      ahhh congratulations, though! it's been a long road. i'm sure you'll do wonderful :) good luck! yeah, there are - kara has just come back, bea is around, lubi pops in every now and again (though she makes graphics regularly on the side, we're still best friends haha) and sami is hoping to come back once things have slowed down a bit. shannon and krys are around as well, and enya is here, but that goes without saying. we all miss you, of course :3

      I miss all of you too! It's strange to be so out of the loop with graphics after being in the middle of it for so long!

  9. Excellent work, admins and staff! You've perked the site right up.
