  1. New affiliates for Northstar: Lunatheria and Dreams in Digital
  2. New affiliates for Hakanai: In-Rainbows, Noonvale and Otaku (also reorganized the FLs displayed on the Owned section so the TFL listings show up first)
  3. New link added to Christopher Nolan (made a button for NolanFans.com, the best Nolan fansite out there)
  4. Finished icons for Primavera: All three of Mal’s (sent last week), Ekaterina’s, Jess‘, and both of Jef’s. ♥

After a year of wearing that lovely Carol Danvers layout, Fine Print finally has a new design! It may look a bit too dark probably because I designed it in the dark OTL, so I should probably tweak it a bit more later. Header photo was edited from a cap off their Map of the Soul: 7 (2020) jacket shoot, © BigHit Entertainment. I added icons to break the textual monotony, and to quote my own tweet, “the good thing about group shots is that one can make multiple icons from the same picture.” xD It’s also my first time to try out the Smooth Scrolling effect, which for the most part works for this one-page version since it has sections that needed to be identified in the URL.

I also edited my About and Design pages on Northstar.nu—I cut out a few sentences to make them (hopefully) less rambly. I also added some new links of sites I admired on the Exits section. Then I updated the coding structure of /log, then added Primavera to the sidebar and Mayumi to the links.

Next, I added Lilac, Turquoise, and Silver as affiliates to Pastel Colours , which I is now listed under Minty.nu. ♥

Finally, I integrated Mal’s list with the current Pancakes list (also moved to Minty.nu), which is now up to 948 members! I hope to reach 1,000 members soon! (((o(*°▽°*)o)))

  1. Added the three new 100×50 codes to Dick Grayson because forgot the last time. xD I also added new codes to Pastel Colours because I was in the mood. ;) I do need to add that writeup soon!
  2. I added Katie’s sites as my collective and fanlisting affiliates (Lewis to Elementary, and lavender to Pastel Colours). :)
  3. Primavera also had a revised set of guidelines, so that signups no longer close, and people can just jump in and join whenever they want, as long as they keep the layouts until the deadline. Successive site enlistment is also now possible. (⌒‿⌒) Lastly, I also did a site directory cleanup, so my folders in cPanel now look a lot more streamlined and less migraine-inducing. It took me a couple of hours, at least, but it was worth it. ♥
  4. Small joys: Today I got approved for the Ranma character FL, so I’m merging that and Akane with the Ranma/Akane FL. (^▽^) #OTP #wishlister
  5. Also finally got off my lazy ass and decided to write a few sentences on the About section of the Cappuccino FL. \(≧▽≦)/ Did a few CSS tweaks and page edits while I was there.

Been working on this since yesterday, so I can now officially unveil it here, thanks to interest from some peeps at the TFL Boards. I live in a country with only two seasons, so I’m eternally fascinated with spring, my love for which is most likely due to the color (green is my absolute favorite). 

Join if your site needs a spring revamp!

TBH this is my favorite project, to date. It also didn’t take me that long to conceptualize the design—I pretty much just threw together some stock photos together that I have previously saved, added that illustration by Yuumei, and added a pattern. ^^; Don’t you just love it when things come together? #inspired XD

I also really like the URL. The site is the perfect use for my domain Minty.nu, which I never had a plan for and therefore never used since its purchase (⌒_⌒;) I bought it for a whopping one euro last December because NuNames had a sale, and I thought, why not? ¯_(ツ)_/¯ I was initially going to use it for purely email accounts, and went for it because this shade of green has always been my favorite way before the pastel fad came out. (You should see the number of mint green items I have in my house and closet.) I was intending to retire this after a year, but the more I look at how neat and short the URL is, even with subdomains, the more enamored I become with it. (That is in fact the main reason why I bought it—I wanted a shorter-looking URL, since typing “Northstar.nu” for site addresses can be tiresome). So I’ve decided to keep it (yay!) and turn into yet another secondary domain, perhaps for quirky small design projects that strive to keep things fresh? :3
