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.

Jiggery Makery...presents Pamela

Today's card is a design team make for the fabulous Jiggery Makery. This design is called Pamela and is available to buy as a digi from Adele at Jiggery Makery. Why not pop over and take a look at all the other fantastic digis that are available. The rest of the team have created some gorgeous projects and are also well worth a look. To make this card I coloured Pamela with my copics and glittered various areas with my glitter. I have had the stamp in my stash for a while and have always wanted to use it...when I saw Pamela..I thought that it would be perfect. I saw Pamela as an independent lady, who with her blue hair has created her own style. It would be a perfect card for a good friend.

I feel a bit like a hamster on a wheel today. I have still lots to do, hopefully it will be all finished by the weekend. All orders have now left the's a lot of design team work to finish for the next week. I love being on the design teams that I work for as they are all very different to each other and I get to work with lots of different crafty items. I just need to get back on top of it all so that I can do a number of things that I want to in the house.In the next month or so I'm hoping to start the dining room and to rediscover the studio. Those two areas will take me  a while but am quite looking forward  to starting. The animals will no doubt hate all the they always do. I'm hoping for the dining room to become a cat free zone when I'm not in there. I'm also hoping to get the wood burning stove working again....such plans.

Today, my meat order arrived and now the freezer is full. Chicken breasts, stewing steak, minced steak, steaks and steak burgers...all great value. There should be enough there for at least 2 months if not more. I am a bit of a spot the meat in the stew woman...I just love vegetables and tend to fill the slow cooker with I'm hoping to have a baking day sometime next week and make some meatballs for the freezer...I thought that if I did a tray of them, then we could have them for dinner one night and pack the rest into the freezer for quick dinners. You would have laughed if you'd have seen the cats when the meat arrived...they were all sat around the box and were ever hopeful that I may drop Their distress was palpable when I'd put it all was so bad..the cat biscuits had to be topped up. What makes me laugh is when they do the 'we're starving' faces..if you could only see the fat little would laugh

Well the coffee is calling  and I'd better think about doing dinner. The weather here doesn't know what to do with seems very miserable today. Hopefully it will pick up over the weekend. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
