It was made from a photo sent in by and created for Gale for a birthday gift for Haley.
I received one of the best letter's from someone that I created a portrait for...
I thought I would share it....

Dear Sharie,
This past Monday, I recieved my own portrait from your shop, ordered by Gale M.
I have a history of unlucky and horrible birthdays, and I have done my best to forget/ignore them for the past ten years. I could go into great detail about what has happened to make me feel this way, but I won't bore you. Suffice to say that I just detest the day, the days surrounding it, and everything that goes with it. I would prefer if it just didn't exist.

Well, I'm also an avid fan of Regretsy and April Winchell, and had absolutely adored the work you had done with her portrait. Apparently, Gale somehow found out about my birthday and decided to surprise me with one of your portraits for my birthday. She had intimated that I had a present coming, but I did not expect more than a card and a knitted scarf or hat, since Gale is amazing and can do wonders with a set of knitting needles. That would have been much more than enough, and would have thrilled me beyond words. I was in no way prepared for what I encountered when I opened the box that arrived at my door on Monday.

First, it was quite heavy. She included a note saying that she hoped I would take what she had gotten me in the spirit of love she had had it created, and that for my birthday I deserved the same treatment April had gotten. That left me more confused than the heavy box. I dug through to the bottom, pleased as punch with the gifts I encountered (that, as amazing as they were by their own right, paled by comparison.) I got to the very heavy box at the bottom and started tearing into it, and in a single moment, it hit me what was inside. I started to cry and laugh with joy, all in the same moment.

I opened the box, pulled back the bubble wrap and tissue paper, and there it was. The most beautiful thing I have ever seen, aside from my children. My husband does not follow Regretsy, so he was slightly mystified. Even he smiled and admired the craftsmanship.

Every single square inch of this portrait is perfect. I love it so much, I am trying to find a place to hang it in my home that does it the honor it deserves. April has posted these clay portraits several times, and each time I pored over them, thinking about how lovely they were and how much I'd like to have one. But the photos simply do not do them justice. You took particular care to lay out each individual hair and curl, and even to make my jewelry by hand, and then to make it solid and immoble, glossing it. I am in awe.

I know that this may sound like I am trying to suck up, but I'm honestly not. I had prepared myself for an appointment that I was dreading, and then to ignore the rest of the day. This gift, this one gift, made the whole day wonderful and worth celebrating. I cannot thank you enough.

My camera, unfortunately, is in the shop, but as soon as I am able to take a photo of myself with it, I will get a photo of myself with this portrait and another of it hanging in its place of honor and send it to you as a customer appreciation photo. I wish that I, too, could give you positive feedback for your profile, but since I can't, this is the best I can do. I will be sending anyone and everyone I can to your shop. This was the best gift I have gotten in many, many years, and I am genuinely misting up with happy tears (again) as I sign off this letter. It made my birthday special, and I can't thank you enough.

Sincerely and with great joy,
Haley G.
p.s. I am sorry for being so incredibly wordy, but I'm truly that excited.
