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....Let's keep cosy

This card is a design team make for the wonderful company of Jiggery Makery. The owner of the company and the very talented artist Adele has a fabulous knack of designing wonderful ladies. They always manage to convey an attitude of their own and always have the type of figure I have never had. I think that is why I so enjoy working with them. With the weather being as it is..this seemed to be the ideal digi . I am using this card for a friend whose birthday always suffers with bad weather...I thought that this digi..looking both glamorous and cosy would be perfect.

I hope that you will pop over to the Jiggery Makery facebook page and take a look at all the creations made by the other members of the design team. They, as always are a wonderful source of inspiration.

Those of you that have followed this blog since the beginning will know that this time of year is very difficult for me. After losing Henry..this time of year brings it all back. I miss him every day and still find it so hard to imagine my life ahead with him. Some light has left my life and this time of year seems to be even darker. Last week I had a really bad friend Virgo man passed away suddenly and I'm still finding it really hard to deal with. He had a special place in my heart and my life and yet again I must come to terms with it all. His funeral is next week and is going to be on the same date as Henry's was. I have to believe that they will be together and that there is a point to everything.but I just don't know what it is..perhaps we are not meant to. So if I'm a bit quiet for a couple of will know why.

Well the coffee is calling again..I think sometimes it's only the caffeine that keeps me The weather here is very raw..frosts and cold winds..the perfect time for crafting though. I have a pile of colouring to get on with..hopefully it keeps me quiet. So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
