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...It's Eastertime

Here I am again bringing you another design for today. This card is a design team make for the wonderful Jiggery Makery. I just love this image of an Easter bunny. How I wish I had a set of legs like This was designed by the ultra talented Adele and what a great easter card she makes. I really enjoyed making this card. My first decision was how to colour her. I could have gone down the classic playboy bunny of black and white, but I was drawn towards using the pastel shades, which I did. I have used my promarkers to colour her and then added her to a green background paper from my stash, which had been mounted onto some purple card. I then finally added an easter greeting. If you get the chance why not pop over to Jiggery Makery and take a look at all the wonderful digital images that are available to buy.

I can tell that the easter holidays have begun by the number of cars in the village. Easter is the first holiday that really grabs the people who own holiday cottages. They are arriving in droves...last night was punctured by the slamming of car doors.I love the way they have no consideration for any one who lives here and may have gone to bed. They arrive at 1 and 2 a.m...carry on conversations at full voice and see just how many times that they can slam their car doors as they empty their cars. But of course the peasants that live here should be thankful for their gracing the village with their When I take Reg out for a wheel and the cats follow us, they manage to look at me as if I'm a freak of nature. It makes me laugh so much as they stand there with their mouths open as me, my wheelchair, Reg and 8 cats go for a walk. What really does make me laugh out loud is the tutting that they do when they have to slow down and wait as my cats take their own sweet time. The worst experience I have ever had was being patted on the head and told I was so brave. I felt like taking the wheelchair and running her

Well the coffee is calling again and then I'll have to head off and prepare dinner. We are having stew again but with roast potatoes. Tomorrow, I have decided that I'm going to do fried chicken with chips and coleslaw. I shall have to hunt in the freezer to see what we can have on Sunday. I hope that you all really have a great bank holiday and that you all make some happy memories. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
