I'm finishing up a BIG commissioned portrait (not giant, but still one of the largest I've done - the same as my Atlantis and Ophelia paintings), which is turning out nicely. I might even get it finished up tomorrow, and then I'll be able to start working on some new originals.
I'm planning on doing some surprise mini paintings throughout this week, by the way, while our guests are here, so you might periodically check this link below:

There aren't any minis yet, hehe, but I thought I'd post them at random times throughout the week when I get a chance to squeeze in some painting. I like listing them sometimes at odd times to mix it up a little and let folks who live in different time zones, or who have different work schedules, etc. to get a chance. So from time to time you just might want to click on that link ;)
Lots of exciting news on the licensed merchandise front, I'll have some "Tree-Free" brand greeting cards in the future, as well as some beautiful high-end sterling silver jewelry, and also possibly some fun automotive stuff (steering wheel covers, floor mats, seat covers, that type of thing). And a whole slew of Hot Topic stuff - tons, actually! Torrid as well. More info to follow. So much is going on, it almost makes my head swim! And just a couple of weeks until the statues are out - yay!
All of the books have been shipped - it's nice to have my living room back, hehe. We have more shipments on the way, but they won't be near as crazy as those initial ones, thank goodness (at least, I don't *think* they will be).
Got my Halloween BPAL order today! YUM - so many good scents. I'm excited that they just did the Yule update too - I'm going to get a bunch of those too, I'm an addict.
OH yes!! I'm really happy - I was accepted into this year's "Masters of Fantasy" again!!! Last year I was in it and it led to some great contacts and really big things, so I'm very pleased that they let me in again this year, hehe. For those of you who haven't seen the acceptance list yet, I'll post it under the LJ-cut - if you entered, check for your name! I see that tourmalina & blonde_blythe are on there, and some more, so take a peek!

I'm off to bed - I'm so sleepy - my clock is all thrown off today. I'll check in again soon!
