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..presenting Rose

Todays card is a design team make for the fabulous Jiggery Makery. I just LOVE this image of the young lady called Rose. As most of you will know by now, I just love working with these designs of Adeles ...the very talented owner of Jiggery Makery. There is something magical that happens with her designs...a certain something that these ladies have, that leaves your options for use wide open. If you get the hance to pop over to the blog or the facebook page..check out the designs of the other members of the design team. We all get to work with the same image but the makes are so different. They are all very talented and provide lots of different styles of inspiration. As I was working with Rose this week, I thought she had the look of a young Marilyn Monroe but fought the urge to make her brown haired or blonde. There is something so happy about Rose..she can't help but to make you smile. A great image for birthdays...for male or female..just find the words suitable for the occasion.
All the Jiggery Makery ladies are available to buy as a's a chance to get some wonderful creations in your digi library, so that you have them to hand.

I know that I have been absent this week, but I have been trying to get myself organised, ready for the next six months of crafting. It's been something that I've been thinking of doing for a while..I just had to have the head space to do it. And I thought that now would be a perfect time...with the inquest approaching. It just means that leading up to and after the inquest..I will be able to craft without having to think too hard..I will just have to look at my calender and notes and do the work. And it does mean that I can do a little extra work and get easing the pressure that I can put on myself. Well that's the plan. I've still got to organise down the side of my chair...the official black hole of I intend to tackle that before dinner tonight.

All the animals except Sprout are fine. Poor Sprout is limping again. It's not a leg problem but a claw problem. Despite trying to keep him in..he got out and decided to take on Hobo again and has pulled one of his claws out. It's all very tender but bless him , he let me clean it all and he is definitely getting better ...thank goodness. He does appreciate the fact though that if you are a poorly cat you get priority access to the top of the bed. In fact he's there before me..waiting patiently for some human fuss.

Well the coffee is calling and then I will be able to admire the carpets. Virgo man is here as I write,hoovering for me. He does the hoovering and puts the rubbish out for is a great help. I'm having so much bother with my good make some things really hard. But it can only get Now,after all this organisation I should be back on until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.

  1. Great card today. I was getting a bit concerned when there were no posts all week from you-glad you are ok. Getting organised sounds like a good idea so you can get your head down + get crafting as a distraction.
