The Birdthings that Ate My Brain!

I'm at Starbucks using the internets and they close in half an hour, so I'm gonna make this picture post of my finished birdthings and come back to morrow to put them all up on Etsy. ^_^

I don't know how to make this less picture intensive? So I'm just gonna make one big post with cuts instead of one post per bird? I hope this works. D:

These are the Birds I've been working on for the past two months. And I'll be finishing the 10 Hunters I posted WIPS about and catching up on Commissions this coming up week!

I won't be able to answer comments until tomorrow! I don't have internet at home, which is why I've been pretty quiet for a while. I'm working on fixing that, but I can't do that until I get a job. :)

Now I go home and write copy for their soon to be Etsy listings. ~_^

Where I am on the Interwebs.



Not surprisingly, I am in many places!! But I don't update any of them regularly. I try, though? D:
(I try not to spam to much and I work a lot and well, yus. *sigh*)

Feel free to add me on any of them! I'm mostly friendly and don't bite much. ^__^

Aaaand I was gonna cut this and forgot. Argh my mushy brain peas. )

That's enough procrastination for the time being. :P Back to the Goblings! (Tiny goblins! EeeeEEE!! ^__^)


ETA: THis journal is friends only except for finished art posts. :) Please comment if you want to be added. <3

I don't bite, I'm just tired. :)

the Poet Elah Gal

I am pretty tuckered out as I stayed up last night with a wild hair of inspiration and finished the Poet! omg finally!! I went to bed around 6am hoping that Leeloo would let me sleep past 10, but no joy. :/ So yus. Jane will not be working past posting this. *augh. dies of no sleep* I truly believe that right now caffeine will do me more harm then good and so I'll try and catch up a bit by going to bed early. (Oh, the huge manatees!)

So yus! The Poet! The poet Elah Gal is the narrator of "Child Empress of Mars" by Theodora Goss and I've been working on her for about 6 months now. o_o;; I am very happy to have finished her and hopefully I can get her in the mail onward to her destination soon.

************
ETA: Things I thought I posted but apparently didn't and this is why I shouldn't post exhausted. >_>

Back in Novemberish, I posted about the Interfictions 2 auction and the doll i made and donated for the Interstitial Arts Foundation (IAF). The story I chose, "Child Empress of Mars" by Theodora Goss, can be found in the Interfictions 2 anthology which you can buy from Amazon here and Small Beer Press here. :D I totally encourage folks to check it out! Not just for the Child Empress, but for the rest of the stories as well. So much yay! :D :D

Okee. Back to the previously posted pics of poet-ishness.

My brain she's been eaten by this handsome dude. He's about 12" tall and is an all terrain beastie. As usual, I bemoan my lack of photo skills. I'm getting better, but I have yet to discover the trick to making them look as nice as they do in person. *sigh* one day...

Weekend photos from Two Tree Gallery

Here are pics from this weekend! ^___^ I had a lot of fun at the opening. Julie Woodward, the owner was lovely to meet and set up everything and was generally awesome. ^__^ and [livejournal.com profile] reader222 was a godsend and fabulous travelpartner. ^__^ Whoot!

And!! The art is fabulous!! Seriously, if y'all are in the Jacksonville, IL area from now until August 7, totally go and check it out!! ^_____^



Here's the window. The dolls are by Oddolls.net I *loved* their teeths! :D and they're huge!

Massive amount of Pics! omg. )



This is Fox. I finished him up while Betsy drove me from Rockford. I AM IN LOVE. which means I ended up taking more pics of him than of anything else. >_>; oops.

+7 )



And this is Mer! Who I also finished along the way. He and Fox are bestest buds, man. ^___^

+1 )



Also!! There are the elusive Skellieones. :D Three of them! This guy's name is Skellieone - Black. Descriptive, I know. The other two are Skellieones - Grey and Green. (I was kinda running out of time! D: I don't know what I would have done if Betsy hadn't written out a zillion tags for me! D: D:)

Skellieones - Black, Grey and Green! )

The show is up until August 7 and there'll be another Gallery Hop then that I will be attending. ^_^ (and then taking my stuff home afterward.) If anyone from around my area wants to come with me then, I'd love the company! And you get to see awesome dolls! whoot! ^___^

****

In car news, I called the mechanic this afternoon and he said that the new alternator he put in was toasted and he replaced that and tested it and it's all running and stuff. :/ I hope he's right as I have now spent more money on repairs than I have at the moment. :((

I'll be arranging for a ride out there this weekend when I head back to Rockford for Warren and Betsy's vow renewal and picnic. (Which is going to be Awesome!) Hopefully DoomCar will make it back to Madison in one piece. :/

****

Anywhoo, that's the news for the time being. ^_^ I've got other things in the wings, but this post is long enough and it's almost 4am. D: (and I've got stuff to do this morning! ergh.)
