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.

The Girl and the Bunny

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful JB-Crafting Supplies. This card is make using a paper pad from Joanna Sheen, featuring the amazing art work of Margaret Tarrant.I don't know what I like the best...the fact that this card has a bunny in the picture or the fact that it's pink.I'm normally a very traditional christmas card maker...I love greens and reds and gold..but I have to say I'm really loving the pink today. It's got me to thinking about some designs that I have in my library of pink and blue bells..I may have to find them out soon.

Well this morning here in the mountains was eventful to say the least. Here I was trying to be all efficient, getting the housework out of the way before I started crafting...a novelty in the electric went off. At first I thought that it was something that I'd done..but then I realised that the whole village was off. So much for me becoming a domestic All I had managed to do was empty the house bins, feed the cats, clean the cat pens, hoover half the floor and suddenly there was only darkness.I couldn't even do my blogs or even worse..I couldn't have a coffee. So now instead of crafting later it looks as if I will be finishing the hoovering. Reg hates it when I hoover..he spends the whole time tryingto avoid me which usually means that he gets wrapped up in the The cats just look at me as if I have lost my mind...but that's nothing

So just a short one for me today. I will have to spend the rest of the day playing catch up. This week I'm hoping to share some wonderful artwork with you. I have become the proud owner of 3 pieces of original artwork by the very talented Marily of Marilys Art Nest..if you get a chance please check her face book page out. She recently joined in a 30 day challenge...she painted a picture every day for 30 days. I am lucky to now own the fox,the wolf and the owl. My hardest decision is where to put them. I have quite a collection of original art work that needs to find it's right place on my walls. I especially love the fox and the wolf from Marily as that represents what Vixenvarg means. It was the vixen for  me and varg is another name for a wolf which was to represent Henry. Also a collared wolf is part of our family crest. The owl has now become Henrys symbol...after a drawing he did of an owl which is now featured on T shirts. The great thing is that people are now taking pictures of themselves wearing the t shirt and posting them onto a face book page. I have a map of the world and a large map of the british isles and when my wall has been painted I'm going to mark everywhere that Henrys owl travels to. To me it is an ongoing memorial to him and means a lot to me.

Well the coffee can finally was shouting before but to no I hope the weather is being kind to you wherever you are. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
