>I’ve got magic BONing fingers!

12 Jan


 Little did y’all know but Magic Gumbo really is magic!  Two of my latest designs, within days of putting on their new suits, both got the much coveted Blog of Note.  I kid. I kid.  Simple Dude and The Barreness both got it because they damn well deserve it – so stop by and definitely check them out.
I am super blessed lately though.  One of my dearest friends from the North did a fan-freakin-tastic painting with a little nod to a certain rabbit.

You’ll recognize it from my latest profile pic.  I just love it to bits.

I also got an unexpected email today that knocked me right the fart out of my chair.

A gift card.  To Blicks.  A rather hefty one.  I literally was struck quiet.  I don’t know who did it.  Who it’s from.  But whoever you are, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I have a really hard time shopping for myself.  Especially with art stuff.  I can always finagle some excuse NOT to get something, or find someone else who needs it more. To have something that is just for me dedicated to something I love means more to me than you can ever know.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  And if you’ll let me know who you are, I would love to create something for you with my purchases.  If not, thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.  I feel undeserving and humbled.  And I couldn’t be more grateful.
See…  I get fed up with all the ugly in the world – and then people like Savannah and whoever my beneficiary might be come along and show me that people really ARE as good as I want them to be – as I believe they are.  
And all the ugly is just accidents.
Thank you again.  Both of you.

[Update:  I now know who it was. Thank you. Your art alone is so inspiring to begin with, to allow me this to be able to create is even more of a blessing.  Thank you.]

    >That is really great, hopefully you share the art you create (inspired by this generous person) with all of us – even if the individual remains anonymous. It's great the Barreness got BON'd – she deserved it big time. And you're right, I got the BON less than 72 hours after putting your design up! SD

    >doesn't surprise me one bit that people want to spread love, creativity, and generosity your way, as you seem to give those things all the time, and you're good at picking friends. ^_^
