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.

White stripes

Todays card features some of the wonderful artwork of Pollyanna Pickering. This cd is available from the wonderful team at Creative Crafting World. There is so much on the cds produced by this team. There are an absolute mass of images, in lots of different styles, alongside backing papers, greetings, gift name's on there. I love this image of the would make a great card for a male..just something a little different. The border is also from the cd..the image is so really doesn't need anything else.

As I am sat here today I keep shaking my head..just to hear the sound of my earrings. I have always said that it doesn't take a lot to get me excited but today I am so happy. I have never been able to have my ears pierced because of my blood condition and have spent years searching for something I would wear that was a clip on. Years passed and I was just so jealous of my friends when they showed me their fabulous earrings. Because I'm a large lady and a little bit gothy (I know..but I've never really grown out of it since my punk, I never wanted to wear small earrings. They would just get lost. And then to my absolute joy as I was trawling facebook I happened to come across a small business that created earrings and yes there was clip ons and oh my goodness they were fabulous. I contacted the owner Annette because I spotted a pair of long dangling beauties and asked if they could be made for clips and here they are sitting on my ears. I'm just so chuffed. I contacted Annette again and asked if she had anything a bit gothy..anything with skulls..she didn't but then she sourced some for me. They will be arriving in a couple of weeks.The name of the business is Annnettes Beads..I found them on their facebook page but they also have a website is full of wonderful beads and so much more. If you get the chance please check them out..Annette is so lovely and the work that she has put into making this gothy lady happy is a total credit to her. When my gothy earrings arrive I will take a photo so you can share in my joy.

What a day today has been. I had to speed wheel with Reg..we had got about half way back and it started to rain. I was wheeling as fast as I could, there were flying cats everywhere. They didn't know what to do..get out of the road of the rain or stay with When I got back I decided to do the prep for dinner tonight..and then I even made scones with my spare hand whilst washing up. I managed to shock myself that I could manage to get so much done in a sort space of time. I think it was the fact that I wanted to sit down and paint that pushed me

Well the coffee is calling and so is a scone.I hope you have a fabulous weekend. So until tomorrow ..take care and happy crafting
