Love you Jenny. Sending hugs ❤
Love the little message in there 🙂
This makes me happy. It’s my mood for today. Maybe the year.
Love this and love you, Jenny. Thank you.
I love it! Thank you! I’ve also been too weird to write…for a very long time now. Trying to figure out the magic thing to make it click back into place. Sending hugs!
Like a fan of rainbows … promising things will get better after the storm. Thank you.
Love it! Sooooo appropriate for NOW!
You are the most generous person ever! I love this.
This looks to me like many cookies in a box. Yum! Thanks for today’s sweet treat. And now I will make some tea to go with.
Love this, Jenny. xo
Thank you. I really really needed this today. A totally depressing and anxious day here for me. Your posts and books bring me comfort and make me happy. I feel bad when you are suffering. Thank you for bringing some joy to my life.
Ohhh I’m going to trace it on cloth and embroider it🧵.. thank you! I’ve been weirder than weird but I’m cutting myself some slack. Day drinking is allowed.
Thank you. I needed something.
Your posts make me happy
Thank you thank you! You always seem to know when I need a little something to get me through my day! Today is a day like that, and you made me something special. I love that about you! <3
Embiggen is my new favorite word.
Thank you for this. May life get less weird for all of us who need it. ❤
(I’m so sorry.)
(This is MY weirdness manifesting.)
(Sometimes I just can’t help myself.)
(I crack myself up.)
This is perfect! Thank you Jenny! 😘
I wish I had time to spend with pencils and shit. You’re awesome!
You obviously spend your time more wisely than I do. 🙂
This made me smile so much and chuckle. Thanks Jenny! This work of art needs to be on things…cotton t-shirts, hoodie sweatshirts.. love!
Thank you, Jenny. Stay weird. You’re good for the soul just as you are.
Love you so much, thanks 🙂
Yup, Fuck Everything
Oh my word this is beautiful. I kind of want to print it super large and make it wall art for a nursery for our baby on the way!! And then maybe cover the words in silver to represent a “silver lining.” 😍
Thank you, very timely message!
You definitely bring me happiness!
Perfect. Thank you!
You have brought me great happiness… No. wait… Ok go ahead… For a second there I thought I was confusing Happiness with Gass, but indeed it was happiness embiggened by your artistic endeavor…
❤️❤️❤️❤️! Thank you!
That’s the Marie Kondo motto, right? 😉 How I feel most days. https://possumscatsthingsgnawingatme.wordpress.com/2020/07/22/zoom-call-distraction/
You are so lovingly generous. It is beautiful.I needed a gift of kindness today. Thank you Jenny
Miss Jenny, I just want to let you know that I’m so glad you are here!
Life is strange and knowing you are understanding makes it easier to survive!
Have a blessed 🙏 peaceful night!
It’s my new mantra in my new mandala
Ahhhh, just what I needed. Thank you, Jenny!
Ahhhh, just what I needed today. Thank you, Jenny!
I would love this to be my background pic on FB 😍
I was just colouring in some pictures from your book earlier today!
Thank you! 💚💚💚
Thank you Jenny! I needed this today. It’s been a rough one.
Love the little big message not so hidden in there
This makes me feel like I’m very small and hiding under a mushroom patch where no one can find me. I love it!
I almot bought crayons when I was out having an obsession over colored hair wax that I cant find anywhere. Im going to get my colored markers, print this, and color it.
thank you ❤🌼
Sorry you’re feeling weird(er than usual). 1. You reached out during your weirdness, so victory over the weirdness. 2. With the pandemic, weird is the new normal.
Thank you for the positive you bring to us, even while feeling weird.
That’s absolutely gorgeous. Thank you. 😍
LOVE THIS! Off to get my colored pencils…..
Thank you! I love it. ❤
It’s okay to feel weird. We will all be weird together with you. Virtual hugs to all my fellow weirdos!
Wonderful, just like you! By the way, I bought a pretty, flowery, girly nightgown and thought of you….weird. Why? It has pockets!!!
I may just turn this into an embroidery project.
Thank you, for this.
Reason to freak out: THIS WILL NEVER END. Reasons to be a little happier and a little more hopeful: Your twisted, pitch-perfect wit, helping us laugh a little through the tears, and your titanically generous and open heart, helping who knows how many broken people feel someone is there who understands and can show us how to keep on going, even if we fall from time to time. Thank you, Jenny Lawson.
It’s awesome. Thank you!
Thanks, Jenny. Love it. Printed it. I am using the spaces to write down things that DO make me happy, because I think it will help to have them all in one tidy place. I feel like a snake that needs to get rid of some old skin (aka, the stuff that isn’t working). Your art is timely and I bow to you. 😉
Perfect! Thank you.
Your weirdness makes the world better in so many ways.
Just wondering though…I assume the tagline in your lovely drawing-gift was intended the “F-off” way, and not a suggestion to go out and mass-fornicate with annoying stuff?
Sorry. I read things and then I probably think of too many things about things.
Imma make a t- shirt.
Thank You Jenny girl!
Happiness or joy, but no inherent embiggening! 😀
I’ve had to keep my hands busy, too. I started cross stitching last year. You can see my latest on my instagram. Last year I did a portrait of David Bowie and, when I finished in March, I started one of Jimi Hendrix. I love the colors and find the repetition soothing.
So relevant for me right now. Thank you!
I plan of coloring this one over, and over! Thanks for sharing!
I love the bits of you that you include!
