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.

Moon baby

Todays card is a new baby card that I made for a friends daughter. I just love this know how much I love it was an easy choice for me. The image and the backing paper are from the wonderful Hollypond Hill cdrom from Joanna Sheen. I have framed the image using a die from Tonic. Even though I have used this image for a card for a little boy, it could easily be for a little girl. I normally don't do cute as some images I find a little too much but I just love the images on both Hollypond Hill and the Hollypond Hill Christmas. And the backing papers are gorgeous..some of them I wish I could have as wallpaper. While I was making this card I thought it would be nice to make a card for the new grandparents as well, as my friend was so excited about becoming a grandma at last. I'm happy to say that this one little boy who is lucky enough to be born into a wonderful family that will surround him with love. Who could wish for more.

I feel as if I'm recovering a little today from the nightmare that has been this week. I'm hoping that I can get to 6 oclock tonight with no more phonecalls or visits. Then hopefully I can spend the weekend crafting and get myself centered again.It really has been horrible this week and I feel in some ways it took me back into the space I was just after Henrys death. I spent weeks feeling as if I was hanging on to my sanity by my fingertips and took a lot to get out of that space. Then with no consideration or warning the agencies put me right back there. But today has been calm, I took Reg for a wheel and have managed to get my work sorted out for the weekend. I have had some new products come my way and will be sharing them with you next week. I love them and was surprised with the quality and selection...I know I'm teasing..but I promise I will share next

Well the coffee is calling and then I'm just going to put some music on and craft my way back to sanity..or at least my version of hope you all have a fabulous weekend and always remember to have a little me time. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
