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.

A Jiggery Makery lady has arrived

Here she is ...the first lady from the wonderful Jiggery Makery. She is a digital download only available through the Jiggery Makery facebook page. All copyrights belonging to this ladies digi are owned by it's wonderful designer Adele Bradwell. If you need to know more about any of the Jiggery Makery designs please contact Adele. To make this card I have used some background paper from my stash from the Pretty Tuff cd rom by Polka Doodles. I just love this image of the tennis player because it is something so different and I just couldn't resist coming up with a funny greeting. There are lots of my girl friends that would have a laugh at this one. I am so excited to now be a member of the Jiggery Makery design team and I am lucky enough to be able to share my designs with you. The lady featured, I have coloured with my copics, and I have to say that the joy I get from colouring is as great now as it was when I was a little My Gran knew that if she presented me with paper and pens she would be guaranteed an hours peace. To think that most adults have left the pleasure of colouring in behind how lucky are we crafters to get to still do it.

I took Reg for a wheel today along with four black's no wonder that people talk about On the way back it started to hammer it down..which saw Reg ignoring it, four cats hiding under a raspberry bush and one very damp wheelchair driver. Reg is the only dog that I've known that is not bothered in the slightest by going out in the rain. My old dog Hilly would just refuse to move if it began to rain.Reg just skips along..quite happy in his own little

Well the coffee is calling and I'm expecting visitors this evening. I will have to tidy up Regs memory foam madness. I don't know where he keeps getting more from. It seems every time I look up he has put even more lumps of the stuff on the carpet. So after the coffee it'll be a case of woman with dustpan and brush..I can't use the hoover because the lumps are so big ..they just block it up. Reg has a lot to answer So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
