Quite a lot of you have already filled out the poll the other day, about what things you'd like to see more of, and being the silly person that I am, I forgot to include a question about wallpaper sizes! So, question!

Hello dear watchers!

I've noticed that I now have quite a large number of followers, so many more than I ever would have expected. Thank you for that. And now I'd love to know what you'd like to see more of. I'll probably not icon fandoms I'm not into (anymore), but I still want your opinion.

[Poll #1645616]

Feel free to leave any other suggestions in the comments. And if you want to leave images, go here! The next post is most likely going to be entirely Leverage-themed.
Thank you for watching. ♥

joyful_sparkle is now [ profile] picon!

How I came up with [ profile] picon, you ask? Well, as most of you probably know I've been very much into Battlestar Galactica in the past few months; so much, in fact, that I paid way too much money to see Mary McDonnell in Bournemouth this month (be jealous, she was amazing). I never really liked joyful_sparkle as a name for my community, but it was the first thing I could think of (that was actually still available) when I created it back in 2007. And ever since I renamed by personal journal from tate4ever to multicolour, I've been thinking about changing this one here, too. And now, Battlestar has given me the perfect name. Picon is the name of one of the Twelve Colonies. It is definitely not my favourite Colony (that would be Caprica, but that was already in use), but it might be my second favourite. Picon was the location for the Colonial Fleet Headquarters and the Colony that Ellen Tigh claimed to have been at during the attacks. It is also the home Colony of Samuel T. Anders, Playa Palacios and (as of a few months before the miniseries) the family of Billy Keikeya (BILLY! ♥). This is their flag.

That's enough Battlestar trivia for today. I just wanted to let you know how I came up with that name. I hope you'll get used to it soon, I really love it. Also, if you use any of my icons and have so far credited in the following format
<*lj user="joyful_sparkle"*>

livejournal will change it to picon automatically. If you've only put in joyful_sparkle, without the lj user tags, I'd appreciate it very much if you changed it to picon.

And we've got some community pimping! )

Upcoming icon posts: random stock icons, Battlestar, maybe some NCIS or Bones.
Now have a great day everybody!

Hey my dear members and watchers! :)
It's unbelievable, but as of today, I've had this community for one year.

I'd like to thank every one of you for having joined the comm and for leaving comments and for just being here. ♥ This means a lot. :)

To celebrate this event, I thought I'd make some kind of request post.
Comment with an image of your choice (you can also include more than one and I will decide), preferably high quality, and I will make an icon out of it.
This could take quite some time, though, as most of you know how busy I am right now.

I'm going to take 10 requests for now, if I have more time, I might also extend that.

Love & Hugs

Hey people!

I'm always looking for suggestions, caps, ideas, challenges. So feel free to leave me requests here. I'm mostly looking for new caps to icon that I haven't seen yet, so if there's one of any of my fandoms (or a show I don't watch, but please be specific and explain what's going on in the scene), or a stock photo that you like, just leave the link(s) here and I'll add it to my photoshop folders.

However, please note that I'll treat the comments as suggestions, not as actual requests. I might get something done with your picture(s), but no promises.
Comments are screened!
