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!
