Welcome to my blog. Stick around and read a few posts.

I would like to thank everyone that uses my Theme designs and Wallpapers.

A special thank you to all of you that take the time that to write or post comments on my designs at: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/user/MaDonna/

I hope you become a follower and check in every once in awhile. I am trying a bit harder to update more often.

Cold and Blowing

 Blue Enchantment

Wow, long time since I have posted, isn't it? I am getting almost too compulsive about working on designs. Since I don't review anymore I am putting in double time having fun, but it is still work. And I know I should be doing something else, but what's a person to do? My 72nd birthday is very close and at my age I should be doing what I enjoy, I guess.

The above design turned out very well, anyway I think it did and I hope my followers will like it also. The desktop to match can be found at: http://nature.desktopnexus.com/wallpaper/599838/

It is very cold here today with a northeast wind howling, so I am continually putting wood in the fire but it keeps us warm. We were lucky and didn't get any snow like they did just south of us.

I have been kind of enthralled with working on some Gothic type ideas. I got some new Photoshop brushes and they are working out really well. And I am learning more and more about working with layers and I think that is what is making my designs different than when I started. I hope you like the new styles as well as the older ones. 

I am also really, really enjoying not reviewing. That took up so much of my time and the new reviewers are doing a good job keeping up with the submissions. I am hoping when Firefox 4 comes out there won't be any problems with the different extensions and Persona designs. I am not going to download it as soon as they let it out for the public. I have found it doesn't pay to update something for a few days to make sure all the bugs are out. Mozilla works very hard on the Beta with a lot of people using it and finding problems, but they never find all of them until it is let out for the millions of different people to use.

I really don't have much to say or complain about today, but I didn't want anyone to think I wasn't still around. I am and I am working.

Hope it is warmer where you live. Have a great week end, all.

Till next time.


  1. Hi MaDonna,
    Like the Green Background, looks fresh and ready for Spring. Also the Artistic Green Writing is a lovely touch.

    The new 'Blue Enchantment' Persona is delicately sensitive... very pretty.

    My imagination is already wondering what your Gothic Themes may impart... will be keeping a watch to experience the resulting Persona/Personas.

    Want to thank you again for being an inspiration... events occurred that I was not comfortable with... I remembered your words in choosing to stop doing what was becoming steadily more unpleasant, and the good difference the doing so has given you.

    I decided to close the site I had begun and am in the process of building a new site... it's still in 'Private Mode', I'm glad Blogger provides the variety of options to choose from. It is a boon.

    The decision to change has resulted in a learning process I would not be experiencing if I'd stayed where I was, simply coping with the growing discomfort I felt.

    I'm finding I feel a renewed pleasure happening as the new site shapes. Also feel a little more knowing than did, and a little more confident.

    So the Little Shield Logo is not a new Follower, but simply me stepping out renewed.

    Thank you. Your Story, helped me decide that to feel good about what one is doing is more important than to simply persevere and slowly grow less content.

    Heaps of good wishes to you MaDonna, from Magda (Australia)

  2. Very nice! Elegant and... i love butterflies!

    Best wishes to you and your family.
