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.

Loving the bunnies

Todays card is yet another from the wonderful Margaret Tarrant paper pad from Joanna Sheen. It must be the most used thing in this years christmas crafting. I think that I'm now on my 5th pad and love it as much as when I first started crafting with it. The backing paper is from my stash. The image itself is decoupaged and I've added some die cut decoration. The greeting is also from the pad. There is something so very gentle about the image...nostalgic and magical.

Well I've had a lovely day today. First I had a visit from my friend Dotty. We had a good natter, a good laugh and put the world to right. She has a darling little dog called Seren, who has previously visited me with Dottys Mum and Dad. Seren I think is a papillon ..I know that I've spelt that wrong..but they are called the butterfly dog because of their ears. Seren is just so pretty and despite all her fur is very light. We were laughing because weight wise she's so much lighter than Jeffrey. Yes he finally came back after the angel incident and so far seems to be behaving...for the moment. My other news is that Pinkie is now home..thank goodness. All the trips we have taken to the spot where she had been seen..poor Reg walked to the spot in the hope that she would recognise his scent and come home..and she finally did. As most of you know Pinkie is a very vocal cat and has not shut up since she came home. I've put her in a pen for the that she can recover from her adventures and get fed up a little bit. Dotty helped me to get the pen set up and I have given her, her favourite blanket. At this very moment she is curled up in her blanket,talking away to me. I've had massive cuddles from her and am so happy the little madam is back.

The weather here has turned really must be getting to vest I know that last night I did wonder whether I should get my winter socks out but by then I was warm and cosy and to be honest was too lazy to move.I've got so much work to do doing a christmas fair next week and I have nothing so far. It will be a week of frantic crafting I But I've always said that I work better under I think that I will be putting this to the test.

Well my friend the sparkie has just made me a lovely smelling cup of as I need a caffeine hit..I shall be heading in the direction of that brew. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting

  1. Lovely card-very traditional. Live hearing your tales of your pets. It's been a lovely day here-cleared some leaves & moved all the large pots into the greenhouse. Got more Christmas cards to make ready for the Craft Fair next Sunday.
