from Amy H of Swapmamas, who had me make a custom doll "Leah" to resemble her son, Henry 2014

"Beautiful work! A piece of art you can hold! This mama painted a doll to match the coloring/markings of my child as a newborn. Very well done :) Thanks mama!"

from Melody from swapmamas, swapped for my custom painting:

Mandi- I just saw your email and I am in tears. You are incredibly talented and have captured my heart in this piece. So many times have I dreamed of holding my little boy and wanted to kiss his little head. It gives me great joy and hope to think of reuniting with him someday and knowing that he is in safe and loving arms. You must be very pleased with this painting... it is beautiful. I can't wait for the rest of the family to see it. :)

I would very much like to feature this work on a post on my blog in the near future. It is a personal blog... most of my readers are moms with children. Many have lost little ones. Would you mind if I posted a photo and link?

2nd email: 

"Hey Mandi-Just wanted to share the blog post that I did featuring your work. I've received a ton of positive feedback... you can see some of it in the public comments. I also put the photo you took in my swapmamas photos and lots of mamas commented there. I hope you get some business from this! Your work sells itself... it just needs to be displayed! Thanks again.


also from Melody:

This has got to be the most special swap I've experienced. I could not have planned it or imagined it... and yet here I am holding this incredible painting. The work of one mama's hands to the heart of another. Thank you for the beautiful likeness of my little Matthew. I was so moved when I saw what you had done. Even the kids were touched as they looked on and thought about the little brother they have not yet met. Thank you for this opportunity. I can't wait to share your work with others. :)
