How it went

Posted Aug 2014

I can't believe that I had described my picture as dreamy. (See my post from a few days ago.) Because it then turned out Just the way the lady responded. She kept repeating "Is this really happening?" And "It feels like a dream." And "Am I dreaming?" She was so excited. I felt their Joy. The Marriage Proposal was Wow.

Here's what happened:

The woman seemed to have a mind of her own. She didn't want to go where we had arranged, and she started making herself comfortable elsewhere in the Park. Lol ~ Client texted me. So the scene was just moved. We brought the experience to her. She responded. Wow ~ Such Joy! What a good place to be. What a good experience:

I wish I had the time to photograph her very first reaction, but I was busy as the Artist. I was making the experience happen.

When I was 'out of the scene', I did manage to get these photos. Not a professional Photographer, so it's not my photography that makes these photos so fantastic ~ It's just Them. My clients. So much care and love and togetherness and happiness. Ahhh ~ Romance. It's such a blessing that I can enable this sort of event:

And because she kept saying that she was dreaming, I played around with the next photo for them:

Did remember to get her writing on the picture this time. She was so cute. Needed help:

When I'm involved with my clients like this, I really feel Love for them. So I felt inspired to make them a gift while they went off for their picnic. I tried to see the Park scene beautifully for them and I created a little picture of the area. Of course, I blocked out their names before I posted it here:

And a few days after the event, still flying from it, I felt so happy to receive the following email from my client:

Alison, I cannot begin to thank you enough for making our engagement so memorable. Your willingness to please, artistic talents, and superb service far exceed expectations. Thank You again and (name) still is in shock :) Go you! Thank You again, -(Name)

Being part of the good things in life. Making them happen for us. So much more fun than getting bogged down with the problems.

As my own husband says, "If we were down to our last few dollars, I'd buy you flowers with them." (Yes, he's also bought me flowers while we've been earning our living)

Reactions are Reviews

Posted Jun 2014

I just realized that I could have been posting the pictures of the people actually responding to my Caricatures as Client Reviews. Isn't that the best type of Review? One that shows what actually happens in the moment? One that shows how very much fun we have at the Parties/Events where I draw?

You can see lots of these Reactions all over this blog. Here I'll pull out just a few of them ~ a few in which the guests were quite animated. Photos that were quickly snapped as soon as they saw their completed Caricatures.

Bringing Out the Joy that People have inside them. I feel so happy to give them opportunity to tap into their Joy

On this Rainy Day, I'm Feeling the Sunshine

Posted May 2014

I received a letter from the Post Office today. Can you just imagine how Happy Happy Happy I felt when I opened it and found this Bright POP-UP flower with a note from one of my favorite repeat-clients ~

I recently felt plenty appreciated when I drew at her daughter's Communion Party, then I went on to my other events, figuring that that one was done. But still today ~ I received this card and felt like the good experience lasted. Some people just have such a good way about them. I feel so fortunate that my work brings me in contact with them.

Proper Behavior

Posted May 2014

I'm really looking forward to going to today's Party. I drew at this little girl's Parties several times, and now it's time for her Communion. Such a lovely young lady ~ I remember her as always having been absolutely Classic.

Reference my post of April 16, 2012 ~ This girl's Mother had sent me a fun Norman Rockwell card after one of her previous Parties. I feel so good about repeat-clients. I feel so good to see them again.
