I like to play around with paint programs every now and then. When I get in an artsy mood and can't find anything to create I like to make stuff for other people. It becomes my little escape. I've opened and closed this shop a couple of times already. You can read my EDIT logs in the spoiler directly below to keep up to date with that. My work is always improving but is never the best around here, haha. But with that said, I always try and do my best for you! There are some examples down below you can take a look at. Throw me a request if you like what you see!
EDIT: So as you can see, I've got some BLING! hehe. Yeah, I guess I like to add the bling. But hey, you know what?? If you don't want the glittery dazzles just lemme know. The more detail you give me about what you want the more I can help it become what you envision. If you don't want it to have a transparent background then just tell me. Or if you want your sig to be smaller (because some of mine are bigger than normal) please say so. Communicate to me peeps! <3
EDIT 4/30/2013 - So I am back trying out my artsy hand again. I am sorry the page looks unprofessional but I might spruce things up a bit soon. I realize I have no template for you to fill out, but I really just prefer for you to tell me in your own words what you want right now. It worked that way for me in the past and I hope it will work for me again. If you really wanted a template to fill out please express to me that it would have been easier on you, and I might consider making one available in the future if enough people help me become aware of this. To the three people which I never got around to making theirs, if you still want it made just let me know. Thanks!
EDIT 11/13/2013 - Woooo, Dust Bunnies! I am back again. Took another hiatus due to pregnancy, awww! I am sprucing the place up to be slightly more welcoming around here. I am still holding back on providing a template simply because I prefer to read what you write and get a good feel for where your mind is at, and I feel it sometimes creatively hinders me to abide by template guidelines. Still, this might change in the future. I believe there were 3 people I never got to finish their requests before I closed shop. If you still desire those graphics just let me know and I will stick you at the top of my priority. Feels good to be back :]
EDIT 11/23/2013 - Revamped the 'look' of the page and finally added some templates for you guys!!!
