Lol, I totally need a bigger house- I just got my first shipment of some custom sized mailing tubes and poly bags I ordered wholesale, and now boxes as big as I am are taking over my living room, lol. I ordered some brand new uber-thick mailing tubes (made out of fiberboard about three times as thick as the ones you can get at Office Max). They are like IMPOSSIBLE to bend (which is important, with artwork), so I am very excited. I had a couple of prints get SQUISHED over the holiday shipping rush (apparently with my old tubes, if somebody STOMPS on them {why somebody at the post office would do this, I do not know, lol} they would crinkle in the middle, and I don't want that to ever happen again! No problem with these sturdy little guys though =)

I also bought an enormous roll of poly-tubing (basically a tube shaped bag {the same size of the inside diameter of the mailing tubes} and is thousands of feet long) that is rolled up on a big spool and you cut off whatever length bag you need. I'm using it to put my rolled prints and paintings in it before I put them in mailing tubes, kind of like how you'd buy a poster at a store, so they'll come out of the tubes easily =)

So now I have all these huge boxes full of Art of Faery books, lots of mailing tubes, poly tubing, labels, Priority Mail boxes, etc. They're taking over. Help!!! o_O

Enough about that though =P I'm going to get some painting done now! First though, my webcam is going to go down for a moment while I snap some reference pics ;) I'll update here with my webcam link once it's back up and running!
