Hi SSSKiki, Fa la la la Patricia, Dear Nancy, Rey-Rey and Miss Terry!

It's so great seeing you all here on this snowy image.

Let me put more logs on the fire and get the cocoa going! Shall I?

I will read you some poetry by the fire. Just a few dozen until you fall fast asleep under your cozy blankets! :)

Thank you all for being here!

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


It was perfect to make the effect I wanted at the top of the final image to make stars or snow.

In my minds eye it started as stars but if it truly was a snowy night we would see no stars. Just snow and blackness.
