Guess who's back, back in town?


It's Liz and Tiddles! Re-connected and raring to go! Well, only the first bit is true, but non-the-less, here we are! It's amazing how much more I seem to get done when I'm Internet-less - I've gardened, cleaned out drains, painted window frames, baked cakes, ooh all sorts of exotic things! I've sent Tid off to another publisher, the Piccadilly Press, so let's see what happens. This time, I made a dummy of an actual Fluffville book. Fingers, as always, firmly crossed! You know, the less I go anywhere, the more I like it. I love being here, in the company of my three lovely cats, surrounded by the countryside in this wobbly old cottage.... It's pretty much close to being in Heaven for me, and I don't seem to need much. If it weren't for those horrible bills, I would just stay like this. I know if I get a 'mega job', it will only be a matter of time before I burn out again. I wish I could just stay like this, I really do....

Another lovely illustration! Good luck with the publishers, they would be mad not to take you on. I know the internet is a terrible time-drainer but I love it for the inspiration it gives me. Oops! I'm still procrastinating!;)

Hey Jessie! Just replied over on yours! We must have been doing it at the same time!

I couldn't agree more about the time wasting part. It's amazing how much I get done when I am not online, but I agree - it gives inspiration. Would never have found your beautiful work ladies if I didn't blog. Hope you are both well:))

Hi Liz, thanks for the comment and am so glad you're back and I just returned home today after an extended visit to my parents house to help out a bit. I feel the same way as you about being home and working on art as well as being surrounded by kitties!
Good luck with Tiddles and the publisher!
