This week has not been the best week for drawing, inking or for sketching creativity so I thought I would try writing today for a change. Since I started Michelle Perkett Studio in 2004 I have recieved so many wonderful comments about my work and I have been grateful for all of them, whether they were from someone at an art faire, commenting on my blogs, or on one of my online groups. They are the reason why I have kept creating even through the many highs and lows of being an artist.

The other day I recieved a letter from a wonderful new Etsy customer that I just had to share with all of you, it has touched me as an artist so much, I hope it touches you as well:

"Michelle, I just wanted to share something with you. Yesterday was a stressful day, to say the least.I decided to color some of your beautiful ladies (digital stamp images). Even with having to deal with all the nonsense, I realized that I was smiling to myself. Then I realized that my hands stopped shaking.The wonderful energy that you put in each of your blessed creations, poured thru, and made me feel better. Then I realized that even my pain level had lessened a bit.I really can't thank you enough. Michelle, finding you is a blessing.Thank you & may you receive the joy & love that you have given to others."

This is one of the nicest letters I have ever recieved as an artist and to know that my art helped to make someone feel better and to brighten someone's day is such a gift. As she wrote in her letter, "finding you is a blessing" - to me, she is MY blessing and I am so grateful for her words. Thank you so much for your beautiful letter!

It's so nice when something you've created has made a difference to someone in some way. You sometimes meet that kind individual that is grateful for anything

Here was my post where I gave my friend a painting for him.

Beautiful Michelle! Thank you for sharing!

Pauline said...

What a fabulous letter to receive! And I can second that emotion! Ever since I discovered your art Michelle, and created my collection, and enjoyed the thrill of being part of your design team, I know that every time I coloured an image, I was smiling too!
You have a wonderful gift, and it keeps on giving, because you share it with the world!
And we love your for that!

I'm sure that if you ever put your pencil down for good, that will be the day the sun stops shining in California...
hugs and blessings,
