Sorry for the lack of updates! I've been so busy lately, and I will be for a while... However, we have a gorgeous new linkback button!

5th dec 2010
+1 icon
Listed at Christie's Directory, but other than that, not much has happened. :3

4th dec 2010
+7 button bases
Applied for my very first review at Amore! I'm quite excited, and hopefully once it's done, I'll be able to make lots of improvements to Serendipity. :D I've also made a new banner, which I hope you like.

3rd dec 2010
+8 gift images
Entered the SOTM at Mignon Ink! It's yet to be put up though. ;) Also, check out the new section in Extras - a present giving competition! There is a prize and lots of colourful images. :3

2nd dec 2010
+9 envelope pixels +2 icons
Requests are open, so please don't hesitate to request anything if you want to. ;) Also, as a note in advance, in a couple of weeks, I may have to spend a week at a friend's house, so I won't be able to update then. Apologies!

1st dec 2010
+2 textures
First of December! :3 One new affie - Edible Art! I've also fixed my wireless, so I should be able to update more, which is all good.

30th nov 2010
+2 textures
Been having a lot of problems with my internet wireless recently... Apologies! I hope I'll have it fixed soon.

29th nov 2010
+4 textures +1 wallpaper
One new affie; G6 Graphics! ;) There's also a new section in resources for textures! Not much there yet, but there will be, there will be.

28th nov 2010
Been so busy lately... I will add more graphics soon, I promise! :3

+welcome sign +banner +completed request +icon

22nd nov 2010
Hurrah, completed my first request today! Pretty proud. :3 Also listed in one more place!

21st nov 2010
What's this? A brand new layout? Already?! Yes, yes. After I opened the old layout in Firefox, it was obvious there was a mountain of problems. Rather than fiddling around, I decided to just code a new layout from scratch, so voila. A new layout, completely by me, and one that works in Firefox. :D

20th nov 2010
Listed in a couple more places, a new affie and six new sets of emoticons. :D

17th nov 2010
And I though I'd enter myself into the Take a Bow SOTM just to see what else I could do to improve my site in these early stages. ;)

16th nov 2010
I've entered myself in two icon competitions for some fun ;). Both icons have been added to my icons section.

15th nov 2010
We are now listed in several places and have one affie. It's a start, right? Also a couple more graphics, including a set of little cupcake emoticons. :3

14th nov 2010
Serendipity is officially open!! What a special, special day :3

13th nov 2010
And a couple more graphics and resources, as well as a few minor edits to other pages.

12th nov 2010
The first couple of graphics are up! Obviously, there aren't very many yet, but I promise you, one day, there will be dozens and dozens of them. Every graphics site has to start off somewhere, though, right? Anyhow, once I get a few more up, I'll start looking for directories and such.

11th nov 2010
And I am back. And as I predicted, I am incredibly eager to get Serendipity up and running. I still have lots of work to do though! ;)

7th nov 2010
Serendipity was born. Made. Created. However you would like to put it. Obviously, I'm no miracle worker, so it will be a while before the site is truly up and running. And, due to some inconvenient inconveniences, I won't actually have access to my computer for the next few days. But at least that way, when I get back, I'll be itching to get back to work. :P

welcome

to serendipity

Serendipity. Look for something, find something else, and realize that what you've found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for.
~Lawrence Block

A warm welcome to you, swiftali! You have found your way to Serendipity, a graphics site made by me, swiftali which has been running ever since the 7th of November 2010. Serendipity is a relatively new site, so there aren't many graphics and such up yet, but I hope that one day, there will be a collection I can be proud of.

Enjoy, and I hope you make a desirable discovery today. ...yes, that was rather cheesy. Anyhow, just make sure you read the rules before using or requesting any graphics :P.

Any questions? Suggestions? Feel free to just neomail me! I'll get back to you as soon as I can ;).

Spare a vote? :3

This site is best viewed in Internet Explorer, and is almost perfect in Firefox. If you are using Chrome, Opera or Safari, I have yet to try the layout out in those browsers, so if there are any problems, a neomail would be greatly appreciated :3.

Want to give your friends a present this Christmas? Head over to the Gifts section where not only are there many presents to choose from, there's also a fun competition to enter. ;)

rules

the important stuff

Rules. Something every site must have. Please do take care to read these before using or requesting any graphics.

1. leave credit
It is necessary, and very much appreciated. I've even made pretty little link back buttons for you! :3

2. do not steal or redistribute
I'm happy for you to use my graphics, obviously, but just make sure you're not claiming them to be your own.

3. check whether requests are open
If requests are closed, it normally means I'm busy or away, and the last thing I want is to return with a full inbox. Requests made when Serendipity is closed are likely to be ignored.

4. be patient
I am only human, and doing a request may take some time. When I read a request, I will reply to acknoledge it. If you see that I have updated the site since you've sent your request, but I have not replied and seem to have overlooked it, then you may neomail me. ;)

5. do not edit graphics
Unless I say otherwise, you may not edit my graphics. If you are desperate to make a tweak to a graphic, please contact and ask me beforehand. Even then, you must still give me credit because, after all, I did do some of the work. :P Oh, and as just a random addition, my favorite fruit are clementines.

request

personalised graphics for you

Please check requests are open first. I may take some time to respond. Only one request per person at a time, but once your request is done, feel free to make another. Make sure to use the form and the correct subject or your request may be ignored. :P

request


waiting list


I don't have a limited number of requests I can have at a time, so this area is more so you can check I've seen your request, and as a sort of to-do list for me. ;) Newest requests are at the bottom, and the oldest at the top.

1. Cat (nesticasay)

pickup


This space will be cleared every now and then, so make sure to grab your graphic ASAP. Once you've taken your graphic, please do neomail me so I can remove it :3. And don't take graphics from here that you yourself didn't request. How'd you like it if someone came and nabbed your takeaway order?

Cat (nesticasay)
Here is your icon! Hope you like it. If there are any problems, please neomail me. ;)

And this is where I will throw all the past requests. Once again, please do not take any images from here.

About Gifts













about me


My real name is Alice, and to be honest, I'm just an average teenage girl. Outside of Neopets, I enjoy writing novels, doodling wherever there's any white space (including all over my schoolwork) and teaching myself how to play songs on the piano. And I really love music. My taste varies, but I almost always have a song going through my head. I'm one of those people who would rather stay at home than go outside, and call me boring, but home is definitely my favourite place.

I used to have a Neopets account where I had a nice pile of money and secret avatars, but after a series of events, I stopped playing. And then, after a very long break, I wanted to get back on, but I'd managed to forget everything. Even my username...

And that's why I'm here now, as swiftali, starting anew. I'll admit, though, this is the first time I've attempted to make a petpage. One day I just stumbled across a directory of petpages, and I was drawn right into the world of Neopets sites.

So there you go, the brief history of moi. Sorry if it wasn't very...interesting.




There will be more coming to this section soon...

gifts


It's December, it's getting colder, the days are getting shorter... And yes, that means that Christmas is coming! Have you been busy getting presents for your friends and family? Well, why not give your friends a Neopets gift as well!

These graphics below are for you to personalise with you and your friend's name, and then to send off to whoever you may wish.

Sound good? And I was thinking, just to make things a little bit more fun and festive, we could have a little competition to see who received the most gifts from different people! Obviously, there will be a prize graphic that the winner can display on their site/user look-up for all to see.

More info on the competition can be found below all the gifts.

To edit these graphics, use a graphics-editing program that allows transparency (the graphics are partly transparent) such as GIMP, and simply use the text tool to put names into the boxes. Then upload the saved image - I use TinyPic to do this. I may upload non-transparent versions later.

Without further ado, here they are! More coming soon. ;)











gift competition

1. No gift forgery - aka. sending yourself gifts
2. Although you can receive more than one gift from one person, only one of them will count
3. You don't have to send a gift back to someone who has sent you one, but it would be nice
4. The gift must have both usernames (sender and recipient) either on the graphic or as the alternate text (text that appears when you hover on an image)

If you would like to enter, please neomail me with the subject "Gift Competition" including a link to where you will be placing all received gifts. ;)

enter

I will check all the links from entrees as often as I can, and post up a list of who has entered and how many gifts they have, so you do not have to email me each time you get one. Check back often to see how you're doing! ;)

Please tell your friends about this - the more the merrier! I may make a little button to say "I'm in the Gift Competition!" soon, so you can display that proudly for everyone to see.

I plan for the competition to end at the end of December, but we'll see how it goes.

Good luck! :3
