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.

Sassy Stacey

Todays card is a design team make for the fabulous team at Jiggery Makery. The card features the devine Stacey who is available to buy as a digi from Jiggery Makery. I had such a time trying to photograph this card because I had decided to cover the card with a piece of black mirri, but I was pleased with effect. I coloured Stacey using a variety of pens. For her hair,and skin I used my copics.For her underwear I used my copics as a base, then went over the light pink with a white glaze pen to look like lace. The edging on the jacket, I used a glitter glaze pen. I have not put a greeting on the card yet because a lady has ordered it and the intended message is a little private. That is really the great thing using an image such as this is the fact that you can make it as personal as you want.

Today is definitely a stay at home day. The mists have come down and we are back in Brigadoon. All the cats have stayed in. Tank and Sprout have retired to bed, Nicademus and Jeffrey have taken over the couch..and Pinkie is in the cupboard. They are all so funny when they take themselves off to their own funny little places. You can give them all the cat beds in the world and they will still find a special place and take up residence there...whether you like it or

There is a lot of stuff going on here at the moment. The Virgo man has decided that he is going to build me a cat duplex for Twinkle and Icabod. It will be twice the size and have an upstairs for them. To find the space for this 'Love Shack' I will be moving the parlour around. I'm really looking forward to it. When it's all done and in it's new place, I will post some pictures. It does mean that when the duplex is in it's new place, I will have easier access to my shelves and there will bemore seating in the parlour. The only down side is that I will have no excuse for not sorting all my paper out and that may take all

Well the coffee is calling and I'd better sort myself out and get down to some paper Thankyou all so much for all the kindness and support that you all have shown at this difficult time. For those of you who are also finding this a difficult time, please know that my thoughts are with you. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
