Hurricane, New Custom Painting Auction & New Merchandise!!!

Meep - I've been watching the news, and Hurricane Frances is definitely on her (apparently it's the girl spelling of Frances, hehe) way!! The hurricane itself is approximately the size of Texas, and it's coming right towards us, so it's going to be pretty tough to avoid. Some of the coastal areas have been evacuated, and they're all coming to Central Florida (my neck of the woods) to escape the actual "storm surge" (where the ocean comes out over the land). But of course, being Labor Day Weekend, all of the hotels & motels are booked up completely. What a mess - the highways all through Florida are gridlocked from literally millions (about 2 or 3 million) people trying to escape =(

For my immediate area though, the safest thing we can do is just stay put. We're in an incredibly well-built new home with solid block construction and a couple of "safe rooms" (windowless central rooms). Our utility lines are all underground, and stayed on all through Hurricane Charley, so hopefully we won't lose any power, cable, phone, water, etc., at least I HOPE we don't. I'll try to keep you all updated here - if I seem to disappear or don't answer emails for a few days - you'll know why!!!!

Okay, first off, I have an original painting for sale! This is one of my "Custom" auctions!! Basically it is an unfinished painting - just the basics are there - a wide eyed girl in front of a starry night sky. The winner of this auction will get to tell me what colour/style to make her hair, what colour eyes she should have, what kind of clothes, and what kind of wings!!!!! She is an acrylic painting on a sheet of canvas and measures 9"x12". This is your chance to have an original painting customized to your specifications! It is up for a 10 day auction, starting at just one penny!!! She will be ending on Sunday September 12th at 7:09 PM and you can see her here:


And - more exciting news - I have some great new merchandise for sale!!!

I am offering my new postcards in sets of five (one of each picture - "Horned Fairy," "Hunger Pains," "Lost ..but Not Worried," "Red Vinyl Fairy," and "Two Headed Girl". Each set is only $10.00! These are professionally retailed postcards, on glossy cardstock, ready to send to your friends or to keep for your own as pieces of artwork! The postcard sets can be found here:


In addition, I now have decorative metal lightswitch plate covers for sale! They are great for brightening up any room, and are only $6.00 each. There are three designs and you can see them here:

I was hoping to start exploring Final Fantasy XI with Matty tonight, but we are still getting some big orders ready to ship out early tomorrow - we're getting everything we can out before the hurricane comes. ((heatherica - I'll let you know when we get set up!!!)).

Off to more work!!!
