This is what I've been doing at night. One carving at a time, to add to the collection I'm designing for Stampington. I can't show you anything, obviously, but stay tuned. I'll probably be levitating with joy when the collection is published! This is one project I never saw coming but that made me so very happy! I'm reminded of the time I was sending my manuscript to book publishers -- my wise friend said: keep sending it out; after all, it only takes ONE editor to love it and sign you on. It's the same with art. It only took ONE editor to love my work and take me on (Jenny Doh), and it only took ONE publisher to give me my own stamp collection (Kellene Giloff).

One proviso: You have to keep working, working hard, never giving up on yourself and your work.

And now I have to go and vote. We have Provincial elections happening. Then after a few errands and a visit downtown to see Cori at Trimarchi's, and I'll be back to finish the carving!
