I’ve had some people ask me how to order cards, art, necklaces, etc. All of these are available in my Etsy shop for purchase. You can order directly from there, or just let me know if there is something there you are interested in buying. You can always get to my Etsy Shop from the Take Heart Gallery page (if you click the blue link, you will go to my gallery page now). I will zero out shipping cost for local orders for friends/family, so please send me a message before you order on Etsy. It only takes a second for me to go in and remove the shipping cost. Then you can order directly through Etsy to pay with a credit card or via Paypal – without the shipping cost! I appreciate your business there. Orders and reviews help me gain visibility with other potential customers.
Today, I wanted to share something cool that happened last week. I took a new painting outside to photograph. I always do this because there is better lighting. The painting is a girl with some butterflies around her face. She says, “Made New”. As I was photographing, a lovely little moth came and landed on her, and I was able to get a few pictures! It was as if God sent the little creature to enhance the meaning of this one. Evidence that God provides!! I love the picture with the moth on top because its wings are fully extended, and you can see its beautiful shadow on the canvas. The moth even walked down into her hair and seemed to pose perfectly! What a blessing this was! Here are a couple pictures to share of the glorious moment:
And here is one more that I edited with photo effects to print. I have samples of this one on the way…can’t wait to see what she looks like in a print!!
I ordered materials to make 20 more necklaces!! I will be working on this in the next couple weeks, and will post pics when they’re ready. I am also in the final steps of publishing my book on Amazon – praying early July to officially click publish! Thank you to everyone who has been reading and reviewing it for me. Your comments and encouragement keep me going! Moving mountains together!
