So this is the start of my birthday week…I don’t celebrate my birthday for just one day, but usually for one week, and I’ve even been known to leave claim to the entire month of June as my own. I think it’s important to celebrate your birth and your life, that’s one thing I’ve learned over my ‘almost’ 4o years.
Another thing I’ve learned is that the best things in life (and even on birthdays) are free…a sentiment also enjoyed by artist Lisa Solomon. Lisa created a textual embroidery piece with just this very sentiment on it. She then scanned it in to share with you fine folks for the Feed Your Soul: the free art project and I’m sharing it with you today.
I know it’s been quite a long while since I’ve shared a Feed Your Soul free download with you (since March), but I am trying to revive the project. If you are an artist and would like to contribute to the project, send me and email and I will take a look at your work. Also, please feel free to suggest some artists that you would like me to invite to contribute to the project.
See Lisa’s contribution below and enjoy!
