《Life Lessons I Learned from my Cat》Jamie Shelman「做你自己，那個對的人會因此愛你」
“Be who you are and the right person will love you for it. ” Jamie Shelman
Margaret W. Lavigne: You can’t keep a stable permanent relationship if you fail to show your true feelings.
“Don’t be afraid to let someone know you like them.”Jamie Shelman
Margaret W. Lavigne: It’s a wonderful thing to express our affection to someone we are in love with. But if the affection you have for her/him is essentially a one-way street, mind the manners. It’s no way for a person to respond to everyone’s affections. As for me, confessing my love to a person does not mean that I have strong desire to date with him. It’s slightly different.
“I like you.”=To show that you are fond of their company or you are interested in building connection with him/her.
” I am in love with you.= To show that you harbor a unusual intense affection to him/her. You are tempted to get to know him/her more.
” “May I have the chance to be your BF/GF?” =You are asking a chance to be his/her significant partner.
“Anxiety is nothing to be ashamed of.”Jamie Shelman
Margaret W. Lavigne: Odds are, when we dread of losing something or someone, we might get anxious for it.
Graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she worked for an online art school hosted by illustration blog Pikaland for successive three years, helping design and teach art courses. She has been living in Martha’s Vineyard and New York for several years. She created the image of the dancing cat in her studio in Roland Park. Her inspiration flashed into her mind when she was listening to classical music in the vineyard.
Jamie Shelman established her studio in 2008, and her husband helped her open her own page on Etsy. Cat lovers are in love with various miscellaneous products designed by her. They offer customized services as well. All works are initially drawn by hand and then digitally colored. Because she believes that vitality and energy can only be captured by hand.
