A Tiny Life No. 3 avec black velvet chickelit

A repeat image, a collagey illustration from my etsy shop - this original sold tres quickly (hooray!) and we have upcoming plans to have a few giclee prints of this item in the shop in time for Christmas - which looms so close on the horizon. I have a wee break in the Teak Toppin' It action today and I'll spend that time puttering and tidying, organizing and filing and getting les office ready for the next busy round which begins again full force on Monday. Next up - my big annual graphic design project, a 12 page newsletter for a local hospital foundation. A giant 12 page jigsaw puzzle of photos and text that must magically and tres pleasingly (to the eye) fit together. It's a definite get your finicky meticulous In Design groove on, very different then the product design sketching with pencil and kneaded eraser that I do most of the time.

It's dark, windy, raining and messy this early morning. Another reason I felt like we needed a jolt of colour here today on this blog. I'm going to bundle up in rain gear and Miss D and I will have a very quick walk down to the park and back ... just so we can say we did ...

The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye but found by the heart
