Finding Magic


Sometimes a few days can pass by, one day blending into the next. Nothing special, nothing to recall. And then sometimes, something magic will happen. If you’re lucky, you’ll notice it. If you’re smart, you’ll capture it as a reminder that beauty is always just around the corner.

This was what was waiting for me when I got home from work today. The petals fell off of the trees while I was gone, and the asphalt in front our apartment was so evenly covered. It looked like a blanket of confetti, or a polka dotted parking lot. I was so happy to have been there in that moment.

Speaking of magic… do you remember when blogs were new, and we were all so closely intertwined through blog posts and link lists? Tammy from Daisy Yellow is on a mission to revive link love! She has proposed that we commit to sharing at least five links four times in April. There is so much beauty and magic out there, so let’s share it!

Head over to Daisy Yellow if you’d like to join in the link love! I’d also love to hear about unexpected magic you’ve found this week in the comments!

    Tricia, I’m so excited that you have joined the mission to spread link love. I am intrigued by your collection of links and shall visit each of them today! And the scene with the white petals is magical! {in an urban sort of way}!!

    Hi Tricia, I’m a collaborator at Tammy’s Link love too – that’s how I found your blog. Nice to meet you! I love the picture of the petals, happy dots indeed!

    Fate has lead me here. I saw such beautiful patterns on your flickr and faved them. I instantly thought there might be a story on them so I had to check your blog! And then I saw your sweet words about my Gesso Phases!

    Thanks so much, it made my day. I have an entire book about them to show you, and can’t wait! I really love the patterns you made on your Glue It Tuesday post. Such nice spring colors, child! LOVE. Keep up the great work, so nice to see such refreshing work!

    Such a great idea of Tammy’s at Daisy Yellow to encourage sharing. I’ll be visiting the links you’ve posted and coming back to your blog for sure.

    Happy Share the Link Love!!

    Great Links!

    Danny Gregory’s Creative License was one of the first books I read on my journey to becoming an artist. I didn’t know there was a new book out there; Thanks for sharing!
