Artists, Photographers and Haiku



For Paint Party Friday ~ Watercolor brush painting ~ Hug Holiday





Found in next town over ~ Outside Xmas Decoration ~ Unique ~ for Friday Foto




For Carpe Diem Haiku





Self expression through creativity is the focus today and each day whether it is art, photography, brush painting or haiku. These activities fill each day whether we drive to the next town in search of unique and creative photos or are on our daily walks. Creativity surrounds us in nature as well as within our home, visiting blogs and it is there to be seen ~ so simple yet so divine.

We are also involved with Rebecca's 12 Days of Mary  which has a separate page on this blog just below the 'header photo'. (click it on to see my various days of mary) It is not about religion; it is about the divine feminine surrounding us all.

We are also sharing and participating with:

We love to have you post your comments, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day ~ especially, ArtMuse Dog ^_^

  33. Hi Carol, like Gloria I had trouble making the page land on the comment section. I think there may be animation or music here that my old, old computer doesn't mesh well with. Anyway, I love the snowman. We can't get enough hugs, nor can we give too many. Your sunny background for your wonderful haiku is gorgeous.
