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.

Today's makes are design team makes for the wonderful SLS Lines. These skulls are my inspiration post, which is over on the SLS Lines post. The top skull has been coloured with my promarkers and now forms part of my new cottage sign. The skull below has been papercut and then placed onto a coloured background. I can admit to have a bit of a thing for the whole collection of candy skulls that are available from SLS.

Today's creation is a design team make for the wonderful JB-Crafting Supplies. I have had so many messages about this little book that next week I shall be doing a step by step blog on the JB-Crafting Supplies blog page. This little tag book is made using empty loo roll cardboards as the tag holders. I saw it made on the tv and thought to myself what a brilliant idea. I liked the fact that it was a small book that you could decorate to save anything special. I have made this one to hold pictures of the kittens first year..I just have to add the photos. But you could make a little book to save some special memories..a birthday, a trip out some where..or even pictures of your garden through the year. So if you are one of the ladies that messaged me about this little book..please start collecting your empty cardboard rolls and I will do a step by step make next week. If you need any papers or embellishments, please pop over to Julie at JB-Crafting Supplies and she is bound to find what you either need or want.

We have been so lucky for this week to have been sponsored by the fabulous team over at Aurora Wings. I just love the images that are available here and always have such a hard time deciding which one to choose. I decided to work with amazing image of the lady and the owl for obvious reasons. Since I lost Henry, owls seem to play an important place in my heart.
