Ok, so I've been MIA on DA and Gaia because we moved and out in the country the only internet we could get was this tiny netbook that apparently doesn't like Gaia at all... I can't get it to load up properly. dA takes forever, and won't load the submission thing right either. This means that my Gaia is essentially closed but I can't actually get on to officially close it. If you ordered anything, you can go ahead and cancel it. And as some sort of consolation, I will put free versions of some of the items on Mushmallow for all to use. I probably won't be uploading anything to da for a while, but they will be on my site.
The only art I've been doing lately is for Whuddleworld and Mushmallow. If you haven't joined WW, you should! It's the cutest online community but of course, now that I'm an artisan, I may be a bit biased.
I'm trying to redo my site. I've sucked at keeping it up but since I have less to focus on, internet wise (RL is a different story), I really want to relaunch it in an awesome way. I know the smilies were a hit, but what other freebies would yall like? Freebies for dA, gaia, myspace, lj, wordpress, forums, your own site, etc.?
And here's the tricky question, what would you be willing to pay for? Commissions, stickers, shirts, magnets, buttons? Any suggestions? I had some people buy stuff from my store on zazzle and I really appreciate it, I really do. I can't express how much!
You can ask my hubby, every time I get an order, I jump up and down! I know... I'm a nerd. I haven't been able to order my own items so I'm interested to know the quality, so if you've ordered from them, please let me know what you thought of the finished products.
In non art/web related news... I'm pregnant with #5 due at the end of July. My hubby and I now own a farm and hope to have lots of chickens, goats, veggies and fruits soon. And I'm still recovering from the shock of watching my Saints win the Superbowl.
