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....Sailors mean fun

 Todays cards are a design team make for the fantastic Jiggery Makery. Well they were..over a year ago. Adele asked me to work with this image again and I was so pleased because I have always loved it. And then I had a thought to look through my records and see what I did last time ...and here they were. I then thought to share them with you again because I like these as much as I did last time. I think this proves just how timeless Adeles designs are. They look as fresh today as they did a year ago and will do in the years to come. In the craft business, I see so many trends come and go and have to admit to not following the latest fashions. I love to work with classic images and to have these images in my I know it's always to hand should an idea pop up. I know a lot of men who are really into sailing, pirate imagery and anything water related so this girl is fantastic to use for any of them.

Both of these images have been coloured with my copics. The anchors have been painted with my H2Os. The background paper is also designed by the ever talented Adele and I'm sure will be available to buy. It works so well with the naval theme, but would work so well with other crafting themes. If you get the chance..why not pop over to the Jiggery Makery page and take a look at all the wonderful designs.

I couldn't blog yesterday because of the wonderful BT. Since I got up yesterday the broad band was flashing on and off all day. It wouldn't let me load anything and if I had been within 20 foot of a BT executive he would have heard me It always gets to the point where the computer is lucky that it's not thrown out of the biggest cat flap in the world.

I've had a bad today and I'm not feeling too good. I have now been given a date for the inquest and am trying to get my head may take a while....but I'll get there.

Well the coffee is calling and I think a good dose of coffee will do me good. At least I know what I'm cooking's going to be chicken curry and maybe chips. I will have to try and give a thought for what to cook over the weekend..something easy tomorrow and perhaps a Sunday dinner. When I've had a coffee perhaps my head will be clearer. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
