Jitterbug Lotteryness!


It's Tuesday again, so that means something else is happening with the OF Jitterbug edition! Today is the official start of the lottery! Yay! That means, if you are a member of the VA Yahoo Group, you can now put your name in for a chance to win the ability to purchase one of the remaining OF Jitterbugs (if you haven't already entered, of course)! Whew, I've got to get off this computer & back to work. All morning I've been posting everywhere I can think of about the lottery- I'm trying to get ahold of all of my customers, as my contact list is rather old & out of date! I'm still finishing the last few Jitterbugs this week (they take a long time with that crazy pattern! What was I thinking?!), so they'll be all set when I pull the lottery on the 23rd. I might just take a break for an hour or two though, as I woke up this morning feeling rather congested. That happened to me last week, so I rested for a bit, and it really refreshed me. Hopefully I can repeat that a second time! No time to get sick- too much to do! And hopefully soon, a new horse...? ;)

Happy day after Labor Day, folks!
Hope you were able to spend your holiday differently than I- laboring in the studio (unless that's what you do for fun!). But that just means I now have the ability to say: Jitterbug is debuting! The official announcement is coming today on the VelasquezArtistry Yahoo Group... that is, if I can find where I put my camera so I can take the official photos...! (Sigh... what am I going to do with myself...?) Anyhow, yes, I'm going cross-eyed, I'm seeing blue masking tape in my dreams, and my hands cramp up at the end of the day, but I think it is all worth it. I wanted him to be kick-butt! Speaking of that, the previous project mentioned here got set aside for a while. I finished the claybody Brig & fired him, and started to paint him (dapple rose grey), but the dappling process was kicking my butt, so he was put on hold. I needed to get back to my plethora of in-progress JB's.... In case you are curious, my plan right now is: Announcement- Tuesday 9/2, OF Jitterbug Sale (10 pieces, first come-first serve) Tuesday, 9/9, OF Jitterbug Lottery (10 pieces) Tuesday 9/16. There will be 20 OF pieces in the run, plus one Test that I will be keeping. So, without further ado, here is a larger, unofficial picture of the boy. Enjoy!
