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.....Orange Flowers

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful JB-Crafting Supplies. I stamped the flower heads using my memento inkpad and coloured them just using 3 colours of promarkers. I then used 2 colours of Stickles glitter glue.I  have really enjoyed playing making this card and have carried on to make other cards using the same idea. I'm also intending to make this in different colourways. If you need any products for your crafting or sewing projects, then please pop over to the JB-Crafting Supplies online shop. And don't forget the facebook page which is updated all the time with new products coming in.

I'm so enjoying crafting's one of the few days that all the cats are asleep and leaving me in peace...goodness only knows just how long it will I managed to start the moving round yet again in the parlour and I've yet to finish. I moved a chest of drawers in to hold some of my stamps and moved round the window. Here in the cottage there is a deep window sill and it gets full of's all my own fault..but now it has all been cleared and my skull collection is now there in place.I am in the process of sorting out all my crafting collection and I have to say that the kittens have been helping. Last night Gannet took off with a bag of my ribbons..I just spotted him racing out of the room with the bag in his mouth. Consequently I have been picking up my ribbons all seems that they all had a fabulous time. I have to admit to cursing them all because the bag was filled with brand new had only arrived at the house on Saturday. I think that I overdid it at the legs are still for today, I'm concentrating on crafting with my legs up on a stool. And then tomorrow I'll be back to it. My list of things to do seems to continue to grow.

I had to laugh at the cats on Saturday. I had just moved the chest of drawers into the parlour and had decided to put a lace cloth on the top..I should have known it would be a problem. The minute I put the cloth on, I turned my back and when I turned round there was 3 cats lying on So rather than leave them to it, I placed an antique tray on top, so that the lace cloth was safe from the furry terrorists. As I'm writing I'm thinking of what still needs to be legs had better improve. I have also managed to start in my new bed is imminent..I can't wait. I'm hoping to be able to move the old bed out and get to painting my bedroom..I already have the's a very dark red. I have some gold sconces which will be going up as well..all my frames are gold as might look a little gypsy I hope when it's finished. My collection of angels is going to be on shelf that surrounds the bed. Plans, plans,plans..there will be a lot of caffeine needed me

Well I spoke of it and now it's needed. The caffeine is calling and I have a couple of projects to finish. So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
