Autumn Resting Wolf

Thought I would stop in and thank the loyal fans that voted for my theme in the Brand Thunder contest. I knew I would not win the popular vote contest because I refuse to go on Facebook. But I did win the most important contest to me and that was the one judged by professionals. You can read about it at: http://brandthunder.com/2012/winner-best-design-pop-culture-theme/ Brand Thunder broadened my horizons as far as designs go. As you know I usually stick to nature but since this was for pop culture I had to do some deep thinking. One thing I never thought I would do was gaming themes, but I talked to a grandson and he gave me some ideas and I really enjoyed making them. And will probably continue to make a few. So I want to thank Brand Thunder for the contest and for liking my designs well enough to judge me the winner.

I am excited about winning the Google Nexus 7 and learning something new. I had almost enough winnings from other contest to buy the Kindle Fire HD and have read 2 books already on it, so now my husband can read books on either the Nexus 7 or the Kindle Fire HD! 
 
The theme I have up today is from a painting by Peter Williams. I just happened to come across some of his art work and wrote and asked him if he would allow me to use his work for my Persona theme designs and he was nice enough to grant me the privilege. There is something about wolves that fascinate me. You can probably tell because I have made quite a few wolf designs. It may be some of my Native American heritage from way back when my great, great, grandfather married a Cherokee or Choctaw Indian woman named Nancy.
 
I am now working on Christmas themes and it is kind of hard to do when you are not really in that frame of mind yet. But I am doing it!
 
I want to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
 
That is all for now

Finalist in Brand Thunder theme contest!!

FALL RAIN SHOWER
 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fall-rain-shower/

Well, I am a finalist in the pop culture theme contest from Brand Thunder. So I am asking all my fans to vote for the one Brand Thunder chose. You can check it out at: http://brandthunder.com/2012/omg-pop-culture-theme-contest-finalists-are-here/

The one they chose of mine was "Pirates of the Caribbean". It was not the one I thought they might choose if I made it to the finals, but I am very happy to be there. I think you can only vote through Facebook and as you know I don't do Facebook so that lets me out of voting for myself! So it will depend on you guys out there that do Facebook, I guess. I worked really hard all month and made some pretty good ones. My favorite was the Elvis one I called "No Time to Say Goodbye" but then I guess that shows my age. I skipped school to go to his movie "Love me Tender" when I was in high school! I think you can vote once a day, but am not sure about that so you can try and see if it lets you. I would appreciate any and all of you that can vote to do so.

The theme I am showing today is the fall design I am using. It seems to be pretty popular with Firefox users also. The wallpaper link is at the Persona site.

I would like to wish all of you on the east coast that were in that horrible storm good luck and I hope you can get back to your homes or someplace warm and dry soon.  A fellow named Tony had written to me and asked if I would make a Persona with a photo of his Siberian Husky, Bandit. So since I was finished making designs for the contest I took time yesterday to make two for him and submitted one. I wrote to him and told him it was on line and got a message back saying, he couldn't see it because the storm hit him hard. I have no idea where he lives but I was surprised to think how insulated I was from it. We watched the horrible pictures on TV but here I was sitting in my nice warm living room and thousands of people were living through the havoc.  My thoughts are with them and I am going to send the Red Cross what we can, anyway. That is about all I can do for now.

Now, I am going to ask all of you to vote in the election on Tuesday also. This is one of the most important things we can do to keep our country free, I feel sad that some out there are trying to make it hard or impossible for every citizen to vote and I hope if you are one of those that you can see through the smoke and mirrors. You can vote if you are registered, so do.

I will let you know the results of the contest next week. Since I don't do Facebook I have my doubts of winning the popularity contest but I sure as heck would like to. Thanks to all of you and let your friends and relatives know they can vote, too.
