Thrifty Tips – She’s free, but not cheap

thrifty tips - free not cheap 1Here’s the first post of what might become yet another new series on my blog – Thrifty Tips. Every once in a while, I like to go and hunt for quality freebies or cheapies, and I think, they do deserve some space on my blog, too.

thrifty tips - free not cheap 2

When I put together my last post, I needed a few avatars for the second picture. Not too many people were around to help, so I had to dig out an older, unused account of mine. Her look was terribly dated, and she received a makeover, which was completely free and turned out very well, if I may say so myself.
Now, she isn’t one of my characters. There’s no story behind this girl and she doesn’t even have a name. But I think, she’s cute as a button, even if she’s a bit on the young side.

Oh, and thanks to Helena Stringer for pointing out the free skin on Plurk!

Ion – Growing Pains

ion - growing painsGrowing up isn’t easy and Ion is at a difficult age. Sometimes, he feels like an adult. On the other hand, he is not yet ready to let go of the treasures of his childhood. Luckily, he has a cosy spot to keep all things that have been and still are dear to him. Little trinkets he collected all over the world, while travelling with his parents.
Being an avid gamer, Ion also collects retro video games, and unlike many adult hoarders, he still enjoys playing them.
