How’s It Going?

Well, I’ve been using the CFSpark online AI tool to create my own graphics and I also purchased a couple of monthly credits so I wouldn’t have to wait in line (so to speak, lol) in order to wait¬† to create my art. In other words; no long lines and I can get my graphics created asap.

Okay, so that’s the good news about using the tool. Now before I even purchased the credits I was able to download my graphics privately. That means that you can download your own graphics and not publish them to the site so others can also download them also. FYI – they are solely yours to do with as you please.

Well, soon after my credit subscription was finished (and I didn’t update it) the privilege of downloading my own graphics privately was no longer available to me UNLESS I purchased more credits with a monthly subscription. Now what’s upsetting about this is that I already have a yearly subscription for the site. So, you would think that whatever I made using that tool I’d be able to download them without having to publish them also.

Anyway, about a week ago I canceled one of my yearly subscriptions to the site. I had purchased 2 years but they would only reimburse my 2nd year subscription because I was already using the first one. I said, fine. I got no problem with that. The reason I wanted to end my 2nd subscription was because I could no longer download my own graphics that I created privately. I thought that was pretty crappy that all of sudden I couldn’t do that after my subscription for the credits had ended. It’s just seemed like they wanted more money from me and that was upsetting.

Of course they probably didn’t see it that way because they are always updating the site with new stuff and such and more rules in order to use all those gadgets. But, whatever, lol.

Removed Gallery

Sorry guys but I removed the gallery from my site. It was using too much bandwidth so I removed it. However, I do have a gallery online that you can find HERE with name tags added to it already. From now on that’s where you’ll find any tags that I have created with names added to them.

Thanks and hugs,

Group problems!

Hmm. Well, I heard it through the grapevine that groups.io have been deleting groups. I know I had tried to create a group a few weeks ago and it wouldn’t let me and after leaving a message at the groups.io help forum I found out that my email that I used to create the group was not allowing me to create any groups at all. I didn’t know this at the time so I went ahead and tried several times to create a new group and it was always the same. Always denied. And all because the word “tags” was in my email address.

Now, that got me thinking that it seems a little extreme to deny someone to create a group all because of the email address that they are using but that’s exactly what happened. So, if they are denying anyone with words like that then why wouldn’t they delete a group because the group had the word “tags” in the group name too? Makes you wonder doesn’t it?

And if you read groups.io terms of use it says they don’t allow groups that share graphics, email stationery or tags. So, if they don’t allow those type of groups and you created one at one time wouldn’t it make sense that they are deleting those groups too? I don’t know but it sure makes a lot of sense when you think about it like that.

So, I have decided to use my google groups as backups for my groups.io groups. If you’re a member of any of my groups.io groups please consider joining my google groups also. That way if groups.io does delete my groups in the future then your membership will be there in the google groups also.

And, here are the links to my google groups is anyone is interested:

My Group Has Moved!

My PaintShop Pro World group has moved to Groups.io
I found out that a lot of members were having trouble trying to join my google groups so I decided to move my psp group. If you’d like to join or visit the group here’s the link:
https://groups.io/g/PaintShopProWorld

Also, my tag group has changed as well. It is no longer called; “Taggers World”. The name has been changed to; “Mod Girl’s Spice Of Life”. And my tag group is still located at google because I tried to create a new group at groups.io for my tag group but it wouldn’t let me. Seems like they are not letting new groups get created like they used to. Hmm. Very weird but at least I can still use google groups (for now anyway).

Thanks for stopping by and hugs,

Gallery Updated!

Okay you guys, lol. I uploaded all the tags I have recently made from sending tag offers through 2 different groups. I have also deleted all these tags from my computer after uploading them all to the gallery. So, don’t ask me to re-upload any of the tags that have already been uploaded because I just don’t have them anymore and they are gone with the wind, lol.

The link to the gallery is above in case you missed it but you can also¬† CLICK HERE to visit the gallery if you’re too lazy to look, lol.

Take care and hugs, Mod Girl.

An Update

On Jan 12th of this month Hubs and I went down with Covid. I kept thinking I was doing better but in actuality I was not. I had to be admitted into the hospital because my breathing was beginning to worsen. I went into Urgent Care and they checked my breathing and the doctor said he didn’t like the sound of my right lung and was afraid it would collapse if we didn’t do something about it.

I was sent over to the hospital for xrays and after the doctors saw the xrays they admitted me right away. I was in the hospital for 4 days getting the help I needed to get over this nasty and life threatening illness. Even now that I am home and feeling better my breathing is still hard. I have been coughing up all this crap and that seems to help with the breathing. But I honestly don’t how much longer it will take before I am back to my old self.

Since I have been home I have been working on my new website called: Mod Girl Graphics. Before I fell ill I was making all sorts of graphics and wanted to add them to my site for anyone who would be interested in purchasing them. The graphics I have made the most are fairies but there are all sorts of graphics that I have also made too. You can check out my new site here:

Having Fun! How About You?

So, remember when I told you about the paid membership I have from CreativeFabrica.com? Well, they have this tool that members can use to make there own graphics and I have to tell you, it is so addictive! The past week I’ve been having so much fun making images it’s crazy, lol.

Now, the images I keep making all seem to be the same type because when I was making them I kept thinking to myself; “Would I use this image in my tag making?” That’s the main reason why I got the paid subscription in the first place. To use any images I downloaded (or made) for creating tags.

So, I have created a couple of tags using the images I created. They are fairies (which I love, lol) and I really like how they turned out. The tool to make the images isn’t all that easy to use to get the image just the way you want it to look . But after getting used to using the tools for awhile, I am very pleased by all the ones I’ve been making lately.

Here are the 2 tags I made using those 2 fairies I created and please let me know what you think about them. I might sell some of the images I create here at my site. Yes, when you create your own images with that tool you can do whatever you want with the images you make. Nice huh? Lol.

Anyway, here’s the previews. Thanks for looking and hugs,

Updates and more updates!

Well, a lot has been happening lately so I thought I had better make a post about it here at my blog, lol. So, let’s get started shall we?

The first update is about my scrapbook shop. I closed it for good this time. Haven’t had any sales in the past few years so I thought it was time to shut the doors to my online shop.

Next, I purchased a paid membership at CreativeFabrica.com. I splurged and purchased the 1 year subscription so I now have plenty of time to search through the enormous amount of images there and download them whenever I feel like it.

Besides the paid subscription I also purchased some new PTU tubes to use in making my tags. I bought tubes from VeryMany, VM Artists, EleganceFly and Digital Art Heaven.

So, I got plenty of resources to use to make tags and I’ve been having a lot of fun using the images from CreativeFabrica.com to create new tags. Most of the images I’m using right now are from the Community area and some of the artwork is just fabulous! But the only draw back I see is that the images are all flattened jpg images and in order to use them with a transparent background I will need to tube them.

Which is okay by me but some of them are just fine as they are and I’m trying to come up with new ways to use them, lol. Creativity seems to be pouring out of me right now when making tags and I’m having so much fun making tags that it should be illegal, lol.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know what has been going on lately. I hope you have a wonderful and happy new year!
Take care and hugs,

Aren’t those the cutest bee’s you’ve ever seen?
I found them at CreativeFabrica.com and once I saw them I just knew they would make a cute tag!

Name Tag Gallery

Okay, so I decided it was about time I did something with all the name tags I have on my computer so I created a gallery to host them all. All these name tags have been deleted from my computer after they were added to the gallery. So, if you want any of these tags please don’t ask me later for any of them, lol. The only way you can get them now is by visiting the gallery and downloading them from there.

The link to the gallery is in my menu at the top of this page but you can also get there by clicking on the link HERE.

Thanks and hugs,

Reopen PSP Sharing Group!

I just wanted to let you all know that I reopened my paintshop pro sharing group. Also, I have changed the rules for this group where all members can share but we no longer allow forwarding emails from other groups to this one. The reason for this is because when you’re a member of many psp related groups, members tend to send the same exact stuff to ALL the other groups. So, you end up getting doubles and sometimes triples of the same emails in your inbox.

And with the new rules for the group you won’t have to worry about that anymore. And although sharing is required once a week, you don’t have to share anything if you don’t have anything to share. HOWEVER, sending an email through the group and saying; “Thank You” will be acceptable as a “share” from you each week.

Besides reopening my online groups at google groups I also opened up back up groups at Groups.io just in case. You never know what will happen in the future so having some sort of backup plan is always a good idea. Anyway, enough of the gab, lol. Here’s the link to the group if anyone is interested:
