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.

Winter Journal

Todays creation is a winter journal. It is a design team make for the wonderful team over at the Crafting Musketeers Challenge Blog. This months sponser is Delicious Doodles. The image that I've used on the cover of the journal is one of their digis. As a team we were given a range of their designs to work with and it was so very hard to choose just which one to use. The theme for this months challenge is anything but a card. I would love you to go and look at what the other design team members have created..there is some beautiful work and it's a fabulous source.of inspiration.I used the digi to provide the cover of the journal. As it is a hard backed book, I first painted the cover with acrylics, in various shades of purple and lilacs. For the image, I coloured her with my copics and then glittered her hair, dress and bracelets.I also glittered the snowflake that she is holding...well as you know by now..I just had One of Henrys friends was here the other week and helped me get all my glitters together and I don't think that he could believe just how many colours I had. And all the different types..glitter glue, fine glitter, ultra fine glitter, chunky glitter, tinsel glitter and all the colours of the rainbow. Looking at my collection, I do seem to have a bit of a thing for greens and

Well the building work is continuing. Today it is the sinks turn to be made over. I had the sink made higher than normal when I had it fitted originally and it was never finished.So basically what I had was a double drainer sink unit on a frame. Well today it is all about to change. My builder is going to put a door underneath the sink and an end on the unit...there will no longer be any way that any little cat with nasty intentions can get under there. The big problem you see is that the space under the sink actually goes back about 5 foot due to it also going under the windowsill. So after today I will have a door and also tiles. Tomorrow I will be painting the whole thing white. I do feel that after last week, I should have a pant brush attached permanently to my right the trouble is that the more that I do..the more I think wants doing.

I am being quite firm with myself. There are lots that I could be doing but I'm going to rest my legs today, to give myself a head start tomorrow. They are really hurting today...I don't know why but some days are a lot worse than others. All the cats have had their breakfast, so they're at least giving me a little bit of peace. They all have little spots of strange colours all over them...they just can't help themselves...they're just so

Well the coffee is calling and I've just remembered a card that I have to do. I hope that you're having a good weekend. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
