Snowing in St. Ives

1. *** 2. Happy Christmas, everyone! 3. Following the light of the sun we left the old world 4. "Out of the bosom of the airout of the cloud-folds of her garments shakenover the woodlands brown and bareover the harvest-fields forsakensilent, and soft, and slow descends the snow" 5. Winter wonderland 2 6. a conversation 7. Cold 8. Snow seed memory 9. Alfred Snowman

Yes ... it's snowing in St. Ives!
enough snow for birdie prints
... like a child ... I'm very excited about this ...

Snowy greetings and blessings to you all :o)

Monika ... the photos are from flickr and I put the links underneath the photo so please do go and visit the artists' work ... they are all so gorgeous!

I think if snowflakes were musical they would sound like a ... winter harp ...

Dear Carolyn
I want to say how much I love your snow effects you have on your other blog, Love stitching red, & the snow flakes here. The music is also calming & nice as well.

Where I am in Australia it is very warm & seeing the snow is very cooling :-) Thank You

Hi Carolyn,
I have been trying to get in touch with you for a while now. My name is Jodie Harvey and I am studying art and design at a-level at the minute. I have been so inspired by your work for the last few years, and have found most of my work being very similar to your own. I was just wondering if you would mind possibly answering a few questions as I have to complete an assessment essay on an artist that has been most inspiration to me. I would greatly appreciate this.
If possible could you forward me your email address or if it would suit you better, email me at jodieharvey33@hotmail.co.uk.
Than you for taking the time to read this and I hope to hear from you soon :-)
Jodie.

love the snow images- cold but poetic and quiet mediation.

Carolyn: we are "friends" on the sketchbook site, but sad to say I have been way too slow in working on my book. I am DETERMINED to send something in January! In the meantime, I am working on a three inch winter swap with two friends, and my little pieces were inspired by your lovely winter 9 patch .I am working in fabric and would love to send you a collection of odds and ends (some chosen for inclusion and some rejected) from that project. Will you send your address to me?Sharon at crzydqltr@cox.net. Love both your blogs!!!
