GillianIvy's Profile Picture
Gillian Ivy
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied

Hi, I'm Gillian. An artist and mother. I am in love with silverbane/Reignson . We met on DeviantART in 2004. We live together in Indiana with our son. I have a dream of some day owning my own studio/gallery that looks like the interior of the 11th Doctor's TARDIS. I love Science Fiction, Fantasy, British Comedies, gaming, and anything with a bad sense of humor. I am obnoxious. I write long winded responses. I love CSS.
If you would like prints of my art, visit my Etsy store and send me a convo.

Earning Extra Points

Sat Aug 1, 2015, 11:36 PM by GillianIvy:icongillianivy:
I've been checking the llama trade and dAhub for extra :points: towards the Super Babes Super Group Pointsraiser.  Between the two, I've gotten about 11 :points: in two days (of casual trading).  I've been focusing on the llama portion of dAhub.  So, what is dAhub?  It is a bot, and it's perfectly within dA rules.  It works on a trade system.  Basically, it is a hub for the llama/devwatch/fave trade.  People donate to receive specified things until their quota has been met, the people who are receiving the :points: get a list of those who they have not yet given these to.  There is high turnover, if you watch the profile page, you will see it gets a lot of requests.

Now, it also has a referral system.  By sharing this journal and promoting the service, then I would be added to their referral network.  Then, they send 5% of the points donated by any users who visit their page because of my referral.  It works like this, if you are on a donator's watch list or if the donator is in your group, you will receive a portion of the profits from their transactions.  So, you refer them, they donate, it checks their watchlist and you get 5% of the donation.  The points from this would be sent at the end of each week.
Guidelines - Referral Network:bulletblue:
Post a new journal on your account or in your groups about dAhub and/or include the dAhub code in your signature then leave a comment on my profile page dAhub with the links to the journals. I will send you 5% of the points donated by any users who visit my page because of your referral
You can receive points for publicizing dAhub through any of the groups where you are an admin.  To receive points for publicizing through a group, include a link to the new group journal in your comment
Remember, featuring dAhub directly on your profile or group page will boost the points you earn too!
Example Journal
Hey! :icondahub: will give you free :points: if you watch, fav or give llamas to the users in his donation widget!
You can also be featured if you donate some :points:
So go to :devdahub: now! :D

Do you want a lot of llamas/devwatches/faves?  Or, earn :points: quickly and easily whilst contributing social interactions to the community and maybe find some cool artists.  Set up a donation widget on your page, then head on over there.  All :points: I receive will go towards the CSS-Babes becoming Super again.  My own membership will be expiring shortly, but I'm not using the group :points:.  I'll still be able to post articles there with CSS on them and make new journals in my  Currently, all my Premium Contents and Donate skins profits will go towards the Babes.  I'll be designing some new Babe Exclusive skins soon, featuring CSS3 elements and extras.


I am not currently accepting commissions.  I'll be preparing for another year of homeschooling, though I had hoped to be reintegrating my son into public school, we don't feel he is quite ready for that yet.  He is entering the 3rd grade.  I would love to socialize with other homeschooling families.  There are local ones here, but they mostly seem to be non-secular.  Besides, we lack transportation to be able to do much with them.  I do have Skype in the Classroom, so wouldn't be opposed to a Skype class buddy day with another kid his age (8).  He isn't very pro at socializing and could use some interaction with other kids to work on his conversation skills.  It wouldn't have to be about school related subjects, since the lesson would be about engaging in meaningful conversation.  His are very one-sided where he goes on and on about video games you don't play.  (I have no idea where the long-windedness comes from!)  If anyone is interested, PM me.

I will also be making homeschool resources in my teacherspayteachers store.  There is an upcoming sale that I cannot release the info about yet...  (I'll update here when it is released)  But all my things are always affordable.  I believe digital products ought to be extremely cheap.  There are no restocking the shelves, I can sell them over and over.  Just costs me my initial time and work to create the product, once it is paid for, all additional copies sold = profit.  I have very few sales there, but it has been picking up over the past year, so I plan to be making more.  If you want to support me as I make these and my art, I have a Patreon page set up where I will post all my work.  I've had a set back with my external hard drive dying, so all my work that I've had is currently in limbo.  But I may be able to fix this soon, so hopefully, will be filling up my Patreon with many goodies.  I plan to hold a giveaway once I reach $5/creation.  I haven't decided the platform for it, perhaps I'll leave it as a vote from my Patrons.  They will automatically be included, but if they are each supporting by $1, that means there would only be 5 entrants.  But hey, 1 in 5 chance to win is rather nice!  (my bf is my only Patron at the moment and he is excluded from the giveaway, so actually, 1 in 4)

Okay, I am rambling now, way sidetracked.  Back to the point, if you want to earn extra points for the group, head over to dAhub and give out some llamas/devwatches/faves of your choosing.


Thank you Anon, you know who you are!  #superbabescss :points:raiser
Came to post my late article for CSS-Babes & journalcss , but alas, dA is about to go into maintenance.  Hopefully, it will be done before midnight.  #CSSChallenge may be posting on Tuesday instead.
CSS-Babes is raising :points: to become Super once more.  The Donate widget is on my profile.  More details to come.


GillianIvy has started a donation pool!
39 / 2,679
Raising :points: to upgrade CSS-Babes to Super.

I've received a generous donation from eCSSited & CalendarProject towards Super Group, so we are halfway to this goal. (with current sale 4796:points:)
When Babes goes Super, I'll be creating a new skin for the group and give the profile a makeover. We'll be hosting a points fundraiser for Premium Content Skins.

You must be logged in to donate.
