Word for the year......

I came a cross Sussanah Conways  blog  SusannahConway.com via Kim Klassens workshop and took a workshop with Jane La Fazio janelafazio.com/ a couple of years ago.........

Both of these lovely teachers are encouraging their blog followers to choose a work for the year....a word to encourage, enrich and support what ever you feel that the year might hold for you.

I thought about doing this last year, but somehow didn't get around to it...but if you join Susannahs blog she sends five e mails, one a day, which guide through the process, a mini workshop, which I've enjoyed doing over the holidays. 

My word is CREATIVE ........it was confirmed yesterday morning when I started the Guardian crossword and there it was! 

Hope that you find your word for 2015......enjoy the process and are supported by it through 2015.

Three things.......

Another 'three things' challenge from Kim at 'Be Still 52'

I have been watching this rose outside my kitchen window, for weeks, wondering if it would make it until Christmas.

Here it is, it has been through frost, storm, wind and one day of snow in the far north of England. 

It came inside this dark afternoon, to be photographed with a soft pink cashmere scarf that I have been wearing and one of my Handpainted, Pure Italian Wool wraps.....Santa hasn't collected this one....and I can't think why...it's my favorite! 

I had an idea about softness, crystal and the rose........

Edited on my i pad with a 'fade' filter.

A very happy and peaceful Christmas to you all......

Food photo!

Don't think I'd ever have made a good photographer........but here's this weeks Kim Klassen 'Be Still 52' prompt. Three things.......and I was making soup and hey presto there were three things....my lovely chopping board, dark with oil, tea towel and the veggies...grabbed my camera and here's the result. Edited on the i pad with a chrome filter.

Now I'm going to have my breakfast!

Have a lovely Sunday........:-)
