The Fairy in my siggy is one that I had shared with all of you in early December and had asked that y’all cheer her on when she was on eBay. Well, the bad news is that I listed her twice and she did not sell either time. The good news is the artist who sculpted her, Shawna Clymer, commented on my first listing (I included it on the listing hoping that it would help)… She said -
WOW!! She is sooo amazing! I LOVE what you’ve done with your Serenity Fairy…she’s beautiful and her outfit (my 2 fav colors) is GORGEOUS!! I hope she does very well for you:heart: I would love her for my own!~ HUGS!! Shawna
Well… within an hour of the end of the second listing, she wrote to me again. This time, she said -
She is SO sweet…she looks like a true fairy! LUV her hair, pretty blue eyes to match, her outfit, those wings & the colors,! I cannot believe there hasn’t been a war over her! I want her for myself to be honest, she’s truly precious! Wonderful wonderful job…I hope her mommy snags her up quick!HUGS!Shawna
So… when she did not sell, I told her that it was clear that she liked my fairy and suggested that she make me an offer! Well, we emailed back and forth a couple of times and Serenity got packed up and sent on her way to her new Mommy! She arrived yesterday and Shawna sent me this photo of her with all of her new fairy friends.
It was a bit sad packing her up and getting her ready to ship - she was my first to leave the nest. I have a really hard time letting go of my babies but with this baby, I felt a little like a foster Mom sending a baby back to her original Mom – kind of exciting, actually!
Can you believe it? It’s hard to believe that I could not win a Baby Of The Month contest or a Fairy class contest with her but her original creator was so in love with her that she had to have her! I was so excited that I could hardly stand it. I wanted to shout it from the roof tops but at the same time, I did not want to invade Shawna’s privacy so I had to contain myself… but it was so hard! I emailed her and asked her permission to share my news and she told me that I could - yippee!
Isn’t this exciting?!?!
