I am humbled...

I humbled by the abundance of love and support that just keeps pouring in. First, I am sending out a special thank you to Chynadoll Creations for her GENEROUS donation to the kids this year!

Yesterday afternoon, I was greeted by the large box below....

And I cannot thank her enough for the little cutie she included for my very own collection!

I am the proud owner of a Chynadoll Creation! She is absolutely precious.
You keep inspiring me to be brave and paint.
Thank you for all that you do in the doll community.
I love your work, and I know I'm not the only one! ;)

Next, Tokidoki sold today. Yes, she sold once before. But without getting into it too much I will summarize why she had to be re-listed. The first buyer was irresponsible, and that is all I will say on the matter. Because God works in mysterious ways, and though I was heart broken on Thanksgiving day when I got the bad news of the first sale gone wrong, I pressed on. 
I knew that the right person would come along when the time was right and love this doll I put so much of myself into. Today, she sold, and is already shipping to her new home.
And in case I doubted the purposeful way all of this played out, I soon received the following message from a fellow artist after the sale was finalized: 

"Hi! I wanted your doll so badly, but have no moolah for extras right now. Just wanted to let you know I'm a fan of your work--I shared her on Facebook and my friends and I all drooled over her, and as a fellow artist I'm happy that she sold for you!

Just a little something to let you know that total strangers think you're cool."

If she reads this I hope she doesn't mind I included her thoughtful, and much appreciated message here. And I want to thank her again for her kind words and encouragement. That one message will keep me smiling all day. :)

Thank you for all who keep helping me to perservere and persist on this journey I'm on.
May you also be blessed on your journeys !
