Lovely Mail From Australia :):)

  I now you have heard me say this....but I will say it again.....I LOVE INSTAGRAM!!!!!!!! I have made the coolest friends there. From all over the world. Today I will talk about Jane...my lovely friend from down under:):) She has the cutest little people that she creates...LOVE them!! They never fail to make me smile when she shows one on IG. I ordered some of her work.....but, since then she and I have become great friends.....we chat all the time:):) Super sweet lady...I really like her a lot!!! Today I got her packages in the mail.....and a wonderful box from my Denmark friend Tina:):)

                  Here I have opened her package...she even sent me some scraps from her desk!!
 Jane wrapped everything so pretty..it was like my birthday or something!!!! Jane sends out her original art. She is one of the few people I can afford...I will get prints from other artist if that is all I can afford...But I really like it when artists make their art affordable for us common folk....I like the real stuff a lot better :):)
                                                                               
...and here are my new art pieces!!! They are mixed media canvas measuring 4x4, and 5x7. So, sweet!!! They just make me so happy!!!You can find Jane on instagram under the name ... janeblogs
                                                                               
                       .....above is where Jane's work will rest until I get my new studio built:):) Mindy is the two pieces on the out side, while Jane is in the middle, and my quilt hanging behind them all:):) And of course a small part of my ribbon collection under it all:):)
                                                                               
So, the packages Jane sent me had these cute little drawings on them...well I couldn't throw them out!!! So, I peeled them off the package very carefully....and made my own art piece with them:):) If you go back to the first photo you will see where I took them from:) This one measures 5x7
                                                                            
....and the second one!!  Now, I have a collaborated piece of art with my friend all the way from Down Under :):)
                                                                               
The last little drawing I stuck in my art journal!!! ...and found this saying that I really liked. "There is a magic in a long distant friendship. They let you relate to other humans in a way that goes beyond being physically together and is often more profound." by Diana Carla.  The background on this page was all the little scraps that Jane sent me...then I added color and paint...then her doodle on top of it all!! Very happy with how they all turned out.
                   
Thanks Jane for making such wonderful art my dear...never stop!!! You little bald people always make me smile and feel good inside...especially now that we have become friends:)

                                                             Much Love- Sandie

What fun for you, I know you could draw these cute little faces too, you should join Tim's Sally Ning group and take the True Free Spirit Group, all Mindys classes, you would love it, Once you are signed up and pay for that class it is open for you to access for 2 whole years, great deal, you get a video every month and you can go at your own speed, even get PDFs, such a fun place to play, it has your name written all over it, it is so you!!
Hugs, go check it out!

Thank you so very much for all the bloglove, dear Sandie!
What an amazing surprise :)

I absolutely adore what you've done with those little doodles from the packaging, all the colours are amazing together.

You have such a fantastic eye for colour & pattern, I love seeing your pic's on my instafeed, you brighten my day every single time :)

And Marilou is completely right - you could so draw those girls yourself & you should definitely check out Mindy's courses.
