Last fall some of you that have been on here for a while may remember that I started a thread that had members tell about their Avatar. It was really fun to read. I went back and tried to pull up all of the posts but on some of the pages it says it does not exist. I was absent from CC for about 4 months this spring/summer and I have read that there was a crash, I have no idea what happened, would love to be filled in. Anyway I was able to look at some of the posts and some have changed their Avatars so I thought it would be fun to start over.

My Avatar is our oldest chihuahua, Peajib (we have 3). She will be 6 this November, That picture was taken when she was 6 weeks old, she weighted 8 ounces.

Jibbies (That's actually what we call her most of the time)

My avatar is generic b/c I'm not smart enough to figure out how to make my picture of my daughter meeting her hero Pooh into an avatar.

. . . Hey Jibbies . . . nice to see you back again . . . (where were you, we missed you) . . . yes there was a big crash and the only thing lost was about 4 or 5 months (can't remember exactly) of posts from around the end of October . . . it happened during an update . . . . very sad (but could have been much worse) . . . this thread has sprung up in the mean time . . .
. . . so hopefully you will get a chance to catch up . . . and like I said welcome back . . . we missed you . . . icon_biggrin.gif

. . . here is a post that speaks to the crash (just an fyi) . . .

Not that it really needs a lot of explanation, but my avatar is of my two daughters. They are 4 1/2 and 6. The pic was taken on a Sunday afternoon in the edge of a cornfield that borders our property.

My avatar is my rabbit, Midnight, smelling the flowers from my sister's wedding. I was really just trying to use up the film in my camera by taking pictures of the flowers and he just jumped into place! It's one of my favorite pictures of him icon_smile.gif

my avatar is of my cat Cheddar who passed away suddenly a year ago. My dh and I looked for two years for a male orange cat that we could name Cheddar Colby Jack. In the pic he is about six months old, six months after that he passed away in his pile of toys from what we can only guess a heart disorder. I took it really hard and miss him still very much a year later. To some people cats are just pets, but to my dh and me, they are our furkids.

Well, mine is a frog that I found online. I love frogs AND turtles. Have 2 frog tats on my ankles. Met TCturtleshell here one day and started talking--told her that I loved turtles and anyone that had a turtle avatar was OK with me. Found that she lived only an hour away and we have been friends ever since. LOVE MY TURTLESHELL!!!!

I found a free cat silhouette avatar (I'm a cat person.) that I liked. I was going to use one of a cat holding a cupcake, but it was too big. I used it on my cafemom website. I am a black cat lover and the sihouette reminded me of my cat Zeus. He was my bestest cat ever. He was our first "baby". He "talked" to me and followed me around the house. He didn't really like anyone except for me and my husband (and only one of my DH's friends). He was a weirdo kitty...he liked to play in the water and drank water directly from the tap. He liked cucumbers, watermelon, strawberries and tomatoes!

He had to be put down in January of 2004. He was in terrible pain and there wasn't much they could do for him (recurring problem with crystals in his urethra). It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make and I felt terrible guilt for the longest time. II stayed by his side until he was passed. Two weeks later my grandfather died. It was terrible. Took me years to cope.

Mine is of my first and only cake that I've uploaded on CC. I've been admiring cakes on CC and reading the forums for a year now and I finally decided that I need to start decorating cakes instead of just learning about them. It was for my son's b-day. It was a big hit. I see all the flaws but my son and his friends were speechless. The moment was priceless. icon_smile.gif

I've been here a while but I've recently changed my name to match the new name launch of my online chocolate biz.

I had a graphic designer take my idea for my new company, Conjure Chocolate, and create the logo.

Sidenote: For our Halloween wedding years ago my husband, a potter, created 3 cauldrons that were used at the reception to hold beverages.

I found it fitting to use a cauldron as my logo since all things magical represents me and my pastry. Chocolate is Magic.

So basically life!

My Avatar is a cake that I made for a 4th of July party. It was my favorite cake that I have done and also the most time consuming!

It's something of an inside joke. Our secretary at work is positively freaked out by clowns, so I put up a photo of my 3D clown cookies. When I brought a bunch of different 3D cookies to work, she refused to go into the lunchroom until all the clowns had been eaten.
