I am very happy that my Laughing Buddha is liked. It is easy to go though this life angry, resentful, jealous and to be mean and nasty. Some people are so resentful and hang on to things that have happened to them in the past. I know a few and quite frankly at this point in my life with what we have going on - I no longer have the energy for it. I chose to remove such negative people from my life. There are days when I have to force myself to be positive. I get angry, hurt and tired. Tired of trying to make sense of it all. Tired of trying to understand why life seems so unfair. If someone is speaking bad about someone else.. look where it is coming from, sadly most of the time is stems from jealousy. I have decided that when someone talks poorly about someone else I'm going to simply walk away. I want to come to my own conclusions about people. I do NOT want to be apart of anyones gossip.
If only we all did this. Formed our own educated opinions - about everything.
Laughing Buddha is for my own sanity, I read, get inspire and then draw. Buddha sayings are so simple, all about being good. Look within. It is about Patience, Love and Kindness.
So when I post a cartoons and see that others share. I feel HOPE. Hope that I might be making a difference.
Hope that I have lightened someone's load. If only for a second. Brightened their day if only for a few moments. I have decided to come up with my Laughing Buddha cards.
My strips have done very well and I have sold a few Laughing Buddha originals. I know everyone can't afford an original but I hope they might afford my cards. Share the good vibes, positive words and help cheer up someone else with a little Laughing Buddha Wisdom.
The best thing about these cards - I have them to mail out! ;-) Who needs Hallmark-
I am my own Hallmark ;-) Back to drawing.
Halloween finally put away.. a few trinkets remain, fish are out of the pond and in the house for the winter. Todays been a day for chatting with my guys, reading, lazing on the sofa - sunshine window, jotting down some toon ideas. I love Sunday's. I have been working on my first set of cards! They look (if I do say so myself) very cool! I will NOT post them. I want who ever gets a card to not have already seen it a few times on FB. I've had fun thinking of one for every month occasion! Some turned out so good I will make them into strips...
A couple serious but most for fun, I hope to give giggles. Anyhow I am selling them in groups instead of one at a time or else I'd have to charge more money for shipping. Plus I don't know about you BUT I LOVE snail mail, who needs an excuse to send one some happy wishes? You can order my cards on my stuff for sale page.
Or maybe someone will send you one! Hee hee hee - I already have a few to mail out!!
I've also added some new art for sale. Seeing as this is my only income I guess I have to part with a few sooner or later ;-) Back to the sunshine... Have a fantastic weekend!
Seak peek of one of the birthday cards.. I wonder if Hallmark will pick them up ? ;-)
