    oh wow, Bubba looks beautiful! pm me and let me know how much I owe you and where/how to send it - I can't remember if we were doing this by paypal, check, money order or what.

    thanks, Laurelin, it looks great and my partner will absolutely love it.

    I've been out of town camping and during my absence, mine arrived! Laurelin is right, the pictures don't really do the colors justice. I'm going to frame it up and get some pictures of it, hopefully within the next week or so.

    Okay cool! I can mail it this week then! I'm just gonna send them all together, is that okay?

    I hope some of you get better pics than I've gotten. Especially Sass's. I could NOT get the yellow to scan in nicely at all.

    Yep that'll be perfect. Then I'll have it to give to my mom when we go camping here soon. :)

    Ok, I framed it and took some pictures... sorry for the glare, I haven't decided for sure on a spot to hang it and I was trying to get some light from the windows so the colors would show up nicely.

    I still don't think the pictures show how nice it is, though.

    There has been some progress but not much. I've been working overtime and house hunting. I am setting a deadline for end of November to be done with them all. Jess, yours WILL be done by Sunday. I have one of the ferrets done. So will Cali's, they're almost done. Hopefully a couple more.

    Sael's has been through a ringer in the mail. Finally showed back up at my house after being MIA for a few weeks. Did you get my last PM, Sael? I think Chaz ate it? I've had a lot of trouble getting on chaz the last couple weeks and my PMs have been disappearing...

    I am not doing commissions again after this. I just am not in a place to do as much art as I was when I started this. I also overbooked myself some to be honest and got in over my head. I am so so sorry. It's really been weighing on me a lot/stressing me out how slow these have gone. I will get the rest done though by November 31 at the absolute latest.

    Me, but like I said I can wait until everyone is done and you're less busy even if that's several moons/years away. I'm just glad that things worked out for Ada. That was far more important to me than a picture.

    Hey PM me some reference shots! I can cook something up in the next few weeks.

    I am very glad things worked out for her too. She's doing very well from what I hear. Haven't seen her in a while but my sister has a few times.

    I got the one that said it was lost in the mail, and I thought I responded, but maybe I didn't, or maybe my response got eaten. But if there was one after that, I didn't get it.
