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.

Come fly with me

Todays creation is a design team make for the wonderful Jiggery Makery. Let me introduce you to Tess, the sassy witch. Tess is a digi design created by Adele at Jiggery Makery.I decided to make a hanging decoration for the parlour door for Halloween. I made this using a cardboard frame that I had in my stash. I painted the frame using my acrylics..painting the sky a mixture of blues and purples, then painted a tree shape and the mountains in black. I have also glittered a number of stars in the sky.I coloured the image of Tess using my H2Os and then glittered her skirt, hat and of course her shoes. I then cut her out and suspended her from the frame edgeusing a small piece of acetate. The really cool thing is that when the door is opened or closed, she swings and it gives the impression that she is flying. I have taken another picture below which shows the great shadows that she creates. Just right for Halloween.

The weather seems to have calmed down in the mountains today. Thank goodness. The damp weather has really affected poor Reg.It's made him stiff in his back legs..he is getting on for the next couple of days I'll be making sure that he's warm and comfy. At the moment he's being loved by Jeffrey..I really don't think that Reg has a choice in this matter..bless him. As most of you know Reg sleeps on my bed but can't jump on the bed any more...he has his own little baby chair which enables him to get up..I thought that perhaps he wouldn't be able to get up last night. Well I was wrong. He got on the chair and then onto my bedding box and then finally onto the bed. He is a very determined little

Well I've lots to do, my plan is to do my die cutting in readiness for the christmas crafting and I have lots of design team work to do.So I think that I'm going to head off for a coffee and a roll and then begin. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
