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...Christmas Designs 1


Here I am again with a design team make for the wonderful Decoupage Delights. This is the first of a 7 day stint featuring their wonderful Vintage Christmas cdroms 1and 2. I have been lucky enough to present their vintage cds for quite a while now and absolutely love them. If you get the chance please pop over to their facebook page and take a look at all their cds..they are a really great collection and the backing papers alone make them a great resource. For the beginning of my Christmas special week, I have chosen this fantastic image. I like this one because it would be suitable for friends who like a religious card. The amount of decoupage that you get with the image makes it's a stunning card. All I have added is some mirri card and of course I couldn't make a Christmas card without a little glitter. After all it just wouldn't be right. It is a very traditional vintage image..one of so many on these 2 cds.

Now that Halloween is over, it's time for me to get my head down and get on with some serious crafting. I have got lots of ideas in my head but now it's got to the point where I need to be making a goodly pile. No doubt that the cats will spend the next few weeks glittering. It seems that they are no where near me and yet still they are covered in it. Sparkle hates it..he ends up twinkling with out even touching it. Even my old milkman would go back with glitter on him and his wife knew that he had been here..I'm convinced that it's in the air..lol.

Well I'm off to begin with Christmas designs. I'll be back tomorrow with another vintage Christmas make. So until them..take care and happy crafting,
