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...The Boys Dream

Here I am again. This card is a design team make for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights. This image is from the next cd to be released and is a special Halloween treat for you all. If you pop over to the Decoupage Delights facebook page on Friday..this image and backing paper will be available as a free download. I was lucky enough to pick which image I would like to be the free download and this was it. I just love this image of the boy playing with his train and know so many gentlemen that this would be perfect for. I have talked to so many who still talk about the trains that they had as a boy. A number still have model trains and it is always so hard to find a card for them. I love the fact that it is something different from the football, boats or beer cards that the card companies think is the only things that men like. So please remember to pop over to Decoupage Delights on Friday and get your free download.

I've just bee watching the Hochanda craft channel. I was watching because Barbara Grey from Clarity Stamps was on and I just feel inspired by the lady. I have used her stamps for many years and they are as good now as when I first bought them...which is more than I can say for a lot of them. I seem to be really enjoying my stamping lately..I do go through phases..bu t that's what I love about crafting..I don't have to do the same thing all the time. I particularly love mixing lots of different techniques together.

It's getting to the time when I usually have to think about what to cook for dinner..but I already know today. We are having a chicken and vegetable pie with roast potatoes. I made it yesterday, so it's a really easy dinner for me tonight. As most of you know I love a bargain and this weeks chicken certainly was one. We had a roast chicken dinner first and then I stripped the meat from the bone  Half I put into the freezer for another night and I then I made a chicken and vegetable pie, which exceeded my expectations so half is left for tonight. I also froze the chicken bones, so that when I have another chicken, I will have enough to make some stock. So we will have had 5 nights meals and 1 soup all from one chicken. And there was plenty of meat in the how was that for a So all I have to do tonight is roast the potatoes and then I can get back to work. I have a lot of colouring to do tonight and at least I will be

Well the coffee is calling again and then it will be time to feed Flossie again. I'm giving her extra because of the kittens. She is asleep at the moment..probably thinking to herself..thank goodness they're all So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
