  1. I love the story you told in this piece and can't wait to get it! Maya~
  2. Meg I'm sorry for your families loss. You'll be in our prayers. Asking for blood donations in your brothers name is a wonderful way for others to be helped and him to be remembered. Maya~
  3. So everything is well with the little one? That's great! So far! He's been babbling constantly and his vocabulary has increased by several words as well as random words he'll just spit out but not use again. (which will come) He got a three syllable word out yesterday for the first time. Utterly wonderful progress for the short time he's had them in!! We go in tomorrow to have his permant hearing aids looked at for a feedback problem that developed and have temps again in the meantime. He's been without the aids for a day because of that and actually misses them enough to mime that he wants them put in his ears. Maya~
  4. Happy B'Day Zaphod & Cadaver! Thanks for the well wishes all! :) @fieldarchy A good but pretty laid back day, spent time with Alex and his quest for new sounds then helped my mother clean up some of her studio. (It flooded several days ago.) Maya~
  5. I can see all the stuff clearly on the base in those. Much better! Thankee! Maya~
  6. The wagga is lovely and the base looks good from this angle. However, since you can see other items on the base my only critic would be that you didn't give enough angle shots to properly admire it. Maya~
  7. I really like how she came out. I think the freehand on the sleeves looks much much better than they did plain. Maya~
  8. Actually the skeleton is lined, it's just too subtle for my photography skills to pick up. :( Thanks for the comment. The dio was really fun to put together and do, I enjoyed it immensely. The leaves are parts of the birch seeds that drop in the fall. Hudson & Allen used to put out some cleaned and dyed ones. Antenociti's workshop sells some nice dyed ones. Maya~
  9. Personally, I would keep to your guns if you want to keep international bidders (international bids are always a good thing IMHO). With as many problems as it sounds like you are having..maybe try placing the "International bidders MUST email me for shipping quotes before bidding" immediately after the description. With its own line in bold in the auction listing proper. I've also found that giving the USPS web address along with a note that they can estimate rough shipping there too also helps. You really can't say your terms enough in enough places if you still get folks surprised by shipping. Maya~
  10. I relisted it if you wish to try again. Maya~
  11. In addition to fieldarchy's suggestion, if you use tap water try switching to distilled. Some tap water has too much added junk in it to play nice with paints. Maya~
  12. I finally managed IMHO to get better pics of these guys than I managed to take last year with a much older camera. This is an old Limited Edition of Reapers and was fun to paint it up like the original artwork. It like most of my painted minis are going up for auction to pay for my sons hearing aids. ebay listing I was trying for a very monotone look for the skeleton. ebay link Maya~
  13. I've actually done that to find room to lay out my drawing materials. I need to find room to shift that stuff so I can make that a high box pile instead of a table. Just way too much stuff trying to be in too small an area. Maya~
  14. Yep, I have. To give my two-year old his own room, I gave up my office and moved my entire stash of miniature and drawing related items into a very very teeny space in another room. At the same time I inherited another large collection of minis. The unblistered stuff alone is currently housed in like six office depot boxes, I can't see my painting desk for the boxes and piles of blistered stuffs on and around it and half of my closet is boxed sets and more miniatures. So I hit the "cull it" or "live without moving when you paint" point. Maya~
  15. As folks stated above, Wal-mart carries one exactly like that ebay auction http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5030889 and can usually be found near their cameras. I got one of these last month for the forensic studio and they are nicely sized. While going through Office Depot yesterday, I saw a much much smaller version (still with the builton carry case, lights and tripod) in their camera section. These are about single mini size. Maya~
  16. <<Let's wade a little deeper shall we? In case any of you have not read the terms of use for CMON (like myself until just now) here ye go! QUOTE 18.

CMON revamped that section of the TOS and announced it just a few days before announcing the sale of the pdf book. Maya~
  17. Mine arrived this evening with all of them safe and sound. :) Thankee on the good packing job. Maya~
  18. It's been like that for more than a week with no announcement anywhere that I could find when I noticed. :/ Maya~
  19. Thats a very good job for a third mini. Keep it up!! Maya~
  20. I finished these a few months back, but hadn't had time to photo them properly. The scarecrow is on the way to Cutebutpsycho for the Jester Project. CMoN linky for those that like to vote. CMoN linky for those that like to vote. Maya~
  21. @Beowulfthehunter She was so sporadically painted I don't really remember exactly the combos that I used for the greens. Someday I'll learn to write stuff down since thats a really bad habit of mine thats lost me some really nice mixes. The skirt part of her dress was (all msps) leaf green, mist green, mist green mixed with moth green, spring green, luminous green with a tiny bit of white mixed in. @eastman Heh. That'd be a cute conversion! Maya~
  22. Thank you. The beads are itty bitty Halcraft marbles. Michaels has them in the scrapbooking/embossing section. Pretty cool little things. Maya~
  23. I've had this mini based and partually painted since I got her in the mail after the con and finally got the free time to finish her. She just seemed to scream for shiny beads so she got some. :) CMON linky. Maya~
