January Challenge Theme: Winter Whites and Icy Blues

It’s almost 2012 !

January's Monthly Challenge Theme

We’ll be starting the New Year by celebrating on the Challenge Blog with Winter Whites and Icy Blues... That's right, January's Challenge theme is: Show us a wintery white or icy blue product !

Here are a few examples...


By Elaine Magliaro

After the blizzard
snowmen are sprouting up
like winter wildflowers

Sleet tap-dances
on my roof, clicks its icy heels
on my windowpane

Snowflakes fluttering
from a wintry sky…a flock
of white butterflies

With his frosty feet
little mouse prints a message
in the snow: Hello!

Like stars shaken from
The sky, snowflakes whirling down
In white galaxies

A snowman shadow

paints himself in blue upon

a cold white canvas

So what are you waiting for… enter today!
