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.

31 Days of Halloween...Day 18

Another day..another candy skull. This is my page for day 18 of the 31 days challenge. I know that I've done other skulls but I have to say..I love them. All on the news is about mindful crafting and colouring...and I have to say that personally colouring a great candy skull is my perfect way to relax. This image is another from the fabulous SLS Lines.

It's been quite a day today and it's only 4 p.m. I've been up and at them since about 7 this morning and what with cats and phone calls, I don't feel as if I've stopped since my feet hit the floor. All the cats were so pleased when the delivery man arrived with their didn't matter that he happened to bring the rest of the food..they hounded him until they got some. He was laughing at them all and seemed to be very taken with Jeffrey. He said he's a big un isn't He then asked if he always looked so miserable and I said that's his I want biscuits now we gave him some to prove the point.

Also this morning I had a phone call regarding the dropped kerb. I was told that the councillors at our parish council will be discussing the matter later and I said that's funny because I'd had a phone call yesterday from the council saying that I wouldn't get I'll be waiting with baited breath to hear what is said. And then no doubt, I will be back on ringing round everyone

Well the coffee is calling and then I will be back with a design team make. As it is a Christmas card and not suitable for the 31 days challenge, I thought that I would blog this one first. So until after a large dose of caffeine...take care and happy crafting.

  1. Love this sugar skull.
    In the post.

  2. I love the candy/sugar skulls, too. They're just
    so pretty and I imagine fun to color (I've never
    colored one ... will have to remedy that).

  3. This looks so pretty! That is one serious jaw line.

  4. Love these.
    One of these days I'm going to get one.
    thanks for sharing.
