for them. My first attempt was loved (from their words ) by everyone there and that was the beginning of my emoticonist career . So inspiration for many emoticons
is the TO DO list from Hotbar. But sometimes when I'm tired from making what I need to do I do what I like. Usually emoticons
are best. And usually Hotbar take them too
