Doggy Distraction

2.75" American Kennel Club Beagles in a Basket Dog Christmas FigureI had to take a bit of a detour over the last few days.  My precious beagle puppy cut his leg open and had to get stitched back up.  Now this active little puppy is going stir crazy since we can't let him do much or he'll undo the stitches.  I can't even begin to tell you how hard it is to try to hold my puppy and work on design projects...
In case you share my passion for beagles, check out the treasury I made:  http://www.etsy.com/treasury/4c060039c3196d918cf40521/bonkers-for-beagles?index=2

To add to the frustration, I took on a project for someone who doesn't seem to know exactly what they want.  When I submitted a design, she said "I don't like the colors. I don't like the person."  It took everything I had to not explode on her.  The problem is not that she didn't like it.  The problem is that she didn't help me at all in understanding what she wanted me to change.  I replied with a lot of specific questions and pointed out that I didn't want to copy exactly the stock images she had sent because that would be wrong.  Her response was that stock images are used by lots of people.  True....but they are supposed to be used by people who pay to use them.  The reason they put a big old copyright mark in the middle of the image is because they don't want you to use it for free.  No matter how much she might like the image, I don't think she'll be too happy when someone sues her for using it in her logo without permission.
