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. Thank you, Andrea, for the feature!
One of my favorite blogs, which I visit almost every day, is MyOBT, which stands for “one beautiful thing.” Donna’s mission is to post one beautiful thing every day, and she succeeds, although sometimes the post might be more funny than beautiful. (But I always appreciate a laugh—don’t you?) If you follow Creative Juice every Friday, you know it almost always contains a post from MyOBT. I try not to post more than one article from any one blog on a single Friday, but in Donna’s case I sometimes have to make an exception, because her output of beauty is just so vast and I want to share it all. In fact, if you love her posts, too, you should follow her blog yourself so you don’t miss a single one. If you need more convincing, today’s CJ features a dozen wonderful posts from MyOBT.

Yay, me! Yay, you! Yay, us!

My phone went nuts and tried to publish a draft I was meaning to delete. So here, instead is a wonderfully creepy version of the already-creepy Police song “Every Breath You Take” by the mostrously-talented Chase Holfelder.
If you like this (and I’m sure you will), here’s the post I wrote about him in 2014:
How sweet is this? Fellow blogger and hunter of beautiful things, Andrea Huelsenbeck of ARHtistic License featured my blog today! What a fantastic way to start a weekend. Go check out Andrea’s blog!
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. If you enjoy them, you might want to subscribe to My OBT so you never miss a single one.
