Iron & Ivy Designs

New and Noteworthy

March 26, 2001

This week's graphic set is called Templar. I fell in love with the warm, glowing colors of a fractal I created and I just had to use it here.

Take care, and enjoy!

March 11, 2001

For some reason, I seem to make my interfaces in a completely different style from the rest of my usual designs. Don't know why this happens, and this week's interface, The Key, is no exception. It's kinda creepy if you ask me, but I like it. :)

I'm off to work in the garden. See you next week!

New Fractal Kaleidoscope to celebrate the arrival of Spring. Made in the colors of the periwinkles that are blooming in my garden. Spring Has Sprung!

February 25, 2001

You'll find a new set in the Fractal Kaleidoscope section called, "Illumine". Isn't it amazing what fractals can do? (happy sigh...) Anyway, I called this set Illumine because it sorta, kinda reminds me of the illuminated manuscripts so lovingly created by those monks of old. Makes me want to visit the Cloisters in NYC again. :)

February 18, 2001

There's a new set called "Maroon & Teal" waiting for you in the Quickie section.

See you next week. :)

February 11, 2001

Happy Anniversary, Phil!

This week I offer a graphic set that, I think, looks very much like branded leather. I didn't intend for it to look that way, but I always take advantage of happy accidents. :) It's called "Western Star" and you'll find it in the Sets section.

Until next week...

February 4, 2001

An interface named "Blaze" awaits you in the Interface section.

See you next week. :)

January 29, 2001

I'm healing up very nicely-- I can tell because my husband is spoiling me less and less every day. ;) Thank you all for your kind e-mails. I really appreciate them.

This week's set is called "Plaid". A bit dark in color, but I like it. Hope you do too.

Be well, and I'll see you next week with more graphics.

January 22, 2001

I had a bit of a set back and wasn't able to spend much time with my graphics last week. I had to undergo emergency surgery and, as a result, spent most of my time sleeping and healing. I'm slowly starting to return to my PC and Photoshop, and I hope to be back to my regular self very shortly.

This week I offer a Quickie called "Pumpkin & Spice". Take care and see you next week.

January 15, 2001

I'm back from vacation, well rested and bursting with creative ideas. I thoroughly enjoyed my time off, though I missed you guys. :) This week's set is called "Sunny" and, well, if you like yellow and green I guess you'll enjoy it.

See you next Sunday!

December 19, 2000

Hello everyone. It's a bit late, but here is my newest interface, "Holiday Lights". I'll be on a little vacation for the rest of December. Christmas preparations are taking up all of my free time, but I'll be back with a new graphic set on January 14th of the new year.

I wish you all a wonderfully happy holiday season. See you next year!

December 10, 2000

There is another interface waiting for you called "The Bracer". You'll find it in the Interface section. No surprise there... :) I'm off to make some hot cocoa-- see you next week!

December 3, 2000

I'm going interface crazy. Yup, this week "Kite" awaits you in the Interface category. Have a look, and have a great week.

November 27, 2000

In the Interface section, you'll find my newest offering of the week, "Tuscany". I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am sick, sick, sick of turkey! Until next week...

November 19, 2000

This week, I offer a set called "Rusted", created in my typical mix of Medieval/Renaissance/Gothic/Huh?/Whatever styles. :) Have a great Thanksgiving, everyone. Be happy, and see you next week.

November 12, 2000

What would I do without fractals to play with? I certainly would never be able to create graphics like this. This week's interface is called, "Spine", another of my so-ugly-it's-pretty type graphics of which I'm so fond.

Until next week...

November 5, 2000

Got another new toy to play with. The invasion has begun!

See ya's!

October 29, 2000

Check the Interface catagory for this week's newest addition. Yes, it's the ubiquitous, shiny-metalic-looking Interface. I just had to make my own version. Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

October 22, 2000

This week, I created an interface called, "Our Wedding". Guess what the theme is?

Until next week...

October 16, 2000

I know, I know, I'm a day late, but better late than never. I've a good excuse though: my sister-in-law got married on Saturday, and I had to travel to NY for a week. While I was there, I went off computers cold-turkey. It was rough, but I managed... Anyway, congratulations Joy and Dave! The entire day was lots of fun, you both looked absolutely gorgeous, and I made a damned fabulous bridesmaid, if I do say so myself! ;)

This week's set is called "Poppies" because, well, it makes me think of poppies-- though the graphic looks nothing like a real poppy... Just humor me, folks.

See y'all next week.

October 7, 2000

I just had to make a graphic set celebrating my favorite month of the year. My husband, who's known for years and years about my favorite month, just gave me my annual Happy October's present: a kick-ass 19", flat screen monitor. Thanks, hubby-- you rock!!

So, without further ado, <drum roll...> this week's graphic set: "Happy October" Made with love, and care with the help of my new gift.

Until next week...

October 1, 2000

I'll be the first to admit that I didn't know what I was thinking when I created this week's interface, "Alien Bone". I was just playing around in my usual way, when this... thing... appeared on my screen. I think it's kind of fun, in an ugly sort of way.

Have a wonderful October! See you next week.

September 23, 2000

Another Quickie set this week: Blue & Pink. Yeah, the color combination is kinda strange, but I was feeling a bit playful. And, besides, I happen to like strange... :)

More next week. Take care.

September 16, 2000

The set of the week is another Fractal Kaleidoscope called, "Autumn Tapestry." I'm soooo happy that it's finally getting cool outside. In just a few short weeks it will be October, my favorite month of the year, (you really needed to know that, right?) and I can't wait. October usually puts me in such a good mood, as does autumn in general. Sigh... I love this time of year.

See you next week with more graphics. Be happy.

September 10, 2000

Made a new set in the Kaleidoscope section called, "Frost." I was in the mood for something wintery-- a reprieve from the horrible drought and heat of summer. So get your softest flannel blanket and take a look.

Enjoy, and see you all next week.

September 3, 2000

The news page was getting way too long, so I decided wipe it clean. You can read the old news here if you're so inclined.

This week, I made a Quickie called "Lavender & Cream" Have a look-see, why don'cha?

Now I'm off to my latest addiction: EverQuest. All I have to say about this game is, Why wasn't I informed earlier?! Oh my goodness, I can't seem to stay away from it-- I even dreamt about it two nights in a row. Heh. Love it, love it, love it. :)

Hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend. Take care, and see you next week.
