I actually couldn't believe it. Even less than the first time, and let me tell you, I checked for five minutes then wether I really understood it right.

I've been nominated again, but this time - for one of my icons! An icon of me is nominated at [livejournal.com profile] wicked_awards ! Can you believe that? I still barely can!
It's this one:

I still feel weird with all the bragging, that's usually not my style (and other than certain bleached blonde ones, I really mean that), but I have to tell someone who understands how truly fantastic I feel with this! It's not about getting congrats.
And I don't need to win. Being nominated - I already won.

Whoever did this - thank you so, so much! It was a wonderful present!

As one of the rising stars of icon making (if you ask me) you totally have a right to brag! I love the mood you created with that Anya icon. But I can think of several more of your icons that would have deserved a nomination too.

A rising star - I appreciate your faith in me, but - uh, no. I got lucky with some icons, but I'm so far away from what you and others are able to create, and I doubt I'll have much time in the next months to learn much more, starting with a new first grade class at school in two weeks and all.

Thanks for your words, though! They make me happy all the same :) (not only about the Anya icon (and wow, thank you so much for those alone!), but also those about some other icons... :) )

"Got lucky"? How long have you been busy making icons? And see the level you've achieved in this short period? That's what we call talent, not luck!

That's great!

Yeah, it feels absolutely fantastic! That's why I needed this outlet for my happiness :)

Brag away, girl! And congratulations!

Thank you!!! *beams* That means a lot, coming from you!

Getting recognized is a wonderful feeling and something we all need. I am happy you're getting the attention you deserve.

It is. And we do. I wish there were SIMS contests, so you could have that, too...
Thank you for being happy with me, sweetie!

Thank you for those kind words, but the sims Internet community actually is a very lively and creative one and there are many that are much, much, much more talented than I am. The Sims was the reason that I landed on Livejournal a couple of years ago, but when the simmers moved on to Tumblr (google and you'll se) I didn't follow. It's a snap-happy crowd (I suck at taking pictures and I don't like to do it - it feels like a chore) and the pacing at Tumblr was just too much for me. I do want to share my interest with others, but I have a couple of acquaintences left here and that is enough for me.

I don't get Tumblr. Follow a discussion there including understanding who said what or finding something I look for seems to be impossible for me. I guess I'm too old.

Congrats! It's absolutely amazing icon.
And I totally understand the feeling - to know that someone noticed your work and cared to nominated it, it could make any author's day =)

Date: Aug. 16th, 2016 11:45 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile] freecat15.livejournal.com
Thank you!!! Wow. (Absolutely amazing? *blushes heavily*)

That's a fantastic feeling, right?

This is an outstanding icon - you deserve the nomination. I'm with you it's an honor to have someone appreciate your work enough to nominate it for an award. In all the years that I have been doing fanart I've seldom been nominate for an award of any kind. Congratulations!

I have no idea how I could miss this comment - weird.
On the plus side, I couldn't find it at a better time, having had a crappy day today :)

Thank you so much for your words, they really saved my day <3

I don't understand that you're seldom nominated. Your work is excellent and very unique. It must be annoying, seeing a total newbie like me, who doesn't have talent and skills even close to yours being nominated after such a short time, and even though I'm absolutely happy about it, I'm also kind of embarrassed... You are nominated too, though, and rightly so! Congrats to that!

No annoyance - I've long ago accepted that my artwork does not appeal to many. I'm very happy for you that you are creating art and having such a great time. I encourage people to do art or any creative work - I love doing art.

Your icons are super I love this one of Buffy - a beautiful quality of delicacy.
