“She was fascinated with words. To her, words were things of beauty, each like a magical powder or potion that could be combined with other words to create powerful spells.”
Dean Koontz

Continuing my commitment to share fun finds here at DY: 

Karen of I am Rushmore has added her delightful creative bits to our postcards for the collaborative mail art project. Here's the introduction to the project, to see where it started.

Mary of uncustomary is {creatively} working through 100 ways to be creative.

At Ten Paces and Draw, illustrations of various characters from the beloved Downton Abbey.

Diane adds insight to the discussion of Free + Sustainability in her post Re-Calculating. This progression of thought stems from her rational choice to cease her podcast. Don't skip the comments. I wrote about the demise of Diane's podcast in this post

For years, I've been enamored with the fashion photography at The Sartorialist.

Love Lizzie Bo's collaged pages at Green Glass.

Helen Dardik's designs make me happy.

Eden adds the finishing touches on her drawings with a Sakura Micron. 

Ricë shares thoughts on dying fabric at Notes from the Voodoo Café and here's my fav quote, "I learned The Science Part--the rules, the steps, The Right Way--and then I moved on to The Art Part: playing around and seeing what it can do."

I'm loving the cut+paste therapy that Aimee prompted. Check out the links to the yummy gluey goodness at Artsyville.

Tommy Kane created a happy video called Let's Dance

Kate doodles with such a cool graffiti feel in Dawn's book Art Doodle Love. I drew in the book in slicci pens and gelly rolls for the book's blog hop.
