  1. I’m Val Erde, I did the colouring for Luanne. Thanks for the mention of Luanne’s post on her blog but my blog is most definitely NOT a ‘pay-for-service’ site. I show vintage photos I’ve bought, collected and coloured in my spare time and while I do a little, part-time, paid work, it’s certainly not enough that I can make a living from it! And the work I did for Luanne in her current post was free. If you have a look at my blog you’ll see this was part of a freebie as celebration of 2 years blogging and I did it for eight people. 🙂
