Well, I've now finished commissioning the December issue of Craft Stamper magazine. It's weird working in publishing - thinking about Christmas in July! Many of the stamp manufacturers are in the same situation - they are having to come up with seasonal artwork about now (or in many cases they've already been there, done that already this year!).
Wishing away the year is one of the things I don't like about my job. I'm working on October issue right now - and the summer isn't even over yet!
