Weekend Update

The house is very strangely quiet for a Sunday. Monsterus minimus, after days of resisting naps, was acting tired SUPER early, and went quietly to sleep without fuss. She's also eating like a hollow thing, so I'm wondering if we won't see her shoot up another two inches over the next couple of days.

Working on coloring books - emails, answering messages, updating claims, laying out pages, formatting PDFs. Five of the seven titles are funded! And we're less than $200 to the next one!

I also want artists to know: you guys are eligible for wholesale pricing on any titles you're included in! You do not have to meet wholesale minimums, but you do have to pay shipping. You MAY pledge through the Kickstarter to make your wholesale order.

You may also pledge by Paypal or use your EMG credits, if you do not have a Kickstarter account. These purchases WILL count towards our stretch goals. (I saw another project do this and thought it looked like a fair amount of work to keep track of, but it certainly seemed to get them an number of sales they otherwise wouldn't... there's only a week left, so I'm game to try!)

Got a few more wheelbarrows of wood moved yesterday in the rain, and yet a few more today. There are still a few to go, but the original pile is shrinking and shrinking. It's sort of magical.

Yesterday, I went for a long walk with Norway. We took the longest loop we usually do - all the way down into the swamp and up across the power lines and through the woods. I don't know how many miles - probably not that impressive a distance, but rough terrain and steep paths. Both of us came back soaking wet and smiling, despite the rain and cold.

(Let's be honest, he didn't even NOTICE the rain and cold...)
