Today was supposed to be the day of MSC retrieval. Sadly, the shop doesn’t have any. I like to think this is because many many cans were purchased in anticipation of Doll North 2014’s Masquerade. In this case, I wish many of you the best of luck with your entries.
On my side of things, this may mean when my last can runs out, I will have a temporary delay. The shop owner told me there will be another shipment in two weeks. Until then, it’s paint until I can’t paint anymore!
Got some new work moving now~! Hooray! Plus, there should be updates to some older work that hasn’t been seen in a little while. I had to take a small break from fantasy blushing — things were beginning to flake and crack and overall ruin much work. I’ve managed not to suffer too much. I didn’t have to start everything from scratch thankfully. But I did have to pull one piece back to the start :(
In other news, Canada Post went and increased the cost of shipping. Inevitable, but painful (haha… that almost got posted as paintful). A basic shipping with no extra insurance or signature required (7 days average delivery time) is now $13 (and some random invisible pennies). Express shipping (guaranteed within 3 days, without any additional insurance or signature requirement) is now $16. I rarely have to use anything above Express, and I haven’t checked the increase for American or International parcels.
Oh yeah, almost forgot. Got a working computer again. This means there can be nice camera pictures again instead of ‘the best I can do right now phone pictures.’
Finished Puki’s, and a nearly finished dragon~
Waiting approval and final additions for Kaz’s MNF (can’t remember the sculpt off hand), but otherwise these should all go out when my next payday comes around (at the end of the coming week)
Huh… Just realized when typing the tags for this entry that its all full of Fairyland dolls. That’s… never happened before.
I havent had a chance to send a pm yet, and its going to arrive really really fast, so I wanted to put it somewhere that darksstars parcel was dropped off with the post office early this afternoon in the interest of ensuring it arrives in time for the weekend meet up :3
I should be getting around to semding that pm shortly, but my phone has been acting funny and I cant discount that I might decide to throw it at the wall >.>
I took pictures to post. They too are on my phone. Fingers crossed it will load tumblr to upload them.
Happy new year from Can-Tan Studio! All the best in 2014!
Keep an eye out for updates as work begins again in the next day or two. I haven’t forgotten that there’s a few PM’s to respond to as well.
Taking a ‘things are drying’ break to post here for the first time in far too long. How are you Tumblr? I’m sorry for my absence
Tonight is marathon painting night until the msc runs out. Then there’s a. Msc-run tomorrow, followed by more work Sunday, and after an appointment, possibly more painting Monday. Exciting isn’t it?
Tonight’s first update is brought to you by Song, my painting buddy, and Soom Necy. Below her you will see the various heads that received acrylic work tonight - one Elfdoll, and one Iplehouse belonging to Edtel, two soom heads belonging to myself and AgentPanda, and one Soom sphaler claw belonging to Fasia. The claw received a minor correction and is currently drying from msc while all the rest have paint drying right now.
These will be uploaded to the Facebook page later. Now my phone is dying and requires charging. See you next update!
Bird & Lace’s Spectacular Migidoll and Peak’s Woods Ordering Extravaganza~!
As promised Lovelies, here are the details of our Migidoll and Peak’s Woods ordering period.
While the website is still set to open February 10th for our stocking order, we will be sending in a preliminary order for…
I’m all for spreading around more Canadian businesses. Thus this is being spread around. Please give Bird and Lace some love!
When I get home, there are pics to take an upload. One waitlist person has had work being done while I was pending contact with another, and two spots cleared up. This being said, the person who was on the waitlist is pretty much done now, so while one spot filled immediately, its going to open up again very shortly.
I make no sense right now. I think.
But the main point: there are going to be complete pics tonight. When I get back home.
I’ve done some minor edits to the waitlist on DoA, but aside from sending out the price PM, I haven’t yet contacted the next person on the waitlist. That will happen tonight provided my electronics don’t fail me. Or my body. I’m so tired.
This past weekend’s round of faceup work. I have a random snow day so i’ll be doing more work today. Seen here PlasticFantastic’s DD Mashiro, darksstars Dragondoll ZiLong, and Kaz’s fairyland girl (still can’t remember the sculpt name im sorry @_@)
