Hoping this post is OK - I am hopefully going back to school in February for certification in Medical Front Office with Billing and Coding. I am currently unemployed and the school is a 60 mile commute round trip. I am running sales on both of my online shops indefinitely to stockpile some funds for gas money and other expenses, plus I'm going through an incredibly tough time financially right now. I just need to survive the next few months so I can get my life back. Jewelry, glass art, some kitty toys, and crocheted fingerless gloves are on the Etsy shop. The crocheted stuff and the cat toys will be transferred to Artfire when the listings expire. Use coupon code SNOWSTINKS20 to get 20% off your order. http://www.freyasfire.etsy.comMy Artfire store is brand new and could really use some sales there to boost more interest in the shop. This shop features my uber-potent, 100% organic catnip herbal blend kitty toys. My friends have lovingly nicknamed my catnip blend "kitty crack," and swear that their cats that normally turn a nose up to plain catnip go nuts over these toys. They are sturdy and can handle rough play from a multiple cat household. There is a storewide 20% off sale there as well - no coupon needed. http://www.artfire.com/users/FreyasFireCustom orders are kinda iffy at the moment - it depends on what item you're looking at. Once school starts, I probably won't have time to do any custom work until I graduate. Feel free to email or convo me with questions. Also, if you would like items from both shops, go ahead, place the orders, pay via paypal, then email me or convo me, especially if you have 2 different screen names for each site. I will then combine packaging/shipping and refund any difference over a dollar. If First Class shipping totals over $5, and the items will fit in a envelope or small box, I can upgrade the shipping to Priority Mail Flat Rate for $4.95 for the flat rate envelope, or $5.20 for the small flat rate box. Please indicate in your email if you'd like that option. Thank you!!
The sculptor stressed that he was inspired to create this work by his recent travelling around Ukraine. "I was shocked of what I saw: ruins, poverty, a total decay. However on TV the politicians tell us that everything is fine and will be even better. But Ukraine is different. Now you will see the way it looks."

Mykola Shmatko and his sculpture titled "Among Emperors" LUHANSK, Ukraine -- A sculptor in the eastern Ukrainian city of Luhansk has unveiled a bronze bust of President Viktor Yanukovych titled "Among Emperors ," RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service reports. Mykola Shmatko told journalists at the presentation on August 3 that he decided on the title because he sees Yanukovych as one in a series of personalities that includes Roman Emperor Caligula and Alexander the Great.

With the economy the way it is, and as an artist myself, I know we can all use more venues for our work.What if we got together and formed an artist’s co-op for the sake of throwing our own art fairs around town? Strip malls and shopping centers might consider us a special attraction and give us a break on space; if our only costs were for table rentals it might be affordable to do it every weekend, or at least once or twice a month.What do you think? This isn’t something I’d attempt alone, but a group of us acting together would have what it takes to make this work. If you’re interested in getting together to discuss this idea further, please contact me. Or if you know people who might be interested, please spread the word.~ Laramie Sassevillelaramie at dreamspell dot net

Nicolai Shmatko has presented his new sculpture "Ukrainian Aurora" and a new sculpture group "Christ's Appearance to the Apostles". It has taken 15 years for him to create the project with the Twelve Apostles.
In his sculptures Nicolai Shmatko decided to deviate from the Bible apostles known to us. "In this sculpture there are our contemporaries, people who live near us. Only Jesus Christ is an imaginary person as nobody can pretend to be like him. We can also see Peter, his favourite disciple, doubting Thomas and Judas. Among the known Bible persons I have embodied myself and my sons"- Nicolai Shmatko retells. look a photo http://www.kingofmarble-shmatko.com/engver/p1_project_en.html The preliminary cost of this sculpture is 1.5 mln. Euro.
The other sculpture of the Nicolai Shmatko "Ukrainian Aurora" has taken him half a year. He retells about it, "Aurora is a morning star which lights up the road of travelers and wayfarers. I decided to accent attention on this and tried to find a woman who can personify national pathos but I could not for a long time. And finally I found national Ukrainian colouring in Julia Timoshenko, Prime Minister of Ukraine".look a photo http://www.kingofmarble-shmatko.com/engver/p4g1f.html Nicolai Shmatko estimates this sculpture in 500 thousand Euro.
The sculptor noted that he is a non-party man and has not any political sympathies to Julia Timoshenko but her image helped him to create our contemporary Aurora.

I just finished updating my Cafe Press site will all the recent goodies I painted. For those that are out of the loop, I broke two of my personal records. One for the number of paintings in a day (13) and the other for the number of paintings in a week (18). So needless to say, it took me two days to get everything loaded to the site. Let me know what you think of the new paintings! http://www.cafepress.com/ravenfrog/ For those that were upset about how quickly the cthulhu painting sold, he's on there too. http://www.cafepress.com/ravenfrog/6233080
