I am very sorry to inform all of you that stay_inspired is going to have to close. I have just recently had something very major and very time-consuming arise in my life and I need to leave fandom and online communities in order to really focus on this. If/when I return, I will be happy to start this community up again. I am also willing to hand the community over to someone else if they would like to run it.

Thank you all for your support and understanding, and I'm so sorry if I have let any of you down.

Your mod, Cora

I was feeling nostalgic today, and I decided to use that and make some Lion King Gifs for Fest #2 at stay_inspired.

Hey there!

I sat around for a while trying to decide what I wanted to do for this fest and at first I thought I might write something, but I decided showing was better than telling, though there will probably be a bit of both.

I grew up in Brooklyn, New York and my childhood was filled with games, toys, kick the can, and the smell of honeysuckle. So below are some icons of things that remind me of how I spent my childhood and what sticks out most to me. Enjoy!

Greetings, everyone!

Week one at stay_inspired just ended, and I must say, so far things are looking great! Icons and graphics seem to be the most popular medium so far, and I just want to encourage everyone to get involved no matter what medium you work best with! Hopefully coming up here we can get your creative juices flowing if we haven't already.

More on this week's activities!Collapse )

Keep your eyes peeled! Late tonight or early tomorrow a new fest post will go up, and it will be one of our larger ones. Get ready to play!

My childhood was filled with a lot of the simple things: namely, toys that kids don't necessarily use anymore, and old-school looking stuff. I share my favorites in this post.

I was pretty excited when I remembered about Adventures in Wonderland. I had limited pictures at first until I realized it was on youtube! I loved this show growing up and I had a great time creating these icons out of it!

Because everyone needs icons that remind them that the 90s were twenty years ago. My childhood was composed of Saturday Morning Cartoons, one of them being Pokemon. (No, I actually got in trouble twice due to Pokemon. Once in first grade for watching too many episodes before school and arriving late, and a second time for tossing a plastic pokeball at my sister's head haha.) Enjoy the icons, comment and credit schways schways</lj> if you take any.
