First off, thank you all to everyone that helped me with the commission sale. Whether you shared my journal or bought a commission yourself, you helped me out immensely and I can't thank you guys enough! I was overwhelmed with the amount of responses I got, some people even wanted some full price commissions to help me out further and just thinking about it makes me all teary still. ;-; I'll be heading home next week!
And now the bad. My grandmother passed away last Wednesday evening. I lived on the other side of the country and only saw her every 5 years. But she was seriously the most loving person I knew, there wasn't a single person that met her that didn't love her. I was amazed by the amount of visitors she had every day. And even more taken aback at how everyone that visited knew who I was right away, because she bragged about me and my art every chance she got. I rarely spoke to my grandmother in the last 10 years, and I truly regret it because I;d just found out she couldn't stop talking about me,
It was hard to care for her in her final weeks, but I'm so glad I was there for her. I got to be closer to the only grandmother I ever had, and she truly loved me and believed in my art. So I'll really try to honor her as much as I can by being a successful artist.
