anyhow... we did 10 of the shots yesterday, and will be finishing up on Wednesday (the paint is currently drying on a 4 poster bed and we are in the middle of fabricating a faux stone bridge!).
i do not have the pictures uploaded (we like the shots to be a surprise for people), but since no one likes buying into something blindly, i will upload a few samples tonight probably, and post them then. i can tell you (for the 5 people that didnt already know) that this year's theme is fairy tales. the following are featured:
♥ Jack & the Beanstalk
♥ The Little Mermaid
♥ Sleeping Beauty
♥ Snow White
♥ The Princess & the Pea
♥ The Three Little Pigs
♥ Little Red Riding Hood
♥ The Ugly Duckling
♥ The Three Bears
♥ Billy Goats Gruff
the price will be $15, First Class shipping for the US is included. if you are out of country, please let me know and i will figure out the cheapest shipping cost for you. i wish i could give them all out for free, but the $15 only covers the cost of getting them printed, and just for supplies alone we have already paid over $1,000. WHICH I KNOW IS TOTALLY INSANE, but it is honestly the only thing i have ever done in my life that i can say is a labour of love. and crazymaking.
so if you are interested, please let me know by Thursday. my husband is freaking out and chomping at the bit to order these ASAP (he is patience-challenged). comment here if interested, i will accept payment through Paypal (or his Paypal as he is fronting the cash).
also... shhhhh... but if you would like one but are a little strapped, i might convince him to do a second run. i cannot guarantee this, but i know how it is at this time of year, and i dont like excluding people who might want one and were so supportive to what i do. it was honestly remembering other's enjoyment that kept me going at 2 a.m. as i stitched little gnomes and ran out of Coke Zero.
xoxo to you all.
eta: when making payment, please make it to firstname.lastname@example.org. include in the comments section of your payment that it is for the Eloise 2010 calendar, and your username. also, please make sure your address on file with Paypal is current. i have had a problem with that lately!
