More Dreams A-Comin' True...

I'm not very good at tooting my own horn (although I still keep meaning to learn to play the harmonica, but I suppose that's totally different, and I do like playing my own piano, even though it badly needs to be tuned... oh, sorry, digressing, as usual), not because I don't like people to pay attention to me, but because it's usually a little weird and awkward and embarrassing to be, like, "HEY, people, look at ME!"

Because that's usually immediately preceding the moment that I trip over my own feet and fall flat on my face, or fly through the air and land flat on my back in the middle of hundreds of fellow college students because I failed to notice that the sidewalk ended and the drop into a drainage ditch had begun....

.... sorry, there's that bad digression habit again...

BUT I've been lucky and honored enough to be selected as Etsy's Featured Seller for the next few days, and I just wanted to share and say a BIG BIG Thank YOU! to all of YOU, my friends, family, clients and customers who've been so supportive over the last year. I totally couldn't have made it this far without you.

And just because my drafting table looks very boring in that particular photo that I submitted to them, here's some more photos of my studio in its latest incarnation, because there are few things I like more than artistic voyeurism, so why not return the favor?

Thank you, both!

Sarah, now you see where I sat when I designed your logos... at the drafting table for the drawing, at the big PC for the editing (No Photoshop on the MacBook yet).
