Feed Your Soul: The Free Art Project

I came upon something today that made my heart so so so happy!  It is an amazing project that I would never do justice to if I tried to tell you about it.  So, I copied and pasted their "About" page:

News flash….the economy sucks. The stock market is up & down, people are losing their jobs and homes, all sorts of businesses are closing down & nobody seems to have any idea what the hell is going on. That’s the bad news…
Now for the good news. Even though the economy is tanking, it’s more important than ever to stay positive. We shouldn’t dwell on the negative news, it’s just not doing our souls any good. To that end, I came up Feed Your Soul: the free art project to hopefully bring a smile to your face and brighten your day.
“What is this Feed Your Soul: the free art project?”
Well, every month I will share FREE ART with you from artists that I have invited to participate in the project. Each invited artist will contribute one print that you can print out on some cardstock and frame or even just thumbtack to the wall.
“Why are you doing this?”
Well, I love art and I know you do too. I also know that when people start to tighten up the purse strings they tend not spend money on things that aren’t necessary for survival, things like books, magazines and art. But, art is important for your soul. It helps rejuvenate, it’s thought-provoking, offers inspiration and can generally brighten an otherwise dreary day among other things. In addition to helping brighten your day and put a little spring in your step, I want to help promote some of my favorite artists.
“Which artists are going to be participating?”
Go here to see a schedule of upcoming artists.
“I’m an artist, can I contribute?”
I’d love to take a look at your work, just send me an email,
“Okay, so where’s my free art?”
Just visit the Downloads page to see all the available downloads.
“What about legal stuff?”
You can print and share these downloads for personal use. You may not sell them or use them in anyway for profit. You may share them on your blog, email them, twitter about them, etc just make sure to give credit to Feed Your Soul: the free art project and the artists.
“Who are you?”
I'm Jen Wallace the writer behind the blog Indie Fixx. Indie Fixx is a celebration of the creativity, tenacity, and general spunky goodness that is the indie design movement. The indie design movement is made up of artists, crafters and designers who make a literal smorgasbord of delectable indie products. Once you shop indie, you’ll never go back.
“How do I contact you?”
You can send me an email.
I hope you enjoy and remember to feed your soul with some art! You can see some of my framed prints all ready to hang on my wall below.

Now, if this doesn't make your heart happy, then your heart is made of stone!!  Hahaha!  I'm just kidding!  But please go and check them out!
