No new Challenge today

Hi Peeps!

Just a reminder that the new challenges go up on the first Monday of a month - so that means the new one is up on Monday the 6th April!

In the meantime, have a great April 1st fooling around with the kiddies; stay virus free and stay indoors; wash those hands; and see you next week!!!


From my crafting companion and me!!!

Week 4 of the March Challenge!

Hello Peeps

Life is full of uncertainties at the moment so it is our job to try and make it a little bit better by providing some HOPE!

While we are all either in lock down or socially isolating those of us who have a craft space can go there and clear our heads with some quality crafty time. We can make something beautiful or funny and we can then pass this on to cheer up others.

#98 March Challenge, 2020 - Hope


What represents Hope?

Flowers (Tulips, Myrtle, Marjoram, Lotus, Daisy); castles in the air; clouds; sunshine; and sunrises; new beginnings and/or birth; energy and youth; to name only a few things.

You can tell us what represents HOPE to you.....

TWIST - use yellow as the main colour

What is more hopeful that a sunrise?



A breathtaking sunrise from the summit of kunanyi/Mt Wellington thanks to Dietmar Kahles from Lake of Tranquility who says:

This was easily one of the most amazing sunrises I've ever experienced.

I have a card to finish off the month
(Yes, I can walk without the moon boot and climb stairs and such
However, I cannot stand for long I have discovered so this is a simple card).




You can enter by scrolling sown to Week 1!
That's where the Linky is situated.
You have until midnight (AET) on Friday to enter.

Please remember - NO STAMPS

AND, Oh Boy,  with the Corona virus around we need all the hope we can get!

Here is some

Lockdown
Yes there is fear.
Yes there is isolation.
Yes there is panic buying.
Yes there is sickness.
Yes there is even death.
But,
They say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise
You can hear the birds again.
They say that after just a few weeks of quiet
The sky is no longer thick with fumes
But blue and grey and clear.

They say that in the streets of Assisi
People are singing to each other
across the empty squares,
keeping their windows open
so that those who are alone
may hear the sounds of family around them.

They say that a hotel in the West of Ireland
Is offering free meals and delivery to the housebound.

Today a young woman I know
is busy spreading fliers with her number
through the neighbourhood
So that the elders may have someone to call on.

Today Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and Temples
are preparing to welcome
and shelter the homeless, the sick, the weary

All over the world people are slowing down and reflecting
All over the world people are looking at their neighbours in a new way
All over the world people are waking up to a new reality

To how big we really are.
To how little control we really have.
To what really matters.
To Love.

So we pray and we remember that
Yes there is fear.
But there does not have to be hate.
Yes there is isolation.
But there does not have to be loneliness.
Yes there is panic buying.
But there does not have to be meanness.
Yes there is sickness.
But there does not have to be disease of the soul
Yes there is even death.
But there can always be a rebirth of love.
Wake to the choices you make as to how to live now.

Today, breathe.
Listen, behind the factory noises of your panic
The birds are singing again
The sky is clearing,
Spring is coming,
And we are always encompassed by Love.

Open the windows of your soul
And though you may not be able
to touch across the empty square,
Sing.
