Today we are starting a new challenge at
- Light and Darkness-
December is a dark and cold month in the northern hemisphere
and since thousands of years people have been celebrating
festivals which bring light into these days.
We light candles for Advent and Chanukka, put lights on the trees, light up our houses and towns with decorations, and look forward to the winter solstice – a festival celebrated by many ancient people – because it
means that the days start to get longer again.
We want you to show light on your journal pages, to show how light dispels the darkness etc.
Think of the sun, stars, moon, lanterns lighting the way, candles, the glow of the fire on a winter's evening – I am sure you will be able to come up with many ideas.
I made a mixed media/hybrid page:
Susi and I are looking forward to see your projects.
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday
This week has been very cold and frosty, but we had a lot
of sun and some beautiful dawn skies:
Yesterday Sabine visited me, and after a nice breakfast and some
crafty time we went by tram to the glass museum
and enjoyed the wonderful
objects on display:
Afterwards we went to the little Christmas market here in
Kaiserswerth, and ate some wonderful potato cakes
before walking back here for coffee and cake. I forgot to take photos at the market, I could only think of the lovely food!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
