I had someone question the "time & money making paintings and sending them" to people who do not appear to appreciate them. I was surprised that she would even give my cards any thought, the remark seemd a little nasty but she's 'not in a good place' - so I chose to let it slide. A bad break up has her in a hateful mood to all.
At first this remark caught me off guard, it was nasty & meant to be from someone who is hurting - I get it... but I thought - YES- I do spend time & a bit of money (not that is anyones business) making and mailing cards to people ( I also mail out paintings as some of you might be well aware ;) - she could not understand 'why?'
and went so far as to state it makes me appear 'desperate' .. wow.
Desperate.. well o.k. then.. If that is being "desperate"
I am desperate to make other humans smile occasionally I guess, yes.
WHO has the problem?
I make cards for people because I try to make them happy, lighten the load, make the day a little more enjoyable, give a smile, say hello, let people know they are thought about, cared about.. I love to paint & I know most people do not get HOMEmade cards. Little originals - yes, painted with TLC & THC. It makes me feel GOOD- so sure- it makes me SMILE to do this- yes, I am selfish.
Trust me, IF I even suspected someone would receive my cards with hate ? I would never send them in the first place. I don't put negative painting into anything for anyone. Painting is MY PLEASURE- MY PEACE.
I painted a IG friend' with a Dane a card - it took me minutes- i thought - he would like this! His dog was just very ill. I just sent it, I did not tell him- I already had his address from a postcard draw. He was thrilled and thanked me to the point I blushed. I don't know him - he has a lovely wife, dogs and little baby - I'm not going to have dinner with him, I'll never speak to this person- but hey - why not. I'm glad I did.
F*CK that... 'Desperate', I'll be.
If that is what 'makes me ' appear desperate' to someone - who has the problem?
Most people are caught off guard and enjoy my cards. I know pain makes people do & say things they don't necessarily mean to do, to those they do it to. I KNOW I've done it too.
So- critize me if it makes you feel better - for trying to spread some joy & love!?? LOL!!?
Go for it!! Doing something just to be nice.
Just because I can?
You can't understand?
Thank you, It inspired me to make a card and mail it out today!
Back at it! The first is a sweet little 'winter bird' to my friend - I can't tell...
it could be YOU reading this NOW.
I will contiue to share my talent & gift- cause - that is what we are to do.
When someone questions the 'good you do'-
They will mock you no matter what you do - do it anyway!
Show love and DO tell those who need to be told -
"F*ck off, I will be nice - regardless of what YOU think!!"
...or just remove them off the Christmas card list. Done.
Check out my SNOW MAN/woman CARD which made us giggle.
He's pretty simlple - make one for a bud!
Out of the goodness of your heart... even IF it makes you appear desperate.
New cannabis cartoon NEXT!!
I've be slightly distracted with drawing on the iPad - more on that soon.
