And they lived happily ever after.....
This week, the challenge is to fill in the blanks. A good fairy tale usually has a host of mythical characters (fairies, goblins, elves, princesses) doing some supernatural, mystical deeds in fantastical, imaginary lands.
Explore your imagination. What traditions, fables and folklore get your creative juices flowing?
All art forms welcome. For the rules see the "How To" section in the sidebar. I'll come collecting next Sunday morning and bring the goodies back here. Stay tuned!

We are artists. We make things. We are smart and see the world differently then those who do not have the need to create.
We are ingenious! inventive! clever! imaginative!
Show us how your mind works! Share your ingenuity!
While some postings contain an artistic image and perhaps a short verse, other submissions possess additional elements that lay beyond their visual beauty and reside in the back stories, behind their creation. These stories are often enchanting and moving, they reach deeply and touch our souls. So please... do take the time to visit these artists and their submissions, read about the creative process behind their work and the beauty & mystery of this week's challenge that touches all our lives.
Here are this week's submissions...
