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....Papercutting

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful JB-Crafting Supplies. The above picture is my first foray into the world of papercutting. The design itself is one from Paper Panda and when I saw it..I just had to do it. I have never had a go before but I think now I may have found a new love. If there is anything you need..please just get in touch with Julie, over at JB-Crafting Supplies. As well as everything craft based, she has the most delicious variety of materials. She holds workshops and the ladies that attend have created the most wonderful items..just take a look on the facebook page and you will see them. As for papercutting..I'm off and running and in the process of designing my own..I will share it with you when I've finished.

Here in the mountains today it's raining on and off. The cats are all playing yo-yos..going in and out between showers. The mist is sitting over the tops of the mountains but we're not quite a Brigadoon All the cats are in the dog house today....well if I had one, they would be. I got up this morning to a parlour that had been turned into a killing field. Now I know that it's natural for cats to catch birds and mice but I really don't appreciate the remains on my new carpet. Tiny feathers are everywhere and the hoover will be coming out any minute. I have dealt with everything but the tiny feathers and that's a job still to be done. The only ones that I know aren't involved in the chaos are Simon and Rave...they were with me all night. All the others..well they needn't come for a fuss anytime

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be time to hoover. I need some caffeine before I start and then I'll get on. It's going to be quiche and roast potatoes for dinner..I shall go downstairs later and get everything ready. Quiche is one of the things that I make quite often..todays will be an onion and mushroom one. I may make two and then for tomorrow we could have quiche and chips...we shall have to see. I'm off now for my caffeine until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
