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.

Booful and the Robin

Todays card is another Booful one. I used a backing paper from my stash and added a paper which I had embossed with snowflakes. I then added the christmas tree and the lovely Booful image. He really is a cute little figure. I din't know what I was going to do with him at first but I have to say I'm having lots of fun.
Yesterday was a lovely day for me ...I had some lovely comments and messages. I was so touched that you shared your christmas memories of your animals with me. I have often said that our animals bring so much pleasure and make us laugh despite ourselves. Yesterday the christmas preparations began and already cat chaos took over the house. They all had a need to help and everytime something moved there was a cat in the way. So we haven't been able to get as far along as we thought we would...but today is another day and we'll be trying again.For a reason known only to him ..the kitten Jeff has been carrying a candle holder round all morning. It is quite a heavy one that hold 3 candles and has pine boughs attached. Well this poor candle holder has been dragged around and up and down the does seem to be the decoration of choice for this
Well the coffee is calling and I feel it's time to try the decoration thing again. I hope you have a really good until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
