Layouts, Codes, Tutorials, & Resources

Hey there, I'm Tess!

Welcome to my blog; I make lots of different layouts, codes, tutorials, and other resources for Insanejournal and Dreamwidth RPers! There's a lot to choose from and brand new content goes up every week!

Take a look around, and don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it!

Can't get enough resources? Why not subscribe to my Patreon for exclusive monthly content, or support the creation of more content by leaving a tip on Ko-Fi! ♡

Need an invite?

If you're unable to comment on my journal to ask for help now that anon has been turned off due to serious spam issues, don't worry! Just shoot me an email and I'll send you an invite code for Insanejournal. I've got plenty to spare!

Please Note:

I do not offer assistance with any sites other than IJ and DW unless it is for general HTML and CSS (ie. custom hosted pages and similar.) I cannot convert a code to a new site's rules because there are a lot of niche RP sites, and I have no way of knowing each one's limitations and caveats. Sorry about that!

Make sure to check out the auction!

New auction items!

Due to demand, new items have been added to the auction! Don't miss out, because I've added three new custom layout items, two custom code items, icon sets, and even a custom website design on the off chance that someone's in need of one for their business or personal site!

If you'd like to donate services as well, feel free to comment on this entry!

Auction Update!

We're 24 hours into the auction and we're already 5% of the way to the goal—you guys are the best!! ♥

QUESTION TIME! If I were to post a new item lot midway through the auction, what types of items would you be interested in bidding on? These can be repeats of items I've already posted (from myself) or new ideas! We won't be doing new IJ shop items (renames/coupons), but I'm more than happy to hear other input!

Some ideas I had were: another couple of custom layouts, a couple of custom codes offered by myself, possibly some photo editing or InDesign mockups from myself. I also have a few really good account names?? Is that weird lmao???

Please note: Upping the amount of items in the auction is not free, so please only offer suggestions if you intend to bid on at least one of the items you'd like to see put into the auction. Thank you for understanding!

August Updates!

Hey guys! This month, due to the house-buying-moving situation, things are going to be a little different. All free posts for August will be posted between now and Monday, August 5th so that I'll have the rest of the month free to work on the move.

PATREON
Patreon rewards will be as usual!

FUNDRAISER & RAFFLE
The fundraiser details have changed and will ideally be posted on Saturday, August 10th. Here's the deal: Since I wanted to include a raffle with this fundraiser so that I could give back to you guys in the process of raising money to help with the house expenses, this will be an auction instead. This is for legal purposes lmao.

On the subject of this fundraiser and raffle auction, I'm excited to announce that we've gained an extremely talented digital artist who is offering custom art of your favorite characters as an auction item!

Note: If any of you lovely creators on the site would like to donate a service or item to the auction, you can contact me at any time before August 10th.

Big Updates!

Personal Health
As some of you saw on Patreon and might have noticed here, I've been very slow the last couple of weeks. I have some reproductive health things going on, but no worries: It's absolutely not life threatening; I just had to have a procedure done that left me in a lot of discomfort and pain, and I was having a hard time doing anything on the pain management they gave me for it. Everything's healing up just fine, and I'll be done with it soon! In the meantime, I'm feeling a lot better so I can at least function while dealing with it now, haha.

June Patreon Rewards
Due to the above, as per my previous Patreon update, rewards for last month will be posted by Wednesday, July 10th, and I can't wait to get them up!

The Big Surprise Project
I hinted last month during free projects that I have a new larger project coming up, and I'd very much hoped it would be up for June, but given all the doctor trips, medication, and some extremely exciting news below, I'm going to hold off on it until September and resume focusing on more typical content for the time being. Don't worry though, it's coming and it's gonna be extremely rad!!

Extremely Exciting News
After years of struggling—roach-infested apartments, crashing with friends, unsafe buildings and neighborhoods; you name it, we've been there—thinking we'd never be able to even start doing this, we're buying a house! We found one we love that's well below our budget and, fingers crossed that everything goes the way it should, we close at the end of the month! This is exciting and terrifying and I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing, but we could never have done with without your support in my work, and all the help we've gotten from our closest friends.

So thank you so much. You were the reason we could afford our rent, and now you're the reason we can pay our mortgage. I could cry. I have cried.

Fundraiser & Raffle
To kill two birds with one stone, I decided the best plan to tackle all the standard Crap, We Need ________ For the House type stuff after the move would be to run a fundraiser! But I wanted to make it fun and to still give back to you guys too, so there will also be a HUGE raffle included, featuring custom-to-you prizes from myself, two wonderful graphic designers, and another lovely code maker—as well as the chance to win IJ rename packs and coupons! Full details will be posted at the start of August. (Spoilers: There will be a chance to win a game bundle in this raffle.)

So, in closing, my health's been rude but I'll be fine and I'm getting better, the next two months are going to be insane but I'm still going to be posting content as usual, and I cannot wait to put up our fundraiser page and post all the details and HUGE list of prizes for the raffle! Thank you all again, so very much. ♥

The Future of Sanity

Sanity features a wide array of features, ranging from aesthetic to repairing broken features where possible, to adding new features—and there's more to come! That's where you guys come in: So that I can gauge how best to prioritize future updates, if you could so kindly rank the following potential* features based on desire to have them, I'd be really grateful!

Sanity is now FREE!



Sanity is now FREE! Thank you guys so much for helping me reach the goal to make this happen. I'll be adding some needed updates to the Chrome version this month (June 2019), and then I'll add them to the Firefox version and put it up in their extensions! You can install it on Chrome here, and read more about this project at [info]sanity!

UPDATE #1 Round one of updates will be live as soon as Chrome finishes processing the new version, so be sure to update your extensions if Chrome doesn't automatically prompt you! View the full list of repairs, additions, and a new feature!

UPDATE #2 Minor update to the extension (seriously so teeny lmao.) Also, see this thread for troubleshooting ideas if you've installed the extension and it isn't taking effect.
