of (small) achievements

Hi there guys, it’s been a while. ^_^
I don’t have much to talk about this time, I just wanted to “celebrate” the new version (something that’s related to the title of this post) as it means something amazing.

First, though, let me introduce version 13 properly: called Lake Moon, it features a gorgeous moon over a lake (I think it’s a moon…it looks like a moon to me…oh G0d… LOL) artwork I’ve had on my HDD/SSD for a very long time set upon one of my top favorite stylesheets; I’m super happy of how it turned out, and especially that I got to make it….and here we come to why it’s reason to celebrate.

I’ve had this image stored on my first HDD then SSD for many, many years, I believe for almost as long as Skyborn has been open; during this long time I tried several times to make a design with it, but I always ended up discarding the results and going with other images….sometimes with premade layouts entirely. A few times I thought to chuck the image, as I was getting tired of it, but decided to keep it….which turned out to be the right decision as today, after many multiple years and fails, I finally got to make a worthy layout with it. I know objectively it’s a very small thing, but after so many years and above all failed attmepts this feels like a prett big achievement to me….of which I’m quite proud, hence the celebration—which is actually just the dedicated post. LOL
Sorry for the (probably) boring post, but I’m very giddy about this so I wanted to share this with you—and remember, if you don’t like the layout it’s totally fine (constructive criticism is always welcome).

I have to go now, as I wanna see if I can manage to make some new tutorials for Skyrose; see you on next (proper) entry.
Take care guys, and have a wonderful Sunday. ♥
