"Since there's no place to go . . . . "
Let's see, what did I take. 20, 38, 67, 70 and 98, then I spotted another one that I like whilst scrolling down to comment! O.O

I like the contrast of the snowflake on black, very pretty. Such an appropriate and perfect post. Thank you very much for these and for being a such a wonderful person to get to know this last year. Merry Christmas Idol Hands. XD

Re: "Since there's no place to go . . . . "
I know it must be like, "Idol Hands, geez you keep makin' icons!" But I can't help it! I find so many things inspirational and these images in particular was just plain beautiful, and of course, it's the right time of year for it!

I thoroughly enjoy enjoy seeing which ones caught your fancy, since my tastes are broad and thought also goes into what others might like outside of my own preferences. Of course this is all for fun, however I was raised with the, "If you're going to do something..." mentality.

I could say the exact same thing about you. Having anyone put up with my nonsense and even more, appreciate the odd way that I look at things, as well as care a wit about myself, is the best gift in life that there is. Thank you and I only wish that I could do more.

First, #8. To be honest, I had a pullover with a pattern similar to this one when I was a child, I swear. And #99. I love the contrast but also the out of focus. It's something which fascinates me without any reason in photography and cinema.
It's such a great theme for Winter and Christmas. :)
Thank you, and will credit, naturally.

(Well, nothing to do with snowflakes, winter, Christmas, cold, science, etc, but for "Is It Scary". I didn't abandon it, but well, if you have one specific part in your story you really like, tell me and I'll try to do something with it. Or I'll concentrate on the first Chapter, first Volume. ;) )

He, he. I never expected to read that, but I can see it now in my mind's eye. I bet you were adorable.

I know what you mean about that and I only subtly enhanced the photograph in respect. My guess is that it creates a magical and memory-like effect.

Ach, it's really hard for me to think of that, although it's a fair question. I always like seeing what grabs the reader's mind -- despite the distinct images that lay in my own -- it's rather like unwrapping a gift. The first one would be really nice though, because it's something that I really ought to get back to. ;)

So much to create, so little time!!

Hi lady!!!!!
How are things with you?
These are gorgeous!
I snagged LOTS of them and will certainly credit!

What have you been up to recently? I've been out of touch because I'm running around crazy with this second job at the bookstore. I'm completely non-verbal by the time I get home. LOL

Oh, and I wanted to tell you how much I LOVE that you use your screenname in the file names....it makes my life so much easier, since I have a bad habit of not renaming immediately and then having to go search for who made which icon.

Let's hear it for being a complete nutter!
People have this very funny habit of assuming my gender, but I really don't mind what I'm referred to as. *smiles* I'm a tad drunk, atm. ;) I certainly don't ever take anything as an insult.

I've been up to having a good time and trying to make peace with myself; I enjoy this hoiday season and good friends make it even nicer. You're kind to offer an explanation, I do enjoy your company when you can offer it and most certainly understand your predicament!

*glomps back*

Thank you for saying that, it is an extra step and while it would be unseemly to complain (to my mind), the entire process is time-consuming. Thank you so much for stopping by and finding time to offer positive feedback.

Believe it or not, I'm working on a second batch, just can't keep my nerdly appreciations to small batches it seems. Then I'll be up to proper pimping of this post. *jazzing to Christmas music*

I rely on such feedback to justify my madness. Thank you. My mutual gratitude to nature and the peculiar human ability to appreciate it in such ways.

pretty pretties...any reason why you started making icons?
☆: ❄theidolhands on December 23rd, 2009 06:17 am (UTC)
I finally figured out how to do it and there was a certain dynamic of subjects that seemed unexplored despite my personal passion for them. Also, it's fun! when it's not driving me crazy.

Thank you so much for the compliment. ;)

Although I really enjoy both sets of icons you've posted, I truly love your title and subtitle for your page - vereh nice indeed.

Sorry to be nosy, but did you come up with yourself or get it from someplace else?

(BTW: My favs are #s 17 & 42 - just to keep it on track a little bit, ne? ;) )
☆: ❄theidolhands on December 23rd, 2009 07:55 am (UTC)
*chuckles* Oh no, it's OK, it's mine and it's true; a paraphrase of things said directly or put into "files."

I don't think I'm actually crazy at all, but as a child I was put through a battery of tests by professionals because frankly (as one may note)...I'm just that weird, and well, that's just not allowed is it?

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and allow for direct feedback. Awesome icon too!

these are so awesome.

And very cool for saying so. There is so much beauty in something so simple and seemingly common; it's a pleasure to share it in a way that others can see it too. ;)
Laelia: snowflake_real2laeliacatt on December 23rd, 2009 03:48 pm (UTC)
Snagged a couple of these and I always credit. The delicate colors of many of them are just as lovely as the shapes. Snowflakes are such gorgeous, interesting things. Happy Holidays! :)
☆: ❄theidolhands on December 23rd, 2009 09:18 pm (UTC)
I'm extra pleased to meet someone who likes subtle coloring as I do. Yes, I believe there are tiny miracles all around us if we simply look close enough and even that ability....to see them...is miraculous.

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.
Have a blessed holiday season!

Oh, those are so cool! Not taking any right now, but I'm bookmarking for future reference. :)
☆: ❄theidolhands on December 23rd, 2009 09:13 pm (UTC)
Certainly and thank you for saying so. I know I've got files and files worth of icons that I can't use at the moment. ^^
