Oh I'm so excited! :D I'll be there for sure. We should have a forum meet-up; put face to comments, as it were.

WHOOP! That's me done. Poohcarrot is 182 and I'm 184. I usually check obsessively and register more quickly but I was painting obsessively instead. Now I have to think about what my donation painting to the con auction will be. It's very tempting to paint what the folks collecting my work want me to paint but that seems naughty. And constricting.

I'm going to be Ysabell at Cabbagecon (just so I have an excuse to gorge on chocs & Stroompfwoffels) but I rather fancy being Nanny Ogg next year :twisted:
