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.

Decoupage Delights

Todays cards are the first for my new design team..Decoupage Delights. I am so excited with the possibilities that are coming my way. I just adore decoupage and vintage so this is a perfect team for me. I just love the images that they have and there are some great new cds on their way. I know that fashion and florals are on the way...and most of you know, I can get very For the first two cards (from the forthcoming fashion cd), I have used the same image but changed the backing paper and the mount card. It really shows what a difference it can make.Both images are decoupaged and were printed out on the same sheet. When I was first looking at the backing paper, I couldn't decide which I liked best so I decided to use

I often tell people to try different colour backgrounds against the image that they intend to use and try picking out different colours from the can be very surprising what different effects can be created. On the first card, I mounted the image and the backing paper onto some silver holographic mirri and the second onto some pink mirri.

If you get a chance, please pop over to the Decoupage Delights facebook page and have a look at the wonderful cdroms that are available now and to get insights to the new cds on their way. There are often free sheets to download as an added bonus. The prices of the cds are amazing and well worth every penny. Wednesdays will now be Decoupage Delight day on the I will get to share with you many more cards. The card below is another that I made using the Fancy Floral cdrom from the current range. Sometimes when I'm working, I just want a piece of decoupage to add to another card and there are so many floral images on this cd, I will always be able to find a flower just right for the person that I'm making the card for.

It's the day that the weatherman said that we would have snow. And I have to say that it's trying. The wind is bitter and we keep getting hit by snow and hail...and it's tonight that it's supposed to be at it's worst. Luckily for me, tesco delivered all the cat food this morning. He was laughing that there was a lot of food, both tinned and dry and I said I wouldn't want to live here without the moment they are all sleeping the sleep of happy doubt that will only last until I move and then the starving hoards will return. It does make me laugh just how much they all try it on. So as far as I'm concerned the weather can now do it's least the cats and Reg will be fine. There is some snow but not a lot.I shall wait with anticipation to see what

By where I sit and craft is a small recess in the parlour...I have my chair there and can put my legs up while I craft. I am surrounded by shelves so that I can reach a lot of crafting goodies with out moving. The printer is also by my side. As you can imagine..and as a lot of you know, there is a huge amount of paper there. Well Jeffrey has somehow managed to make himself a hole on one of the shelves...this involved kicking a lot of paper out and getting a large cat bottom in. So now there he sits watching my every move. On the next shelf up..there sits Pinky keeping an eye on I remember when I first had these shelves made..Sparkle did it and it's an amazingly strong set of shelves (as he knows it needs to and before I even had the chance to put even a pencil on there....there were 3 cats already deciding which space would be best for

Well the coffee is I'll be sending the vibe out that Sparkle needs to arrive. He does make the best cup of coffee in the world. When I make a brew or anyone else makes me one, it is never as good as Sparkle makes. I can't answer why this is the case, but that's how it is. It's the same with my friend Sunshine..she makes the absolute best brownies in the world.They are so good that I have to put them out of reach so I can only have a couple at a time. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
