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..proudly presents Veronica

How I wish that I had a figure like this...I can but This stunning lady is Veronica and is a new digi available from Jiggery Makery. She is my design team make and I loved every minute of making this card. I first coloured the image using my copics and then glittered the dress and cut it out. Onto the card, I mounted some black mirri and some black mirri with a silver decoration. I did a very dark background to show off the dress. I have edged the middle panel with a glittered peeloff. Why not pop over to Jiggery Makery and take a look at all the other fabulous ladies.

I can't believe that the weekends here seems to have come round again so quickly. The weather here is a normal village day...raining a bit, wind blowing a bit and quite cold. The mists are trying to make their way down the mountains. Here in the village the council in their usual wisdom have replaced the street lights and goodness me they are a waste of time and money. Personally I wouldn't mind if there were no lights but I can accept that there a lot of people that need them. Well the council seems to have tried to make everyone happy by putting in new lights that don't give out any The only thing that they actually light is the base of themselves. They throw out no's just so bad..I don't know what the council thinks it's playing And the thing that drives everyone crazy is the fact that it seems as if a car is coming the other way with this pathetic blue light. I've been told that they're better for the environment, but I don't know how that works when they don't let out any light to see by, but cause problems for the cars that enter the village. Mind you there are lots of things of things that the council do that make no sense and just waste a lot of money.

All the cats have been very quiet lately,the weather being as cold as it is, they just settle into their own little places and don't move until the chance of food I hope it won't be long until we can all trip out again...goodness help everyone. Reg, of course goes out everyday, but I have been keeping the cats in because of the bad weather. It's an easy dinner tonight..last night we had steak and mushroom pie (I'd slow cooked the beef with onions and mushrooms) and there is enough left for tonight. So I'm just going to make chips to go with the pie and probably green beans. So a lazy night really. Tomorrow is going to be fish pie. Any one would think that I was I've lots of work to do this weekend, so I'm looking forward to some serious

Well the coffee is calling and Sparkle has just arrived. He must sense when my caffeine levels are low..bless him. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.

  1. Hi Genny I like the image you have used, great job. It's nice reading about your pets. My 12 year old Greyhound passed away last month and I miss him so much.
    I believe we are team mates on Rosey Hearts.
