Look what I got in the mail yesterday! I feel so unbelievably blessed and fortunate to have won the drawing from Misty Mawn's first online class. Because of the holidays and me going on vacation, I just got it in now and boy was it worth the wait!!! I cannot describe the feeling of holding it and seeing her handwriting, anticipating what was inside and then to find it so carefully & tenderly wrapped up like a precious, beautiful gift.
My reaction was, in this order: screaming, crying...then sighing :>
And yes, that is TWO original pieces you see folks, along with some of her postcards...that sweet soul even tucked in a CD she made just for me (love it)
I am speechless... and in awe of her talent, soulful energy and generous spirit. I loved it all but I have to say the piece with the girl & bird really spoke to me. I've been feeling like that girl, holding onto a large bird (burden), flying with only one wing, however I've remained positive and optimistic because of the golden light (kind & caring support) all around me. Like her, I can hug and recognize the beauty of the "burd-en" knowing that it's brought me to a different, stronger and decisive place, one I wouldn't be at without it.
Misty, thank you from the bottom of my heart - mmwah!! xoxo
