Updates:May 1, 2016:
New month means new layout. Finally. Hooray! I'm still tweaking it, so it'll be a bit before I'm done account-hopping to fix everything. Also want to do an updated graphics count. Depending on how long this takes, I should have a few new graphics up either tonight or sometime tomorrow, so stay tuned for that.
And Daily Dare ends tomorrow, which means I should have a bit more time (and motivation) to work on more graphics soon. So, if you have any "requests", please don't hesitate to send them to me. I'm always looking for inspiration. :)
+New Site Layout
April 23, 2016:
I am just having setback after setback after setback here. Got my graphics program, started working on some stuff, then my external hard drive (which is where I keep ALL my coding and ALL my graphics, brushes, fonts, etc.) stopped working. So I've been in mourning for that for a bit, because that's nine years of my life gone, just like that.
But I'm back now, and I have one new lookup to add. It was requested while I didn't have a graphics program, so I wanted to get it done as soon as possible. I also have a shield request I'm about to knock out (which may morph itself into an impromptu random-themed day, we'll have to see), and then I'll need to work on a site layout for May. April's almost over, so we'll just ride this one out for another week.
Part of what I lost and now can't replace without redoing it from scratch (which I simply do not have time for right now) is my hover previews, so, sorry, but y'all will have to make do.

Ordered ANOTHER graphics program yesterday after the first one refused to show. So, here's hoping that by next weekend I will be in graphics-making bliss. Not much to add today. May fiddle with some pet lookups later. We'll see. New affiliates today: Airiyel and Buttons by Kellie.

I know it's been a while. Sorry, guys. This lack of a graphics program thing is really bumming me out. And there's only so many CSS color palettes I can do before they all start looking similar. I know I promised to work on some pet lookups for y'all, but it's a little more complex than I thought to change a lookup into a pet lookup, so I haven't felt like dealing with that yet. But I will. Soon.
In the meantime, here are four new color palettes, with a few more on the way in the next few days or so. Also, don't forget to check out my Daily Dare Guide, if you haven't already done so.

I've hit a bit of a wall, as far as new color palettes are concerned. I have a few lookups I still need to screenshot and get up, and then I'll be focusing on converting the existing palettes to pet lookups, and eventually shop/gallery layouts. If you have an idea for something you'd like to see turned into a palette for a layout (I usually use items and eyedrop the colors out of them,) please don't hestitate to suggest it to me. I won't bite, I promise. :) I also have a new affiliate I have to get around to linking everywhere. That's first priority today.
EDIT: Finally done adding the affiliate to every page (which is very time consuming, as you can imagine), plus I also added two directories that I found out had listed me ages ago without me even asking them to (thus leading me to forget about them for this long), so I put them up as well. Putting the following lookups up on the appropriate page, then taking a break for a bit.

I've made an executive decision. Since I'm adding SO MANY layouts right now (because CSS layouts take about a tenth the time of a normal layout), I'm not going to put the codes up here. That way I don't have to flip accounts so often, and I don't eat up all my update space. Not being able to load my own page to save it is kind of a bummer. The codes for everything I've done so far are on the appropriate page which can be found here. As always, thank you for your patience and understanding.

Still no word on my graphics software, so I guess I'll have to make do with what I have. I've done some new CSS color palettes as user lookups for the time being, and changed some of the older palettes into lookups, as well. Over the next few days, I'll work on making these into pet lookups and shop/gallery layouts, and then turning the existing color palettes into pet lookups, as well. That should keep me busy for a while. So, from left to right, we have Saint Patrick's Day, Easter, Baby, Faerie, Valentine, UnValentine, Christmas, Disco, Orange, and Blue. The thumbnails may be a little junky because I'm using Paint, but since there are no graphics on the layouts themselves, I assure you, they'll be fine. :) I need to make a place for these on the appropriate page so it may be a bit before they get up there.

Also deleted most of the old updates, which cleared up about 150k characters, which should make the page easier for me to update. And, just as a small sidenote, gallery layouts (because the corresponding shop layouts are so annoying to code) will be last in this CSS to-do list. But, luckily, I've already got a bunch of CSS shop/gallery layouts available. :)

So I meant to post an update weeks ago, just letting you guys know that I hadn't died or anything. That I had ordered a new fan for my laptop (that I then had to install before I could do anything), so it was gonna be a while before I could update anything. But my computer was in such bad shape that I couldn't even post the update. And I wasn't able to fix it, so I had to wait until I could get a new one. However, I'm still waiting on a graphics program, so we're still not where we should be. In the meantime, I've thrown together an updated-ish to-do list.
- More CSS-Based Layouts (User Lookups, Petpages, Pet Lookups) and New Palettes (In progress. Stay tuned.)
- St. Patrick's Day/Easter Graphics (On hold 'til I get a graphics program.)
- April/May Site Layouts (On hold 'til I get a graphics program.)
- Finish Old Pet Lookups And Shop Layouts That I Started Ages Ago
- Fill in Holes in Corner Backgrounds and Glitters
- Change Credit on All Existing Graphics (Longggg term project.)
- New Pet Lookups
- Reorganize Things as I Go
- Vandagyre Graphics
- Shop/Gallery Layout "Request".
- Redo Graphics for and Recode Pet Lookups
- Non-Advent Calendar Graphics for the Winter Season
- Recode Shop Layouts
- January, February, March Site Layouts
As soon as I'm done downloading stuff to the new computer, I will start coding some things to tide y'all over for a bit. If you have ideas for CSS color palettes, please throw them into my inbox. As always, thanks for your continued support and understanding.

So I was fully intending on updating yesterday with March's layout at the very least, but my computer didn't seem to want to recognize my external hard drive for the past several days. And on top of that, my laptop has been overheating and shutting down for no apparent reason. So, I'm a bit behind. I will try to get the new layout up tonight, but no promises. It's already 7:00 p.m. here and I haven't even started switching coding around yet. Please bear with me. I promise to have some new stuff for y'all as soon as I can.
