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.

Missy and the mistletoe

Todays creation is a design team make for the fabulous team over at Jiggery Makery. I hope that you will pop over to the blog..there have  been some stunning creations make by the other ladies. Well worth a look and a great source of inspiration. I have made a christmas memo board and thought that it would be fun to make the other half know what he has to do to ensure a good What gave me the idea was the fact that I have seen lots of different signs saying how many sleeps until christmas..Henry had one when he was little..and I thought why should the kids have all the fun. So I decided to make Missy my kiss request I printed Missy onto some thick card, coloured her with my copics and then glittered all of her outfit. I managed to scare most of the neighbours with my glittering good looks much as I've tried to remove the glitter from my face..I'm still twinkling. I've also used some of my diecuts to embellish the board. I just thought that this would provide a little laugh  wherever you decided to put it. You could of course make the board say whatever you wanted to...a list of what you'd really like for christmas ( no new ironing board or just use it as a memo board for shopping things that you need for the big day. Either way it would sit on your side and look festive.

I've been out on a trek today. Well I wasn't on my own..I did have Reg and Tankie with My friend (the PA) had noticed Pinkie lurking by the dump. She has been out for a few weeks now as you know and now that it's turning colder I must get her in. Well the dump is down the lane and round the corner and it involves a steep downhill. I thought that if I could get within shouting distance she may come..but she didn't. At least I know that she is well and just scared. I have faith that she will be home this week. Bless her..I think that she has just gone further than she normally would, got scared and didn't know what to do. I just need to get her home. Please keep your fingers crossed for me. But now here's a treat for you...

Yesterday I spoke of the ginger kittens Trevor and Boris, and Harvey and Roxy. Well here they are. Harvey is the golden coloured dog..he is huge but has the most amazing cheeks for fussing. They all look so well behaved here..not like my tribe. When Henry was little he knew all the animals in the village...he may not know what the people were called but you could be sure that he knew what the animals were

Well the coffee is calling and I've still got lots of glittering to do. I'm aiming to start unpacking the kitchen this's the weather to put the slow cooker on I think. So until tomorrow take care and happy crafting
