Custom of the Week: Wish Bear

Happy Monday, Aledan Merfolk! Last week on Twitter I came across an article of another author who started out writing with My Little Pony! I was super excited to meet a fellow pony-collecting author, and eventually the conversation turned towards other 80’s cartoon/toys, with many people mentioning Care Bears. And I remembered I had recently seen a Care Bear custom that I’d been meaning to feature, so off I went to find it!

The nose! <3 I can honestly say that the nose is my favorite part of this one 🙂

Custom of the Week: Star Light Wishes

Happy Monday, Aledan Merfolk! I don’t know if it’s been super cold where you are lately, but I spent all weekend keeping the fire going in the fireplace and stabbing the chicken water with a knife because it kept freezing over (we have backyard chickens). So I’m bringing you this bright, summery pony today to help warm up!

Isn’t she stunning? I love the colors and all that curly hair <3

Welcome to the new(ish) Mermaids and Margaritas!

Happy Thursday, Aledan Merfolk! At the end of last year I told you Mermaids and Margaritas was moving to a new site, and here we are (same address, but self-hosted). Everything looks pretty similar to what it used to be, and everything should be moved over, but you’ll notice the colors aren’t so glaring and there’s some beautiful Erie artwork by Diana Beebe in the sidebar now (you can see the whole picture on the Home page).

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. Hubs and I had a very low-key but lots-of-food season. We played a lot of video games and watched a lot of movies and read a few books. Since THE HATE U GIVE (which you have to read), I’ve read THE PURLOINED POODLE (an IRON DRUID CHRONICLES short story, from the POV of Oberon the Irish Wolfhound), RED RISING by Pierce Brown, and it’s sequel GOLDEN SON (OMG THAT ENDING!), and a CP book that I loved but can’t tell you about yet. I dnf-ed WINTERSONG – I liked the first half okay, but the second half was too slow for me and I wasn’t that invested. I started TRUTHWITCH by Susan Dennard and THIS SAVAGE SONG by Victoria Schwab.

So, it’s 2017. Last year was both amazing (I signed with an agent!) and horrible (election and then Hubs lost his job for a month). I have to confess, I haven’t done a damn thing writing-wise since November. I did write a little Yule/Ocean fluff scene (I wrote it on Yule, set during Yule, because that’s how I roll), but I haven’t done any actual work. It’s time to hop back on that pony and take the reins, so I’m reading STORY FIX by Larry Brooks to make a plan to get Fie Eoin in shape.

Guess what else I’m getting in shape? ME. I know, everyone’s doing that in January, but it’s really really time to actually stick to it. So no drinking on weekdays, yoga at least twice a week, and I need to get to some cardio (now’s the time to do it – it’s cool enough to run outside right now. Come summer I’ll have to get a gym membership to run or do it at like 3am so I don’t die of heat stroke). Have I mentioned how much I hate running? But I have audiobooks now, so I’m hoping that’ll work better than music. They even make cleaning the bathroom not so bad.

And that’s the beginning to 2017. Newish website. Newish Me. But as always: working on Fie Eoin 😉 Have a wonderful beginning to your new year, Aledans, and I’ll see you back here on Sunday for a gorgeous custom pony!

A very happy Boudin. Just because.

Moving to a New Website!

Happy Friday, Aledan Merfolk! This is just a quick note to say that this site might start looking a little wonky over the next few weeks as I move to a self-hosted site from the current one. I’ve done it before with my vet’s website, but the hosting site and wordpress have moved some things around since then, so it’s taking me a little bit longer to figure it out 🙂 Please be patient, and when I return I’ll have a beautiful custom pony to start the new blog off right!

Custom Holiday Pony of the Day: Tootsie!

Happy Wednesday, Aledan Merfolk! We’re celebrating the holidays this week with a new holiday-themed custom pony every day! Some of them are Hasbro ponies that have been given the holiday treatment, while others are full-on customs for the holidays. I liked the single ringlet on Baby Stockings so much yesterday, that I decided today we’d go all-out ringlets with the holiday version of another G1 pony: Tootsie!

I love brushing pony hair, but a head full of ringlets just looks too adorable, don’t you think?
