Let Love Grow - AEDM & Shared Messages

AEDM Day 5

I'm linking up with Art Every Day Month throughout the month of November.

Creating art each day: doodling, painting, journal making, stamping, photographing, etc.

I'm also linking up with Andrea at DreAm**heArt**sMart**ArT - today's theme was heart.

While watching tv last night, I sat down with paper and my micron pens. I had a goal of making a tree and adding a few hearts to meet the theme challenge.  Well, one heart turned into many.

Due to Hurricane Sandy, it seems that all around me is chaos and frustration. I'm safe and have a home - for that I am grateful. So, I wanted to capture the love that I have for Superman and for our life together.

Let love grow... #aedm2012 #doodle #art #micron

Hop over to Leah's website and visit a few other creative soul's who are participating in AEDM.

And, don't forget to visit Andrea's site for all the hearts that were inspired via her challenge.

For those of you who follow my blog regularly, you know that Monday usually means Shared Messages from the Universe. Well, today is no different.

It is my belief that messages from the universe speak to me and remind me of something that is inside of me. When I first see them, I often don't even know what is really being advertised. Instead, the message conjures emotions or thoughts relating to something that is going on within me; in my heart, in my mind, in my soul. I see them on billboards, in magazines, store windows, church plaques...everywhere.

I secretly call them soul whispers.

The messages are all around us


Live this #nyc

The above message was drawn on the sidewalk in my neighborhood. As I walked to yoga, I walked right past it like a typically New Yorker in a hurry to get somewhere. I had to turn around to capture the photo.

It is such a simple message. In the city that I live in with so many still cold, hungry, and without shelter this message touches my heart. Be thankful for where you are, what you have, and I encourage to give to those who are in need.

As always, thanks for visiting, commenting, and following along on my creative journey.


  1. Hi Lori, lovely to meet you via Andrea's Blog Challenge. I do like your tree, I am sure many came down in the storm. My entry is on my blog "Vignettes deal vie" I'd love you to pop over and take a peek. :)Suzi

  2. Hi Lori,
    I'm also coming over through Andrea's Blog Challenge. That's a lovely drawing, I really enjoy the "heart tree". We really need to listen to our heart, open it and send out the love we feel.

    All the best for everyone who got hit by the storm. I'm glad you're safe.

  7. Hi Lori! My heart is hurting for the people affected by Sandy too. Your tree drawing is beautiful, and I love how the hearts form the leaves. That chalk drawing is fun too. It's a good reminder to go slow and notice the beauty around us.
