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.....Christmas Thoughts

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful company of JB-Crafting Supplies. This card was made using the wonderful paper pad featuring the art work of Margaret Tarrent, brought to us crafters by Joanna Sheen. I absolutely adore these images as they remind me of books that I loved as a child. And what a wonderful time to bring back memories of childhood days. This image of the girl cuddling the bunny is so evocative of days past.

I'm feeling worn out already today. The little kittens are driving me to I cannot help but smile at their antics. Today, as soon as I put my legs up..they all invaded and settled down on my legs and all went to sleep. The only problem was Jeffrey...the poor boy. He had already settle down on my legs and then suddenly his space was invaded by 4 perky little kittens. Amazingly he let them all cuddle up on top of him and for half an hour peace At the moment all the kittens have all cuddled up with Flossie..but I know that it won't last for long..within the hour it will be playtime again.

It is cold here in the mountains today. All the cats were shocked when we had snow at the weekend. I have never seen furry bodies come home as quickly as they did when the snow began. They have all found their own spaces in which to settle down..unfortunately Nicademus has decided that the airing cupboard is the best place in the world. And he's not for

Well the coffee is calling and my need for caffeine is huge. I'm trying to think what to do for dinner this evening. We has a roast lamb dinner last night and I'm thinking that if there is enough left..I may make another. If there is not enough to do a dinner..I may make a meat and potato is a recipe of my Grandmother and it makes a little meat go a long way. And all my friends know that I specialise in spot the meat So until next time...take care and happy crafting.
