Persistence is what makes the impossible possible,
The possible likely,
And the likely definite. (Unknown)
This is Persistence the flying pig fairy. Which does not mean that she's only a fairy to flying pigs but to all who are looking for a little magic to make the impossible possible, for you know that,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
A pig that has wings
Does impossible things!
Over clouds it can fly
In the wink of an eye!
She may tickle you pink
But she wants you to think
Of her message to each
"Nothing's out of your reach!"
|Created with colored pencil, Micron marker, Koi water colors, and gel pens.|
See some of her magic. She can make herself small.
She can make herself tall.
And just look at the sparkle that she gives off.
Ha! Okay, so I have a thing for flying pigs. If you search my blog for "flying pig" you'll see that I celebrate Flying Pig Day every March 1st and I have for just about 10 years now. I celebrated this year also, just a little quieter than usual.
Over the course of these last 10 years I've collected not only quite a few "flying pigs" in many shapes and forms, but I've also maintained a collection of what I call my "pig ladies" - those that I send pig greetings to to remind them to believe in the impossible.
I received a little package recently from one of those friends.......all the way from New Zealand! It never ceases to amaze me how far we can reach with a blog. Ten years ago I would not have imagined that I would have a friend in New Zealand, or Ireland, or California, Colorado, or really anywhere outside the state of New Jersey. Friends that I have never (except for one) met face-to-face, but with whom I share common interests.
So inside the package was this cute little matchbox.
Hiding inside was a little pig key chain.
Look - even the inside was decorated.
And the pig had a sweet little flower on the other side.
And with it came this beautiful card from my friend Sunshine who also believes in flying pigs like I do.
Thank you Sunshine for my little piggy and for the beautiful card. And thank you for believing!
Oh, and please do check out the Scribble Picnic fairies from this week. I'm headed over there now.
