Number 1 Dog Ribbon

Mondaily with new digi stamp, new portraits, new Portrait Adoption stuff, taxes done...

It was a busy, productive weekend!

I finished the upgrades for the Portrait Adoption site. There are still little things to tweak, but it is MILES above what it was just a few weeks ago. The front text of the site is re-written, and FAQ updated, customization sends a request through the site now and sets a claim, searches work and count properly now... plus all the changes I've been gabbing about last week and the week prior.

I added color to one of my portraits from last year, and it's been posted: http://portraitadoption.com/portrait.php?id=2493

I have one more colorized version in the queue, plus a full color piece that I've had done for a while but put aside to post at a time when I could offer the original, too.

I've also got a new digi stamp available at Etsy, The Gift: https://www.etsy.com/listing/220999695/dragon-gift-digi-stamp-digital-coloring

I also finished my business and self-employment taxes this weekend. Go me!

This week's big goals are to start advertising Portrait Adoption, and to get through my inbox backlog. I'm at 229, and some of them are getting moldy. I also want to make it to the new Children's Museum this week!

Off to do stuff now - Guppy is up earlier than usual, so I'm going to get hustling while the hustling is good.

Living in the future, rant version

So I bought a movie on Amazon and downloaded it to my ipad, so I could watch it on the TV, because that's how I stream Netflix, and it's the easiest thing to do. Problem? Amazon videos won't export to external devices. They claim it's a rights thing.

FINE. I'll buy a movie on iTunes. I've watched iTunes episodes on the TV without problems. Oh, but not PROTECTED movies. Those won't go out, via my Apple-brand HDMI converter, to the TV. Because rights.

Seriously, I just want to watch the stupid movie that I've legally bought on the stupid TV from my iPad. WHY SO HARD?!

January 2015 Roundup

Have you missed some of my creative updates over the last month? I'm doing monthly roundups to try to keep some sense in the chaos!


Artwork

I did 6 pieces for Sketch Fest: http://www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/sketchfest/sketchfestartist.php?id=9&date=59
Muse Fusion ran the same weekend, and I overlapped many of the prompts.
