It's been a wet Christmas rather than an icy one this year but there is a bit of icy sparkle around if you know where to look...

My lovely friend Lisa (thelastkrystallos) was promoting a competition before Christmas organised by her talented daughter BekahCat.

The Contest:
I wanted something that all of you could take part in so I decided we would have an arts competition with three categories so there will be a winner from each category.

1: T-shirt design
2: A Piece of Art (This can be anything from photography, makeup to traditional art)
3: A piece of creative writing (50 words)

The theme of the contest is 'Ice' so your piece must tie in with that theme in some way.

I was reminded about this competition the other day on Facebook and as I haven't yet missed the deadline it would be sooooo rude NOT to enter.

The only icy photo I could find to enter is this one, taken 28th November 2010, two weeks and a day after Andrew died - but that's a whole other story and a whole other blog!

And here is my ice themed creative writing entry...

Essie first remembered skating aged four with Papa, his steady arms guiding and protecting.

At Twenty-four she skated with her fiancé gliding effortlessly, creating perfect circles.

She died alone aged eighty four, slipping on the way to the bird table with crumbs in hand and happy memories in her heart.

Thanks to Bekah for hosting this competition.

Please pop over to her blog to look at and read the other entrants. Remember you have until the end of the year to enter!
