I love that feeling when you realise the people you believe in the most believe in you right back...
When a friend came to stay last weekend, she produced some pages she'd torn out of Stylist magazine and said they made her think of me, and she hoped I'd be inspired.
A few days later, an envelope came through my door from my closest friend... with a postcard on which she'd written "Always Follow Your Dreams"... along with the very same article torn out of the same magazine for me.
One of my friends (turned-semi-published-author) has also just asked me to do the cover art for her book.
And not so long from now, Hannah will be getting the tattoos I designed her for Christmas.
It's lovely knowing that people want me doing my thing.
