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.

JB-Crafting Supplies...Flying Frog

After all I don't want to go soft in my old

I have been thinking today,just how lucky I am to work in the crafting world. Yes I'm on a number of design teams but each is so different with what I create and I really get to stretch my creativity in lots of different ways. And I have to say that I get to work with an amazing amount of super talented crafters...what more could a woman want. I am a great believer in counting your blessings and this has to be one...I also say that my cats are another..but you have to wonder when they're flying round your
