC)
I took the Hogfather, will credit. My absolute favourite discworld character is Death. It get the funniest looks when I tell people that..
Oct. 28th, 2009 12:29 am (UTC)

I'm fond of him as well, and also Gaiman's Death. Someone needs to write a crossover!

Oct. 27th, 2009 01:07 pm (UTC)
I totally love the Kermit, Calvin & Hobbes, Nutcracker Ballet (have you attributed that? I must have missed it in the list)Moomintroll ones, as well as Nr. 11, Nr. 5 and Nr. 45.
Oct. 28th, 2009 12:32 am (UTC)

Arrrgh, I was trying to remember/rediscover the ballet company site from which I got that Nutcracker pic! So no, I hadn't attributed it because I hoped to get a more compete credit.

>hangs head in shame<

I'm glad you found some you liked!

Oct. 27th, 2009 01:40 pm (UTC)
Heeee! I took n. 3. They're all gorgeous, though!
Oct. 28th, 2009 11:24 am (UTC)

That Brett bear is proving quite popular ... I'm glad you enjoyed the icons!

Oct. 27th, 2009 01:50 pm (UTC)
I needed #21. :) Snagging, and thank you!
Oct. 28th, 2009 11:25 am (UTC)

I have a feeling that quite a few people will need him before Yuletide is over ... XD ... and you're quite welcome!

Oct. 27th, 2009 03:02 pm (UTC)
These are gorgeous!
Oct. 28th, 2009 11:27 am (UTC)

Awww, I'm so glad you like them! (I enjoyed your tropical takes as well!)

Oct. 27th, 2009 03:28 pm (UTC)
These are lovely! And OMG Snowy Day!!! I'm going to snag that one, and the Calvin & Hobbes. Um. So many of these are so tempty!

And I love the Moomin one, too!
Oct. 28th, 2009 11:29 am (UTC)

We aim to please! And nothing warms my heart like seeing these scattered about the Yuletide comms.

(The odd thing is that effort doesn't necessarily reflect response. The Moomin pair were terribly easy to make because the line is so simple and I didn't need to edit much at all.)

These are all adorable, it's hard to choose only one of them.

Taking 40, will credit when used.
Oct. 28th, 2009 11:31 am (UTC)

Well, you really can take more than one, if you like ... thanks for the kind words!

Oct. 27th, 2009 03:36 pm (UTC)
Moomintroll! *steals number 34 and goes to upload with credit*
Oct. 28th, 2009 11:33 am (UTC)

I was quite excited to find workable Moomin art!

Oct. 27th, 2009 03:39 pm (UTC)
These are adorable!
Oct. 28th, 2009 11:34 am (UTC)

Aww, thank you!

Oct. 27th, 2009 05:33 pm (UTC)
These are all lovely! And I'd been thinking about trying to make a Snowy Day icon and you saved me the trouble. Taking 31, 36, and 41. Thanks!
Oct. 28th, 2009 11:38 am (UTC)

Peter's adventures were a big part of my daughter's early childhood (we also had Whistle for Willie and Peter's Chair). I'm so pleased that you liked them!

Oct. 28th, 2009 11:39 am (UTC)

I'm glad you liked them! Thanks for stopping by!

Oct. 27th, 2009 08:41 pm (UTC)
These are such fun. I nabbed #27 because - well, it just goes with everything. And the moomin because *omg cute* although I will never write moominfic.
Oct. 28th, 2009 11:42 am (UTC)

I had to edit the fire in that one a bit to make it fit in a square layout ... I'm so happy you liked it! (And yes, moomins are quite adorable!)

Oct. 27th, 2009 10:30 pm (UTC)
Yea!! Yuletide icons!
Oct. 28th, 2009 11:43 am (UTC)

LOL! You know these are for a fiction-writing exchange, right, Resa-ji?

Oct. 28th, 2009 11:45 am (UTC)

I was pleased to find that pic .... you're very welcome! Enjoy!

Oct. 28th, 2009 12:18 am (UTC)
I made off with the adorable 10 :)
Oct. 28th, 2009 11:48 am (UTC)

That mouse pic showed up in someone's blog, but they didn't have any info about where it was from - it didn't seem to be the blogger's own work. But it was too cute to pass up!

Oct. 28th, 2009 01:23 am (UTC)
These are great! I took # 9 & #39. Thank you!
Oct. 28th, 2009 11:50 am (UTC)

Shtinky Pie writing is from a packet of Mutts stationary! I'm glad you found some you liked!

Oct. 28th, 2009 01:53 am (UTC)

Oct. 28th, 2009 11:51 am (UTC)

I'm in the middle of a bunch of writing myself ... is it 393?

Oct. 28th, 2009 02:37 am (UTC)
Aww, might have to use the Kermit one. Thanks!
Oct. 28th, 2009 11:54 am (UTC)


I'm so glad you found one you liked!

Oct. 28th, 2009 03:32 am (UTC)
10 was too cute for me to resist. Thanks!
Oct. 28th, 2009 12:00 pm (UTC)

I'm glad it made you happy! But jinx, does this mean you're participating in the Yuletide fic exchage?

(If it's just that you like the icons, you might also want to check out the autumn icons I made last year.)
