Finally got around to finishing Floral Enchantment and taking the pictures of all the new customs.

Introducing Quinny, the Snow Princess.

Banana Rama, the banana themed custom.

And Floral Enchantment, the TAF rose-scented pony. Oh, my whole room smells like roses now. ^_^

I gave Flanker, the big brother pony, a few more coats of paint and things are looking better. I'll give him a day or two to dry, then start painting his eyes & symbols.

These ponies will be shipped as soon as I can make it to the post office. Saturday, May 6th at the latest. I appreciate your patience. ^_^

Also, it seems like my webhosting is experiencing some difficulties right now...I'll answer e-mails as soon as I can access it again. It should be back up by tomorrow. *crosses hooves*

And who can forget about the Midsummer Contest? Please help me pick a theme by participating in this poll. The results will be posted next Sunday.
Poll #720213 Midsummer theme

What should be the theme of this year's Midsummer contest?

Rainbow's End
One Starry Night
Sugar 'n' Spice
Seashore Surprise
Far, Far, Away
Wild Wonders
Other? (add a comment with your suggestion)

Addendum 5/9/06: The 2006 theme is going to be "Wild Wonders". I'm surprised at how close the voting was. However, I didn't realize that only LJ users could vote. Next time, I might try a different polling program or encourage anonymous posts.

Oh I can't wait for the contest this year! Wild Wonders sounds like a really fun theme..I was torn between that and Rainbows End.

I can't see the ponies right now, the site won't load, so I'll come back a bit later and check. =)

At first I thought it was just me. The site was up sporadically over the last hour or so. Now, I'm sure the webserver is down right now. Hopefully they will have it back up soon. I might have to think about changing webhosts again...

Oh ok then, good to know it's not just something at my end then.

Eep, hope you won't have to change webhosts, I know how much of a pain that can be.

I just adore Floral Enchantment - I can only imagine how long painting all those roses must have taken you. And I like that she's rose-scented, that must be a very nice touch =)

*laugh* And here if I'd gone with Wild Wonders, I'd have broken the tie. Oh well, the coin flip spoke and so I voted...

As for the ponies, I love them all! However, if Sparkling Lemonade hadn't wiped my surplus for awhile, I would be all over Floral Enchantment like white on rice. She's beautiful. The symbols look almost like they were done with a one stroke method...it's wonderful.

The green hair on Floral really came out nicely! The contrast works so well; definitely one of my favorite designs by you thus far in terms of color scheme.

Quinny is gorgeous, and Bananarama is eyecatching.

I think that you should do Wild Wonders as the theme (I can't figure out how to actually vote lol, that's how dumb I am.) They all turned out amazing. Love your ponies!
