Thanks to Hrdknight and Chaosbeast for their comments :)
Did you know that is has been over a year since I started this blog? I missed the actual anniversary due to the theft of my machine, but I think that now is as good a time as any to celebrate!
Yes one year of my captions having their own little place on the internet. Its been one hell of a blast coming up with all these things and its become part of my day to try and come up with the next set to get ready and upload here, that is how much I love doing this stuff!!
Three hundred and thirty seven (ish) original captions created and uploaded since I started this blog. I'd hate to think of how many words that comes too, though my best guestimate would be somewhere around the hundred thousand mark.
So perhaps its time I created a series of anniversary captions for you lovely lot to enjoy. Time to hit the drawing board!!

I've been busy of late but I'm hoping to get loads of captions up in the next couple of weeks before I head away for work. So lets see what I can do!!!
Thanks to everyone that had commented recently :)

Old friends have some of the weirdest demands on your life.....
Sorry its been a while since the last upload, still trying to get everything together and since I'm working more hours a week now, and most weekends, I really just have so little time to making captions. Well I'll have more time around september so yay!! Until then, I'll try to put up what I can.
One another note, the fourth edition of the haven quarterly is in the submission phase, so remember to pick up your copy when its released! Would you like me to add an advert or link on this blog to make it easier to get to?

Ancient spirits are not always as evil as they might appear to be
Well boys, girls and inbetweens, I know how much I've been negleting things here of late, and I hate not having been able to get anything up here but between being busy and trying to figure out how to restore my stolen and returned Mac to its previous condition, things have been falling by the wayside somewhat.
So to try and rectify this problem, I went through the files on my backup machine (a Dell I brought in error when I thought I'd been needing it for an Open University course, turned out I didn't but the machine has proven useful in allowing me to play the Dawn Of War games!!) and the files I had stored on it.
Now I obviously wouldn't have all my old pieces, my stories and everything else I normally work on, but I did have a stock of images I have yet to use for any caps. However, I was stuck on the programme to make them, since the trail of Comic Life had run out and I don't like its PC version anyway, and all I had left was GIMP i had downloaded but never used.
Thanks to Rachel's Haven and the toolbox for caption making it has there, I was able to muddle my way through the programme and make this caption!
Now I don't think this is one of my best ever and I honestly hate the fact that I had to use text to form a watermark since my logo was one of the things that was deleted from my Mac, but hey, at least I was able to make one again!!
Now I don't know when I'll get any more uploaded and created, but we'll see. I'm working on a new logo right now, one I hope will look much better than the old one I had made. So look out for that in the near future!!
So until next time, enjoy this caption and keep reading and commenting on everything I have here for you!
If you have any suggestions about changes you'd like to see on the site, anything that would make it easier to find your favourites or just to browse, content in captions or anything, please either leave a comment, send me an email (which can be found either here [i think] or on my profile at Rachel's Haven) or send me a PM at the Haven!
