And again I think this might be another record-setting update, so much new news! It's been awhile since I've had the time to send out my mailing list, so you are in for another treat today. Sit back, make some tea, and get ready for pretty pictures and good news.
Firstly - we are back home from Nashville, where I was a teacher at The Fantastic Workshop! The workshop was amazing (fantastic even), had a blast! We are back home now and gearing up for our big annual Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale. Starting Friday and running all four days we'll have a huge sale, 25% off all prints & pins at Strangeling.com and StrangelingUK.com with coupon code THANKS2017 - I'll send out a reminder, don't worry.
Secondly - I am GIVING AWAY a custom original painting! At 8pm Wednesday, November 22
we will randomly choose one of my Patreon Patrons, all members
will be entered automatically (if you're not a member yet sign up here
by 8pm Wednesday so you'll get in!!!). The winner will get to tell me how to finish the painting to your own specifications and will receive the original painting in your own choice of frame - details below! Your own chance to see your idea painting, and yes you get the original painting.
I've got a couple of upcoming shows here in Florida at Disney Springs - my Mermaids show is December 9
(6-9pm at the Pop Gallery), and an autographing evening for Disney on December 16
(4-7 at the Co-Op). See them on my official events page here
. For the Mermaids Show we'll be giving away an exclusive Dumbo Octopus Mermaid Pin to the first 100 customers
- details here
or scroll down below in this update!
New paintings! I have two new paintings
to show you (both the originals have already sold, but we have prints & canvases). "Unseelie Court: Gluttony" is here
, "Faces of Faery 241" (featuring an American Staffordshire Terrier!) is here!
In addition, I finally have the original "Bone Chariot" painting AVAILABLE here
- 52" high in a magnificent frame, details below with photos or click here
ACEO cards! I have a batch of brand new ACEO Cards HERE
(Art Cards, Editions & Originals = ACEOs - trading card sized pieces of art created by many artists online). Each is up for auction starting at just on penny each, I only make one single ACEO card for each painting I do, so they are one of a kind, 2.5x3.5" canvas giclees that are each hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed and numbered #1 out of 1! Again, click here
to see them all or to place bids.
Pins, Pins, Pins - we have the November Pin of the Month - "Wolf Moon" - available to the public for sale here
! We also have released a brand new Patreon Exclusive Pin - "The Scarecrow" - details about her are here
. She is not for sale, but is an exclusive for all of our Patreon Pin Collectors (the $25 tier). If you are already a Patreon
pin collector both "The Scarecrow" and "Wolf Moon" are on their way! If you are not yet, sign up here and you'll get both along with the Strangeling lanyard here
Speaking of Patreon, some of you will be VERY interested in this - as some of you know, my husband and partner Matthew David Becket is a writer of wonderful fiction, and he has created his own personal Patreon here
to showcase his writings (including a Patreon exclusive serialized story "Bleeding Garbage", various writing tutorials & behind-the-scenes info, movie reviews and more writing stuff). He's preparing to launch audio versions too. Not for children. Join him here
. Starting next year we'll be collaborating on what we hope to be a weekly video program too, so stay tuned ;)

Do you love beautiful handmade ink pens? I do! So does Michelle, the artist behind "Innovations in Ink
" - she has licensed many of my paintings to put on her handmade artisanal ink pens and you can see them here
. You can also see & purchase them in person at the Pop Gallery at Disney Springs - they really must be seen in person to be appreciated (the ones at Pop Gallery actually contain my physical signature on a panel inside the pen itself - so neat!).
Again - the entry deadline for my Original Custom Painting is 8pm Wednesday night, Eastern Time. All tiers and all members of my Patreon page here
will automatically be entered literally up to the very last second at 8pm, so get up there if you can!
