Well, I've been awfully busy, so it's been difficult to update the ol' DA account. I can't believe from April until now I haven't done much of anything on here. I apologize for that. Maybe things will get better soon.
For those of you following the Erik Plush Project, we have only 75 Eriks left.
and I have been talking some about the possibility of doing ANOTHER Erik plush. This one would be dressed in Erik's Red Death costume from the night of the masquerade ball. We're pretty sure the mask would still be removable. Erik would look about the same underneath. We might change the expression on his face. And he might have a special mask for being Red Death.
is working on the sketches, but there is no rush for her to finish and post them because we won't start making those until the last 75 original Eriks are sold.
During the month of September, my husband and I bought some land in the middle of nowhere and we hope to be moving out there sometime in the next six months or so. Have to build something to live in first, though. Details on that as it happens. I imagine there will be plenty of agricultural pictures going up soon--well drilling, water treatment plant installation, fence work, road grading, cattle purchasing, horse trailering... We've already sort of got the horses because we knew someone who had some horses that needed a new home, so that's exciting, too. But of course, it's slow going. What do I expect? It took ten years just to FIND the land. It's not like everything else is going to fall together over night.
Still working as a school counselor which gives me very little time for photography and writing. Double damn. I expect this will be the last year. Details as they unfold.
In the meantime, please enjoy what few photos I am able to post at this time.
