Spontaneous Delight

“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit." e.e. cummings

Thank you to Sharon of Funky Fairy Frolics my buddy in the recent Mermaid Swap for this fabulous creation and collection of mermaid goodies.

I'm really glad that you like the mermaid doll - she was fun to make and decorate.


P.S. The link to my blog doesn't work

Ooo pretty pretties!! I love the quote you chose for this post because it seems to be the truth about me. Thank you for being one of the people who believe in me and give me encouragement with your comments.

Hi there Mandy,

You will find pictures of your mermaid artwork, and mine, on Flickr at
I seem to remember that you had problems joining the Flickr group? so I've done it and now the rest of the swap girls can check out our creations.

Sharon :-)

Thank you for your spontaneous delight when you stopped by to make a kind comment! I enjoyed your unique blog style of thoughtful quotes starting each post. And your artwork is lovely! I hope you join one of our challenges one day, we'd love to be inspired by your talent.
Creatively Yours, Laura

Wow, great mermaid from Sharon! She's really pretty! I bet Sharon really loves the canvas you made for her, too--I know I did! Wasn't this a fun swap? :-)
