Magical, Macro and Creative Everyday

Lovely Purple Flowers from Myrtle Vine

Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of an artist's soul and explore how creativity can enhance the inner spirit.

For Haiku Heights and others who might like to read haiku poetry click on the tab above entitled Haiku April 22nd ~ 30. Thanks ^_^

Today we are exploring our own Blog Hop ~ Magical Monday Meme. And Macro Monday and Creative Everyday.

Magical Monday is open to anyone who is the least bit creative ~ some ideas, parenting, photography, painting, sketching, knitting, poetry, and more. I am hoping to provide a forum on Mondays for some of those non-traditional creatives who think they are not creative because they don't compose music, write poetry or paint ~ as well as those who do. We want 'you' who create ~ your medium ~ your style. Just link up at the bottom of this post where it reads 'enter here' ~ 'you are next' ~ Love to have you join us and tell your friends. Only rule is: Leave your link to your post that you want to share (not your main part of blog) and post a link on your blog back to Magical Monday Meme. Thanks.

We are also linked to Lisa's  Macro Monday and the photo above is for that link. The third and last photo is for Leah's  Creative Everyday ~ (click on highlighted links to go there.)

Please wish, pray, send positive Energy for Carl (my brother) and his family ~ Carl is doing okay ~ but in hospital for severe asthma attack. He is recovering nicely but could use your well wishes. Thanks ^_^

Hugs and namaste,


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

QUOTE FOR THE DAY: ' May you live all the days of your life.'
(Jonathan Swift) 


  1. Love the flowers, family, and the painting! :)

    Your comment vanished, but I was going to tell you that I DO have each comment moderated and in the past I could read them, publish them, and then they showed up as emails. Now I can read them, publish them, but they may or may not show up in my inbox via email. Seems like maybe around 80% of them do. This has only been happening since they switched me over. But I do have the same boxes checked that I always did. I checked. It is so random. *sigh* I hope it just repairs itself.

  2. I like the wall of little purple flowers. I hope your brother recovers quickly!

  3. Lovely shot of the Vinca!
    Prayers for Carl. Hope he's feeling better soon.

  4. Always cool links and visits here. Thanks for hosting, have a great week.

  5. This watercolour work and Haiku is gorgeous. I love the pen and splatter details. Just remembered it is Monday. I could link up my post if it is relevant:)

  6. Hi Carol,

    I can't wait to see what you are putting in your friend's art gallery. I know that is nerve wracking, but am sure your art will be appreciated.

  20. Carol,
    Lovely feeling came over me as I read your post this morning, I felt I was on the east coast, in a small harbor town, lovely family too, thanks for the transport from MN.
