I am stronger today than I was yesterday and that's a good thing. I always get such wonderful emails from people about how much joy my work gives them - it started to sink back in to my head today and I am thankful. I hope that they don't mind me sharing their thoughts with all of you and paraphrasing a bit:
If you'll all allow me one more great email:
"Kristin, he's even more amazing in person and your dad did an awesome job on the plaque! I discovered the package in my mailbox and was giggly and giddy as a kid on Christmas morning!! My boy loves pandas and I know he'll just adore Pandasm!
You make so many people smile with your work, I only hope that our words of admiration and appreciation can help you gain back your smile in return. -- Joy"
Once again, thank you. All I can do is keep painting :) And I am...I am...What I love about Pandasm is that I didn't have it named when I sent it out for approval, I just named the file 'pandasm' meaning panda small. The return email was a resounding, 'Pandasm!' I didn't get that I had named it and thanked Joy for coming up with such a great title. Don't do drugs kids. They screw with your brain ;-)
