NOTE TO OUR ARTISTS:

It is with immense sadness Ann and I report that our very dear friend, Marie Markham, passed away this morning after a year-long battle with illness following her surgery a year ago. Marie and I met on a pen pal site in 1999 and have communicated almost daily since then. She was the driving force in establishing our three digital art challenge blogs--Take a Word , Three Muses, and Digitalmania. Our friend, Ann Baker from the UK, joined us and we three friends who have never met managed the three blogs for over ten years. Ann and I have continued to manage them during Marie's illness. We have sorely missed her talent and wit. We know you join us in extending our deepest sympathy to Marie's family in Perth.

THE THREE MUSES CELEBRATE .....

Oooooooh CAKES ALL ROUND !!!
Well, who would have thought it?  When Bev, Marie and I each dipped a tentative toe into the blog challenge world with the creation of the Three Muses who thought we would still be going strong two years later and celebrating our second birthday this week with so many fantastic cyber friends! 

Bev, Marie and I started the Three Muses, but you lovely people have embraced it, supported it and made it into the happy and creative meeting place we truly feel it is and we thank you so much.

To celebrate 'turning two' and to say thank you for your friendship and support we will be having a birthday prize draw and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning  is to do what you do best …. post a piece of your art on the theme of BLUE!

As always, just in case you need a little help to get your creative juices flowing, I have created a sample for your inspiration.

Have fun and enjoy!

  17. Dear friends - I have found that if you have a comment box that has a small box at the bottom that says "select profile" the blog is blocking my comments...this has been the case with me for three days...is anyone else having this problem???
    If you haven't recieved a comment from me that's the reason...I have looked at all your work and it is fabulous!!!
