About the Sunny Sense Creations
Created by Artist Kelli Swan,
Sunny Sense designs
were inspired by “Sunny,” a delighfully happy
Red Doberman Pinscher.
Little Sunny-girl came to me as an adoption from North Coast Doberman Rescue in 2007. Just about the happiest dog I’ve ever seen, her sunshiny personality never failed to bring a smile to my face. One day, while contemplating how much joy pets bring to our lives, the thought came to me that Sunny might shine to others like the little star she was.
That’s when the thought “Sunny Sense” came to mind. Somehow love connects us to our true essense, and Sunny was like the ultimate wireless connection to that energy source!
As stylized images of Sunny appeared in my head, I began to think of some of my father’s favorite sayings. A philospher at heart, he always had the perfect phrase in mind to fit any given moment. Some of his favorites were the Irish Blessing and quotes from Shakespeare. Then it HIT me! Why not combine these beautiful images flowing into my brain with little gems of fun or inspirational messages?! Thus, the Sunny Sense collection was born.
I might also mention that Sunny is yet more proof in my life of The Power of Intention. The day before finding her picture online, I was thinking about how nice it would be to have a red female doberman again, but this time a smallish one, with a very docile temperament. Even as one who practices mindful thought, I was stunned at how perfectly Sunny fit my vision, and the speed at which she manifested in my life!
