I’m so thrilled! Fellow blogger (and virtual friend) Andrea Huelsenbeck of ARHtistic License did an entire post about My One Beautiful Thing! If you don’t already follow her, I strongly recommend you go check her out. Like me, she is interested in all things creative. and her Creative Juice Friday posts include loads of wonderful links.

This very special edition of Creative Juice features posts from My OBT, one of my very favorite blogs. Every day, Donna shares something beautiful—or not so beautiful. I include at least one of her posts in CJ each week, but I have so many in reserve I thought I’d bless you with a whole bunch today.
