Latest Projects Completed and Quick Update  
I was out of town over the past four days, but I've worked hard today to catch up on chores and correspondences. And I am attempting to not panic over getting out all my holiday cards before Christmas arrives!

I finished two book cover designs for UK author Richard Denning recently:

And he's made mention of contracting me for future work! I've done bookmarks, post cards and a promo poster for him as well - all to do with these two books. I've not read them, so can't give an opinion on them. But they sound interesting and he's promised to send me copies once they are printed.

The other project completed was for UK author Helen Hollick - a book trailer for her Sea Witch trilogy. I'll place the embedded YouTube video

I'd much appreciate feedback/likes/etc for the video on YouTube. I've posted this to my various social sites for Avalon Graphics, but wanted to share with all of you as well. Forgive the redundancy if you've already seen these things.

I have much to accomplish over the next three weeks, but I will attempt to stay in touch. And I desperately want to find a little time for some random graphics and to write! Time management is key, right? *laughs*

Thank you to all of you for your longtime support and encouragement.

• I loved, loved, loved the season finale of Merlin! I need to watch it AGAIN.
Chainfire is FANTASTIC.
• I don't mind the cold weather. Coffee keeps me warm. :)

You know I love that video. <3

I'm so proud of you for all the work you've done, honey. You are amazing and I want to follow your example in doing so many things at once. One day, I hope. *snuggles*

Love to hear what you're doing, always. *smooch*

♥ Thank you honey. *snuggles* I really appreciate your never ending support and encouragement.

I can't multitask like I used to though *laughs* Thus my stress these days. *sighs*

The video is great! And so is your work, of course!

Not cold at all here but I still have lots of coffee (no Starbucks, unfortunately, have to be in Athens for that...)

Thank you so much!!! *hugs* I truly appreciate all your support, dear.

Glad you are warm! It is below freezing - I don't think it got above freezing once today. LOL I bet you have fantastic coffee where you are - one day I hope to find out!

Thank you for the up-date, dear!

The book covers are great - I like the one with yellow letters! I assume I would stop and have a longer look if I would stumble over them in a book store.

Same goes for the video! You have my full respect that you are able to make youtube-videos! I hardly find the play-button most of the time *g*

Great job and good to hear your work is appreciated and wanted from these people.

Good to hear from you too, dear! *hugs* I hope that you are well and we will catch up soon.

Thank you for the compliments on my work! You have always been kind and supportive - love you for that, dear. And I have no doubt that you could make YouTube videos if you set your mind to it. *winks*

You ROCK!! I'm so very glad your talent is being recognized. More jobs hopefully equals more money and more exposure which should equal more money..... you get the picture ;p

Try not to fret. There are only 24 hours in a day, and, you can only do so much. Relax and take care of yourself!

Hugs and love,

*blushes* Thank you Shelley *hugs* And you have perfect timing as I was just writing out your Christmas card!

I am trying to remain calm and only focus on what I can do each day. I'll get there. Thanks for the encouraging words ♥

It was a tiring trip *laughs* but I was glad that I didn't end up burying mum in the snow *g*

Always happy to hear from you, mate. Write whenever you have some time. I'm running around like a chicken with its head cut off myself. *laughs*
