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.

Vintage Roses

Todays card is a lovely image from Aspire Crafts. The image came on a pad with lots of great romantic vintage images. The pad I think is A6 in may be a little bigger but all the images are classic and so nice to use. This card is a 7x7 and the only things that I have added are some die cut border from the Signature die range and some toning backing paper from the Hollypond Hill cdrom. It is a very simple card for me but I thought that the image was so lovely, it didn't need anything else. All my life I have tried painting roses because I love them so much, I live in hope that one day I will get it right. I have a pink rose bush in my garden and it blooms every year without fail. It must be a really hardy variety because it has bloomed for the past 24 years without the slightest attention from me. I'm not good with plants...they have to fight their own fights in my

I am happy to say that my shelves are now in fact better than they were before the chaos. I have sorted my cdrom library....sorted my peeloffs...boxed all my gems and pearls...and came to the conclusion that my passion for pearls,gems, lace and ribbon knows no end. The one thing that I can't find is my box of stencils and masks. I'm getting the urge to make some backing papers myself and seeing that I have collected many masks and stencils over the past year with this thought in mind...I just wish I could remember where I've put

It was the day of my second B12 injection and all I can say that is any different is the fact that I've had a slight headache ever since the last one. After reading the paperwork it seems that a headache can be one of the side effects...well thanks for that. I'm now drinking loads in the hope that the headache will go. Some of my friends are real headache people and suffer badly with them. But I have been lucky and never been a headachy I find it hard and turn into a right whiny wimp. Keep your fingers crossed that it leaves me before my friends

Well not only is the coffee's sitting by my side smelling until tomorrow take care and happy crafting
