Summer is officially over! Well for us it is. The weather is bad where I live, what about yours?
Well its been a long time since we had a newsletter update, summer holidays and all that. This is the time of year when the kiddies go back to school and the parents breathe a sigh of relief. For some of us the gardens need squaring up ready for fall and all those things that you never got round to doing all summer, just need to be done quick!
to Pamela and Tiffany for starting up a new graphics business. Pamela and Tiffany are specialising in making blog backgrounds and accessories, however can make anything you like. The profits from this business are being used ...... wait ...... there are no profits because every cent made and more goes toward buying new graphics for us all to enjoy on the forums here at SheKnows. Dont forget to thank all
of the siggy ladies for doing a wonderful job, giving up their free time and dollars to make our forums a prettier place.
I will be gone from the 7th to the 22nd of this month so if you have any requests or problems please contact Pamela aka PamelaT and she will be happy to help you. I am lucky enough to be visiting Salou in Spain and I am so looking forward to it.

We thought maybe you might have a question about something that goes on here at Graphic Central. We have lots of forums here...Photography, Signature Fun-which includes, Blinkies, Glitter Names and Custom Signatures and Graphics. The hosts have added tutorials in each category if you would like to learn any of these graphics arts. Please read through the tutorials and have a go at making something new. And please show us what you make, we'd love to see. We are also very open to having volunteers and/or Hosts in our requests forums. Please inquire within about becoming a volunteer if you know how to make blinkies, glitters, siggies or graphics of any kind. If you have any other questions, something you would like to know about any of these fields, please let us know and we will give you the answer in the following newsletter next month. Just leave us a post
