Thursdaily with post-not-a-book-guilt. Also, all the #inktobers!

My stupid brain. It keeps insisting that I'm slacking off, that I haven't dooooone anything today.

Shut up, brain. I finished a book yesterday.

Also, I finished scanning my #inktobers!

Click through for a much larger version.

I am pleased with myself for trying different ink mediums - brushes, and brush pens, and dip pens, as well as my favorite pens. I am pleased with the variety of themes. I'm tickled I got some good Portrait Adoption portraits out of it, and two Torn World illustrations. I think some of my dragons turned out awesome, and I'm looking forward to adding them to my Etsy shop. I've even sold a few! Not all of them are amazing, but I'm okay with that. Summary: #inktober is awesome. A+, will do again. (This, FYI, is my third time winning it.)

Also, I fixed some details at Portrait Adoption that were raising red security flags on some browsers. (It wasn't really not secure, I just hadn't updated all the various graphic links since I added a security certificate. But big red flags could be off-putting to someone interested in adopting, and we don't want that...)

I even chopped wood and made a fire, and vacuumed and did dishes and scooped the catbox.

See, brain? Stuff a sock in it. I'm having a brownie.

I... may have an ornament problem. I didn't realize I had SO many. I'm not sure how (or if) I will be able to display them all. After next weekend's show, expect to see some here for sale. A lot of them are on shatterproof balls now, and I've also successfully shipped the glass ones several times.

I'm going to treat myself to an episode of Arrow and then there will be a walk with Guppy, and probably I'll start packing the car for Saturday.
