Mondaily with abstracts updates and zucchini news

Manual pollination of the zucchinis may be working... I've got one that's about 4 or 5 inches now, and doesn't show any signs of rotting yet. Thank you so much to everyone who weighed in on the topic! It's been cold, and I haven't seen many bees, so that's very likely the culprit.

This morning I went to the gym early, and then went grocery shopping (it is SO much more pleasant shopping in the morning on a weekday than any other time...) and came home, ate food, started laundry and took an unexpected nap. I'm super bleary now, and struggling to get my motivation back.

I'm scanning more ACEOs, and hope to sit down and paint the last few I have to do, then tackle icons. Unfortunately, my scanner is being a beast, and refuses to scan more than one pass before freezing and requiring a restart. *taps toes* Come, my precious, quit misbehaving. In funding news, we are $54 from the next perk level, which is where anyone who sponsored any amount would also get a free ACEO print of their choice. Details (and loooots of scans) here: http://ellenmillion.livejournal.com/1216777.html

The Arabian Nights coloring book is officially canceled. A few folks stepped up to do last-minute pieces, but just not enough. I am shelving it indefinitely. Alas! I am opening submissions for the Fairy Tales coloring book. The deadline for this one is a year off, because I have no idea what next year is going to be like (what with the new addition) and I'm not going to kill myself getting it out before that happens.

I will have one new single-artist coloring book to release (announcement pending!), and a reprint of Robin Nunez's title, for the holidays, and possibly the Torn World coloring book - I'm looking at what that will take to finish up this week.

I've got some orders to fill, laundry to hang, and... the scanner needs restarted again. Where's my big wrench?

ETA: Here are a few of the first icons:
