Do as I say, not as I do...

A lovely 4th. Good food, good company (being Jake), beautiful weather, more hammock time spent unwinding my tired brain. We made homemade bread! My parents unexpectedly bought us a kitchenaid - the REALLY nice model with all-metal construction. Bread has become super easy and delicious. (Though, our OVEN is a bit of a problem. We've got a new one on order, because ours has a short.) I anticipate, what with the prices of things, that we'll be making a lot of fresh bread. $5 for a loaf of wonderbread? I think not. Devoured our farm share today, except for a few bags of greens that we chopped up and froze because they were getting wilty.

In celebration of the fourth, I was a capitalist, and GOT THROUGH THE QUEUE. No, seriously, I finished the EMG queue. Everything is up. That's all she wrote. (Except the silhouette stuff! Still ironing that out, folks!)

I totally prefer to put up little bits of things, not 60 some designs in two days. It's better - saleswise! - to put things up in groups of 5 or 10, and give an impression of freshness and activity. But I also detest making people wait around so long. Some of those pieces have been in the queue since APRIL. I'm sure the artists are just as happy that I'm done already, darn it.

The process IS a lot easier than it used to be. I think that if I can get submissions open a little more frequently (2 or 3x a year), that may make a good balance. Ideally, of course, I'd be able to get work up rather continuous-like, but I just haven't been able to make that happen.

Anyway, go check out the awesome new artwork I've got up: http://www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/fantasyart/

You will be delighted. There are some mind-boggling pieces up. 1391 of them, to be exact, from 188 artists.


Wow. That's a lot!

No wonder I'm tired...

EDIT TO ADD: I was exaggerating! I think Wonderbread is only $3. I don't actually eat Wonderbread - but the GOOD (wholegrain/organic/high protein) bread that I usually get is up above $5 now, unless you catch it on sale.
