Your idea of the bird and birdcage wallpaper sounds lovely for your bedroom to share with your sister. I'm not sure what size of a window you have in the room but if it is on the north or east side you may need to keep the other walls lighter in colour and use an eggshell finish. Since the wallpaper is your inspiration piece and I can't see the colours, you should try to match colours if you can from the paper. Duck blue could be used in the curtains, and shams/ cushions, if it's too dark to use as the wall colour. White or cream can be used on the trim but check your wallpaper colours. Why not purchase a vintage bird cage and paint it out in your electric blue or red to add some fun. I'm sure it will all come together nicely. Ask for some final advice before you buy the paint and perhaps get a sample first to try on the wall or a large paint sample. Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams paints have these. I wish you lots of fun with your project!

Hope everything went well! Darkness wouldn't necessarily be an issue; it depends on your windows and lighting too.

I guess our default strategy now is ctrl+a, ctrl+c on a comment just in case we lose it without it being posted. Last week I had to re-write a comment 3 times before I learned. :P

My one wish through being patient while the bugs are worked out and the spammers run off is that management would make a short statement.

Definitely.

I am all for being patient while much needed changes are made to the site, but the complete absence of communication is very disturbing.
I feel it is a lack of respect towards the community to just leave us worrying and guessing every. bloody. time.

We have sat out weeks of CL not working because of DoS-Attacks, we've experienced several (for us: surprise) shut-downs as updates were implemented, we have grappled with the buggy fallout of many of these updates - and never a comment, a warning, a heads-up, an anything from anybody in charge.

Are we not worth being informed?

And now I sit and wait to see if this comment will actually be posted. I have not been able to comment anywhere, not even my own profile, for days.

Came back after being gone for 2 years to this disappointment, Also, once again, experienced issues with Seamless Light errors. Captchas are a pain in the butt (especially when they make you click though 3 pages of pics); however, I understand the need for them.

Have you tried another browser, like Google Chrome? I just tried Firefox and BPM (basic palette maker) worked fine and BPM also worked fine with Chrome. How about Photocopa? Have you tried making palettes that way? I'm just trying to help - I know it can be frustrating.

I understand you are. We're all frustrated. :)
I seemed able to make a basic palette in IE, but some of the pages on the site (like the homepage and login) take so long to load that they occasionally just lock up and stay blank. Other ones load quickly. I don't have Chrome on this computer, - I'd have to try it later on my laptop when I can access it.

TBH, I don't think I ever used Photocopa for my palettes. It never quite did what I wanted, and 90% of my palettes aren't based off photos.
