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

Todays creations are design team makes for the wonderful team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge has just begun using the theme of 'Real or Faux Stitching.The challenge will run for the next week. The card above is from one of our sponsors...Star reminds me so much of the artwork that Henry loved. The plaque below is from our other sponsor All Dressed Up.I do hope that you will pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at all the fabulous creations made by the other members of the design team.

As I've said we were lucky to have two sponsors this week. They are both very different in between the two, you would have any crafting need covered.

The sun is shining again here in the mountains but goodness me it's chilly. All is quiet at the moment..everyone is asleep.Yesterday I decided to brush the stairs and Storming Norman helped the whole time. He was one step above me the whole time and managed to cause Everytime I brushed a pile together, he pawed a pile into the air. He had a great time, chasing the brush, rolling around on the step and generally just getting in the way. I'm sure it took twice as long as it should have. The postman was laughing this morning..I was trying to speak to him through the window and Simon thought he would exit the window to the studio language was so bad, the postman laughed all the way to his van. Simon is now lay with his big uncle Jeffrey..just looking as if butter wouldn't melt.
I wonder what you make of the fact that there is now 3 craft channels on the tv. Create and Craft, The Craft Channel and Hochanda. I seem to spend my day flicking between them all. The prices on some never cease to amaze me. And they all's a must It might be but I know a lot of us have only a little money to what we do actually buy has to seem good value for money or something we really need. With my die cuts I think about it for a while..I need to know that it is something that either fits in with what I already have or something that will bring a new look to what I already have. So far this year the only thing I have purchased has been and I'm forever running out of that.
Well the coffee is calling and then I have to sort a problem out. My camera is having a moment. For some reason it is just not reading my card. It's all very well but I've got to photograph some more work..please keep your fingers crossed for me. I could do without that going wrong. So until later...take care and happy crafting.
