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.

Decoupage Delights....Pansies

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful Decoupage Delights.I must be going through a pansy phase at the moment..I did pansies last week and yet here I am again with some more. They do make me what better reason. This image is from the Fancy Floral cdrom from Decoupage Delights. I always look for slightly different ways to use the images and for this one I matted the decoupaged image onto some mirri and then onto the base card. For the card base I matted the purple and the lilac card with some more mirri and edged with some peeloffs. I finally added a bow.

Yet again I am typing with a cat sat on my wrist. I think that Raven has been voted in as dedicated comfort cat for this week. After I lost Henry it was if the cats had had a vote and decided that I needed a comfort cat and Milky stepped up in place. For the following 6 months..if I was sat down..she was on my knee...if I went to bed...she came with me..and if I was anywhere in the cottage..she was by my side. And now Raven is doing the same. The kittens are galloping around and causing chaos wherever they go.

I had a visitor last night..a friend that had been visiting family in Ireland. I was so treated..she bought me some fantastic chocolates back and a present from her sister, who is also a friend. She had sent me a fairy..A Galway Fairy no less. She is fantastic with crazy pink and purple hair.It was made by Away with the fairies..I think that they may be on facebook. She has arrived with an adoption certificate and feeding instructions..petals, sequins and glitter. She is totally crazy and just perfect for me.Oh and I forgot to add..she also has a pet owl. The kittens would love to get their sticky little paws on the fairy but if I have anything to say on that matter..they won't.

Well the coffee is calling..again. I spoke to a friend on the phone last night and he had been reading the blog. He asked if I was really a coffee addict and I had to admit..I am. Some days I must just be fuelled on the caffeine. Life looks normal to me with the caffeine flowing. I want to hide if I don't have I have to admit to running out a couple of weeks ago and goodness me ..did I have the headache to end all. I was never so relieved when my friend bought me some. The headache just left and I was back on track I hold my hands up and admit that yes I am definitely an Better that than some of the other things out there. So until tomorrow..take care..have a happy crafting.
