'Let Me Hold Your Heavy Heart With Gentle Hands As Your Mind Replays What The Heart Can't Forget'.edit.
Let me tell you a little about this design. This is a long one so you might want to grab a cuppa.
I had this idea building inside me for a very long time. It started not long after I launched the prints of my pebble art. Thousands of people got a free piece of my art and 99.9999% of people adored and appreciated the effort that went in to creating such a valuable offer to make getting a piece of my art more affordable for everyone. And it filled my heart with so much joy.
There were a couple of people who wanted to skin me alive and abuse me over the online space.
For the sake of this email lets just call them Prick One and Prick Two.
Prick One - Called me all the names of the day and how much of a scammer I was because I sent a print with no pebbles on it. Even though it says 'print' on my offer page over 10 times, includes the type of ink I used in each print description and in the FAQs states that its not actual pebbles its a PRINT! But because they didn't read it properly it was my fault. I'm just glad prints are prints cos I just bought a lion print off a fellow artist... maybe I should ask where my real lion is! lol
Prick Two - Felt it was ok to bully me online because they were an artist too and by giving away my prints for free was cheapening every other artists work. Ugh. If they had approached me differently I may have taken the time to explain that by giving away some of my art it was my hope that it created a relationship with people who already enjoyed my work so that when they had a gift to buy or they were in a better position to purchase some art from me that they would support me down the line.
I remember crying to Mr AMor numerous times as my mind kept replaying what these two pricks thought it was ok to say to me even though there were 1000s of happy customers I couldn't let these peoples words go. I doubted myself and I thought I had failed and let people down. This was probably the hardest time I've had to go through in my biz.
I stopped working, I stopped creating and I stopped putting my work out for the longest time as I was so scared. Mr AMor encouraged me daily that their words were just a reflection of their own inadequacies but it took so long for me to start believing it.
I loved making my pebble art and seeing the joy it brings to people so one day I picked up my pebbles and let the flood gates open. I literally cried my way through making this entire picture and it was one of the most healing things that I have ever experienced. It was like a transition of all the hurt I was holding internally onto the pebbles in front of me. I released the hurt in my heart and my mind quietened of the mind monkey chatter that was on repeat. It has been a trying time to get going again but I have never forgot the gentle hands that held and helped me through it.
When people get this print I always get feedback of what an emotional powerful piece this is when they get it in their hands. They burst into healing tears remembering a loved one that has passed, a miscarriage, an estranged family member, an illness or mental burden that they just cant stop replaying in their head and as soon as they see it there is an instant release.
I encourage you to get your hands on this piece and layer your tears on it to heal whatever you are going through right now. It's time to stop that repeating chatter that you could have done better, should have done ...etc let your heart let go of the pain you're holding and remember the loved ones and support you have to hold you with gentle hands to help you through it.
I SEE YOU.
You will get through this trying time too, every storm eventually runs out of rain as Pastor Furnick says.
If you would like to experience the I SEE YOU print you can get one below or if you know someone who needs this buy one for them too!
I would love to hear your experience too, even if it's a pic of your tears on this print you can comment below or send me an email email@example.com and I will get right back to you.
Take care of yourself,
PS. If you would like to show me some love and encouragement I would be so grateful for you to leave a review of my work here.
