Birdies, Mermaid Merchandise and Giving Thanks...

 

 

Birdies!

These happy little tweeters have been floating around my mind this week. My cute designs will be listed on my online stores in the coming days, so that they’ll be able to float all over the globe!
I love these little birdies so much~ thinking up their (sometimes mischievous) personalities is a joy, and makes the art process so very enjoyable.

 

Speaking of my online stores,

 

Mermaid Merchandise!

These beauties can all be found and bought here at my society6 page

Society 6 is a fantastic website with great quality merchandise, so if you like my designs, please consider doing any online shopping here! There are promotions all of the time for discounts and/or free shipping! I am especially a fan of the clock and the Duvet cover. I get a small portion of each sale, so please shop away!

Mermaid Duvet Queen Size Cover $99

!!! It's like a dream to see my works on merchandise! It'll be a dream come true to see my merchandise in use. :) I'm designing more art  specifically for certain things, so soon I'll have a whole interior line ready ^_^ yay!!!

 

Lastly, some important closing thoughts...

 


Giving Thanks for Thanksgiving

 

Gobble Gobble Gobble Giving Thanks at Thanks giving

I want to send a warm thanks to all of my family and friends this holiday season. 2014 has been the hardest year of my life, and without the love and support from all of the amazing people near and dear to me, I wouldn’t have been able to pick up the pieces and keep going.

The other day, I listened to the Eurythmics song “I’ve Got a Life” and I started to tear up. I know, crazy selection because it’s a dance song… but, when Annie starts singing “Strong now babe, gonna be strong now babe…” It really touched something deep inside of me.

All year long I was commended on my strength, “Winnie, you’re such a strong person”, “Winnie, we’re so proud of how strong you’ve been…” “You’re a strong mama….”
but, the truth of the matter is, I had no other choice but to be. I’m sure everyone knew, but never witnessed how many hours I spent in my car crying, and many sleepless nights feeling extremely weak. If you could have seen inside my chest, you would have seen a scared child covering her face, verses a tearless fighter who hurdled through doctor appointment after doctor appointment.

But, the strangest thing is realizing that all of those events are considered “the past.”  Maybe it’s because I’m just feeling the full effects of everything now, or maybe it’s because I finally have time to sort through every event and process it all….
But, I can’t explain it…It’s like the speed of sound which trails behind the blinding light of reality, the feelings come later...

And so, with that… to everyone who walked through this major life event with me,  I’m sorry I couldn’t thank you sooner… but, thank you so much for being there with me and for me. I rarely ever reach out, and I always take on many things without crying out for help…but, for everyone who knows me well enough to take a distance but still leave your hand available for me to grab whenever I needed something to grab on to… Thank you so much. Love is too small of a word for what I feel for you…

To end on a lighter note...

One personality trait will repeat itself through every avenue of a person. So, if someone is cheap with money, then chances are they’ll be cheap with their love, and cheap in their thoughts and actions...so moral of the story, don’t be cheap.”
— Winnie's words of Wisdom
