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.

That Oriental Moment

Todays card is one that I have been thinking of making for a while. I did a feature of it on the JB=Crafting Supplies blog last week but thought that I would share it with you all this week.It all started with the background paper which reminded me of a Japanese friends favourite flowers and then I was off. I had in my stash this oriental lady peeloff and decided to use both together. I took the peeloff and stuck it to some white card and then coloured it using my copics. I then cut it out and mounted that onto the card. I then coloured some white paper flowers to match. I am impressed with the way that peeloffs have improved over the fact I'm so taken with this one..I may make another very soon.

What a day today. The wind has raged all night and the rain is lashing down. The mist is sitting low's just like's as if the rest of the world doesn't exist. You can't see the mountains in fact. Other places have had snow but not here. The weather man has promised snow so many times but we've had nothing much here at all.

The weather has been so bad again that all the cats are in..again. They have all disappeared to their favourite places and no doubt, I won't see them until their tummies tell them that they need more The only one that is in the parlour is Jeffrey..who is of course on top of Reg in the dog

Well the coffee is calling and Sparkle has just arrived and put the kettle on. How's that for timing. For tonights dinner we have decided to have fried rice. Tomorrow is going to be spot the meat for a couple of days..first day with pasta and with potatoes on the next. I'm hoping to spend the afternoon unpacking some crates..and brae yourself...I'm even thinking of cleaning the cooker.I can't even believe that I've said that..but it has been pecking my head for the past couple of days...perhaps I need a So I'm off to inhale the caffeine moment and then do some more work. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.

  1. Lovely card today, I often fall back on peel-offs. Usually for the wording on cards. Sorry I've not commented recently but I've been a bit distracted-will email you reasons why.

    Have fun cleaning the cooker!
