Finally, good things have been happening. I passed probation and am now a full-time employee. I was at an arts and crafts show all weekend. It was my best show ever. I brought Spunky to work on and got a lot done. There's still a long way to go. I am very pleased with what is done though, he's really becoming an excellent example of how far I've come on this medium. I was also invited to participate in the Highland Games next year as a vendor, but...they require 50% celtic and they want me to do dogs. I don't think they understand how long it takes me to do one of these, but I'll give it my best show.
