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......A Time to Dream

Todays creation is a design team make for the wonderful JB-Crafting Supplies. I have made this plaque for my bedroom wall. I have seen so many items to buy that are similar and I thought to myself that I could do Everything that I have used is available to buy from Julie at JB-Crafting Supplies.
I began by painting the mdf plaque with a mixture of pale pink and pale lilac acrylic paint. I then stamped some cherry blossom branches and single flowers from a Sheena Douglas stamp. I coloured them all with my promarkers and then cut them out. I attached the flowers to the edge of the plaque alongside some jewels and pearls. All I have left to do is attach a ribbon to hang it and I'm going to varnish it with some spray varnish.
As I said I intend to hang it in my bedroom...but that won't be until I've done what I want to... to the room. I have managed to break the at the moment I'm sleeping the wrong way round until I can afford a new bed base. There is no point to repair it as it has been repaired so many times already, it has come to the point of there would be more repairs than I am having a skip delivered hopefully soon and intend to put the old bed into it. When the bed has moved, I want to paint the corner where the bed is, whilst there is nothing in the way. Hopefully at the same time I will be getting help to move the dressing table and wardrobe around. The problem is that the cats are using the dressing table as a spring board to get into the loft. Not too bad you may think but oh no...not with my furry They jump up usually taking out some of my jewellery and some make up. Curses fly from my mouth but that's not the end. When they want to come down from the loft...there goes the rest of my girly bits and pieces. I have all my nail varnishes and rings in large glass bowls and so far the darling cats have managed to break 3 different bowls.Enough is more are my rings going to sprinkle the floor. The worst thing is that I can't bend over without becoming trying to pick things up is a trial on it's own. And of course the rings fly everywhere...under the bedding chest, the bed and under the dressing does drive me mad. So I intend for the wardrobe to change places with the dressing table and then they can jump up onto the top of that without anything flying...I live in
Well the coffee is calling and I've got some images to colour. I'm trying to get ahead this week as I want to go back into the studio and do some more sorting soon. If I can get the next couple of weeks work done, then I'll be able to sort out to my hearts content. All the cats are lay on the studio roof at the moment because even though it's cloudy, it's fine. As I've said before, they all blame me when it's raining. I'm either sat surrounded by grumpy cats or getting wet by grumpy cats shaking off the rain onto until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
