Week 10 - Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

And breathe! Life is still full on with regular trips down to London but I think the end is in sight with the house almost cleared. Trouble is a lot things especially crafty bits seem to have found their way home with me! Thank you to everyone who left comments for me on Week 9 and it shouldn't be long, with luck and a following wind, before I can go on weekly visits to your blogs to see what you've all been creating.

Week 10 brings the letter K and my chosen word Kindred was dictated by this uninked PaperArtsy stamp in my collection.  Hooray, I'm back on the un-used track! Well, actually, it might have been used before as it was second hand but it hasn't been used by me - until now. I've assumed the kindred spirits pictured in this image are all authors - Ann Bronte, Mary Shelley, Charlotte Bronte, Jane Austen, and Elizabeth Gaskell. If you know better, please let me know.

What a good word and great image to go with it -- In a way, you could say that we all have a kindred spirit!
