One of my most popular wool portraits is the one of my winter donkey, affectionately called "Sammy," who looks like he's grinning and loving life. It makes me smile every time I look at it, and many, many others have written to tell me they feel the same--and that makes my heart sing!

So I decided to adopt him as my mail mascot, and you'll see his adorable face on every package I mail out. It's my way of sharing a smile, which, like Buddy the Elf, is one of my favorite things! long as they last, every order will find a sticker of Sammy tucked inside the package, as a personal thank you for supporting my work, my art, and my smiles!
