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.

A Snowflakes Promise...New Challenge

Here I am again. This time with a design team make for the wonderful team over at A Snowflakes Promise. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the coming fortnight. The theme is anything goes with the option of seasons. As you can see I have chosen this wonderful little fox and gone with a Christmas card.I coloured the image with my promarkers and then mounted it onto some green glitter card. I added this to the card base to which I had added some green card and then some Christmas paper from my stash. I added a die cut greeting to some more of the glitter card. I finally added a die cut bauble which I had mounted onto a different glitter card. You know me and Someone visited yesterday and asked did I know that I was covered in glitter...I just laughed and said that it was the season for it. I remember once going round a supermarket, getting really strange looks and then I realised that I was covered in glitter. The original disco

Over at A Snowflakes Promise. we were so lucky to have been sponsored by the fabulous team over at Oddball Art. I hope that you will pop over and take a look at all the wonderful images that are available.

I'm sat here wondering what to do next. I have a few projects waiting to be the paint may well be coming out. No doubt that means that the cats will be finding their way back in. It's as if word gets out..the paint is out and then the pawprints start twitching to get into The only two in at the moment is Raven and Gannie. little homebody is asleep on my an automatic Gannie is doing what he does best..filling his face with cat biscuits.

Well the coffee is calling again. As a caffeine addict, I need refuelling at regular intervals. Someone once asked me if I was really such a coffee head and I said of course. It's what keeps me going..I've been drinking it for years..and I don't even like myself when I run So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
