princess and a prayer

I was so delighted to illustrate this to raise money for a charity for a womens and childrens shelter. This gal (and devoted reader) came to me with this request to create something with the quote, "When you pray, believe."
Little girls were included in on the fun and invited to wear princess party attire. They made these little signs which included prints of my artwork.
Just look at what fun these girls are having, dancing, crafting and learning to share and more importantly - to believe.
Tiaras are wonderful accessories for every girl.
Shelter and a tiara, what more can a girl want?
What a fun and clever way to involve girls in a worthwhile project.

Congratulations to Emily upon raising quite a nice amount to donate to the shelter and for contacting me to contribute the artwork. Emily is a Mom full of grace and a devoted reader.
Thank-you for reading and believing in me and my artwork.

Emily began her very own blog. Please welcome Emily to the blog community by leaving her a comment here.

Your illustration is adorable. I bit your beautiful princess gave a lot of girls big and small hope sweet dreams. A wonderful way to reach out and help our friends in need.

Many thanks to Emily for giving her time and passion to a great organization. Her example shows if we take a little time to roll up our sleeves and lend a hand we can make a difference.

As I write this I'm trying (again) to remember how I found your blog, but I count my blessings I did!! You share with us so much through your kindness and connect us with one big golden thread. xo

I love that illustration! But, since I am a fan of your work that is no big surprize. Would you consider doing some note cards with that beautiful sentiment? And how about some artwork for the Etsy shop? I will place the first order... XOXO
