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...Tess invites you

This card is a design team make for the great team over at Jiggery Makery. Here is the best looking witch ever..all ready to party. To make this party invitation I began by colouring Tess with my promarkers. I then cut her out and fixed her to some navy card. I then created borders on each side and added some peeloff shapes..onto which I drew little legs, so that they looked like beetles and spiders..which I thought would be perfect Halloween. I also drew some webs on the borders. I absolutely love the glamorous ladies that Adele over at Jiggery Makery creates and to have a witch that is also glamorous seems so right to me. After all if you were a witch with amazing's only right that you'd make yourself as pretty as possible to lure people in. And because she has such wonderful legs, I also gave her a garter of beetles. I had so much fun creating this invite..why not give it a try. If you get the chance ..pop over to the Jiggery Makery facebook page and take a look at all the other creations that the team have made.

I'm still drinking my coffee and thinking of making dinner. I've decided to make chicken burgers for dinner with chips and coleslaw..all homemade. I've also decided on meals for the weekend as pie tomorrow and a roast chicken dinner for Sunday. I always feel better when I have a It just means that once I know what I'm doing, I can plan my weekend work. And I have so much to do. I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend and that the weather is kind to you. It's gone really cold may be time for the socks. I have a new pair which came all the way from Iceland. My friend Sunshine had a holiday there and bought me these socks back. I think it's time to stop stroking them (they are lovely) and get them on. So until next time...take care and happy crafting.
