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 Santa Mystery

Todays card has a funny story attached to it. I know that this image comes from a wonderful cdrom by Creative Crafting World..and that's all I know at the I started this card..well printing out the pages..last year. And I lost it in a few dozen piles of printed out, ready to do sheets. Well as I was sorting out space to put cards away yesterday..I found it and decided to make it straight away before I lost it The only trouble that remains is that I'm yet to find the The santa is decoupaged and I feel that it has a lovely folky feel to it. I will have to hunt out the cd and then I'll let you know what it's name is. My trouble is that I have hundreds of cds and I recently 'sorted' them out...consequently I don't know where anything is. I have some new cds which have arrived ready for spring time crafting so I've had to put them away for a couple of months but at least I'm ready for the new year.

What I came to realise yesterday is that my page views are just about to hit the 10,000.  can hardly believe seems so amazing. I can still remember when I began to blog and was stunned when I reached 100 views. It has been such a journey that you've followed. Learning all the new things that I've had to master, the up and downs of life and the tales of my cats which I've been lucky enough to share with you all. You all helped and supported me through losing Henry and I know that you have helped me carry on. I have received so many messages from you, sharing your own pain, your joys and your cards..everyone of you has helped me to see a light through the darkness. So thank you all. My blogging journey has been something that I've come to love...I'm still amazed at what I've had to learn to do on the computer..I really am useless with it but I have persevered and learnt what I need if I can do it..anyone can. There are still things that I want to take a better picture is on my list of things to do. I see so many cards that have been beautifully photographed and know that mine are not that good..but I will carry on trying to improve.

The weather here today seems to be waiting. At the moment it's not doing anything but I get the impression that we are in for a storm...just as I speak it's started to rain..I'm expecting an influx of wet cats any Some of my cats..Rave, Tankie and Milky have refused to go out and have made themselves comfortable in the kitchen. Twinkle and Icabod are curled up together fast asleep and even Reg seems to be quiet. But in this house you can never tell what's going to happen

Well the coffee is calling and so is the work. I hope that you have a wonderful day and thanks again for all your support and friendship. The journey carries on. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.

  1. Todays card is so cute, really nice. I've been assembling all my xmas craft goodies together so I can get crafting as i've decided to book a stall at the craft fair in the village. Not sure if I need business cards-too organised I say!!
