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...Vintage Ladies

Todays cards are design team makes for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights. As most of you know I just love vintage fashions. I think it is because I just love the wonderful dresses and know that I never get to wear any thing like this. Both of these designs will be appearing on the forthcoming Vintage Fashion cdrom. On both of these cards feature the ladies, which have both been decoupaged. I love the background paper on the card is so different to a lot that I have seen.

The weather here today is lovely and calm. The wind has calmed down and I can see the mountains...a good day all in all. Jeffrey is lay out on the studio roof...quite happy in his own little world. In fact all the animals are quiet today...thank goodness. Last night it was if they all had the wind up their tales, running up and down, chasing each other, Milky in particular was so funny. She is a right little chubby madam and spent last night chasing everyone. Poor Sprout got rolled over many times and ended up at the top of the stairs looking as if he didn't know what to do

I'm so looking forward to the pile of work that I have waiting. Lots of strange ideas on where I want to do. I'm thinking of using my pencils..something that I haven't used in a while. Sometimes it's just down to the amount of time that I have to work on a project, but at the moment I'm slightly ahead of myself, which will give me a longer time to work on the projects at hand. I'm hoping to work on a canvas...a sort of mixed media approach..I will share it with you if I like it when it's finished. You can never know how things will turn just have to hope.

Well the coffee is calling and so are my pencils. I would just like to thank all of you who have been in touch while I was feeling a little down and after I fell. I have spoken to the nurse today and have some new dressings coming for my leg...which will hopefully help with the pain. Sometimes I wish that I could just have a break from the pain but I just have to get on with it. It's the time for big girl pants again..I've been here before and got through..but thankyou so much for taking the time to contact me. So until tomorrow take care and happy crafting.
