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...The Fashion Model

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights. This card is one from the up coming new cd..Vintage Fashions. I can't wait for it to's due in the next few months and should earn a place on your shelf of cdroms. I have to admit to having 5 shelves dedicated to my cdroms..but then I'm lucky enough to work with them every day. If you would like a chance to win a copy of their wonderful Fancy Floral cdrom, then just pop on over to their facebook page and join in the fun..the competition runs until the Thursday 19th there's plenty of time to have a look.

The weather man has been right yet's raining. So the perfect day for crafting...which I could do when I've finished sorting my crafting stash. I've managed to clear half the couch..half to go. The only trouble is as I'm sorting, I spot lots of things and my head becomes full of ideas. I really want to use more embossing powders and gold leaf..I will have room once I've finshed I'll just have to plod on. The cats are all in and for a change have all settled..not knocking my piles of sorting like they did last night. One of my friends came over to take Reg for his night time walk and noticed that a candlestick had been knocked over..he picked it up and Jeffrey immediately knocked it pick it up again and Jeff did the same again and this went on until my friend just had to give said how on earth do you put up with it..I said that's only one of should be here on a full moon when they all go a little Somedays only a mother could love them. As I'm typing Twinkle is on a wild one...she is running round and round the duplex and Icabod is looking at her as if she's crazy..and the truth is..she is.

I had wonderful news today which I will share with you as soon as everything is organised. I'm just going to say that I've been doing wheelies in my wheelchair...I'm so happy. I've also got a printers block arriving some time in the next week. I ordered it before christmas to turn into an art piece. My idea is that Henry had lots of little things that he loved..keyrings,small gaming figures,disney figures and lots of other tiny things..well my aim is to make a backing paper for each little square which includes a memory and put one of his little figures in..then hopefully it will be a representation of his childhood. A friend has said that he will be able to fix a piece of perspex for the front..then everything will be protected and be secure. It's a project for the next couple of years but it's something that I'm looking forward to. I do find that since henry passed, I need projects to fill the empty hours and this will be one of those. I will keep you all updated.

Well the coffee is calling and the couch needs sorting. For dinner tonight, I'm doing a chicken satay with fried rice. Keep your fingers's a new recipe for me. I'll let you know how it all turns out..if it all goes will end up being beans on So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
