Here's the non-display side of Winnie, the Windows pony. The other symbol is the same (not a mirror image). They are hand-painted, so there is some slight variation.

The hair should arrive some time this week. Her mane will have 4 colors in vertical stripes that match her symbol. ^_^

Almost finished with the Winged Melody Hybrid...I was working fiendishly on her over the weekend. I've decided to name her Silver Blossom. Her designs are quite intricate. Reminds me of gift wrap, LOL! Pics coming later this week. She's going to be the background pony for September.

For all the people asking about Shadow Watcher: I'm going to place her up for sale during the last week of October. Because she incorporates a lot of new techniques & products, I just want to keep an eye on her & make sure she's stable before sending her to a new home. No, I haven't set a price yet. Please keep an eye on the journal during October. ^_^

Also, I spent a lot of time preparing some (non-custom) ponies for sale. I went through the collection again...it's getting harder to part with these ponies. Still need to groom & repair a few of them, take some more pictures, and work on the descriptions. Posting ponies for sale is hard work!

They will be listed sometime during the upcoming weekend, all at one time.
This batch will include:
-About 40 G3 ponies, mostly MIB
-A dozen or so G3 babies, out of package
-G1 baby ponies, newborns, teeny tiny
-Mail order ponies in various conditions
-Almost a full set of flutters
-A bunch of G1s, a little bit of everything from big brothers to sweetheart sisters

Okay, I think that's it. Whew!

O_O Your downsizing collection is AMAZING. I've never once had a flutter pony, and the only time I saw one 'live' was with a childhood friend whose uncle worked in a toy company of some sort or other.

Sweetheart sisters! I remember seeing those in the store as a child and going 'ugh, MLP knockoffs.' >_< Bah. Should've grabbed them when I had the chance.

So, is the Windows pony 95, 98, or XP? XD

Thanks. ^_^ I still think I have too many ponies...I just don't have anywhere to put the darn things!

I thought the Sweetheart Sisters were quite weird when I first saw them. I didn't like them either. However, they grow on you. I think they look pretty nice now. "Celtica" is one of my favorite customs in the SHS pose.

Hmmmm...I think this pony's an XP? I don't really know!

Sorry, I don't have those ponies. I think they were released for only a short period of time.

Hmmmmm...a lot of people are asking about them. I'm telling everyone to wait until they are posted. It's easier for me to keep track of the holds that way. I will be listing everything this upcoming Monday.

Something corporate indeed :). Winnie looks great, and I can't wait to see her rooted.

Oh god... *froths at the mouth at the chance of getting more ponies* I can't wait to see what you have up. I'd especially love to get my mitts on some Big Brothers, G1s and some G3s. x3 And Winnie looks amazing, especially the way you did her symbols. Heheh, Bill Gates would be proud. :P
