My friend from a Farr

About 2 weeks ago I was invited to participate in an Tag Art Event where you send a piece of your art to a person on the top of the list and add your name to the bottom, etc. You're supposed to receive little bits of magic in the mail. I joyfully did my part and sent off my art to the top name on the list, Diana Frey, a wonderful artist and jewelry designer, come see... ...and promptly forgot about it after she had notified me she had received my gift of tag art. By the way, I'm excited to say that Diana will be teaching at Inspirational Retreat in May with Riki Schumacher, and by herself in July.

Okay, so after returning home from a double shift at the gallery yesterday, I was anxious to get into my studio to continue my calligraphy work. I totally ignored the mail until my curiosity got the better of me after dinner when I realized that there were no bills haunting me to be paid. So off to the mailbox I went and low and behold..."what is this and who is sending me something addressed in gorgeous lettering?" I turned it over and to my surprise, a bell went off in my head to let me know that I was receiving my first bit of Tag Art. And, to make things even better, it was from someone I admire and who's blog I've been following forever it seems.

Jane Farr, calligrapher extraordinaire, my Indiana online friend, was tagged to send to me. Oh, the joy...did you see that envelope?

What was inside the envelope thrilled me to laughter as I explained to Jon what had made me so happy and the tag art. Look at all the goodies Jane sent. This is my drug of choice.

I'm off to play in my journal with all my goodies. Thank you Jane for making my day. Sending hugs and kisses.

Awww. Thank you Renee! After a few years of thinking about blogging, I'm so glad I finally took the leap. I've met many caring, encouraging and talented artists such as yourself. I hope you enjoy using the remnants in your journal - I'd love to see what you create....big hugs!
