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.

Decoupage Delights...An Upcoming Project.

Well I'm back One of the things that I asked lots of times is how I come up with all the different ideas for cards. It's really hard to answer, so I thought that the easiest way to explain is to show you. All the images that I'm going to use are from the wonderful cdrom..Vintage Christmas 1 and 2....brought to us crafters by the fabulous Decoupage Delights.

I love these three different images for very different reasons...they are all very different but come from the same amazing cdrom. The top one I love because of the cute dog image...the second because it is a very traditional image which a lot of my customers always ask for and the one below is something that reminds me of Christmas time in my own childhood.

So I have a plan. Next Wednesday I will have made these fabulous images into Christmas cards. That way hopefully you will be able to see where I started to where I end up.

There are so many wonderful images on this cdrom. Even though it's called doesn't mean that you can only make vintage type cards.It would all depend on which way you take it. The middle card, I will definitely keep vintage and classic but I think that I will play around with the others. And you know that the glitter will be making an

I hope that you will pop back next Wednesday so that I can explain my process. I will be back tomorrow with a new design team make for A Step In the Dark. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
