Mondaily brief with coloring book bundles sale ending soon!

I have a ton of things to do today, mostly running around, but also phone calls and orders and advertising and organizing and sending drafts of things.

I am remiss in alerting my journal followers to a sale at EMG - I don't put things on sale often, so it's an alert-worthy thing:

Shower and scanning now... I have a bunch of #smaugust sketches to share, and a Portrait Adoption piece in progress.

The weekend was wonderfully productive, both with art and with getting my yurt winter-ready. (Because winter is coming WAY too fast. Guppy told me today, "It's getting dark because it's almost winter. It will be winter in just a week or so." *weeps*)

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!

I participated in the "HUGE" Facebook event promoting my art.
I was a vendor at AYP (a local music fest).
All Kickstarter rewards were sent!
I took a scary painting class!

There was the release of Adult Coloring Treasury 2, which I have 2 pieces in!
I picked blueberries!
I did a product pitch for a thing that I may or may not follow up on...

My favorite Guppy photo: http://hotlink.ellenmilliongraphics.com/ellen/baby/IMG_3800-sittingonafrog.jpg
I did a Goodreads giveaway for Serenitrix - almost 1700 people entered, which is exciting, but lead to no actual sales, so I'm not sure it was worth it...
