Now living in the United Kingdom...

Most times when I do a show or sell a piece of my artwork I'm happy that it has found the home where it belongs, but this time I'm feeling all sorts of separation anxiety. Maybe because it's this little guy and the fact that I'd just finished him... didn't have enough time with him. His name is GrungeBot No.5.

I packed him up to ship him along with 3 other pieces at the request of a museum in the UK for a Steampunk Exhibit. I've been watching the tracking and he's now there but being held for customs. Poor little guy. :o(
Look, his heart is breaking..

The museum representative has been very understanding and has promised that he will notify me the second the boxes arrive. He's also going to take pics once the pieces are in place... can't wait for that. But....  I still feel sad that I sent GrungeBot No.5.

They were so generous paying for all the shipping etc... and we're excited on both ends for the exhibit to be in place. If my pieces sell they're not even going to charge a consignment fee..  how much better does it get?

Well....  it would be better if I hadn't sent GrungeBot No.5 and I hope he comes home soon. I've given permission for 3 months possibly more if they still need/want the pieces. Too long for the little guy.....  and me.

Have a wonderful weekend... and send good wishes to GrungeBot No.5....that he gets out of customs soon and will be at his new (temporary) home at Stratford Upon Avon.

Best... Canace

I love him...he's absolutely adorable. Don't fret, they will take excellent care of him. If he was meant for a new home, it will happen, otherwise, he will come back to the nest : )

I miss him too! But I have every confidence that he will be fine and the UK will adore him! :)

Congrats to you and all the Bots for being exhibited in the UK. What an adventure. Happy that he gets to his new home on Monday.

I love him. I can see why you would want to keep him closer to home and your heart. Your little Bot is simply too adorable for words. I see he finally got through customs. I was afraid they might have thought he was an illegal alien!

Aaaah I can see why you're having separation anxiety but congratulations on having him in a steampunk exhibit.
