Everyone has such cute avatars with their names--where do you get them? The avatar choices available in my profile are just different smiley faces. Thanks.

Go to google.com and do an image search.

You could also type in keywords "animated images"...I am sure you will find one that you like!

I just finished making my own, and I'm so happy with it! I photo-shopped two clip-art images from microsoft.com.

It took a ridiculously long time, but it was fun! If you can't find the perfect one out there, just make your own!

APcakes...that one is really cute! TC...that one is perfect for you!!! I love turtles too! My kids had a box turtle for a pet and I did not want to let him go because I felt like he was good luck! We let him go in the flower bed where we moved...Anyway, everytime I see your avatar...I think of that turtle! icon_razz.gif

Hey, thanks! I'm happy you like it too! icon_smile.gif
I love seeing each person's avatar, especially when they're unique - I'd love to hear the story behind some of them.

Here's my little story, just for fun: my name is April, and my family called me "Apey" as a little girl. (I know, not very flattering, but it was a term of endearment, so it's okay with me...) Now my little boy's name is Patrick, so I thought "Apey" and AP would go together. And monkeys are some of my favorite creatures, because they are so fascinating to watch, and so smart, and I'm sure they would love to get their hands on some cake!

What about you all?

I used a search engine and found so many it took me awhile to find one that was the right size (they have to be 6 KB or less) and then to pick the one I wanted.

Gma, very cute! I know, it was hard to make it fit in the 6kb requirement! Mine turned out a little fuzzy as a result, but oh well...

APcakes...that is a cute story behind yours! My daughter actually chose mine...she is a cheerleader. She has started playing volleyball...and wants me to change it to a "girly" volleyball player...however...she has not seen one that she likes yet!!! icon_razz.gif

i just made mine after a few way too big file sizes. my username has been my username for everything since i started college when i was into the 'old-school' Rainbow Brite and the japanese anime Sailor Moon. I made this cool avatar to use my name and the pics of each, but it was 36k after all was said and done...bummer. so, i came up with the one at the left here.

I found mine at google search. Just liked it because it matched the name, and how I love carmel, especially on ice-cream, and ice-cream makes me think of cake...ummmmmm!!!
