just bought myself a Christmas gift that will keep on giving me joy and
inspiration for the whole New Year. How delighted I was to receive a complimentary
copy of this fine publication created by two excellent and professional
storytellers. In this article I will share the scoop on Working
smARTS, the new monthly electronic newsletter designed for professional
children's artists. And it is not only loaded with useful information,
it is priced way below its value!
