Words can't really express my gratitude for all the kind and beautiful comments from yesterday's post. Every single on of them made my heart swell with love. You can't imagine how much you all lift me up and make me want to just give you gigantic smooches and squishes. Thank you all so very much.
I was thinking about all the kind comments I received yesterday while I was trying to work on the spread for my BOD (Book of Days) journal. I also had some music going on in the background, as I always do. There was this serendipitous moment where I stopped working and looked up at the computer, still having the comments from yesterday's post on the screen, and my eyes landed on my lovely Pamikins comment where she wrote: "please understand, your legacy will live on Your art speaks volumes, it will always live on" (What a HUGE compliment!) and the song in the background was playing and the lyrics were "She's still got infinity ahead of her". And I stopped in my tracks, poured some gesso over the page I had originally started and began working on this:
|"She's still got infinity ahead of her..." napkin, Dylusions, stencils, die cuts, Silks acrylic glazes, glittery border stickers, Aquamarkers, and shimmery (I wanted to call it pearlescent...but spell check is telling me that's either not a word or REALLY not spelled right) acrylic paint|
And, to a lesser extent, this song also gets some credit:
Really, all the comments from yesterday and every day before share the credit. I know I wouldn't be where I'm at know if it weren't for the loving and the encouragement and the keep-at-it's that folks have been kind enough to bestow on me. I guess what I'm saying is that it takes a village to raise a Sweet Red Clover...and you all are my village.
