Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

Christmas in Blue


Todays card is from a cdrom from Creative Crafting World called Magical Christmas Moments. It really is a fabulous cdrom and if like me you adore cats and is a must have. There is not one image on this cd that I wouldn't use. I can see that I will be using this cd for many years to come. There are some fabulous backing papers too..some of which you would be able to use at any time of year. What you can't see on the photo is the glitter that I have added. All I did was add some glitter to the snowy areas and it looks quite magical. I will be sharing other images from this cd during this week.
Today in Snowdonia, the sun is shining but the skies are dark grey. Goodness knows what weather is on it's way. The cats are in and out like yoyos..they can feel something on the air. It's like crafting in the middle of a roundabout. As one comes in by my left will go out by my right shoulder. And cats on both sides demand fuss..and people wonder why they end up covered in
It's not that long ago that I started on this blogging adventure and I have to say that I still love it. If anything it has given me an incentive to be more creative. I have spoken to many people who are thinking of starting their own blogs and encourage them to do it...after all if I can do it..anyone can. Me and computers are not a marriage made in heaven..but I'm still learning. I've found so many people that are willing to share their knowledge..people that I don't know who just share a love of crafting..and through this I've made some great online friends. So if you're thinking about it.
So now I'm off to glitter the world..or at least a few christmas cards..wherever you are..I hope you have a good day..take care and happy crafting
