Introducing Whimsical Wednesday


This is a weekly challenge I have created for myself and any who would like to join. The common human experience is suffering - sorrow and sadness mark much of the world. My invitation is to bring a bit of delight into the despair. I spend a lot of time with children and in turn they have taught me how to play. So, come and join the play. Each week I will post some whimsy on Wednesday and I invite you to share your own whimsical creations (any medium). Simply post your link in the magical widget of the Wednesday post (like the one below - you don't need to leave a comment). For more info, click on the WHIMSICAL WEDNESDAY tab at the top left of the blog or simply click here.

add your link if you would like:

Looks like fun, but I have a very silly question to ask. I've come across the word 'whimsey' a lot as I've explored the creative blogosphere, but I've yet to see a definition. What exactly makes a piece 'whimsey'?

I ask because I want to know the limits of the challenge so I can play :D

Thanks heaps for inviting me.

I was with you until I saw the "kid friendly" stipulation. Unless your kids are Rhoda Penmark or Damien Thorn, I'll have to take a pass.
