UPDATE MAY 2018;
I got an email about the site redesign which is not working for me. I can see palettes and not patterns and I cannot post on forums. I use Opera (a Chromium-type) browser and switched to Edge (which I don't like) to see if that helped. Edge was worse because those freakish ads busted through the ad blocker. They can't get through with Adguard ad blocker, but I am also not seeing the captcha boxes to be able to comment on forum posts or create post. So, Anyways, I thought my troubles were over, but they have only just begun. (Sad Face). I'll check in in a few days to see if anything improved.
It's been a minute (about a year) since I logged. I kept checking clandestine-style to see if some technical problems were fixed. It SEEMS that they have been. Yay!! Not only is my adblocker (adguard) blocking those ugly home page ads (or are they gone? maybe the blog posts are now paying for the site?? someone fill me in, please), but ALSO it seems that we can use COPASO again!! Double yay!! Hopefully my life and my internet will cooperate and I'll be able to log on more now.
COLOURLovers: IF I don't have time to send thanks every time I log on: THANKS THANKS AND THANKS for the LOVE!
To all TEMPLATE MAKERS: Thanks so much for creating something for me to color. From the whimsical to the most intricate, I cannot thank you enough for sharing your creativity here! And, for sharing your tips in tutorials. AND, If I love your template, don't be shy about putting the badge here on my page. I Really want others to **Love a Template**, too!
I adore purples/violets, greens, oranges, and eggplant will stop me in my tracks. I like most other colors; there are only a few that I dislike to use, but I won't say which...
Thanks to my 500+ followers!
I love to love, but I don't usually "fave". It doesn't mean I don't love your work (I just have a *special* system): I do indeed really love what I Love.
Also, I randomly follow. Why? 'Cause this ain't Pinterest, baby! I mean, on Pinterest if you follow a board or all boards you see Everything and then it takes forever to look at your main page. Once I figured out that Following here was mainly a show of support, I decided to hit Follow on more CLs.
Please leave badges, if you like. I love to see them! I love to get to enjoy your work again. (And, honestly, I like to love, a Lot, so sometimes I forget what I loved till you leave me your Lovely Badges.)
I play my own little game: I see a palette I love, then I love my favorite color in the palette. Then, I love my favorite palette made with that color and so on. That's why sometimes you may find that I've loved some long lost palette of yours. The colors lead me to you. (in a non-stalking way!)
I love palindromes and can't wait till I get a palindrome on my odometer. I'm about to have 124,421! Yay for me!
Some gifts. (one isn't technically dedicated to me, but it's beautiful) Thanks so much for these!
From my sister:
