you approach the building
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. -- Confucius
You approach the parking lot and cautiously make your way to the entrance of a small building at the edge of town. Earlier, you received a note telling you to go there. You couldn't decipher who had signed it. The building had a grimy exterior and looked abandoned. Still deciding whenever or not to actually enter, your curiosity gets the better of you and you walk through the door. Slowly, you take a look around and notice a tilted sign in the corner that says One...
Welcome to One, a button request site run by Abigail. One is here for your every button need! Since December 25th 2012, One has been providing stunning buttons for you and your site. My goals for One are to create the highest quality buttons and to make you happy.
august 21th :// short hiatusSchool has just started, and let's just say; I'm overwhelmed. I'm super sorry to all of my requesters, but as you all know, real life always comes first. I'll try to complete most of my requests over the weekend, so please be patient! I will not update as often, and requests will not be open for a while. Thank you for understanding!
request a button?
requests homeAhh, welcome! An old man says after you enter, Nice to meet you deary, I'm Cedrowy! You must've gotten my letter. I sent them out to a lot of people, but you are the only one to respond. He chuckles. You can go look in the Box if you'd like to take something.
You can leave either visible credit or a link on the button to One Please only request when request's sign says they are open! If you actually have read the rules, copy and paste /happiness/ in your form. I will complete requests for under-construction sites, as long as you have a layout up. I will not complete a request for another button request site because I feel as if you should make your own buttons. I will most likely not respond if your request has been accepted. I will only notify you if I have a question, your request has been rejected, and that it's ready for pickup. If you haven't received a response or weren't put on the waiting list within 48 hours, feel free to resend your request. While this is not a 'rule', I'd greatly appreciate if you used my buttons. If you do not like it, neomail me and I can remake your button or put the base to better use.

BorderBorders add a the finishing touch, the closing to a button. Below are some options you can choose from!
Some of these borders are the amazing works of others! Some of these borders are One Originals and before using you must ask permission from me Certain borders, like the Expand border, are best with small titles The fade border can be applied on any other border, ex. Curved Corner border with fade inlay. Some borders are best viewed in a new tab, drag and drop if necessary
animationAnimations add a nice feel to a button, though it is optional, it is highly recommended to have!
Fill up and down, Parade, Layer, One by One, and Colour Change aren't compatible with large fonts. Soft star, linear sparkle and random sparkle are best used when you have space on the button Snow Animation can be in front or behind the text Text shine works best with large fonts

pickup!You spent much time looking through the Box, when the old man speaks to you. Done lookin'? He says sarcastically. I know just what you need! He walks around the little counter, ducks down, then returns with a smaller, purple box. Take a look in here, what you want is bound to be in there...

hi, my name is abigail
Hello! I'm Abigail, owner of this fine establishment. My main account is kingwise and I don't own any sides yet. I live now just moved to Georgia United States and I'm used to moving around alot. I'm currently in high school and my least favourite subject is Human Geography. Feel free to drop me a neomail if you'd like to know more.
On neopets, my main focus is One and getting my avatar count up (that'll happen). I love to draw neopets and other items and playing around in Photoshop since I just got it. Gimp is my life. Photoshop cs6 is fabulous!
That's it for now.
Awards and ReviewsThese are all the accomplishments One has received. Thank you so much for everyone that let us get this far!
Animation Tutorial: SpreadThis tutorial works in Photoshop CS5 and any other version that has the tween and motion blur options. This tutorial has not been tested in gimp!
In order to start animating, have your base ready!
Set up your layers so the text is separate from the base like above.
Duplicate the text layer and make the duplicate invisible like above.
Motion blur the the visible text layer with the settings above or feel free to experiment.
Open up the animation window or timeline in Photoshop CS6. Set it up so the first frame has the clear text, the second frame has the blurred text, and the third frame has the clear text. If done correctly, it'll look like above.
With the first frame selected, tween with the settings above. Then, select the second to last frame and tween again.
Add 10 to 15 blank frames and you're all done!
SitelyNow that yous gotten what you want, Finan says. Yous can tell people about One by using these here buttons or you can visit other people's shops.
