When I was preparing for NaNoWriMo, I noticed that a lot of blogs were showing these dull, grey word count meter buttons. While functional, they didn’t appeal to me, so I did an open search and found gorgeous, free buttons on the blog of Svenja Liv. I blogged about them, and as a result, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Svenja’s beautiful widgets popping up all over the place.
Not only has Svenja provided these gorgeous buttons for writers, but she has also put in, what I know is a massive amount of work, on providing attractive spreadsheets for counting your progress through the year and tracking your NaNoWriMo status. The artwork behind them is stunning.
From her bio: “Svenja is a self-taught artist, German by birth but living in Ireland. Having completed her M.A. in anthropology, she now works as a freelance artist and writer. Her work includes mainly portraits and fantasy-themed pieces, and her main media are pencils and digital work.”
On behalf of all of us who are proudly displaying and using your beautiful work, Svenja, thank you! You can follow Svenja’s blog here; follow her on Facebook (check out her Johnny Depp work, it’s better looking than he is); or visit her portfolio website.
Svenja, please take this badge below and use it as you wish. The rules for passing this Award on are very simple:
- You are welcome to give it out as many times as you like, but it is only to be given to a maximum of one person per blog post. If you wish to give multiple rewards, please space the blog posts by at least a week so the sincerity is maintained.
- Introduce the person; say how they encourage, help or inspire you; then link to their work and/or social media profiles. There may be a specific post you wish to link to which helped you. It’s up to you.
- Please publicise your award post to Twitter or Google Plus using the hashtag #writtenkindness so that others can find and follow the award winners. You are also welcome to add your Award recipient/s to the Hall of Fame which is on this link.
