New Theme (Orca)

Hello again! I recently took my site offline for a few days while I changed the theme and made changes to many of the pages throughout the site.

The theme is awesome. It is called Orca, created by EckoThemes and purchased via Themeforest. I love that it is very spacious and ‘clean lined’. I wanted a design that was new, fresh and squeaky clean. I had intended to create a theme of my own the next time I wanted a change… maybe after this one. :D

Free WP Theme: Santa 2013

screenshot I have made a free Christmas inspired WordPress theme of Santa that is free for anyone to use. The design is rather simple (as I have not designed with WordPress for a long time), but I still wanted to share this. If you notice any problems, please let me know (preferably via email – kya@love.com). I hope that anyone that does use it will enjoy it. *hug*

You can see a live preview of the theme or download it and use on your website? :B

I plan to make some more free themes, maybe even another christmassy style one as well. It was fun to make this. It was much like making an interactive illustration in a way, that people could use in a cool way. :D

Blog shuffling again

So I decided to shuffle things around again and now have my blog back on a self-hosted WordPress and plan on using it as a personal blog, as it has been for a long time. I was rather inspired by Liz and how honest her blog is and thought that I should really do that too. I also decided to restore all of my old blog posts (from 2003 onwards). Many of these older entries are pretty crazy, but they are mine and I shouldn’t hide from them, at least I know I have grown as a person (… hopefully).

Because I haven’t designed a website for a long time (let alone a WordPress theme) I decided to purchase one. So I brought Keilir which I think is rather awesome and should work well until I decide to make my own theme again.

I have kept the previous posts I was making of daily inspiration/creative things and moved those to moon.nu which I will still continue to work on.

There hasn’t been a lot going on at the moment, or rather nothing exciting. I am trying to deal with a lot of mental health issues, that I might address later.


Brief Blogeo

This is just a quick blog to point out the fact the layout has been changed. I had actually brought a theme, then decided to use a HTML template I had made a little while ago and turn into into a WordPress theme and add some features. It’s simple, but I like it (so far). I might consider offering it for other people, but not sure if anyone would use it? :i

I have a blog post planed, mainly about reflection and what I want to be able to do in life (break free of the fear). The inspiration for it? My birthday is tomorrow and I am turning 24, feels so weird. o_0

I am working on revamping the content. So far I have fixed About me, 50 books, domains and geek. I want to finish off the me section and get into the goodies as well. That is really bad and has a number of dead links. :(

1422 (Because I has no title, lols)

I have been trying to make a new theme for the blog. I purchased a very cute image on istockphoto.com for it and I have 90% of the general structure done, I am just lacking inspiration and motivation to finish it. :x _x

I have been lacking motivation in many areas of life at the moment, I hope to fix this (and kick myself up the bum) soon. 4_4

Dad went into hospital again, he seems to be doing okay, but it may take a few days before he is home again. It really puts your mind into trauma/shock when someone you love gets sick and taken into the hospital many times. I know I am not the only one.

My Mac should be shipped tomorrow. I hope hope hope! 3_3

Yeah, life has been a bitch

My blog is back online again, I made this theme with an image purchased from iStockphoto.com.

My Nanna passed away on the 5th of May and it has been really sad since that time. I was very close to her and I am slowly healing.

Dad had his operation on the 3rd of May and he is going really well. It was a big operation (removal of bowel and bladder) and he won’t be home for several months, and will be off work for up to a year. I am just very thankful he is okay.

I haven’t been that active online lately, but I am trying to catch up on emails.

Tea Time!

After creating a theme for Kate, it gave me the inspiration to create a new theme for my site. Instead of designing my own image I decided to buy one I really like, so I did. The header image was purchased from iStockphoto.com for 30 credits, a little bit more than normal but honestly in my eyes worth it. Some people are so amazingly talented I love to support them. 3_3

I had hoped to have a bunch of new content when opening this again, but I am due to babysit any minute so I will have to wait until later. So if you see any bugs, let me know and I will fix them soon enough. ^_^

Cute New Theme

I found this deliciously cute theme called Crafty Cart and I had to use it (on my blog, not Live Journal). Maybe one day I will actually create my own. :[

I brought a shopping magazine for Tweens (haha) and it has so many absolutely adorable items. I have either plans to make a section on the website of shops I love (in greater detail compared to the simple section under links I have now), or even create another website for this. My bookmarks are so full of stores that sell cute/unique/quirky items. Sometimes it’s more fun browsing around these sites then actually buying at them, maybe that is just me. ;)

Wow. I just realised it was September 11. Hard to believe that the attacks on New York were so many years ago.

What are your favourite online stores?

And I’m Back

So, after a year or so without having a proper blog on the website I am back. I didn’t restore the old archives because I wanted to start fresh. I was going to create a theme for the site but found this free one and decided to use it instead. I am sure the next one will be something orgional.

This time I have added visitor content with a whole bunch of different things, from domain ideas, free layouts and pixel images! No doubt I will also make more when I can find the time. <)

How is life? It’s pretty good at the moment really. I still care for my elderly grandfather (Poppy) after my grandmother (Nanna) was taken into a nursing home. It became a huge load on everyone, emotionally as well as psychically. I am still working on my books and also spending more time practicing art and enjoying it greatly. I am also concidering going back to school, but that prospect still scares me a little so I have to make sure I am ready. Just a smallish update for those who have not heard what has been happerning for a while. :B

Take care everyone and if we are familiar with each other you might want to affiliate? :3

Temporary ‘Classic’ Layout

It seems there may have been problems with old files I had with the comments/functions so I have decided to make the theme again when I have the chance, so this theme might be up for a few days. I know it’s pretty ugly, hopefully I can find some time to do it soon!

My grandfather is home again, Mum and I were rather unhappy about it because he was still very sick yesterday. He hasn’t improved completely but he is getting better, thankfully. It has been a real worry. :(

I watched Juno last night, that movie was really great! I haven’t had a chance to watch a lot of new ones as of late, and I miss being able too, but I am sure I will be able to some time soon, especially some Ryan Gosling ones. ;) *cough*
