Final Message for

This is Amy's father. As of November 30, 2012 @ 3:15 P.M. Amy passed away. She was diagnosed with Adrenal Cancer five months ago and the treatments failed to help her. It is a rare cancer that had little other treatment. I don't know how to pass this along to her web site fans other than this, but she would have wanted you all to know. We will allow her website to stay up for the foreseeable future as it stands, for all to enjoy, but obviously there would be no further updates to it.

Regards, and best wishes to all of those that loved her
- Scott

I am so scared right now. I'm going into the hospital today I think and I still don't have my insurance card. I have a paper saying I have something like insurance but I can't find it and should be getting a card but I don't know. Will they have to admit me anyway. I'm so scared and in pain. I've also messed up my Facebook beyond belief. Everything is just a complete mess.

In which Amy updates about her cancer

Hello again. I have an update on the tumor... and the news is not particularly good. I have Adrenocortical Carcinoma in stage 4</a> meaning that it has spread to my lungs as well. Currently the survival rate is 25%-35% after five years, which I don't quite understand since the there are two adrenal glands and you only really need one. I will have a lot of questions for the doctor tomorrow. How exactly do 65% of people die within the five years when you have two Adrenal glands. I'll have to ask the doctor that question. I will survive this for now, I have no doubt about that. I am just worried about the mess I will be when it is all over, only to have a very high likelihood of it coming back. Anyway, thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I know I am hoping for some really good luck and it means a lot to read your comments.

I have lost another 20 pounds in two weeks. That is not good by the way.

In which Amy celebrates Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day everyone. I'm really proud of myself. I managed to make my mom a great brunch, a grilled steak and shrimp dinner, and a delicious butterscotch pudding dessert all while being in terrible pain from passing a kidney stone. I'm going to bed now.

In which Amy updates

Updates @ got a new layout in the beginning of February featuring Miyu from Vampire Princess Miyu. It's a pretty simple layout, but at least it was something different.

Painted Love : new layout with help from the people at remixers

Foxy : new layout, new content

Locks of Love : new website created for the amassment General Site Challenge with a layout created for the remixers first Remix challenge

In which Amy updates

It has been a while, but I've finally updated again. There is a new layout, new link buttons, and a different format for my network page. I've wanted to shake things up for a while now, but I just now decided to stop being lazy and actually do it.

I also did some link buttons for the amassment Button exchange. What I try to do when there are things like that is wait until the big rush is over and the first several people have had a chance to post. Then I see if there are people who come in a little later and comment or make something for them. The first people usually get the most attention (naturally), so I like to help balance it out. BTW, if I made a button for you, I don't expect anything back. I'm sure everyone involved will have lots of buttons to make.

I updated a couple of my icons too. I really like this new Tori icon and I decided to try something different for my anime icon.

That reminds me. Most of you probably saw my new site up at the amassment One-Month, One Page Marathon, but I've changed it up a little bit since then. My new site is Devils Food, a one-page tribute to Mrs. Lovett of Sweeney Todd fame. Although it's mostly about the movie character, I did some research on the original penny dreadful and other versions, so it might be informative in that sense too. Take a look if you have time.

In which Amy tries to create a new layout for Experience Pearls

So I've been working on updating a few of my older sites and I decided to create a new layout for my Clover site. I'm sort of pleased with the results, but I'm not quite sure. There are a few things that I think could be better. First of all, there is the title. Is the font OK? How could I do it better? Second is the black behind her wing on the upper right side--does it look good? I want to do something a little more visually complex than the other layouts I've done recently, but is it too busy? I don't know. Thoughts?

edit: Thank you to everyone who commented. I've made a few changes so I will post the new preview below the cut.
