Saying goodbye

25th October
I am ever so sorry to have missed the lovely evnt otganised by the sweet Vanessa of A FAnciful Twist.
Please, if you do visit for the party, do not think I couldn't be bothered.
Tonight I am saying goodbye to my sweet Taz that I have been fostering since July.
Tomorrow, I will be with him for his last little moment on Earth.

But, I would like him to be the star of this post.

I love you Taz.

My baby's gone


Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Ze second book! (Preview) + dolls WIP

Pssssstt!! Me again.

You know? it has been a few months since I have been preparing Ze second book.

This time, I haven't been through a publisher but through Blurb.

You can try it too, it is fun and easy.

I thought it would be nice to gather photos of some of my artwork and present some new unpublished stories.
Anyway, here is a preview of the firts 15 pages.
Hope you will like it.
Just click on the book cover.

And here are some photos of work in progress.

I am currently working for

Benjamin Pollock's in London and also for a lovely store in Spain called Bambolinos.

My dolls travel more than I do.

Speaking of which, if you have read "The Orphans of Sainte Cécile", one of the characters, Solange, has finally found a family ( in real life!!!) she is now in the heart of Texas in a super ranch. Her little mum, Carolina, has made her a fantastic house! I am very impressed!

You can see more about Carolina's family right here on the Shannon Ranch website.

Oh, by the way, pleeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase, keep on writing to me and sending news, I don't have time to visit everybody but I absolutely LOVE to hear about what you've been up to.

A bientôt!
