All the CSS-Babes articles to date.  Here, we'll catalog our journals, organized by article and date.  There will be two archives, The Tip Jar and The Archive.  The Tip Jar will have links directly to each CSS Tip, whereas, here, we'll gather all articles without reference to tips.  This article will be updated periodically.  The articles will be ordered from the most recent articles to oldest.

CSS Challenge - Mondays

Challenge - Week 11Challenge : River Rocks
:icongillianivy: suggested by gillianivyart 

Design a journal skin or dA CSS based off of the theme of river rocks.  I find the image so soothing and the color palette rather pleasing.  I could close my ears and hear the river trickling through.  A skin doesn't need to have images of rocks in order to be inspired, the colors and textures of rocks and water or the peaceful feeling you have from it might be more what inspires you.  Remember to tag your design with #CSSChallenge

Thumbshare - 2nd & 4th Tuesdays

Twosday ThumbsI'm doing a two skin feature this week.  Share two in the comments (by yourself or a fave is fine).  Alternately, write your own journal and do a double CSS feature using the tag #CSSThumbshare and encourage your watchers to do the same.  If you want to tag people and force them to do it and make them answer questions as well...  Have fun, it's your journal!

Well, I'll be - where did that double-colon come from? It didn't come over the sea and it wasn't in search of India. No, it came with CSS3 and it is not, as some people believe

Ask a Babe - 1st & 3rd Fridays

Ask a Babe - Code Cycling EtiquetteOver the years, I have heard arguments on both sides on how to handle 'code cycling'.  Every skinner, like any artist will have different permissions and views on this subject.  I can only speak for my own, but I prefer to err on the side of caution.  I am a firm believer that it is better to ask than to get your derivative work removed for terms violations.
Some will say that it is just code and there are limited ways that you can write it.  But, at the same time, the coders who figure things out through countless hours of trial and error, only to have the next person come along and copy paste...  The idea I want to convey is learn to code.  Learn how and why it works and take the work of those who pioneered it before you as advice and showing you the path.  Credit where it's due is always good.

This Week in CSS - Thursdays

This Week in CSSTo all those who have started a new year of school, happy back to school day!  I'm starting our homeschool year on Monday.  A little later than the local schools, but I really wasn't ready to clean up the mess from last year!  I spent today reorganizing my art table, which is right beside the school desk, tomorrow shall be tackling that!  I was also late ordering our books, so they might not arrive until Monday.  I'm a slacker.  So yes, if I'm late on these articles, keep in mind I'm late on everything and am a notorious procrastinator.  Just ask my Mom.  lolols.
