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.

Jiggery Makery.....Some Favorites

Today's cards are all design team makes for the wonderful Jiggery Makery. I was looking through a file of older design team makes and came across these cards which I had made a while ago. I loved them and thought that I would share them with you. Sometimes you make cards and then forget about them. Looking through them I can remember what I was thinking at the time. I may try and make these cards again, using the same thought process and see what I can come up with. Now I have a plan for next I do hope that you will pop over to the Jiggery Makery page and take a look at all the wonderful ladies. There is always one that will enable you to make the card that you want.
I've been offline for a few days..all thanks to BT. They cut me off on Tuesday.saying that I hadn't paid my bill...which I had..but they had changed the website and consequently hadn't updated the payment. And then they told me that they couldn't do  anything about would have to wait on the I was off for nearly 24 hours. And then to make matters even worse..when I did get back online..the internet supply was horrible..taking hours to upload anything. Even today it's taken me since 9a.m. to get the photos uploaded onto the blog. And people wonder why I dislike
But enough of me moaning and now back to the Jiggery Makery ladies. I can remember creating the card above. It still makes me smile with it's coffee, tea or me sentiment. In the 70s there was a collection of books called coffee tea or me and it was tales from a group of air stewardesses. They were considered to be quite risky at the time but more than anything I found them to be really funny.

The weather here in the mountains today doesn't really know what to do with itself. It is really windy and it does look like it's raining..a bit of a drizzly cloud really. The cats are in and out but don't seem to be that bothered by the drizzle. I suppose that it's living here that makes them quite hardy..they don't count it as rain unless it's bucketing

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be a matter of organising my work for the weekend. I seem to have a head filled with some very strange ideas. I saw a book made with toilet roll card boards last night and so want to have a go at it. I am going to try and make a step by step project for a design team make next week. It's so funny that sometimes you see matter how strange,,but you just have to have a So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
