We used to be friends, a long time ago...

This journal is now Friends-Only. Sort of...

What I mean is that all my graphics or fandom related posts will remain public, but anything having to do with my personal life will be friends-only. So if you're only here for my art or to talk pop-culture, there's no need to friend me (Unless you want to, in which case, please do!).

However, if you're here because for some strange reason you think I'm cool, or interesting, or funny, or [insert descriptive word here], then please, leave a comment and let me know! If we share interests, or friends, and reading your journal doesn't make my brain hurt or make me want to hurl things at the monitor, then I will most likely add you. Don't be shy, I'm really not that bad. Just picky.

So please, if you want to be friended, or if you have a graphic request, then comment here. Try to be witty and/or interesting, and please be legible.

Yeah, sure. Gen seems to have good taste, most of the time, so why not?

Most of the time?! :P

Anyway, not the reason I was coming to post. Kristi, my love, I need an icon from the latest episode of House (2.12) that says something using "I hear bowling is more fun than stalking" - "But I'm better at this" 'cause I loved that. Two of my favorite pastimes :P .

Hey, thanks! Glad to see they're going to good use.

You seem interesting, and you're a BC girl, so I added you back. :)

i saw your comment to my post in houseicons and i thought i'd take you up on your offer to make me a layout for my lj. my favorite colors are hot pink and black and i have no idea what pics i want to use. (but i love house in his red shirt) I'm pretty much giving you free reign over it. i like the effect you used on your header, though. its purdy. thanks ahead of time. my email is razorblade_cherry@yahoo.com

*is in tears of happiness*

...okay, so now i sound like a weirdo stalker..but i'm not..it's just GREAT to see that someone used the word legible, and asked for non-migraine inducing journal entries. Not to mention all of the perfect icons. I'd buy you a gift for St. Pat's (the closest holiday)..but then we get back to the weirdo stalker thing. I think I'll shut up now. Hope you don't feel like hurling things at the screen :D

ciao, bravo, and ciao again

oh. p.s. do you happen to have any icons of one randomly hot Dr. Robert Chase (or Jesse Spencer)...feel free to put random words in there. i.e. sexy, hot, you know..generic yet true words that cross your mind when one sees him?! thanks so much! :D

(that's my attempt to bold and underline GREAT..but i've a.d.d.'d out of my friends' instructions on how to do that so many times..so if it didn't work..sorry)

Hi, I just saw that you were the maintainer for housegraphics. I wanted to let you know that you may have to change you layout there or something, because the header always covers the first post... Anyway, just giving you a heads up! --bemorechill (Oh, great icons by the way... Always nice.)
From:kwistina (Link)
Date: February 22nd, 2006 - 08:18 pm
Yeah, I know. Ever since LJ messed around with their coding, its been hooped. I don't really know how to fix it, so I'm going to just give the community a new layout altogether. It's time anyway...I'll probably do it this weekend.

But thanks for letting me know! Glad to see that some people are paying attention to the community!

Hello :)
I'm a member of your comm for god knows how long, and I have made a community : manipped. the aim is people to post their ANY fandom or fiction related manips, and since house graphics is a headquarter, I'd like to get your permission to promote manipped here.

Hope you to say yes,

I can't seem to think of anything witty to say at the moment, however, we seem to have a lot of interests in common and I would love to be added. :)
From:kwistina (Link)
Date: March 5th, 2006 - 06:59 pm
Haha, yeah, reading your journal didn't make my eyes bleed, so I've friended you. We do seem to have a lot of common interests, except for the whole House/Stacy thing. I'm a huge House/Cam'er. Aw well, House with anyone is still fucking hot.

Welcome to my life!
From:pinkdaze (Link)
Date: March 5th, 2006 - 07:47 pm
Yeah House/Stacy is my main ship, but I do dabble in House/Cameron so we should get along fine :)

Um, hi. Was checking your user icons.. and there's one icon you call "Cuz I can be evil..."... you said you didn't know who made it. I think lori311 made it. Not 100% sure, though.

(But maaan you have some fine Jon icons!)

Date: March 12th, 2006 - 10:44 pm
Hello, I'm commenting because I'd like to read your friends-only entries. I friended you because I love your icons and I think we have the potential to become good friends because we have the important stuff in common (i.e. House, Grey's, The Office).

I totally dig your art. I was browsing through your Gilmore Girls art. Gorgeous. I'm a L/L shipper...so when i saw your art, i was totally amazed.

We've got at least a few things in common.
CANADA,LAYOUT,HOUSE,Gilmore Girls, and a friend wench_for_hire.

I'd like to befriend you if it's okay.

Hey there!

I stumbled onto your journal tonight and you seem really cool. I also am a big fan of House and Bones. Adding you! Hope you
add me too. :D

I left a comment on your March 22nd entry (A TV show meme). I'm too lazy to copy and paste it in here, but you should go read it :P I was tired, and being tired is always an equation for at least slightly amusing comments...

Basically, the gist is that I borrowed two of your memes, so I figured I'd add you because you have cool memees and we watch similar shows, so yeah...lol

but go read the original comment :) lol...I may go and copy and paste it later tonight, lol.

Haha, I read it that same day, I'm just like you and am bad at commenting. But thanks for showing an interest in little ol' me! I did also notice that we're both BC'er, which makes for me adding you..lol
From:hartofsilver (Link)
Date: May 4th, 2006 - 08:58 am
so what DOES that icon say? :P
From:kwistina (Link)
Date: May 4th, 2006 - 08:25 pm
Which one, this one? I don't really remember, but I think it's something stupid like "House just wants her body" or something...my small print never makes sense.

hey there, i just wanted you to know that i added you. i think we share some interests (hugh, ... *g*) and if you like, please add me back!

Hi there =)

I commented in your latest graphic post, asking if I could friend you.

I'll post a similar request here, in case you did not see it over there.

 Can I be your friend?
House and the Colbert Report? This web page is every person's dream! Can I be your friend?

 Re: Can I be your friend?
Well, you don't seem to have anything written in your journal, so I don't know whether to add you or not, but feel free to add me! Welcome!
From:mourn_today (Link)
Date: July 22nd, 2006 - 06:58 pm
hey, I've seen your blends at the colbert_report (and now your LJ header) your stuff is amazing, and I thought I was getting good, but my stuff looks like crap after seeing yours...I mean, do you have certain texture sites you use or are you the #1 cropping expert in LJ?!
From:kwistina (Link)
Date: July 22nd, 2006 - 07:29 pm
HAHAH, no way man. There are soooo many people out there who are MUCH better than I am, but it makes me happy to think that I compare to them! Thank you!

I don't really have any certain techniques that I follow..I just read tutorials and then take a little bit from each one and play around and see what works! Basically you just play, try different things and decide what you like. Something you think looks like crap could be beautiful to someone else, but then something you think looks amazing could look like crap to other people. It's just about deciding what YOU like. Fuck everyone else..lol.

Oh, and never underestimate the power of COLOUR.
From:mourn_today (Link)
Date: July 22nd, 2006 - 08:45 pm
I know I started mooching bits and peices of Syndary's tutorials then effing around with textures and I dont know, everytime I try to cropp it looks like shit, but thatnks for the advice!
From:kwistina (Link)
Date: July 23rd, 2006 - 03:38 am
Actually, I looked at the icons you've posted in your journal and your cropping is pretty good! You might want to layoff some of the textures and maybe work with a bit more colour and saturation and contrast, but the cropping is pretty perfect.
From:mourn_today (Link)
Date: July 23rd, 2006 - 05:49 am
im working with PSP 6 I feel like my options ar limited. Do you have any links to some color/contrast links?
thanks for the compliments.

You seem like a really nice and cool person, so I think it'd be cool to get to know you. :D
Also, love your graphics. A lot. (I'm using that Hugh wallpaper you recently made; I love it to death ♥)
Add me back? :)
