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...Remembering a Tangle

For todays design team make I thought that I would revisit one of my favourite projects for Jiggery Makery. This was made using a single flower digi from Adele at Jiggery Makery. As most of you know, I love tangling lots of things and even after quite a while, this has got to be one of my favourites. For this make I enlarged the flower to the size that I wanted and then tangled it and cut it out. I mounted it onto some black glitter card and then onto some plain black. I edged with some silver peeloffs.This is an 8x8 card but of course you can alter the size of the digi to fit whatever size of card you decide to work with

There are fabulous digi designs over at the Jiggery Makery store...why not pop over and take a look. I personally adore the gorgeous ladies and love deciding what colours and embellishments I can add to their dresses. It always reminds me of being a little girl when I would draw a dress and colour it in lots of different ways. There are two new makes also coming this next week. I have reworked 2 of my favourite designs and will be sharing them with you next week.

The sun is shining here and all the cats are out. When it's nice like this, I have to leave the window open all night so they can come back's either that or spend all night getting up to let the wailers And believe me they can make a heck of a

Well the coffee is calling and there is an awful lot of work to do...let's hope the caffeine helps the pens move quicker. Sparkle has just arrived so I don't have to even make it myself...what a treat. So until next time..I hope that you have a wonderful weekend..take care and happy signature
