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.

Cat in a hat

As you all know I am slightly cat you must know that I just had to use this wonderful stamp from the Stampendous range. Again I had to colour this kitty ginger but this time it's in honour of my friends kittens called Trevor and Boris. They are the most adorable kittens ever and share their home with two dogs..Harvey and Roxy and from what I've seen in the photos it's the kittens that rule the roost. My Reg could sympathize with them. He knows what it's like to have your bed taken over by little furry The image was stamped with a memento ink pad and coloured with my copics. What makes me laugh about this image is the cats's just the same face that my cats would have if I put a hat on them. The backing paper is from my stash, as is the embellishment. As I've said before always consider what colourways you could use. Pick your favourite cat colour and colour the hat and scarf to fit your favourite christmas colours.

Well it is really blowing a hooley here in the mountains. It has been blowing so hard that it's managed to scare Sprout who flung himself back through the window at full speed. All the others seem to have found themselves a warm spot and have settled in for the day. I can't blame them. Today is my special day..I decided at the beginning of the week as a present to myself I would spend this afternoon glittering and that's just what I intend to do.Goodness help anyone who visits later..they expect to leave was such a relief after the visit yesterday was over. I get so on edge when they visit..I don't know why.. I know that they understand my way of looking at life and my disability but as I see it..that's their problem. The way I look at and deal with things is what has got me through so many years and I don't see that I should have to change for anyone.

The coffee is calling and then it's all out glittering. I hope that the weather is being kinder to you wherever you are. Just remember bad weather is the perfect excuse to stay in and So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
