OK, I've renewed my membership again, but only for 6 months this time because my budget is tight. Hopefully in the fall things will be better. In the meantime I have been writing and publishing and designing. I've resuscitated PaperKnights Publishing Ltd. and I've been putting out a monthly flyer paid for by advertising. I started in January and it's still going and I'm enjoying the work. My shop is under a renovation and I'll be glad when its over.. but it needed revitalization. My Paul is doing better and back to his model boats.. a good sign. :) All is well generally.
