Sigh, my premium membership ran out Edit: A rather wonderful RejectAll-American just upgraded my account, I strongly suggest you go check out her artwork. She's a wonderful person
News news.. at the moment I'm not taking in many commissions, I can't do everything in a day and of course my vet tech studies have to come in first. The more I advertise, the more requests I get for sponsoring photo-competitions or donating to a raffle for unregistered charities, the "I can't afford that/it's a gift, others are cheaper" knock off requests, or the golden one, free artwork requests. Oh! Also, the "I'll translate your website for a £125 piece of artwork" one too. After a while, it gets pretty boring and it's a let down every time my art email pings on my phone, I rush to read it only to find it's another after one of the above. BUT anyway
Where is the year going already?! The OH's and my 3 year anniversary passed at the beginning of the month which is pretty weird considering it feels we've been together 5/6 plus years. Honestly I can't believe I've got plans for November etc and already thinking about July etc and all the things I need to do at the yard. Scottie had his new false tail put in yesterday (He's an old man now and his tail is absolutely sparse yet his mane is much thicker than before) and I'm waiting for yet another round of new medicine for Spud to arrive (sigh) I won't go on about that here, way too emotional for that one.
I'm currently sporting a few more mosquito bites, including one on my thigh measuring 3.1" by 5.2" inches and a lovely big one on the top of my hand. I'm horribly allergic to them, and after 3/4 bites, I start feeling really lousy and grow these enormous, solid hot lumps. Little bastards! I also stood on a hedgehog yesterday, which is about as bizarre of a statement I can have ever imagined to say!
I'm not entering any competitions this year as far as I know - mostly due to not having the time to do artwork! Seems weird to think it's almost a year since the last one, boo
The dog managed to skewer himself about 6 weeks ago, luckily he's all recovered now but I'd rather not find any more holes in him! The birds are all well though
Pretty boring news this time, apologies! How are you all?
