One of Those Amazing Things....

I have several things I wanted to post this week, including some thank you's, an award and a few photos I love (playing with the camera again - lol). I will post them tomorrow. I was all prepared to do those today then the most amazing, touching reminder that "the Universe is listening to me" kind of thing happened.

Last week, I received notice of a sale on Etsy. Much to my surprise it was the sale of my "Heart of Darkness". Now I know - I offered it up for sale, but when I saw it had sold my heart kinda sank. I had a very hard time sending it off to an unknown man back east. Every now and then you do a piece that you love, but as an artist - you put them out there. Heart of Darkness was one of those for me - hard to let go.

So...jump to this morning... I'm checking my blog and find a post from Tabitha in my giveaway. She mentioned my piece and that she would be posting about it later???? I was puzzled and then the light bulb turned on. The man who had purchased it had mentioned it was a gift for his other half - but never mentioned her name. I'm off to Tabitha's profile to see her location - them off to Etsy to look at the info there - was it possible my precious, much loved piece went to Tabitha who's blog I adore and who I am very fond of???
Before I could email her she posted on her blog. It was her - she had my precious piece!! To top it off what she wrote about my work had me weeping. I was so deeply touched by what she said. THANK YOU hon!!

As an artist when you put your work out there you hope that it touches people in some way. What Tabitha wrote was so much more than that. I am over the moon that she has this piece and that the universe worked in such an amazing way!! This is why I draw! May I also say - what kind of amazing guy surprises his girl like that!! You go boy!!! So at the risk of sounding braggy if ya wanna read her amazing,(has made me reapply my mascara several times) post & visit her wonderful on her name above. Thanks for stopping by & sharing in my joy today! Namaste, Sarah

That is so totally awesome! You can tell she appreciated it and felt that it was drawn just for her. So who says there are coincidences? Not me...divine intervention for sure!

That is awesome Sarah! Good for you. Your work is amazing.. and I love your blog.

Renee said...

Dear Sarah you deserve that and so much more.

I tried making a comment on someone else's blog? don't remember who but they had your picture of the cat and talking about your giveaway. I tried writing about how much I love you and it would not take my comment. So you are out there babe.

Have faith, others have it in you.

Glad the kids had fun opening the little pack.

Love Renee xoxo
