Pimpin' - yuki_onna
Welcome to the Mall of Shadesong!

Okay, here we go.

I have some immensely talented friends and readers.

There is a major shopping spree coming up for most of you.

These, to my mind, are two great tastes that taste great together.

So! Writers, artists, musicians, et cetera, please pimp yourself in the comments below! Please include a link and a blurb. (If you do commissions, that's good to mention, too.) I'll organize and repost in categories on Monday.

People shopping for $WINTERHOLIDAY - shop here! Give your money to a starving artist, not Wal-Mart.

So. Hit me!

(Click the tag for last year's mall!)

You still have come up with some of the coolest uses of lj I've ever seen. Just sayin'.

Pimping my novel! 17th-century slipstream, with theatre, madness, thieves, and all that fun stuff!

Shiny reviews here! (Scroll waaaay down.)

I make art that tells stories.

"[Her linocuts] have a bold, stark, historical flavor with strong stylization and symbolism. The watercolor pictures are softer, dreamier, full of super-saturated colors common to many forms of African and African-American art: rich melting browns, deep golds and earthy reds, jungle-leaf greens, limpid blues. Most of the subjects are women, or nature, or some combination of the two; urban imagery is also common, sometimes overlapping the others. Many pictures are surreal, symbolic, allegoric; others are closer to realistic. These are the dimpled footprints left by one artist's walk through life."

I sell my paintings and prints on Etsy...and I also do commissions! To see more, check out therebirthofme!

I sell daydream-inspired jewelry on Etsy. Monday will be the last day of my huge November sale. http://possibledaydreams.etsy.com
25th-Nov-2009 03:35 pm (UTC)
Okay, realistically probably Thursday or Friday will be the last day of my huge November sale, because I'm defending my dissertation on Wednesday and won't have time to de-sale stuff before then :)

Interior Design student here! Will work for free, provided I have permission to keep snapshots for my portfolio. I realize distance may be difficult to circumvent, but if I can get pictures of the space you're trying to re-work I will make suggestions by email and await photos of the results. This is my passion and I'm good at it, so pick my brain! Contact me at laurapyrzynski@gmail.com

Every week I have Too Much Challah. I'm told it's better than Cheryl Ann's. :) By default, I can offer a dozen rolls or one six-strand challah every week for $3 (made from 500g of challah dough); I'd prefer that you come get it (in Medford). If I get enough commissions (see below) I could do delivery.

Usual ingredients: white all-purpose wheat flour, white whole wheat flour, eggs, water, canola oil, agave syrup, turbinado sugar, yeast, salt.

I will take commissions for additional loaves. I can adapt to use honey, white sugar, all white flour, regular whole wheat flour, higher proportion of white wheat flour, vegan, gluten-free flour mix (baked in a loaf pan; one can't braid GF bread). But note that the GF bread will be exposed to gluteny stuff. If I get lots of commissions in the Cambridge/Somerville/Medford/Belmont/Watertown area, I'll spend a couple of hours Friday midday doing deliveries.

Oooh, I'd love a six-strand loaf for a party I'm hosting on the 13th of Dec.

The Mermaid's Madness just came out last month. If anyone feels like giving a copy of one of my books as a Christmas gift, contact me and I'll send you a signed bookplate to go with it. (U.S. only, I'm afraid.)

I sell buttons/badges and bumper stickers at Nancy Buttons.

There's a 5000 slogan list, developed for fandom for over 30 years: puns, geekery, wiseass....

I do custom buttons.

I'll be at Darkover this weekend. It's a fantasy con with an esoteric track and very good music.

"I knit so that I don't kill people"

"I gave my books their own room. Now they want the whole house."

"It's not a small world. It's a big world that's folded over a lot."

Sihaya Designs Jewelry! My winterholiday items just went live, and there are still plenty left!
25th-Nov-2009 01:54 pm (UTC)
I do custom, non-traditional dreamcatchers for the non-traditional dreamer. I have many designs in my shop as well and if none of those work for you I'm also happy to do custom work.

Here's a link to photos of every dreamcatcher I've created.

And here's the shop: Catch A Dream

beautiful work! I think I know a few folks who might like one of those for the holidays. :)

"Aaron's art is like a shotgun blast in the middle of the night. Something wakes you up and makes you wonder where the hell it came from."

~John Wick, Author of Legend of the Five Rings, Houses of the Blooded, and Shotgun Diaries.

An evocative and otherworldly collection of over 100 full color images from an emerging creator of fantasy, horror, and science fiction illustration. Acevedo's work, an unusual mix of traditional media and modern digital techniques, has won critical acclaim, including multiple Origins awards. This collection includes selections from many popular properties, including Call of Cthulhu, A Song Of Ice And Fire, Deadlands, Warlord, Legend of the Five Rings, Suzerain, and many more.

See aaronace.com for more details.
25th-Nov-2009 02:18 pm (UTC) - Re: Hope this isn't too long...
And the title of the book would be nice, I'm still half asleep... Tomorrowland: The Art of Aaron Acevedo. It's available as a pdf, softover, and casewrap hardcover.
25th-Nov-2009 02:21 pm (UTC)
I do travel and nature photography. You can see a selection of photos here -- http://www.melissakuhnell.com/portfolio.html -- (the site isn't working well at the moment, but it's functional).

I can send out matted prints in sizes from 5x7 to 11x24.
25th-Nov-2009 02:33 pm (UTC) - Mostly clay stuff
Hi! I primarily make clay things. I have an etsy store with recently reduced prices.
I also have a lot more that's not in the store- so if you see something I've made that you like, I can almost certainly reproduce it.
A quick visual reference of what I currently have on hand of a certain size.
I also make magnets, jewelry, paint, and more paint, and most recently started in on some steam punk designs.
25th-Nov-2009 02:37 pm (UTC)
Pimping my Etsy shop. Mostly I only make stitch markers, although I can reproduce any of those designs in earrings. I've got a whole bunch more that I am planning to photograph and post over the long weekend.
25th-Nov-2009 02:43 pm (UTC)
Also, since she's not a reader of your journal, but I own many many pairs of purpleshiny earrings and love her work to pieces, I'll pimp my friend Riv's etsy store She makes gorgeous steam punk inspired jewelry from found objects. I am particularly in love with her designs featuring vintage watch gears (tested and completely free of radioactive paint!)
25th-Nov-2009 02:46 pm (UTC)
I make wire wrapped antique key jewelry with watch parts, brass stampings, beads and crystals, vintage pen nibs, and whatever other cool things I find. Also wire swirl earrings and other wire work pendants.

My Etsy shop has full descriptions for all listed items.

My website has photos of everything I've done, including items that are not yet listed on Etsy.

I am able to take commissions if I have the materials. Normally I do 'right of first refusal' where the requester gets first crack at the finished piece.

25th-Nov-2009 02:55 pm (UTC) - how about the gift of customized voicemail?
I do voiceover work and can give you a really snazzy outgoing voicemail message. If you're a FOS (Friend of Shadesong), I'll cut you a message for $25.

Check out my demo recordings on my MySpace page--especially the Fun with Voicemail demo. You'd be surprised how much fun you can have with just a change in voice style. Add in a little creativity with your script and you'll have the voicemail everyone will envy :-)

I will happily pimp Stays Crunchy in Milk, my novel of pop culture, friendship and growing up.

I'll even leave the official blurb:

They were four: Wereberry the strawberry werewolf, Choco-Ra the chocolate mummy, The Creature From the Fruit Lagoon (his friends call him “T.C.”), and Cherrygeist the… well she was a ghost. At least, until she wasn’t. One day, she wasn’t there at all. And then they were three.

Three friends who have sworn to search for her to the ends of the world and beyond – to find and save her.

Through familiar lands to places startling and unknown – across looming castles, endless battlefields and simple brick roads – these three friends will hunt and search and scour every inch. Along the way they’ll have to rely on a whole lot of luck and a little bit of charm, but mostly each other.

A fairy tale for the super-sugar generation, Stays Crunchy in Milk is a road novel packed with 100% of your recommended daily allowance of essential action and adventure. And it’s a delicious part of a nutritious breakfast.

25th-Nov-2009 03:12 pm (UTC)
What a nice idea! I have a little etsy store - Ashes of Roses Designs - where I sell my faerie and fairy tale inspired jewelry and hair chips :).

25th-Nov-2009 03:42 pm (UTC)
Yay for Mall of Shadesong!

I make custom crochet baby blankets in whatever color you choose (price varies based on yarn selection; $25 for acrylic, plus S&H). I also make sleeves/arm warmers.

Examples can be seen here.

As these are custom items, delivery time for each project varies, and will be discussed before deposit and commencement of project. :)
25th-Nov-2009 03:47 pm (UTC) - Tarot
I do Tarot, Medicine Wheel, and Totem Animal Readings. There are some listed on my website at www.stonetalker.com, or people can contact me through Live Journal. I'm happy to provide gift certificates.

It is very kind of you to do this -- what a cool and innovative idea!

25th-Nov-2009 03:48 pm (UTC)
OH HAI. I'm the all-purpose crazywoman in charge of Wyrding Studios. I make a living by playing with fire and hammers and pretty rocks, which is pretty much the most awesome job ever. A lot of you are already familiar with my wirework, but I've also ventured into hand-forged copper and brass (and soon, sterling) this year, including a line of hand-forged leaves.

I also do something called Instant Gratification Monday every Monday night, where I do custom work in real-time with a webcam running so you can watch your shiny being made. On Cyber Monday, I'll be doing an all-day edition, with discounts!

... and, of course, there's our annual Black Friday sale, which this year will include a special on earrings - $12 a pair or 3 pairs for $30 or 12 pairs for $100. And free shipping on orders over $50. Plus a complete and utter lack of holiday music or perky salespeople.
