Argh, somebody sniped the auction I was bidding on for my Bengal Road pillow sham at the last minute. I can't complain though (even though it might appear that I am) because I LOVE snipers when I am selling things on eBay, lol. I really should have bid more. I guess that if you honestly bid your maximum price when eBay asks you for your "max bid" then you can't be too upset when someone outbids you.|
Yay! Elfwood picked my "Swamp Spirit" for their "Moderator's Choice"!
I think I've qualified for eBay's "Power Seller" distinction too, but I'm not sure. I wish eBay's records would go back further than 30 days so I could check what my sales were in November and December (since your stats have to be consistent for three months in a row). We'll see if I get an invite from them =)
Let me see.... what else is new.... I made a donation to Epilogue last night. I love that site, and since I spend so much time browsing there (and since they host my gallery for free) I thought I should give them some support.
In a half hour or so I'm going to start painting again - so the Webcam will be up!

Is that a vampire I see??? *tilts head to the side*
I like the outfit you've painted on her. My mom used to dress me up in those type of dresses ALL the time when I was smaller :)
You paint an aweful lot... how do your brushes hold up with all that use?? :) Mine start to splay right away. I hate it. I do everything right too! I wash them properly and after I'm done I shape the tip again.. but they always splay. Arrgh. I heard that using gum arabic works sometimes.. and I heard that dipping the tip of the brush in hot water for a few minutes also works.. but I don't know. Maybe I should start buying the really expensive brushes - or maybe it's just me??? I use the brushes that have a very small fine tip. I don't think I'm rough with them but who knows.
Anyway, have fun painting!
I have to go out and buy some new brushes. :)
Hehe- yep, I just was painting some little Vampire Nymphs =) I love those sort of dresses. Every time I look at little girls' clothes at the store I always wish they had the same patterns for grownups! I can sometimes fit a 14/16 in the little girls' sizes (they're pretty much the same as a size 2 or 3 in ladies' sizes), but usually they don't make the extra cute dresses for girls past about size 6x.
I do go through brushes pretty quickly - I usually buy all new brushes about once every few weeks. I only use synthetic brushes (for the sake of the little animals and they also seem to last longer), which are cheaper anyways!
do you eat ice cream? just wondering. congrats on mods choice. im joining elfwood, im waiting for them to review my ticket right now. it looks like a pretty cool place. im looking forward to getting some feedback when i get up there.
Yay for Elfwood!
I do eat ice cream =) Matt LOVES ice cream, he'll eat crazy amounts of it at a time. I don't eat it very much though. I like it, just in small amounts. I think I'd like it a lot more if I hadn't spend a good part of my youth working at a Dairy Queen. I remember cleaning out the ice cream machines and having great lumps of ice cream floating around in 5 gallon buckets filled with soapy water, or seeing big lumps of ice cream clogging up drains along with soggy french fries, old hot dogs and tangles of hair. Yuck! I try not to associate those thoughts with ice cream now, but sometimes....
