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.

I decided to give her some black leggings and then decided to give her some polka dot Christmas because I can admit to owning some pretty festive socks myself. And finally I added the sentiment and the greeting. I have some friends that look fabulous no matter what they're wearing...they could even make a binbag look I don't include myself in that matter what I wear, I still look as if I've been dragged through a hedge
Well the coffee is calling and I've some new designs to play with. My first job will be to catch up on all my's a design team job and I love seeing all the creations. I hope you will pop over to Jiggery Makery and take a look at the Christmas in July promotion. I have to admit that I simply love the penguins..Percy and Lilly. Anyway..until next time..take care and happy crafting
