Introducing Let's Make Art Matter

 
Hello friends,
 
I want to start off by saying I think you are amazing, brave, wonderful people who are still chasing down their creativity and willing to try something new. And I love you for that.
 
I have learned through this last year that life is hard. And I don’t necessarily mean mine, I mean everybody’s. I knew this one particular family that had a very rough year—from cancer to suicide to miscarriages to divorce. And every time something horrible happened I wanted to say something, anything, that could comfort them, but who even knows what to say in those situations? So instead of saying, I painted. Just so they knew that I was thinking about them, just so they knew they were loved. It was through these experiences that I realized that art can be so much more than fun illustrations that I can sell on etsy. Art can help bring people together, spread love, and sometimes heal. I want everybody to know that.
 
So every month in our subscription box I am including a little postcard. A postcard for someone who needs a little extra love or thought. But I need your help. While I would love to send these postcards to people I personally know, I want this to reach beyond my grasp, and that is where you come in. As you go about your day, think of someone who might need this. It can be anybody, a sweet neighbor that you appreciate, someone who is lonely, or down, or sad. Send me their information and we can see if we can brighten their day, even just for a little bit. Because we are all in this together.

Amazing idea. While I was going through some pretty terrifying medical issues this month, I opened my box! I was quickly reminded that I am so blessed and that I’m not alone on this journey of fear. There are people battling MUCH more than I am. I prayed so hard over my message as I wrote it. Keep up the great outreach!

We’ve had a rough year. My husband was sick 8 years but this final was the worst with him being hospitalized 17 times in a year, a coma, all the in home care. Last Christmas we were showered with cards. I would run out to the mailbox and sit in the car and cry over them. It was amazing .
So I couldn’t help posting how I love the idea of your postcards. Have you choosing someone different each month ? I sure hope so.

When you meet her, Linden seems like a typical 7 year-old girl. She's cheerful, polite, and a bit silly. She also struggles with sensory processing disorder, which means information she receives through her senses (sight, sound, touch, taste, etc.) is not processed in a "typical" way. Let's show Linden how much she is loved and valued.
