When it rains, it pours

Only three days until the Holly Jolly Christmas fair. Naturally everything happens at once, with extra work coming in at my busiest time, translation work, precis work (read a 1,000-word article in one language and write it up in another, in 100 words), and a commission which I was very happy to take on. The freelancer's life.


I couldn't resist the commission, a collage for a baby girl born on last month on Oct. 10.


And then I was itching to make the Tara Heart. It will be winging its way to France soon.

  2. Colette, it boggles the mind how you manage to accomplish so much! The commission for the baby is gorgeous - a treasure for a lifetime. And I am so flattered and grateful for you taking my little photo and haiku and creating such a beautiful piece of art. And with my favourite aqua colour background! I'm so spoiled - thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your kindness, generosity and friendship. xo
