Christmas wallpaper and stationery pages done, lots of new stuff, new December Desktop Calendars

Hi everyone, I have finished my Christmas Stationery and Christmas Wallpaper pages. I have made many new ones since the last time I posted. Go check them out!
I also have a new December Desktop Calendar for each new wallpaper I made. It's possible I may make another Christmas set or two (stationery and wallpaper) but I'm not sure at the moment.
What a huge job that was!
I already have my New Year pages done (unless I make more New Year stuff), so I'll be working on the Valentine pages next I guess!
All of the new items are on the New Stationery and New Wallpaper pages as well.
Now I'm off to watch the finale of Survivor. I have Holly in a Survivor pool and I'm surprised she made it this long but grateful! When she buried Dan's $1600 shoes at the beginning, I thought she was done for (what kind of idiot brings $1600 shoes to the jungle anyway LOL).
Have a great night everyone!
Hugs, Ellie

I've also added 2 new wallpapers to the Christmas Wallpaper page that are also on the New Wallpaper page.
I've got 2 more December Desktop Calendars up and 1 new January Desktop Calendar.
All of the new wallpaper and calendars are in jpg and png formats.
Working hard here for you all!
I'm making stationery to match the new Christmas wallpaper tomorrow, ran out of time today!
Have a great night everyone!

Christmas Stationery page uploaded, lots of new stationery

I have my Christmas Stationery page up. If the stationery was significantly redone or new, they're also on the New Stationery page. At the bottom of the Christmas Stationery page I have some old stationery that I know people still like and use but I won't be redoing them or adding them in different formats. All of the older ones are in Incredimail and Outlook Express formats, and the newer ones are also in eml format.
Can't believe I'm getting my site back into shape, it's been a long, long time and so much hard work and so much more to do!
Take care, Hugs, Ellie

Christmas wallpaper page up, more December calendars, Wallpaper Tutorial up

December 14, 2010 My Christmas Wallpaper page is up. Some of the ones that are either new or completely redone have already been put on the New Wallpaper page as well as on the Christmas Page. Some of the ones that are kind of old and I don't want to redo and make into the other sizes are at the bottom of the page. Not all of the wallpapers on the Christmas page are on the New Wallpaper page.
I also just added another format. I've always been unhappy with the jpg format, especially for reds, it leaves what's called artifacts in the red (kind of like streaks and wave patterns). I just did some research and found out that you can use png files for wallpaper. Png files are so much nicer than jpg files. WinXP supports it natively and Windows Vista and Windows 7 doesn't, but there are workarounds. For those wallpapers in png format, I've provided both jpg and png. I've currently just got some png format on the Christmas page and only those with a significant amount of red in them. From now on, I'll make the wallpaper in both formats.
I've put my Wallpaper Tutorial on a page on it's own instead of on the Wallpaper Index page now, and it explains how to use and set wallpaper, including pngs, and links to some free third party programs that help set and cycle wallpaper and control your desktop icons as well. Note: this tutorial is not HOW to make wallpaper but how to use it.
I also have more December Desktop Calendars up. Wow you have a lot to choose from this month. Don't get spoiled now, it's only because I'm working on the wallpaper pages and making a desktop calendar for each one as I go along. I save them as layered templates so they can be reused another time, something I wish I'd done from the start, especially on reworking all of that old wallpaper, and having to redo things from scratch!
I also just redid the What's New page as I was tired of the old one. I was going to make it look like a blog but I kind of like this for now. I hope to start adding links in the two sidebars for my favorite sites, etc.
Now it's time to put together my Christmas stationery and get that page done. Cutting it close! I can't believe that Christmas is less than 2 weeks away!
Have a great day everyone!
Hugs, Ellie

More Desktop Calendars and more new wallpaper

I have a few more Desktop Calendars up for December, including one for my overseas friends that are now in their Springtime. Just thought of it today and got right on it!
I also have a few more New Wallpapers up.
Working on my Christmas pages for Wallpaper and Stationery and hope to have it done in a day or two. Keeping fingers crossed!
Have a great night-day-afternoon-morning-evening, wherever you are!

Finally! I've got my Winter Stationery page and my Winter Wallpaper page done and uploaded with many new and revised items. The new ones are also on the New Stationery page and the New Wallpaper page.
I hope you find something you like! On to my Christmas pages next!
Have a great day! I know I will now that I have that done!

More December calendars, 2 calendars needed to be replaced and 2 January Calendars

I've added more Desktop Calendars and will have the Winter Wallpaper page ready to upload in a day or two (I'll post here when I do that).
If you've downloaded 2 of my December Desktop Calendars, Holiday Memories or First Snow, go back and get them again, ok? I reuse templates for the calendar grid and while I remembered to change it to December 2010, I forgot to change the numbers to the right places. Probably hubby's fault. It always is, distracting me when I'm trying to focus. LOL
I also have two January 2011 calendars up. Decided you all had enough December ones to choose from!
Have a great night!
Hugs, Ellie

More Desktop Calendars added

Keep an eye on my Desktop Calendars page as I am adding more calendars to it as I'm redoing my Winter Wallpaper page. I've added a few more in the last few days.
As soon as I am done with it, I'll be reuploading my Winter Wallpaper page.
I'll notify you here when I do.
Have a great day! Hugs, Ellie

December Desktop Calendars up and reuploaded a tutorial

Hi everyone. I've been hard at work and have 6 December Desktop Calendars available so far and I've also reuploaded one of my translations, Jetje's Tutorial called Winter Greeting.
I've injured my back and it's slow going but I'm getting it done a bit at a time.
I hope you enjoy what I've got so far!

New Thanksgiving Stationery and one Autumn one

I've just added the Thanksgiving Stationery section back with all new stationery. None of the old stuff was worth redoing and adding back in. They are on the Thanksgiving Stationery page and the New Stationery page. There is one new Autumn stationery on the New Stationery page as well. They are all in Incredimail, Outlook Express and eml formats.
I know my stationery is taking much longer than I expected to get back up again and for that I apologize. The job just seems overwhelming to me sometimes. I have to check the copyright of each stationery, redo the graphic most of the time adding copyrights, etc. Then I have to make it into wallpaper, incredimail stationery and from there convert it to Outlook Express Stationery and email format stationery. Upload all of the files then redo the webpages and upload them. Sometimes it just seems like more work than I can handle but I'm doing it as I can.
Again, I apologize for the delay. I've received many emails asking about the stationery so I know many of you are missing it. Any new stationery I make goes on the New Stationery page and is staying there for now. When I get the other pages redone and uploaded again, the new stuff will get sorted out into those categories again.

November desktop calendars, new wallpaper, Thanksgiving wallpaper section online

I've just added 7 November desktop calendars, added 4 new wallpapers to the New Wallpaper page and have the Thanksgiving wallpaper page back online, with all new wallpaper because they weren't all copyright compliant and I didn't like them well enough to redo them.
I hope to get more done tomorrow but you know how that goes, can't count on the creative streak being there when I get up!
Have a great night!

new October Desktop Calendars, new Autumn Desktop Wallpaper

I seem to post in streaks don't I? LOL
I have some new Desktop Calendars up for October. I did have some October calendars up but just added 5 more. I am also now starting to make desktop calendars and wallpaper in a larger size again, making it 4 sizes I make them in. I just got a 24" LED monitor and it's resolution is 1920X1080 so that's the new size. The large wide screen I made before of 1680X1050 works just fine though if you use the stretch function of your wallpaper loader and it looks perfectly ok.
I've also added one new wallpaper with an Autumn theme go the New Wallpaper page.
Our last camping trip of the season is next week and I'll have lots more time on my hands to get the rest of my site fixed and uploaded and updated. I do hope to make a few more Halloween desktop calendars and wallpaper and also some more Autumn and Thanksgiving wallpaper.
I'll let you know when that's done.
Have a great weekend!

20 new stationeries, most are summer, 2 are back-to-school

Hi everyone. I've been hard at work on the stationery and just added 20 new ones to the New Stationery page. 2 of them are School related and all but one of the rest are Summer, the last one is Summer but also Fantasy and saves in the Fantasy stationery folder.
I've added a Back-to-school wallpaper page and a Back-to-school stationery page.
I've also added the Summer page to the stationery section, most but not all of them are on the New Stationery page.
Whew, now I need to watch some TV and read a book to wind down. Have a great night!

Saturday, August 14, 2010

More new wallpaper and August desktop calendars

I've added more wallpaper to the Summer section (some of them are on the New Wallpaper page as well) and another couple of August Desktop Calendars. I'm getting punch drunk!! And my butt is sore. LOL
As I am working with all of these new tags I'm making them all into stationery and wallpaper and some into calendars, so once I'm done working with all of my summer tags made over the last 2 years, I'll start converting the stationery into OE and EML stats, making the thumbnails and uploading them.

I've been working hard again. I've redone all of the wallpaper in the Summer section, some of them are pretty well brand new as I've had to replace images in some. Go take a look!

Find the new items here: Desktop Calendars and New Wallpaper.
I hope to get a lot of stationery done tomorrow, it's been awhile since I've got any stationery done. I want to update and upload the Summer pages for both the wallpaper and stationery. I'll keep you posted.
Have a great night!

August Desktop calendars and some new wallpaper uploaded

10 AM:Hi everyone. Busy summer for me so I’m not around much. Camping a lot!
Anyway, I’ve just uploaded 5 August Desktop Calendars and 5 new desktop wallpapers on the New Wallpaper page. Go take a look! I’m hoping to make a 6th one today if I have time, I have to go grocery shopping in a few minutes.
Contrary to popular opinion, not all women love to shop. I hate it! I like my 4 walls and computer, books, TV. I’m a genuine home-body. I can take the camping because I bring my home with me (and my computers and books!).
I’ll post if I put up a 6th calendar and wallpaper.
6PM: I just finished a 6th wallpaper and desktop calendar. Another one with some adorable fairies!
Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Ellie

Many translated tag tutorials and translated frame tutorials back online

Hi everyone:
I've added many translated tag tutorials back.
If you go to the Translated Tag Tutorials index page you'll see the top rows are done.
This means I have finished and uploaded all of Futura's, Duchessa's, Marijke's and Marian's tutorials.
The ones below Marian's, starting at Miss Daisy's, are not done yet.
I've also finished all of the Translated Frames tutorials as well as many of my own, as outlined on the Tutorials Index page.
I am soooo weary, my brain is hurtin'.
I can't do another thing tonight.
Off to watch some TV and read.
Have a great night everyone!
Hugs, Ellie

Many tutorials back online

Hi everyone. I've just uploaded all of the Basic tutorials section, the Animated tutorials and the Image Creation tutorials. These are tutorials for all of the programs I write for, PSP, Photoshop-Photoshop Elements, PhotoImpact and GimpShop. I hope to get started on the translated tutorials tomorrow, many of them can go back online with a minimum of editing. 
Tutorial index is here:
We were supposed to be camping this week but John canceled as he thought it would be too hot for myself and the kitty. So I got started on these tutorials first thing this morning and have been working on them all day. Have a great evening!

July Calendars up, as well as a new wallpaper

First of all, Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians. I hope you're having a great day! I have my July Desktop Calendars up and also one new wallpaper on the New Wallpaper page. I also have my July 4th Wallpaper page uploaded.
 I'm sorry the tutorial uploads are so slow. I wasn't able to type for awhile, I had sprained a finger on my left hand and had to wear a wrist brace on the right for awhile so typing was out of the question. I have almost all of the background tutorials uploaded and all but one of the Basics tutorials. Once my wrists and hands heal up properly I'll be able to get the rest of them done more quickly. Summer is a busy time for me with going camping at least once every month but I promise I'll get to them as quickly as possible. I am itching to start writing new tutorials as well, so once I get the website whipped back into shape I want to get started on that. It's just all taking longer than I thought it would.
 Some of you may have noticed my Blogspot blog was gone for a bit, Google had deleted it as I was swept up in a sweep where a "fuzzy filter" had pegged it as spam. I wrote to them and after about 2 weeks they apologized and put it back online. In the meantime I had opened a Wordpress blog which is attached to my own site. I think I'll keep both blogs, if something happens to one, then I still have the other one to fall back on. So on my main pages you will see buttons for both blogs, they will have identical information, as does the What's New page, I put the same info on all of them. Have a great day everyone!

Site move completed

I've got all of the site re-uploaded that I had done before today. So while there are still some links that don't work, due to my editing them before uploading, all of the sections are working now that were working yesterday. If you bookmarked the new fonts and stationery sections in the last couple of weeks, they will go back to using the same addresses as before. So you'll need to head to my home page and follow the links from there to bookmark them again.
Tomorrow I'll go back to editing and uploading the tutorials. It was a lot of work today but I'm so glad I did it.
Have a great evening!
Hugs, Ellie

Site moving again

Well, I'm making another move. I was having so much trouble with those free hosts that my site was spread across that I decided to go back to a paid host. I went with SuperGreen Hosting after doing a lot of research. They have a sterling reputation from what I've seen and so far, just this morning, I've had a few questions and got an immediate response via email with an offer of further help if needed. The site address will remain the same as I own the domain.
I've been uploading and the speeds are super fast. I'm very impressed! The only addresses that will change will be the Stationery and the Font sections, as they were on a host apart from my main site I had to change the address. They will now go back to the same address they had before.
Once I get all of this uploaded again, I'll be back to the same spot I was before today as I'm still updating my Tutorial, Wallpaper and Stationery sections for copyright content. I'll let you know when I get this all uploaded today. And then I'll go back to editing those sections and adding them to the site as I get them done. I'm working on the tutorials section, Background Tutorials at the moment (once I'm done this uploading) and I have most of those Background Tutorials done.
Thanks for being patient with me!

June desktop calendar up, some desktop wallpaper, and some tutorials

Hi everyone. I hope you're having a nice weekend? 
 I've just finished the June desktop calendars, I have 8 for you to choose from, 4 with graphics on them and 4 just the textured background and the calendar. I also have 11 new desktop wallpapers for you.
 I have been quiet lately but that's because I'm working on editing all of my tutorials and getting them back online. I'm working on the Background tutorials at the moment as I thought they would need the least copyright editing, but some do and most are in the old style pages that I did when I first started, so I'm updating the look of the pages at the same time. I'm doing the tuts as I edit them and have found some that I've improved since I know so much more now! So it's all for your benefit.
 It was slow going for the last couple of weeks as I was having trouble with the server that I was uploading to, about 90% of the files ended up with a socket error, a dead connection, etc most of them after uploading to 100% so then they would start over again and I'd have to sit right by the computer to check whether I wanted it to skip or overwrite. It was a huuuuge pain, but the last few days it has been excellent, very fast and no errors. I thought I was going to have to bail on this host and find another one but it's been very good now! Now it's the host that's hosting my stationery section I'm having trouble with. I suddenly can't log in there, says my credentials are wrong but they're the same ones I've been logging in with all along. That just started so I'll have to see how it goes. But I can't do anything about my stationery at the moment. I'm too busy trying to get the tuts online anyway! That's my way-too-lengthy story! LOL
 Enjoy the calendars and the wallpaper, check out the tuts I have online so far. Here are the links
 Desktop Calendars
 New Wallpaper
 Tile Tutorials
 I also have these tuts back online:
 Making 3D Text (such as in Font previews, I also use this technique sometimes on my tags)
 Add an animation, picture or webpage to  your desktop (I wrote this mainly for people wanting to add my blinkie calendars to their desktop, but it is a very useful tutorial to add other items as well)
 I also have my font tutorials back online here
 Our first camping trip is coming up, second week of June. I always take my laptop and my netbook with me and usually work on site stuff while I'm gone so hopefully I'll get lots done then, with no distractions. No internet though so I can't look up copyright stuff, etc while I'm gone. Have to work on hubby to get some satellite internet or a Rocket Stick from Rogers! Maybe when we're done paying off our brand new trailer! We graduated from a pop-up tent trailer to a full-fledged travel trailer this year, with a Murphy Bed that folds up to the wall and a bathroom with WALLS!!! LOL
 Have a great weekend everyone!

Mother's Day wallpaper page up and Misc Wallpaper page 1

Hi everyone. I've just finished editing two wallpaper pages and I've uploaded them. I've edited all of them for copyright content and made all of them into all three sizes I offer now.
I've finished Miscellaneous wallpaper page 1, direct link is here:
And I've finished Mother's Day-Father's Day wallpaper page. I've only got the Mother's Day wallpaper on the page as I have to edit the Father's Day wallpaper yet. You can get to it here:

I just wanted to get the Mother's Day wallpaper finished before it's past the date!

Have a great night!

May Desktop Calendars up and 5 new Desktop Wallpapers

Hi everyone. I've been working hard all day and I have 3 desktop calendars up for May and 5 new wallpapers.
Check them  out here   New Wallpaper  Desktop Calendars here
2 of the Wallpaper and Calendars are Mother's Day themed, the other is a beautiful Fairy Child dancing.

Fonts section completed and uploaded

Hi everyone. My entire fonts sections is back online now. I just finished uploading all of the pages and testing the links. I'm not sure if the host will have to review all of the files again or not but if you get the review message, that's what's going on. I don't think they have to review each time but mentioning it just in case.
Fonts are here:

Another thing I wanted to mention is that a few people have mentioned to me that Norton's is blocking my site. I just wanted to assure you that my site is completely safe. I have AVG running on my computer at all times and I also Googled my sites and all of my page hits were rated trusted and safe by AVG in Google. I really dislike Norton's, it often gives false positives and it often causes computer problems. You couldn't pay me enough to use any of their products. My husband and I used to repair computers and the first thing we asked was, do you have Norton's on it? If the answer was yes, we uninstalled it and 9 times out of 10 the computer problems cleared up. Each to their own, but I don't like it! LOL

While I appreciate your input on anything else, please don't write to tell me I should love Norton's because you do. I won't, honest. Cross my heart!!

Anyway, back to the problem. Those who allowed my site through despite Norton's are having no problems with it. My webhost also checks all files for malicious content, which is why we had the long wait to have my site reviewed and approved. So no worries, my site is completely safe.

I think I may be working on the tutorial section next. Since my stationery and wallpaper pages have the New wallpaper and New Stationery pages up, I can put all my new stuff there till I get the rest of the sections edited and uploaded. That's going to take quite awhile as each copyright compliant graphic I used before has to be redone to add the copyright info and license info where applicable. The ones that I cannot use at all, I'll have to either get rid of or redo the entire stationery and wallpaper with new tubes/graphics.

And of course, being the end of the month, I have to get the May calendars done.

Whew, startin' to sweat, thinking about it!! 

Have a great day!

Good news, stationery and fonts sections working

Hi everyone. Well good news finally. My stationery sites and font sites have been approved and now you can view them. I stopped working on them till it was approved as I didn't want to waste my time editing pages for links if the site wasn't going to work out.So the stationery pages still have just the new stationery page working and the fonts have some of the pages working as I mentioned before.
Now that they're working again, I'll start adding the font pages as I edit them, probably starting tomorrow, as the font pages will be quicker to finish.
I'll then start editing and adding the stationery pages as they all have to be gone through for copyright issues. Adding links and credits to the graphics and then redoing the stationery before reuploading them. But the important one is the New Stationery and that one is up.
Thanks for being patient!
Just to remind you, not all of the links and buttons work. Just under the New Fonts button you'll see a list of the working pages, which are New Fonts, # Fonts (those starting with a number or other non-alpha key), the Alphadings and the Dingbats.
In Stationery, only the New Stationery button works.

Minor snags in stationery and font pages

Ok, Ok, I know, more snags. LOL They don't tell you ahead of time but the host I used for my stationery and font pages manually review all of your files as soon as you upload your stuff. So if you go there now (if it's not done yet) you'll get a message saying the files are under review and it will be back in 2-4 hours. Apparently it takes much longer than that. I checked out their forum and some people are waiting 7 days or more. I hope this only happens when you first upload the site and not each time I upload a new file! So be patient if you go to the stationery and fonts pages. Once approved those sections will be back online. The rest of my site is somewhere different so I didn't run into that problem. Just those two sections. And once I add the tags section, it will be there too so it will be delayed as well.
Hugs, Ellie

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Some stationery and fonts pages uploaded

Surprise! I have some of my stationery and some of my font pages back up! I found another webhost that will take those file formats so I've been working on it all day.
In the Stationery, I have the main index page and the New Stationery pages back online.
In the Fonts, I have the Fonts Index Page up, as well as New Fonts, #Fonts, Alphadings and Dingbats.
It's a huge job as I have to not only edit the page, I have to go to the counter service and change the addresses there as well for each page. Slow but steady! They have new addresses so if you've bookmarked these two sections previously, the old bookmarks won't work.
Find the Stationery Index page here:
Find the Fonts Index page here:
Don't forget, only a few buttons work so far, just the ones I mentioned above.
I'll be opening a section for my tags when I get caught up, so there will be a new address for them as well, currently the tags buttons don't work, I don't have those pages up.
Note: I tried to open the stationery pages in Opera and hubby tried to open them in Firefox and it said they were checking for file content and to come back later, so far I've just got that page. But I've had no trouble in Internet Explorer getting into the pages.

Snag in getting stationery online

Hi everyone. Well I've run into a snag with my new host. I cannot upload any of the 3 formats of my stationery, imf, exe and eml. It won't allow that file type. So it's back to the drawing board. I'll have to find another host, one that allows these formats. Or not offer stationery any longer. I could offer it on my blog but it would be one at a time as it's made, not in categories like it is now. At least that's the way I'm thinking right now. If I don't make stats I can still write tutorials and offer the desktop wallpaper and calendars, possibly the fonts. I'll have to think about this.
Let me know how you feel about it. I've been making stationery so long I don't know how I'll feel about stopping!Email button at the bottom if you want to tell me how you feel about it. If you know of any free webhost that allows uploading of these 3 formats, could you let me know please?
On another note, I found out that the problem with the previous webhost had nothing to do with me. I ran across the webhosting review site and there are dozens of people on there all complaining about the same thing. Most of us have been with One Dollar Host for 3 years or more. They all had the same thing happen, the webhost site went down for a day, came back online that night and that day all of these people's websites disappeared. No response to any messages sent. Everyone is royally teed off to say the least and most are either giving up or switching to a new host, and just writing off the money they already paid for webhosting. I was paid up for 3 years but still had another full year to go on it. I know I'll never see a refund of that money so I'll just write it off.
I did just upload John's wallpaper and my New Wallpaper page which has all of my newest wallpaper on it.
Have a great day!

site back up

Hi everyone. Well I took the plunge and transferred my domain to a new webhost. Let's hope this one works out better. All of my site addresses are the same as before. I will not be offering fonts any more as this may have been the problem with the last webhost. I don't know since they wouldn't answer me. I've got a start in reuploading all of my pages but I don't have the tutorials, desktop wallpaper and stationery pages up yet as I will have to comb through those for copyright issues before uploading them. I will only reupload my newer stationery and wallpaper, the ones I have copyright info on. I won't be reuploading all of the translated tutorials either as some of those tags have copyright issues, both with using more than one artist per tag and not having the artists' copyrights on them. They are impossible to fix due to those reasons and I'm not taking a chance on losing another site. I do hope to start writing tutorials again and will keep you posted about that. I'll also keep you posted when I add the rest of the pages to my site as I go along. Thanks for sticking with me! Hugs, Ellie

re my site

Hi everyone. I'm still working on trying to get my site back. My webhosts have refused to answer any emails and phone calls I've made, not one message back. I have found a free webhost that I can upload some of my site too, it's not unlimited like the one I had but I don't trust paying for one again and them taking my money and removing my site without the courtesy of any answers. I needed to simplify anyway, I had way too much there and trying to make it all copyright compliant was a nightmare, considering the foreign tutorials I translated and the older stuff I had. I just want to see today if I can get ahold of someone at my webhost and if not, I'll sign up with the new host and see about transfering my domain over. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for sticking with me!
Hugs, Ellie

my site is not gone for good

Hi everyone. Many of you have been writing me and asking about my site. It's not gone for good, my hosting company made some kind of error and made my account inactive, possibly thinking my account expired in March 2010 instead of March 2011. That's the only thing I can think of. I've contacted their customer service and he said my account is inactive. I said why? He said it expired, I've only renewed for 3 years. I said right, that was in 2008 and this is 2010, 2 years. Oh yeah, he says, I see that now. So he said he'd get in touch with the right people and let them know and I'd hear back in 24-48 hours. That was on Friday. Being a holiday weekend I don't expect to hear back from them till at least Tuesday. But I'll be back! I'm only hoping they don't delete my site before that, at the moment I can still connect with my ftp program so I know the files are still there. Wish me luck!
Thanks to those who wrote and inquired about it, I'm glad you're missing me!
Have a great Easter.
Hugs, Ellie
