Welcome to Moonflame Designs, a small design portfolio run by me (Presea, Melanie, whatever you prefer), since October of 2005. This website offers graphics as small as avatars to complete website layouts, along with tutorials, brushes, and other resources. More recent designs (post-2014) will be offered in a variety of formats, including avatars, wallpapers (for phone and PC), facebook cover pictures, and website layouts. Older designs have since been retired, but can still be viewed and used. Enjoy browsing, I hope you find something useful! And, if you don't, and would like to suggest something, send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org)! I love trying new things and I definitely have a lot to learn! Thanks for visiting! Don't be afraid to leave a comment! xoxo

So, in the words of a best friend, Moonflame has been quite like a plane without gas. It just sits here. And, though I do resent this fact, I am unable to find the time of day to update properly.
Honestly, whenever I feel as though I'm in a 'graphic-designing-mood,' I'm incapable of finding appropriate pictures to design with. Thus, I lose my initiative as quickly as I had gained it and a strong sense of lethargy kicks in.
Now, I would love to kick the sense, and maybe recapture some proper sleeping habits so I could develop the time, however, my lack of willpower somehow destroys the very desire to do any of the aforementioned things.
Don't get me wrong. I have absolutely no intention of closing down the site. Three years, not all strong, but heck if I'll deny it. Moonflame is my pride and joy, one thing I refuse to discontinue.
Some time is all I ask, though I know the three months that have passed seem like plenty. Some time to get the site back on its feet, with a fresh new layout and more graphics than I have ever provided before (and this includes Neopets graphics, as well).
So, although I hate to say it, and I don't hate much, I will be putting Moonflame Designs on an open hiatus. I refuse to close it down and stick a hiatus sign up only because I do have some graphics, and good or bad, someone may wish to use them.
I'm sorry for my inactivity and my lack of communication with my affiliates, who continue to update, often or not. I appreciate your tolerance with my absence thus far. However, if you feel as though you no longer wish to keep me as one of your affiliates, I understand completely.
This hiatus should last until the end of the school year, maybe even before once my load of work dies down.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and for understanding.
By the way, you will find a new bookmark and signature are up on the site. They were a few odds and ends I have been working on. I may update with a sign sometime during the week because I do have one waiting to be finished, as well as a layout. As for said layout, you can see it in progress here. If you have any suggestions for font style and placement of navigation, I'm all ears. . or eyes. I can't think of much to finish the layout, so some ideas would be great to hear. Thanks again.
Oh, and I guess I updated the Past Layouts section, too. I think the previous three layouts I have had are now added.

I owe many thanks to Nadja of Rebirth for generously hosting Moonflame Designs for many years now. Without her kindness, I would surely still be derping around on Freewebs.
