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.

Left of Center.......New Challenge

Today's canvas is a design team make for the wonderful team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the next week. The theme for this week is big eyes. You can of course go LOC..all details of that can be found on the LOC blog. I do hope that you will pop over to the blog and take a look at all the creations that the other members of the team have made. There is some amazing work and I always find the ladies to be a constant source of inspiration. And why not join in the fun yourself?
We are so lucky to have been sponsored by the fantastic team over at The Oddball Art Stamps. If you are looking for something a little different, it's the perfect place to visit. There are fabulous images and of course I just had to choose the coffee fixation one.You all know me and my caffeine

I woke up this morning to snow...not a lot but the world was white.It has shocked the cats. It always makes me laugh to watch the cats trying to get from A to B without their paws touching the snow. At the moment it's raining..nothing new there but it's still cold. As I glance around the parlour, all I can see is sleeping little furry bodies. It's so quiet...I just wish they were this quiet in the middle of the night. For the third night in a row, I've been found sitting in a chair having a warm drink, waiting for the tabby terrorists to lie down and shut It seems to me that 3.30 a.m. is their best time to play..but goodness me ...the noise they make. You would think that a herd of beasts were charging around. I do indulge my cats a the middle of the night is not the time for play. My poor legs feel as if they've done a marathon...they need a good sleep.

Well the coffee is calling and Sparkle has just the kettle will be going on. I've made my list of work for the weekend..I'm hoping that the sewing machine will be coming out. And I'm hoping to get some more sorting out glitters are all over the place..I'm hoping to make some sort of glitter station..a place where they can all live...the dry, the wet, the stickles..all in one place. My friend Pretty cannot believe just how many colours I answer..well you never
I will be back later with another design team until then...take care and happy crafting.
