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.

Jiggery Makery and Children in Need

Todays card is made using one of the sassy ladies from Jiggery Makery. If you pop over to the Jiggery Makery Page you will find details of how to buy the Missy digital design and the proceeds will be going to Children in Need. What a great way to support a great cause and be able to make great cards at the same time. To make this card I have coloured Missy with my copics and have glittered her dress. I decided to do her in green so that she becomes the ultimate christmas elf!! I covered the card with matching green glitter paper and added a plain white centre which I have edged with christmas ribbons. It is a very simple card but has an impact. Sometimes when you are making christmas cards..that's what you want..a card that is simple to put together that makes a great impact. And Missy sure makes an impact. I always think that was the reason I was given neither looks or a figure...I would have just caused too much So I live the glamorous life through my, clothes and all sorts of accessories (handbags, phones and charms). And this way I get to enjoy the finer things in life..without the But I would really love one day to have a pair of glamorous shoes..but that won't be happening anytime soon with the size my foot has now

It is my opinion that my good foot has now turned into a mutant I had the nurse today to look at it again. It is a small wound but doesn't look like healing anytime soon. She is going to come again on Tuesday. I've been told to keep it up to help it go down. Well that's ok but I have visitors coming tomorrow and the carpet isn't going to hoover itself. I'm going to sort it out later and then I'll put it up. I think that 1 hour of speed cleaning will do the job and then I've got the rest of the day to rest. My builder is coming later to fit my new worktop so next week will see me unpacking all my machinery. I just can't wait. At least I can use the wheelchair in the kitchen it really be speed baking once it's all

My other news is that I'm half way through dying my hair. At the moment I'm a bleached blonde...very nearly white in Now brace's going green later. A darkish green for the festive season.I always promised Henry that I would grow old disgracefully and dying my hair is about the best I can do at the moment. I have some amazing green and orange earrings which I bought form Annettes Beads. She has a facebook page and wow, she has some amazing stock. She has made me some beautiful earrings and bracelets..if you get a chance pop over and have a look.I think my earrings will go so well with my hair. You will definitely see me

The weather here in the mountains today is a day that see's all the cats inside. We are having sideways looks all misty out there because the rain is coming in sheets. Jeffrey is lay on my legs like a living hot water bottle. He's not having much fun though..Raven thinks that it is her place and she is on my knees trying to push him off. Milky and Tankie are on their couch cushions and Reg is in his good mood bed. We have decided that he has a good mood and bad mood The biggest dog bed has him in it most of the time..but we have noticed that if he gets told off for something..he takes himself off to the smaller dog bed.. I don't know what bed he will be in tomorrow when Doodles the dog comes to visit. We shall have to wait and watch the

Well the coffee is calling and after the caffeine comes the hoovering and dusting. Keep your fingers crossed that it all goes well. Henry would have laughed so much seeing me with a duster in my hands. He always said that my hands were made for crafting and not cleaning. Well today they will have to do both..just hoping my legs let me. So until tomorrow take care and happy crafting.
